Time to play catch up again..
Last Saturday the cub scouts had their rain gutter regatta. Unfortunately Wyatt lost early in the competition, that boy could not keep his eyes on his own sail so every time he blew it was everywhere but into the sail.
Wyatt's buddy Dominic took 1st place for the 4th year in a row. pretty awesome
Kelly's friend Madi spent the night Saturday and went with us to church on Sunday.
We came home from church, had lunch and then went to Chuck E Cheese for a birthday party. Pure craziness. No way will I ever do that to myself.

Sunday evening Rob surprised me by taking me out to dinner with some family and friends. We ate at the new Sushi Garden restaurant. Now, we have been going to the old location for years and really liked the ambiance. The new venue, while stylish and modern, with quick service, was way too loud. We could barely hear each other and we were seated in corner.
We probably won't be back unless it is just the two of us.
Monday night was girls scouts and the leader made 10 giant cupcakes and I made 10 different colors of frosting. The girls decorated their hearts out and the results were pretty cool and yummy.
They were also sweet enough to sing happy birthday to me was my birthday!!!

 Anyway, Rob had asked me what is something fun I wanted for my birthday. When my suggestions of a weekend alone in a hotel room to scrapbook and someone to clean the house were met with a shake of the head and an "I don't think so" I had to think some more.
After cruising around Pinterest for a few days, my creative mojo has been jumping so I asked for some spray paint in bright colors.
Boy did my family and friends deliver.
By the end of Monday night I ended up with 24 cans of spray paint! (and with some birthday money bought 4 more)

Monday afternoon I received my happy gift. One that is guaranteed to make me smile. My friend LaDonna and her little man Bryson got me
30 balloons attached to a birthday bag full of spray paint! It was my UP moment
I LOVE balloons. I really love balloons.
Then they took me out to lunch,  very yummy.
This has been a great birthday this year. Busy but really good.
Now I have already painted a pot for my new plant an ocean blue and painted a basket a happy sun yellow. Now I'm starting to look at changing some of my photo frames to some happy colors. That kiwi lime is calling my name.
More adventures coming this weekend, I'll be seeing you soon

Have to admit that I really enjoyed the regatta. Poor Wyatt, he did not take losing very well, but within a few minutes he was back to his usual self. It was fun watching the competition heat up the way it did, but Dominic did a really good job.The one thing you didn't show a picture of was the emptying of the rain gutters....

Sushi Garden was ok, but I prefer the old place, more ambiance. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Happy Birthday daughter
