“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

A Perfect Evening

A few weeks ago for Richard's Birthday we went to the Drive-In.  We saw the movie Brave followed by Madagascar 3.  The shows did not start until 9:45 and we ended up getting there over an hour early, but the sunset was a beautiful, bright red. It had been hot, but the breeze picked up and it felt great!  It started to get dark and off to the left we could see the Rexburg Temple all lit up beautifully!  Then the movie started and off in the distance to the right of the screen there was quite a lightning show for us!  Good thing it was not headed our way.  We loved Brave, it was great. I was not sure that the kids would be able to stay up for the second movie which did not start until about 11:30, but they both insisted they wanted to see it.  We turned the van around, layered all the blankets and pillows in back and the kids watched from there.  Next time we will haul a love sac along!  We left shortly before 1am and the sliver moon was blood red.  Apparently this is due to the wildfires burning out of control.  Anyway, it was a perfect evening with Richard and the kids.  We all slept in till noon the next day!
