Catching up: Kathi's visit, Ben's birthday, and our Anniversary - Oh Yea and 4 of July!

I am going to try to catch you all up on what has been happening in The Life of The Doolittle's.... Oh, so exciting. I know... you have all missed my exciting entries of my exciting life. (That was an attempt at sarcasm) Truthfullly though a lot has been going on but the exciting part is all relative. We have had a good time having Kathi coe to visit us. The kids looooovvveed grandma being here to spoil them rotten with lots of love! We honestly didn't do very much as there usually isn't much motivation to go many places when you have 3 children under the age of 5 and its hot and sticky outside! We did visit Gattlenburg which is like a Solvang (I probably spelled both of those places wrong, sorry) and walked around and stuff. Caleb was sick the whole time, poor guy, so we couldn't really do to much there. When Kathi originally arrived we met Ben for dinner and went to (drum roll) ... CPK. If you couldn't guess, you probably don't know Ben as well as you thought.(JK) For the most part we hung out at the house. Had a great BBQ for Ben on his birthday.

Ben has finally reached the big 30! How time flys. It seems to be speeding up the older we get. Ben got a set of golf clubs and all the gear to golf his little heart out. Kathi left on Wednesday after Ben's birthday. We were sad to have her go. It never is enough time with our mommy's. Thanks Kathi for comming out! We miss you already!

Ben and I had our 7 year anniversary on the 29th of July. Ben never has an excuse for not knowing how many years we have been married because we were married in 2000, so if he can't get that then... well ... we have a problem. We really didn't do much. Our friend watched the kids and we went out to lunch and a movie (we watched Harry Potter). It was nice to get with each other but I was sick which by that night started getting a fever which turned out to be step throat. Lovely way to spend our anniversary. We still had a good time though.

Oh Yea! Almost forgot about 4th of July. We had a great time with my dad, Lisa and Aimee coming out for lunch. We set off the sound firworks while they were here. They had to leave before it got dark so missed the exciting big fireworks. Our neighbors were having tooo much fun whith theirs. We had one incident were they tried to set off 7 or more big fireworks all together and placed them together. One fell over which in turn knocked over all the others and the started flying across the lawns at us and the houses. It was scary! We all survived and we did not have to call the fire department so all was well. We ate watermellon and just hung out with neighbors and watched the show. We had a great time. Poor Emma (see picture little girl in dads lap) had fallen asleep but her dad didn't want her to miss the show so he brought her out. Only about five minutes later did that incident with all the fireworks shooting at us happen. He had to take her in - she was terrified!
