No water?

Conversation with Brynn a few moments ago:

I hear her upstairs to herself: "Are you serious? Are you serious?!"

Then to me: "Mom, the water doesn't work upstairs. It won't come on. So it probably doesn't work in the kitchen, too."

So I get up and turn on the kitchen sink. It's fine. We go upstairs to the bathroom. I turn on the light and then turn on the sink.

Brynn: "Ohhh, so it only works with the light on!"

Working our way back

Our nephew Martin turned 8 in May. Eight is an important birthday because now he is old enough to decide to be baptized in our church. That is what he wanted to do, so this past weekend Grandma and Grandpa helped me out so that we could be in Arizona for his special day. Dacey got to come because she still flies free! Dad got to spend some quality time with the other girls while we were gone. This was the first trip that I have made away from the family. Everyone else has left me at some point, but never the other way around. It was Dacey's first airplane ride and she did great! At least until we had to wait on the plane for a couple hours BEFORE we got to take off. But that was the last leg of the trip home. Her usual routine was to fall asleep right before take off and sleep for at least part of the flight. The other part was not too bad. We didn't do a lot over the weekend, but what we did was fun. With Grandpa's mobility in question, there was a lot of time spent at the hotel. Adam's kids came and spent the night and most of the following day with us. All the family got together to see UP, attend the baptism and go for Chinese at Braden's favorite place. It was a short trip, but we had fun.

We had a posh ride to the hotel where the cousins were waiting for us.

What we called his pirate face.

Wondering what else she gets to eat.

Score! Thanks for not paying attention Grandpa!

So much

Sometime you don't realize how much actually goes on in your life until you have to try and remember it all. Just since the beginning of May we've had a family vacation, 3 birthdays, the end of school, and another trip (those are the things I can remember!) Check out all the posts because I don't think one big blog barf is the way to go this time!
