I Have Been Forced To Eat My Words

If you would have told me two weeks ago that I would like the St. George Pool I would have laughed my guts out. For the 12 years we have lived here I haven't ever taken my kids to this pool because it looked, put it nicely.....a little rugged and spooky. I thought it would be dirty, grose, and not appealing at all. A couple of weeks ago we had a Beehive Super Activity and my advisor and very good friend Melanie suggested we take the girls to this pool. She went on and on about how nice it is and how it has a kiddie pool for the little kids and the older kids love the hydrotube. I looked at her like she had lost her marbles. I didn't want to take my kids to this pool let alone other peoples kids. But she is the boss, so she won and we took the girls there.

(this is where I swallow a lump of pride soup) It is the BEST pool ever! So today I met Melanie and Amy and their kids and we visited while they played. Bay and Logan both brought friends so they were entertained while I was at the kiddie pool with Mia. In fact, I stayed an extra hour and half after Mel and Amy watched Mia splash and swim her little heart out. What a great day!!

The Three Muskeeters playing Ring around the Rosies in the pool. MOST of the times these
three are really good friends. :)
 Logan really is a sweet kid. He kept on coming over to sit by me. I think
he really just wanted to make sure I was still close by....or he wanted two bucks for a sno cone!
Bay and her friend Treena. They live a couple blocks away from eachother and never play
during the school year but once summer hits, they are unseperable! They are so sweet and had a
great time swimming.

So after all that, if you are ever in St. George Utah, first give me a call, then we can go to the best kept secret in St. George!

Wanna Play Spoons?

I am not a very competitive person when it comes to playing games with other people. I am usually a good winner and a good loser. But put me in a circle with 10 other people, 3 decks of cards, and 9 spoons, things will get a little intense. Each time the circle of people got smaller and smaller after people would get out, my heart would race a little faster, my focusing ability would kick in, and before I knew it it had come down to me and a little 12 year old in the final round. Now typically I would go easy on a youngster but my insides just took me over and would NOT let me lose. I was focused, I was determined and therefore I became the SPOONS CHAMP!!! Not ONCE but TWICE.  So maybe, just maybe, I have a little competitive streak brewing inside of me waiting patiently to escape!
