That's Entertainment!

We are reaching the point of the summer when my bag of tricks has almost run out, yet I am always amazed at what will entertain a child.....Emi decides to entertain herself by dressing up as a fancy lady....Parker decides to dress up a camera tripod and name it "Tall-E" (to be said with the correct Wall-E voice inflection). This thing has proved even more humorous to him because it keeps scaring the bejeebies out of me when I walk downstairs. I swear it's real. Parker thinks that is hilarious...until he freaked out when he walked upstairs Saturday morning. Perhaps I will move "Tall-E" into his bedroom in the middle of the night and see what that does to him. Serves him right!
Here is Emi at the Hopkins BBQ in Park City the other night. They entertained themselves for an hour by turning on and off the bounce house. Thanks again, Carey, for having us up (and 22 children) to eat and play. Sorry that we all ended up in your bedroom with Julie watching Olympics and using your massager!
And then there's Quinn....stick him in a swing and he's happy forever. The one sock is result of a wasp sting on his toe...thanks to former lifeguard Jenn who knew how to treat it right!
I will now try to entertain myself by simultaneously watching Olympic Gymnastics, unloading my dishwasher, and finishing "Eclipse" so that no one will spoil "Breaking Dawn" for me!

Wow, advertisments...

That Parker is a funny kid. He may wind up sleeping in your bed if you put Tall-E in his room at night. But what a great payback.

AND..how fun that you got to spend time with Kerri. I miss the days of hanging out with her in Relief Society.

I just got Breaking Dawn. Can hardly stand not to read it!!

You're my kind of parent Liz! Think its funny to scare mom! Well, just you wait Parker- mom has her own set of tricks! Nothing says "being the adult" like a little parent to child revenge!:) I am impressed with your kids creativity!
