There is always a tinge of sadness after a good weekend ends. We rocked this weekend out and it felt good.
The kids were outside ALOT. The smell of spring is in the air and it shows because my boys have stripped down to shorts. There is some kind of unwritten rule in our house that when the temperature tops 80, boys do not wear shirts!
Any given time during the summer you can pull into my driveway and you will be welcomed by 5 shirtless and shoeless young boys. I don’t complain because HEY less laundry for me!
Shirts never come out of the drawer unless there is a car ride in mind.
My hubby and I worked on the yard. The boys helped…..we are getting excited about summer. I know I know we are just about to enter spring but summer is just around the bend!
We painted the shed Barn Yard red! LOVE
He built garden boxes…..Wow did he build those boxes. Love love and double love!
We celebrated the holiday my Patrick is for sure was made especially for him! Ol St Patrick himself! My brother was in town and well that is special….he is special and I love to spend time with him.
To top the weekend off we celebrated the perfect birthday for a precious little girl who was very sick just a short time ago. One year ago to be exact. We all questioned whether or not there would be a first birthday party. We questioned if she would ever make it out of the hospital. This sweet girl was born with PPHN otherwise known as Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension.
Well let me tell you she did and sweet girl turned 1! Her parents celebrated and so did we! Happy Birthday baby girl!
This week is the celebration of National Down Syndrome Day, March 21st. I will be hosting giveaways from now till then on my facebook and this blog. The donations come from the amazing artists Grace has had the pleasure of modeling for as well as some of their friends. These wonderful people invited her into their advertising with open arms. Please check out their stores and facebook pages. You will not be sorry, these women are talented and I am so glad to know them!
Stay tuned to a special post on the 21st honoring this special day and some wonderful families.
