-Sean coming over for dinner on Friday...not only did we get to catch up, but he also got to witness the Jordan El at it's finest and he would concur that it is indeed the "boil on the butt of humanity".-Saturday morning family sealings in the new Oquirrh Mt. Temple.
-Watching Roy baptize the youth. Roy said he felt very nostalgic being able to do for his young men what his leaders did for him.
-Realized for the thousandth time that Roy and I are pretty much unlike anyone in our ward. I think more times than not we are seen as the young punks instead of the adult leaders that we are, but I wouldn't want it any other way. We. Are. Fun! -Irish baby blessing. Charlie is here to stay and we are stoked about that!
-"Spaniard Towers" or at least that's what John called them. Tradition in Spain in which towers are constructed out of humans...our towers were only 2 people tall, but still quite the feat.
-Competitive water sports.
-BBQ on the patio, watching the stars, and good chats in the warm darkness with old and new friends.
-Falling asleep content and happy next to sweets.
This weekend summed up....JOY!

That's right folks: Among the "firsts" of this year...our first ever, very own business license. We are pretty stoked about this baby seeing as it's the gateway for us to progress. We have christened our new business "Elevated Racing". We started it with the intent to do race timing of all varieties, but we are also dabbling in a few other ideas. The equipment has yet to be purchased, but this seems to make this venture of ours just that more real.
Besides the obvious excitement around here. I'm also looking at this baby and getting some fun ideas to infuse it with a little more life. I think the idea will be fabulous, but we will have to see if my vision for this dull little wall is as great in real life.
Now back to the brown rice and Italian chicken.

This happens all too frequently at the store. I'm sitting their doing the numerous things that must be done before one can leave with ones purchased goods. Transactions must be made, pins imputed, receipts given...nothing out of the ordinary right? Than why must the person behind me insist on pushing themselves into my bubble. It's not going to make me go any faster so relax and step off!

Last night while cleaning my bread knife I accidentally sliced the tip of my finger....the middle one at that. The cut itself is not bad, it's the blasted band-aid. I struggled the whole day when I went to go write something I had to consciously think about how to place my fingers. It was like learning how to write all over again...very annoying. On the positive side though it brought me back to the reality that I take so much for granted...including holding a writing utensil. I'm very fortunate and I often forget all the intricate details my capable body can preform. When you start to think about it's pretty dang cool!
