Our Weekend

We had a great weekend! The weather was really beautiful on Saturday, not quite as nice as Sunday but not too bad. Chris and I went to see Bounty Hunter Friday night. The kids had an event at church that lasted until 11:30 so we had our date night a day early :) The movie was really funny but not as funny as we had expected. Sometimes it seems like they show all of the funny parts in the previews so you kind of already know what to expect. We did go to Starbucks too which we do not do very often anymore. That was quite a treat! They have a dark cherry mocha drink that is really good but probably not very good for you.

Jordan volunteered at church for the early service on Sunday. He has graduated from moving the drums back and forth to going out on stage and putting the microphone where it goes. He gets to hang out with the band members back stage which is pretty cool. Madison and I volunteered to watch the little babies. We had alot of fun, it is really nice when you get to hold the babies for an hour and then give them back to their parents. We also went and got some plants for our garden. We got several tomato plants, zucchini, cucumber and then a bunch of different herbs. We figured we better start small since this is our first attempt at a garden. I can not wait for the fresh herbs!! I am looking forward to the basil, I think everything is better with basil. That is my theory anyway :)

Last night we watched the new show from Jamie Oliver "Food Revolution". That was a really good show. We are hooked now, I can't wait until Friday when they air it again. Jamie Oliver is one of our favorite chefs. The show is about him coming to America to clean up the food in our schools. It was absolutely disgusting the things that are being fed to the kids in public schools. It is amazing what the government considers a healthy, balanced meal. They were feeding the kids pizza, cinnamon grahams, fruit cup and strawberry milk for breakfast! What part of that is healthy? The fruit cup? Well that is probably loaded with high fructose corn syrup and very little fruit. They said that this is the first generation that the kids will die at a younger age then their parents, 10- 15 years younger. That should be a wake up call to any parents that don't feel nutrition is important. I am so glad that ABC is actually airing a quality program for a change. It was also really cool because they showed Jamie Oliver talking to a pastor and he was explaining that God calls us to take care of our bodies and that America is destroying everyone with the crap that they put in their food. The next time it comes on is Friday at 8/7 central on ABC.
