Big fun this weekend with two new big kid bikes.  Got them on Saturday afternoon and spent over 2 hours riding around Piedmont Park today.

Lucas goes to Kindergarten!

August 4th, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Doesn’t feel like summer should be over yet, but today was the first day of school here in Atlanta, and a big day in our house since Lucas is off to Kindergarten! We are having a really hard time believing he’s already old enough to get on the bus and go to school all day, but he loved it and can’t wait to go back tomorrow. Here are some photo highlights.

Walking to the bus stop, excited about the new McQueen backpack with matching lunchbox.

Like tons of other parents, we jumped in the car as soon as he was on the bus and rushed over to meet the bus at the front of the school. They had the school mascot out to meet the bus as well. There was an email sent out to parents a couple of weeks ago asking for a volunteer to wear the mascot suit on day 1….next year Thomaz will have to do it!  And Stella had fun seeing one of her BFFs Kaya, whose big sis is starting kindergarten too.

Things got down to business once we got to the classroom, figuring out where to put the bag, finding a seat. He did great!

He got off the bus at the end of the day and had nothing but great things to say about kindergarten!

Stella turns 3!

July 9th, 2014

Stella still likes to think she’s the baby around here, but it’s official she’s a big girl three year old!

We had a fun party last weekend, a pajama brunch, for little Miss would-wear-PJs-everyday-if-they-let-me

And the main attraction was a bouncy house in the backyard!  They could hardly believe it when the guys showed up at 8am to set it up… and for brunch we had doughnut hole kabobs, quiches, yogurt parfaits, and mimosas.  And can’t forget the cupcakes!

Then on her actual birthday, we had a fun family night  (well except for watching Brazil get creamed in the world cup semi-final, yikes!)   After opening presents at home, we got dressed up and went out to Cafe Intermezzo for birthday dessert.   If you haven’t been there, this place has two huge display cases of cakes to choose from and we let Stella and Lucas each pick something for us to share.  Also the kids picked our outfits.  Stella picked mom’s dress and her own (plus frog boots), and Lucas picked his “beautiful shirt” with a tie (so Thomaz’ followed suit!).  Thomaz’ out on on the Town!

Happy 5th Birthday Lucas!

May 11th, 2014

We had a fun birthday weekend over here.  Hard to believe that Lucas is 5 years old already!!  Feels like just yesterday we were bringing him home

Lucas requested an airplane party this year, and when I tried to get him to look at some different options for invitations we could buy online, he said “no no” we can draw airplanes, lemme show you.  And then we proceeded to make 24 invitations like this 🙂  each with their own Lucas original drawn on the front!

We also had fun brainstorming with him what to do for the cake, and decided to make our own runway cake.  Stella helped of course.

Friday after school he got to open his presents.  Stella looks on (with a bit of a jealous face on).   He got a t-ball set from Grandma Jan and Grandpa Clark, and some art supplies from Stella, and a huge Cargo Airplane Lego from mom and dad.  He was pretty happy!

Saturday we had his party in the park across the street, and it looked like it might rain but we got lucky with perfect weather.  Had about 20 kids plus parents, was a really fun time!
