Miscellaneous, holiday weekend

 The season is upon us!!  The boys were kinda slow to get back to racing, this was actually their first race of the season, they did Imperial Classic on Saturday.  Both of them raced very well.  This year Imperial Classic wasn't in Imperial, they moved it to Brawley where they did Cattle Call last year, I think it was a good move.

 Valentine's Day was this week, but weeknights are pretty busy at our house, so when Craig asked me what I wanted for our Valentine's date, I rather selfishly said I would love a trip to IKEA, so on Friday I got my belated date.  You just gotta love a man who will suffer through IKEA with you.  I picked out a piece of butcher block that will eventually become the new island counter top.  You have to love him even more 'cause there's going to be a bunch of honey do's in this process!  So we're off to a start, I cleaned the island cabinet base with  TSP substitute, and then read there is a better product called Krud Kutter so Craig went over them a second time with the Krud Kutter.  I was all set to paint the island white and stain the butcher block a dark brown color, but now I'm leaning towards black island, natural beech counter top and the rest of the kitchen cabinets white with black granite, and the floor ohh don't even get me started!!  Tomorrow is primer, and then check back in a few days to see if I did black or white.
This is the butcher block I picked out, it remains to be seen what color it will end up.

Brent's Birthday Card

Happy Birthday son!  We all love and miss you, next year what do you say, birthday celebration at the cabin?  It'll be the best!  I hope you are recovered enough from the salmonella to eat cake!  Enjoy, we are thinking about you.

Kerri's Valentine's day

The bouquet of balloons that Kendall and the boys brought to Kerri's work last night!  They brought her 30 balloons (driving the Walmart employees crazy picking them all out), they also each picked out a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates and new pajamas.  They were so proud of it all marching down the hospital hallway.
