We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Happy Birthday Jared

For Jared's birthday, we had our friend Jill watch Lukas while Jared and I went to "Boomers" which is like "Trafalga", or "Putt Putt", or a "Fun Land" kind of a place. You know, mini golf, go-carts, arcade games, etc. And we mini golfed. Jared won for most of the way. It was hilarious to think that I actually played in a Jr. Putt Putters of America competition as a kid. Oh, the wiley days of the 80s in Texas. Oh yeah, and I stink at putt putt now. HA! We had a blast though, and especially as we went round after round on the go carts. The smell of gasoline flooded my mind with memories of Ms. Quick driving bus 176 to Spotsylvania Middle School. Oh, how that woman could not drive a clutch, or run a clean mouth, but at least it was a free, diesel-smelling ride to school!

With our almost 1000 tickets we won from arcade games, we brought Lukas, Kaelynn and Reanne (Jill's kids) some pretty sweet cheapo 'prize booth' toys, which had em all excited when we got back. Nerf dart poppers to shoot into the air. Awesome.

To top off the day with awesomeness, Jill invited us over for homemade tacos and bday cake. (It was Kaelynn's bday that week) and Jared blew out the candles on this beautifully crafted birthday cake (after she blew them out the first time):
