threesixfive, week 25

our last week of nothing before another three weeks of stuff!!
well, we didn't do 'nothing', but there wasn't anything we had to do, you know? 
my parents got moved into their new house up in rowlett last weekend, so the kids and i went up for a few days at the beginning of the week to see it and hang out with them. the rest of the week we just took it easy.

i can't believe i didn't get a good fathers day picture!!! i didn't take one of allen and the kids OR me with my dad. grrrr. this picture is not from sunday, i confess, but i started reading the harry potter books to colby this week, so i thought it was an appropriate picture to share. we've just started the second book, and he loves it! i read them all a few years ago, and he's been asking for several months if he's old enough yet. we may have to take a break when we get to book 4, but so far so good. :-)

we got to my parents house sunday evening (its super cute!). my dad took monday off and we all went to a pool/water park-ish place there in town called wet zone. i have a couple pictures from this day because i couldn't pick between these two. the first is colby with my dad, taking a break, and the second is molly laying under one of the water sprinklers.

my parents have two min-pins that molly adores. we can't have animals (with hair) because colbys allergic, so anytime molly gets to love on a dog or cat, she eats it up. mollys hugging nellie right before bedtime--you have to look close; she's the same color as the couch.

on the way home i drove through quite a storm in waco. it doesn't look as ominous in the picture, but it was pretty nasty.

allen and i got to go on a double date with some of our best friends, andy and lauren. we had dinner, and followed it up with fro-yo.

allen called the kids and i to come up to the church and help him with a video he was making for youth camp next week. he got to smash that tv with the sledgehammer.

and the packing begins.....youth camp with our group starting tomorrow (monday), but allen and i and zach (our friend who does all the videoing) are going down there this afternoon.

and that wraps up our week.
like i said, we leave today for youth camp. the group actually leaves tomorrow.
we'll get back friday, get the kids back from my in-laws saturday, then load back up and go back down to the same camp next week where allen is the camp pastor for another group of students that will come thru.
the week after that is kids camp, where our only involvement is that colbys going each day, but i'll have to pack a lunch and have him up to the church each morning by 8:00.....or maybe its 8:30. i should check on that.
then we're done!! DONE!

Wow I'm glad you had this calm week before all the madness starts up again - but you were still pretty busy! Love the picture of Molly with your parents' dog - too sweet.

Have fun at youth camp!!

hey, your link on my blog doesn't work. I thought it was just me so I would just head over to your blog each week, but someone else has told me they can't get to your blog through your link. I am not sure how to check it?

Busy summer!
But sounds like y'all are enjoying it :)
I don't know if it's just me, but for the last few weeks I haven't been able to get to your blog by clicking on your link on Sara's blog. It constantly comes up as an error. Today I had the bright idea of looking for your comment and clicking on your photo by the comment, then accessing your blog from your profile page.
