2nd week of summer

We met a new cousin this past week and got to play at grandma's house. The girls rode their bikes a bunch. We went to the gym a couple times. Played on the swingset. Picked blueberries in the backyard. We are still trying to get Lulu to do #2 on the potty--had some messes on the floor that were oh-so-fun to clean up. Mimi went to her first activity day for church and loved it. We can't seem to sleep until it is dark outside. Have tried a few p90x workouts. The girls went to see Toy Story 3. Thought kids under 3 were free--not at Fairchild. They are free at Disneyland. A movie theater is not Disneyland. Mr. decided he wants to be an ATV racer. He didn't win his race. He says he will stop when he beats someone.

The Joker

I made banana muffins with chocolate chips for breakfast and I figured while I was at it, I would make some Father's Day brownies. Of course these couldn't be just any brownies. I did the old black bean brownies. Mr. figured that I had stuffed them with spinach and Mimi thought they were good, but a little bit chewy. I let Mr. in on the secret while Mimi asked for seconds. I think I have a high tolerance for new foods and flavors, but these were rotten to me. I don't know how Mimi can eat them, but we told her she could have the whole pan and her eyes lit up. Scratch that recipe off the list.

1st week of summer

Lots of bike riding. Crying. Naps. Hearing, "I'm bored." We made it to the park today. We will all get through this and we might actually get some work done around here. I had to let Mimi in on a little secret. The reason we have a summer break is so the kids can help out on the farm. Since we don't have a farm, that means she gets to help out in the garden and around the house. We will try to have some fun too. We went on a river cruise last Saturday. It was a blast. We can't wait to try out the 3-4 man tube. Anybody want to wake board on Saturday mornings, give us a call.
*** I have loved not setting my alarm clock.

Special Day

June 5, 2010
This was my baptism dress. She looked so cute.
We had such a nice day. The grandmas spoke and the K and Mimi sang, "I'll Seek the Lord Early." Grandpas prayed and conducted. I didn't break down. Just a few sniffles during the opening song.
We had a great turn out. Thanks for coming. The room was totally packed.
Mimi had a good 2-day birthday. We love you.
