Today John and his girlfriend Kortney surprised Emma and Abbie with a trip to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. They had a great time. Tommie and Shawn mowed the lawn. Easton and Joey kept us busy as usual. Grilled some yummy steaks for supper that Shawn's mom gave us and I made some holiday potatoes. Tried to get some laundry done but it is a never ending battle with 8 people in the house. Over the weekend, the Senior Legion baseball team John plays on won the championship at the 3 day Fremont Roadkill Tournament. They all did a fantastic job. I worked 12-6 p.m. on Sunday, Shawn took Joey to Fremont to watch the championship game and Tommie babysat Easton, Emma, and Abbie. Big dust storm came up Sunday evening around 7:00, followed by heavy rains around 9:00. Got almost 3 inches and flooded streets. Saturday I attended a nice bridal shower for Ashley Buman then worked 4-8 p.m. Shawn stayed home with the 4 littles, John played baseball in Fremont, and Tommie played baseball in Wayne. Unfortunately we weren't able to attend their games. Friday night, (May 25), I took Joey and Emma and Abbie to Fremont to watch John's game. Stopped at Zesto's on the way home. Yum, yum! Thursday (May 24) was Abbie's 6th Birthday. Happy Birthday Sweetie! Had a nice day - Nikki took Emma, Abbie and Cooper to the aquatic center for swimming cause the water park wasn't open that day. Nikki came back to babysit Joey and Shawn and I took the girls and Easton to Tommie's baseball game here in Columbus. Unfortunately, it started to rain and the games were called off. Went to Valentino's for supper and then home for birthday cake and presents. John played baseball in Lincoln. Wednesday (May 23), Easton had his 6 month check up with Dr. Rosenquist. He weighs 21 lbs. 4 oz. and 27 and a half inches long. Big boy, although not as big as John and Tommie were at that age. He's doing well, he's such a joy and makes our whole family smile. He's not a bit spoiled (right!). Tuesday (May 22) the girls had 2 coach pitch games and their team won both games. It is so fun to watch. Shawn is their coach. Nikki watched Joey and I took Easton to their 1st game. I stayed home with Easton and Joey for the second one though as Nikki had to go and it didn't start til after 9:00 anyway. Late night for the girls. That's the last week in a nutshell I guess.
