April 3rd was Tony's bday and April 6th was Quinn's. We do a family party/dinner for them combined and then do a smaller friend party for Quinn.
I have to confess I totally dropped the ball on Tony for his bday. I woke up and immediately wished him a happy birthday. But I didn't have a present or a card. He said was expecting one when I arrived home from work...but nope....nothing, nada. I had been sick leading up to his bday, we had the family dinner the night before and it honestly just slipped my mind. Man! I should be in the dog house for that one for sure! He's forgiven me...when our federal tax return came in we went and bought him a new phone. So I think he is happy now.
Quinn's friend party was a lot of fun. There were 6 of them in total, 2 girls and 4 boys. I guess I'm not the typical parent because I love to sit and talk to Quinn and his friends. And they seem to be okay having me around. But I really did try not to hover that night.
A couple Friday's ago, Quinn, Ben and I went to see Olympus Has Fallen. I know I am emotional, but I had tears in my eyes that entire movie. I think it was just the drama of it and seeing our capital taken over by terrorists. It literally hurt my heart to watch it and think about the possibility of that happening in real life.
The Southmoore Jazz bands performed in a concert last week. Quinn was in two numbers and they will also perform one of those for a competition next week.
Ashton, Tony and I went on a date night with Jeana and Ric. (Ashton came because Quinn was a friend's and we didn't want her at home alone...not to mention, we actually like her and don't mind her hangin' with us.) We tried a new restaurant in Moore and I must say that we were NOT impressed. I hope it was because they are so new, but I'm not sure I'll be going back to give them another shot.
It's almost time for Ashton's dance recital, so group and individual pictures were taken last week. Ashton loves putting on all the heavy make up for pics. But man, it hurts to see her look so grown up.
I think that catches you up on the happenings in our family. We have a good weekend planned and I hope you do too.
