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~

Ward Summer Party

After enjoying grilled hamburgers on our picnic blanket, there were games to play, balloons to toss, relays to run, and watermelon to eat. It was Lukas' first eating contest and thoughts of his pediatrician ran through my head. Once when Lukas was a baby he downed 11 oz, which is quite a lot for a kid who is charted for 8oz. Amazed that he kept it down, Dr. Lee exclaimed that perhaps he would someday become a champion competitive eater. (Yeah. Every mom's dream for her child.) Some person in their great wisdom chose watermelon to down at this competition. Bless them. He was full and filthy when all was said and done, and rode his bike around in a makeshift bike parade. Oh yeah, and there was lots of gawking at a skunk that came into view on the clearing while picking up. One can tell that most kids hardly see "nature", the way they fuss over it when it presents itself. Hee hee.
