Well as I expected, I don't really have anything all that special or significant to say or do as part of my 100th post. I don't design digital scrap stuff so I don't have some cool giveaway... and I don't have anything cool to raffle off using a random number generator to my wonderful commentors.... it's just me... here... doing what I do (nearly) every night... for the 100th time. So mostly I just want to say, to those of you who have been hanging with me for these 100 posts, thanks for reading. :)

Yesterday we had another playdate with the Gumm family. Pictured above from left to right are Ashlee, Dylan, Brayden, Jack and Jaxon. The five of them are getting on pretty well these days, as we've been hanging out A LOT. Which I think has been quite nice for all of us. Yesterday we just went to their house to play, and the kids all seemed to have a good time! I expected no less. The highlight of the visit though was when Mrs. Gumm (my new friend, Alyssa, who it turns out I went to elementary school and junior high with for two years in Evergreen - SMALL WORLD!) snagged a yard guy who was going around doing lawn aerating to come aerate their lawn. The kids all stood fixated and completely entertained by the man walking back and forth with his aerator (I'm sure I'm spelling this wrong!). They pretty much thought it was the coolest and funniest thing ever - or at least yesterday.

Today, despite having a super late night (for the boys) last night, we skipped naps and headed up north for Cori and Joey (our nieces)'s 4th birthday party. This event, too, was a fun time for the kiddos. Brayden especially loved decorating his box (for collecting bugs and animals) with stickers. I swear he could have gone at it all day. He loved his stickered box so much that he refused to give it up on the car ride home, even when he passed out with exhaustion. Sadly, I had hoped to share a picture of the birthday girls blowing out their candles, but none of the pictures came out in focus. I had switched a setting on my camera at the park a few days ago to help me get some better swing shots. I forgot to change it back, and I think it's to blame for my inability to FOCUS on the girls. Bummer! They were still so cute though, and I can't believe they are 4! Hope you had a great bday party, Cori and Joey! :)

Also wanted to share real quick about our crazy night last night... we spent the evening at mass and a reception for my high school youth choir directors, in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary. It was a virtual youth choir reunion, and it was so nice to see so many faces we hadn't seen in a long time, catch up, show off the kiddos, and more. It was a lot of fun, and a total blast from the past. Even though the boys were tired, it was still nearly 10pm before we left... I couldn't pull myself away. Makes me miss the good 'ol days......

Happy Anniversary again, Ed and Kelley, and thank you for the amazing impact you have made on so many lives, my own included!
