Another one down!!

Okay so this weekend was a lot of fun!! We had Hyrum's baptism. It was fantastic. He chose who did what and then we called and asked everyone to help. It turned out great. Thanks to all who helped us!! After the baptism we had a luncheon that was very nice and very low-key (ie simple). Gotta love Raley's deli department...their meat trays rock!!

Then we came home for a few minutes, and packed up the kids to go visit Aunt Robin at a sprinkler park in Folsom. It was sooo much fun!! The biggest problem: Gloria kept leaving. She wanted to hunt for snakes. Apparently a little ways from us was a sign that said "Caution, Rattlesnake area." There were "big" kids that were looking at the edge of the tall grass for snakes and Gloria thought that sounded like a great idea.

Sunday we had a great time at church!! It is amazing to me that there are so many people in our ward that think our kids are so well behaved! During sacrament meeting, I took Nephi out for screaming and climbing under the pews and then David had to follow with Gloria. She just doesn't get the word quiet. I think that she thinks it means, "I'm sorry, I couldn't understand what you just said. Could you please repeat it as loud as you can?" Because I have older kids who have been through this before I have hope that soon she will get it, but it seems to be taking a long time!!

After church we got to come home and visit with Grandma and Grandpa Cox. I really think that they are great!! We love it when they come to visit. In fact the kids love it so much that Faith and Hyrum were hoping that "maybe their plane would get frozen for 2 days and then they would have to stay with us longer." Kinda funny those kids of mine.

Two weeks until school starts....YEA!!! We are starting to back onto a schedule this week...wish us luck!! I look forward to getting more accomplished and becoming more organized.

thanks for the nice report Kaci. We enjoyed our time there. Wish it could be more often. Guess that is why Yosemite is so important to us.
