Week in Review
Written on July 27, 2007 by Rylan & Kaitlyn.
We have been having some crazy wicked storms this week. One day, we were driving out to go see where our new house will be built and there was a crazy dust storm. I couldn't see anything. Cars were stopping or going really really slow. Sometimes you could barely see more than 10ft ahead. It was that dusty. It didn't help that the freeway was surrounded by dirt fields. That's Arizona for ya.
`We took a trip over to Party City the other day because my mom and dad are always ahead of the game when buying party supplies or birthday gifts. We stopped and noticed they were having some great clearance deals. We picked up all of my party supplies for $4.25. It normally would have been over $30. Talk about a great deal. For those who are interested in knowing, I will be having a Jo Jo The Circus Clown themed party this year. We are still trying to determine where we will be having it though. I'm counting down the days.
Tomorrow, my sister will be 3 weeks old. Time seemed to slow down after she arrived. It just seems like the weeks are taking longer lately. We picked up a scale last night to weigh her because we want to make sure she is eating enough and not just using my mom as a pacifier. She is a lot more responsive lately and still a whole bunch of fun to hold. I still like her a whole bunch.
Since the weather has been a bit more manageable lately, I think I will ask mom and dad to take us to the park. I always have a good time on the swings and going down the slides. It's been a while since I've been to one because the plastic gets so hot it burns your butt. Not a fun way to spend the day. Besides, who really wants to go outside when its 115F. It's terrible I tell ya.
Last weekend we went to my Grandpa Paul and Grandma Debra's house to swim. We met up with my great Aunt and Uncle as well. It had been a while since I had seen them so I was a bit nervous and i never was too OK with it all despite being in the warm water and having fun. I liked sitting on the steps and holding on the bar. I have never done that before. A storm began to roll in so we had to get out before I wanted too. I had fun the rest of the night in their house running around.
Have a good weekend. Hopefully the storms continue for us here. We could certainly use more rain.
