Scrapbooking and Birthday Party

Whew, well what a weekend!

For myself I went on a scrapbooking retreat at a place called Dutch Harbour and had a fantastic time. So peaceful and rejuvinating, but also got a lot of scrapping done, 8 pages and 2 cards. I think thats the most scrapping I've done in the last two years! It was great to get motivated to do that again too. I was going to take pics of my layouts and post them but I forgot so I will try and post them by the end of the week. While I was there Pat was here, of course, on his own with all three kids and he took them all to Nyla's soccer and out for lunch with Nancy (his mom, or Grandma Dusty as the kids call her) and then he and the kids I guess went for a drive up the mountain. So they had a great time too and I was quite proud of Pat for being such a good dad. I really didn't worry about them because I knew he would have it under control and he has really come into his own as a father.

On Sunday I came home at about 1pm and then we were off to a birthday party for one of the boys in Nylas class. They always invite everyones families as well cause they have a big yard with a trampoline and a Zipline and a rope course set up in the forest and generally lots of fun things to do. Well all our kids had a blast of course as you can see from the pictures!
Well, hope you all had a wonderful sunny weekend as well. Oh! forgot to mention that the weekend before was Pat and I's 5th anniversary and we had a great time. We had a delicious, peaceful dinner at Jackson's Hole and then went to see Angels and Demons the first night it was out, it was great! Both the dinner and the movie.

Just a little note...

Hey all! Just droppin in to say hi, we had a busy weekend, soccer game, yard work, bonfire, more yard work, Mothers Day, more yard work, and more, you guessed it, yard work! It's so wonderful having a large yard and garden, but in spring it is kind of hellish all the work that needs to be done. Pat trimmed, mowed, raked about ten piles of dead cedar branches, rototilled and burned a bunch of dead branches etc. We are putting in more garden this year, so I walked behind while he tilled and picked out about a million rocks (well it felt like a million anyways:) The girls helped with the rocks too.
Nyla did well again at her soccer game, though she says she doesn't want to play next year, so we'll see if she continues and Cadence has cold so she was sniffling away. Gabe is such a goofball lately and has figured out how to make us all laugh so he is quite the little character. Well I need to get off to bed, but hopefully I'll post some more pics in the next few days. Take care all!

Last weekend

Well, yesterday I said I would tell about our weekend and I didn't get back to it, oops! Anyways, here's a rundown on what we did, Saturday morning Nyla had her first soccer game and it was a GORGEOUS day, beautiful and sunny and warm. She did very well and even had a turn as goalie
Her team won 4-1 and she was pretty ecstatic. So, after the game we went home and had some lunch, then we packed up all the bikes and the bike trailer, the dog, the kids and everything and went to Kokanee park for the afternoon. It was wonderful! Such a nice family day together just the five of us (and Stella of course!) outside doing something fun and active on a beautiful day, so fun in fact that I totally forgot to take any pictures, whoops!
On Sunday we just hung out at home, the weather wasn't the greatest and I felt a cold coming on, amazingly the kids were playing really well and Nyla had a birthday party just down the road. So that's about it really, oh and I finished the second book of the "Twilight" series (563 pages) in about three days, soooo good and I'm dying to read the third! Ciao for now,

Wisdom tooth part 2

Hey all,

Just thought I'd let you all know that the wisdom tooth issue went well. I was shocked that it only took the dentist about three seconds to actually pull the tooth out! And besides being frozen on half of my face for a couple of hours, it wasn't a big deal at all, hardly any pain or anything. I was kind of waiting for it to get worse but it never progressed past a dull ache. Anyways gotta go now but will try to write later and tell about our weekend.
