Here come the pictures!
Friday started with my friend Christi's birthday. Christi is the one of the far left and I am the one on the far right. We thought it would be best to put the whitest people on the sides to kind of round everything out!
Christi and I
My new friends Amanda and Alicia. They were really sweet. Amanda is some kind of genius scientist and Alicia is an uber-talented choir instructor. Such amazing people! Our conversation kinda went like this:
Amanda: "Blah Blah Blah I'm an awesome research biologist."
Alicia: "Blah Blah Blah I'm an awesome choir teacher at multiple schools."
Christi: "Blah Blah Blah I'm an awesome writer and have a great eye for design."
Danny: ".... I can sew?"
Speaking of sewing, I was able to make a couple projects this weekend, one of which was gift for my grandparents.
They love Scrabble, so when I came across this fabric, I knew I had to buy it for them. I just didn't know what I was going to make with it. Then it dawned on me: DUH! Grandpa LOVES to cook. So potholders it is. I'll get a tutorial set up soon to share with you, you know, just in case you don't want to follow one of the other thousand potholder tutorials online.
Later Friday night, Miss Maze learned to play the drums.
She also learned to pull herself up to standing, but she can't get down. She won't let go and fall on her butt so instead she just stands there and cries, waiting for someone to come to her rescue.
Sunday was Brent's first Father's Day. He spent the morning beating both Modern Warfare 3 and Lego Harry Potter on the xBox. How about THAT for a perfect Father's Day?! So, while he sat around, Maze and I went with my mom to see her dad in Casa Grande, which is about an hour drive from our house.
He's the one who got the potholders.
Then, to round out the day, we headed back to the valley, picked up Brent and BBQ'd at my dad's parents' house. It was perfect. The pool was warm, the food was tasty and none of us got sunburned! SCORE!
So good. I love weekends filled with family and friends. Don't you?
