Memorial Weekend Preview
I have some really cute pictures from today, but I am too weary to go get the cord and the camera, etc. because at 6:30 am I went to tennis lesson/work out with the ladies, then by 9 the kids and I were up at Red Butte for a gorgeous and awesomely lonesome morning stroll and hike, then we came back to nap P, then went out again, picked up some Wendy's (I totally blame my latest affinity for Wendy's on Liz by the way), and headed to the zoo for a quick picnic, animal tour, playground play, and elephant show. AK and I are heading to the temple tonight, thanks to Dori Lu and her entertaining the kids' skills. We are gearing up for some cemetery visits (we will plan on going to the usual 5 sites) this weekend. The kids are strangely excited. They know and love these visits, more for the little lamby by the SL Cemetery Stayner obelisk and all of the pinwheels by Marjorie and of course picking the flowers for all of the sites. But I tend to think they like the stories about their Grandpa's Uncle, their Great Grandparents, and Great Great Great ancestors (with the multiple wives and such, but I don't think we've gotten that far in conversation about it yet!). Did I mention we didn't have school today...I know we should've left early and snagged some Memorial Day Moab camping sites or something vacationy/productive. Oh well, it is nice to be home and motivate AK to work on the yard. I know that sounds rude, but I really don't think I am allowed to touch the broken sprinkler, but I did plant my nurtured veggie seedlings this week. They are looking good.
