At Mom's!

After hours and hours of driving all night with bloodshot eyes, sleeping babies and teenagers, and a talkative husband all hopped up on Monsters, we made it to Mom's! yay! The funny thing is that, although we've never been to her house, it always feels like coming home where ever she is. It was just what we all needed to hug her and cuddle on her bed for a while when she got home from her Chemo treatment.

She's doing well. She only had half a treatment today cause her white blood cell count was low. She gets another dose of the good stuff on friday. She's sleeping right now and we all just finished dinner and are waiting for Mark to get home. They boys cleaned out their car and ours and Kristen and I snugged down for some movie time and kid play time after dinner. Tomorrow the boys go golfing and Kristen and I have plans to go visit her sister and go to this indoor pool in Portland. I think they'll enjoy it and mom will enjoy a more quiet house for a few hours, as much as she loves having us close by. :)

All in all we are very glad to be here. We've been looking forward to this trip for a while. It's good to see Sam and Kristen and be with Mom and Mark. Should be lots of fun and entertainment and we are already loving it!

Cousin Party

Over the weeken the Melin family and Cody and Tyler came to visit! We had a great time with the usual good food and good company just hangn out. For the first time this summer we got to entertain company on our new backyard! wooo hooo! The kids had a nice time out there. The boys got into some arm wrestling and horsen around which is tradition. It was just so nice to all be together and enjoy each other's company.

Dear Michael and Amy,

Please post your addresses and phone numbers (or email them to us) so we can contact you. No one knows where either of you are living or for how long, so it's hard when we have birthday cards and stuff to send and no address to send them to. I haven't heard from Amy in almost a year and I miss her, too. But I haven't moved for three years and I've had the same phone number for six years, so ...well, you get what I am saying: you have to tell people where you are and what you are doing in order for them to be able to contact you.

We love and miss you both! So glad you are having a fun summer!

love, Jamie & Rich
