Snore fest

Got home and got a 40 minute workout routine going. Yay!!  I really wanted to go to the gym since I missed Monday. But sometimes taking the kids to ride bikes is better than the gym. For them, not me. So yesterday I figured if I worked out with Jillian I could still take the kids to ride before basketball and it worked out. 
After basketball we got Jamba Juice and went home to some BBQ steaks and rice. Thank you daddy. Drinking my jamba for breakfast. 
Tonight I really needed to read with the girls, to the girls and listen to them read. So i asked ben to read to Kam and lay with him. 
This is where moms are so different than dads. I'm brushing Kams teeth and he keeps looking for Ben. Ben is hiding. Well hiding and scaring kids doesn't fit into bedtime routines to me, but maybe they work for others. Loud talking and rough housing doesn't usually put kids in the mood to sleep. Finally get Ben into Kams room and then I can hang out with the girls. 
Can't find my city of bones book that we started last year and so we read bad kitty. Strange book. It talked about how to write stories, how you need a protagonist, a setting, plot, theme, difference between theme and plot. Cuddled into Peyton's bed with the girls and we read by fake candlelight. The kids are reading really well and it was fun to hang out and read too. 
After I turned the light off in the girls room, I noticed kam and Ben were still awake playing with the cowboy Woody, and the light was on, so I turned it off and got ready for bed. 13 minutes later, Ben is snoring so loud, I could hear it over the TV downstairs (with the surround sound on). I ended up going downstairs, and turning the TV down, but didn't turn it off, I knew Ben would wake up and go back downstairs to finish his show. Haha
Ben was snoring so loud I had to tell Bianca to listen. Haha

The blink of an eye

Seems 10 days have come and gone in the blink of an eye. 
Tuesday was basketball again, the kids have improved so much since last year and I'm a bit bummed that I don't get video of them hooping it up, but I'm so busy chasing kam around the court and keeping him from throwing basketballs at the kids as they run by or trying to pass to them as they dribble around. We had a near miss as a girl tripped, caught herself and dribbled her ball on top of his. 
We went to spaghetti factory for dinner after practice and it was delicious, we didn't get in to eat til 830 and it was cheap night $5 a plate and $3 for kids.  Can't beat that with the zoo we have. 
Wednesday was soccer meeting for ssa. Looks like we have 1 u9 girls team. Tryouts this Saturday. Looks like Carly, my girls, Logan and maybe jaiden and chela will try out. There will be trainers, and lots of opportunity for training or so it seems. That makes it sound very good. Lets hope we have an amazing soccer year. 
Riley came to spend the night Saturday. Amy and Ty went to Oakland for supercross. She came at 8 am and Amy brought Starbucks and the person in front of her in the drive thru paid all $23. Talk about awesome and Amy said that's the first time that's ever happened. She paid for the car behind her, but was only $8. She said she felt like she should pay for the next few cars. LOL.  Kids were happy with chocolate milks and us with vanilla lattes. Sydney and Peyton had soccer camp so I made the mile plus walk with Kam and Riley (and bob stroller) to the park. I had snacks, drinks and a diaper bag. Woot!  Spent 3 hours  at the park with the kiddos. Chasing them, rounding them up and having so much fun. We ate snacks and I changed a gross, huge through the clothes poop... Glad I had diaper bag and change of clothes.  Kam was lucky and peed behind the bushes. Yay for boys. 
Got home and spent about 2 hours playing outside watching kids ride bikes and play. I was exhausted and ready for a nap. Kids got a short one. I didn't. 

Friday night game night

Kam asked me to sit in the chair again. I'm really sad and tired. Everyone is in bed going to sleep. Except me. I be a
blogin in the chair wishing I was laying down or sleeping.  We all have to get up early for soccer camp and Bianca's volunteering at the animal shelter. I was hoping to laying in bed with him again
So the kids want to implement game night again. This comes and goes like the rain. Not the rain of late cuz you did notice the drought. Right?  Anyhow. Apples to apples is always a favorite. We skipped the Disney edition thinking the girls read a whole lot better these days. So we are playing the 12 years old version. Or maybe it was 10 years old and up. The first few cards are ok. But then the meanings of words and which card to play. Oops. We laughed so hard some of us cried others of us farted. We are a crazy family. 
I planned on giving examples but now Kam wants me to cover him again and rub his back. ❤😍❤
We will have to play family game night part deux tomorrow night while Kamren is at the monster truck jam.
