I am not sure what we are going to do for our third week of vacation. If we stay home the kids just want to play video games all day so we have to think of something fun to go do. Something reasonable but fun. Hmmmmm. Time to start searching online for local activities. (Local as in the L.A. area. Nothing is actually IN Hemet!)

Jason's dad had quadruple bypass surgery a week ago. Jason and I went up for the surgery and spent a couple of nights with his mom. Things went well and Jason's dad went home just four days later. Jason, Nathanael, and Matthew returned to help his parents once he got out of the hospital. They have been gone for five days and are returning home tomorrow. I can't wait! I have missed them so much, even though Nathanael doesn't want to come home. He is loving hanging out at his grandparents' house.
Jonathan, Grace and I have been having fun of our own. We went swimming at a friend's house, went to my cousin's birthday party in Riverside, had a fun lunch with my aunt, and spent an entire afternoon and evening at a graduation and birthday pool party. Today their friends came over to play and swim at our house. Each night Jonathan and Grace have fallen asleep as soon as their heads have hit the pillow and they stay asleep an hour past when they usually get up. I guess I have been good at wearing them, and me, out! Oh, and I have a hard time sleeping all the time but especially when Jason is gone. The many earthquakes we have had this week haven't helped that particular problem. Tonight's was a 5.7 that continued rolling for a really long time.
Tomorrow the free summer movies begin....yeah! Our town, and many others, show kids movies two mornings a week in air conditioned movie theaters for free. One of our favorite things to do on 100 degree days. tomorrow's movie.....Madagascar 2. Then in the afternoon the little ones start swimming lessons. Think I can get them worn out again? I am certainly going to try! Then Jason and the other boys should be home and we will go out to dinner together and catch up on a week of small talk. Hooray!

Jonathan decorated this bag to honor Jason's grandma at the relay for life. He even wrote her name on it all by himself (okay, I told him the letters but he wrote them himself.) My phone will only let me add one picture per post so I will do a seperate one showing the luminaries all lit up.
Oh, to give you an idea of how chilly it got, a little bit after we got home, it decided to HAIL! Brr!
