This Past Week -

We've had a good week. Last Saturday, I met J's parents half way between our houses and they took P for the day so that we could work on our family room. P tries to help a little too much so we were extremely grateful for them. We got a lot of work done and are making progress. Late in the afternoon, we drove up and had dinner with J's parents. We stayed the night and attended church with them. Here is a picture of P sitting with Grandpa Grumpy snacking on some cheerios or something.

We were watching The Day The Earth Stood Still, a remake of a movie from the 1950's. Lets just say ... it was interesting. We then watched the original movie and it made me laugh. The "special effects" were pretty good considering it was made in the 50's!


On Tuesday, I heard that my friend, Carli, and gone and visited our mutual friend, Kim the week prior. I was WAY jealous and decided to go and visit her too. So, on Wednesday, P and I packed up and drove to Logan for a day trip. It was really good to see her and meet her little boys. I hadn't met the youngest two so I was excited. Anyway, I took my camera but we were so busy talking and watching the boys play that I totally forgot to take pictures. I did manage to get a cute one of P and her son looking out the window.

They were watching someone across the street mow their lawn. Another mutual friend of ours, Jennifer, lives just around the corner from Kim and she came over too. It was so great to see such good friends. I wish we lived closer and could see each other more often. I had a great time and so did the kids.


On Saturday, we went and helped J's brother (and his family) move into their new house. Actually J helped, P played with cousins, and I just sat and watched. They wouldn't let me move or carry anything. The perks of pregnancy, I guess! ;-) Afterwards, we went to a restaurant and celebrated J's birthday which will be on Tuesday, May 5th. It was great to be able to see some of the family and spend time with them. I look forward to late June when J's sister, Heather, and her family come for a visit. We miss them and wished that Colorado was closer to us!


Today, Sunday, we celebrated Mother's Day with my family. We are going to Soda next Sunday so we decided to celebrate Mother's Day today, as well as, J's birthday. We had yummy dinner and cake. I love my family so much and feel so blessed to have wonderful grandparents who we are so close to and who love us.

I'm so jealous!! That must have been tons of fun to visit Kim and Jennifer. I wish I was closer that I could do that too. I hope they're doing well.

Wow! I didn't know they were that close! I guess I didn't even know Kim was in Logan. How good of you to keep up!
