june 8th through the 14th
on tuesday we went to the sprinkler park and got snow cones. at 2:00 that afternoon, kenzie and madi went to the open gym at silverado.
wednesday morning, kenzie had a private practice with ruben at 9:30.
thursday, madi had an ortho appointment at 1:50. (i'm pretty sure bryan came and hung out at our house for awhile because i remember him going to the appointment with us)
june 15th through the 21st
swimming and pizza at grandma becky's on monday. found two little birds on our front porch when we got home. kenzie scared one off and tried to keep the other as a pet, but we had her let it go (it was pretty cute hopping over to the neighbor's yard). i thought the birds had fallen from the nest up in our tree, so i had darric bring his big ladder home. but, when he climbed up there, he saw there were two other birds in the nest and they were a different kind.
kenzie and madi went to the open gym at silverado again. that evening, max went to try rock climbing at the refuge.
wednesday, kenzie had a private practice with ruben at 1:30. then i dropped her back off there at 4:00 to do the two hour open gym. ruben's invited a bunch of girls to come and play. most of them are pretty good, so kenzie really enjoys going. except when her back hurts, which is usually towards the end of the open gym. darric and i go together to pick her up and watch for about an hour. she went again on thursday too.
kenzie's been on a cooking kick again. she made a chocolate bundt cake, some monkey bread and rolls. unfortunately, she didn't use a recipe for the rolls and they were very rock like when they came out of the oven.
friday, max and i went to hobby lobby and star nursery for father's day/birthday gifts.
we went through our camping stuff to see what we might need and i had madi paint the tips of our marshmallow roasters so we would each have our own color.
june 22nd through the 28th
monday, kenzie had a private practice with ruben at 9:45. on tuesday she went to another open gym from 4-6pm..
max and madi got to try the new jolly rancher slushes on one of our sonic runs.
wednesday, jayce came over and we marked some items off our summer to-do list. darric went to reno for the day and kenzie had open gym from 4-6. around 10:00 that evening, max woke me up from a dead sleep to show me he pulled his first big tooth out (dr manny had pulled one out already, but that doesn't really count)
saturday morning, the boys got up and changed the oil in darric's truck. it was the first time max got to help his dad with it. usually we just take it in and get it done.
after i got ready, the three of us went back to origins to let max climb. he just stuck to bouldering this time. he was able to do a yellow route that he couldn't do last weekend. but then darric had him try a harder one and he got a bit frustrated that he couldn't figure out how to get up it so easily. next, we went over to dicks and darric and i got some new hiking shoes. they didn't really have any for kids, so we went out to bass pro shops. the bertrands happened to be close by so they came and joined us for awhile. max ended up getting some camouflage hiking boots and darric and i each got a t-shirt. that evening, we all went to the bertrand's to discuss camp food. we ordered dinner from some chinese restaurant too. darric and i ordered pad thai. i was very excited about it.
on sunday, darric took max climbing again. this time he signed him up for a membership. that afternoon i filled a bunch of water balloons and me, darric and max had a water fight in the backyard. it was pretty much me and max against darric. we were all soaked by the time we ran out of a bucket and a half of balloons. after changing into some dry clothes, darric and max ran to albertsons and got some stuff for us to bbq for dinner.
