Harper is loving her tap class. Delaney and I watch her each week and it brings back such fond memories for me. Another reason I loved my mom, she put me in every class I wanted to take, regardless of our financial situation. I’m thankful we can do the same for Harper. She is such a special kid! I have a strong feeling she is gonna find one particular sport/art and that she loves and will amaze us all with her talent! Love watching this little girl grow
Harper had some special birthday requests: specific toys,a fish and a cool fish tank, to eat at Panera for lunch, to have a strawberry cake with pink icing (i went a bit overboard with the pink food coloring:) and to have dinner with her best friend for dinner. I just love her face in the last pics of when she opened her gift from Cousin BB, its just priceless, I’m thinking she really like that gift!
All her birthday wishes came true, thanks to all who helped make them happen.
That morning she brought “4” fruit kabobs as her bday treat along with lots of other Valentine treats. School was cancelled the Friday before, thus the Valentines party and her bday party were both celebrated on the same day-she didn’t mind:). She was excited to go to school on her bday, as it was a make up day for so many snow days and it was fun for us because Bo was off of work as it was Presidents day. Thus we spent the whole day doing birthday activities as a family.
The girls awoke to lots of hearts and fun little gifts to open on Valentines day, then Bo and the girls showered me with gifts and cards they had made me. Bo even made me some fancy desserts with harper!
I made the girls some heart pancakes for breakfast and then we worked on some crafts and hats to decorate the house with so when Dad came home from work he had a party with his little ‘love bugs.’ Later that night we ate at a pizza place and afterwards we got a sitter so I could celebrate my bday with some friends at a local Irish pub. Thanks to all my family and friends for all the wonderful gifts and cards. It was a great day!
Bo’s friends from Indiana visited us for one day. They are big horse lovers so we decided to take them to Fort Myers for a behind-the-scenes look at the rarely seen U.S. Army’s last horse unit, The Caisson Unit which is adjacent to Arlington cemetery. Its a stable of more than two dozen special horses that pull the caisson during funerals held at Arlington Cemetery. We were able to pet these beautiful horses that serve the Honor Guard in this humble duty.
