Chelsea has been going to dance lessons since she was 2 years old. She really enjoys learning her dance moves and even singing a long with the songs. She has a great memory sometimes she surprising me with how much she can retain. Even though she is shy for the most part she attempts to do the different routines. She evens wants me to practice with her. I used to take dance lessons and even was in choir for a few years growing up so I know that she gets that from me. I love all of the little adventures with my daughter. She really brightens up my day and I am happy to have her by my side. Continue reading

Chelsea loves looking at the pictures and trying to read the words herself for 3 years old I think that is pretty good. Since we mainly just have times when its the 2 of us we love just relaxing with a good book. Continue reading
This year has been going by so fast. I am having a hard time believing that it is already June. Chelsea and I have plans to enjoy this summer thoroughly. We have 2 playgrounds in our neighborhood as well as an indoor playground at the Mall nearby that we love spending a few hours of our day at. Chelsea really loves going to the one at the mall since its indoors and we get to walk around the mall and enjoy the sights. This summer has been so hot so far. Its been over 100 degrees every day so far we haven’t even really had any cool mornings its been in the 90’s when we are heading to work. We are always looking for things to do indoors but away from the big crowds and not too costly.
Our mall has been doing some renovations and they are actually not even halfway complete. We are so excited for Boulevard Mall to turn into a family fun center. They have already opened Johns Incredible Pizza and are now in the middle of construction of Seaquest Aquarium. We are so excited for the Aquarium to open this fall. Since it is close to my home and work we plan on going there frequently. Boulevard Mall is not your average mall a lot of the stores, restaurants and entertainment are small businesses. They do have some of the well known stores as well. Once all of the renovations are complete they will be opening a movie theater and a trampoline place just to name a couple places.
This past few weeks have just be traumatic for us. We went have been a family of 7 (our pets included) to a family of 5. One of our dogs seemed to be going on a downhill slope. She was almost 11 years old and for awhile seemed like she had a few more years in her. She ended up getting a tumor on her hip that made her have a hard time walking and she seemed that she was in a lot of pain. We tried our best to help Bella the one that had been getting sick. We have always been living check by check and trying to survive. All of the medical bills that it would of taken just was not in our budget and there was a large chance of her getting the tumor back. We had to let Bella go up to heaven. I know that she is no longer suffering and is up with my grandparents and mom. Continue reading
Chelsea and I really enjoy learning how to create different origami figures. My Sister in Law is from Japan so these books have been a great way to connect with her. My family has a great big background of crafting several of my cousins, aunts and even siblings love to be creative. I love to share that with my daughter Chelsea. We seem to have started this series on reviewing origami books and ideas. It is very relaxing doing these types of paper crafts.

Summer time means lots of picnics in our family and we can’t go wrong with Smithfield lunch meats. We love that they have small snack wraps of ham and cheese as well as turkey and cheese. Chelsea loves when we have these as well as crackers. She also loves when we include Aqua Ball drinks in with the mix. We normally head over to the park in our neighborhood or even just our front yard to enjoy our picnics. Both of these items are easy to pack in my daughters travel bag and actually fit in my purse as well.
