Hollywood Connection

If you haven't been, you should go. It was such a blast. Monday are family days and you can get everything for pretty cheap. It was also President's Day so they opened earlier than usual. I think the biggest hit was the bumper cars. All three boys went over a dozen times each. The younger two really liked the crawly gym thing and the older two went on the dragon coaster a ton. We even tried our hand at rollerskating. That was a bit of a joke. Desirae wanted to stay on the carpet, Andrew cried the whole time and only went around 1/2 a time then took the skates off, Benji and Spencer did alright but they really didn't have fun. I'm pretty sure it took us longer to get all their skates on and back off than they actually used them. Maybe we'll just try the older two again next year. So after that Desi needed a nap so we went to Auntie Kate's house and laid her down while Kat gave me a massage. I love having a massage therapist for a sister ;} I love her regardless but is sure is a nice perk. While we were gone Gary took the three boys miniature golfing. I think they went through the course twice. When Desi and I got back Aunt Tamie had gotten there with her brood and everyone was having a great time. Upstairs they have an arcade so the kids played games, won tickets and redeemed them for useless junk that I threw away the next day but they loved it so that's all the matters, right? We even got free hot dogs with our all-day passes so we had lunch at the diner. fun, fun, fun...

3 tbsp butter
2 tsp active dry yeast or 1 1/2 tsp fast rice yeast
1. Add water to bread pan
2. Add dry ingredients and tap to settle ingredients. place butter around outer edges of pan
3. make a slight well in middle of dry ingredients and add the yeast.
4. place bread in breadmaker and select dough setting. after it is done remove dough and let rest 15 minutes. knead dough for 1 minute. shape into rolls and bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350.

Hey, where you been? You guys doing okay?

I know, you are probably just super busy with all the kidos and school but I still worry about you.

We are going to be out next week. It's going to be a really quick trip. Monday we will spend with my brother, his wife, kids and brand new baby. The rest of the week Christian's family has plans up the wazoo. His younger brother is getting married and he's having an open house on Friday. Then we are leaving Saturday morning. Christian is fairly possesive of the 5 days we are there because it's the only time we get to see his family. We had a knock down blow out fight over taking Monday to visit my brother. So, I haven't even mentioned seeing any friends this time around, we just don't have the time. I can't blame him, he loves his family and longs to be around them. That's why you haven't heard anything about it. I did try to call you reciently, one of the boys answered and told me you weren't home and that his grandma and grandpa were babysitting them. So I figured you were out of town. Summer's been busy so I haven't tried again. Sorry we'll miss each other again, hopefully next summer. Hope you are having a fun summer. And you MUST update this blog so I can keep track of you!

PS- Any baby news to share yet? :P
