When I came back the next time this is what I found....... I quick took a few pictures and then laughed and laughed! She was totally passed out head straight down.
The funniest thing about it was that Grandma never stopped. She just kept right on painting and buffing.
Then when Grandma said, "Ok- I'm done." Jaleigh sat right up very sleepily. When she noticed how beautiful her nails were, she was excited right away!Sweet memories...
One last picture from that day. The kids were all playing on Grandpa's hammock and I got this picture of them. Now that I look at it I wonder, "How did they not fall??"

For my Father-In-Law who is so supportive and interested in everything we do- even from the other side of the country. Who is tireless when it comes to playing board games over and over and over and over.... with my kids, and who will do anything to keep up with his kids (even if it means getting a few strains, bumps and bruises along the way.) Who raised an especially wonderful son.

We also took in some time to go see the dunes. I never get tired of feeling the soft sand on my feet. I am always so amazed at the stark contrast of the blue water, green trees, and light tan sand.
We also took a hike for a little while. It was so pretty and we had great weather. It was right before lunch so the kids got tired fast. Even if it wasn't long, I'm still glad we went. I always love a hike. Saroya needed a little pull from Grandpa (using her "Yoda stick" ugg...) on her way back to the car...
I still think Jaleigh got the best ride...

Princess dresses, crossed ankles and chubby feet.
Can't quite reach.
Miss J's Strawberry Jam & butter sandwiches. (Check out that Huge blob o' butter!)
Ooops! I cut my hair.... (I secretly think it is the funniest thing. Why would someone do that?? :)

as tight as they can. Plus Nathan never smiles in pictures, but he is a sucker for Miss J.

When they say, "May The Force be with you" it's supposed to be a good thing, Right? Not for me. "The Force" is eating my family one person at a time. For those of you who don't know, I really don't like science fiction. In fact, it gives me a headache. Literally. I think the closest I ever got to enjoying sci-fi was the 80's hit movie "Cocoon", and that was more about the big cocoons than crazy shaped and colored people. I just don't get into that. Anyway- to catch up, Ethan's friend got him a belated birthday present on Saturday and would you take a guess at what it was? Lego Star Wars! Can you believe it? They have, of course been playing it every waking minute and that is one thing. Tonight however, it was taken to a whole new level. See, Nathan decided that it was time for the kids to see the movie...for Family Home Evening! That meant I had to be there too. From the fist note of the music, the kids faces were beaming. "The Force" quickly put me to sleep (I'm sure that was a coping mechanism) but I heard the kids at different times say things like, "Yeah- that is real because it is on Lego Star Wars too..." I knew it was bad the other day when I overheard Saroya & her friend playing house and she would say, "My name is Luke Skywalker". Jaleigh is now Princess Leia. She talked about the princess the whole movie. Where will we go from here? I am afraid to say, they have already rented the next movie in the series.
