Bumble bees, Ballerinas, and Babies

We are officially done with school and into the summer now. Asher finished school with the production of "The Ladybug Ball" in which he starred as the bumblebee. He was the hero who saved the ladybug from the spider. He stole the show with his arm flexing and stellar dance moves. Unfortunately I have been unable to download the videos so you will just have to trust my unbiased opinion :).

We now have been spending lots of time with friends at sprinkler parks and playgrounds. Josie passes the time away with her buddies in the shade, smiling and gurgling at each other. It is quite adorable.

Josie truly is the best baby in the world-super laid back and smiley! She is pure joy.

Anna finished her year off with the long awaited ballet recital. We loved her 2 minutes on stage but sitting through a 3 hour ballet recital with 4 kids was pure torture! She was beautiful and made it worth it. She loves being in the spotlight.

Anna asked for a flower she could plant and water instead of the traditional vase bouquet. A girl after my own heart!

Now we are packing up for our 3 week trip. We are driving to Wiscousin to spend time with family including Caleb and Amanda visiting from Australia (yeay-it has been 2 years since we last saw them!). Then I fly out of WI to HAWAII for 10 days with Josie! Joel will be joining me for the 4th of July weekend. We are beside ourselves with excitement to see friends, relax in one of our favorite places, go sailing, and celebrate 10 years together! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Thorson for keeping the troops! So if you don't see me here for a few weeks, know that some great pictures and stories will be here soon!
