Oh the Joys of Summer

So lets just start out with the cute boys I nanny. I just love them, well most of the time. Last week I told them to take a bath while I made dinner like I do everyday. While I make dinner Orion watches them to make sure that they don't drown or anything. But this time Austin asked if I would watch them instead. Since I was making chicken nuggets in the oven I agreed. Austin is so funny because he is fine with me watching him in the tub, but when Orion watches them Austin wants to close the shower curtain so he can't see him. Then he splashes his little brother in the face while Orion can't see. So when I was watching them I washed Konner's hair and realized that he had really long hair. I made it into a mow hawk and of course Austin wanted one too. This is how it turned out.
They are so cute! I made Orion bring me my phone so I could take a picture of them. He laughed when he came in and saw the boys. I am sad because come the end of next month I won't be watching them any more :( Their dad will be back from working somewhere over the summer, I always forget what he is doing or where exactly he is. So I am on the hunt for another job that probably won't be as fun or rewarding.

On other news I am almost done with school for the semester! I just have one final left to take and then it is freedom for seven weeks! I am sure Orion will love that I will be done with school for a while because I will be less stressed, which means I will be more relaxed. I have been having neck trouble the past couple weeks and I just figured it was stress from school making my neck tense. Turns out it was my pillow! I bought a new one yesterday for 11 bucks which I thought was a lot, but it was worth it! I woke up this morning with no neck pain and I was not tired at all. It was a miracle and that pillow was worth every penny.

Oh my goodness! This weekend we went to visit Orion's parents in Fresno. Let me just tell you it was so HOT! I felt like I was visiting the sun and I was going to turn into a puddle of sweat. Orion of course told me that I was over reacting and that it was not that bad. Let me just tell you he is big fat liar when it comes to the heat. The real reason we went to the hottest place on the planet was our friends wedding. They got married on Saturday morning (the same day as her parents 28 years before, so cute I thought) and had their reception that night. Here is the beautiful couple, I stole a picture from someone online...

Jesse, the groom, was Orion's roommate before we got married. Alyssa the beautiful bride is a good friend of ours. The best part of the reception was the cupcakes! Seriously this is a brilliant idea for a reception. It is like a personal cake for everyone! There was also cheesecake, just like Orion and I's reception (we think we started a trend because this is at least the second reception we have gone to since ours that had cheesecake at it). I still have a craving for those cup cakes and it has been a couple days. I am going to have to make my own soon, I am sure Orion will love that.

So school ends for the semester on the 23! I am so excited I can't handle myself. I am counting down the days till I can no longer worry about homework or anything school related for seven weeks. It will be so wonderful! On a completely different note July first was Canada Day! We had the missionaries over for dinner and celebrated Canada. One of the missionaries is from Canada so he made us a Canada flag cake.

It was pretty good, but I felt bad about eating the flag. He even had us hold napkins that said EH and took pictures. He wanted to have proof that American's were celebrating Canada day. That was a good dinner. Then came the fourth of July, which was on a Sunday. Since it was on Sunday we did not really want to go doing anything big. So we went to the Graff's for dinner (it was home made Chinese food, we are really American), spent sometime with my parents and then finished the night with friends and sparklers. It was a very mellow 4th but very enjoyable.
