Lighting Up Memorial Day

Ever since he was little, the Dog Walker loved lights. He is in charge of changing out all of the burned bulbs and brightening dark corners. Headlamps, flashlights, lanterns, all kinds of lights really, but his favorite seems to be the holiday lights.

You already know that he goes all out for Christmas and Halloween every year, transforming our house into something magical. This year he spent some of his hard-earned cash (I hope he asked his wife first...!) to display our patriotic spirit for the summer holidays starting with Memorial Day.

I hope you all love red, white, and blue!

Happy Birthday, Bean Dip!

Today was the temple dedication for the Jordan River Temple. We had some of our family members attend each of the 3 sessions.

At 5:00 we had a barbecue for Bean Dip to celebrate his 16th birthday. The cloudburst at 4:00 put a damper on things so we set up the tables and the food and ate in the house, but the rain smelled amazing!

Bean Dip is usually pretty camera-shy, so I was excited to get a pic while he wasn't paying attention.

Just Another Saturday

We had a great day today! Curly went to the Tracy Aviary with his Cub Scout den and they sent us a bunch of cute pics, but this is my favorite.


While they were off having fun, my sweetie and I took Scout and Baby Doll to their softball games. Sadly, the games were right over the top of each other so I ended up watching Scout since she volunteered me to keep score, and my sweetie watched Baby Doll on the opposite field.

Scout's game was late getting started which was a big problem since she had to be at the church at 11:30 for the carpool downtown to the Conference Center. We made it with about 4 minutes to spare.

After the game, I took a nap for about an hour and got up just in time to watch the Cultural Celebration on TV. We had some great views of Crafty, but technical issues during Scout's part of the show, so I'm going to have to watch it again when I can really concentrate on finding her.

A quick trip to the store after that so we could be prepared for Bean Dip's birthday party tomorrow (that boy is turning 16!) and then we gathered the kids up and took them downtown again, but for the Bees game this time. These were our last 10 tickets from the Sing-a-long and we had just enough to take Taco and Burrito with us.

It was a good game. The Bees were down by 1 point when we left at the beginning of the 9th inning, but the kids were tired and it had been a long day for all of us. I just checked the score and they actually lost by 4 points in that final inning.

Getting an autograph.

I finished embroidering the last of the hankies for the dedication tomorrow and I'm excited to get a little sleep tonight. Maybe...

Are You Ready?

I forgot to tell you that yesterday Princess and The Frog and Tadpole all came up and took me to lunch for Mother's Day. We enjoyed sandwiches and salads at the Village Baker. I think Twizlet had more fun playing with my food than she did eating it.

Tonight we had to pick up the girls after their rehearsal downtown, so we decided to make an evening of it. Unfortunately, my phone was nearly dead, so I didn't get to take any pics for you, but we parked near the Conference Center and then walked about half a mile to a little Chinese/Thai place. The food was good and we had enough left to keep the girls from starving on the way home. We couldn't stop and buy them anything because Crafty had a homework assignment that was due at midnight. We rolled in just after 11:00 and since I didn't hear any wailing or gnashing of teeth, I'm assuming she got it turned in by the deadline.

Tomorrow is the big day of the Cultural Celebration and then the rededication of the Jordan River temple on Sunday. I'm excited to see it all come together! We can watch it streaming at 2:00 MST at www.jrtready.org If you get a chance to tune in, look for Crafty in a gold dress and Scout in a foam green one.
