I got a 4 day weekend for my birthday… Ok, I got one day off for my birthday, one day off for Independence Day, and then my normal weekend; however we celebrated all weekend long. I will have to update this when I get home to post some pictures of our fun.
Thursday, my 31st birthday:
My mother-in-law had surgery to repair her broken arm. We spent a lot of the day at the hospital. Things went well and hopefully she is on the mend. The kids went with Nate so Bryan and I went to dinner at Iggy’s with my parents and then shopping after.
I went to get pampered. I got my nails done and a very cute pedicure. Bryan waited at home for the window tinters and Comcast to come. Then we went to Layton to get his ears gauged, or the start of his ears being gauged. No worries… they are going to be tiny, although last night he told Ty when they are done she can put his fist through them. Not sure if she believes him or not! LOL!
Then we went to SLC to stay in a hotel for the night. The room we had was beautiful (Thanks Liesl!) and my parents got a room too. We started our evening in the hotel bar and the bartender gave us some yummy appetizers on the house. Then a quick walk down to PF Chang’s where we met my friends and then to the piano bar. Thanks to Blake and Heather for the TrueBlood Season 1 and to Jenn for the gift certificate for a massage!
Saturday, July 4th:
We got home from SLC about 10am and forgot about the North Ogden Parade. We couldn’t get home so had to park at Blake’s and Bryan hopped the fence and walked home to get our chairs so we could head up to Snow Basin. It’s a family tradition. A BBQ and the Kap Brothers. It ended up being a very nice time.
My MIL’s birthday is the 4th so we went to their house for a BBQ dinner and chocolate cake shots. Yum! We ended up staying over at my BIL’s house that night ( there were A LOT of chocolate cake shots going on).
I dropped Wrigley-pigley off to get her hair cut. Boy, did she need it. She is a new dog now. I went to church for the first time in 3 weeks. I had a great time in CA and in Moab, but I really missed going to worship. It was a beautiful way to spend my morning. When I got home, Bryan took me to the movies. We saw “ My Sister’s Keeper”. I read the book, Jodie Picolut is one of my favorite authors. The movie was good… but very sad. I think anything cancer related hits me hard. Seeing those bald chemo heads reminded me so much of what my mom went through the past year. By the end of the movie, I had tears streaming down my face however I was not as bad as the hysterical lady in front of us who was snorting and gagging and all sorts of worked up. After the movie, Bryan and I went to TGIFridays for dinner.
At 7pm we met Nate to get the kids and stopped at Zeppe’s. The kids had a great weekend. They spend a lot of time with their aunts/uncles/cousins.
They start Vacation Bible School tonight at Elim Lutheran and they are looking forward to it. We have another week-long home stand at the Raptors starting tomorrow and I think we may go to Park City on Sunday. Summer is busy in the Erwin-Williams household, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
