FHE BBQ

Tonight we had two families from our ward come over the Shumway's and the Riggs! We set up the big slide and re-filled the pool! Ella is becoming more brave- she finally went down head first. We also had some yummy food and had a quick FHE lesson and played LDS bingo- Gunnar won! Then we started watching the movie "Cars" but soon the kids were off playing again. Ella just loved Dakota! She kept trying to lay on him and we caught them under the blanket more the once. It was ALL Ella! We might need to have a talk about being friendly, but not too friendly. What's she going to be like at 13? I'm afraid to find out! The night went by so fast, I think time always flies when you're having fun! We are so glad that we are making some new friends! Thanks guys! We can't wait to get together again- bowling??

We tried the ring test- I've always wanted to! It's where you tie a thread to your wedding ring and someone holds it above you. If it spins in a circle then you're going to, or have had a girl, if it swings back and forth you're going to or have had a boy. So tonight we did it for me! Circle for Ella, then again for the baby that we lost that was a baby girl, then back and forth for Jack, then.... circle for a girl and back and forth for a boy! Then it stopped. I looked at Ryan " I guess we aren't done after all"! I'll be excited to see what happens. I want to have two more- a girl and a boy just like it said! I'll cross my fingers. (This is Lauren having the ring test on her, she's got a few more kids to go too!)

Yes, Dakota was asking when his new friend Ella gets to come over to our house. Thanks so much, we had a great time. Bowling would be fun. Justin wants to try out the dead guys ball.

That sounds like fun! I am glad that you are getting settled in and meeting new people. It always makes the transition eaiser! That is funny that Ella liked Dakota so much! How cute! The slide looked like a lot of fun too! sorry it took me so long to comment. I meant to do it before this but everytime I would start to comment Jolie would start screaming. But I am doing it now!
