This picture is hilarious, it was the first morning Matt was gone... ALayna and Everett smiling, Ethan mad at Alayna because she apparently copied him in holding her hands up with the I Love You sign, haha.
The week was extra hard because we had just lost Cookie, so the house felt extra lonely. My sweet friend Jolene sent me these flowers to cheer me up.
I took the kids to Chuckee Cheese one day after school.
A visit to the park... where Everett loved playing in the mulch.
We met up with my friend Kelly and her kids for a hike at the trails at Oakmont Park in Redlands one day after school. It was such a beautiful day, with clear skies and the green grass everywhere. The views from the top of the trail are great.
The kids may or may not have eaten Del Taco three times within the week, haha. Other than that we did well! We were OH so happy to have Matt return. Since he had left 4:00 am Sunday, and got home late Thursday night, he didn't go into the office on Friday. We got to enjoy a nice little lunch date at Bonitas in Yucaipa while the big kids were at school. Everett enjoyed it as well :)
