The Boy Turns 10

Hope everybody out there had a good Mother's Day! Mine was ok. I unpacked the whole day, which wasn't fun. However, I got a great gift from my boys, and D made me a steak dinner. I had a yellowjacket in my bedroom. What is it with me and animals (or insects as the case may be) coming into my house?

Yesterday we spent the day back up north. Shane had his birthday party. Wait, let me back up. Collin had a birthday party for someone in his class at the bowling alley. Then, we had two hours to kill before Shane's party (and with our house an hour away and all) we went put-putting. Then, Shane's party was at the skating rink. OK, so back in the day, I was good. I mean, I had the white roller skates, with the orange wheels, and the big orange pom-pom thingies on top. Any chance I went, I was there. Well, that was a long...long...long time ago. I stink now. I was trying my best to roll along, but these little kids were speeding past me. I thought to myself...OK, back in the 80's I would have skated circles around you, little kid. Oh, wait a minute, you weren't even born yet!

D was a little better than me, however, he had a wipe out, and now his wrist is killing him. He went and bought a brace for it today. I told him to go back to work and tell everybody that he hurt it while mountain biking up the mountain, when a mountain lion attacked...but he said he was going to tell them it was from roller skating! I can no longer be responsible for the chuckles he'll get. He's been forewarned. So, it was a fun filled day of hopping from party to party, eating pizza, cake and ice cream...and being slightly sore when I woke up this morning. Here's some pictures.

So, here's Shane doing the Limbo on roller skates. Luckily D didn't do that, he would have thrown his back out! He He! Cool!

Cute picture here. Staring at the one candle that didn't go out!

Gee, thanks mom...books.

OK, so once again, Collin doesn't fail in giving me a good laugh! There was an arcade there. He said mommy, can I go play. I said no sweetie, I don't have any of the tokens (thinking I can outsmart my 5 year old here...seriously). He said, no, look over there. There's a machine over there. If you put a dollar in mommy, you get a WHOLE 100 pennies! OK, how can I resist that? Here's a dollar. He went over to try to put the bill in. the dollar goes...BZZZ out it comes. We've all been there. Well, this was his first experience with it. This picture is him saying, "The dollar's no good, mommy!"

Have a good week!

Looks like a great weekend! Happy birthday, Shane!

That roller skating limbo totally brought back memories! I think if I tried to roller skate now, I would hurt a lot more than just my wrist! Did they have races? Did you win??

Hope your Mother's Day was just as nice.
