"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

FHE Activities!

With the warm summer months upon us, we've been having a lot more FHE activities outside of the house, which has been so much fun!  I think it's so important for us to spend quality time with our kids....not necessarily spending a ton of money, but spending a ton of time!  A couple of our Monday night FHE activities have been:

Going to the drive-in to watch The Avengers!
.....going on a Monday night was an awesome idea because besides the two other cars that were there in the front row, we had the whole place pretty much to ourselves!  We love the drive-in.....we always take our own food and lots of snacks...and we set up our chairs, but usually end up spreading the blankets on the ground and laying down to watch the movies with our blankets and pillows.  That is a great, affordable, fun way to spend quality time with the family!  And the movie The Avengers, was A for Awesome!  Lol.

Making smores in the back yard!
..........like I said, for Mother's Day, they dug a umu pit in our garden area....so we thought we'd make use of the hole to build a fire and make smores!  This idea was thanks to Aunty Alice, who brought all the stuff for the smores, and helped the kids make them.  It was fun to see the kids working together...the boys building the fire, and the girls looking for sticks to roast the marshmellows on!  Can't go wrong with delicious smores!  :)

Family....isn't it about TIME??!!!
