Dirty Thirty and Laura Ingalls Wilder

Part of our Saturday involved a snack, blanket and book.  Maddison seems to have left the "picture books" behind calling them "baby books".  So, I broke out one of my favorites, Little House on the Prairie to read.  I gave the kids some background information, and then we took this blanket to an open spot by the creek.  We imagined how it would be like to live there without all the things we have now.  The kids were super listeners as we read the first chapter.  It will be interesting to see if they make it all the way through the book.

Last week, Amanda celebrated her "dirty thirty" birthday.  We went to Red Lobster for a rare mid week celebration. I usually prepare the birthday person their requested meal, but Amanda and Josh are very scheduled for the next few weeks with camping and graduations, so we had to squeeze the event in on a Tuesday.  It was a fun meal, and I was glad to get a picture of the family.  Jessica and Scott also went with us, but they weren't in this picture.  Happy Birthday, Amanda!
