What a crappy drive home.....

Well we are finally home. We had such a great time in Pullman....As you can see a little too busy to blog. So I am here to catch you all up.

So Friday I managed to get up early an exercise....Woohoo 5 Days in a row! I took Lila out shopping for Shawn's party....nothing excited just tiki fluid and groceries. But of course I had to go to 2 grocery stores because Safeway was out of Hot Dog buns.....I mean the 4th was two days ago, how could they still be out of hot dog buns.....talk about totally lame!.....When I got home we spent some of the day in the pool but most of the rest of the day outside enjoying the late sunshine....and we had a nice pre birthday dinner for Shawn, on the menu BBQ'ed Shrimp (Shawn's Favorite).....Shawn and I finished the night out at Rico's Tavern with most of our friends that were in town....So fun to all be out with out kids....Thanks Grandparents for Babysitting!....We were home by midnight....and off the bed....

Ahhh Happy Birthday Shawn...We celebrated with a big BBQ for all the July Birthdays....Marcus, Shawn, Molly, Joe, Karey and Holden.......And what a great day it was. We had such a good time seeing and catching up with all of our friends......It was pretty crazy I think there were 12 kids 3 and under......It was good fun, with good food, and great friends. Here are some pics of the party.....amazingly all the kids got along so well.....

So we left P-Town today around 1.30.....we hit some Cougar Country Drive In (Home of the best burgers in Pullman)....then we were Issaquah bound. What a ride.....The girls slept for the first hour....then MJ woke to the Play a Train Song by Todd Snider. She totally started dancing in her car seat. So funny.....She also managed to wake up Kiara....with both girls awake and hour into the trip it only went downhill from there.....I wanted to nap, Mikiah yelled "MAMA!, MAMA!" Over and over to keep me awake....she basically yelled most of the way home.....Kiara whined over everything...."I want Cheeseburger, I want M&M's.....Now"....Ugh...."I dropped my water bottle Mommy"....."GET IT Mommy".....I swear they were totally crazy.....I tried to distract them by getting them to look at cars or trailers on the road...it helped some.....anyway the real kicker was we made it to Vantage and DB was looking like she needed to pee and she was shaking....so we thought we should pull over at the next rest area.....As we are pulling in going really slow (the place was pretty packed) looking for a spot some lady in a silver acura backs out slow acts like she sees us, hesitates and then steps on her gas (In reverse) and smacks into the left front bumper of our car......at first glance there was no damage that you could see on either vehicle....we exchanged insurance info and she was on her way (almost backing out into someone else, insane lady).......So we took another look at the bumper and it turns out she pushed it back about 1-2 inches on the left side.....so its sitting pretty close to the wheel well.....so close that when we make a sharp turn the tire rubs a little bit of the plastic part of the bumper.....We will be getting an estimate and getting in touch with the lovely driver....UGH!....So this set a hungry Lila back.....who slept most of the way but was starving by the time we got in to the Quah....Shawn got some Papa Murphy's and Beer while I fed Lila in the car.....then we finally arrived at home.....Feels so good to be home.....but man vacation was fun....I have just finished all my nigh time stuff for tomorrow.....and now I am about to head to bed......Adios all....
