Hello.

Apparently, I took all of May off from blogging. Well, moving on...

Did you know?

I spent MOST of May 2009 in Boise. Yes, my Dad was scary-sick and I am so glad that the kids and I got to spend some time with him and lots of family that I missed very much. He is probably on dialysis as we speak (er... read), but I'm told that he is still improving in little ways. There is a kidney out there somewhere with his name on it. I'm so grateful that we were able to spend time with him. Here are some pictures from our visit:

Blake (far right) performed in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!... I wish I had seven brothers.



Did you know?
Grant turned THREE!!! Weird. When we got back, Spencer took him fishing and he actually caught fish. On a fly rod. How? I don't know, I wasn't there. But Spencer and Grant have been strutting around here pretty proud of themselves.


Did you know?
We went on tour around the family and celebrated Grant and my birthdays in lots of different ways. Nice people made a lot of yummy desserts in my behalf in which I ate about half!! The boys had a nice time with all their cousins, plus a visit to the Boise Zoo with Kenj and kiddos! This is important: On my birthday, I played monopoly with Blake, Mason, and Lorie (and won). Wait until you see all the cupcake inspiration my mom gave me. It was a very memorable birthweek! Thank you!

My birthday-sharing cousins and I got aprons designed by Sassy! yeay!

p.s. Thank you to the people who helped me on the plane ride to and fro. Especially the army gentleman that rocked Henry to sleep while his mother was sucking her thumb, in fetal position, leaning against the airplane window.

Happy really late birthday! I'm glad you were able to spend some time with your family. Your boys are growing up so fast. Those cupcakes are awesome for Grant, I can't believe he is 3 and I also can't believe he caught a fish! Wow. Great post!!
