Vacation Week(end)






Last Wednesday, Charlie left with the guys and went to Moab for 4 days. I brought in the 6,7, and 20 month old to stay over. They were picked up Thursday (with the 7 year old throwing up) and then the 7, 9 and 11 year old from our other daughter came over for 2 days. The 7 yr old and 13 yr old were in a National Dance Competition that weekend. We had hot tub time, making cookies time, computer time, t.v. time, pulling weeds time, playing on scooters time, swing time, reading books time, chillin' time, throwing up time,...it's all good times! Luckily, the "throwing up 7 yr. old is feeling better"....however, grandma has a sore throat :(

May "Gentle" Breeze



We had "gentle" breezes starting at 12:58 a.m. this morning. When we woke up (after finally getting to sleep again)...this is what greeted us. We left a message for our good neighbors thanking them for opening their yard up to us and Chuck repositioned our quad trailer back on blocks (it had also moved). Our tulips demonstrate what direction the wind was going. They are very confused this season and probably won't come up next year because of fear!

Seeing the Mouse...in 2009!

Soooooo excited! Our new resort in Anaheim just opened for 2009 reservations. I stayed on the phone patiently waiting for 38 minutes in order to get a reservation...some things you just have to do!! Finally, I heard a human voice and the 2 rooms are ours. I figure I will probably never get back in after reservations go online. Disneyland is a very popular area and Dolphins Cove is impossible to get into, so this place will be just as hard. It will be worth it when we get there though. The "Happiest Place on Earth" is getting a little bit closer! Here we come!!
