first thing this morning, darric had to go run a call and then around noon, he had to go run another call. max and i went to pink box and waited in line to get 2 dozen cronut holes for breakfast (i also grabbed a glazed cronut to take to jen later). then we went over to star nursery to get a string of pearls succulent for grandma dee. when we got home, the girls surprised me with gifts that they each picked out. madi got me the cool cups from target that i had my eye on. and kenzie (with the help of bryan) got me a lotion and soap from bath & body works. max cleaned his room and then had me come look at it. mostly he wanted me to look at the chalk art he made on the wall.
the kids and i went to jen and dave's at 3:00. mom, dad and grandma dee joined us too. the meltons were at disneyland. dinner was from angelina's. pizza, mushrooms, fingers, garlic balls. it was really good.
after dinner, all the girls played mexican train dominoes. jacob played one round with us and decided he'd rather sleep instead. it was grandma dee's first time playing, so i helped her a little bit. she ended up in second or third place and i was in almost last place.
we were celebrating mother's day and april/may birthdays today. since darric and josh weren't there, we just sang happy birthday to mason and my mom. i made the bundt cake and jen got a bunch of ice-cream. and after we had dessert, we got back to our game of dominoes. we played the entire game and it was no surprise that jen ended up winning. she wasn't surprised about her win either and had we are the champions all ready to play on her phone after mom laid her last domino of the game down.
every time a round ended, grandma dee would set her leftover dominoes down and get them mixed up with the ones in her train before she would remember that she had to add up her score. we'd try and separate them but that could be one of the reasons her scores were so good.
