August Household Birthdays in LA

Since I’m not usually visiting my household in Louisiana in August, this journey I caught 2 household birthdays whereas I used to be there. Lauren and Alex each had birthdays whereas I used to be there they usually at all times exit for dinner and cake at dwelling for his or her birthday celebrations, in order that was enjoyable. Lauren’s in-laws joined us for each of the dinners and it’s at all times good to see that aspect of her household too. She married right into a very nice household! These women have a lot love from each side.

You all like it once I share household occasions, so I assumed I’d share pics of the birthdays and some different issues we did whereas I used to be there. The day I acquired there was Alex’s third birthday (August 23), so we met up at a Japanese hibachi type restaurant for dinner. It was superb and all of us loved the night. Alex was entrance and middle.

She loves edamame and ate that whereas we have been all ready for dinner to be finished.

Cute little 3 yr outdated princess. She loves Elsa, so I purchased her an Elsa doll from Frozen that sings “Let It Go” and she or he liked it. I’ve a sense they are going to be very bored with that tune quickly. It’s Alex’s favourite tune to sing. Lauren performs it for her within the automobile.

We had birthday cake for Alex’s celebration.

She’s such a cutie with a giant persona. Blonde and brown eyed, she’s so completely different from her sisters.

She’s speaking nonstop now and is so enjoyable and cuddly.

They came visiting on the weekend (they stay 45 minutes away from Renee & Bruce) and Bruce grilled hen and Renee made some sides for us all and we had a good time collectively. There was a nasty thunderstorm that blew by whereas we have been all nonetheless within the pool and we went scrambling to get inside. The fellows acquired every little thing taken down, together with umbrellas and it was a nasty storm for a brief couple of minutes. The fellows acquired knocked down attempting to place up the umbrellas they usually misplaced a few them as a result of they acquired broken. It got here up quick and livid.

It was enjoyable whereas it lasted although. These women are getting so huge. Parker is 9, Iris 7 and Alex 3.

Parker and Iris had simply taken the paddle board out and needed to come proper again in. It was a scary couple of minutes however all of us have been secure, thank goodness. Bruce was capable of grill hen after it stopped raining.

Iris acquired her gymnastics bars out to play on, with just a little assist from Alex. Iris loves gymnastics a lot. Parker could be very into horses and takes driving classes.

On my final day there, August thirty first, we celebrated Lauren’s birthday at a Mexican restaurant and that was enjoyable too.

At dwelling, she had a Chantilly cake for her birthday and it was scrumptious. In fact, we sang Glad Birthday and the ladies helped blow out her candles. I’m so glad I acquired to be there to have fun their birthdays in particular person this yr. I like my household!

On one other word, Renee is redoing their bed room with some new furnishings and she or he’s going to have her present darkish wooden items painted, a dresser and chest of drawers. She discovered an area place there that paints classic furnishings and it’s in now getting painted. I did a fast temper board for her exhibiting the brand new mattress, nightstands and the rug she already has that can go down quickly.

Whereas I used to be there, we acquired the characteristic wall wallpapered. She had ordered the paper and had it there so we might work on this challenge once I got here down.

Their room will probably be very impartial which she loves. It’s going to be so elegant and fairly!  As quickly as she will get all of it completed, I’ll put up these photos too. She’s been searching for bedding and placing all these items collectively for a layered look in neutrals.

One ultimate factor that she simply acquired accomplished is a set of those heron work for the stairwall. We had seen these at an area store and when she went again to have a look at them once more to purchase, one in every of them was gone. We went dwelling and appeared on-line and located them for a greater worth so she ordered them and simply acquired them hung. They’re excellent on this spot!
