I told my boys they could read in bed last night. When I came in Dillon and Kray were both reading the scripture readers that we have. Dillon was reading the Book of Mormon and Kray was reading the Old Testament. Joe had on the floor a comic book that I found about the Book of Mormon. I love seeing my kids choose to read the scriptures on their own.

On Saturday we went to the Korean Folk Village with the Turville's. It was neat to see Korean performers. I loved watching them dance. Then we walked around. Dillon choose for us to go to a Korean Mountain Village. They had squash growing on the roof of the shed.
They had body pillows and the kids had fun pretending to sleep with them. They had a tree that you could rub your back on. We all took turns climbing into the palanquin and see what it would be like to sit in one of these boxes and be carried around. Then we dressed up in traditional Korean clothes. It was very hot in all those clothes. The kids had a great time running around and we had fun hanging out with the Turvilles. I am glade that we have a family in our little branch that has kids the same ages as ours.
We rode our bikes from Rex Village to the hanger where Spencer works. It's just over 3 miles. You have to cross over one major road. I was nervous about this but the kids did great. Spencer rode with Kray and I rode with Dillon and Joe with Christina on behind. We made it to Spencers work in about 40 min. I was very proud of my kids. We had a great time.
We had a great time in California and the kids keep asking to go and play with everyone again. I was scared that Christina wouldn't go to my parents or what to play with the girls because she can be so shy at times but she remembered everyone and couldn't get enough of them.
The boys had fun riding and even would get up early in the morning to go riding. They had a great time playing with their cousins. I hardly saw them except when they wanted food. I wouldn't have it any other way.

When I was in OR. Rocki cut Christina's hair for me. It turned out really cute but I cried because her hair was so long and it was such a change. It looks really cute though and her friends have decided that they have a hair cut too. I think it's cute that they want to be like her. Thanks Rocki for doing a great job on her hair.
