What a week!

This week, my dad, four brothers, one sister-in-law, and one Reeves went backpacking in Yosemite. I was kind of jealous that I couldn't go... so Jon and Mom and I had a super-busy, super-fun week...

Monday, we got our new fridge. It's awesome! Already I love having the fridge on top and freezer on bottom. It's so bright white that everything else in the kitchen looks offwhitish dull now:

Tuesday, I babysat during a funeral... I had a great time with the kids. Sarah and Edwin came over and we played baseball and kickball in the backyard. Sarah and I were on a team against all five of the kids... and we won :) unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of all our glory :)

Wednesday, mom and I took the kids out to Merced to visit Becca (Paul was backpacking with the Yosemite group). We swam and laughed and looked at yearbooks and made dinner and had a wonderful relaxing day.

Thursday, Dawna, Lawrence, and I met Ginger and Izzy out at Ardenwood and had en enjoyable day petting horses, sheep, chickens, etc. Then we enjoyed the Dawna and Izzy show on the dance floor, then we rode the horse-drawn train. We finished out the day getting soaked at the water pump. The girls had a blast together (old and young).

Friday, mom's platinum birthday... as in 08/08/08!!! Even she just took it easy and enjoyed the day...she sat and just watched a movie in my room! For those of you that know my mom, you know how amazing that is...

In the afternoon, we went out to Barb's house to enjoy her spa, massage chair, and grilled kabobs. I made a chocolate Zucchini cake and we bought a raspberry ice cream pie. I was proud that the kids liked my cake better than the ice cream cake. Jon joined us for dessert after work and then we watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics!

Jon and I went strait to Antioch, arriving about 10pm, then staying up way too late chatting and enjoying the family up there. on Saturday, Jon went running with Dan, and then I made all the boys come play sports at the church so I wasn't left alone while they all played Warcraft... we played volleyball, basketball knockout, dodge ball, and then ended the day with a rousing game of four square (yeah, we were a little tired by that time). Then we enjoyed home made pizza and carrot cake for Lynn's birthday. Again, we left way too late and arrived home in Fremont way too late. Sunday was sort of difficult with a tired Dawna all through church, but we made it! We even had the Dents over for dinner and made home made pizza again! Mama K's recipe for pizza dough is the best ever!

It was a fun week... although part of me hopes to have a quieter week this week so I can, you know, do laundry or something :)

And, just because my babies are so cute, here's Lawrence:
Don't you think he should be a model for The Children's Place?? What a cutie!

That is a fun week!! Holy cow you packed a lot in. I'm really impressed. Have fun catching up on the boring stuff this week (like you're laundry).

That pic of Larry at the bottom is so so cute btw! I love his smiley face. The one of you and Dawna together is darling too :)
