I write far too much about food in this post...



Last week Grandma and Grandpa Dewolf came to make their annual pilgrimage to Disneyland so they stopped by and took us to dinner. We found this excellent little authentic-and I mean pink and green satin decorated authentic-Italian restaurant that we love. It was excellent. It was so nice to see them. We love having visitors. And they delivered a whole new line of clothes for Eli that Natalie bought-

Thank you Grandma for the weiner dog outfits-Love E

Tonight we had Michelle and Joe Tolboe over for dinner. I made chicken and salmon enchiladas and I must say they were rather tasty. It is fun to be social! My family better be proud of us. We chatted it up and I found the best ice cream at the store: Breyer's Fried Ice Cream. Oh. It is cinnamon caramel ice cream with little fried tostada bits. Holy wow. It is so delicious. Anyway, their little boy Cade is like a week younger than Eli...E is more than a week fatter though. They chilled sort of. Michelle and Joe oh so graciously watched Duane for us while we went to St. George. Many thanks for that because I know that watching three dogs who don't necessarily love each other and a six month old baby is not really all that easy. You are a gem Michelle.

Adam made German pancakes and homemade caramel syrup for breakfast today. Oh my. I know this is like the fourth time that I have talked about ridiculously unhealthy food in this post already, but give me a break; I ran 26 miles yesterday all right? SO just back off. We decided it has to be a conference tradition, both because it was so sickeningly delicious and because if you ate it more than twice a year, it would most certainly shorten your life by a significant margin. It was so nice to watch conference. I love cuddling with my little family and listening to such inspiring words of wisdom. It is pleasant and peaceful and always thought provoking. I am glad to have that wonderfully relaxing requirement every six months which I am certain is also good for my spiritual health. Anyway, good times...and since you already know everything I have eaten today, I just need to give a shout out to the St. George Pizza Factory and Sharky's. Why why why can the Pizza Factory in Provo not be as good? Its such a travesty. We got the best pizza and breadtwists there the night before the marathon and indulged at Sharky's after the marathon. There. Now you know everything I have eaten for about the past 72 hours.

Food is good. Sharky's is divine. I could go for a tempura fish taco right about now. You shouldv'e joined Grandpa and Grandma D at Disneyland! I love that place!

Yummy food. Next conference maybe we should get together- we make homemade cinnamon rolls and with your yummy pancakes- we could all just increase our cholesterol levels together! :)

Hi Ashley, Scott is in dental school at UOP in San Francisco, CA. We love it here. He is a second year (and since its only a three year school) we are almost half way done! We are so excited! I asked Scott his advice and all he said was good luck. It's a great experience for all involved. I have loved making new friends. I'm sure you guys will do great!
