Happy Campers

On June 18th we went camping with Grandma and Grandpa Quist, Uncle Paul and Aunt Beth and their kids. We had a fun time and our friends the Burnetts came up to enjoy the cool mountain air with us. The kids had an awesome time learning to play kick the can with their cousins. We went on some fun buggy rides and when it got dark we went spotlighting and saw tons of elk. Adam made a zip line, the kids had fun for hours on that thing. We couldn't have campfires because it was just to dry so that was a bummer, but we did play with glow-in-the-dark bubbles and had fun playing with glow sticks. We also played frisbee golf, went on some fun hikes, and played lots of games. It was a fun filled week of camping.

Rober's Baptism/ Torren's Blessing

On June 9th, My nephiew Robert (Paul's son) was baptised, and on June 10th my nephiew Torren (Russ's son) was blessed.  I am so grateful that we were able to go to the valley share in the joy of these blessed events.
Ben and Suzi were kind enough to let us stay at their home during our visit. We enjoyed their hospitality.
On Sunday after the blessing, we drove by the new Gilbert, AZ Temple, which is currently under construction. It is such a beautiful and magnificent building. Afterwards we gathered at my parents home and spent a few hours visiting and playing games with everyone.
We were also able to take a little time to visit with Adam's Grandma and Grandpa Gurr. It was great to see Grandpa In such good health.
We are grateful for our extended families and the love and joy they bring into our lives.

A Visit From Ben And Suzi

On the very last day of school, We had some fun visitors arrive from the valley. My Brother Ben and his family came up for a few days. We played games, went for buggy rides, and played outside to our hearts content.
Their boys, Braxton and Kent are so cute!
We hope they can come and visit us again soon.

Feild day!

It seemed like the kids had one party after another on the last week of school. I was able to help out with the annual field day, and I had a lot of fun watching the kids play tug-o-war, have sack races,do the monkey bars, limbo, and get very, very wet from the fire truck.
Sarah was the prettiest monkey on the playground!

Thank you fire firghters for making the day so much fun.

GO ELIZA!!! Your're in the lead!

Caleb didn't let the cool wind stop him from getting soaked!

The kids had a wonderful school year and even though they are enjoying the summer, they already miss their teachers so much and can't wait to give them a big hug when school starts again next year.
