Cj's 8 years old!

I can not believe Cj is eight years old and Ryan is six. He had the best time at his Birthday party, the best party yet! He is getting to be such a socialite compared to many years of crying and just wanting the party over. He does not want any party to stop now! As you can see, Ryan now insist on wearing a suit jacket and dress shirt to all Birthday parties. Too funny, he takes after his Papa!

Life really does go by quickly, so this summer I plan on having lots of fun! We have the van now so life really is easier. Both boys are out of school in a couple weeks. Ryan has camp in early July and August and is going to give soccer camp a shot! Cj has only 4 weeks off from school so I am planning some trips. I am planning a three day camping trip in Maine or New Hampshire. My husband hates to rough it, but I want the kids to try sleeping in a tent, looking at the stars, cooking marshmallow's, fishing and then hopefully eating some fresh fish on the grill. I will try to find a camp ground with a shower and toilet for hubby. However, I still think we will end up in a hotel! We also plan to spend a couple weekends in Maine with my sister in law and most definitely a couple trips to Cape Cod.

One of my favorite places on earth is Chatham, down the Cape, where I spent most of my summers growing up. We have friends to visit and many place to go where I reflect on some of the best memories of my life. We also plan on fishing, shopping, lots of beach time and eating at some great places. Someday I hope to buy a small place in or near Chatham. It's a dream, but you can dream and sometimes they do come true!
