Pirates and Green Canyon

Pirates of the Carribean 2
Well, me and Amy went to see Pirates of the Carribean 2 while Ed and Sades watched our kids. We took Crystal with us cause we thought it would be ok for her.

Anyway, the movie itself was SUPER adventerous. Lots of cool monsters and big overdone fight scenes, but it was a little more violent than I was prepared for. I felt a little uncomfortable having Crystal there with us for alot of it. We let our kids watch the 1st one lots and lots, but I dont think we will do this with the 2nd one. Right at the beginning you get some scenes of some prisoners getting picked at by black birds while they scream. Pretty gross.

But it was a fun movie, and left LOTS AND LOTS open at the end, so they will probably do a 3rd one. And Captain Barbosa does return. And there is a scene after the credits, but I wont tell you what it is, only that I felt it was a total waste of time to wait for it since it didnt have anything to do with the plot of the movie really.

Green Canyon
So this weekend is my Grandma Galli's birthday, and she is having it celebrated in Green Canyon up in Idaho. At first we werent planning on going, but then as we were looking at what we could do for fun this summer, it crept back into our schedule and the more I thought about it, the more excited I got. So I called Dad and told him we were in.

We are going to leave Bailey with my mom though. So it will just be me and Amy and Rooker and Crystal. Talking today with Eddie, he said he thinks they will go to, so it could end up being really fun.

Green Canyon is a large campsite up in the mountains somewhere. They have a giant pool that they fill every day from a natural warm spring. I remember it being a total blast to go there. You just run around the campsite playing games, and going swimming about 3-4 times during the day. The kids are going to love it. Then we will have campfires at night and roast marshmallows and stuff. YUMMMMMM.

Also, the food is all provided anyway, and Dad is going to pay for our spot (and probably our gas), so I dont see any reason why we wouldnt go.

Blah, the more I think about it, the more excited I get. I am seriously pumped! We will be staying Fri and Sat night at the campground. Sun we will head to Rexburg to find a church to go to, then Sun night we will probably stay at Grandma Mortensen's home (my mom's mom).

Anyway, it should be a blast, I can barely wait. Im more excited to see how fun it will be for the kids than I am about anything else.
