Lots of BUSY

We had a crazy week this last week and a crazy weekend too! Mostly whats been keeping us busy this last week is potty training still. Sam has gotten good enough to go out in public, we've taken him to a restaurant, the store a few times, bowling, grandparents house, and church. The only place he had an accident was church. Lovely. At least it was at the very end right? I don't know if that makes it better, but it was our fault. I should have known that he wouldn't tell the nursery leader he had to go, I should have known he wouldn't want to quit playing, I should have just gone in there and made him go. Darn. We'll be better next week! Otherwise we're really happy to not be changing any diapers for him! And we're really excited to be almost done with this whole horrible process. :) I think there has to be a better way to potty train, like really.

We also went out to dinner with Dave's family on Wednesday for Bethany's birthday. We went to Hunan Gardens because Bethany loves chinese food--mostly she loves to use chopsticks. :) Then on Saturday we went bowling, we told Bethany it was for her birthday but really it was for Dave's work. They had planned a work bowling thing and told him it was required optional. Whatever that means. We assumed it meant that you needed to be there unless you had a valid reason not to be. We didn't, plus we like bowling so we went. BUT I'm really wishing we had taken my mother in law up on leaving some of the kids home. We thought, oh they'll just have such a good time, it'll be fun! It was not fun. Sam was horrid. He wanted to run crazy (duh, should've seen that coming), he didn't want to take turns, he didn't want ANY help AT ALL (that means carrying a 7 lb ball around and throwing it down the lane) and would scream constantly. Kimball was fine but we had to keep passing him from person to person, which I should have thought about beforehand. I'm not very smart if you aren't picking up on this. BUT the worst part of the whole thing?! The machine was wonky and it wouldn't add up your score right and would give you extra turns and such, but TWICE David stole me throws, so he got one of my 9 pin shots AND my ONLY strike of the day! So he ended up with MY score, and I ended up with the score he should've got. Poo. So he sort of beat me, but only because I helped him unintentionally. He got 120, and I got 101. But that should be switched. So you know.

Saturday night was spent getting food and making a cake for Bethany's birthday. And then Sunday was so exciting and fun (and tiring!) because Bethany turned 8 and therefore was baptized! I will post more on that later, its worthy of its own post right?

3 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:

hahah I can just imagine my nephews sam's age at the bowling alley! There is NO way they would be willing to take turns throwing a heavy ball and knocking things over! Ha! Well now I know never to try it :)

Wow, that is a busy weekend. You know what we have all been there when we take our kids to something but then looking back on it you think to yourself "what was i thinking?". Can't wait to see pics.

I don't know why I never clicked on your profile before! I love your family blog. I have come to see you as a friend even though we haven't really met in person. It is nice to see what is going on with your family. I just wanted to thank you for your comment this morning. I'm just having such a crappy day and it made me cry. It was so sweet and I just appreciated it more than you know. Thanks for being such a good long distance friend. I think you are awesome! :)
