Advance token to the nearest railroad!

My oh my, what a great weekend! It started off somewhat bumpy at first with JL being home sick with the stomach flu, but he got over the sickness and our weekend began.
John's family (mom, Uncle Pinko, and grandparents) came down early Saturday morning and we headed to JL's soccer game. That lil boy of ours just melts my heart. I don't want to brag, but I think he had the biggest cheering section on the field. All of John's family, my mom, his Auntie Stephie & Billy, his best buddy Amanda, & Miss Laura. We were all cheering for him and of course the other kids too, and the whole time JL was just running on the field with a big cheesy grin & snapping his fingers. Now....this is just too funny to watch. JL is very aggressive and he likes to go after the ball. The funny part is, while he is doing all of this he snaps his fingers. I don't know why he does this, but it's just too cute!
My lil "BLOCKER"
I loved that everyone came out to watch him play! He loves getting all the attention and when he scores a goal, he makes this little grin and looks over at "his cheering section" for approval or the applausing. The next thing we need to do is make our JL Fan Club T~Shirts and we should be good to go! :0)

So after spending about an hour in the scorching heat, the family loaded up and we went to go get Ambrosia and the kids to go out to lunch. Table of 10 please, plus a baby sling.
After lunch we were all full and a bit tired so we headed to the house to do some relaxin'. Put on a movie, the kids played, I fell asleep on the floor, I think some other family folk did as well, and just relaxed the afternoon away. After the movie, John did some cookin' with his mom and grandmother before they had to get on the road back to Florence. My brother~in~law, Chance, was able to make it to the house before they left which was really nice. We kissed the family off and me, John, Ambrosia, & Chance decided to play a board game. We were going to play Battle of the Sexes but after looking at some of the cards realized it may be too hard so we should play something else. Drum roll please................................

Yep, Monopoly. I have not played this in so long and man was it fun. I didn't start off too well as everyone had all kind's of properties and I only had one, but I did seem to last longer than Ambrosia. :0) The game was going on forever and noone wanted to make good trades or bargains. Chance ended up winning but the boys weren't very happy because we made them cut all bargains and just play so the game would get over with. I think there will be a rematch in the near future.
Well since we had such a great time, Amber & I thought we should start doing game nights more often. Are next game we want to play is Life.
Anyone down for game nights? We could rotate people's houses!

To top off the weekend, yesterday we started off by going to church and then my wonderful mother said she would watch the kids for John & I so we could head up to Tucson and hit up the casino. We love the casino! I would like to just watch people instead of blowing thru $20 in 5 minutes, but yesterday John & I sat at the Wheel of Fortune slot machine and played for about 2 hours. We had such a great time! John was drawing a crowd because everytime we got a "spin" he would squel like a girl and yell out loud. There was definitely alot of laughs and smiles yesterday. It was a great way to end my weekend. We don't get too much time to ourselves but when we do I just L♥VE it!
