To make up for sleeping in yesterday, we got up bright and early to clean the church. Eddie and Lindsey and a few other people came to help, also. We were there for about an hour and a half. Our kids were such happy helpers. I am grateful we had the assignment.
Face painting, water fights….
Josh and I were assigned to help with the fishing booth. Josh was doing all the talking with the fishermen (he was killing me the whole time, he is soooo funny), and I was behind, clipping prizes to the fishing lines.
Then after a while, Druw came to help! It was so cute to see these guys working instead of playing. They would peek to see who was fishing and say “OH! I know what they would like!” or “They are going to LOVE this!” Pretty cute.
Josh, Ashton and I were doing that booth for two full hours, non-stop. It was a hit but man, it was crazy hot out there. We went down the water slide and helped clean up, then went home for lunch and naps. While the babies were sleeping, I went running. It actually felt so good to run in the stifling heat.
Tonight we got to go to Joe Rubalcava’s 80th birthday party in Nephi. It was so good to see most of the Rubalcava’s and some Palmdale people. I didn’t take any pictures, I was busy talking with Roman, his wife, and Olivia. But Josh snapped this one of Ashton in a tree! What the?!?! AWESOME!!!
As we were leaving, Kris and Spencer pulled into the parking lot and showed us the puppy they just bought. Emmy was smitten immediately. Too darling!Josh tried to go to the factory with his dad but things all fell through and he was back way earlier than expected. So I ran to the store and finished writing my talk. I was asked to give a talk on Father’s Day (tomorrow). Let me tell you, I have been a complete spazzed out mess ever since the assignment was given. I cannot wait until 2 o’clock tomorrow when I am completely free of this burden.
