Week 31

Sadly summer is winding down.  This is the last week of summer camp for my two younger kids and the first week of high school sports for my oldest.  Hopefully we can squeeze in a few more fun things before they're back to school for good.  They have all of next week off at home which means forced vacation for me ;0)  Wish I could really take the whole week off, but John and I will have to tag team and also rely on Tyler to help watch his brothers.  Work is just too busy for me to completely check out. 

Now for last week's pictures:

Day 211- Sunday, 7/29/12
We had a small family party to celebrate Brandon's 8th birthday.  His real birthday is on Tuesday and its near impossible to have the whole family together for a party then so we did it a little early.  He didn't mind one bit!

Day 212- Monday, 7/30/12
At work I'm spending 3-5 hrs a day in the hood taking care of these cultures.  We're expanding some hybridomas in hopes of getting the perfect monoclonal.  Cool stuff, but a lot of work which doesn't leave time for much else.

Day 213- Tuesday, 7/31/12
Happy Birthday Brandon!  I took the day off from my cultures and surprised him with a day at home.  He was thrilled and had a pretty great day starting with donuts, squeezing in a few more presents, and ending with ice-cream just before Tyler and I ran off to sports physical night. 

Day 214- Wednesday, 8/1/12
Seriously?  Not August already!  I wouldn't mind going back to June and prolonging the summer.  Tyler and Bella were happy to help with my monthly marker.

Day 215- Thursday, 8/2/12
We've been watching a lot of Olympics.  It's fun to see the games, but I wish some of the more popular events weren't on so late.  Go USA!

Day 216- Friday, 8/3/12
Justin made this cute little porcupine at camp today.  He's had a good summer there and is making lots of new friends.  He even told me the other day that he wished I didn't pick him up so early--usually its why are you so late?

Day 217- Saturday, 8/4/12
We had a Groupon for dinner and drinks at the Graduate in Davis which was a favorite place of ours when we were dating so John and I had Grad Burgers and Tahiti Tea tonight.  Yum!  It was nice to get away.

That's all folks!
Thanks for stopping by and see you next week.



  1. That's great that you got to take off work on your son's birthday to surprise him! I bet that made him feel special :-) Love the chalkboard sign photo to mark the new month!

  2. The cake and birthday look fun! Sharks are his thing, huh? Fun! We are loving the Olympics at our house too! Always love your month makers! Have a good week!

  3. What a cool cake you made, love the sharks and your Groupon dinner looks yummy. I like the glasses they have. I must be hungry, I'm drawn to food pictures today!
