I tried to post what we did yesterday to kick off our summer vacation, but the video didn't download all the way, and the Internet kept kicking my post out. Then I thought that if any of my kids want to run for office someday, maybe I should hold off posting. It's nothing risque, just a music video that will someday embarrass them.
We watched the Miss America pageant on Sunday. Our friend Kendyl Bell is Miss Utah. Although she didn't get far, she is amazing and is certainly a great role model for young girls. The pageant viewing "inspired" my girls to hold their own beauty pageant complete with music video. They were really funny and had choreographed moves, and they wanted me to post it, but this is my blog not theirs, so it was kismet that the uploading process didn't work out well.
In any case, we started off our Summer Vacation with said video, some friends, a trip to Chick Fil A for lunch, some homemade play-doh--recipe to come and a bit of math practice --cuz our times tables need some support during the summer. It was a rather busy day, but everyone had fun.
Day 2 brought on more friends and a relaxing afternoon watching "Hugo." I know it's been out for awhile, but truly a beautiful story, family friendly, and amazing cinematography. Highly recommended.
Until tomorrow's adventure....making more memories.
