I've gotten behind...a summary

I've been having photo software issues. I've tried to post several times, but without photos to post...I often can't think of anything worth writing about. It's been a busy week. The kids had 3 birthday parties to go to last week. It was too busy for my taste. Daniel had his tonsils removed on Thursday. We had to be at the hospital at 6am. Fortunately for us, my blessed mother volunteered to come over here at 5:30am to take care of the kids so that I could take him in. His surgery only took 20 minutes, but there were several hours of pre-op and post-op we left the hospital around 10am. I was about to take a picture of him in his hat and surgical gown with my cell phone, but I was interrupted by the Dr's the internet missed out on that photo.

We went strawberry picking on Friday morning, and it was crazy busy. We came home with about 12 pounds of strawberries. I made a strawberry pie (and ate too much of it), froze most of them, and we've been eating the remaining fresh ones non-stop since then. Daniel spent Friday afternoon doing a major refurb on our grill. It was in bad shape.
On Saturday I finally got my hands on a cheap used treadmill. So exciting. I've been looking for about 6 months. I plan to use this one until it kicks the bucket...then I'll splurge on a new one.

Because of Daniel's surgery, I didn't get the stuff for Easter baskets and eggs until Saturday. I also didn't even consider the fact that my son is turning 2 years old this week until yesterday. Not cool. I ended up having to place an Amazon order with expedited shipping just to get him some presents here on time.

We spent Easter morning enjoying General Conference, and the afternoon celebrating with my parents. We need to load up the sessions onto our Zunes to catch up on the sections that we missed. I very much enjoyed the parts that I did catch.

So you can download conference sessions! I only saw how to listen, not how to download. You guys have been busy! Where did you get your treadmill? Craigslist?

Yes, Craigslist. It belonged to a little old lady (late 70's) who never used it. Her daughter was selling it for her. It's semi-old, but has barely been it works fine. And flips up (that was a feature I needed).
