Whenever we pass the strip Mackay and Jonah have always been fascinated with the Luxor. They have been begging us to take them to the "Pyramid" for awhile. Well they talked their Moema and Pops into taking them. They went and had a blast. They came in the door dressed in helmets and shields and you could not get a word in edge wise because they were so excited to tell us about their outing. They got to go through the museum and they said they saw king mummies. Then they went and had their picture taken on the magic carpet. They also made a DVD for mom and dad of them riding the magic carpet down the strip. The DVD was hilarious. They finished off their adventure with some ice cream. That is what grandparents do, take them out, spoil them, sugar them up and send them home.

So Hallie has this obsession with the dishwasher. Every time I open it she comes running and thinks that she needs to stand on the door and throw everything out of it. Anyway, yesterday I opened the dishwasher to load it and as usual here comes Hallie. There was some water on the floor and she slipped and fell hitting her eye on the corner of the dishwasher door. Of course this has to happen a week and a half before we do our family pictures.

nd Ryan Gifford. His favorite position to play was first base. He did really good. He was rewarded the game ball at one of his games for playing well. They did half of the season using the T to bat off of and then the other half their coach pitched to them. He had so much fun and cannot wait to play next season. Jonah can't wait until he is old enough to play. He wanted to play so bad this year he cried to stay at a few of the practices. I told him that he could be on mommy's team. So when they anyone would ask what team he was on he would tell them that he was on mommy's team.

Last night I had a girls night at my house. We rented P.S I Love You and made bows. I had Summer, Liz, Sole and little Bitsy over for the Festivities. We had so much fun learning from the expert "bowinater" miss Sole. I am so excited to doll up Hallie in all of her new bows.
The boys went out and had their father and sons camp out. They went out by Boulder City. They had a blast. They climbed all of the boulders and cooked hamburgers and had S'mores. They came home early for Mackay's last baseball game of the season.

Hallie always bangs the pots and pans while I cook dinner. The other night while I was cooking dinner it got really quiet. Silence at my house is usually not a good thing. Hallie was no where in the kitchen. I looked everywhere upstairs and downstairs, and so I thought. I was calling her name and nothing. My heart started racing. I finally heard a little laugh in my pantry. There she was laying on the shelf in my pantry. She had pushed the step stool over and climbed on in. She is an adventure girl.

Big girl walking in the grass.
Ryan and Jonah Climbing the slide.
Bubba digging in the dirt.
Hallie and her friend Ella.
Today we ventured out to Mountains Edge to see my good friend Katie and her 2 kids Ryan and Ella. Not exactly cross country but across the city. We went to the "cowboy park". The kids had fun climbing and playing together. It sure made them sleepy. We got back to Katie's house and Jonah just laid on the floor and went right to sleep. My kids all fell asleep on the way home. That is what a fun day at the park will do to you.

We started out the day good. I took the boys to Tae Kwon Do I got to see my friends Arleene Spath and Liz Smith. Hallie and I enjoyed chatting with them in the hall while the boys were in class. Hallie especially enjoyed Liz's cute little guy Jacob walking her around in her stroller. Then we went home and continued with the usual lunch and then my favorite part of the day, rest time.
Then the day went down hill. A few weeks ago at one of Mackay's t-ball games the person parked next to me totally bashed the side of my van with their car door. I called the person who did it and they denied it of course and said they did not open that door. I had not been anywhere else that week and they were the only ones who parked there next to me. So anyways today I had to go get quote on the damages. $326.01 Ooouuch!!!! I swear dishonest people suck! So I wasn't really robbed but it feels that way.
