Graduation Day

Despite the 2 hour ceremony and 4 hour long wait for the festivities to be over the girls
were such troopers. This picture makes me want to cry because they look soo big.

Congratulations Robert!

It's official, Robert is now a graduate for the 3rd time. I'm so proud of you Rob! What an accomplishment. You are such an inspiration to me and the girls. How many people can
say they've graduated from the University of Chicago with a Masters in Financial Mathematics.
Yes, it took 3 years and we were all ready for you to be done but you taught us that through
determination, hard work and a lot of prayer ANYthing can be accomplished. Way to Go!!!

Thanks to dad, Leslie, and Mary for taking the time to come out and celebrate with us. We had such a great time showing you guys around the city and celebrating this special day with Robert.

A Beautiful Day At The Park

So, our Sunday afternoons are spent at the park enjoying the warmth of the sun.
Chloe received a bike for her birthday and Ava received a little tykes car. They
love riding their toys to the park despite the fact that a now 10 minute walk takes
40 minutes-oh well!

May Birthdays

The month of May is pretty busy around here. Chloe is now officially six and Ava is now three. It's crazy having their birthdays only 3 days apart. We're still trying to work out the whole share a birthday or celebrate on your own special day. Because my sister and her fiance' decided to fly out for the weekend to celebrate the girl's birthdays we decided to celebrate on the same day.

Chloe requested a manicure party for her and 6 of her friends and Ava opted for an Elmo party:>) love that little one!

Here are some pictures of the party. Thanks again Aunt Jean and Uncle Jay for taking the time out to come and celebrate their birthday's with us. It wouldn't have been the same without you guys!

Summer Time

Okay, it's officially summer here in Chicago. How do I know that? Well,
it's been in the 90's + this past week. Don't get me wrong I'm loving the heat
but what happened to spring? We went from the 50's to the 90's-welcome to
Chicago. I"m really looking forward to summer with my girls. Chloe is out of
school and the girls and I are ready to hit the beach!

I noticed that I haven't been on the blog in quite sometime so the next few
postings will be a mish mosh of events from the past 2 months. Enjoy!
