On Tuesday Corbin and I slipped away the whole day. We went to Roaring Springs and had a blast. He got a free pass through his school and we went with our friends so I could get in half price. We hung out with my friend and her kids all day. We mostly did what they wanted to do. It was fun but I was pretty excited when they left at 5:00 because the rest of the time Corbin and I went on rides up until the park was almost closed. We had a blast. Corbin is barely tall enough to go on all of the rides and lucky for me he is super brave so we went on all them except for the ones that you wait in line just so you can terrifyingly free fall to the bottom landing with a major wedgy. No thank you! We had a great time, I think he and I should slip away sometime when we are in Salt Lake and have ourselves a day at Lagoon.
On Friday I was gone for a big part of the day taking care of the food for a funeral. I also went to a bridal shower that night. On Friday my mom called and asked if they could crash at our house on Saturday because she and my dad and my brother Keaton and my sister Trisha were coming over. They wanted to surprise my brother Hart and be there when he got called as a Bishop today. Hart called my parents and told them about it and my mom said they couldn't come because they were speaking in church this Sunday. When she got off the phone my dad said they couldn't miss that so they got our of their speaking assignments and decided to make it a surprise. Keaton and Trisha drove to my parents house from Rexburg and Rigby and jumped in the car with them. They came over and we went and saw Lance and Katie's new house and then went and stuffed our faces at The Golden Corral. After that we came back to my house. It was a beautiful evening so we went and spent some time at DeMeyer park. When we got home we watched the movie based on the true story and book called The Prize Winner of Definace, Ohio. We all enjoyed that. Trisha and Keaton had the pleasure of sleeping on our triple bunk bed. Ha.
We got up and headed over to Hart's 9:00 am sacrament meeting. He was very surprised to see all of us. The sacrament meeting was very good with the old Bishop and his wife speaking and with Hart and Jory speaking. After he was set apart we came back to my house and had a delicious lunch that my mom had prepared and then they headed out.
Another exciting thing is that my dad was called as a temple sealer in the Idaho Falls temple a few months ago. He was also just recently called as the first counselor in the temple presidency. This will bring some changes to my parents lives. They may have to get a hired hand to work the farm and they may have to get an apartment in Idaho Falls as they will be serving in the temple 3 days a week. It should be interesting for sure.
Oh and lastly we had a few tithing miracles this week. Our starter engine on our van broke down. We were going to have to pay for a tow truck and pay for a new part totaling around $470. Scott decided to call a guy in our ward to come and check it out and he was able to buy the part at a discount and fix it for us right in our garage. He didn't even want to get paid but Scott paid him anyway. With the part and labor it cost us only $170. Sweet. Also we were trying to get on a payment plan at St. Lukes for our Ryan bill and they sent us a letter reducing his bill by $3,770. Amazing! In not so exciting news our second flat screen TV died on us this week. So annoying! We moved our little bedroom TV out to the front room. I'm not in any hurry to go and buy another brand new TV. We don't seem to have good luck with those.
Corbin: "That is seriously dangerous."
"Gabby it's really heavy. It weighs like a pound."
Piper coming down the hall, "mommy here I am."
"He is a rascally little devil."
"Mom, I was crying and freaking out and throwing a tantrum."
(Ryan was crying in the car) "Don't be a whiny pants."
|Corbin likes to trap Ryan. It's pretty funny.|
