In which the camera breaks

I attended a wedding this weekend. The wedding of my once beloved cousin who is a few years older than me. Why once beloved? Well she is still loved, but I haven't seen her in about....5 years. Recently connected with her again on Facebook and was invited to the wedding.

I actually had a good time. I wasn't really expecting to. See my family is weird. They don't talk to me. Why? No idea. I was 15 when my mom moved to South Carolina and once she left they kind of slowly stopped calling my sister and I. So I honestly say I don't put much effort into the relationships. Maybe I'm just as bad as they are.

But I took my camera and got a few good shots. Then the thing breaks. Won't turn on at all. And I know its not the battery. So I'm in the market. Brian just wants to try a battery replacement, but I want new! Of course I probably won't once I look at the prices of new ;)

Monday...I mean Tuesday is here

This weekend was fun and full! Saturday I had to work from 9:30-5pm. Incase you didn't know I work part time at my mother-in-laws quilt shop. I really enjoy working there, but to be honest its hard to work the weekends.

Sunday I took the kids to an Oakland A's game. It was the first MLB game for William, and I think the 3rd for the girls. They actually lasted the whole game! It helped that we were up in the shade and away from crowds so the kids could actually act like kids. Unfortunaley Brian had to work this day. But it made up for two days he had off during the week. So I can't complain too much.

Monday was a great family BBQ with my parents, and sister and her hubby. We had good food, great conversation, and loads of fun in the pool. I also have some great pictures of a water pyramyid we did, but those are on my dad's camera so we will have to wait!

Back in the swing of things

The kids have now been in school for a week and a half. The first week was bliss. Then the homework started. Wow! I don't remember having hours of homework at the age of 10, and boy is my Julia hating it! Usually we have at least 15 minutes of crying and freaking out. Of course anyone else is better to help her, for some reason we are like oil and vinegar in some cases.

Victoria isn't too bad, she has a lot more than last year, but she isn't overwhelmed yet.

And little William just loves that he has homework. Oh just way love...just wait!
