Baby Showers and Basketball

Baby Showers
Berg is so blessed - he got to have 2 baby showers! I can't believe it! He's baby #5 and he gets to have that spot in his baby book filled out - if I ever get to that. I know this is a rarity for a fifth child. The first one was thrown by the wonderful Schocks on June 12th - a murder mystery party! I was Muffy, little miss perfect, married to Derick (Peter) a loser and an obnoxious jock. It was so much fun - I love these kind of parties and the food was delicious too! I love our cool friends!

The second one was at our new church Lake City Community. They throw baby showers for all the new member/attenders who have babies. So Kristy and I got to have a duel baby shower for Julia and Berg who were born about 6 hours apart. It was a freezer meal shower so instead of traditional gifts the ladies gave us dinners, which was the most awesome thing!

On June 19th Peter played in the Helmets vs. Shields basketball game. We sat up in the stands with a sign we had made for him and cheered and ate candy the whole game. The kids loved it! And the police beat the firefighters for the first time ever! (I think.) It was a great game - until the last minute of the game, when Peter's lip met the back of another player's head.

After the game, Dada had to go to the hospital to get his lip super glued back together.

And here's one more pic of Dada and all his babies on Father's Day. The kids made him cards, breakfast, picked him flowers and tried to let him sleep in until we had to go to church. (Eben is seen in his recent attire - a lab coat and goggles with no lens which he's been wearing every day for almost 2 weeks now.)

New Things

New things are happening here at the Johnson home.
Eben and Kivi have both learned to ride a 2-wheeler! Well, Eben learned about 2 years ago and then took a sabbatical until now. And Kivi decided she was done with training wheels and wanted to ride on her own after learning that once you can start and stop by yourself you get to trick out your ride with a bell, basket and cool handle bar ribbon thingys. They love to race up and down the driveway now that we've figured out a no crashing system and removed the huge bush that was causing most of the crashing into each other. We got a lot of videos of them riding, but no still shots, I'll have to get some. For now, here's Bubba and his scooter riding helmet that he wore for a couple days straight - everywhere...

like to the Seattle Science Center! Nonnie took us while she was here helping with Berg. Actually, she was helping with all the rest of them which was a huge help! The kids loved it and we didn't even get to see the whole museum. But that's ok because Nonnie got us a membership - since it is now actually more affordable to buy our family a year long membership instead of a day pass.

Tummy time is a new thing for Berg - and the kids are all enthralled with it too! He's like a little magnet as soon as I lay him down on the floor they all flock to him.

Eben's learning to help out more and more around the house! Although he is definitely a boy (crazy) and does boy (weird) things, he's also learning to be a great little man. On June 3rd Dada taught him how to mow the lawn and he did a wonderful job!

Eben also lost his two bottom teeth on June 12 and 14! He thought the Tooth Fairy didn't come because he didn't have any money under his pillow and his tooth was still there when he woke up - but when he looked later in the day - low and behold - the crazy Tooth Fairy had come! She must be invisible and overworked.
