Crazy Art Lesson!

So... I don't have a picture to show, but yesterday after swimming all morning, washing the car, Sophie taking a 40 minute nap, I had art lesson at my house.  I had three art students under 11, and one that is a mommy and brought her 2 year old to play with the sitter while we drew.
The baby sitter did not show.
We had toys, pencils, paper, laughing, screaming, no crying (thanks to God's grace and mercy), and I think we all had a really good time.
I will call and verify my sitter for next week, I must try to prevent that from happening again!

My Birthday, and a Trip to Vegas

Dustan took me out for my 32nd birthday!  He left it as a surprise until the babysitter showed up to watch the girls at 10:00 on Saturday morning.  We drove to Greenville where he had to pick up a van for work, needless to say I was sitting there thinking, hum... I wonder where this "birthday" surprise will go from here, but after some issues with the rental company, he decided to drop what his plans had entailed, and make it up as we went along.  So we drove to the "big city" and had a steak lunch.  He says I am always happier after I eat steak.  It is probably true. From there we went to shenanigans and played a fun game of black light mini golf (a first for both of us).  We both were ready to get back to the girls, and have them help us celebrate the rest of the day.  
When we got home Dustan and Sophie made a cake while I went by myself and bought some much needed luggage for Dustan big trip to Vegas today.  We had hamburger helper, and a Sophie decorated cake for dinner.  It was wonderful.
Dustan left for Las Vegas at about 11:00 yesterday, while the girls and I went to church.  He and his staff drove all through the night , and arrived at the Hoover Dam at 6:30 this morning, just in time to see the sun rise.  It is a happy looking crew considering they just spent about 19 hours in a van together.
