My parents came up and watched the kids for us from Saturday until Tuesday. On Sunday, Kevin and I went to Moab where we met up with an old friend of mine, Harold. We went rafting on Monday and WOW!!! What a blast! We went on a whole day trip. We met at the Westriver Adventure Company and they bused us out for 1 1/2 hrs. I haven't been on a school bus that long since high school marching band. We went down the Colorado River through Westwater canyon. We were in an oar boat, so we didn't have to paddle, just hang on and get wet! And that we did! The weather was great, the water fabulous, the company perfect, and we got back at 5 pm. Just in time for Harold to make dinner (and let me tell you that was just as good as the rafting! I didn't have to cook!) We played Rock Band at night and I had such a good time! We got home Tuesday night, I had an audition for a chorus on Wednesday, and Kyle started school on Thursday. It's been a busy week, but with so many changes coming up it has definately been interesting! Stay tuned for more adventures from the Shanley's =)

Just for fun!

I saw this on the Lay's blog and I thought it was cute, so I have asked Kyle these questions and here is what he said...

1. What is something mom always says to you? What? (I'm going a little deaf!)
2. What makes mom happy? when you say "I love you"
3. What makes mom sad? I don't know.
4. How does mom make you laugh? when she says stuff that is funny
5. What was mom like as a child? Pretty (awwww!)
6. How old is your mom? 32!
7. How tall is your mom? I don't know!
8. What is her favorite thing to do? play a board game with me
9. What does your mom do when you're not around? uh...I don't know!
10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for? Money. (so much for American Idol!)
11. What is your mom really good at? gardening, weeding our stuff.
12. What is your mom not very good at? beating me at checkers!
13. What does your mom do for her job? she doesn't have one

There were 20 questions but Kyle couldn't be bothered to answer all of them, especially not with one of his friends calling to see if he can play! Sigh, second fiddle again!
