It's Been a Fun Week

I've been in California a little over a week. It has been great spending time with friends and family. The past few days I have been enjoying my time with my kids and grandkids. They have had fun playing with the Lincoln Logs, going out for ice cream, and playing at the baseball field. It's been so cute to hear all the fun things they say. I had to laugh when little Drew fed Barron, their Black Lab. He put the dog dish down and said, "Bon Appetit, Bare". I was sitting here just chuckling.

it would all be so much better if the little one would come--I'm only here for a couple of more weeks and I want to have more time to play with her. I went to the doctor with Daph--no change, but we're hoping.

Daph is such a trooper--today we went out to go mini-golfing and riding the go-carts in the heat of the day. (No, she didn't ride the go-carts.

I think Drew was very happy that his big brother, Jason, came home for the weekend so he could ride the go-carts with him.

Hannah rode with her dad

Brandon rode alone--poor guy, I think he had the slowest go-cart. (Drew was very happy when he and J overtook B's car.)

I do have to admit, I wonder what this little guy will do when he is no longer the baby ; (

It was so fun to see that some 30 years ago, he was playing

And now, he's out there coaching a ten-year-old All Star team. The other night we went to watch a practice game. I loved listening to one of the moms talk to Daph about how they are trying to figure out how to get their son on Stephen's team. He really is a great coach. The kids love him.

I hope to have some pictures of the little baby in the VERY near future. We were really hoping she'd be born today--it would have been my MIL's 92nd birthday. The blanket just needs to have the ends finished off and I have to do the trim.

Sidenote: Allan had a great time in Utah with the other kids. Heidi will be flying here on Wednesday, so I'll get to spend a few days with her, too. Can't wait. (Hopefully, we'll get a chance to go see New Moon--I still haven't seen it. (Oops, when I published this I said "New Moon"--meant "Eclipse".

HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GREAT 4TH OF JULY--I'm so excited to be in the U.S. for the 4th.

You gotta see New Moon cause you just have to see Eclipse! It rocks.

So glad you are having fun and getting to spend time with your family.

I sure hope your little granddaughter gets here soon. She will love meeting you.

Great family pictures, and a wonderful job on the baby blanket!

Eclipse is sooo good! Lar Face and I went the first night (big surprise, huh?) but CC Face was out of town, so we'll just have to go see it again now that she's back home! :D

Amber said...

Wow, what an amazing time you're having with your family!

Poor Daphne. The woman is my inspiration because she's at least smiling. :)

Zach Face said...

Let me tell you something: mini golf, go-karts, and baseball are legit. They are legit beyond compare, so I respect you for talking about all three. :)
