hi dad, It's been a long time again, we know, but boy have we been busy! Last time we chatted we were kind of down in the dumps but mom has been keeping us going nonstop..After a busy week at work mom took us to visit great grandma and great grandpa in Huntington beach.
We started off the trip by going to the beach and hanging out with auntie Kimmie, Brennan and Faith. It was very crowded because it was Father's day...what better way to keep us busy but to take us to our favorite place!(mom's too of course) Uncle Joel had to work so it was just the moms and the kids! We played and played..Gunnar loved waiting for the waves to knock him down, then rolled on the ground while waves were going over his head. He was literally getting toppled over and over.He would recover jump up and head out for more....Guess who slept the best that night?
Jessica had a nice time letting the waves come up to her toes and laughing at her brother getting"beat up" by the waves..But most of all she loved playing in the sand with Brennan and Faith.
Dad, needless to say if we can keep making regular trips to the beach with mom, everything else will be tolerable. We can tolerate eachother and mom can tolerate us..She LOVES the beach. We talk about all the time how you told us when you get home we're going camping there as long as we want. Just a little "reminder"!
After the beach we took ourselves over to Great Grandma's...We're pretty sure they might never be the same.
They have a pretty house with lots of pretty things. They also have a pretty front yard and a pretty backyard that they work very hard on. We tried to be on our best behavior and didn't do too bad of a job. Mom said though, if we had stayed much longer than we did, things wouldn't have stayed "pretty" for long. We think it had something to do with mom saying great grandma and great grandpa are "fragile" and they like things quiet. Our little "hurricane" brought them plenty of excitement for a while.
We ate out at a couple restaurants. Mom took us to her second favorite place, South Coast Plaza! Lucky for you, we were with her, and Gunnar wasn't in the "shopping" mood. You can thank us later! We rode the merry go round about 10 times and had about 10 snacks...Great Grandma said she never saw so much eating!! We reminded her 3 and 5 year olds eat more and more often than 88 year olds!!
That night we were exhausted but mom still took us to see Toy Story 3. Great movie..a little traumatic near the end but we made it through.
Got up and left everything in it's place,b..a..r..e..l..y!
Next stop?? Where else? The beach in San Diego...Nope, can't get enough. We got home eventually and got back to somewhat of a normal routine..We finished our swimming lessons and mom let us play hookey from preschool the rest of the week..AHHH the life!
Mom's still going to the gym..She's working out with someone who she says makes her feel like she's going to throw up for a couple of days. Doesn't sound fun to us but she says she loves it..oh well, whatever she needs to get along without you is fine with us..She's holding up o.k. She's tired but we don't know if she would know what to do if she wasn't..She loves talking to you on the phone and we know she misses you because she talks about you all the time. We miss you too. We're getting more used to you being gone except when Jess hears a sad song we have to turn it off and when Gunnar see's another dad he wants to know when you're coming home.
We love you dad, and we hope "Assghanistan" is treating you well....
