Juliet had her first haircut last week by our lovely "hair lady" Tonia! We LOVE her! (If you need THE BEST hairdresser with THE BEST prices in L.A. call me and I will share!) Juliet was SO excited to get her hair cut. She had seen her brothers get their hair cut a few times. She was just getting a trim, but to her it was the whole shebang!
Dash turned 7 this year! I copied this cake from Natalie! She made it for her son a couple weeks before. Is Dash particularly fond of owls? No. But I knew he would think it was really cool and special just for him. I was feeling really overwhelmed at the time and was so grateful that Nat had taken all the guess work out of the birthday job for me. I am lucky to have such great friends who pick up the slack when I can't hack it! It takes a village to raise a child and my kids are sure lucky that these women are a part of my village!
Dash stayed home on his birthday and shopped for his cake stuff with me. We went to the Goodwill bookstore and he picked out 6 books just for him. They gave him one just for free too. He thought he was a rock star!
now that's a good cupcake!
The next week we headed to Chik-Fil-A with his buddies to celebrate because they had a game truck. (they thought I rented it for his birthday.....it was there for a family night.....I let them think what ever they wanted to think!)

This is what the first week of our summer looks like. It's a favor. A BIG ONE! ;) We are Duck sitting for a week. Ducks are easy right?
And this right here is why I would agree to duck sitting. Something that would bring all three of these guys together for over 2 hours has got to be worth the headache. right?
Darby graduated from grade school..... sigh..... I don't like it at all. I don't like that she looks like this. I don't like that she is going to Jr. High next year. I don't like that she can baby sit...oh wait yes I do. I don't like that my baby is growing up! This picture made me cry.
