2nd week of vacation

At the end of the first week, we returned to Mr. M's grandma's house with his immediate family. That's his parents, older brother, younger sister and her 3 kids, and youngest sister and her husband and 5 kids. It got very crowded and noisy in that little house. Luckily, Mr. M has an aunt who lives 5 minutes away, and she invited the 3 of us to sleep at her house each night. So we got some peace and quiet each night and didn't have to fight over who got to use the bathroom next. It was so nice....

The guys got to golfing again- Mr. M had a great time again. We've both decided that if we had the time and money, we could get into golfing. Of course, we would need a lot of practice, since neither of us is very good.

I got my very first pedicure, which was an enjoyable experience. Not sure why it's taken me this long. Probably has something to do with my funky, short toes and not wanting to draw attention to them. Too late now!

The city Mr. M's grandma live in has a great trail system next to the river, and it's close to where she lives. Last year, LMS and I went running on it; this year we went for another run, and a bike ride. Mr. M, his brother, LMS, and I went for a 20 mile bike ride. Longest ride I've ever gone on, and so much easier than a 20 mile ride here would have been. We have too many hills out here for a 20 mile ride to be easy. It was a nice ride, and a nice day for it.

We also got to go swimming at another aunt's house. It felt so good after the bike ride, and everyone had lots of fun.

We went to see the new Harry Potter movie with Mr. M's brother. It was enjoyable, just don't get hung up on the differences from the book.

We were also able to go to the Temple with Mr. M's parents and grandmother (his brother left his recommend at home in his bag, so didn't get to go), which was a good experience (of course!).

LMS and her cousin who's a month and a half older than her (let's call him Little Mister Mischievious) had a great time playing together the whole time we were together. While we were camping, it wasn't uncommon to see the two of them holding their little folding camp chairs and hauling them from one place to another. No idea why, but they must have thought it was fun, since they kept doing it.

LMS is eating ice cream, LMM has a binder clip in his mouth (why??). great expressions on both faces!

LMS and LMM twirling on a chair, great big smiles on both- they're having a blast!
