What's going on in Your house???

We are having A LOT of fun at the Johnson household this week. Our really close friends that moved to Pima last year are here to vist and so we have been "playing" all week. For the mommies that means sitting around and talking and making hair bows and sharing memories. For the kids, it means seeing friends they love and having "free play" all day long!!!! It's truly a win-win situation. And another win-win situation happened today when I went to the store today and bought all the ingredients for a dinner and a great dessert (chocolate mint cheesecake). When I got back from the store and returned to talking with my girlfriends, I got a wave of sleepiness, so they let me go lay down. I turned off all the lights in my room, locked the door and conked out for an hour and a half. Then I woke up and ran over to my dentist appointment without any kids. And to top it off, when I got home from that, Destiny was just finishing up making dinner and had already finished making the cheesecake!!! Seriously, aren't close friends wonderful????!!! You know what? I said it was a "win-win" situation, but it was really just a "win" situation for me!!! he he I told her it almost made me want to have another round of chemo just so she could come up and help out here at the house.... Almost!!! Bek and Lydia were here today as well helping out, and even good 'ole Ashley that moved to Prescott stopped by to hang out tonight and partake of the cheesecake!!! Love you guys!!!
So, back to the topic at hand.. At one point tonight I took a picture of what was going on at our house in a five minute period of time. We had sent the boys (Colter and Will) to have their evening bath and all the older kids were jumping on the trampoline with the neighbor kids.... I took my camera around and you can see what was really going on......
Ooops! Caught in the Act!! The kids had poured a whole bottle or maybe two of shampoo into the water and had created a HUGE bubble bath!! Here we see the guilty Colter..he he
And, they let Brooklyn in as well and she was having a heyday in the bubbles!!
Here is the other instigator!!!
And here is all three, if you can find them under all the bubbles!!
So then I decided to see what was going on out front.....
Morgan had pushed the trampoline underneath the huge swingset and the kids were jumping off the top of it onto the tramp. I told him that he would have to pay all the ER bills!!!
It was a long way down!!
They liked to stand up straight on the top and just fall backwards!!! I would never be able to do that.... I am much too chicken!!!
See Morgan in the corner..... You silly daddy you!!!! But, I tell you what! They had the time of their lives!!!! Hopefully their parents aren't reading this blog!!! he he

So, that is what is going on in the Johnson house... stay tuned for more!!

I wonder where Morgan got such a crazy idea! I would never do such a foolish thing! I would never get so good at that that I could jump up to the swingset standing and fall back down all in out smooth motion. Granmma and Pappa would surely, absolutely, never allow such dangerous activities on THEIR swingsets! :)
