Riley's Birthday Party

So Riley turned 5. Wow! I can't believe that my second oldest is already 5.

We had a killer party on Saturday where we had about 10 little girls running around our house. We learned a few things. First, 1.5 hours would have been long enough for the party instead of the 2 hours alotted. Second, bringing together a gaggle of girls from different parts of a 5-year-olds life can get complicated. They aren't interested in making new friends, so you end up with one or two feeling left out and a lot of drama. Third, those darn pinatas are really hard to break. Steve ended up having to break it himself.

So if you know me at all, you know I made her cake. I asked her what she wanted for her birthday dinner and all she would say was salad. Well that sounded boring so I told her I would make her a salad cake instead. Voila!

For the party we decided to do a water park theme. We had a mini pool, a crazy sprinkler, and only the coolest blow up water slide money could buy at walmart. Needless to say, it was the hit of the party and even Steve tried it out when all the kids were gone.
Well, that's about it. Riley loved her big day and is looking forward to kindergarten!

Here I Am

Okay, here I am people. I know you've been waiting for this for a very long time, and I'm finally getting around to it.

To be completely honest, I haven't been a big fan of blogs or those who are constantly writing them. I feel like people read them and forget to realize that what they are reading is neither fact nor truth, but rather the opinions and edited happenings of the writers life. Reading blogs holds little interest for me when they spout their political views and social standards for the masses to bask in the glow of. It seems self righteous and vain. In my humble OPINION, a blog is only good for recording the events of your life, keeping family updated, friends closer, and if I have anything left to offer, the world entertained.

Perhaps my views will change as I continue to blog (boy I hate that word, it just sounds so ugly) but for now, I will try to keep my opinions to a minimum.
