Maura went to Clare's American Girl Doll birthday party. It was s super cute party...they ordered a 'starter' and 'main course' off the menu. Then had cake and ice cream for dessert.
That night we went to Sophia's birthday party. It was a slumber party at her Uncle Joe's in St. Albans. We got lost driving there in mist, rain and fog. After talking with neighbors and driving around for awhile, we finally found it.
It was a sweet group of girls. We had Italian for dinner, cake and the girls played with their dolls and watched a movie. They finally settled to bed around midnight. I stayed the night too because Maura's bg's have been all over the place and it was a long way out.
The CPOP crew back together for another birthday :) This is the fifth year this group has been here for Ben's birthday. They are a much calmer group now that they are older. It was crazy listening to to their man laughs coming from the basement. Such a nice group of boys!

So in one week, I busted off the side mirror on the van driving out of the garage...
Duct tape, classy!
I noticed a missing grate on the front of the van...
and I had a flat tire.
The week before, the engine lights went on. I brought it in and they said it was some transmission thing. They were able to do some cleaning process and hopefully it will run for a couple more years without having to have the transmission replaced.
And I still have the screwed on/taped up bumper from last year's Spring break trip, lol!
Thankfully, Charlie was able to replace the mirror and grate the next week, so the van doesn't look too g'd up anymore.
