Movie Review





Ok, so in the last two days I have seen two movies, one with my kids and one with friends. On Monday, we took the girls to see Space Chimps....don't waste your money. We went because we had some free passes and the girls really wanted to see it. If your kids want to see it, convince them to see something else. About the only good thing from this movie, were the quite disturbing chimp masks the girls receievd at the theatre and really that's all they remember either.

The other movie I saw was Mama Mia with some friends from San Marcos and it was great! Just your typical cheezy musical with great ABBA music. I really wish I could have been dancing in the aisled! I truly believe my life was meant to be lived in a musical like this or Enchanted.....but I don't ever get the orchestra que out of mid air to start singing...maybe one day it will happen.

Also, the song from mother to daughter is very touching...really did bring tears to my eyes.

My Footprints
Someday I'll jump through puddles, take a stroll or run a race.

Someday I'll walk across the street or maybe walk in space.

Someday I'll scale a mountain or explore the ocean floor.

Someday I'll kick a ball in hopes that I will score.

Someday these feet will do some things that only heaven knows, but for today they're happy, just to wiggle all ten toes!

Ward Luau

On Saturday, we went to our ward's luau for a wonderful dinner and authentic entertainment. We ate pig that was cooked all day in the ground. The girls were quite fascinated by the large hole in the ground where the pig was. They couldn't beleive that the massive piles of shredded pork really did come from a live pig that was cooked only a few feet away from where we ate. It was fun to get outside on a beautiful night and have fun. Tyler slept most of the time and is still such a sweet baby.

Tyler's Blessing Day

This past Sunday, July 6th, David blessed Tyler. It was a beautiful day. (Besides church being at 9:00 and I barely made it there with the baby for his own blessing). I was touched to look up and see so many men in my family who hold the priesthood and were able to be a part of it. I wasn't sure what I wanted him to be blessed in. I didn't wan't anything too girly or too old fashioned, but I wanted it to look nice. My mom ended up making him his darling little outfit, and because of David's request she added the bowtie at the last minute, even though I didn't want it. But...I am very lucky to have such a talented mother who takes time to sew things for all of us. Sunday night, we had both our families over for a Hawaiian Haystack Celebration. It was so much fun to have soo many people in our backyard....we're thinking at least 40-50? We are so lucky to have so many of our family members close to us. What a wonderful support system David and I have as we raise our children here. What a special day for our family. I can't believe he's almost six weeks old already.
