An Incidental Time Capsule

Nina found a peeling board on the side of the old desk. Intrigued,  she opened it up to find a treasure trove of historical Lyon Family artifacts. Some findings include: A Halmark pencil Several G-I Joe accesories   A postcard belong to Uncle Daniel (About age 6)   A tiny action figure (The dime is for size comparison)   And another pencil with an interesting brand.   There was also a yellowed paper, but it tore in half as soon as we touched it. If you recognized any of these items, please comment!...

Camping

We went camping two days ago. We spent most of that morning hurrying around, trying to pack up. We were done and in the car by 4:29 PM.  It took about half an hour to get there. We got the tent set up, and then started the campfire. It went really well. We used a fire-starter product that had a chemical specially designed to catch fire. That kept it going for hours. Minimum effort, maximum functionality. Now that’s efficiency! After that, we cooked some hot dogs. Campfire hot dogs are pretty good! Then we roasted marshmallows and had s’mores. What can I say that would make the...

11-year-olds camp

I turned 11 almost two months ago, and what 11-year-old boy scouts in our ward do is an early evening to late afternoon campout. So me and dad went camping in a huge area complete with forest, plain, grass, pond, and STICKERS. Man, I hate stickers. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, “Stickers” (Stickerious Annoyingus) are painfull, hard plant material that hunt in packs. They cling to shoes, pants, and skin in an endless quest to raise their reputation from annoying to outright dangerous. I just hope that stickers are merely for protection, and not seeds. Anyway, back to...

Valentine’s day

It looks like no one has published anything yet, so it looks like I’m going to be the first one to blog something about it. But don’t worry mom and dad, I’ll leave the details for you. }:^) Breakfast: Pancakes Lunch: I forgot Snack: candy Dinner: cheese fondue Dessert: chocolate fondue. By the time we got to dessert my stomach was screaming for a time out. I had to eat slices of apples just to prevent myself from slipping into a sugar coma. I got lots of valentines, but those count as details, so I’ll leave that to M&D. Did you know that on Valentine’s day...

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas! Christmas morning, 3:00, Nina woke me up, saying “Grant, it’s Christmas!”. That made me mad because I had not said I wanted to be woken up early. ESPECIALLY that early. But I was awake, and I couldn’t go back to bed. So, half-asleep, I walked into the living room, where light from the tree caught the wrapping on the presents in a shimmering display of commercial Christmas magic. I opened my stocking, fully awake now, and beheld chocolates, candies, story dice, an alarm clock, and more toys. Getting out my kindle, I waited. And waited. And waited....
