So much to say

I haven't posted anything in a while! Sorry! The past few weeks have been a blur. I took a neonatal resuscitation class so I can work with a midwife as a birth assistant. I will be doing another class this week and the week after that. I am pretty excited. I love anything to do with birth. If I am done having babies I will live vicariously through others! I will need help with child care. So, if you might be interested let me know. (I plan on compensating whomever helps)

The girls have played in their wading pool and slip n' slide! They have really enjoyed it! The weather has been very warm and humid. I don't think I was quite ready for summer. Spring could have lasted a few more weeks.

Our garden is growing. We have tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, green beans and strawberries this year. I am planning on freezing green beans. I don't have the storage space for canning. I do plan on making strawberry jam. I plan on canning that though.

Water Park

We went to the water park on Wednesday. Such fun! The girls had a really great time. It wasn't too crowded. The water was warm. They have two different pools. The biggest one is a zero entry pool with a small water slide (think playground slide) and a part that curves around. All at a max of 3 feet. The other pool is a small lap pool that goes from 4 ft. to 6 ft. They also have a really big slide. We didn't go on it though. Matilda was too short and Bella was just barely tall enough and she couldn't ride down with one of us. She is a bit timid with new things. Maybe next time. My parents kept Mr. Biscuit for us. He loves to swim but we wanted to be able to spend time with just the girls. Of course Biscuit didn't mind. He got to take a nap with Nanny holding him! Rough life! After swimming we went back to my parents' house for dinner. I dropped off a casserole which mum put in for us. As promised there are no pics! My camera stayed safely at home. Besides, I had to wear my stupid maternity suit top! Not taking pictures in that! Sigh! I think I better find a new suit before my parents open their pool.

Look at all those teeth. He has one more than when this pic was taken.
New dresses that Grandma made.

The girls favorite thing! Reading!

A few more pics! Tonight we are going swimming at the local waterpark. Can't wait! I don't think I am going to take my camera though. Water and electronic devices never do well with me in the vicinity!

Weekend Report

Last week my in-laws were in town. We had a good time. The girls were positively thrilled with Grandpa and Grandma's attention for the whole week. We went to the zoo one day. The weather was gorgeous. Gpa and Gma took each of the girls out individually for a treat. Since it was Matilda Monkey's birthday on Friday. Her treat involved the toy store! We had a birthday party on Thursday evening. Delicious cake and ice cream and presents what more could a girl want! I will post more pics and details of the past week or so later!
