Our friends the Dyer's

On Saturday evening we had our friends the Dyer's over for a pool party, BBQ & movie. We have known the Dyer's for quite awhile. Brandon, Mike & I all work for Cherisse's dad Norven Storrs at The Insurance Store. Cherisse's parents are in the same ward as my parents too.

I also worked with Austin, when he was in our Moreno Valley office. He is now working from our Murrieta office. I miss working with him as he has quite the sense of humor.

Cherisse & Austin have been married about 7 years. They have 3 children. Kenzie who is 4 (almost 5), Ethan who is 2 (almost 3) & Tessa who is about 9 or 10 months.

They come over quite a bit every summer to enjoy our pool. This time when they came over they brought hamburgers & hot dogs & all the fixins for a BBQ. They even brought the movie to watch.

After swimming & eating, Mike set up our outdoor movie theater. We have a stretchy screen that sets up across our pool & attaches to 2 bamboo poles that Mike has made to attach into the ground. So you can watch the movie from the pool, jacuzzi or at either end of the pool. He has a projector that he sets up at one end & is attached to Jesse's X Box 360 which plays the DVD. All this attaches to an amp and speakers he has around the yard. It is quite the set up.

We watched a Star Wars video that is a cartoon. I think it was called Clone Wars. It was a movie for kids, but since we had little kids, that is what we watched. The kids loved it. Kenzie, Ethan, Jesse & I sat in the jacuzzi to watch. Everyone else sat at the edge of the jacuzzi & Mike even floated in the pool to watch the movie.

This was only the 2nd time we have set up to watch a movie outdoors. Don't know why we don't do it more often. It is quite fun. You will all have to come over some summer night & we will watch a "Swim in" movie together.
