today is a good day. why, well because my life is good. i had the privilege of driving my parents to the airport and dropping them off so they could go on their vacation to hawaii. i could tell they were both excited. this is a gift for my mom, from my dad, her 50th bday present. i wish we could of gone with them, they are so fun to hang out with. we joke, laugh, cry and then laugh again. they are a hoot. my mom and i pick on my dad alot. they had me when they were so young. but they are my parents, i love them so. just love them.
the kids and i went to church last night, erik took two of his closest friends. so glad he feels comfortable enough to invite friends to church. we go to lakewood, and they have the coolest hangout for the kids. when i was growing up in lakewood we had a gym, but the kids now have a floor called "the loft" dedicated to them. they have playstations, a cafe and this cool place where they have their shows. the music they play is like if you were at a club, but its christian music. so glad erik (and then the girls) have this place to go. i loved growing up in the youth group. i have the best memories from their. its a safe place. you learn alot growing up in youth group. you may not stick by all of the things you are taught when you go through your early 20's but as you get older you go back to the teachings and go 'now i understand.' anyway eriks friends had a blast, they are looking to go bk next wk. so happy-
