We went over to Hannah's house to hang out and she let the boys decorate some cookie pops. She had made cookie dough earlier that morning. She rolled it into balls and put it on a stick on a cookie sheet. She got out tons of different candy and let the boys decorate. They ate tons of candy, then did some pretty awesome decorating. It was a lot of fun, and Vander is already talking about how he wants to do it again. :)
How exciting is it that we went from the bottom of the line phones that could only make phone calls to the top of the line phones that can do pretty much everything...super exciting. Justin decided if we were going to get texting, that we may as well get data too and a phone that could support it. Sweet. No complaints here, my new phone is super cool. (And it has a bright pink case- LOVE it)!

Vander really really really loved swim lessons and he made sure I knew that. In fact he asked me when he was going to get to take more like every day...so, being the awesome parents that we strive to be we signed him up for more lessons. They were at 6pm (the only time slot left) in Morgan Hill- this time he was a jellyfish. He loved going. They were at the Morgan Hill Aquatic Center where to our surprise there was an awesome water area and 1 1/2 foot pool with water slides. It was really awesome. Sadly, Oliven only got to enjoy it once before they shut it down for the season, but Vander got to enjoy it a few times. (Oliven did, however, cherish the fact that he got mommy all to himself for hours at a time). The whole experience was really pretty great. The only down side was the timing because dinner at 5pm was sometimes quite a challenge. We will not miss getting back to our regular schedule and I am super excited to have a little fish who can't wait for next summer to go swimming again! Love it!!!
Just so everyone knows that our home away from home is officially Gilroy Gardens, followed by the Children's Discovery Museum...we went again today. This time Tom, Sarah and Emma joined us. We had a good time. It was too cold to go in the water area- again. How is it too cold in the summer...baffling.
This morning Vander looked at me and said, "Hi sweet lady. I wanted to call you sweet lady because you do sweet things for me all the time." Nicest thing he's ever said to me. :) Honestly I think my 3 year old just essentially said, "Thanks for doing a good job mom." He also asked if he could marry me some times and if that would make him like a daddy.

Sunday I hosted a block party for my street. I don't remember much of it because I got a migraine shortly after it started that didn't really go away until Wednesday night! Yikes. No fun. No more talking about it. It's gone now and that is what matters.

Our friends Michael and Nicole came over to play games with us on Friday night and again on Sunday night. Justin couldn't have been happier. Friday night we played 3 games of Pandemic, it took 3 because we lost the first 2. On Sunday night we started out with Settlers (what a close game, Nicole and I both had 9 points, Justin won, but if he hadn't I would have and I was next and Michael had 7 points-not bad at all) and ended with a winning game of Pandemic.
