Monday: Went to the beach with my sister-in-law and her kids(aka: my nephews).
I have alot of nephews, but these are my J3 nephews(Jagger, Judson, and Jack).
The weather was great and the kids had a great time, which translate into us moms having a great time too.
Building a sand castle
Ray and Jagger
We call those two, "the twins".
They are 16 days apart and if I wasn't there when Ray was born,
I would swear that those two were twins separated at birth.
Wednesay: Lunch at our friend's house.
It was so good to spend some time with a good friend.
Ray and her sweet friend, Emmalyn, dressin' up.
All the kiddos on the couch.
I think Emmalyn looked unhappy because she was trying to watch a movie and we were interruping her.
That girl is a card!
The boys. Kellen and Jude.
Thursday: Around noon today I was writing my to-do list of the things I need to get done before I leave on Saturday(oh yeah. I'm leaving on Saturday. Forgot to say that earlier.)
Anyway, two of the things on my list were, 1. get new money, and 2. get some papers notarized.
As I was writing my list it hit me that tomorrow is good Friday. Therefore, no one will be open to notarize papers, and no credit unions will be open to withdrawl/trade money.
I'll keep it short and say that God is good and I was able to get all the good bills I need AND get my papers notarized.
One of the traditions around the Carlin house is "Family Night". For family night we either pop popcorn(on the stove, all old-timey like) and watch a movie. Fridays when Josh isn't working at night is our usual time to have family night. But since tomorrow we are having an Extended Family Night, we had our little family night tonight.
Josh, Luke and Ray
Kellen was already in bed by the time I took the picture. It is hard to believe that our family will have grown by THREE the next time we have a family night. I can't totally wrap my mind around that yet. I'm not quite sure what Luke or Ray is doing in this picture, but anyway....
So. That's a little bit of what we've been up to this week.
I'll post more about my traveling details tomorrow.
