Ten Years

I just realized that I haven't blogged about Camryn's 10th birthday and I simply must...for posterity of course!

My beautiful baby girl is 10 year old now and it's really taking a lot of getting used to.  She is growing up, is now over halfway through her childhood!  Wow.

We gave her an awesome birthday weekend with a slumber party on the 10th and new ear piercing from Grampa Randy on the 11th, as well as Red Robin for dinner that night.  She was also showered with various gifts from other family.

We got her a new bike!
And it's already gotten a flat (but Grampa fixed it)!

Cami is still pretty much her same ole self...turning 10 hasn't changed her overnight.  BUT, she did get up a couple days later and cook scrambled eggs for herself and AJ by herself.  What??

So summer is plugging along nicely.  We're mostly just hanging out, with events thrown in here and there.  I went to TWO parties this past Saturday, Reina's Bridal Shower and Scott Shaw's bday party.  That's pretty much unheard of for me!  Our 12th wedding anniversary was Sunday which makes me very happy, but it wasn't a super special day.  Kinda sorta sucked cuz Mark hurt his shoulder early on Saturday and it was still pretty painful on Sunday.  But, Mark did grill us some steaks and we saw our Weier friends for awhile.  I watched the Weier boys yesterday so John could work before they head to Alaska.

Next, Cami is taking a 2-day trip up to Birch Bay in Blaine, WA with her Girl Scout troop.  The following weekend we will have our housewarming party and the next day Cami will go to Girl Scout summer camp for 6 days.

Not sure what August will hold besides back-to-school shopping and a couple doctors appointments for the kids before they do go back to school.  Maybe my mom and Doug will come visit.  Oh and maybe Mark will give nocturnal dialysis a try....

I'm not sure why, but I can't seem to spend much time on my hobbies.  With the kids home all day it just seems like I'm constantly distracted by them.  That, and they stay up later, partially cuz they can and partially cuz we always lose track of the time in the evenings.  It took us a week to sit down and watch the movie "2012" cuz we had to think of it before it got too late cuz it's 2 1/2 hours long!

Speaking of time: "Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future is not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires." ~Charles Caleb Colton
