Hmm, I think I need to have a new saying besides, "I'm not your slave." Suggestions?

The first one was that Logan changed his name. On Monday at his first day of camp the coaches asked Logan his name and he replied that his name was on his glove. They said what your name is Franklin? (That's the name on the gloves.) Logan said no, my name is Logan. They spent the whole day picking on him and his name.
He told Phil that his after baseball camp is over his coaches are going to take him camping in a tent. Of course that is news to his coaches.

My friend Kim always has some great words and one of my favorites is jocularity. She shared this video with me that shows the evolution of dance. This person is a motivational speaker and friend of Kim's husband. If watching this doesn't make you laugh then I don't know what to say. Hope this increases your jocularity.

We love you and wish you a Happy Anniversary!
I love you dear more than I did when we said I do 14 years ago. Here's to at least another 14 more years of wedded bliss. I love you!
Logan has decided that he and Phil will be the Gladiators and the rest of us can compete against them. I'll be interested to see what "plans" are made while I'm in Salt Lake City attending a meeting.
All in all he's taking the news of not being able to swim pretty well. Kayla says she won't swim until he can or at least not in our pool and she's secretly hoping a friend with a pool will invite her over for a swim.

Just got another camp photo to share. I dont' think she's going to want to come home when we go to pick her up tomorrow. Maybe if we tell her a trip to Six Flags is in her future she'll want to come (Logan wants to go every day and keeps asking to go).
I didn't sign up to see the photos from Camp Meriweather but now I wish I had. Amy (Kayla's friend Madison's mom) sent me a link to this photo of Kayla in the horse barns. It sure looks like she's having fun to me. Tonight's the last night of camp for her and we go pick her up tomorrow. It sure will be nice to have her home. I can't wait to hear about all the fun she's had.

What is Phil doing with these boys while he's home alone with them??????
I know she'll have fun because she'll get to work with horses two hours a day plus choose from tons of fun other activities. I can't wait to hear all about it when we pick her up on Friday. Of course meanwhile we'll miss having her around. I wonder if this is what it will feel like when she leaves for college?

You'd think we'd get some perks with A/C here, huh? It better still work tomorrow as tomorrow's high is 93!
The second party of the week was for Kayla (OF COURSE!). This year she had a just a sleepover party. That was Sunday starting at 4 p.m. The event started with everyone trying out the Wii Fit and then taking a dip in our little pool. The girls had fun swimming and doing a whirlpool. Then it was time for some chips/veggies and cheese dip and more Wii Fit fun. But they were STILL hungry so I had to feed them some chocolate fondue with strawberries, marshmallow, rice krispie treats, pineapple, and angel food cake. That resulted in some fun faces covered in chocolate.
After a lot of Wii playing and decorating their own pillow cases the girls decided to watch the 5th Harry Potter movie. Who knew that 7 Girls could squish onto our couch? I'm not sure what happened after about 10:30 that night as I was getting boys to bed but I'm assured by Kayla that they all had a good time!
This seems to be the week of parties at our place. It started on Saturday. Alex got to have a little bit of early birthday fun. Since his birthday is in July he never has a party with any of his friends from school because he stays home with Phil in the summer. This year Alex asked for a friend birthday party. So we gathered up his friends and went to Jungle Jump Adventures for an hour and half party. It really is fun and there is no set up or clean up. The kids got to run around and have fun. The party size wasn't too big - only 10 kids but they all had fun. I think Alex's favorite part was the presents.
