April Birthdays bring May...um.. I don't know

April in our family is a busy birthday month, with 4 of us having birthdays! Mine (Caren) is first on the 7th. It was a great day, even though I'm in shock at how old I am! I just like to think of myself as 28. I plan on being 28 for the rest of my life! The day started with going out to coffee and then an art show (that I had tried to enter but didn't finish the painting in time) with a friend, who didn't even know it was my birthday! Then Matthew took me out to lunch at Ocean View, then we went on a wonderful hike up Perseverance trail! Here's a picture at "the rock".
Next comes Matthew and Ashlen's birthdays on the 10th. We had a little celebration at my parents house after church. Meadow played Happy Birthday on the harmonica. Then we had another party at our house that evening after community group. Ashlen is 2! Can you tell? :)



And finally Logan had his 5th birthday on the 20th! He had 2 friends over for a space party after school. One of the games we played was "shoot the asteroid" with his suction cup Nerf gun. We also played "pin the astronaut on the Space Station", but mostly the boys just wanted to play with Logan's new Lego's.
Here's Logan and his best buddy Kegan and his Space shuttle cake with planets around it.

Happy Birthday to all! I love your space cake! You are such a great mom! What a nice day for a hike (on your birthday). Was it just you and Matthew or did the kids go too?
