School ended yesterday so we partied with Slurpies, Sky High, popsicles at the pool, and a movie at home. Then we woke up bright and early for a swim meet! I kind of love home meets – we have the best swim family and the BEST coaches! This is Hailey right before swimming 25m Butterfly.

With a huge deadline at work, I've seen Jake for just a handful of minutes this week, so it was perfect that we already had concert tickets for tonight! We joined a bunch of San Francisco hipsters at Davies Symphony Hall to hear Ben Gibbard play, and never has a guitar sounded more full and lovely. Some songs brought back memories of when we were dating and early in our marriage – our first kiss , a really big fight , and outdoor concerts on Utah summer nights . I love how @whyisjake comes up with the best date nights. #frecklesinoureyes #wheresoulmeetsbody

We love that we have some family close enough to take part in our special events! (However, yesterday Logan kept telling me that he wants me to "be died" so that Grandma could be his mom… ) Grandma and Grandpa Bain came out, and Jake and Rushton were just missing from the photo.

Hailey Mae Spurlock is a graduation girl! She sang all the songs and was so enthusiastic in her expressions and hand movements during the program. Kindergarten was just the best this year! She had good friends and a wonderful teacher. And apparently taking pictures is just. so. hard.

We had a blast at the yearbook-signing-family-lunch-on-the-green yesterday! Hailey ran around getting autographs from older kids, and Logan played kickball with Rush. And then Logan was so incredibly sad to see Rush go back to class when recess ended that he started sobbing. And then he threw up on the blacktop. As usual. That's the second time in a month that the janitor has cleaned Logan's barf from the blacktop, and he's not even a student there yet! 😬

My Dolphins swam their hearts out at a super long swim meet in American Canyon today. And I didn't even have a nervous breakdown like I did at this meet two years ago! We've all come a looooong way since then, thankfully. We now have crunchy chlorine hair, sunburns, and overtired children, but I'm so proud of Rush and Hailey for sticking it out the whole day for 4 races each!

Look who surprised us at Rushton's last baseball game tonight! Grandpa Bain was joined by @cecilieblee and her crazy little crew! The Emeralds did their best, the little kids had us running in circles just to keep track of them all, and tacos made everything better in the end. Man, babies are so much work! But oh so sweet.
