The babies are sleeping, and dinner is baking . . . I have a quick moment!! I thought I’d write a synopsis of the past ten days . . . the first ten days of Summer.
On Saturday (June 7) we went to the park with the neighbors and my brother & sister-in-law, Danny & Eliza. The elementary school nearby just got a new playground put in, so we took the kids (ours & neighbors, ranging in age from 11 (Alexa Sorensen) years to 10 months (Calvin)) up to give it a go. It was a pretty neat playground, full of toys that I thought held all sorts of liability! Someone is bound to fall and break their neck eventually. But anyway, enough of “Capt’n Saftey” as Wyatt calls me.
We spent the afternoon lounging on the grass until Jeff told us he & family were going for Indian Food. – This story is getting too long already – Anyway, we all went out for Indian Food, and then they were having a Movie in the Park at another elementary school by our house (even closer), so we took all the kids over there. Before the movie they had bounce houses and an animal show from Hogle Zoo. But that was about all the kids could handle. Then Olivia was so tired we had to take her home and get her in bed!
On Tuesday Kellie had her baby girl, Kirtland Judy Engh. She has a head full of dark beautiful hair. She’s a cutie.
Last Saturday (June 14) we went to Highland to celebrate Father’s Day. We had a BBQ in the back yard, and then all the adults left the grandkids with Grandma & Grandpa, and we all went to a movie . . . Prince Caspian, which I liked very much.
On Sunday (yesterday, Fathers day) we went and had a BBQ at the cabin with all the Herzogs. The Herzogs don’t get together very often anymore. When I was growing up it was probably once a month. So it’s nice to see everyone. Everette has a girlfriend!
Then today, the greatest adventure of all (so far). We, Olivia, Calvin and I, went to the pool today. It was 90 degrees, perfect going to the pool weather. So off we went. I was a little nervous of having two babies to watch, but Olivia has come a long way. She wasn’t timid at all. The first thing she did was go down the slide all by herself, and then spent the next hour and a half splashing in the shallow area, going down the slide, and swinging from the hand rail, while I held and splashed with Calvin at the waters edge. We had lots of fun, and now both babies are passed out from the excitement of it all.
