Samism: Money 101

Borden Milk Sammy had just poured a giant glass of milk. Mommy remembering him pouring out the extra milk last time began this conversation.

Mommy: Sammy, drink what you want but then don’t pour it out. Mommy will drink the rest. It costs Mommy money to buy milk!

Sammy: Okay. But Mom, then just don’t use your money.

Mommy: Don’t buy milk?

Sammy: No, but use your money to buy more dollars. And then go to school.

Mommy: Go to school?

Sammy: Yes, when you go to school you get more money. And then you can get more food, milk (and a big list that mommy can’t remember now).

Mommy: Oh.

Sammy: See! Just go to school*.

*I guess that the “going to school” is going to work right? :) I do go to work (school) to earn money…

Fun with Grandma & Grandpa at the Welk

Sammy has been asking when we were going to take the train to Oceanside again (this is our third “annual” trip) and although Grandpa and Grandma didn’t have time at Oceanside we (the boys and I, Daddy had to work) still took the train to Oceanside and then Grandpa picked us up and took us down the road to Escondido, CA and we stayed at the Welk Resort for a night.

The boys loved the train (all three of them) and they couldn’t stop smiling (the return trip home in the car with Grandpa and Grandma wasn’t as pleasant; Sammy kept saying, “this is taking hours and hours” and they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves).IMGP5438

When we got there we played foosball and air hockey, played at the playground, took walks to the pond across the way, fed the ducks cheerios, had races on the grassy area behind the condo, barbecued, swam in the pools and had a lot of fun!

It would have been fun to stay a few more days…maybe we’ll go again next year! :)

Happy Birthday America!

IMGP5329 I’m a little behind in blogging but oh well…life has been busy. We’re having lots of summer fun and I got a new calling (YW President) which is keeping me busy as well. :)

We had a great weekend. On Saturday, July 3rd we woke up and went to the park to feed the ducks. We played at the water park (hooray for Splash) fit naps in there at some point and then went to the Carr Family’s annual 3rd of July party!

Sunday, July 4th was not such a great day for us. Three boys were sick with high fevers. We spent most of the day lounging around cuddling them (but I escaped to church to meetings and to teach my YW Lesson!) We missed the family party at Sarah’s that evening…there is always next year! (Here are the pictures from Splash and Heritage)!

Monday, July 5th we got invited over to the Raile’s house for a BBQ and man does Clark know how to BBQ! He has a fancy smoker and the ribs, chicken and pork was better than at Lucille’s! The boys had fun, we ate tons and went home full and happy!
