Wood chips, pool, choosing a game, and a pie.

Good morning, it is Sunday.

Friday evening we (except Preston who went to the movies with friends...but you expected that didn't you?)went to a friend's house to help spread 15 yards of wood chips around the base of an huge new play structure going in their back yard. 15 yards is a lot of wood chips. But it went quickly thanks to a bunch of kids, shovels, wheelbarrows, and adults. The dinner and the company was totally worth the hard work.

Yesterday it was a fun day. We spent the bulk of the day at the pool along with Stef, Mel, Court, John, Carol, Jack and Avery. Lots of swimming, playing, and eating chips.

After the pool I took Hansen to the game store to choose any video game he wanted. His pay for being a good helper on the deck project! Kids these days do have to learn quickly how to make up their minds, just looking at this picture makes me feel bad for what commercialism has done to us...and this is only one part of one wall in the store. Yikes.

For dinner we (except for Preston who went to a young life BBQ with some friends...but you expected that didn't you?) went to Shari's! And we even bought a PIE! Smores Pie, yum.

See you tomorrow.

Sounds like a fun day and a good idea for a wood chip project. I didn't know they made that many video games.
