Father's Day Weekend

It was a very nice weekend.
First, we made donuts and sausage for breakfast on Saturday. They were yummy, so bad for us, but yummy.

Then we went to Ventura Beach for the day. Oh, Jonathan's gift was a new beach chair. It was super cold and windy when we first got there, but it didn't take long to warm up. As you can see we love to play in the sand. We didn't do any swimming, but we played in the water a little bit. The beach we usually go to has rip tides now :(

The kids are chasing the birds

We dug 2 deep holes and then a tunnel

Nathan colapsed the bridge with his face, mouth open. He had sand EVERYWHERE, mouth, ears, nose, luckily he closed his eyes.
The kids always want to be buried in the sand

A little fun in the water

Sunday I spent the morning baking cookies and preparing lunch to take to Tehachapi. Ty and Michelle came with us and we had lunch with John and Mary. It was really nice.

This is the kids being funny on our way home from Tehachapi

After that we headed to my folks house for dinner and visiting.

All in all a great weekend. Now on to the next event - Teresa's birthday on Wed. and Party on Sat.

New Glasses

After much searching Teresa was finally able to find frames that she liked. And they only took 4 days instead of the 8-10, she was so excited. It's a new prescription too, so new frames and she can see better. She keeps telling me she has all things to be happy about. New glasses, a clean room, good books to read and her birthday in 5 days.

I think she looks so pretty, yes, I guess I should say pretty instead of cute. Afterall, she is almost 11 :)

(her hair isn't short, it's in funny twisted pig tails :)

I think this is my 100th post

Fondant People cake

I made my first fondant people for Amanda's dad's Birthday cake. Here is the finished product.

On the other side is a little golf picture and a guitar, all his hobbies.

Last week

Jonathan was gone for 3 days last week for his grandfather's funeral. We are SO glad he's home. The kids made a fun Welcome Home picture on the walk outside

Just a few pictures -
Teresa didn't want to kill the tomato worm, so we just moved it to the front yard

(They are so ugly! But nice picture, Teresa)

Teresa and I painted our toes and watched a movie late one night. The next morning Nathan decided he needed blue toes. He did a good job and only got a tiny bit on the kitchen floor

Thursday we got to watch Ayda for awhile. I put both little kids in the bike trailer and we went to the park. It was really fun, we all had a good time.
Nathan could swing all afternoon and be so happy
