Party is open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday night.

Remember that blog parties work best when bloggers participate, so if you have a chance to visit a few of the other links, you might find a new friend or two!

Today is Natalie's last day of preschool. We're going out to dinner for a belated "graduation" celebration, but I'm not sure I'm ready for summer yet! The girls have been at each other's throats all week...and now 3 more months of it? No plans as of yet for Memorial Day. T always works, so the girls and I usually hang out.

What are you up to this weekend?


Hope to be back this weekend with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

Hooray for another fun party. Thank you!

This weekend our only plans are that we have a really nice dinner out with another couple. Love nights out w/o the kids. I don't think we have any plans at all for Monday which is so exciting to me. I love just being with my family w/o any stress of plans.

Good Morning, Amanda,

My boys are already annoying each other too...and annoying me in the process! We are heading to a state park this weekend for a little bit of family fun. I hope you have a great weekend Amanda!

Today is the first day of summer vacation here. I'm not sure what the plans for the weekend are. I have some sewing and crafting I want to do and there's always cleaning to be done. There's a traveling Vietnam wall in town so I'd like to go there. My husband lost some friends during this last deployment so my thoughts are with their families.

The top ten list is too funny!

Enjoy your dinner out tonight. At least the pool opens this weekend and you can spend many hours there occupying the girls.
