My mom wants a blog update. She’s wondering if no posts this week meant BUSY or BORING… I’m leaning towards busy but I’ll let her decide. Here’s the update:
Monday we had the Falabella cousins over after lunch and played and swam in the hot tub all afternoon. We had a simple Family Home Evening and called it a night.
Tuesday we had a chill morning and then we went to the “Beach”. It is a small pond, 5 minutes from our house with a little beach area. We invited Lucie to come so she met us there. We dug in the sand, put our toes in the water, learned the joy of burying our feet, and concluded the fun with a walk around the pond. That night was Scouts for Ben (and Benji) and Pack Meeting for the kids and I (because I am the new Wolf Den Leader!!) I had a 10pm soccer game in which I really agitated the 3 new blisters on my feet – we tied 4-4 after being ahead 4-1 at half 🙁
Wednesday we went to play group in the morning and then I went to a late lunch with Amelia. We downed some Costa Vida at 3pm so I called that dinner and warned Ben that there would be nothing on the table when he got home. We took it easy the rest of the afternoon. We played video games and read books and just chilled as a family until my soccer game at 8:30. The kids all came to watch, but we still lost our first tournament game 🙁 We needed LaNell but she’s off in Kansas doing who knows what! My heals are covered in blisters at this point and it hurts to walk but my leg injury seems to be a lot better. Ben and I finally watched True Grit that night.
Thursday we chilled all morning and then went to Trafalga in Lehi with Jamie and kids. We rode the airplanes and the carousel. We did a round of outside bake in the sun miniature golf. We played at the playground then the big kids did a round of Laser Tag, Packer did “Glow Up” Golf and Cali and Anna, Moms and Babies watched him. We had to stop at Maceys on the way home for some dinner ingredients and this mom finally did the shop with ice cream cones in hand. I always thought that was a little crazy and it was BUT it tasted yummy and we got our groceries and everyone survived. Dinner was yummy. We watched to see where Jimmer would get drafted and Ben was on the phone all night trying to figure out what to do about Scout Camp cancelling their week.
Friday, Today we got up and loaded the van for 7 Peaks! We got there and settled and in the water at 11am and it was PACKED. My kids always want the Lazy River first so we did that and Michelle and her kids were with us. We tried the slides kid area but Cali doesn’t do well in that one so we spent most of the day in the other kid area and in the lazy river. Benji was excited to be able to go with the bigger cousins on a few slides and by themselves in the lazy river. We lasted until about 2:30 and the little ones were exhausted. We love having a PASS this year but so does the rest of Utah. You can expect a crowd. I’m sure it being Friday and 95 degrees added to that but I did run into all of my Robertson Cousins! Ian, Scott, Danny, their wives and kids, that was fun. Now it is nap time. We have a ward party at 6:00 and then we’ll call it a night.
