Life 2011: Week 27

Monday, June 27, 2011

Grandma Smith left early this morning and JJ had to leave really early for Scout Day Camp! He was so excited! While he was gone, I took Beth to the doctor and got some medicine for her cough - most likely bronchitis. After just one dose - she was already doing better! JJ had n amazing time at Day Camp. He got to participate in everything and brought home a harmonica, which just delighted him! Our #6 Family Fun Activity is the Scout Day Camps that both Beth and JJ got/will do this summer! We went to Walmart to pick up some groceries and Beth's medicine. Since they were both doing so well - we stopped for a sundae at McDonalds on our way out of Walmart. It was a great treat!

We headed to the library this afternoon to pick up the kids' awards for this week's reading and we got to learn about some things about Japan! I think the kids' favorite part was watching a local group that are trained in some Japan ninja stuff. Very fun! Joey and I got to go on our last anniversary date and see The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. I'm so glad we did this - it's been so wonderful to see the movies again on the big screen!

Beth was so excited about our Scout Day Camp today! I dropped her off at the Canyon Glen Park, where she got to spend the morning/afternoon doing all kinds of fun things. It is my 32nd birthday today. Since 32 just happens to be my favorite number, I have decided that this next year better be a great one! I dropped the kids off at Cody and Becki's house and Joey took me out for my birthday. We went to a fancy restaurant called Communal. It was very good. Then we visited with Cody and Becki for awhile and had dessert with the kids (Strawberry Cheesecake). It was a nice day.

There's nothing that says Summer better than SPRINKLERS! The kids had a good time running through the sprinklers this afternoon, while I got some things done. Beth got rained out up the canyon so her Day Camp ended up being at a Church in Lindon, but she still had a great time.

Beth had her last day of Day Camp and she was sad that it was over. She had such a great time! We made homemade fries to go with dinner tonight and they were so yummy! I spent most of the day doing laundry, cleaning up, and getting ready to go to Orderville for the weekend.

What a day! We started early for Orderville. But once we got to Panguitch, we spent about an hour out in the heat....our van decided to break down! After just getting another fuel pump in it, we were feeling really discouraged. It wouldn't start. We were calling around and my sister was trying to help us from Orderville. We even had Roger coming with the tow truck. We decided to have a prayer as a family - and soon after, our van decided to start. So we called and canceled the tow truck and we made it to Orderville. It was such an immediate answer to prayer and I am so grateful that my kids' had the opportunity to see that prayer really works. We were hot and tired by the time we got there - but we did get there. Our van immediately started spilling gas all over, but my Dad was able to patch it up. We spent the evening with Kori and her family and the kids were so excited to play with the cousins. But I think the day took a lot out of us - even the kids were pretty konked out by the end of this day!

After church, we headed up to Sink Valley for a cook-out and fireworks. It was fun to have lots of family and friends joining us. Becki's parents came, along with Kenley and Amy and their kids, my parents, Clint, Kori and her family, Cody, Becki, & Mallory, and of course my family. I love that Beth is getting more adventurous and even though she was a little scared - she was able to climb to the tree to the awesome tree hut that has been at Sink Valley for as long as I can remember. My dad built it for Kori when she was little. Once Beth climbed up there once, so was up and down from it a lot. A wonderful evening!

And here is my weekly layout:
