Happy 21st!

My first born turned 21 on Sunday. We had a party with family and friends over at my parents house. Lots of fun and a big cake :) My children are surely a blessing. Twenty one years flew by. I know it won't be long until he is out on his own, but for now I am still enjoying every minute he still lives with us. I couldn't be prouder in what he has already accomplished in the first 21 years. I can't wait to see what lies ahead for him. He are a few pictures from Sunday. Happy Birthday!

Mary Poppins

This weekend I took younger son to see Mary Poppins downtown. The show closed Sunday so we just made it. It was wonderful! The choreography was so good. I think our favorite was Step In Time. The cast was a very talented group. The kids that played Michael and Jane had great vocal range. We enjoyed every minute of it. Our seats were two rows from the very top of the theatre, but the view was still good. The actor that played Bert already played this roll in London and New York. He was so good! After Younger son and I had dinner reservations at the Rainforest Cafe. It was our first time there and really enjoyed the setting. The food prices were higher then we would usually do, but for a special occasion it was well worth it. The whole place was a jungle and even had a rainbow set up in part of the room. The big thing everyone is seen ordering there is the desert they are famous for, a chocolate volcano that comes out with a sparkler lit in the middle. We were too full to try it, but if the three of us go back we will get one to split. A very fun day!

Guess who was able to get to the groomers today and have a bath? We found a new groomer that Milo loves. He can walk around and play with other dogs. Today was the happiest I have seen him! They were wonderful with him. Normally he doesn't like many people or dogs. I was worried in the open environment they have, but he did really well! If you are looking for a groomer, Pretty Paws in Oak Forest is great! He came home and was so tired he plopped on his bed and slept most the day!

Rehearsal For Seussical June 28, 2009

Younger son is in full blown rehearsal for Seussical The Musical! It is a community theater about 20 miles from here. He is having a great time. I am SO glad he is driving now. Rehearsals are 4 hours long and 4 days a week. This is the big month of rehearsals. The musical starts the second week in August. He is now a Who Citizen, a Who Cadet, a sea horse, a zebra and a circus animal. The musical has 40 numbers. Younger son is in 20 of them. Seventeen on stage and three off stage. So lots of costume changes! I can't wait to see them all. When I went to a practice to take some pictures I was able to see the fish heads for the younger kids. They are so adorable! The seamstress is doing an amazing job!

Wow,the pictures when clicked on are huge! I know the quality is poor too. I had to take them all with no flash and low lighting. It didn't help that everyone was dancing and wouldn't hold still for the pictures ;)

Our Church Picnic & Contemporary Service June 27, 2009

We recently had our church picnic along with our contemporary service. Younger son played bongos for the service. When I arrived I found him filling balloons for the younger kids before the service. I didn't stay too long because it was hot and muggy, but at least the rain held off. Younger son went and helped set up earlier in the day. They had a lot of entertainment for the younger kids. Inside was all the food. It ended with a family movie. A very nice day. I though I would post a couple of pictures.
