weekend things

First of all, when Mike and I went running this morning there was a very small hint of the slightest chill in the air - the first time this season. That means that fall might actually be on its way! Oh phew. The summer heat in Arizona isn't as awful as it sounds, but by this time of year I am just so tired of it. (As I'm sure I've made abundantly clear on this blog.)

Tonight is our ward's annual Daddy Daughter campout in Sedona. When I asked Oliver what he wanted to do while the girls were gone he requested renting a movie and making popcorn. So that sort of gives you an idea of how exciting we are around here.

Mabel has joined a choir and her practices are right across the street from the new Gilbert Temple. (What are Mormon temples used for anyway?) So we have an awfully nice view while we wait for her in the park nearby. This temple isn't quite finished yet, and we are anxiously awaiting news of the open house.

What are you up to this weekend?


  1. That temple is GORGEOUS! I have a friend that just moved to AZ and she has posted a few pictures of it. I thought it was a castle somewhere until I saw the Angel Moroni! Have a great weekend!

  2. On the agenda for the weekend: baking bread (regular & raisin), making pumpkin muffins, ordering teeny-tiny snow gloves for our two year olds' chubby fingers (our forecast calls for snow on Tuesday) and catching up on some scrapbooking. I can't wait!

  3. Not doing too much. Grocery shopping tomorrow-maybe a Cosco run. Linda's (your cousin) has a birthday on Sunday and she is going to Disneyland but will see her later. All in all it will be a peaceful weekend. Not to hot just right!!

  4. Yes, that's right. This is the new blob, i like it too. But i have one more want to show you all:
