Highlights from Sunday and Monday, Aug 14 and Aug 15

Sunday started quite early for us, Church starts at 9:30 am, which is 7:30 our time.  We got up and got going about 8:45.  Thankfully the children all knew what they were going to be wearing, because we only packed one thing for church each.  This was a big day for my 12 yr-old nephew.  He was getting the Aaronic Priesthood and would be made a Deacon.  We didn't know he would be getting his priesthood until we arrived in Cleveland.  I am so glad we could be there for the occasion.  My dad did the ordination.

After church, Dad made some burgers and we had chips and dip with it.  I hadn't had a good burger in a long time, since I am not good at cooking them.  Italian sausage was also made, but by the time those were ready to be eaten, we all had eaten our fill of burgers.

Bob was bringing the kids to see the Smurfs, but the movie was packed.  He had even packed up snack bags full of fruit for all of them.  They headed out to the movie, but there wasn't enough room for them all to sit together, so he gave me a call and we met at the playground across from the ballpark.  The kids played for at least an hour and a half, and we caught glimpses of the ball game.  Once again, it was time to see about another movie.  Bob loaded all the children into the van, then headed off.  I went to the ballpark and watched games.  My mom and sisters showed up to watch with me, then my brother came, then my dad, then Roland came, then we picked up Colette for the Championship game, then Bob showed up again with the children.  We all watched the final game of the City Cup together.  Granny's (aka Muccis/CCLodge) ended up beating Behan Trucking for the championship.  After the game, we went home and ate the Italian sausage. 

Monday rolled around and we had chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast.  Dad, Jim, Colette, Bob and I went to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  I thought it would be pretty uninteresting, but it wasn't as bad as I thought.  I think it took a long time to get to the action though.  Mom watched the children while we were gone.  After the movie, Dad and I went to Wal-Mart and grabbed some Kraft American Cheese Singles as we all decided we would head to a Bison's game on Tuesday, and this would make it buy one ticket, get one free.  We bought a lot of cheese, so we thought we would have grilled cheese or grilled cheese and bologna sandwiches with tomato soup.  I can't eat bologna while I'm pregnant, so I had tuna.  That night, everyone came over and I made a bunch of sandwiches, a total of 30.  There were 1 1/2 left.  I found out that my sister-in-law had never had tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches.  She liked it.  It is definitely worth a try!

We had a busy day planned for Tuesday so we just took it easy on Monday night.  Movies were rented and the children and others watched Alpha and Omega.  After the movie was over, it was time for bed.

  1. Sunday was a great day because we all got to hang out together. I couldn't believe our SIL had never had a grilled cheese sandwich dipped in tomato soup either.

    I am so glad you are documenting your vacation here. The days seemed to run into each other, so it is a good think you still have your memory.
