Toot and Rebecca-there's a recipe hidden in here for you!

We had a good weekend. We let Grace pick what we did Sat . We went and saw Kung Fu Panda and then went to Tyler to Barnes and Noble and out to eat. The rule was we had to eat somewhere we hadn't before. Coy chose someplace like Hilltop BBQ (near the bowling alley). Neither of us can remember the right name. But it was good. We were glad we went.

Then this afternoon JoGail chose swimming. We invited Haley to go with us. Grace had the option of choosing someone to go but declined. I couldn't figure it out until I got to watching her and she had more fun aggravating Haley then anything.......that's why she declined. JoGail and Haley swam the length of the pool twice and both tackled jumping off the diving board. JoGail discovered it wasn't as bad as she thought. Then I took them to Braum's for ice cream. Grace ALMOST took a risk. She ALMOST ordered the fudge brownie sundae but chickened out at the last minute and ordered her usual- two scoops of vanilla. I guess some things will never change.

I made a new recipe to take to work tomorrow. It's called blueberry squares. It's just an angel food cake mix and a can of blueberry pie filling. Bake at 350 for 25-30 mins. I'll try it tomorrow and let you know if it's good or not.

Mom and Dad are volunteering at Glorieta NM again. They seem to enjoy volunteering there. Dad helps outside 9gets to play with someone's tractors, etc) and mom helps in the office. Keeps them busy.

Grace has volleyball camp which starts tomorrow in the morning and then has performance camp in the evening. She isn't excited about volleyball-but I think that's mainly because she doesn't know that much about it. She's loving performance camp. She said she loves lifting the weights.

I finish work Tuesday. Then JoGail has the dentist on Wed and then Thursday she and I are going to toys R Us. She has a gift card to use. She's held onto it for a while (since Jan).

Blueberry thing smells good!
