I was trying not to be too paranoid as the kids were throwing rocks and whatever else they could find into the swift moving water. I kept playing out scenarios of what I would do if one of them slipped in. I hate to even think about it but these are the things you think about sometimes. I was relieved when they lost interest in throwing things overboard. They seemed quite oblivious to the danger but at least they listened to me when I told them not to step into the current.
Henry and Maggie took a tour of the fire department. I can remember taking a tour of the fire department in Utah when I was a boyscout, I almost forgot how fun it is to explore where all our tax dollars go. I believe Kirsta from our ward set everything up. The kids had a lot of fun! They showed the kids all the layers of clothing and equipment they wear (50-90lbs). I can't image how hot that is in the summer time. The guy who was showing us was sweating bullets and it was a nice cool day.
Sara and the kids came down to California with me for my second interview. Despite the expression on Henry's face, he had fun with Grandma and Grandpa, it work out perfect because their cousins had the day off from school so they came over on Monday. All-in-all a good weekend. The following week I got an offer and we decided to take the job.
It has been raining for the last few days, which never happens in Las Vegas. After spending most of yesterday indoors we decided to venture into the rainy outdoors. On our way to the park, Henry fell asleep, so while he was sleeping in the car, Maggie did a little photoshoot. She told me I could take one picture, this is her unscripted.
