School program, VBS and a birthday

This past month the little girls had a school program and it was at a local pool that we love and it was so fun!  The girls sang their songs and did their program and then everyone in the school got to play at the pool.  To end the night they sent every kid with a gift - fireworks to use at home.   Since Jon was gone for part of the month I had the girls save the fireworks until he was back to help me out.   It was a blast!
One of my favorite weeks of the summer each year is VBS or church camp and since they don't have camp here we always do VBS.  To make things even more exciting this year I signed us all up for 2 VBS that ran the same week.  Each morning we headed to the local chapel and helped with the chapel VBS and then at night we would pick up some friends and go to a local church's VBS where I got to volunteer in the 3 year old room.  Needless to say we would go to VBS come home and nap, eat a snack, head out to the second VBS where they fed us dinner and then come home and go back to sleep.  The girls were exhausted but it helped keep us all occupied while Jon was needing some extra time to get some school work done for his career course.  
For my birthday I was kidnapped by a friend who brought a babysitter with her to watch the girls and was whisked off to a lunch with grownups!  A few days before we had a bunch of ladies and littles meet us at a local beach and while we were there one friend rented a paddle board.  While we got ready to try it out a lady who was there offered to give me a free lesson since she was an instructor.  We all enjoyed the beach and board until the skies opened up and had to make a retreat from the beach BUT not before we got some homemade oreos!! That is right my birthday cake was homemade oreos by my awesome friend and they were so amazing.
