Piano Recital

On Thursday my students participated in their FIRST piano recital. It was a great success. One of my students has only been playing the piano for a few weeks. The girls did great and I was really glad to see how excited they were about playing the piano!! Anyways, it just made me feel good!

BEST friends

So this weekend I had so much fun. On Thursday I went to my cousin Stefani's graduation. Saw tons of friends and had a great time. Then on Friday I went to breakfast with my sister and some friends from High School. It is so fun to be with such great friends. When I am with them it feels like we have seen each other everyday! That's what great friends are for!!! Then after we went to breakfast I went to my BF from HS, Rachelle's baby shower. It was so fun to see her. She lives in Idaho now and we never get to talk or visit. So it was great , there is nothing like BEST friends!!!
Then after the baby shower I drove back to Pima and then me and my parents drove to my house. So basically I drove 5 1/2 hours. But it was good to be home and to RELAX a little! THANKs to my parents for letting me hang out and for watching my kids while I went to Rachelle's baby shower. They are such great grandparents!!!

Madison turned the BIG 4 yesterday (5/13). I cannot believe it. She had a birthday party at our house and invited lots of friends to come and play. We decorated birthday hats, ate ice cream sundaes, and opened presents. The kids had a complete BLAST. Madison is getting so big and so independent. She is sooo smart and loves learning!

Madison opening her presents, the kids were so excited to see they all just crowded around and it was very hard to get a good pic.

Madison got a "cleaning kit" from Nana and Papa, which by the way was the biggest hit of the party!!!

Gavin loved the scooter that Madison got, he can ride it better tooo!!!

Preschool Graduation - Heritage Zoo

On Monday (5/12) Madison's preschool went to the Heritage Zoo in Prescott to celebrate. The kids had a blast. The favorite animals were the llama, bear, and jaguar. They also got to eat cake and play at the park in the zoo. Madison has had such a great time in Preschool this year and this zoo trip was definitely the icing on the cake!!!

How cute is this! Gavin is trying to climb under the railings to get a CLOSER look at the bear!

This is my favorite picture, Gavin is trying to feed the llamas. How cute,

sorry the pics are so blurry, they are a pic of a pic.

Oh, and I chopped my hair and dyed it really blonde. I really like it though!

All the preschool kids! Madison is in black in the middle.

JC and my bro Justin decided that they would take on the responsibility of re-roofing a house. They had to tear off the shingles and then completely re-roof. They thought that it would take approximately 5 days and they would get paid $2500 each. Sounds like a GREAt deal, right? Unfortunately we have been at my parents house for 11 days now and they are barely finishing up. JC put his last helicopter rating on hold to reroof this house and to make some $$$$ but it has turned into this disaster. The roof is so steep that the boyz cannot stand on it. So they decided to make a "shelf" that they stand on and that's why it has taken forever. They said that this one roof is probably the equivalent to doing 3 roofs. What a mess...but we are going to go home today and hopefully get back to our normal schedule. Anyways, just thought I would share!
