What's new with me?

So here's what July brought my way . . .

Aren't these girls awesome? They had a swim party at the Aikele's, followed by a slumber party at my house followed by an all day trip to San Francisco, then back to my house for a dinner and devotional to end our mini conference.

The more time I spend with them the more I love 'em!

It was a memorable and fun day for all.

The next week I was off to drive 4 boys to Rexburg for AFY. Then I headed to Michele's to hang out the next 4 days with these two . . .

Boston and Naomi made friends with a stray kitty, played in their new sandbox, rode bikes, snuggled, told stories, and made a trip to Toys R Us with Grandma.

Aren't they cute?

I hated to say goodbye . . .

but these boys (Landon, Kyle, Johnny, & Tanner C) were waiting for me in Rexburg. They said their week was AWESOME! and it was the best week of their life . . .

I was so glad - especially as I drove for 17 1/2 hours straight that day just to make it to Truckee at 1:30 am where we crashed for the night and headed home the next day. I LOVE these boys - so I'd do it all again, but I did determine that BYU-Idaho was located WAY the heck out there. I can think of a lot more convenient places to put a major LDS university - like ANYWHERE near an airport!!! Just saying :)

Fireworks with the Grandkids

We took a quick trip to see Michele and John and the grandkids and their new home they just moved in to. We went to the zoo, took the kids to their first movie at the theater - Cars 2, and did a lot of relaxing, playing in the yard, and hanging out. It was a lot of fun! Our last night there John broke out the fireworks and we sat in their court on a beautiful summer night and watched the fireworks - or watched the kids - they were both very entertaining. As you can see:
