Family Fun Night

Lots going on around here - no need to blog it all - just trust me that the pace is a bit crazier than we plan to maintain long term. ::snort::  It's also been an emotional week with parish events. 

In any event, we were ALL, looking forward to Friday Family Night. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner....and then went outside and chatted... these two invented this game.....suck water up the noodles and shoot it at each other....

...while these two chatted and practiced the Rubik...

...Then these two invented a game where one asks a question and if the answer is wrong you get doused...the yard is browning up and so we figured playing with the water wasn't much different than turning the sprinkler on - just in case any CA water Nazis are about to turn us in. 


She ASKED for this! 

Stacia jumped into the hot tub after this. We continued chatting. It was too windy to light the fire ring to make s'mores so Michael suggested I make "indoor s'mores" - I did and surprised the kids.  Yep - "this summer we are living life fully one s'more at a time."  I don't often have them but had 1/2.....




This girl has persistent asking down (Luke 18?)....but we've been trying to teach her to NOT ASK and let her parents just bless her sometimes too....she can trust her parents to bless her. It was great that she'd forgotten to ask today for s'mores - it's a daily request. She was thrilled.
