This was a good week. I will go over some of the fun occurrences and you can decide for yourselves if my description is fitting.
This was a memorial to be remembered (pun intended). This marks the final holiday that the Muhlestein family will be called upon to set up flags for the neighborhood. While I think that setting up flags taught me valuable skills as a youth; such as pounding stakes and rolling up flags, I don't think that I will be the only one who will be glad that this responsibility has finally passed.
The rest of memorial day was spent in relaxing fashion eating food at David's house and playing a peculiar but thrilling game called Kubb. I probably ate my body weight in watermelon. Thank you David and Megan.
Also, I went to the pond in the evening, and it was around negative 80 degrees, so I would recommend waiting a while longer before committing to the pond.
This week my friend had a birthday, so some of our friends threw him surprise birthday party. For those of you not familiar with this practice, this is where you plan an event for someone and don't tell them about it until it has already started. We met him at Betos and then went swimming and ate ice cream cake. It was a wonderful evening and hopefully a nice way to start off another year of life.
Thursday was busy enough to merit it's own section. Mary had her farewell assembly to high school making, thus ending the Muhlestein's 20 plus year reign at Woods Cross High School. I'm not sure I would call the divorce bitter sweet, but it is notable at any rate. After Mary's shindig I went on a date. We went to a fun little bakery in salt lake and then walked around Memory Grove. It was fun. In the evening we went to the Roof restaurant as a family. It was also really fun and once again I probably ate more than I should, but this time in creme brule.
On Friday I played basketball with my friends and rediscovered how to dunk the basketball. This is great! Before this I hadn't dunked since February and I was starting to think that the shining spring of youth had passed on to the brown summer of middle adulthood. I will try to attach the short video, technology willing.
Gender Reveal Parties/ Another Date:
Saturday we helped David move heavy things into the moving truck and then wen to the ward car show. Following the car show we went to Kathryn's baby gender reveal party in Highland which was quite lovely. The food was nice and I am happy to announce that Kathryn and Steve will be rearing a happy young boy! Furthermore, they have full intentions of naming it Tanner (you need to verify this last fact with Kathryn and Steve). After the party, I went on a date with a girl that Christina visit teaches in Provo. We got some molcajete, which was quite lovely.
Well, that about does it for the week. I hope that everyone has a fun week. Pray for us as we drive to DC next week.
Basketball, and friends plus basketball.
