Keeping Up With...Family (Adrian's Birthday)

After taking Mother's Day off, I fell behind on stuff around the house and still haven't really caught up.  I'm doing my best this week and really looking forward to this 3 day weekend to catch up and hopefully get a little ahead of the game.

So I told you about Mother's Day, but didn't tell you about the week before, or Adrian's birthday which was the day before Mother's Day.  The week before was teacher appreciation week.  AJ dressed up most days to go with the theme that his school was doing.
AJ as a pirate - Arg!
The boys also colored a thank you card for each of their teachers and gave them a candy bar that we are selling for tee ball anyway.  The teachers were all very happy to get the special treat.  It doesn't seem like enough, we are blessed with amazing teachers for the boys and I am SO thankful for that!!

Adrian's birthday is May 10th so we always take the whole weekend to celebrate both holidays.  We had big plans this year, but most of them didn't work out because of weather and other commitments.  So we had a calm celebration this year.  It started with picking up Chinese for dinner Friday night for dinner, then having Graeter's Ice Cream "Uncle Tom style" - which means I bought a bunch of flavors and we mixed them up at home.  Yum!

Saturday the weather was horrible so we had to cancel a planned outside day and relocate to inside.  I had to teach that morning so I stopped and got us a treat on the way home:
Gigi's Cupcakes!
We spent the rest of Saturday playing games with the kids, both board games and video games.  We gave Adrian his presents - Game of Thrones Season 3 and 2 new video games.  We also made sausage calzones for dinner, they were so good I forgot to snap a picture.  And between Fri and Sat nights, Adrian & I finished up the most recent season of Parenthood.  Such a great show!  It wasn't exactly how we planned it, but we made the best of it and had a really great weekend!

Happy Birthday Adrian!!!
