Saturday was Doug's 30th birthday barbecue, which was a success! A lot of people commented on the food, so I guess that's good. Thanks to everyone that helped out with that! Doug's big present was an xbox 360 with the game Rock Band. We bought Rock Band, and then ordered the xbox off of ebay. The guy we ordered it from didn't ship it when he said he was going to, so we didn't think it would get here in time. Luckily though, it showed up at noon, right during his party, so we were able to break it out and play it while everyone was there. It's been fun so far! Now Doug has something he likes to do while I finish up these Twilight books (I'm almost done with the second book!)
My sister Amy and her family got to our house about 4 or 4:30 from Colorado, and stayed the night with us again. After the kids went to bed, we played Rock Band with them for a couple hours. Doug and Trevor were still playing it when Amy and I went to bed. They got up and left the next morning to head back to California. It was great seeing you guys!
Yesterday was FINALLY a relaxing day, without having to worry about if the house was clean or not. Doug even let me have a nap while he watched Jack, even though it was his real birthday yesterday. Happy birthday Doug-e, love you!

The boys were really intently watching the line dancing going on, it was pretty funny watching their faces! Ty just froze in that position as he was watching them. He's so stinkin' cute!
On Sunday, we took a drive up Springville canyon where Doug's family was. Gwen made some delicious food, and we hung out and talked for a couple hours. Plus, Doug and Jack got to sport their new shoes we bought before dinner on Saturday. Jack finally needs a pair since he likes to walk around while holding onto your hands. Plus they were half off with Doug's pair, and who doesn't like half off? It's kind of funny to see them on him though, because his legs are so big that he doesn't have ankles.
On a sad note, my aunt passed away last week from a horrible degenerative disease (I can't remember the name of it right now). Her funeral was today in Colorado Springs, so I wasn't able to attend. My uncle passed away over a decade ago, so it's good that they can be reunited now. To my two cousins they left behind: I love you guys, and am thinking of you!

And here's his first encounter with a balloon. Talk about amazement!
Here are a few pics of her kids:
Marnie and Brooke
Marnie kind of liked Buddy... can you tell? And Jack enjoyed watching all the kids run around.
Here's Cole thinking he can hide from me while I snap his picture.
They'll stay the night again next Saturday night on their way back home. We're excited to see them already!

Notice the ear-tugging: a clear cut sign that he's tired.

He was really into trying to grab this weed.
This is her little boy, Tyler, when she told him to give her his BEST smile. Isn't that funny?
And here are a few of Jack and his dad in the pool. What cute boys; I'm so proud to say they're mine! What hot smiles. Ladies, watch out: double babe alert!
