Our First Sleepover / Rhonda's bday :)

Kathrynn has been talking about when she'll be ready for a sleepover for awhile...... she wants to, but still has some reservations..... Ok, let's be honest, we both have some reservations about *me* more then her....
What if she wakes up, what if she has bad dreams, what if she's had a food reaction, what if she "locks" down even before it is sleep time..... Kathrynn's feelings of feeling safe and empowered can change so quickly, and it isn't necessarily because of the location or the people... Sometimes there are just those unpredictable factors.... Trying to balance the potential joy with the authenticity of our present is a difficult thing to balance.... to have awareness and not fear.... to be open to expansion and newness....

Anyway, when Rhonda told me that her husband would be out of town on the day of her 40th bday I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for Kathrynn to spend the night with Virginia, and I would be there too to spend the night celebrating with Rhonda!

So we packed up our bagS and head out into the wonderful country side of Greene County!
Lots of farm fun, dress up, and crab/champagne fun ensued!!!!!!

Out to the farm!

Enough farm stuff, lets get serious!!!
Crab cakes and crab meat with melted butter over a lovely salad, with a wonderful champagne. mmmmmm

Meanwhile, Kathrynn fell asleep while watching a movie. Awwww :)

The next day the fun continued!!! Kathrynn took many pictures of Popcorn, Virginia's dwarf hamster. :)

Climbing to the top of the cat tower is no small accomplishment!!!!

We had a GREAT time for our first sleepover, and had a great birthday celebration for Rhonda as well.


  1. Looks like fun. What a great way to make your daughter feel safe and have fun at the same time!

  2. I miss Indiana. :(

    The look on her face at the top of that tower. Wow.
