06.23.11 thursday... I took the girls with me over to Jodie's for a meeting. Jen and my mom came too. Darric took Max to play basketball after he got a haircut. We picked up Capriotti's/Sonic on or way home.
06.24.11 friday... We left the house and headed out to Mt Charleston around 9-ish. We did the Mary Jane Falls hike. It was uphill all the way to the falls. Switchbacks all the way up. The falls were very pretty. And there was a dome of snow still left that the water was going through. We headed back down and i expected it to be a breeze since it was all downhill. Nope. I wasn't out of breath but we had to really watch our step. Madi took a stumble. Ended up on her back with her feet in the air. ?? She had a scratched up knee and palm. She wanted to be done. The weather was very nice and it smelled so good up there. When we got off the hill, we stopped at Baja Fresh for some lunch. Came home to clean up and rest, then went and dropped the kids off with Grandma Carter. All of the grandkids were coming over for a sleepover. We went and met Dani and Bill out at Town Square for dinner at the Yard House. We were there for a couple hours. Food was good as usual.
06.25.11 saturday... I got up and cleaned up the house. It was a disaster. Ran to Target for my rx and tissue paper. Swung by to get the kids and rushed to Coda's Toy Story birthday party. We were late and I hate being late. It was such a cute little party. The kids had a blast playing in the ball pit. I can't believe Coda's 3 already. That evening Darric went to play poker at Brian's house and the kids and I ordered pizza and watched some movies. (Enchanted and Despicable Me)
06.26.11 sunday... Darric declared today "no computer or tv day". So him and Max went to get stuff to BBQ and then we had a paper airplane competition. First, Max was my partner and Madi was her dad's. Then we switched. I was the losing team and Darric's team won both times. I even tried cheating by looking on the internet on my phone, but I couldn't tell what the instructions were saying to do. We ran to get some ice-cream and that evening, the "no computer or tv day" was lifted. We watched AFV and I got online so I could write out my grocery list.
06.13.11 monday went to library and signed up for reading program. picked up mcdonalds for the kids and port of subs for me (got my sandwich free)
06.14.11 tuesday jodie and kids came over to make recycled crayons. jen and her kids came over for a little while. kenzie made rice krispies on sticks dipped in chocolate, with sprinkles.
06.15.11 wednesday madi had her dress rehearsal at artemus tonight. the whole family watched food inc together. kenzie is now vegetarian.
06.16.11 thursday went and picked up my fourth of july subway art at costco and then stopped at purple penguin on the way home. mmm.
06.17.11 friday went over to the sprinkler park. madi got a bloody nose, luckily i had kleenex in our bag. kenzie sat and sweated with me while the other two got wet and then played at the park. we left to get slurpees (and a diet coke for me) then ran over to little caesars. kenzie went in and waited about 10 minutes for our pizza to be ready.
06.18.11 saturday darric had to go run a call. which had him coming home just after the rest of us left for madi's dance recital. he was still able to get there before it started. grandma and grandpa carter came to watch too. madi's class did a dance to popular, it was pretty cute. and madi did an awesome back handspring. the girls and i picked up jimmy johns on the way home.
06.19.11 sunday the family went to look around REI and then sports authority. we ended up getting a new tent that will more than comfortably fit the whole family. and it was on sale! when we got home, i ran to albertsons for a couple things. when i returned, darric asked me to take him to get checked out by a doctor. he had numbness in his left arm and a little in his face. and he wanted to make sure everything was alright. we went over to the quick care and they told us to go right over to the emergency room at st rose. we got checked in and just a couple minutes later, he went back and had blood drawn, an ekg and cat scan. then we waited for the results. the cat scan didn't show anything bad. the doctor recommended an MRI and gave darric the number for a doctor. after hanging out in the emergency room (and memorizing all of the other patients' names) for about 3 hours, we headed home. i picked up some bayer for darric. we put up our new tent in the living room and then watched america's funniest videos together. probably not the way darric had planned on spending father's day this year. (we're so glad he's feeling alright this evening)
