Good Friday – Camping in Monte Cristo
The boys played in the dirt, went on “adventures”, rode their bikes and scooters and played all day. We enjoyed simple camping food, smores and good company! They do love camping!
Easter Sunday – We went to church :) but had trouble getting the kids to cooperate for a family picture, oh well. I taught Relief Society for the first time in forever but I think that it went well!
Monday – I don’t remember what we did? Relaxed? Cleaned? Played? It must have been a catch up day! :)
Tuesday – Play dates with friends and a trip to the ER. We went to the El Dorado Nature Center in the morning and then Ben fell while running with a Nerf gun in his hands (try explaining that one to a nurse who was new to our country and whose eyes got really big when I said gun which I tried to explain what it was, plastic and that it shoots foam bullets not real ones. They didn’t call CPS on me but Ben did get a nice big stitch in his chin but he was so brave and didn’t cry and didn’t have to be restrained while they stitched him up! Oh, and if you’re bleeding at the ER you get in faster/right away but the glares from the other people who have to wait aren’t very nice!
Wednesday – Library “Splash Pad” with friends and then a trip to Oceanside to prep for Thursday. Sam said (and I quote), “Now this is a vacation!” when they upgraded our two bedroom condo to a three bedroom deluxe (with three full bathrooms and two of them with jacuzzis; it even had a name and was as big as my house). Thanks Dad/Grandpa!
Thursday – Sea World with Grandma and Grandpa Driggs – My parents were taking a cruise down the coast and were in San Diego for the day. Thad had to work so we met them and went to Sea World for the day. The boys loved it and are already planning their next trip down there! They especially loved the touch tanks (the cleaner fish were a favorite), the sharks, the giant turtles, the Shamu show and the dolphins. Nathan even went on the Manta Ray ride all by himself since Emma was asleep in the carrier and Sam was too scared to go on it. He had so much fun too!
Friday – I think that we were trying to recover from a few busy days and did a lot of sleeping (well, the littlest ones did). I had ordered two new games for the Xbox that I got on sale for $5 a piece on Amazon and we played inside while they slept!
Saturday – Daddy went to build some steps at someone’s house for Mormon Helping Hands day and we did laundry and cleaned up around here. I got Emma’s bed set up (bye bye bassinet) and folded lots of laundry. In the evening we enjoyed Lakewood 4th’s ward conference!
Sunday – Church and family day…couldn’t believe that our time was already over. Really? Ten days were already gone? Oh well. It will be May by the end of the week and then SUMMMMMMER!
Thanks for reading my journal! :)
p.s. These pictures somehow never got posted of Emma when she was five months…she’s pretty cute eh? :)
