Please enjoy these scenes from our first annual Mill River Lane Salmon Fry on Wednesday night. We have new neighbors, Chad + Stephanie Walters, who we absolutely adore. Chad loves to fish (Salmon), Stephanie doesn't like fish (problem.) We decided to host a street wide fish fry and build friendships in our neighborhood (solution.)
I can't believe I didn't get a pic of Chad frying the fish. One more reason to continue this new tradition. I did get a pic of the inflatable water slide that dominated my front lawn for about 4 hours! Needless to say, ALL of our children were happy and busy!
Cute girls eating on the sidewalk — remember when you did that?
LOVE it. The sun is setting and people are sitting around enjoying each other. NOTE: Since I'll be sending out four missionaries in the not-too-distant future, we always try to feed our local missionaries when we have large amounts of food. I'm going to believe that someone, somewhere will be nice to my boys too.
We're still doing summer BINGO at our house, although I'm having to urge my boys a bit more. "make a movie using mom's Flip camera" was one of the bingo squares for Trey and Taft this week. I was duly impressed with Trey's effort. There was no direction from me whatsoever.
Young boys in the 8 to 11 year range will clearly enjoy this the most, but it's worth a minute and 52 seconds of your time.
I'm so delighted to be home and unscheduled today.
Yay for Saturday!
