A memorable Memorial Day in picture words..

Due to the fact that my handy dandy camera is not able to recharge right now, picture stories will have to suffice.
So, here is our wonderful Memorial Day in a nutshell. We started up by reinvigorating an old tradition from Morgan's family. We walked to breakfast first thing in the morning. The last time we did this we were living in Pocatello, Idaho, so it has been a while. We chose Carl's Jr. and ordered yummy choices such as French Toast sticks and Crescent sandwhiches. So, just picture all the kids with syrup dripping off their chins! And I figured out why the tradition is to walk to breakfast----- You really need a walk after all that grease!!!

Then we set off to get our shopping done at Walmart. I don't remember the workers there looking like this, but maybe they did look this way after my crazy kids left.......

Then, we headed over to Morgan's sister's house to check on our lab Brody. He didn't look quite like this, but he was pretty excited to see us. And the Garino's have been so great to him! They said they are a dog boarding house lately since two extra dogs are there right now.
Here is a dipiction of our happy dog!!!

Then we got really brave, and ventured to Hamilton High School to swim in their pool. They have an amazing pool, but it seems like everyone in the Valley figured out that secret about the same time we did. It was cheap, but it was packed to capacity and it was very hard to keep track of our little ones. We only lasted about an hour until our eyes were fried from too much searching. The kids really, really loved the slides, diving boards and lazy river. I was really, really scared to even think of how many germs were floating by us.......aaaaahhhhhh germs get away!!!
We finished off the day with a fun Family Home Evening playing this wonderful game!!! Somehow, Will beat us all!!! Sarah was in charge of treats and picked out some great cookies at the store after much thought.
All in all, it was a wonderful holiday and today we were back to real life with Morgan back at work at me starting radiation. Thanks mom for babysitting!!!

good luck with radiation Christa. What do you expect it to be like? Does it put you down afterwards like Chemo? Let me know so I can pray for you!

Christa, you even managed to have appropriate pictures without a camera. You are remarkable. Thought about you many times yesterday. We are praying that you will have the BEST reaction possible to yur radiation. Love to you and MOrgan and your "kiddos"
