With Troy and the boys gone to scout camp and Anna up at Snowbird with Cambria, Kaela, Emma, and I have had some time on our hands. We decided to play!!

Yesterday we went to the mall . Kaela and Emma picked out new outfits for their Build-a-bears. We saw a lot of scarry people!!! Kaela kept switching sides of the stroller so she wouldn't be near any of the weirdos. Man, and were there weirdos! Where do those people come from? I think the only other place you see them is at amusement parks.

We ended the night with a sleepover in my bed. They think sleeping in my bed is the coolest thing. I kind of like having them there too when Troy is gone.

Today, we picked up Emma Catmul (Kaela's buddy) and the four of us headed down to the Gateway Mall (another weirdo hangout.) The girls wore their swimsuits and had a great time playing in the fountain there. They also really liked trying clothes on and giving me a fashion show.

It was all great fun and we can't wait to see what becomes of tomorrow!

There really is a mom to this family!

I'm the one in the middle-sandwiched between two of my running friends, Amy & Joanna. Little Emma is to my lower right.

Troy's 38th Birthday

We celebrated Troy's birthday today. Grandpa John and Grandma Shirley came for dinner. We had Troy's barbequed Terriyaki Salmon, that was so yummy, and Mom's chocolate cake. We had fun chatting with Grandpa and Grandma about days past and the kids loved snuggling with the puppy.

Here's Grandpa John and Grandma Shirley

Kaela with the last puppy. The others have already been sold.

Anna's Birthday Party

Anna had her 9th Birthday on the 11th. Her party was on Friday the 13th (doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo.) Luckily, nothing went wrong. She had a party "tiedye" for!

Cute Anna has such a fun personality!
