Mom and Dad to the rescue!!!

This morning I took my dogs (Sadie 120 lb Great Dane and Zoey 15 lb Dashund) on a walk the long way through the desert to take my Dad the Mohave Daily News and the Las Vegas Review Journal. I put the newspapers, my keys and a Gatorade in a plactic sack, I thought about using my fanny pack, but decided not to. I was almost to their house and my Gatorade feel out of a hole in the bottom of the bag... I looked in the bag and my keys, GONE! Thank goodness my neighbor had a key to my house. Took the dogs home and me, Mom and Dad combed the desert. We found my keys! CRAZY!!! Mom and Dad took me for a Coke and a donut and said they wanted to go on a walk in the desert today anyway :) I love them, I am so lucky to have them down here!

Carson's 8th Birthday Party & 4th of July

Celebrate!... This year Carson had a Tony Hawk party. For 2 years now we've held Carson's "friend" party on the 4th of July. I guess you could call it "killing 2 birds with 1 stone", we have the best view in town for the fireworks. This year we had about 25 people. Great food, great friends, and great fun :)

Craft table: The kids (and me) made skateboard necklaces. I ordered paintable/markerable (that's not a word, but that's what we did to them) skateboards fron Oriental Trading Company, all colored beads, and string. They were cute cool!

The kids were in the pool from 5:00 pm till I'm gonna guess ~11:00 pm. Carson's Aunt Heidi and
Aunt Velvet gave him the Floating Castle for his birthday... It was the hit of the patry!
