*Yep. We did this again. This time with the Smith's. This is what you do when you don't have a pool and you live in the South...and it is the hottest summer ever...and you want to go outside but you can't do it with out getting sprayed with a hose.
*Summer in the South: waiting in the parking lot at the grocery store to see if the rain will stop. It will because it is just because of the humidity being soooo high the sky just can's hold it in any more. *Laundry day. We bought new towels because our old ones were...old and we didn't have enough. Now we have enough but they are all dirty. *Jake and Aaron checking out something on the computer. *The Activity Day Girls sending mom and :we miss you: message when she was in VT. *Fruit pizza. Again. *Riding the Rail Trail. Jake road his bike and I rented one. Don't let this picture fool you-I was in the lead most of the time!
Gravatopia!!! The greatest place ever! We moms that watched decided that if they had a mom's night they would have to hand out Depends at the door because we would all be peeing our pants. Oh to be young and have command of your bladder! This was after hours. The people that own Gravatopia are members of the church and let the Youth from the Stake go jump for free from 9-10:30 a couple of Wednesday's ago. Jake brought his friend Carter (Smith-he was one of the boys jumping on the trampoline at our house a couple of posts ago. He has on the yellow shorts. Jake has on the green shirt and gray shorts) and of course met up with friends there.
(I forgot....I am so out of order...This was the night of his first day of school. 8/5)
*Jake wanted a house key. He has been wanting one for a long time. So while I was at Lowe's getting some paint (I am going to paint the hall and the bathroom) I decided to copy my key and they had Star Wars keys for 50 cents more than regular ones. I was sold, but knew Aaron would be very jealous so I got one for him too. Jake was happy. He has since lost it (he swears he will find it). And this is why you don't really need a house key when you don't have a car key to attach it to.
*Jake slept in one morning (after having worked with Papa Harmon four days straight at the fixer upper house) so I made him breakfast in bed.
*Pico de gallooooh! The rewards outweigh the risks. I really did a dozy on my finger. I cut off a good portion of my nail and several layers of skin under it. I was using the proper technique and everything!
*We went with the Smith's to Greenville to a water park and it was tons of fun!
*We played Settler's Of Catan..and no they didn't plan to match.
