going ons

*My sister called me today. Twice in one week! It made my day. We talked about traveling around Europe and our future visit to see her family in Germany. So many places to visit! **My kids started swim lessons on Tuesday. Alicia whined all the way there about taking time away from homework and reading. I mean seriously! She now she looks forward to it. Smiles the entire time. I meant to take my camera today and totally forgot. ***We have had Ben home for dinner every night this week. The kids stick pretty close to him once he walks in the door. After a month of him being gone when they wake up and asleep when he comes home it had been nice. ****I didn't run for 9 days last week. Sunday I had a migraine the likes I haven't had for 6 1/2 years. So I went back to running this week. My body feels good when I excercise. I just hate running in the rain and wind. It was a treat to run this week in the sun.

I am so glad that this amazing weather happened after tax season. Ben took us to Lincoln City where we all enjoyed time together and SUN.
Our favorite park anywhere is in Lincoln City on the lake. It is an old, wooden, HUGE playground so the kids get Ben to play hide and seek tag. Always good fun there.
Ethan convinced Ben to buy a kite at Costco for him but Ben had a lot more fun with it.
Tomorrow Ben is making hamburgers!
