I always feel like I just posted and then look at the date...woah! I decided it's because more of my friends have blogs now then when I first started, so I spend so much time checking them I don't have time to write! I love keeping up with everyone's lives that way, though, so keep up the good work! It makes me feel like a better friend because I know things are happening when they happen instead of when it's old news.
We had a super fun, fast weekend. On Friday we decided to have a Mommy/Daddy/Allie/Detmer date. Nothing beats a night of hanging out with my sweet little family. Detmer missed out on the last part of the date, which was watching the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Of course Allie was madly in love with the movie. Lucky for me I got to keep a little light on so I could read (seriously it's hard enough to sit through a movie that I have a desire to see!).
We were so looking forward to playing outside on Saturday since it was going to be nice, but the wind was awful. Allie's had fun practicing riding her bike but the wind is not a friend of a bike rider. We still had a lot of fun playing football. I think that will always be a family favorite since Allie and Detmer are already so fond of it. It's probably the most family oriented game we can do with everyone's participation! Detmer knows how to put his arms out and catch and sometimes I can't believe how far he can throw. (This is playing with the little football in Detmer's picture). Saturday night we went to Grandpa's house for a birthday party. Yesterday was my sister in Japan, Cami, had a birthday. My dad sent us invitations which even stated the party starting Sunday, April 20 at 9 am JST, which is Saturday, April 19 at 6 for us. Grandpa made some awesome burgers and the kids had fun being maniacs as usual. We called Japan and sang Happy Birthday to Cami and she was really surprised and excited to hear from EVERYONE! We are really looking forward to seeing her and Dallin in a few months! We watched the awesome Jazz game that night and got home just in time to put the kids to bed!
Dave and I are continuing to love our calling in church, teaching the nine-year-old boys. They are so fun! Yesterday they all started paying attention to Detmer and chanting "Little Man! Little Man!" Detmer was so excited! It was too cute, I didn't even mind the interruption in the lesson.
Tonight we went to Arctic Circle for family night. We brought Zack along since Detmer is still too little to play on the toys with Allie. Dave has started softball again but this dang weather won't cooperate for us to go cheer him on. Hopefully next week we can go!
