We went to an indoor rec center instead. My friend Andrea, her daughter Anna, my sister Katie and her son Colin joined us for the fun.
She has been asking for a while, "Mom, can I have some of that (gum)?" I kept responding, "When you are three." Well guess what, three came sooner than I expected. Maggie Moo reminded me of my promise, so here she goes . . .
Not tryin' to brag of course, but I've heard many children swallow their first piece of gum right away. I must have a gifted gum chewer on my hands. I am so, so proud.
A few days later, I took her for a little haircut.
Doesn't she look so grown up?
I'm throwing in a little Father's Day pic too, as long as I'm doing a catch up blog.
Here is Megan presenting Daddy with the yearly traditional gift - a garden stone with her footprints in it. He was so shocked :)
Sorry for the boring post. My typical hysterical self is in a pregnancy induced coma.
Please forgive me.

Since my camera was right there on the counter, I snapped some pictures of the crime scene.
(Trying not to laugh, of course.)
I really had to try not to laugh when I asked her what she wanted for breakfast and she replied,
"I had breakfast already, Mommy. I had candy for breakfast."
But I absolutely couldn't stop myself from laughing when I went through the pictures on my camera and realized my little bandit had PHOTOGRAPHED HERSELF during the act.
Yep, that's my not-at-all-sneaky candy bandit.

I almost hired a juggler and a magician to entertain the kids. I also considered having someone bring a petting zoo to the backyard. Then I remembered the stupid recession, the dwindling 401k, the period of unemployment when I vowed to change my spend-thrift ways . . .
Very first birthday

It will definitely not go into the Hall of Fame as one of my best cakes but cut me some slack. I'm seven and a half months pregnant over here :)
Boots the Monkey is missing from the cake. Megan ate him. She almost ate Map too but I caught her in time.
Tomorrow is the big party! Can't wait!

Soak your veggies and meat for 3-4 hours or more in a giant bowl. (It doesn't have to be blue, but if you're jealous of my classy bowl you can pick one up for $1.99 at your local Walmart.)
Once they are done soaking, place your meat and veggies on skewers.
Wrap them tightly in aluminum foil and place on the grill for 10-15 minutes to steam them.
Take them out of the aluminum foil and continue grilling "until they seem done." (John's words)
If you're really lucky, you have a hunk of burning love to grill them for you. I can't decide what looks more delicious, St. John or the kebobs. Total toss up.
Watching him cook for me makes me sing him a song. I guess you could call it "our song." I've put it on the blog before. They simply don't write romantic songs like this anymore folks.
Let me take a moment to dedicate some of my favorite lyrics to my favorite guy in the world . . .
"Ummm, youre packed and you're stacked specially in the back. Brother, wanna thank your mother for a butt like that. Can I get some fries with that shake-shake boobie? If looks could kill you would be an uzi"
I love my St. John so much. Like so much, if I were a shish I'd want him to be my kebob. Now that's love!

Remember last September's romantic getaway to Mexico???
It was a fun trip and could hardly be considered a sacrifice.
(But don't you think for a second I'm not going somewhere more exotic than Cincinnati in 2010 :)
