We had a little lesson in hiccups yesterday. We had to run to the kids pediatrician's office to pick up some paperwork. I had explained to the kids that we were just going to quick run in and pick something up so I needed to have good listeners and we needed to be quiet. There were a lot of questions like will we see the doctor, will we get shots, will we have to stand on that thing that measures us ....... after a bit it was clear that we were just quick picking something up at the front desk. I again reiterated that I needed quiet kids and good listeners. As we pull up to the office Emma begins to hiccup. The kids start to get out of the van and Emma looks at me with the most horrified look on her face. I asked her what was wrong and she said, "Mommy, I think they will come with me. I don't know how to leave them in the car." She knew that hiccups can get noisy and I had asked for quite kids. You have to love the heart. We had a lesson on hiccups and that sometimes we just can't help it when we make noises and if they are really loud we can just say excuse me. These little conversations and life lessons are one of the many things I love about being a mommy!

Emma's prayer tonight was "Dear God, could you get me some sun and some friends too!" Emma knows that if it is sunny there is a good chance we get to go to Wild Water West. Today non of her friends were there so she was praying that some would join her tomorrow if she gets some sun. She's such a little social bug!

The girls set up a lemonade stand this weekend. They were busy
making cookies and lemonade on Saturday morning and then went to work after their naps. I think it had to be the highlight of their
weekend. They had a busy little lemonade stand. Oh all the

Eric has had his office at the Technology Incubator the last 31/2 years. The Incubator is a business office for start up companies to help them get their feet off the ground. It has been a great place for Eric's company to grow. His time there is now up so we were out visiting Eric's new office building. It is in the process of being built. The girls thought it was great to get to wear the hard hats in the construction zone!

This weekend I got together with my college roommates. We have made it a yearly tradition. We had a blast just hanging out, catching up on life, reminiscing about the good old days, eating a lot and of course we did a lot of laughing too. You can tell we are getting older and are all moms now .... we were pretty content just to sit around and chat! We have 12 kids between the 6 of us with a couple more on the way!! Thanks for your friendship, the fun, the laughs and a great weekend gals!!
