Busy Weekend

 We have had a great few days and I just have to share.  First of all Friday was my husband & my 11th wedding anniversary.  I am so lucky to have found such a great guy to spend my life with and although I would love to say we spent a romantic weekend away, no such luck this year.  

Friday afternoon was Julia's regular appointment with her endocrinologist.  We had a great check up.  Her A1C test (which reflect's her average blood sugars over the last 3 months) came back at a 7.4.  This is down from 7.8 at her last checkup.  So I guess we are doing things right :) The doctor told her she gets an A++ as a patient which she loved.  

After the appointment was the school carnival.  This year my D-Mom friend Cynthia & I had a booth to benefit our JDRF walk.  We sold finger lights and glow necklaces and made over $400 in just 3 hours!!! The kids had a blast and Julia won a fish.  What carnival would be complete without winning a fish?

Saturday was Julia's 6th birthday party with her friends.  She had a blast bowling at Lucky Strike.  

Everyone had a great time.  We had pizza and cupcakes and no low blood sugars.  She was a little high but who could blame her with all the excitement?

Sunday was the family party.  Another great day we had cupcakes and a Hello Kitty Cake that I made.  Not to toot my own horn or anything but Beep Beep.  Check it out...

Not bad huh?  I have always done a bakery cake for the kids & I must say that I am very proud of how this one turned out.  Plus she told me it was the best cake she had ever seen.  The rest of the menu was the birthday girl's choice, cedar plank grilled salmon, caeser salad, rice, cantaloupe & watermelon.  It was delicious.

She had a great time playing with her cousins and the rest of the family.  She got Just Dance for the Wii and it was so funny watching all the kids dancing to Who Let the Dogs Out.  I think I heard that song at least 10 times.  

Monday was her actual birthday and although she had a regular day it was a big day for Joe.  The cast came off!  

The smile says it all...there is good news/bad news as far as the elbow goes.  He can write & do homework again but recess and P.E. are out until school is over.  

We have a little over a week left until school is done for summer.  Someone recently said that there is so much packed into the end of the school year so that you appreciate summer more.  Right now, I am really appreciating summer.
