absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?  we've been busy! 

Van turned 1 last month and we mostly did nothing but he got a balloon and a giant ball and was happy as a clam. 

A friend got married and we went to San Francisco and back in one weekend with all of the kids in tow. Whirlwind and crazy though it was, it still completely rocked to have Craig around for two whole days in a row! 

I turned 31. blah.  Hannah came and made the day wonderful by bringing over flowers, presents, chocolate cake, magazines and a movie after work. It was perfect. 

We got a couple of extra kids on Wednesday (boys the same ages as my two oldest) and they boarded a plane home an hour ago. 

we saw an IMAX 3D movie
went to round table pizza (heaven)
played laser tag in the park
went to the beach
swam in the pool many times
played hours and hours of video games
cast spells and defeated sith (not at the same time, of course)

now i'm thinking about preparing easter dinner. hopefully i'll get beyond the "thinking about" part before our guests arrive... :)
