Summer Vacation

During the last 12 days:

  • We spent 5 days in Reno. I wouldn't recommend Reno as a destination. But while we were there, we managed to walk through the casinos, drink a beer at a microbrewery, do a shot with each of our two nephews, eat at a buffet, play $1 each on a slot machine, and attend a Reno chapel wedding. 
  • With my mom's help, I made arguably the most beautiful diaper cake I've ever created.
  • After we returned to San Jose, my sister Nicole, her husband Cliff and 19-month-old Dylan visited from Florida. Plus, my aunt Gloria, uncle Archie and cousin Lindsey visited from Washington. 
  • My mom, Nicole and I got our nails done and went to lunch.
  • I bought a new purse. It's pink, and I love it.
  • Dylan got his first haircut, and I colored the gray out of mine.
  • We celebrated my grandfather's 93rd birthday and tried to convince him that he is really 39. 
  • I made three trips to Michael's. Two of them on the same day.
  • I went bowling with my cousins and scored a 40 on my first game and a 97 on my second. I also managed to throw the ball down the lane before the machine had a chance to reset. 
  • My mom and I threw my sister a baby shower. (Baby Cecilia Kay is expected to arrive mid-August.)
  • My brother Joseph announced he was hired by the Melbourne Fire Department. (A job he worked very hard to get.) 
  • We celebrated Father's Day with my family. My brother Jimmy gave my dad an underwear repair kit.

I have to know. What is an "underwear repair kit"? A new pair? ;)

Wonderful! So much fun and all in 12 days! You must be exhausted or exhilarated.

OK. Per the product description, the Underwear Repair Kit includes "needle and thread, iron-on patches, 2 safety pins, an elastic waistband, duct tape, white-out, and a 32-page Instruction MAN-u-al that clearly demonstrates the ins and outs of proper maintenance and repair to turn that one pair into an ever-wear."
