Long Weekend......

What a nice, relaxing and fun weekend. Rob and I started off Friday night going out to dinner and a movie with a friend from work and her hubby. We had some rockin chinese food at the China House and then went and saw Perfect Stranger with Halle Berry and Bruce Willis. I have to say it was better than I thought it would be. I liked all the computer aspects to it.

Saturday we were up bright and early to head to the 2nd track meet. We drove over to Woodland for the track meet. It was hot and lots of waiting time. Wolfie did great in the relay hurdle and relay running race. Justin did great also and really did a wonderful job taking it all the way around the track!

After the meet we went and gave Chase (My Godson) his birthday gift and had lunch and a Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Cake. It was nice to just cool down and have some time to visit and chat with them. There is always lots of laughter and silly stuff going on around there!!! Good times my friends.....Hope you had a ROCKIN birthday Chase-E-Boy !

We then went home and Lexi got ready for a sleepover and Wolfie went to a slumber birthday party. Rob and I were going to head to a 40th birthday party but we were THRASHED!!! I just could not get motivated to get all dressed up and head out. Plus I'm getting a cold/allergy thing and not feeling great. We went to the Fathers House for Sat night church, got Taco Bell and then came home and watched Walk The Line....I LOVE that movie!!!!

Sunday was pure sloth like behavior! I did get several closets, drawers and baskets cleaned out and managed to fill an entire gray garbage can of stuff from around the house. This is also mixed in with 2 naps I took and about 8 loads of laundry! So all in all a nice day.......My cold/allergy is kicking in but I will rally....cause a moms life must go on!!!

It was a long, busy but tiring weekend......Here's Wolfie after coming home from a slumber birthday party. He sleep for a good 6 hours.....nothing like cuddling up in moms bed and just crashing!!

Lexi got home from a slumber party also and her allergies were bugging her bad. I gave her some allergy med and she curled up on the couch and took a good 2 hour nap!!

Like mom like daughter....still relaxing and watching an episode of SpongeBob on moms laptop. About 30 minutes later there was a little faux-pas and the laptop was dropped for the first time. I'm happy to report that no children were harmed and the computer is working fine. Good thing! :-)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Why this boy makes us laugh........

1st Teack Meet of the Season

Wolfie had his first track meet yesterday after school. This is him above on the right doing the hurdles. He did great and I'm not sure but may have won this one....not sure as it's a little bit confusing as times and what's going on....but he did a great job and I don't think he even touched one hurdle jumping over them.

Here's Wolfie doing the jumping bar thing. Totally spaced out on the name right now. He cleared 4'4 and made his own personal best yesterday. He did a great job and watching him do this was really amazing.....
I think this is my favorite photo from yesterday. Blows me away that the kids were able to get themselves up and over......

Here's my boi doing the long jump. How cute is this?

Here's Justin (aka J-Dawg, BoBo or BOI) take it in for the mile relay. GREAT job BoBo!!!!

Shhhhhh Don't tell Daddy........

Lexi's SUPER hungry the second her eyes open in the morning......She has her bowl of cereal on moms side of the bed each morning....while watching Arthur....thanks to no cable the morning TV shows are not that great..........I wish I could have breakfast in bed every morning!!!

Choosing a College

My niece got into several different colleges. She's been trying to narrow it down and last weekend went to the last one to check out. Humboldt State University which is in very very Northern California. She really liked it and I have not yet heard her final choice of where she wants to go yet. They said the campus was very nice and lush with green and trees all around. It would be nice if she went there because there's lots of great camping destinations that my family loves up in that area so there would be lots of visiting and camping ahead in the next 4 years for us!!!!

Lexi got to go and check out the college with them and had tons of fun
. It's always an adventure with her Aunt and Uncle and cousins. They dote on her and she loves the attention. She also got a chance to bring her FLAT STANLEY project with her so be sure to check out Aunt Wendy's blog and see where he goes on his travels. Looks like he just got back from Mexico.....wish I would of!!!!

Also on a side note....if you want Flat Stanley to come and visit you there is a FS download on the blog where you can just print him and then cut him out......then just take him on your travels and e-mail the pics to:

Napa Style.....

My girl Tam has not been away from her baby girl for an overnight since Feb 06. When little sweet BK was born. So we went to Napa for a girls night away. We got our toes done, shopped, ate, laughed, ate more some, shopped and laugh till we cried. A good night away and much needed!!!!

You can check it all out at by clicking on this Flickr link......

We stayed at this really cozy hotel in Napa called the River Terrace Inn. It's really clean, bathrooms are HEAVEN, and the king size beds are really like a triple king size. The best part about the hotel is that they have a AMAZING breakfast they put out in the mornings. Eggs, potatoes, muffins of all sorts, bagels, lox & cream cheese, salami and various cheeses, fruit, tons of different juices and of course coffee and tea. REALLY yummy!!!! I completely recommend this place and have stayed there twice now.

We ate at the Bounty Hunter in downtown Napa and had the yummy beer can chicken. Neither Tam or I have a refined pallet for wine so we had a light pilsner but be live me the wine was flowing all around us. It was a great spot for people watching and checking out the scene.

It was a great night away and much needed. The only downside was well......I guess I snore now.....yeah that part sucked....for Tam....sorry Tam!!!!!!!!! Love ya!!!!!!

Aunt Wendy ROCKS!!!!

Aunt Wendy took our kids for 5 days over spring break!!! They went to her house and then to Santa Cruz for 2 nights. They had a ton of fun! Cousin Bryce went and Aunt Karen and Brett went down for a little time at the beach also!!!

You can check out Aunt Wendy'sSanta Cruz Photos and see the smiles on their faces!!!

Sorry but your going to have to "old school" it and cut and paste the link my friends......

Luis ROCKS!!!!!!!

I came home the other day from work and there was a surprise waiting for me!!! A totally cool CD music mix from one of our favorite "you wear the shirt so well" friends Luis!!! I IMMEDIATELY put it in and started doing some salsa dancing!!! Luis you ROCK!!!!

You officially have a permanent invitation to our pool all summer and well if the days are too hot and that brown truck and brow uniform feels like it's on fire....what the heck...just jump the fence and take a cool dip!!! The invit to our first summer salsa and patron party will have you and Lori's name on it!!!!

Yeah for Wolfie & Friends!!!!

Wolfie had a big math test this last week. His buddies at school all helped him study and even during recess. I think the deal was if you didn't pass the math test you had to write 100 or 1000 sentences over spring break. He got a B and we are so proud of him. Math's HARD!!!! We also want to send a HUGE thanks out to his friends who all helped him study!!! You guys are GREAT friends !
