SQUEAKY CHEESE


Just got home from St. George, Utah. We stopped by the "Squeaky Cheese Factory" in Beaver. Did you know Beaver shuts down at 6:00 PM? Yeah, no. Seriously. Even McDonalds. Yeah, no. Seriously. So when all we could find was static on the radio as we rode out of town, Jules said, "Geez. Even their RADIO shuts down at 6:00!" Good one, Jules. Here's another~


Jules~"Um, Mom? Do you have rotten walnuts in YOUR ice cream, too?"

Me~"Nope. My walnuts are fine. How do you know they're rotten?"

Jules~"Well, first of all, most of them are green!"

Me~"Ha! Not walnuts, dear. Pistachios."

Now just so you're not angry, thinking I had any fun without you, (besides ROCKIN' OUT to REO Speedwagon, which is clearly illustrated in the above pic,) let me assure you that the sky was as a leaking urine soaked baby diaper nearly the entire time. It just smelled better. And the riotous wind ripped through my hair, adhering most of it to my lipgloss every time I stepped out of the car. And the warning cry of "ROAST," was heard loud and often in the automobile, on account of us implementing the family vacation motto a few years ago. It is as follows~

"ANY AND ALL RUMP ROASTING THAT OCCURS IN AN OCCUPIED FAMILY VEHICLE, MUST BE MADE KNOWN TO EVERY INHABITANT, AND IN A TIMELY MATTER, BY SHOUTING, 'ROAST!' IN ORDER THAT MOUTHS MAY CLAMP AND WINDOWS UNROLL, SO AS TO KEEP THE DAMAGE AND JUSTIFIED HOSTILITY TO A MINIMUM."

It seems to be effective, but there are occasional mishaps, in that we'll get a mouthful of shart essence without so much as the telltale rumbling. But they're teenage boys. We take what we can get.

Anyway, just wanted to catch you up to date. Oh, and here's something fun...SECOND SON CHRISTIAN DALE IS THE NEW STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT for his High School next year!

I know!

And I know what you're thinking. The answer is yes—I did do it for the sweater. What's your point?

You're killin' me!

Beaver sqeaky cheese place..........no wonder roasting was taking place.

I hope your son is as dignified as you. Being a president and all...isn't that a dignified position?

LOVE the sweater.

Krista said...

Please don't tell my son about the whole "roast" thing. Though I think that is only the considerate thing to do. Wouldn't want to be caught with my mouth open and all. I thought REO Speedwagon would be Rusty Wagon by now. The important thing is that you looked super CUTE!

Kay said...

Is this the same son who invited the girl to the dance the same day as the Disneyland trip?

Cherie said...

I knew I clicked on you at 10:30 for some reason - You make me laugh!
The Roasting is alive and well on our family trip also - teenage boys = Stinky!!
OK I know there is alot more to comment on but I love your hair!!

P.S. congrats to #2 son!! Awesome

what the what??? and I find that you were here in St George but I never knew it???? (wait... hang on... checking my e-mail... yep, you're in trouble with me now!)

WV says Disus... but no, I think you just dissed me :)

I'll forgive you - but only if next time I get some good pistachio ice cream out of the deal.

I think every great family needs rules and the roast rule is an excellent one. Congrats to boy #2. I'll be driving through Beaver next week. Thanks for the warning. Mimi

Julianna said...

Really...

Beaver?

Stinky Cheese?

Am I the only one who'd never heard of this before? I feel some really punny sarcastic jokes coming on...

Holly said...

Well now I know what to call it... I'm in a house with all boys, ya' know... LOL!!

Jules is such a cutie!

Christian got SB Pres cuz he's COOL like his MOMMA!! ;D

((HUGS))

You know why Beaver was shut down at 6 pm? Because, apparently in THEIR culture EVERYONE goes to the Prom. It's like a family event, and it was prom night.

Yep, I know that. Why? You ask? Because I'm that cool... or, I just so happen to have a YW that went to Beaver prom and she told me all about it on Sunday. Crazy weird. I guess small all small
towns do that, except Tremonton because we're stupid or something.

Jennifer Griffith said...

And I thought our town was bad shutting down at 8:00. No. Really. Even the Chinese places. And Mexican places. Shut. Sorry, we're closed, at 8:00 p.m. Before we moved here we were just glad to be getting out of traffic by that time. And NOW everyone's in pajamas and setting their TiVos for the 10:00 news so they can watch it at 4 a.m. or whatever other inhuman hour (as in OWLS and RACOONS' hours) they arise.

So, yeah. I hope you saved me some Squeaky Cheese. And you should get a music thingy on this page and only blast REO. Seriously. What the world needs more of is the Speedwagon.

Jennifer Griffith said...

I also must say to Sunshine, I love the phrase "Beaver Prom." So many mental images. Thank you for that.

Sunshine said...

I know... I laughed so hard as I was typing that! tee hee!!!

Stef said...

Roast! That is complete genius. Right now, my boys just yell, "Hit the deck". I prefer "ROAST" thank you very much!

Let's talk about how awesome REO is!
