Cora's special day

Yes, I am so good at blogging that I am going to blog about Cora's birthday ON her birthday! No delay here! Actually, she is taking an exceptionally long nap since she's so tuckered in from the celebrations of the day so I actually have the time to do it! My Cora is the sweetest thing that has happened to me. Words can't express how much I love her, and how much I love being her mom. She brings me joy every single day. So to celebrate a little on her special day we went with cup cakes to our weekly play group and were pleasantly surprised that there was much more in store!!!

1. Went to park (with friends)

2. Came on just the right day! Teenagers from a mission trip were "spreading happiness" by entertaining children at the park. Free balloon animals--or flowers in Cora's case!
3. Draw with sidewalk chalk

4. Get face painted--with the number 2 of course!

5. Eat cup Cakes!! (the best part)

oh yeah... you can't forget

He was there too.

Tomato time

What to do with the pounds and pounds and pounds of tomatoes that come out of the garden each day? One word: dehydrate. They are so delicious, and we use them in everything!




The turtle

Our neighbors called over the fence to tell us to come look at a turtle in their yard. It was the biggest turtle I've ever seen outside of a zoo. Kids loved it. But it was mysteriously gone this morning. Probably got sick of kids poking at its shell.
