After dinner entertainment

Nothing quite like a light saber battle on your table after dinner.

New glasses

After several years of not going to the eye doctor, I finally made it yesterday. I apparently don't need a new perscription, but I think we're going with new glasses that are a bit less beat up. These frames (the ones I ultimately chose) are also titanium, so they should be a bit more durable, and hold up a bit better. Here's to hoping!

Bad News

I had a dentist appointment today, and this was the outcome. One deep cleaning required, and 5 fillings. Ouch, this is going to hurt :(

Cherry Jam!

We spent the afternoon at my parents house so Drew could change out the spark plugs on the car, and so that I could make some cherry jam. Both turned out pretty darn good :)

Chaco lines

It's definitely summer out, and that means Chaco's are for everything. :) Yay for super comfy durable sandals and exciting tan lines from them!

For sale

As I've been finishing up the last few things that need unpacking, I came across these. As much as I want to hold on to them for nostalgia's sake. I debated it for a long while, if I really should keep them or not. But honestly, as much as I loved that class, the chances of me using these again is slim. So, I came to the conclusion that I should probably sell them.

Gathering oppinions

I'm going to be making this into a blanket for J, and was trying to figure out the best way to quilt it to keep it together. The general opinion is to go around all of the major objects by hand. Glad I'm starting now, this could take a while. 

Rolling out dough

We were making pizza crusts, and sometimes Drew likes a really thin crust made with our noodle maker. So we tried it again today. J LOVED helping to roll out all the dough :)

Awesome park!

We went to a playgroup that the ward was doing today. I hadn't been to this park yet, and frankly, didn't even realize it existed. This park is HUGE! It has a huge grassy area in the middle, and in each corner, a different layout park! I've never seen anything like it before. We'll definitely need to go back!

While out on the playground today, J informed me that the holes in the structure were "emojies" I have no idea where he even heard the term, nor even if he knows what they really are. It was pretty funny. I kept trying to call them holes, and he was very insistent that no, mom, they are emojies.

Visiting Grandma Johnson's

We went down to visit Grandma Johnson today, and discovered she now has quite the backyard for kids. J LOVED this sandbox, and was very sad to leave it.

As is parts at IKEA

Yesterday, Drew took our car for a test drive to see what I meant by some problems I was describing having (which, of course, didn't show up for him) and he ended up at IKEA, and discovered this area of parts, which you can fill a bag with for just $3 a bag. We came back tonight to find some screws, and a bunch of allen wrenches, some nails, pull knobs, a bunch of stuff that we felt like grabbing that would be useful. It was an awesome find. We also ended up picking up some candles they had on clearance, and some drapes we've been wanting for our room. Overall, it was a great steal (eve if we probably shouldn't have spent the money)

DMV decorations

we went to the DMV today to register the car in Utah, and saw this in the entry way. It's pretty cool looking!

Workout buddies

J thought I needed some help doing exercises this morning. So, he brought me just a few workout buddies :)

Hot dog eating

if you can see it, yes, he is using two forks, one in front of the other, to eat his hot dog.

New park

We tried out a new park today, it's right next door to the library. It was pretty awesome.

Sunday walk

I stayed after church today to try out ward choir, and told Drew I would just walk home. This was a good part of my walk home. I was in heaven. :)

hat or coat or whatever rack

Drew has been looking for a rack to hang helmets on. We happened to be given this one, and it works perfectly.

Blaket cuddles

after quiet time J insisted on bringing out all the blankets (and pillows) to spread out all over the living room floor. And he proceeded to cuddle and roll all over them. It was pretty cute!

evening walk

Mom Baker and Shannon have been in town for the last week or so. When they've been around J has adored having Shannon here. We took a family walk tonight, along the canal by our house. It was nice to get out for a bit

Family picture

Bonnie Jean and Justin and family happened to be down in Salt Lake to see Amy Sue and Michael before they head on a country wide trip to find a new home. So we decided to head up and see everyone. We had a lot of fun, and J LOVED to play with T and L. We ended the fun evening with some almost complete family pictures. Of course, they all ended up a bit crazy. :)

we went to graduation for this wonderful lady today. J didn't much care for the actual graduation ceremony, and I have to admit, I don't remember my graduation feeling that long. But it was great to be able to get out and support Miss R. :)

Llama Llama

But not in red Pajama's! We took a different route home from the library today, since we were on bike, and I didn't feel like biking along the super noisy and busy main street. We discovered a llama by the elementary school. I was really amused, and J was super excited to see a real llama like in the awesome llama llama books. :)

Moving in party

Since we have a lot of family in town today, and are finally in a place we feel okay really inviting people over, we had family here for dinner tonight. We had a blast. Amy Sue happened to bring her computer to get help with it, and so we spent a while after dinner looking at old pictures. Man.... That was a lot of fun.
