Fun Happenings

Here are some of the fun things we have been up to lately...

Ty's hat--Ty has been saving his pennies (that he earns for being obedient, kind, sharing, etc) for a long, long time. He didn't want to spend them on something silly like a toy or a treat. No, this boy knew exactly what he wanted. He wanted to be like his dad and buy a hat. So, while it took him months to save up all the pennies, he finally bought his hat with dad. Both Scott and Ty were happy little boys!

Visit from Mimi--Scott's mom came to visit and the boys had a blast. We went to the Mountain View Art and Wine Festival that was in downtown Mountain View, just blocks from where we live. While we didn't drink any wine or look at any art, we did spend hours at the bouncy houses and slides. Ty and Cam were literally dripped sweat as they climbed out and they both exclaimed "That was FUN!!" We ate ice cream and kettle corn and it most definitely spoiled our dinner, but that's okay! It was such a treat to have Mimi come!

Weather turned cold--This is definitely a "fun happening". I have been waiting for fall and winter since, well, since last fall and winter! We celebrated by pulling out the rain boots...and the boys have not taken them off since!

Camping at Ice House Reservoir--We went camping with my grandma and grandpa and lots of my aunts and uncles. It was so fun for the boys to get to know more of the Wright family and see their great grandparents. They had so much fun and they both cried when we had to pack up our tent to go home. I wish we had more pictures...but alas, we don't.

The boys played by the lake, threw hundreds of rocks into the water, were showered with love and candy from my aunts and uncles, got to go fishing, and just plain got dirty! They loved it. Cam even had a battlewound to prove that you should not take climbing rocks lightly :)
Scott and I loved riding on the boat, riding the seadoos, and even jumping off of a 30 ft cliff. (Ok, so really, I climbed to the top and chickened out. Scott jumped. He is so brave.)

More fun things to come later!

Yet again...

I have lost my phone.

Actually this time it was stolen. I found the case out in the gutter right next to our house. I had the phone one minute. Then next minute it was gone (must have fallen out of the stroller).
I went back to see where I had 20 steps from our front door and found the case there. I tried calling the phone and it is off.

I am so angry.
I am so frustrated.
Yes, this is the new phone that Scott got me about three weeks ago because I jumped into the swimming pool with the phone in my pocket.
Oh I am so mad right now.

I probably shouldn't post when I am this upset, but maybe I can leave all my anger here on the blog and I won't let it ruin the rest of my day.

Oh yes, and happy birthday Cam. I love you. I really do. I know I have been crying for the last 30 minutes, but it isn't your fault. And you still get presents tonight.
