It's been about 2 weeks since we got back from California and my kids still ask about twice a day if we are going back to Meema Jan and Grandpa Allen's house today? My Aunt Jan let's my whole family come down every summer for a little R&R. I get to go to IKEA while Scott and the kids wear themselves out in the pool. It's a win win. Thanks Jan and Allen for all of your pampering. Garrett you are the favorite Uncle for sure!!
While in California a few weeks ago, I got to use my birthday preasent from my sweet husband! He bought me broadway tickets to Phantom of the Opera. I had never seen a broadway play and was extatic! So My mom, Grandma and my mom's 2 sisters got tickets as well and we had a "Casey girls" night out. The play was amazing!! The set changes, the costumes and the singing were so awesome. And for those of you that have seen it before you might agree with me when I say that the boat on the water part is the coolest. I don't know how they do it.
And yea sorry mom Julie never got a chance to photo shop your eyes open so I'll put them both on. Sorry.

Connor loves to do anything with just his Daddy! So when Free Fishing Day came around Connor was up at the crack of dawn telling me all about the blue striped fish and the big whale that he was gonna catch later that day.
My little Elise is now 5 years old and all she wanted for her birthday was a Cowgirl party. So since this is an "even" year she got it! I get so into birthdays I love them and I really want my kids to remember that we loved to celebrate them. First we had a party with Grandma Pam and Grandpa Bud on her actual birthday cause they weren't gonna be in town later. Then she invited all her girlfriends to the cowgirl party and we had horse races and all the girls won blue ribbons, we panned for gold and made nap sacks full of candy. I had never seen her get so excited for all her friends to be there. It was too fun!!!
P.S. Connor did start the day off wearing pants, but went to free fishing day with his dad and came home smelling like fish so bad that I couldn't put his clothes back on him after a lengthy shower, so we opted for naked cowboy.
