Busy...Busy...and Preschool Graduation!...

We have been SO busy. James is back at the river this weekend for his annual "boys river trip" it's just been me and the kids this weekend.

Chasey graduated from preschool on Friday. It was SOOOO cute! She was so nervous and so excited! Her little tummy was hurting that morning from nerves! She did great and sang louder than the other kids and knew all of her sign language. The kids all wore cap and gowns. The whole thing was less than 15 minutes...but it was so awesome to see my little girl growing up! Her dad & crew, Grandma, Aunt Gina and my friend Kathy and her kids were all there to celebrate with us.

We made cute vases for Teachers Gifts....inspired by The Anderson Crew

Chasey got to pick where we went for dinner after...Of course...It was SUSHI! She chose sushi over McDonalds!! THAT'S my girl!! :)

Yesterday I volunteered for a Charity Golf Tournament for Fight ALD. I drove around and helped serve beer, sell mulligans and take photos. It was super fun. The kids came and joined me for the dinner and awards ceremony. I bought raffle tickets and put Chasey's name on them and she won a limited edition bottle of Sawyers Triple Beer from Stone Brewing Co.! was pretty funny that she won. She was really confused! I took a million pictures...but not with my camera so I don't have any to post here today.

and a random...Why I love summer picture....

Off to the beach today...let's hope the marine layer is gone by the time we get there! June is the strangest weather month is Southern was freezing cold 2 days ago (well...freezing as in 60's and windy!) and today it's supposed to be in the 80's!

Happy Sunday!

Louisville...and F*& hard drive crashed!

I swear...we never slow down! We go, go, go...and when we have a weekend to relax, I usually have it overplanned by Friday just because I hate to "not have plans" It drives James C-R-A-Z-Y and I've been told I cannot make ANY more plans for the summer! I already have the majority of weekends booked up until Chasey starts kindergarten at the end of August...Holy cow...MY BABY STARTS KINDERGARTEN! Yes, I know it's happening...but typing just can't believe it!

Another weekend of Madness around here...We took off to Louisville, Kentucky for the weekend...Yes...flew all the way there and back...JUST for the weekend! And it was OH SO WORTH IT!!!

I have one aunt and uncle that live in Louisville...the rest drove over from Southern Illinois where my entire family lives...My mom, step-dad, dad, step-mom, brother, sister, sister-in-law and my niece were all there. Fun, fun weekend!

Lots of fun was had in the backyard....

Introduced the kids to horse racing at Churchill Downs!

James drank Mint Juleps...just because "he had to" since we were in Kentucky!

Back home, back at work....and my Mac took a dump this morning!! I've had it for four years and never had one single problem...I was on Facebook this morning before work and it froze...and it's done! sad...A guy here at work is going to put a new hard drive in it for me this weekend. I backed up my photos a couple of months I think I lost the last couple of months...but it's better than losing a couple of years like I hear horror stories about! And...I send my family kodakgallery albums almost weekly so I have tons of pictures in there!

Off to the River tomorrow...again...go, go,'s how I like it! :)
