An Awesome Weekend!



Arlene and Paula actually arrived last Wednesday to come visit us. Paula offered to cook up a storm and she didn't disappoint! Arlene did crossword puzzles and cross stitch (saying she was a "cross" old lady) and a lot of the clean up. She also made some delicious rolls! Laura and Ben came down on Friday and we had two beautiful spring-like days of 70 degree weather where we could throw open the doors and windows. Sunday we had a family dinner. All the visitors left this morning and we assume they're all safely home by now. We sure appreciate the effort they made to come see us--and thanks to uncles Bob and Dave for loaning out your wonderful wives!

Wish I'd known...I might have driven up!

Laura said...

We did make it! (Granted, we took a three hour nap at a rest stop somewhere along the way. . . ) It was a wonderful weekend!

Mom said...

Derek, with current gas prices, you couldn't have afforded to drive up! But if you could have afforded it, we would have loved to have you!

Laura, MOVE HERE AND BE A PART OF THE COOL COUSINS!

Laura said...

Hey, I definitely agree with the cool cousins part. If only I could move Doernbecher down with me . . .

jerilyn said...

Hey, we get sick kids in Medford, too! We just send the really sick ones to Doernbecher...

I really wish you were going to be the peds nurse when I have my baby.

Don't worry Jerilyn I'm sure your peds nurse will be awesome at putting a giant bow on Marla Jr's head as soon as she is born. MINE ALWAYS WERE.

Also, the look in Ben's eyes pretty much explains EVERYTHING about Ashlin.

I'm not sure if you'd really want me though. . . I'm kind of crazy, but not in a good way. I'll come down and visit though!

Marla - I laughed SO HARD, and I don't even know Ashlin that well. . . I hadn't noticed Ben's look.
