Great weekend, now I need a holiday to get a break from the holidays.

They love going to my sister Eden's house because they get a beautiful hot swimming pool (when I say hot, I mean hot...this pool is smoking hot, hot tub like) with all of their cousins and various pool toys. Eden and her family truly spoil us by letting us go over anytime we want.

So, I was a little perplexed the other day when I drove by this home. Nice looking home with the worst lawn that I have ever seen. Now, don't get me wrong, I understand when some lawns can go a bit yellow as the summer progresses. A typical SLC summer will have weeks without a drop of rain and temps hovering around 100 degrees.
But now tell me thins--how did this lawn end up looking like this? It frakkin' rained every single day! You look up into our mountains and our mountains our green. I mean, even just plain dirt has green growing out of it here in the city. Seriously, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how the lawn could look like this after all of this rain.
There are really only 4 possible explanations for this happening:
- This homeowner installed a reverse sprinkler system--basically instead of water coming out of the sprinkler heads, the sprinklers heads must be sucking up all moisture out of the lawn.
- Covering the lawn when it rains--I can just picture the homeowner sending his kids out with tarps to cover the lawn every single time it rains.
- Using hair dryers on the lawn--After each rainstorm, the homeowner goes out and uses a hair blower on the lawn to dry it out as soon as possible.
- He has a dog that takes care of his business and is marking his territory over every single piece of grass.

Hide and Seek, with a very smart 2-year old:
GREENVILLE, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania toddler did such a remarkable job of hiding during a game of hide-and-seek that the family had to call police and firefighters to help find her. Two-year-old Natalie Jasmer was playing the game with her siblings Tuesday in their Pymatuning Township home. When the family couldn't find her, parents Dennis and Michelle Jasmer called authorities.
Emergency crews and friends frantically searched the neighborhood about 70 miles northwest of Pittsburgh for about an hour.
The family's dog, Copper, finally sniffed her out. She had fallen asleep in a drawer underneath the family's washing machine.
The little girl told her family she was sorry. Hide-and-seek is now banned in the Jasmer household.
I will have to keep my phone handy when Carter or Beckham go hiding. Though it would not be really fair to them if I have the police help me find them when they are hiding.

Our internet best friend from Georgia came out and hung out with us on Tuesday night. If you haven't visited her site before, check it out, she has great stuff: ShellBell We had a good time hanging out and partying all night long. I think it is fair to say that she had a memorable night as she was finally introduced to Tab. As we all know, few things in life are better than Tab...she got to taste the goodness and if I remember our conversation correctly, she said something like: 'Thank you Sam for introducing me to Tab. This could be the turning point in my life.' Something like that. Glad to have you in town Shellie.
