Family Friday:

On Friday night we went up to South Jordan for a back to school party with Matt's family :) We had a blast! For dinner we had lasagna, then we played Croquet and Boccie Ball in the front yard with the whole family. Then we came inside and played this get to know you game - it was really fun and such a cute idea. They had about 8 different kinds of gum and we each took 4. Then they had questions that went along with each type of gum and you only had to answer if you had that kind of gum. Some examples of the questions were, "What are you afraid of?" "What was the most painful thing you have experienced?" "Tell an interesting or scary story from your childhood." "How many kids do you want to have?" It was fun to get to know everyone a little better - because those things sometimes don't come up in normal conversation. Then we had banana splits and watched the olympics for a bit. We slept over Friday night and all had breakfast together on Saturday. It was so much fun just to be with the family for the weekend. Here are some pic
