Blog Slacker

Okay so I know I haven't posted for a little bit. At first I was like well there is nothing to blog about, just the same old stuff goin on. Then I got a message from my 2 cute sisters reminding of what a blog slacker I am. You girls are too funny! So this is an attempt to get better at this.

This past weekend Dave and the boys left late Thursday night after Kawika's baseball game to the Father and Sons Campout. They were so excited! Dave took pictures on his cell phone and I still need to figure out how to get those(my middle name is technically challenged). They had a blast getting dirty, riding quads, swimming in a cool swimming hole, and staying up all night playing games and eating candy(Dave is usually the first one out!)! When they got back my car smelled like a camp fire! They had a great time and there weren't any catastrophes(like the year Dave sliced his finger pretty bad, Kalani fell in a cactus, Kawika had a big goose egg on his head, and they locked they keys in the trunk-I can't believe it happened all in one trip). They boys came back happy and filthy!
Saturday night Dave and I went out to celebrate our 12th anniversary!! Where does the time go!!?? We had the yummiest dinner at Olive Garden. On Sunday morning (our actual anniversary) I woke up a bunch of gifts that came in dozens.

A dozen of these beauties!

Just a warning this can get mushy but the gifts were so cute I had to brag about my wonderful husband a little bit!
I had to wait 12 minutes between opening my presents and each one came with a cute note.
The note said Don't you know the best things come in 12-
A calendar with a sweet treat for every month of the year
A dozen eggs-"You are 'eggsactly' what I needed!"
A dozen kisses-hershey that is-yummy cookies and creme
A dozen donut holes-"You fill the 'holes' in my life"
A ruler-"There is no way to 'measure' my love for you"
A cute desk clock-"I love you every hour of the day"
12 dollars-"Money can't buy the type of love we have"
The kids and I had a lot of fun opening the gifts. The kids were cute and sung Happy Anniversary song to us to the tune of Happy Birthday and even made a card for us! It was a great day! I am so grateful for the amazing husband I have and that we get to spend eternity together!

Okay so my little boy is not so little any more and I am feeling a little old-okay a lot! We celebrated his birthday this past weekend by taking him to a Diamond Back baseball game with a few friends. Dave and I had a lot of fun with 5 boys especially as they sang "We are the champions. . ." at the top of their lungs while we entered the parking garage. The parking attendant looked a little concerned.
They got free hats and pom poms (Ren, Matt, Kyle, Kawika, and Kalani hiding behind Wika. He didn't want anything to do with the wigs.)

We all had way too much sugar and sunflower seeds, but isn't that what it's all about? The Diamond Backs won 10-3 and because they had more than 8 runs everyone got a coupon for a free chalupa from Taco Bell, which we stopped and got on our way home! Kawika is an awesome kid and I could not survive without all of his fabulous help! He loves baseball, basketball, legos, reading, and hanging with his dad!
