Despite us all (except Abby) still not over our colds, we had a pretty busy week this week.
After late Monday and Tuesday nights at work this week, Greg was ready to take it a bit easier on Wednesday. He was getting ready to leave when surprise, he was offered tickets to the Real Salt Lake soccer game in a suite that night. Of all the fun work-perks that Greg gets the soccer one is one of his favorites because not only are the seats great they come with a room filled with food to enjoy as well. Alex had never been to one of these events (and any event but this would require too much calmness from him) so Greg was excited to get the chance to take the whole family.
The night was a really weird one for spring in Utah with wind and rain and even some snow. The upside of all that was that it kept lots of people at home including whoever we were going to share the suite with so we got the whole space all to ourselves. The kids had fun stuffing their faces with food and occasionally watching the game.
Alex had his last day of preschool this week which was celebrated with a class program (Alex was very shy but did manage to handle standing on the stage... after some convincing) as well as an end-of-year party at The Bounce House.
Greg and Debbie got to trade date-nights with Gen to go to a Kristin Chenoweth performance at BYU. It was a fun and engaging evening even though Greg didn't know who she was. Debbie was disappointed that she couldn't join in the sing along parts because of her cold.
As part of our prep for our new house Debbie want on a shopping spree to Ikea. Greg wouldn't have the stamina for a trip like that so Debbie took Greg's sister and they picked lots and lots and lots of boxes out. The boxes will all get delivered next week cause there is no way we are hauling this all back in our cars!
That left Greg to watch the kids which meant ANOTHER trip to the bounce house and a quick grocery trip. In this picture, Greg forgot to get a cookie for his nephew who then insistently reminded him with squeaks that although he is the pickiest eater on earth, he does consider cookies to be one of the 5 foods he will eat, They had a fun time together.
With sickness and house preparations and extra Alex sensitivity it's been another tough week but lots of fun/interesting moments as well.
