I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day! My boys had a blast at the Pickens County Rodeo - wasn't my first rodeo, but, well... you know! They were a little distracted by the kids' mechanical bull ride, rock climbing wall, and tractors...but they saw a good portion of the "show". Definitely a fun outing, and I'm glad we made it out Saturday night, since Sunday was such a dreary day!

Did you get any nice or unusual gifts? Leave it to the kids...Drew got very creative. He found a bunch of loose change and wrapped it up in scotch tape to create a coin ring and necklace! Talk about bling....it was definitely creative, though I told him I probably wouldn't leave the house with money around my neck. Jack gave me some of his toys. He seemed to think I needed a (plastic) fish for my bathtub. It's the thought.... :)

Anyway, it was nice meeting many of you at the Mom's Nite Out Event at Town Center at Cobb last week, at the Atlanta Baby and Child Expo on Saturday, and at the What to Expect When You're Expecting Screening on Monday. We've been busy!

And if you like what you see here, please refer your friends (Hint: If you like prizes like the ones below, you get bonus chances to win for telling others about SVM Macaroni Kid!).

Next week's issue will be the first "Summer Break" edition. I can't believe kids are already getting out of school! Now we just need the pool to warm up, because I'm not getting in until it hits 85 degrees, or I buy a wetsuit. Note there are articles below the event picks as well, including one on SUNSCREEN TIPS.

Moving on, congrats to last week's contest winners - if you haven't contacted me yet and you've won a prize, please get in touch (check your email)!  Evene Day Spa: Rebekah K; Jersey Boys: Valerie F; St. Angelo's: Yolanda A; Pike Nurseries: Lynn P; Team Beachbody: Gretchen V

Have a great weekend!
