How I Spent my Summery Weekend

Bob took this past Friday off of work and we decided to go down to DC to the Smithsonian. We went to the Air and Space Museum. I visited there very briefly 13 years ago this very month on my 8th grade graduation trip. There seemed to be quite a few kids there on similar types of trips.

We had a fun time. Jaide and Kiree wore matching shirts. We didn't get a picture of the three of us girls in our (sorta) matching white bucket hats.

We found a table tucked away in the back of the food court and ate our sandwiches we brought from home.

We tried to come home and quickly to make desserts for the ward activity. We ended up being about 45 minutes late- brownies take a long time to cook! Bob made the secret family recipe pineapple upside down cake, I made cream cheese brownies. They didn't quite turn out as planned but they still tasted alright. (pictured: me pointing to the picture in the cookbook and what they ended up looking like)

This week we also purchased a new addition to our family. Our old snail, Dora died and we needed a new one. We had to go to three pet stores to finally find one that had snails in stock but we got this yellow guy who Jaide named "From Thirsty" So that's what we call him.

Saturday we all went to the temple (I took the girls to Ikea while Bob did a session). Then we cleaned the ward building. We were very tired!

What do you mean you took a lunch in? Why didn't you buy a $10 burger? Chris loves the Air & Space museum. Every time we go to DC we have to stop in there. Glad you had some family fun time.

It's that Bob of mine, he doesn't believe in buying food at places, even when it's fairly cheap :)- But he did make us all really good sandwiches, like Subway only better.

poor jaide is really having some trauma lately! a tick, some dying sims, and a dead dora snail. i hope she's recovering. btw... what does "from thirsty" mean?

Dora died a little while back now. Jaide wasn't too upset about it. She doesn't seem to get too upset about the fish dying. I have no idea where Jaide got the name "From Thirsty" from. My guess is that it's just her silly things she comes up with to say when she can't think of real things to say. I interpreted it as "from thirsty" and she said yeah.
