UPS Bake Sale!

Seth came home from work this week and said that his co-worker had been in an accident and that when she was going through some tests they found a fungi growing on her brain! She has been in the hospital for a week and will probably be there for awhile longer. She was 5 days away from having health insurance! Isn't that just lucky! Anyway, they decided to have a bake sale to help earn some money for her to help with bills. So I decided to make this cake I have been wanting to make and I think it turned out pretty good! I am having a lot of fun with this! I can't wait to get started on Seth's birthday cake, it is going to be quite the challenge!

"I'm not a soccer player anymore, I am a soccer scorer!"

This past weekend we went down to Medford to stay with my adorable little people! Ben had to head down to CA for work and he decided to take Aimee and go to the Stanford vs. UofO game on Saturday (BTW: I blame them for the terrible loss!;-). So, we headed down to watch the kiddo's. We had so much fun! Though there wasn't much sleeping! I have decided that I really like sleep and miss it, but it was well worth it!

Friday was fun, we got the kids off to school and just got to hang out with Jared. He is so sweet, we just love him. It wasn't too long ago when he couldn't even be in the same room with me and he would cry but this weekend we totally bonded! It was so fun to sing him to sleep and then get the 10 minutes of snuggles when he woke up. He is a complete doll!

Saturday, Luke had a soccer game in the morning and it was awesome! He scored a goal, and came running off the field to tell me about it and ask if he could call his dad after the game to tell him, then he ran back on the field to keep playing! It was so cute, there was no way I was going to tell him he scored for the wrong team! (He is truly a Whitmer!) After the game, on the ride home he informed us that he was no longer a soccer player, he was now a soccer scorer, and it was a lot more tiring to play soccer when you make a goal! I love it! Seth and I were sitting in the front seat just giggling!

When we got home from the game, we had lunch and put the boys to bed and Makenna and I took off for a girls afternoon of Ice Cream and grocery shopping! We got waffle bowl ice cream sundaes and just talked and talked! It was super fun, she is growing up so fast! How does that happen, I feel like I am missing so much!

Saturday night we went to see the temple. I hadn't ever been to the Medford temple before and wanted to go look at it. (Also, we had heard from a very reliable source that the coolest McDonalds ever was nearby!) So we loaded up the kiddos and headed out, all the way there we sang primary songs and when we got there the kids were so excited. Jared was in awe, he just stared as he walked towards the temple. Just as we were getting out of the car, they locked the gates and the kids were so sad. They wanted to walk around the grounds, but we just sat on the bench while Makenna told us about her primary activity when she got to go inside. It was really fun to be there with them.

From the temple we headed to what turned out to be a really cool McDonalds! I would recommend it to anyone. It was a musical themed play structure. The slide was a piano and when you went down it, it sounded like running your hand accross a keyboard. There were drums you could jump on and a guitar! It was pretty cool!

Well we would do it again in an instant! We had a blast!
