When The Family Gets Together
...and we learn to love each other popping corn and having fun....as the song goes. We didn't pop corn this time, but we all had a lot of fun during our week together. We visited Kennecott Copper Mine, a mini-Grand Canyon, went to a water party in the park, and ate hot dogs and potato chips and ice cream. We went swimming. We set off alka-seltzer rockets in the front yard, and flew styrofoam birds in the air. We "went to Mexico," as Simon says (actually, a Mexican restaurant) and stuffed ourselves full, had a terrific bar-b-que with sushi and watermelon, celebrated Bookworm and Starfsh's birthdays with cake and ice cream and lots of presents, found a mouse in the backyard, had a mouse funeral with flowers and a mouse elegy. Issac made a wonderful dinosaur with sticks and tape --see, it has a long tail, two big back legs and two small front legs, even tusks! Ate again at a cowboy buffet (we ate a lot), talked a lot, laughed a lot, and loved our week together. Good times like crazy!
