What we have been up to...

The past few days have just flown by for us! Lots going on around here and Rachel is getting so excited for school to be over and summer vacation to begin!

  Saturday evening we went out to dinner with another couple-no kids!!! They have two girls also and we usually get together about once a month and have dinner with all of us. But this time, we decided we would go out with just the grown ups. We went to a restaurant near Atlanta- Pura Vida - and all the food comes as an appetizer. So you order about 10 to 12 items and everyone shares. It was a lot of fun and really good food. The owner of the restaurant was on Top Chef last year. After dinner we walked a down to an Italian gelato store for dessert. It was a great night and we are already planning a night out for June.

On Sunday after church we spent some time out in the backyard. It is already feeling like summer here- on Sunday it was ninety degrees and humid. So I put on the sprinkler and let the girls play. Rebecca wasn't quite sure about it at first, but seemed to like it after awhile. I also have a little activity table that she doesn't use anymore, so I filled it with water and she loved playing with it too.

I just love her chubby little legs!


Then today was Dragon Pride Day at Rachel's school. The principal comes to each class and hands out awards for students with good grades, most improvement, good citizenship,etc....
Rachel did really well again and she received two awards this time.

Congratulations from the principal-Mrs. Torbush

When we got home from school, there was a package from my parents. They had sent gifts for the girls and a card for Rachel to celebrate her first year of school.  My Mom and Rachel both love to go to Wendy's for a frosty, so my parents sent money for us to go to Wendy's for dinner sometime. Rachel didn't waste anytime, and we went for dinner tonight! Thanks Nana and Papa!
