Filling in the Blanks and random photos

Since I cannot seem to form very many sentences of my own lately, I have decided to resort to an old favorite, the Friday Fill-In. I kind of miss blogging, and maybe this will jumpstart me to a new beginning.

1. Birthdays are very fun celebrations at our house. Middle boy is celebrating his 1/2 birthday next weekend as he decided he would like a summer party. A Star Wars cake and laser tag party are in the works!

2. I can't decide which season is my favorite season because they each bring their own unique joys and celebrations. I love camping and beaching in the summer, the beauty and coolness of fall, winter snow, and the relief of spring.

3. I feel my best when my boys are happy and our whole family is together enjoying the outdoors. And when I am exercising and taking care of myself. And when I am sharing time with my mom. All those things make me feel relaxed.

4. A lovely fresh garden salad with egg and homemade dressing is my favorite food!

5. First impressions are maybe more important than they should be, but they are often telling.

6. The best piece of advice I ever received was to trust my own instincts as a mother. I got it from LaLeche League and it has resonated throughout my motherhood.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a family sleepover at the Museum of Science in Boston, tomorrow my plans include more museum fun, exercise, and rest and Sunday, I want to garden and play at the beach!

Hi Christa -- Glad you are back in blogland. The boys and the beach and camping and half-birthdays and Science Museum overnights -- sounds like a blogging break was necessary to make room for Life! :)
It all sounds wonderful ...

What a lovely blog you have!~ I so like the picture of you smiling, in red: beautiful! I also love time with my mom, when my boys are happy, and each spectacular season. I'd have to disagree with salad in favor of chocolate. :P It's nice to meet you.

oh the sleepover sounds like fun! They have a baseball exhibit there I was thinking of taking Dad to. Have you gone to their 4th of July? It's awesome up on the roof!

Thanks for playing, have fun this weekend :-)

Glad you're back. I can help you out with #4. I've got lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and eggs fresh from the backyard.
