Random things I learned this weekend

-Going to bed at 1:30 AM and getting up at 7 AM to go to the temple might just cause you to have a hard time staying awake
-Rolling down hills in parks under the full moon with cute boys is a great way to spend Friday nigh
-There are no snakes in New Zealand
-Building fires makes men feel useful
-Small, fuzzy insects will treat you like part of the landscape if you sit in an open meadow for very long
-Mother's day is the same in America and New Zealand, but Father's day doesn't show up until August in NZ. I'm not sure what that means about how much they value fathers versus mothers over there
-Being presented with flowers that have been carried on a plane all the way from New York is a good way to make my heart melt
-I am dead tired and should be in bed
-But also pretty happy

What the New Zealand?! This post was fantastic. Seriously- no snakes? Why is that? I thought those buggers could survive just about anywhere warmish.

Thanks for the details.

It sounds like certain visits are going well. I am so glad!

All I can do is smile:) Remember the date when we went to the All State band/orchestra concert and Steve and I rolled down the hill? Yep, it's destined to be a good future when you roll down hills.
