Brooklyn Had a Birthday Party!

Brooklyn is turning five. I can't believe how fast it goes by. Thank goodness for summer parties. We stick out a slip n slide and we are good to go. I was also lucky to have met a woman at Girls Camp who is a face painter on the side. She gave me a smokin' deal I could not resist. Here are the photos from the party.

Brooklyn sat so still. She did not want to mess it up. She asked for a flower, butterfly, and caterpillar .

Here is the finished product.

The girls loved their paint and kept running back asking to have their paint reapplied.

The daddies even got their faces painted. However the little boys did not want anything to do with the paint. The were good with the painted tattoos.

I love the fear in her eyes.

Make a wish! She does think about it before she blows.

We had a blast. We could not have asked for better weather. I am pretty sure the kids had just as much fun as the dads. Happy Birthday my Brooklyn.

Brain dead

Today was Brooklyn's birthday party. (More on that later.) And I spent a lot of the day in the sun. It left me a bit brain dead.

For instance, consider the moment at the grocery store racking my brain trying to figure out what the last item on the list was:

Colby Jack Cheese

I know I was sent to get ingredients for some type of salsa Tassi was making. "LeMon" is French, not Spanish. Maybe it is a brand and its product is known by the brand, like Kleenex. Then I reluctantly called home to ask what it was that I was supposed to be getting.

A lemon, Brandon. I need you to get me a lemon.

Scrap Skirt

Brooklyn and Camden's new scrap skirt. It is kind of short for Brooklyn but she will not hear of it. Oh well. You can't please everyone.
