Yellow Chair

The yellow chair is gone.
I had a very hard time letting it go.
I have spent many hours in this chair. ** dayne at 2 weeks old. Man do I look hammered?**
Others have spent time in the chair.

And many photos have been taken in the chair.

And oh the books that I have read in that chair.

As we put her out to the curb to go to a new home. I went out and sat in it for long time. Good bye yellow chair.....

Dayne the Dancer

Dayne finished her dance class for the year. It has been a good experience for us with lots of chances to grow. They had a small class performance. I  decided to make all the girls in her class tutu's. (thanks mom ). Guess who wouldn't wear hers?
At the end she decided, Okay. Now I wear it.
Thanks Dayne for letting us Grace your Class!

Cousin Day

We were very lucky to get to go to Gilroy Gardens last week.  All the dads took the day off and away we went on a Cousin Day. It was fun to see all the kids enjoy each other. They played, ran and laughed all day. The big boys LOVEd getting to ride all the rides without parents.  The little ones were able to enjoy a few by themselves too.  It was a great day and I look forward to the next one.

Camping 2010

This year was a crazy year for us camping. In a lot of ways it was also the best.

Worst Part:
1. Dayne fell and had to go stitches.
2. Had to come up on Saturday. I didn't feel like I had enough chatting time.
3. Twisted my freaking weak ankle. Once you ruin an ankle there is no going back. It is still hurting me.
4. Forgot to make the cobbler we were in charge of when everyone was there.

Best Parts:
1. Only slept one night in the tent.
2. It was very VERY warm at night.
3. Totally enjoyed the friends.
4. Felt the service of those would helped with Dayne.
5. The kids had a great time.
6. Good food.
7. Warm---ish weather. 
8. Stayed on Sun night until super late and then drove home. Slept in my own bed.

Sometimes by the end of the night I am done. I have no more patience. No more stories to tell. No more desire to read. So what should I do? We call Grandma and Tiger on the computer and they tell the story.
Best Idea EVER!!!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

T Ball season is over. We played in 13 games (missed 2 more games) and enjoyed it all. The top picture is from the beginning of the season. By the end of the Season Crewe was able to hit the ball from the Coach pitching. It was so amazing to watch our son try something new. Join a team. Work hard. And totally reap the benefits. Way to go Crewe!

Ten years ago Rich and I decided to become a family.  And what a great family we have. I love the kids. I am crazy loving my husband. As we were out last night celebrating, Rich and I dropped some Gelato off for his Grandpa. I said to him, "Grandpa, today Rich and  I have been married for 10 years." He replied, "We made it 72 years". So really 10 years, just a drop in the bucket. But boy it's the best drop.
