Family Adventures

So after all the fun at the crawfish boil, Sam and I went out on a date to the little mini-golf place a mile or so from our house! Yes, it's the same place we went to last time.
And Sam still looks like he's levitating. :)
We did the last 9 holes left-handed, which presented a fun challenge. I even got a hole in one, although Sam still creamed me!
A few Saturdays ago we went to the ward campout at Galveston. Sam had a meeting early the next morning, so we couldn't stay the night, but it was fun to go and roast hot dogs and marshmallows, anyway. Ignore the weird coloring and overly enthusiastic expression on my face in this picture...hey, we're camping--I'm supposed to look awful, right? :)
Talmage spent nearly the entire time staring into the fire and sipping juice. He is completely infatuated with fire at the moment. You should have seen how much he loved the fire on Sam's birthday cake a few days ago!
Crazy hair!
Our wedding photo book is currently his favorite book! At least once each day he climbs up on the chair, reaches up on the bookshelf to pull it down, and pores over the pictures. He loves looking at the ones with all the extended family. Even though he doesn't see you much, he feels a special connection to you all.
I've always been a one project or one book at a time kind of a person. I like to tackle a job, get it done, and then move on to the next. Lately I have realized that I'm feeling a bit scattered because I have so many projects and books I'm in the middle of! I'm not quite sure how that happened, but I think I should finish work on these lists before adding to them.

Currently reading:
-The Screwtape Letters (C. S. Lewis)
-The Horse and His Boy (C. S. Lewis)
-The Greatest Salesman in the World (Og Mandino)
-And There Was Light (Jacques Lusseyran)
-A Disciple's Life--The Biography of Neal A. Maxwell (Bruce C. Hafen)
-The Book of Mormon
-The New Testament
-And I'm about to start Man's Search for Meaning (Viktor Frankl) for our family book club.

Current craft projects:
-Sewing school bags for LDS Humanitarian Services
-Making a denim quilt
-Sewing throw pillows for our bed
-Editing a picture of the Mt. Timpanogos temple to blow up and hang on the wall above the stairs
-Plus a HUGE list of "to-do" projects is getting longer and longer.

Yes, I'm starting to understand why I'm feeling so scattered...
It's nice to have so many things to occupy my time since Sam is gone so much.
Here is one project I did manage to finish.
Finishing one motivates me to kick it in gear and get the rest done!
