After the fireworks extravaganza, we went back to the house and sat around a fire. Michael LOVES to see things burn…candles, fireplace, fire pit…it doesn’t matter. My mom gave him a fire pit for his birthday and we have already used it twice…and it is JULY. I can’t even imagine how much we are going to use it once things get a little cooler. The fire must have hypnotized me because Jeremi and I made plans of doing the Soulja Boy dance together for Michael’s family at Christmas this year. I am a terrible dancer, so the sooner I start practicing the better.
On Saturday we all went to the Vulcan. Jeremi had never been before, so I think he was entertained.
After visiting the god of the forge, I decided I was in the mood for some homemade bread. A little background may be necessary, I think homemade bread is so delicious. I think it makes it seemed like you “worked hard” on even the simplest meal (for example, sandwiches). I have tried multiple times to make homemade bread in a bread machine. Every time I get my hopes up and every time they are dashed. People who use a bread machine say “it’s not hard” which makes me feel like a moron because I CAN’T GET IT TO WORK. I mentioned my bread making woes to Vicki, Michael's mom, and since she is a bread making expert she agreed to give me a tutorial. Thanks to her expertise, the bread turned out pretty good. Homemade bread is best just out of the bread machine (I think). By the time we got around to eating this batch, it had cooled down, but it was definitely my best attempt to date. After dinner, we decided to go with Jeremi to see The Forbidden Kingdom at the dollar theater. I was moderately entertained, BUT I am not sure I would be excited about having to watch it a second time. My less than enthusiastic recommendation should be taken with a grain of salt-The Forbidden Kingdom is a martial arts flick and that is DEFINITELY not my favorite genre. Every time I go to the dollar theater I am struck by how hilariously ghetto it is (Martina, don’t you and Camron love going? Do you think it is ghetto?). I guess it’s true that you get what you pay for. Seems like the boys felt like they got their moneys worth.
Sunday Michael’s fam headed home. Happy belated birthday,
