I actually got my page for the May challenge at Blush-n-Dusty finished early for once. Usually I seem to get busy with other things and leave it till the last minute. This month the challenge was to do a page featuring a birthday (and hopefully have a cake in the picture as well). You also had to use something from Lara's newest mini kit, Vintage Birthday which she was featuring as a freebie on her blog for May.

I decided to do a page for my heritage album. I knew I had this picture of my Aunt Joyce and Uncle Peter scanned and Lara's kit seemed to go so well with it. It even has my uncle holding his sister's cake. So it fit perfectly with the challenge theme. I know my children love celebrating their birthdays and always look forward to having cake. It is such a joy just to watch them enjoying their special day. My oldest will be having his 20th birthday in a few days. He lives quite a ways from me now and I miss making him his favorite things for supper on his birthday. I hope he has a wonderful day.

Both girls have been enjoying school, as this is the time of year when a lot of fun activities are happening. Ayden was thrilled, as she got to go with her class to one of the local restaurants this week and make pizza. Raquel got to have a sleepover at school with her class. They camped out on the classroom floor and got to watch a movie, play games and hang out together. Raquel is counting down the days till the school year is over and looking forward to summer vacation. She decided to spend this weekend at her dad's, so it will be rather quiet here at our place. I think Ayden and I will have to make a trip to the farmer's market tomorrow to keep ourselves busy.

We've been enjoying some wonderful sunny days the past couple of weeks. The yard work is slowly getting done and the girls and I are looking forward to some visits to our local greenhouses soon. The past couple of days have been rainy and wet, but we really did need the moisture. This coming long weekend is supposed to be cool, so I put off buying flowers till next week. As it is a long weekend I'm sure we will find a few other things to do though. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend also!
