Summer Shenanigans

We spent a lot of time bowling this summer, we went with friends and used our free passes almost every week.  Of course we did some other fun things too, I'll add pictures as I come across them.

Cheap Cheap

There are some people that are always telling me I'm cheap, and maybe that's true although I would prefer the term "frugal"! That being said, we do have fun taking advantage of the free and cheap events around town.  We made sure to hit IHOP on the 56 cent pancake day and of course we always hit Cow Appreciation day for free food and Chik-fila!  We actually had 3 different meals at Chik-fila that day by visiting the different locations and we also got our free slurpees for 7-11 day.  Not only is this all cheap, it's also fun!

Missionary Scum

One night we had the missionaries over for dinner and they had some time to kill before a fireside they were speaking at so we played some Scum.  These two Elders were in our area for a long time so we got to know them pretty well!

Sharing time

My calling at church right now is in the Primary Presidency which means I work with this kids.  I have to admit that the Sharing Time lessons are not my favorite part of the calling but every once in a while one seems to work out that the kids love!  For this lesson, I set up Sam in a picture frame as a TV interviewer to ask the kids questions about baptism and the kids seemed to love it.  They also loved this huge remote control that Jordan made for my lesson!

Eden has become our resident bread maker, she loves it and will make it almost everyday without any help if we think about it and of course we are all enjoying it!

Birthday Boy

Sam was pretty busy during the weeks around his birthday so we didn't end up doing a whole lot of celebrating, but of course we went out and he got a fit bit which he has been wearing everyday.  It's been fun to see how many steps he takes at different places!  I posted these pictures of him that day!

My parents came down for the 4th of July weekend.  We went to the ward breakfast, where the primary sang My Country 'Tis of Thee and Sam signed the National Anthem. Grandpa and the kids or boys saw a couple of movies, the kids had fun playing with Kaylee and we headed down to a little children's museum in Temecula called Pennypickle's Workshop.
