Okay, some of you are going to think I'm cruel, but here is my recent summer highlight....the boys sitting on the couch complaining they're bored and there's nothing to do.
More than seven weeks into summer, with less than four weeks to go, I've been waiting for this moment. With all the fun we've managed to pack in including Mr. Biggs and movies and mini golf and the batting cages and trips to Costco and the mall, I thought we'd never be "bored"! Quite frankly, I'm a little exhausted. Shouldn't part of childhood be wrestling with boredom?
With that in mind I've been making Princess Rachel endure more of her brother's activities, like baseball and the batting cages. Not everything is about one person when you're in a family. Buck up, Rachel. Dance lessons will be figured out for fall, which is just around the corner!
In any case, I'm thrilled we finally had some boring moments here and survived them. :=)

I got this from Laura's blog. It seemed fun and novel since I haven't had a subscription to Seventeen magazine for over 20 years! There's nothing like a good quiz to determine who I really am...
You Are Pocahantas!
Free-spirited and wise. You have a strong passionate spirit that touches and changes all who know you. The wisdom and common sense that you have is really what guides you through life. Even so, you also have a very playful side that loves adventure and excitement.
Which Disney Princess Are You?
Rachel wanted to be a princess too, so here are her results. No suprise really...Sleeping Beauty is a favorite.
You Are Aurora! (A.K.A. Sleeping Beauty.)
Thoughtful and loving. Authority figures probably have been sheltering you all of your life. Thankfully you're a very tranquil person who is content with what life has given you, but secretly you want to know how the outside world works.
Which Disney Princess Are You?

We visited Utah on the spur of the moment...The kids and I loaded up and drove to Utah on Sunday June 29th; we left Dave here to work. Unfortunately, I did not document the trip very well with my camera so I don't have pictures of all the people we visited. Darn it. It took about 11 hours to get there because of all the stops, one of which being a fatal error on my part. I stopped for lunch at a Quiznos, right next to a GameStop. Not a very quick stop! Oh well. We left at 6am so it didn't seem so bad to arrive in time for dinner.
We saw my grandparents, Kent and Carolyn, Bob and Vicki, Troy and Allison for dinner. We visited "the Chrzanowskis" , as Dave likes to call them. We went to the Farmington pool with the Egans (always a crowd favorite). Spent the day with Sarah, and had tons of fun with Grandma and Papa including shelling peas, making cookies and brownies, going fishing, going to the movies, and building model army tanks. Thanks for the FUN!

Do you ever open your own blog hoping to find a new post, all the while knowing there won't be one because you haven't posted anything in a long while, but still hoping?
I need to document some of the fun we've had this summer but haven't posted...
Our third annual block party with many of our neighbors was June 21st. It was a fairly low-key event but fun. Next year we'll have to plan some entertainment for the kids (Jake did not run games this year as in years past). Dave has threatened to buy a "Catalina grill" for the next one so that everyone can come and grill their own entree. Sounds fantastic. See you next year!
That same day our good friend, Dave Owens, came for a visit. It was great to see him and hear about his exciting life and reminisce about "the old days". He was a good sport to come to our block party and keep us up laughing until midnight. Our kids think he is soooo cool. He is. Thanks for visiting, Dave! This was definitely a huge summer highlight.
