PARTY!!!!!!!!

A lot has happened since the Nelsons' arrival.  A lot of playing in the playhouse, trampoline, and swinging in the back yard.  I put a mesh fence along the back to keep little tykes from falling in the stream which is running pretty high right now.  It's working fairly well except Ty keeps trying his best to find a way around it.  Saturday we went to the Dastrup abode and went to WHEELER HISTORIC FARM with everyone but Chad (sick) and Brigham (working) and Buff (mission).  I thought the best part was when the little ones were looking out the window of the tree house and grandma would jump up from under the tree house and scare them.  It was hilarious.  Ty got to sit on a John Deer and he was in heaven.  We saw turkeys and rabbits and a little tiny goat with a little tiny horn.  Sunday the family came over for dinner..we had pizza... Chad was still sick so that arm of the family didn't make it.  Brigham was still working and Buff was still on her mission.  We did have a rousing game of croquet though.  About mid way through the game, Katie fell behind the pack.  Lindy needed feeding so Marilyn took over Katie's mallet.  She stayed about a hoop or two behind for the rest of the game.  Stevo finished first and was poison.  Cambrie finished next.  I finished next but was quickly eliminated by Steve who obviously doesn't really care about making amends for making me wear that tuxedo at the wedding. Anyway...to make a long story short, Marilyn ended up winning!  Life just isn't fair.  Marilyn walks around with a smile on her face these days just thinking about being able to hold Lindy...which she does at EVERY opportunity.  Lindy sleeps a lot, but I've seen her awake more this last week than ever.  Yesterday Chad was feeling much better so Erica invited the entire clan over for dinner and family night on short notice.  Chinese Chicken salad.  I ate it but didn't understand a word it said. The cousins ran around and played and played and had a great time together.  It's so fun to watch them starting to be able to interact and play and have a good time.  Give it another year and they'll all be best buddies.  After we thoroughly trashed Chad/Erica's place, we left.  Ya know, there's not quite anything that compares to being hugged by a two year old.  To be continued......

Yeah! good times! Gotta love it! Sorry, buff. You were the only one to miss last nights big event at the Chad Groneman's fam. But you will get to taste their Oriental Chicken salad. I will make it! Thanks again to Chad and Erica for hosting a great event at their house!
