Wacky Week in Review

Monday: Rained all day. Decided not to go to Disneyland as planned. Just chilled inside.

Tuesday: Weather much improved. Went to Disneyland with Spencer (Ben's bro), Hillary and Miles who are staying with us for a long vacation.

Wednesday: It's getting warm.
Thursday: My birthday. The weather is warming up nicely. I got a new *pink* bike. Jake and I go for a ride around the neighborhood in our PJ's.
Later, we all go for a ride on the big, orange waste-of-tax-dollars balloon in the new Great Park of our city. I have to say, it was kind of fun.

Went to Claim Jumper for dinner. Their portions are huge. Their desserts are even more huge. Have you seen the desserts? My favorite is the I Declair: a giant sized eclair that looks like a small poodle. My cell phone stopped working so no one can call me (on my birthday!), but I get a new one I really like. The best part is the color: heather grape. Love it!
Friday: It's getting hot. My bro Ryan comes for a visit and we head for the beach to cool off a little. That night all the boys go to the Stake Fathers and Sons camp out. It's actually not much of a "camp out." The only thing between the tents and the freeway is an In-N-Out. Where, of, course, they eat dinner. Every year. They also make a fire in a portable fire pit and make s'mores. (Last year the fire was actually in a wheelbarrow which caught fire because the handles where made of wood!?)


I digress...Hill, Kate and I had a fabulous GNO: ate at Chipotle and Yogurtland, then watched two very girly, but only okay movies: Becoming Jane...which should be changed to Becoming Depressed, and 27 Dresses, which was actually pretty hilarious.

Saturday: It's stinkin' hot! Our day was packed with sports, volunteering, guests and 2 parties. I seriously thought I was going to melt...or explode. The best part of the day was getting into the cool pool at our hosts for the fab Brazilian party we went to! Thanks Matt and Tonya!

Sunday: I can't believe how hot it is in MAY. Things seemed to heat up AND get busier as the week progressed!

I'm ready for another rainy Monday with NADA to do.

Hey Kir...if you feel like it's getting too hot...you can always come over and roast here in Arizona...

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had fun eating your dessert the size of a small poodle. :) :) And I laughed about your more appropriate title for Becoming Jane. LOL!

I love Claim Jumper too. And cute bike--Ian told us all about it the other day, and I got to see it for myself this morning when your garage was open. How fun!
