We went to bed fat and sassy and somewhat wet!

Crystal and Ed had fun with Mabel while Brittany and John went across the street to the Maisel Military Museum. If you watch the video, wait till the end to hear Mabel's happy sigh of contentment!

We finished up the evening trying out board games lying around the house, to see which ones would make the cut for the big move to Utah. Tornado Rex made the cut big time! It has a mechanism that still works great after 25 years!

We drove in the rain to the Stake Center last night where I gave a mini-class on blogging as a means of journaling.
However, with the aid of a microphone, I was able to magnify my croaking enough to be understood. It was fun talking about blogging and sharing some of the ways we've preserved family online as well as in books.
There is nothing like eating lunch with 75 older Americans to make you feel young again!

Ed and I drove to Walkersville yesterday to ride the Mystery Train with the Rigbys. It was only a 45 minute drive away. The train ride was 2 hours, but only covered about 14 miles of track. It was slow enough you could really enjoy the scenery!
The served a nice dinner on board--as you can see by this nice cheese and fruit appetizer plate! It was catered by the Carriage House Restaurant.
I've had a cold this week and lost my voice, although I felt fine. This meant that everyone else had a chance to talk. There were points in the conversation where I thought they would have benefited from all the scintillating pieces of information floating through my mind, but it was to painful for everyone to hear me try to talk. Ed did a good job telling my stories for me!
The mystery was simple and fun and allowed us plenty of time to just enjoy the ride and the good company!

We even had a pet chicken show up!
It was a fun activity, and very interesting to see the wide variety of pets the girls owned!

One of the new things we're excited about is Teacher Councils! We think they will give our teachers new insight and the opportunity to share with other adults some of the problems and successes they experience!
