We have been sooooooooooo busy

WE have been soooooooo busy so I had some time to catch up today, so sorry for all the reading below.....

David's trip to Cali

David had to go Cali for business, and we went along with him. He can't drive soooooo. I was his driver.We had a great time. DAvid's sweet mom and dad kept the kids for the night so that I didnt have to come back at night from LA bymyself, and we got to spend some time together with it bein our 10th anniversary. We had a fun time, and his hotel was right by Disneyland. So the next day we went to the beach and then the next day back up to La to picked up, then a day at Sea World and then the sabbath day we were spent and rested all day... All in all we had a great trip. The closest thing we got to a vacation, yet it wasn't because david worked all week and I drove all week.

Adventures with Tink

So as I went up to take a nap after Magee's bday... Which by the way i NEVER nap, and Ethan came up to David's office screaming that tink was stuck. David comes down stairs and She Was stuck. When I woke up thank goodness he took pictures so that I could see the adventure. So hilarious!!!

Ethan's 5th bday

Ethan had a birthday party with his best buddy Landon. Landon is a day older than Ethan and we thought it would be fun for them to share a party. What a fun day it was. Ethan wanted a homemade elmo cake and that is what he got. thanks to all that came and shared the day with him. It was a blast!!!

A day at Sea worldSan Diego

I have always wanted to go to Sea World and take the kids. It was a stinkin hot, but fantastic day!!! Thanks Grammy and Grampy for coming with us.

The beaches of Cali...

Ourbeloved Oceanside California. We had a beautiful day in the ocean...

Dad's Day 2008

Happy Dad's Dad, David

Ethan was so helpful in the kitchen! he love to cook.

The boys watching the neverending story.

We had a great sunday. We went to church then cooked dinner, steaks chicken baked potatoe bar, bread, Desserts,etc. Out best pals, The Thompson's, Sean, Michelle, Max, and Alex came to eat, chat and watch E.T. with us. Afun time was had by all!

Girl's night out!!

A couple times a year , some of My girls from the east side get to gether for a girls weekend at the hotel. For Rachel and Leslie's Bdays, we went to Red Robin for Diner and then entertainment at Casino Arizona's Showstoppers. The Garth Brooks impersonator was the best, and Then a night at a swanky Hotel in Scottsdale. Julie is 7 months pregnant with her 3 baby, and I am still in slow motion, but did a good job keeping up with them. Thank heavens for David's handicap sticker, that makes life so much easiet.Rach found a fun modern hotel and we made breakfast in the morning in the fully loaded kitchen . Thanks for a fun night ladies!!!

Pretty to be Broken Dad

The kids (and I ) had fun trying to walk in his boot. What a joke! but it was fun watch the kids fall over, and David's leg is healing nicely.

Lunch With the Girls

Tink and I had the oppourtunity to have lunch with all the girls in David's family except Aunt Becky 1. We had lunch at a total GHETTo Peter piper pizza. Fun day. We got to meet our newest little Lacey for the first time. She is so cute.

Sunday Seven...

With David and I not able to really do much, we seem to have watched many movies lately...

1. P.S.I love you... so fun, but I have always feared my sweet hunk dying, so I cried

2. Indiana Jones and the crystal skull...Okay, not great

3. Princess Diaries 2... So cute, we all watched it today and all 5 of us enjoyed it!

4. Next... REally good, i like jessica biel and nicolas cage

5. The Astronaut Farmer...David and I really enjoyed it. Very inspiring.

6. Ironman... What a great cast, and Very exciting, we were entertained the whole time.

7.Enchanted...The kids had seen it before and When we watched it as a family, it was better than I thought!

We are a movie watching family, but are pros right now with our net flix subsciption, (we sure miss hiking and bike riding, but it is sort of good timing with the horrible heat! So you could say our broken bodies are a blessing, and a curse.
