Library's 80th Birthday

The Berkley Library is turning 80 this year! And one of the things that the Friends of the Library wanted to do was celebrate this big time. (I am also involved with this group).
So we planned a party for the kids & one for the adults.
The kids party was last Tuesday and we had a wizard come out to perform some magic for us.
This guy was great, the kids were laughing the whole time, the adults were laughing too.
Brendan even got to help for a couple of tricks too. (No I did not tell him ahead of time that I had kids at this event) (Also I had Brendan wearing my girlfriends campgain tee-shirt, extra plug there too.)

Here are the photos of Brendan:

After the magic show all the kids got to put sprinkles on cupcakes, juice boxes & goodie bags. After the mess made by the cupcakes I don't think that the library is going to let us have opened food again for the kids!

Fishing with Dad

The boys had a 'boys day out' a week or so ago and went fishing. Madelyn was really upset that she could not go fish with the boys. So here are some photos of the boys on their secret fishing hole. Brendan does a great job listening & following directions with helping paddle the boat. Catching some fish.

Catching a whole lot of fish. They kept only 13 to bring home & cook!
Well with all this fresh fish we have to fry it up for dinner.

Also I have been have some really weird cravings now that food is starting to sound good to me again with this pregnancy. I want things like Chick-fil-a's breakfast chicken biscuit, fried okra, peach muffins (both of these last two from my days working at Folks!) and some other strange Southern food. So I bought some fresh okra and looked up the best way to fry it. (I think next time I will see if they sell the already breaded frozen kind)
But it was so good. Brian and I almost ate the whole plate full & I had made two batches!
And of course we all ate some fish, Madelyn ate so much fish that she didn't want her hotdog that we had planned on them having (both the kids don't eat steak yet). That was all that was left from freezing half and cook the other half (that still works out to 13 pieces of fish!)
