Cocina del Diablo

Happy Canada Day (July 1) to all my friends from and in Canada.
On a different note, we decided to go on a picnic today.  We drove up Nebo Loop and stopped at Devil's Kitchen.  We walked over to see the land formations and Jeremy took pictures of green-tailed towhees which were everywhere.
We walked back and had our picnic at the picnic tables.  Then we drove home.
This evening, we went to visit some friends.  One of them is going to be going on a mission soon so they had a farewell game night for her since she loves playing games.
Good times.  Good times.

Primary Activity

This evening we were able to go to a ward Primary activity.
The kids rotated to different rooms where some of the teachers talked about where they served their missions.  Some had activities for the kids to do, some had treats from that area.
While he was on his mission, Jeremy liked to find out what different animals were called in Hungarian.  He put together a handout with a few animals and taught the kids how to pronounce the Hungarian words for these animals.
It went well.  It was a good Primary activity.  Our kids also enjoyed it.

The KAT's Meow

While watching an Ewok movie and a creature howled-
Jr.:  Shouldn't he be howling at the ground?
Nichole and Mom:  Whaaaaa?
Jr.:  Shouldn't he be howling at the ground... because Endor is a moon.
Nichole and Mom:  Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.
Jr.:  What?  I know my Star Wars.

Quick... Gotta Catch Up Again

We celebrated National Chocolate Pudding Day on June 26 by having... chocolate pudding.
We had friends visit us and ate 7-layer dip.
The kids made snakes at Cub Scout Pack Meeting where Jr. got several belt loops and got to show some musical instruments from around the world he made.
And sometimes people are not cooperative when you want to take a picture with them.
Oh, and Nichole is becoming even more musical.

Dinosaur Museum with Friends

It's been years since we'd seen some of our friends from our early married days.  Good friends, before any of us had any children.  Now we each have four.  Our friends took a trip to Utah and we got to meet up with them at the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point.  It was so fun.  It was so easy to get back into chatting about things, just like when we'd lived near each other years and years ago.
The kids had fun running around.  They especially enjoyed anything with screens. 
Oh, I'm so glad our friends visited.

Celebrating with Chocolate... Again

June 16 was National Fudge Day.  I went to Girls' Night and brought homemade fudge- almond joy fudge.  Yumm.  There were leftovers so my family got some, too.
June 18 was Father's Day.  I didn't take pictures but the kids had wrapped little peanut butter cups in foil and while Jeremy was taking a nap and I was making dinner, they created a trail from where he was sleeping on the bed through the hall and the living room, into the kitchen and over to the freezer.  Inside the freezer was a bag of Reese's Pieces that said Happy Father's Day on it.
Jeremy woke up because he shifted in his sleep and knocked some of the peanut butter cups off the bed.  The kids had surrounded him while he was sleeping.
He enjoyed what the kids did for him.  Good job, kids.  And good job, Jr., for coming up with the idea.  You have such great creativity.
