Pioneers and Chillaxin'

This week has been a very uneventful week around our house. We celebrated Pioneer Day on Friday July 24th by playing tennis in the morning and going to Harry Potter again! It was a great time. I played some mean tennis that day. The movie was just as good as the first time.
On Saturday, we went and did sealings at the Mount Timpanogos Temple during the morning. We have also talked a lot about our ancestors who were pioneers, including ones who survived the Willie Handcart Company. Because I have learned so many wonderful stories about almost all of our great great and great great great grandparents who were pioneers we have had a lot of stories to discuss. I am SO grateful that they all suffered so I could live now and not have to trek across the plains.
I went shopping and to the pool on Saturday afternoon while Rick chilled at home watching lots of soccer. We had a great homemade steak dinner with fresh picked corn. Let me tell you, that corn was mightly fine. mmm mmm mmm
Today being Sunday we did the church thing, watched some NASCAR and are watching soccer right now while I mess around on the computer.
It has been one of the most quiet weekends we have had a in a long time. Our phone has not even rung once during these 3 days. You would think that we were on vacation but still able to sleep in our own bed.
One great thing...I was able to get my own ReAl Salt Lake shirt. We are going to a match next month and I want to be able to show my ReAl pride.
I love our weekends together. It is great fun to spend time with friends and family but sometimes it is so nice to just hang out and not have to worry about entertaining anyone else or them entertaining us.
