The Weekly Catch-Up (2013, March 25-31)

First, don't laugh-it's an attempt, I won't even pretend that I have confidence that you will see this every week. What a week! It started with me being in Phoenix and Mom and James were there as well. We had dinner at the Bamboo Club and followed it up with a trip to the Talking Stick Casino where I played roulette with 25 cent chips. The 22 came up 7 times while I was sitting there and I ended up walking away up $140.00. The 29 (My grandma's number) came up twice too :)
The girls were with Rachel A who was able to teach Sydney how to swing by herself (finally!), she also had a picnic with the girls and they made a bunch of cookies. (Thanks, Rachel-I have been eating them all week)

On Tuesday I flew home and David flew to North State. Wednesday night we (the girls and I) took mom to LA Live and we went to The Farm of Beverly Hills for dinner. It was good, mom and I shared the steak and the Dill pickle fried chicken. After dinner we took mom home and went to pick up Amy from the airport. The girls loved Amy immediately (especially Ms Brooke). The next day I dropped off Amy at Disneyland while I went to work. Amy hung out with Miranda and did get on a number of good rides although the day was terribly crowded. After David landed I went back and we had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. Friday we took Amy to breakfast at The Black Cow Cafe and had cornflake crusted french toast before hightailing it to the airport.

On Saturday we decided to head out in hunt for our next family member. While we didn't find her at the Pasadena Humane Society we did end up finding her in Canoga Park. Between shelters we colored our Easter Eggs and the girls loved it! We saw three dogs at Canoga Park and both the girls agreed that "Betty" was the best and they thought we should take her home. Upon bringing her home David decided to name her Dixie (I'm really not sure how that happened).

We had a great Easter with two Easter Egg hunts, great dinner, and now, I end this week the same way I started it, on a Sunday night in a hotel in Phoenix.

Happy Easter

We started with an Easter Hunt, followed it with church, Starbucks, Easter Egg hunt at Grandma's and a great Easter meal. A great Easter in the books! 

He has risen! At church Sydney heard the story of the open tomb and the angels that were there guarding it. When translating the story she told us there were fairies at the opening. Love this girl :)

Happy Birthday, Sara!

Earlier today I joked by putting up the Jog-A-Thon post. This day isnt about World Water Day or Jog-A-Thons, it's about Wonder Watson, Sara.

I have a small handful of people that I would love to live in my zip code-Sara is one of them. We have always had a long distance friendship but I find myself often wishing she were close, in my zip code would be perfect.

I have known her through many job changes, the beginning of the blog, children, divorce, marriage and am so grateful for her ever present friendship. We can go long periods of time without talking but we pick up as if it were yesterday. One of my greatest friends-Happy Birthday, I love you!

Yay, It's The Jog-A-Thon Today :)

Thomas Cove-Open For Business :)

We had a fun weekend in the cove. Great weather and warm water! Our plants are coming back and we are still thrilled with our backyard.

Kids Space!

After a 2 year hiatus we returned to Kids Space. The girls had a blast and we ended up with a membership :)
