Where? Oh, Where Has That Jana Gone?

Oh, Where? Oh, Where Can She Be?

Wowsers! Another week has come and gone in the crazy-August-Birthday-month household. Whew! Thanks for putting up with my absence and sporadic posting. This post will be a quick one, but I wanted to let you know what I have been up to . . .

Bowling for Owen's Birthday "Dinner" Out

Celebrating Maryn's Birthday - Here she is opening presents in the morning.
For her "Friend" party, she decided that she wanted to have a Swimming Party at the Rec. Center. Mmmmmm. Pizza! (I think this is the 20th time we've eaten pizza this week!)
Friday after school we drove to the southern part of Utah to St. George for a little getaway. Kevin had a speaking engagement, so we decided to make a family trip out of it and celebrate Jensyn's birthday.
Here she is on her birthday morning opening her presents in the hotel.

Kevin's parents are serving an LDS mission in St. George. This was the first chance we've had to visit them. Grandma & Grampa invited us over for Gramma's famous Sourdough pancakes. MMMmmmmmm!
Jensyn couldn't have asked for a better birthday breakfast! :D
Afterwards, we were off to the local Community Center for more swimming then lunch.
We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping and then went out to dinner to our favorite restaurant in St. George (Jensyn's choice), The Pasta Factory. :D
That night, Gramma and Grampa had us back over to their house to celebrate the kids' birthdays with a cake. I love this picture of all three of them blowing out the candles together. :D

We packed up Sunday morning, made the drive home, rested for an hour and then went to my niece's birthday party.

It was a fun week, but an EXHAUSTING one! :D We still have Jensyn's "friend" party to do. But she has decided she wants to take her friends to a movie, so it shouldn't be too stressful. Whew!
I have soooo many scrap projects to post, but instead of doing them all at once I will do them in groups, starting tomorrow. I'll leave you tonight with my layout for Sketch This #64. See you then!
