Eli had his first sleep over this weekend. I heard some noise at one in the morning, long after I had gone to bed. I assumed that one of them was upset and I would be having to make a late night drive to get Caleb home. Nope...instead I find them terrorizing the kitten. So several bags of popcorn and a package of oreo cookies later they finally fell asleep.

Since our last shed got blown away in a bad wind storm early last year we have been needing a new one. Chuck has been working on it this last week, with some help from his dad visiting us from California. Eli and Abby have been a lot of help. I will post more pictures when it is done.

Bad planning on my part. After coming home from Girl's Camp I thought it would be fun to go to Clear Creek Metro Park. I didn't take into consideration that a huge rain storm had hit the day before. The clear creek was a muddy river! Oh well, all the better to make mud pies in.

Dinner and a Movie

There is a great retro drive in not too far from us in Lancaster. The kids had a fun time watching Up. It has been a long time since I have been to a drive in. It was a great family home evening activity. But warning... the movies start really late, like 10:30 pm. By the time you get through the second showing it is hard to drive home.
