On one hand I get to catch up on shows/movies I have never seen or those that I haven't seen in a while. On the other hand, it's a time sucker.
It's a serious problem...when shows/movies I haven't seen before/a long time are on, I can't do anything but watch. It's awful! I can't get much done around the apartment because I am glued to the TV.
Devin absolutely hates it. He gets so upset, which is understandable, I would too if I were wanting to get somewhere on time and my wife wasn't helping because she was watching TV.
I think it runs in my family, both of my sisters do it, and my brother does sometimes but not as much as we do. It's not just bad. It's pretty bad.

Devin's brother had a sweet little boy, Canon Brooks Bryce!
My brother's kids, Keegan and Braxton. They are both clones of my brother! Its crazy cute!
Devin's family reunion.
His family camps about 3 miles from my cabin, so were were able to drive to my cabin to shower. It was nice! :)
We played lots of board games and cards! The boys went on lots of quad rides. We also went to a place called Harris Cave sadly I forgot my camera so I didn't get any pictures, but everybody had lots of fun! My family has been going there for years so I thought it would be fun to take the Bryce's to go see it!
Every Friday we have a huge bon fire; it was so big! It was as tall as Devin, (as you can see below.)
My sister in law does hair and she braided my hair all fancy like! I loved it! :)
His reunion is completely different than mine. His, everyone can do what ever they want, nothing is really planned. However my family reunion, everything is planned. So it's a different experience to get used to!

My Family Reunion.
We stayed at my cabin for a whole week with most of my siblings and Dad and Karen. Well I did, Devin came up on Thursday for the reunion with Timmy.
That first week we had a nice time and did all sorts of things; the little kiddies hung out with grandpa and made lots of bird feeders. We ran down Greens Peak, and had a picnic at the bottom.
When the reunion actually started, we had lots of fun. For a family activity night my immediate family and I put on a gameshow, we did "Minute to Win it." Friday and Saturday nights we had a couple of dances and played a very intense game of mingle! We Browns LOVE that game! :)
We had some fun games for the little kiddies to play. We just had lots of fun! I love family reunions! It's always fun to catch up with all my cousins! :)
Minute to Win it!

For the past 3 Summers I have been a Resident Assistant for a summer camp known as "Summer Enrichment Program", S.E.P. for short. It's a science based camp to boost teens' self esteem and to help them realize their potential, and that they can do anything, even something big in life.
The kids have classes everyday, learning new things. It's pretty cool! I love every minute of my time there; its a great opportunity to do something great for kids, and to help them change their lives!
It's SUPER exhausting; especially waking up at 5:30 every morning. Then going to bed at 12 o'clock midnight, not fun, but worth it!
I help plan fun activities for them to do and especially ice breakers to help them meet new people and kinda get out of their comfort zone.
I miss it already. However, sadly they say that this was the last year. So I won't be able to do it again, unless they get the funds to do it.
Photo: There are the other RA's that I worked with. I know, we all look like our eyes are on fire, but what can you do when you take the picture with your phone!? I miss them all....well most of them... One of the RA's I couldn't stand, but it's over with and I don't have to see him again!
