They don't think I know a buttload of crap about the Gospel, but I do.*

This weekend didn't turn out quite like I had planned, but it was all good.  First off - Saturday was to be our summer Regional YSA activity.  Last year Hurricane Irene blew into town and canceled our activity - this year the weather was looking like it was going to be perfect until the day before - when it called rain - all day.

Saturday morning was dark and rainy and I prayed and prayed for the rain to hold off long enough for the activity.  About 9:30 it stopped - then about 9:33 it started up again.  At 11 we decided to move the activity to the church building.  We sent out mass texts, updated the facebook event and made phone calls.  We ended up with about half the number of people we hoped/planned for - but all things considered, I am chalking this one up as a success.

We will be eating all of the left over food tonight at 7 at the Monument chapel...if you're in the area and want free dinner.

Saturday night, my friend Nick and I watched some Dr. Who.  I'm a bit of a Dr. Who fan.  The show just keeps getting better and I might be addicted.  Nick is the second person I converted to Dr. Who this past week - that's a good record.  The new season starts up this Saturday so I'm trying to get people ready.  Nick and I were talking about the new Doctor - cause he wears bow ties.

 I asked Nick if he would wear one and he said it would if he were British (the Who is a BBC show).  I thought that was lame.  Americans can be cool too. I told him that if I had a bow tie I would wear it...maybe I should get one for Saturday.  Anyway - so you can imagine my absolute delight when I found Cam wearing a bow tie on Sunday.

I told Cam he needs to tell the other boys at church how to dress.
Turns out Cam isn't the only bowtie wearer - we have Adam too.

That just made my day.

After church I went to the parental's house.  Joanna made Samantha a birthday cake which I thought was cool.

It's a Jessie cake as my nephew called it - but turns out that it's not MY cake - despite it being named after me.

Then I just wanted to share these photos - this kid cracks me up.  You'll have to excuse her - she's not an ambiturner*.

After watching all the Star Trek episodes (from the originals to deep space nine), we were wondering what series we could watch next. Guess what we picked? :)

Bow ties are cool!

I love Doctor Who. It took me a while to get into the show because let's face it, season 1 with Nine pretty much sucked. But it really does keep getting better and better. I just LOVE the Ponds so much! I love that you are converting your friends! My bloggy/twitter friends are the ones who convinced me into it and promised me that if I stuck to it, I'd love it. They were right! Can't wait for the new season to start this weekend!
