Perfected the art of catching poly wogs,
Enjoyed the amazing Nevada sunsets,
Shot at cans with a bb gun,
Caught horny toads the size of quarters,
Caught big, huge horny toads,
Played on the rope swings and trampoline for hours,
Fed the cows squash and castrated a bull,
Did I mention we did A.L.O.T of swimming??!!
We pulled out the sweetest of wallpapers at Grandmas house. If you are feeling like you would like to wallpaper your dining room with some of this just let me know. I will bring the sweetness to your house, free of charge.
I thought Nevada was great. I failed to mention all the star-gazing at night and the dodging of bats at dusk. Really what I'm trying to say here, if you are interested in doing a bunch of "nothing" then come join us next time.

Just a word to your mother, don't go golfing when clouds are ominous like that. There is a reason why we were the only ones out on the course.

G: I look terrible.
Me: No you don't Grandma!
G: I have a terrible smile, it doesn't look natural.
Me: (Did I just hear that right, after 92 years you are still worried about your smile. I thought a person stopped caring at 60.) Grandma! You are 92, I think you look great! Plus, nobody else cares what your smile looks like except you.
G: You mean after 93 years?? (She turns 93 in a month)
After the conversation, I decided I had to start being happy with how I look right now. Time doesn't change how I feel about myself, only I change that. I am always looking to be a little bit skinnier, a little bit stronger but every year I look back and wish I would have been happy with how "skinny" or "strong" I was the year before.
If only I could have appreciated my body when I was 25, but of course I didn't. So today, I will be happy with my 35 year old body because in 10 years I will wish I would have put on the string bikini and ran down the street in it. OK, maybe I will NEVER wish that but you get my point! Be happy with what you have right now or never be happy!!
Here's to us Grandma!!

We jump on the tramp, scream and yell, laugh our heads off and wake up the entire neighborhood!!!
I just checked my phone messages before jumping on the computer. Someone had called Mr.C and left him a message. I have no idea who it was but they informed him that "Sally(name changed to protect the innocent) loves you". Now, as a mom, I think Conner is adorable. What mother doesn't think their child is, right?? I'm starting to think some of the girls have my same opinion.
I had another girl call and ask for Mr. C, please remember that Mr C is only 10 years old, about a week ago. It just so happened that Mr C was gone with his dad. I asked the caller if I could take a message, of course she giggled and asked if Mr C could call her back!!! Oh brother, of course N.O.T.
Then, about 2 weeks prior to that I had 3 girls attack him at the pool. Those girls followed him around like he was a magnet, he could not escape. Now, don't get me wrong, he was smiling from ear to ear. After we left, he informed me that the girls liked him. In a nice way, I told him just because a girl follows you around doesn't mean she likes you!! This is where the conversation got good, he informed me he didn't make any assumptions, the girls told him they had "crushes" on him. UGH!! What's next??

Does anyone know what to do with lots of cherries?

As we are going along I look back and see Little T tumbling out of the golf cart and then the golf cart start rolling backwards. At this point, I am afraid for his little life but he jumps up, runs to the cart and applies the parking brake, like this is no big deal.
So I decide to start watching him to find out what is really going on. The next stop I witness the following......
His dad didn't seem to be phased by the actions, kind of like this is what everybody does when exiting a golf cart. Oh well, he didn't get ran over this trip so I guess I won't be troubled by it either.

Just as a side note here, I love cousin Amy. If you need a date for your good looking single male friends you know who you can call!!! I mean really, just look at her hair.
Anyway, from all the texts and picture texts that I have rec'd, Paige is having a major party in California!

After the balloons, we made a pancake breakfast and enjoyed the nice sun on the back porch. After awhile, we decided to take off to Heber with our neighbors and do some motorcycle riding. When we left it was cloudy, I should have been prepared for the downpour of rain, but I wasn't. Being the "good" mom that I am I was totally UN-prepared. I didn't bring any jackets, let alone "rain" jackets. We were all soaked but laughing and having fun either way. It was a great day.
