"Ka-Chow" Screamed the Fans

My boys were keeping track, with help from the oldest of course. They new that the premiere of Cars 2 was June 24th and they weren't going to miss it (as far as they could help it at least). For weeks we've been building up to this moment.....And today it finally happened. We went to the first showing of Cars 2 at a local theatre. Made sure to get there 45 minutes early to get good seats, of which we did.

It was thrilling for all of us, great sound, great animation and a fun story line with an underlying message about friendship that we all enjoyed! Ka-chow!!

Ninja Cake

What's a boy's birthday party without a ninja cake??

I took Aidan to a birthday party today, his friend Cameron turned 7 yrs old. The boy energy at this party was just bursting. And just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier, this clever cake was served, sending all the boys into a frenzy. The cake was the hit of the party!

Serendipity at LHS

A rainy afternoon, cancelled ball game, boys getting restless, the thing to do was go to Lawrence Hall of Science with friends. A fantastic dinosaur exhibit that shouldn't be missed. Sure it was a little scary for the 4 yr olds but still an educational experience.

A climb on the whale,

a visit with a t-rex,

the handling of a hissing cockroach,

and the serendipity run in with my mom's group while being creatively challenged in the ingenuity laboratory building dinosaurs from cardboard, all made for a fun afternoon (a little tiring for the mom's, yet fun).

Coffee Addict

Anyone who knows me, knows I'm addicted to coffee. It's one of my all time favorite things. I just have to have my coffee before my day can start, mid-day to keep the day going, and in the pm's if we're having company over and having a special dessert. It especially helped me get through the sleep deprivation of early motherhood.

Even though I've had to switch to decaf for health reasons, it's not stopped my need for coffee. I'm addicted to the whole ritual of having a cup a coffee, as much as, if not more as I was to the caffeine. Because, although I've been able to cut the caffeine (that wasn't easy!) I haven't been able to give up the ritual and let's face it I love the taste of a good cup of coffee too! I'm all about the bold flavor of a nice french roast.

I love my Peet's. Give me a choice of coffee shops and I usually always hold my loyalty to Peet's. That is unless, Blue Bottle Coffee is part of the equation. Of course it's impossible to pass up a fine brew of Blue Bottle organic coffee...a coffee connoisseur's ecstasy. However, when Peet's served me this mocha with a sweet little flower on top it made me feel special! It's those little touches that make the whole ritual of having coffee that much more memorable and keeps me coming for more. I sure love my coffee!
