Poor Brenna and I as well! We had a fun "Girl's Night" planned but couldn't get it started until the boys left! Then, we had a fun morning planned but Brenna slept in so long as a result of our late night start, that the boys were home right after she woke up!
A friend's sister was in town who is talented at doing nails so I had her come and do our nails for our girls night. Brenna was so excited she was jumping up and down. I was a bit nervous at someone else looking at my feet but rallied my courage as well. :)
Brenna's were so cute! She chose a pattern of polka dots with pink background on her toes, and the same with a purple background on her fingernails. I got a french style with a flower; toes only.
Sunday night Rob's parents and sister Melanie came for a visit. Rob's birthday was on Monday so we celebrated by going out to lunch with his family (including his sister and family who live here) and having dinner at our house that night. All went well for the festivities except for the fact that the moment dinner was ready to eat, we discovered our basement drains were backing up! That took some time to clean up/solve/stress over, so by the time we were through dinner was cold. We figured out the problem, though, and there was minimal damage. It could have been much worse.
Here is the birthday boy; 34 years old!
Do you see that hat Kami is wearing? That's right- it say "Happy Birthday Brenna." Since Seth and Brenna have birthdays in the summer, their teachers wanted to let them have a day to celebrate their birthday in class. So I was expected to bring treats for the class. So that makes five out of six birthday celebrations for our family in the month of May. :)
I surprised Rob with a new computer chair for his birthday. He had a lot of helpers helping him put it together.
Some cute pics of Russ I had to include:
Grandpa pushed Russ and Grant around in the empty box:
Trying out the new chair!
I made Rob a Lemon-Berry Trifle for his birthday dessert. IT WAS SOOOOOO GOOD! I found the recipe from Rob's cousin's AMAZING cooking blog. If you would like to see more delicious recipes check it out at:

And thank you, Wal-Mart, for a very inexpensive trifle dish! This was a labor of love, but well worth it. We cleaned up every last drop of it.
