I know I have a ton to catch up on but had to go ahead and post these! We had Elic's 9 month pictures taken over the weekend and our photographer posted a sneak peak! I am SO in love, probably my favorites so far from Elic's baby plan...can't wait to see them all! Thank you Beth Lessard!

The day after we got home from the beach it was my 30th birthday! Connor had quite a day planned for me :) He got up with the kiddos, got my favorite coffee from Dunkin Doughnuts and then told me to do whatever I wanted kidless :) He said just be home by 2:30pm. So I went to the mall ALONE and actually did a little shopping for myself! I got home on time, he had the kids ready and the car packed for a surprise outing. He took us all to one of my favorite places...Arrington Vineyards! It was
B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L outside. I mean it almost felt like an early Fall afternoon in the middle of August. As we were sitting there outside at a picnic table I turned around and SURPRISE...3 family friends of ours showed up with their kiddos to celebrate my birthday! I was so surprised and we had the BEST time. Thank you to my dear hubby for making my day wonderful :)
Me and the kids at Arrington Vineyards...
Pictures are a little out of order...since Arrington Vineyards closed at 6pm (it was Sunday) we were all having so much fun that we didn't want the evening to end! So we took all of the kids to a local park to play and have birthday cake :) Here are all of the girls playing on the see saw...
This was hilarious...while at the park the kids ran to me to give me a birthday hug and literally all of them tackled me to the ground and showered me with love!
Not sure what I was laughing at but I truly was happy :)
Me and my wonderful hubby on my birthday :)

Mama can fish too :)
Having some hubby/wife time :)
My uncles did the cutest thing...they made a treasure map for Ellison and buried a treasure box for her...
She was SO into it!
Looking at the map trying to figure out where to start shoveling
GUE is helping her...
I see it!
Look at the treasures!
She was SO proud of herself...
