So last year I purchased 2 beautiful peonies. I was so thrilled when they came back this year! I was anxiously awaiting their bloom. Then tragedy struck - Cooper ripped 1/2 of one of the plants out of the ground! No blooms from that one! I hope there is enough of it left that it will come back next year. Not to worry! I still had one plant and it had several buds on it! Sadly, one by one, those blooms got pulled off by my adorable and destructive boys until there was just one left! I protected that remaining bloom and threatened my boys if they came near! Finally, the day came when Noah excitedly ran in the house and exclaimed, "Mom! Your bologna is blooming!!" I love that kid! ;)

I figure I better update my blog before Kimberly removes me from her list! ;)
Today seems like a great day to do it. Today is Noah's 7th birthday!! I cannot believe it has been 7 years since Noah entered the world! He has grown into such an awesome kid! I am so blessed to be his mom. I love that he's not too big to want to snuggle with me and even thought he'll tell you Daddy is his favorite, he and I both know that he's a Mamma's boy! ;)
We have had a great day today. We went out to breakfast where he enjoyed a delicious chocolate smiley face pancake. He was surprised when the Ihop staff sang happy birthday to him and brought him an ice cream sundae after breakfast. I don't normally let him eat ice cream for breakfast!
After breakfast, we headed to Julia Davis park to ride the paddle boats. Noah and Grammy were in one boat and Adam, Cooper and I were in the other. I appreciated having Adam to help me paddle! It is quite a workout!! It was a beautiful morning and it was very enjoyable. We saw ducklings and even a turtle! Did anyone else know that there were turtles in the pond??? We say two but one bailed off the branch as soon as we got close.
After the paddle boats we headed over the Friendship Bridge to Boise State where the boys played on the statues before heading in to see Ms. Karen. The boys think it is so fun to see my office - I don't feel the same way on my day off!
After a quick stop in the office we headed back to the park for a picnic lunch. The geese were very interested in joining us, so we had to keep shooing them away.
We spent the rest of the day hanging out around the house. Tomorrow is Noah's party - we are seeing Cars 2! I hope it's as good as the first one.
I will make it a priority to keep this blog updated more often - of course, I'm not sure if anyone besides Kim reads it! Oh well, I'll keep you updated anyway, Kim! ;)
