Happy Birthday Andrew (a month ago)

on March 31st Andrew turned a whopping 6 years old, how crazy is that?  He was very excited for this day to come and talked a lot about it and what kind of party he would have.  Andrew was spoiled rotten and had a couple of parties and birthday cakes.  We had family over for one of them and then Andrew and his friends went rock climbing for the other.  What an awesome thing it is to see 6 year old boys scaling a 30 foot wall and ring the bell when they got to the top.  You know me, I got a little teary eyed, I was so proud of them.  It was  a fun party.  The best was driving the boys over to Dimple Dell, there was a lot of talk about poop, pee, throw up, butts.... Anyway...  we love Andrew and it is great to see him grow.  He is reading and writing sentences.  He even wrote a book and read it to his class.  It was called "The Man in the Dip".  He loves to play legos and watch Indiana Jones.  He has great friends around, we are so happy to have about 6 6 year old boys within a couple of streets.  He just started playing baseball and does a great job hitting the ball.  I would also like to brag that on most days he makes his bed in the morning before school.  He is a good brother and watches out for his sisters and is always willing to have Ella tag along with him and his friends.  I love Andrew, he is my buddy.  I'm afraid that all his sarcasm has come from his mother, I am trying to work on that.  Happy Birthday Andrew!

Last night I was at the gym running in the the Media Room, this is where they play movies in a dark cool room while you work out.  So "Laura Croft Tomb Raider" just ended when I got there and "White Noise 2" was the movie that followed.  Holy Crap!  I am sorry but running in a very dark room where you can't even see the person next to you clearly while a scary movie is playing is ridiculous!  my 30 minute run seemed like an eternity, I couldn't wait to get the heck out of there.  

Dear Golds Gym,

Maybe next time play a movie that doesn't scare the crap out of people.

Love, Andrea
