Weekend in review

We had a busy few days and this is the first chance I've had to post for a bit. Saturday morning Cerra and I dropped mom off at the airport. She took a trip to Salt Lake City to visit the family. We came home and poked around the house. Cerra played with the animals and tended to some chores while I tinkered with the computers. About 3:00 we headed out to meet the Panike family and go boating at a nearby reservoir. Linda (Mrs. Panike) was ill and stayed home, which was disappointing because Cerra and I just love her. But we were pleasantly surprised to find that Hayden (the Panike's son) brought Kimball and Carlie Palmer along. Kimball and Carlie are from another great family we go to church with, and Cerra teaches Carlie's Sunday school class. Chris (Mr. Panike) was at the helm of his bass boat most of the afternoon, whizzing Cerra and the kids around the lake on skis, knee-board and tubes. Toward the end of the day, Cerra took the helm and dragged Chris around the lake for a few laps. By 7:00, about when we pulled the boat out of the water, everyone had been towed a few times and had their fair share wipe-outs.

Early Sunday morning, we were awakened by the sound of the five kittens Dweezle had given birth to while we slept. Great, more cats... anyone need a mouser? I wasn't feeling well and reluctantly stayed home while Cerra went to Boise to attend church with Doug Craven's (Cerra's dad) family. The reason for attending church in Boise was a farewell for Devan, Doug's step-son, who is going on a LDS mission to Singapore. Coincidentally, Linda Panike was born and raised in Singapore, and it's likely that Devan will meet some of her family and friends there. I spent Sunday recovering from a long week, and my dear wife was home by 6:00.

Monday and Tuesday were pretty uneventful work days. The only thing of note was Mom's safe return from her trip to Utah yesterday evening. Cerra picked her up at the airport, and it sounds like she had a really fun time with Nolan, Alan, Ani, all the kids and the kids' kids.
