Birthday, TV and Trains...

It's been a full weekend already and I'm hoping to rest and maybe scrap on Sunday. Speaking of which I still need to take pictures of my pages that I did at the crop last week - ugh! I will get them posted (eventually).

So here's a run down on what's been going on this weekend. Ours started on Thursday which was Tyler's 8th birthday. Yes I said 8! I can't believe he is getting so big. He officially does not have to use a car seat now either. I have mixed emotions about that. To celebrate we took him and his friend Caitlin to the Kitsap fair. It runs every year at the same time as his birthday. Makes it kind of convenient for us. No big parties or anything. He just picks a friend and we pay their way into the fair and for the rides. We got them all day passes for the rides and they had a blast. Kaylie even wanted to ride them and she was tall enough for most so we got her an all day pass too. Bonus - kids day was Thursday so the kids got in free! You can check out the birthday pics here. They are the first 85 pics (yes I said 85). I know a little overboard but with them I have to take that many to get maybe 10 good ones! After the fair we came back to the house with Caitlin and her mom and dad, Brent and Cindy, who happen to be good friends of ours. We had pizza and then some cake. And I just realized while typing this that I bought ice cream to go with the cake but totally forgot to serve it! Hahaha - leave it to me!

Friday was kind of mellow. We hung out at home and I had to work. Pete washed his truck of course and then headed to Walmart to get a wall mount for the new TV we bought (well new to us). We got a 42 inch flat screen plasma from Brent and Cindy. It's in perfect condition and they were really generous with everything. They even came over that night and helped hook it all up in our room. Thanks guys! I really like it and so does Pete. I'll have to take some pictures of that and post them too.

Today was the open house for Tacoma Rail so we went to that. We try to go every year. Tyler really enjoys it and this year Kaylie did too. She is so into trains now like her dad and brother it's funny. They have a lot of fun stuff there for kids. Clowns that make animal balloons, rides on the train, model railroads, face painting and you can tour a real engine. We had a great day. Here are the pictures from our outing. I had my little camera today and I'm not happy with a lot of these but at least I got some pictures.

So that's about it and I'm exhausted. I was going to scrap today when we got home but I was just too tired. I thought I should update this first anyway or it would get neglected again. I'm really trying to make an effort to keep this current. So far, pretty good....
