Go Aaron go!!!
Wes and Landon (with his girlfriend, they are 5 weeks apart). I don't know what triggers the hilarity of his face, but it cracks me right up!!! Trying to impress the ladies I guess!
My little jumping fish!
We swam and played for a good 5 hours and Landon fell asleep before we even pulled out of the driveway!
It's finally warm here on the Eastern side of the state and we celebrated by SWIMMING! Our friends invited us to THEIR friends house who have an awesome pool. Here are the pics of the festivities! The Arizonians reading this are thinking "Swimming! We do this everyday!" I wish we could! We would if we lived there! My kids LOVE the water, especially Sydnie! :0) We chatted, swam, and of course ate delicious food (BBQ ribs and a smoked roast) Side note: Aaron now wants a smoker-they are only $700-HA! Sydnie and I are the only ones that got sunburned, but only minor burns! What a fun filled day in the sun! I am a true Californian-nothing is better than playin in the sun!!

I know "May Long Weekend" is a Canadian Holiday but I LOVE the name of it. It cracks me up! So for our May Long Weekend we spent it with the fam. Have you ever been to a restaurant that every part of the meal was DELICIOUS? Every bite was more tantalizing than the bite before??? As every morsel of food hit your taste buds, your mouth has a party, not to mention, the "party" lasts ALLLLLLL the way down until it hits the stomach????? WELLL....that is what this WHOLE weekend was-ONE BIG PARTY IN MY MOUTH! Carrie (my awesome cook sis-in-law) has seriously become a gourmet chef (although culinary school was never attended :0)) and we ate like Kings and Queens ALL weekend! She claims she just follows recipes, but I know it's more than that. She picks AWESOME, intense, involved, delicious looking, no-crazy-ingredient-you-don't- have-in- your-cupboard-recipes, follows them but adds her touch of love (my guess is love, why else would they be so good?). What did we eat, you ask? WELL:
Burgers and Cucumber and Tomato Salad
Banana Pancakes with Coconut Syrup (all homemade of course, the syrup is to die for)
Black Bean Tacos
Turtle Cheesecake (thanks honey for having a B-day so we could eat this)
Sweet Pork Salad (this is LITERALLY the most savory, delicious meal I have EVER eaten)
Apple Rubarb Crisp
I could go on, but I will spare you! Now, for one that LOVES food, it was the best weekend my testbuds have experienced!!! Now before this gets too long we also had fun playing! The kids LOVE LOVE LOVE playing with their cousins and they even got to see Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Danner for a day! Aaron had his 30th B-day! YUP! He is officially old! Carrie and Tyler, how do we love thee? Let me count the ways!!! Thanks for the fun May Long Weekend, letting us mess your house up, the great company and for the AMAZING food! LOVE YOU GUYS!

I know, I know, Landon overload...but nothing else has been happenin around here. Just waiting for school to be out in 30 days (but whose counting). We have decided to rent our house since there has been no offers to buy in 7 months. So after Sydnie gets out of school we are outta here!!!! 6 months of being a single mom can wear on a person. I have been thinking of all the positives that came out of this. 1) I am stronger and a more independent woman 2) I realize that I LOVE my hubby, DEEPLY! (I knew this before, but it just made me that much more grateful) 3) Made me realize how much Aaron does around here to care for the house, kids, me etc. 4) I get to watch ANYTHING I want on TV!!! I am just soo glad it is almost over though! HALLELUJAH! Hopefully we never have to do this again!!
The pics: Landon is THE BIGGEST HAM ever (wonder where he gets this from????). He was eating a cookie/cracker and was pulling the SILLIEST faces. I LOVE the one of the kids in the bath, they all look soooooooo happy! When the kids are happy, I am happy!

It's been a SICK week here. I got bronchitis, and then Landon got a very high fever with cold, then Syd got a fever. This laid us out for days! UGH! Aaron came home on Friday and took care of us! Nice hubby/dad!!! We did very little all weekend, just recovered. We watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (wasn't too fond of it, and Aaron hated it) and we went to the park yesterday for Mothers Day! It was a beautiful day and we ate lunch there and played frisbee, which I failed to bring my camera! Oh well. It was a fun Mom's day complete with BBQ hamburgers for dinner! Yum! I love being a mom, there nothing greater!!
Here are just some random pics. Syd and Wes LOVE to do "head wraps" after the shower and Landon eating chicken nuggets for the 1st time!

It's a "PICTURE TAG" and this is how it goes. Go to your pictures and go to the 5th folder. Then open up the 5th picture and post it. Then tag 5 people when you are done. Have fun! I tag whoever wants to play!!!
This is Syd at 11 months. Sorry about the nakedness, just following the rules! LOL!
