Welcome back an happy Tuesday! What a week last week was with John traveling for work, car troubles, basketball games starting for Brandon, a couple college tours for Justin, moving Tyler home and, Father's Day. Crazy summer days! Hopefully things will settle down a bit moving forward because I can only juggle so much. At least we don't have school too.
Here's a look at last week's pictures:
Day 162- Monday, 6/11/18
Brandon is finishing up basketball practice with the in-coming freshman basketball hopefuls. The summer league games start this week
Day 162- Tuesday, 6/12/18
Today I spent the day dealing with a busted front axle. John is away with our other car on business so thank goodness we also have Tyler's truck and Justin as another driver so I could drop the car off to get it fixed and then still get some work done remotely. Amazingly enough it was done just in time to run Brandon to his first game out in Elk Grove.
Day 164- Wednesday, 6/13/18
Bella is hot and sprawled out under the main ceiling fan. She is also sad as you can see by her droopy ears because she doesn't like it when John is gone on overnight trips. She likes to have all her peeps home and accounted every afternoon.
We're here at the second basketball game of the week. All the games are held in Elk Grove and sadly they are during rush hour so traffic getting there and back is a nightmare. We have to plan for it to take at least an hour to get there or back when it should be more like 20 min. Still it's fun to see my boy play. After we finally got home this is where I found Rusty. It's over 90 out and he still tunnels under the covers to sleep the day away. Tyler's bed is his go to spot but he's going to have to find another spot soon because in a couple days Tyler will be home wanting his bed back.
Day 166- Friday, 6/15/18
We started the day with a road trip to LA to help Tyler pack up and move home for the summer. Justin also wanted to visit a couple smaller state schools in the area so on the way down we stopped at Cal State Northridge where you'll find many of these beautiful palm tree clusters. After Tyler's last final we met up with him to quickly get him out of the dorm before he had to run off to work for a few hours. We had him moved out in record time--30 minutes tops! We're so happy to see him and eager to have him back home. It was a super full day so we treated ourselves to some Diddy Riese which is a Westwood must and then retired for the night.
Tyler had one last work shift first thing this morning so Justin and I checked out Cal State Fullerton which has a really nice campus with an amazing arboretum that Justin fell in love with. It was a good way to kill time and stretch our legs before the long drive home. Thankfully Tyler wanted to help by taking a turn at the wheel. It's about 6 hours so breaking it up with multiple drivers is a better way to go. We're home bound people!
It feels great to have the full set home again and just in time for Father's Day. The boys worked together to make pizzas for a special dinner tonight and they did an amazing job. Happy Father's Day to John and thanks to him for helping me raise these beautiful boys.
That's it. See you next week although I'll be a couple days late because we have a small camping trip planned for the early part of the week. It's time to reconnect with nature especially after spending a couple days fighting in the crazy LA traffic.
