HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Richard and Mary!
Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Thomas!

This morning everyone got up early to pack up. Wil and Tony left earlier to have lunch with Tony's family in LA. The rest of us met Wey and Gina for lunch at Islands. Lunch was nice, even though I felt sad knowing that everyone was leaving right after. *BOO-HOO!*

After everyone left, Aric, Ashlyn, and I went to Rob & Brooke's Anniversary BBQ. They had the BBQ poolside, and Ashlyn and I spent the afternoon playing in the water. Ashlyn's getting over her fear of the water...mainly water getting on her face. She boldly splashed around and attempted jumping into the pool many times. My arms got a really good work out. She even went under water a few times and didn't freak out. Ashlyn made several friends at the pool... mostly older kids who showed off their swimming skills to me. hehehe!

After the BBQ, Aric and stopped off at Old Navy for some shopping. We took advantage of some sale items and walked away happy campers. =)

The rest of the evening was spent relaxing at home. It felt like a lazy Sunday...even though it was a Monday. We watched TV and ate leftovers from last night's dinner.

We had a super fun weekend! Ivy and I agreed that living communal-style was not that bad. I think an extra bathroom would have been helpful, but it was pretty fun. A great huge THANKS to all my friends! You guys ROCK!!!
Hope you had a funfilled long weekend! *YAWN!* Pooped!
