Happy 7th Birthday, Sebastian!

 We had a great time celebrating our boy. He enjoyed helping me decorate some of the giant batch of cupcakes I made.

We had an outdoor playdate with some friends, a special dinner that Sebastian picked, and he went on a dessert date with Pawpaw. Then we shared cupcakes Friday evening with friends who celebrated a birthday the same day. He is hoping he can have a party this year, probably in the summer!

Spring Break

 We didn't make any travel plans this time, but found lots of other fun ways to fill our week!

Sweet sister reading time

Dinner with friends Sunday night. It was so funny because I was cooking and out of the corner of my eye thought that was Sebastian helping with Anastasia!

Allia went on her first parent-free road trip to the beach for a day! (and I took the others to the neighborhood pool for a bit which was icy.)

We went with neighbor friends to U Paint It

My artista was the last of the group to finish hers!
Another family over for dinner that night.

An ice cream outing for St. Joseph's Feast day (and more friends over for dinner)

We finished off with a trip to Lito and Lita's with cousins and then home for confirmation prep, youth group and our regular family schedule again. It was such a refreshing break!

Friday our 3 Jiu Jitsu students received their first stripes on their belts (it takes 4 stripes before you are eligible to move up to the next belt color), and Stephen received two. They are really enjoying it and love practicing at home, so we got some mats that turn our living room into a grappling ring!
