Girls weekend/Boys weekend

This past weekend I was able to have Girls weekend with just my two girls. The boys went with some friends to an Angels game in Anaheim.
We had so much fun. We slept in on Saturday, and then got ready, picked up my mom, and went to the mall for some school shopping and to go to Build A Bear. Carlee and Katie each got a new bear, and some new clothes for school. Dillard's had a "Kids Day", so they had activities. They had a hula hoop contest, with prizes (Webkinz accessories), face painting, drawing for a backpack, etc. After that we went to McDonald's for lunch, and then back to Grandma Mira's for swimming and dinner. We ended up swimming until about 9 p.m. It was so fun and relaxing.
On Sunday, we went to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, with some friends. The movie was great, but it was LONG!!!!!

The boys went to Anaheim to an Angels game, with a friend of Drazen's and his dad. They had a great time, to say the least!!! Angels are Drazen and Braxton's FAVORITE team. And they had great seats. They sat in the 2nd and 3rd row from the field at 3rd base. And of course, got to see security in full action. I guess some guy went on the field, and got arrested immediately. Why do people have to be so dumb? That didn't phase these Angels fans though. Angels won the game.
After the game, they went to dinner, and some night swimming at the pool in their hotel. On Sunday, they just got up, had breakfast, and drove home.

This is a memorial for #34 Adenhart.

Jeffy's baby!

Well, Jeff's truck was 5 years old and reached 91,000 miles, so he decided it was time to go looking for a new truck. He looked on the internet last Sunday night, and Monday night we went and looked at trucks. On Tuesday morning, Jeff became a proud owner of a brand new 2009 F150 FX4. The truck is so nice!!!It has a leather seats, fully loaded. I was able to drive it on Tuesday, but he couldn't wait for me to get home, so he can take his new baby for a ride. He is so excited!!!!

51's game

For Drazen's end of the season party from Peccole Little League, we all went to a
51's game last week. Drazen and his team went down to the field, and had their name called out when they ran to the position with the player from 51's. It was cool. At the 7th inning stretch Drazen and his two buddies from the team went into the press box to sing "Take me out to the Ball Game"! His coach said that the two boys were kind of shy and wasn't sure if they would do it, but that Drazen said he would. Drazen has NO SHAME for things like that. He will do anything. I videoed them, but you can't really hear it. Maybe, this was Drazen's big break!!! American Idol here he comes!! haha


I guess we are finding things to do now that baseball is over. Swimming at Grandma Mira's is always fun and full of adventure ( for those of you that know my mom. Jen and I packed up the kids a couple of weeks ago and went to cool off in her pool. Hannah and Neuman were here also, so that made it extra fun for the kids.


M.J. and the kids drove down to Vegas to hang out with us for a day. We had so much fun. I haven't seen M.J. since Christmas, and I don't even remember when the last time was that our kids played together. Jen and her boys came over also. Dylan and Miles were really good friends, when we all lived across town.

Legion Baseball June-July 09

Drazen played his first year of American Legion Baseball for Sierra Vista H.S. this summer. WOW!!! I can't believe I have a child old enough to be in high school! This was a reality check, seeing him with all the other kids (young men) his age or older. Some were sophomore's, some were juniors. It's crazy!!! He had a great season though. They had practices Monday through Friday from 9-11a.m. and games at 5p.m. every day of the week. (Monday through Sunday!!!! So, needless to say we have been slightly busy!!!!! And now it's all over, and we don't know what to do with our time!!!! Drazen really enjoyed it though. He played 1st base, left field, center field, and he caught.

That's Drazen behind the plate! The only day I took pictures.

And that's Drazen batting. He was #9.

4th of July

For the weekend of the 4th, we went to BrianHead with Ty and Kristen and their kids. We had so much fun. The weather was great. It was a nice and relaxing weekend. The kids played, we took walks, Jeff took us fishing to his favorite spot, he even tried catching a fish for Malcolm! On our little fishing trip, Drazen hooked a rock and Katie walked into a branch. Other than that, it was a great trip. The Fire Dept. at BrianHead puts on a FANTASTIC Fireworks show!!! It was amazing!!! And all the people that come to watch, it's unbelieveable. I think it took about an hour for all the vehicles to clear up, after the Fireworks. People were coming in the morning and parking their vehicles, pulling out their chairs and bbq's, to get a good spot for the evening show.
Tanks Ty and Kristen for inviting us to come up with you. We had a great time!!!!

Katie's 1st science project, and letter people party!!!!

Katie had a science project due in kindrgarten this month. At first, I kwas a little hesitant about having a kindergartener doing a science project, but it actually turned out really cute. They had to pick out an insect to learn more about. There was a fact sheet that she had to fill out. Katie picked out a ladybug. We learned a lot about them. It was kind of neat. Then we made a ladybug out of poster board. Last Thursday, Katie had to present her report in front of the whole class. She read the report, and then she had to answer 6-7 questions from her classmates about her insect. She did so good. I am so proud of her.

On Friday, they had their Letter People Party!!!! Each child ws supposed to pick out a letter they wanted to be, and dress up. Katie picked out Mr. C for Ctton Candy!!!! We cut out 2 big C's out of poster board. One for front of her shirt and one for the back. We then decided to glue cotton candy to her shirt. By the time, the glue dried, most of the cotton candy was melted. So we decided to glue cotton balls!!! And VOILA, it worked great!!! She looked so cute going to school like that. But by the end of the school day, she was soooo done with that shirt. She wanted to change soooooooo bad!!!! And I think Ms. Kern is such an awesome teacher. Katie has really learned a lot this year.
