A few matters of business...

This Thursday our Relief Society is having a 72 hour kit readiness night for Enrichment and the men are invited, too! I hope lots of people go...it looks like it's pretty good timing! The weather forecasters are predicting Gustav to become a major hurricane (catagory 3 or higher) as it enters the Gulf of Mexico. I think it'll curve up more towards Louisiana, but we'll keep a close eye on it.


Other news, yesterday I was in the pantry getting out stuff to make lunch, and I noticed there were ants in the marshmallow bag. Then, I looked on the walls and there were ants crawling up the walls! I was so mad! We just had to pay the the pest control guys $75 to come and spray because fire ants were crawling all over our kitchen floor and the carpet in the living room. They sprayed all over the house, and still, these annoying ants still get in! I had to empty out the entire pantry (which took forever!) and spray the walls and floor with raid, wait for it to dry and then put everything back in (which also took forever!) Hopefully that takes care of them.



We went to Quintana beach on Saturday with a few other families from the ward and had a lot of fun! The weather was great and the water was warm. These kids sure are water babies, they had so much fun playing in the waves and throwing shells and rocks into the water! This is the best picture I could get...I think Whitney's eyes were closed in every single one!

Wait, you live by the beach? I'm jealous. When can we come and visit? :-)

Ants, huh? Do you miss Idaho/Colorado yet? J/K. Yes, we have winter, but that's pretty much it. No pest control. No hurricanes. No earthquakes. But no beaches either. Guess it's a trade off. (Although I keep waiting for global warming to turn Idaho into a lush, warm, beach-front state!)

I can't believe that ants were so bad after being sprayed- I would call the pest control place for sure!

The beach looks fun! I love Aaron's little swim diaper - so cute.

Good Luck with the up coming storm, I hope you guys are ok!

Also, when I lived in Texas, I was about 2, I woke up one morning covered in fire ants! I hate Bugs!!!
