It has really starting hitting me that Kinsley will be in Kindergarten in the fall and I will lose my buddy with me every day!  I wanted to try and do more fun things just her and I!

Corbin’s actual birthday!! Also, as a side note, when i was a kid, we were not allowed to open presents until the evening.  Connor said it was like that for him too.  It was always torture for me to have to wait so we have decided that our kids get to open their presents first thing in the morning.  It works well for us and it will be interesting to see what they choose to do with their kids!
