Here's a few pics of my office from the big day, yesterday. They were pretty nice about it actually! I brought a few of the balloons home to share with LAD and he got into the party spirit too and wanted to make a cake. So we made a cake and he helped in every step, can you tell. We only dropped the spoon once. The cake actually turned out pretty good, too bad there's no pic of it, just the crumbs and ice cream juice! He even sang the Happy Birthday song too, well at least a couple lines of it. The B&W is me at 2 1/2+, same age as LAD now, thanks Ma.

Each player answers the questions themselves. At the end of the post the player then tags 4 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment letting them know that they've been tagged and ask them to read your blog. Then you let the person who tagged you know when you posted your answers.
Ten Years Ago:
We had been living in Ames since Sept/Oct or so of 1997, in a duplex. This time 10 years ago we were waiting to close on our house, the one we still live in today. We closed on July 15, 1998. Happy Birthday to me!!!
Five things on today's to-do list:
1. Get out of bed and get moving. Done!
2. Get LAD to daycare. Done!
3. Get to work. Done!
4. Work. Done!
5. Fix supper and get LAD to bed. Half Done. (7:36 pm) I'm currently typing this and LAD is sitting on lap watching Chudleighs. Thank goodness for 2 monitors hooked to one computer!
Snack I Enjoy:
Chocolate. Cracked Pepper Triscuits with or without cheese.
Things I would do if I was a millionaire:
Live in a house in the middle of a big acreage. Invest it. Travel.
Places I have lived:
Rural Denlow, MO

4 People I am tagging:
Anybody else reading this with a blog, consider yourself tagged!
- It gets 26 mpg back and forth to work, where the Concorde was getting 24-25. Wondering what it'll get on a long trip?
- The 6 CD changer, built in to the stereo, is VERY nice. Plus it has a bonus cassette player. I'm really surprised about this, being that it's a 2006 model. Now I can dust off all those 80's cassettes, which of course, I still have.
- You CAN lock all the doors from the driver door, as you're exiting the car, by holding out the INSIDE door latch, then pressing the lock button. It only took me a week to figure that one out. I was a little disappointed that I ALWAYS had to lock it with the remote, until I figured this one out-Duh.
- The moon roof is the coolest thing ever. I think this is one of my favorite "extras" that I wouldn't have specifically "needed" in a vehicle.
- It's very annoying that the 12v plugs do not have power when the key is off. Come-On! What were they thinking! And according to the book, you can't change it with a fuse, etc.
- It has a picnic table-who knew we needed this! And below it, there is a huge storage area (spare tire shaped and sized, but apparently not quite big enough, since spare hangs on outside)
- Driver's side window has automatic Down and UP. When did we become so lazy we couldn't hold the button for 5 seconds to open it and now CLOSE it. However, I have to admit, it is handy, esp with manual transmission.
- When you start noticing, these CR-Vs are everywhere.
- The back passenger door windows go ALL the way down, not just half way.
- The steering wheel has radio controls on it. This is NICE!
- Not really missing the Concorde all that much!
- When you put the CRV in gear, it goes, every time!

We went to Reiman Gardens to watch the Ames fireworks on Friday night. LAD was on the go, constantly running. We saw the model train for a few minutes, then they closed it down for the evening. Then we explored a little more, then had a picnic! Then the boys played football until dark. The weather was perfect and we even put on our jackets by 10:00. Can you believe that for July! LAD enjoyed the fireworks for about 10 minutes, then we was ready to go home. They lasted 25 minutes, which was surprising. They were fairly far off, so the noise wasn't too loud. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
