Birthdays, blondes and baby showers

Squidge had her birthday party on Saturday. We had a very good time and had loads of family and friends over. The kids had a blast in the pool and there was lots of food to eat and beverages to drink.

Today I went to my cousin Jay and his wife Elizabeth’s baby shower. Lots of people there as well.

I finally have my hair the color I wanted. It’s a medium blonde.

We didn’t end up going to NYC on Thursday because my Dad’s Explorer blowed up!! He’s planning on buying a new one- I think a Honda Pilot so as soon as we have reliable wheels we’re off to NYC. Wallywoo is off to Jordan this week. Everyone keeps asking when he’s coming over to the US. I keep telling them I don’t know but probably sometime mid July. Summer is a busy travel time for him so I just can’t say. We miss him a lot and can’t wait to see him.

I’m still adjusting to being back here w/ my VERY loud family. It’s just the three of us back in Manchester and all these people are giving me a headache. My parent’s have had my sisters three kids since the 20th and I think they have cured me of my desire for a second child. All the bickering and whining and just the general sibling stuff- ARGH! I don’t know how my sister does it. Anyhoo they’re back home now and will be returning on Tuesday night.

I’m trying to download photos and will post some as soon as I can get my Dad’s computer to recognize my camera.
