On Friday, we drained our pool. It has been 7 years now that we've had it. It was starting to get a lot of algae from hard water build up. So we drained it. Taz and Cynjyn had so much fun with it. We came home from errands and Taz had brought all of his toys out and made little scenes in the quickly emptying pool.
Garry dutifully spent the rest of the day cleaning off the hard water build up. Alexa came over and they played and played in the empty pool.
Sunday, it was all clean and we started filling it back up.
Last night, we had a camp kick-off dinner at mutual. It is ward camp this year and we are going to the beach in Malibu. Our theme is seeking for treasure. So Linda wanted to do a pirate crazy mix-up dinner that I have done many times. So I was in charge. We set up 5 tables and were expecting 40 girls and parents. I found some cute cheap decorations at the party store. All Pirates of the Caribean stuff was only $.99 so I got 5 of these ships for the tables. I got some treasure chests, coins, compasses and eye patches.
The menu consisted of 3 courses, 4 items each course. They choose their food from this menu. This was the dinner: Spaghetti, ceasar salad, garlic bread, cookies, Hershey nuggets, a fruit skewer, veggies and dip, fork, knife, spoon, drink, homemade ice cream. If they picked lucky, they might get a fork when they got their spaghetti, but then again, they might not. Let's just say it IS possible to eat spaghetti with your fingers!!
