I have tried a couple of times to post while we have been gone and have had no luck. The kids and I are flying back to Ca this afternoon. We have had such a good time in Montana. We have LOVED being here. I truly feel like Heavenly Father has had a hand in this trip and my heart has been full of gratitude. Be prepared for a travel log-blog when we get back.

Going On

*This is what we have been doing with our free time.*

The Past Two Weeks

Crewe went to Tadpole Camp.

Rich and I went to Las Vegas for the 4th of July.

I saw Jersey Boys, The Lion King and Love in Vegas.

We have gone swimming and ordered pizza to the pool. Very cool.

Crewe went to Circus Camp. No he can't balance a ladder on his nose.

Spent time with great friends. Played games.

Moved Dayne to a bed. Moved Dayne back to her crib.

Read books, ran the sprinklers and gone out to eat.

The kids and I are leaving for MT for the next couple of weeks. So today I am going to church, starting laundry, packing, making pork chops for dinner, eating cookies, finishing up a dumb book, playing on the computer and so far all I have done is snuggle with my kids in bed.....

Good Things V

Home made ice cream is an amazing Good Thing. We received an ice cream maker for our anniversary. It has been so much fun finding new recipes. So far we have only made vanilla, vanilla with eggs ( a little more custard in taste) and strawberry. We inspired our friends to break out their maker and we have also have vanilla and chocolate at their home.  Nat sent me a recipe for Nutella Ice Cream which will make an appearance soon. And then disappear even sooner.

Good Things IV

We had a small'ish pizza party for Crewe and his buddies from school. We had 3 boys and 3 girls over for pizza, swings, bubbles, and popcicles.  I tried to get the kids involved in a Simon Says game, they denied me. I did get a game of pin-the-toppings on the pizza. When it was time to sit down and eat I was trying to make sure all the kids were settled and happy. I said to one of the little boys, "Why is no one eating? Can I get anyone anything? He turned to me and replied, "Just a mintue we are busy talking. Catching up. "

Good Things III

My parents phone calls - A very Good Thing. My dad calls a couple of times a month and asks us what we are doing for dinner. "Nothing". "Do you want to go with us?" is his reply. But we live here and they live in MT so they just send us the money to pay for our dinner out. We never get to go out eat and this unexpected treat is such a delight. I am grateful for my parents kindness. It just really shows that they like us. Plus  they are thinking of us and want us to have a night off from the kitchen. Thanks Mom and Dad for a Very Good Thing. 

*My kids at Fuddruckers 2 weeks ago. We bought them sliders. Who knew you could get such small burgers at Fuddruckers?
