9 Days Off The Choo-choo Train

My girls and I got our "guy", for nine whole days! This hasn't happened in quite some time. Being the wife of a railroader definitely has it's downfalls and not seeing him is the biggest one.
We took advantage of every minute!

Started off with...

Enchanted Forest

The girls shared a few thrills and sno-cones with daddy.

Jasmynn loved the "log ride".
And little Kaia is always up for some sugar!

Surprise Graduation Party
Our friend Mark graduated from the electrician program. Friends and family celebrated his accomplishment and if you know Mark at all....he was very embarrassed.

We headed off to Lincoln city and couldn't ask for a better day . The weather was perfect! Do you notice I emphasized day. That's because I ended up taking Jasmynn to the E.R. in the middle of the night. Scary!!! Poor Jasmynn suffers from Asthma and something at the beach triggered an attack. She ended up with three breathing treatments and a couple doses of steroids.


This was Kaia's first trip to the zoo. Awful!!!
I was a big dummy suggesting to go on Two Dollar Tuesday. We waited about 2 1/2 hours to get into the gates after being directed to get back on the freeway to be shuttled, then waiting an hour in line to get on the bus.
We had totally hyped up Kaia about seeing "monkeys". She loves monkey and she was so excited. We were dissapppointed...four monkeys, four stinkin monkeys doing nothing! It was so hot, that hardly any animals were out.
Our dissappointment didn't end there. We were in line for an hour to get on the "zoo train", with another hour and a half to wait and then we are informed that due to technical problems the train would be shut down and that we could get a refund. Our luck!
Never again...we are more than willing to pay full price.

This was another first for Kaia. Overall, it went well for being out of her comfort zone. She definitely let us know when she was tired. We tried everything, but no matter what we tried we just couldn't get her to take any naps.
Jasmynn had a blast playing in the water. We were little fishes due to the weather.!!!

Sisters Engagement Party sister has found her soul mate! Friends and family celebrated their engagement at Kathken Vinyards!
My sister Loreena in the middle (the fiance) and my other sister Linnea.
My sister and I did not plan wearing white dresses. I guess we were both feeling innocent and pure:)
(Thank you Liz for watching the girls!)

I'm a huge fan of "So You Think You Can Dance"

I was hoping and America agreed,

"America's Favorite Dancer," is......JOSHUA!
