Eli was out of town at a week of Army training this week. My mom and sister, Julie, came into town to help with the big kids while G & I tackled cheerleading camp (yay). The kids were in the throes of swimming lessons this week (week 2 of 2) and we spent a day after swimming lessons at the splash pad.
On the weekend, the "Aunt Squad" came down from OH & PA to reunite with their older sister and their nieces (great and otherwise). Mimi may have brought squirt guns with her. Oscar may have attacked his great aunts with them. :)
Gladys got some good Mimi time. Look! Pinkie twinkies!
It was nice to have family around, a house full of women...and Oscar. Love you guys!
Also, I turned 35 this week. I feel like I have street cred as an adult--finally!! I came home from cheer camp and they surprised me with cupcakes and flowers and balloons! I think the last time I had a party for my birthday was when I turned 30, and Elsie was a wee baby. Despite my husband not being here, it was a good birthday. We'll celebrate with him next week...for his birthday, too!
