Life gets in the way!

I have been so out of touch with my blog this past week! Life has been busy and what a great week! We were in Denver last week, Luke for a work thing and I for Emily's baby shower. It was a great weekend to spend with family and friends. We stayed at the Canales' and the little ones played so well together. Emmett talked about Jack for days after we left! The Anderson/Sands Clan got together on Friday night at Maggiano's for a wonderful dinner. It was really great to get to see everyone while we were in town. Donna has a bunch of really great pictures on her blog of dinner. I forgot my camera, and would have been too busy anyway. Emmett and Jack were pretty tired and there was so much to see at the huge restaurant! Earlier in the day, Julie and I took the boys to Monkey Business, an indoor playground filled with slides, bounce houses, and so much more. It was one big, fun day of Chaos! Emily's baby shower was held at Molly's on Saturday. She received lots of wonderful things for Gracie. She also looks great for being a month and some away from delivery! It was really great getting to catch up with the girls(Kate, Jenny, Sam, Julie and of course Emily!) but the highlight was getting to see all of the kiddos. I haven't seen some of the kids in years. They have all grown up so quickly. Emmett included!
We got home on Sunday night after a very easy drive home. Emmett's new fav movie is Cars. It was played twice on the drive and is still asked for on a daily basis! If the DVD player was not broken, it would probably be memorized by now!
After getting back in the swing of things, we got to watch as Luke was accepted in to the Rotary Club on Thursday. Should be a great opportunity for community involvement and networking. Congrats, honey! We are very proud of the work Luke has done here in this small town.
Emmett and I had a lunch playdate with the girls at Pizza on the Run on Friday. This place does not have very good food in my opinion, but is kinda like the Chuck E Cheese of Cody. They have all sorts of games and play equipment for the kids to let loose on and us parents get to sit back and enjoy the terrible pizza. Sounds just like Chuck E Cheese, right?!
We had a pretty easy going weekend. I feel like I am coming down with a small cold(eating lots of grapefruit and oranges!). Luke went with some friends down to Laramie Friday night and got home Saturday afternoon, still a bit fuzzy from the night before. Then we proceeded to do nothing but odds and ends around the house. Sunday was football and food, and here we are back to Monday....Life gets busy.
