Week 30

Awww summer!  I'm so glad things have slowed a bit, but here we are looking at the last day in July already.  It's hard to believe.  Today is Brandon's birthday, and I'm taking the day off from work to get some things done around the house and spend some time with my kids.  It feels good to be able to do that, and Brandon is thrilled.  He really didn't want to go to camp on his birthday.  Here's hoping today is a fun day for all.

Enjoy last week's pictures:

Day 204- Sunday, 7/22/12
It's the last day of swim champs and the last day of swimming for the season.  Justin is super excited.  He's had an interesting year.  He enjoyed it more than last year, but was plagued by DQ's which is frustrating.  We'll have to work on his form for next year.

Day 205- Monday, 7/23/12
One of the best parts of getting an early start to the day is being able to see the sunrise.  We had a thunder storm roll through very early this morning so when the sun finally came up it didn't disappoint.  It also helps to work on the 5th floor of a building that over looks campus.  Good morning UC Davis!

Day 206- Tuesday, 7/24/12
The boys had karate testing last week which mean promotions this week.  Brandon just earned the last strip on his white belt and next time will be testing for a green belt.  Justin moves on to review for his black belt!

Day 207- Wednesday, 7/25/12
We're at the California State Fair enjoying some of the yummy fried food.  These things are bigger than Justin and I think his eyes are bigger than his stomach.  Good thing we're all sharing.

Day 208- Thursday, 7/26/12
I'm hanging out here after work in Davis for drinks with the lab to celebrate a major accomplishment that has been 9 months in the making and will mean more funding for years to come.  It so nice when after many failed attempts things finally work out.  Totally worth celebrating.

Day 209- Friday, 7/27/12
Tyler's been home alone all week taking a break.  His job and sports have ended for now so he's enjoying some time alone in a quiet house to chill before water polo "hell week" starts August 6th.  Bella is happy she's not the only one home all day and loves the extra attention.

Day 210- Saturday, 7/28/12
Brandon is helping me bake a cake for his small family party tomorrow.  His birthday is on a Tuesday so we'll do most our celebrating Sunday since we have limited time during the week.  He loves to help in the kitchen and I love to have him.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.
