The past couple years we've been able to go to the pumpkin patch with Kellen and Caleb so we couldn't miss out on that even though it was pouring rain when we left home. You should have seen their faces when we turned the corner and all those pumpkins came into view! The sun came out and we had a great time.We are actually a little tired but always looking forward to our next adventure with the family.

We had so much fun helping Jennifer and Michael prepare for their wedding and reception, and it was great having them here with us for three weeks.
I timed it just right for my flight to Vegas to meet baby Carly, I was only there about 24 hours when she arrived healthy and beautiful as can be. I was with them about two weeks and had so much fun playing with Easton and bonding with Carly. Em and Steve are awesome parents and words can't describe what a joy it was to be able to help out during that time.
I took a little side trip to Beaver and was able to spend time with mom, my sisters and their families. It happened to be the 24th of July which is always so fun in Beaver, the best parade ever. I also attended my 40th class reunion and that was a real blast from the past, how wonderful to see the faces of my dear classmates again.
Yea for the class of 69!! We looked pretty darn good.
As soon as I returned it was time for the Leonard JOLLEY reunion at the coast and that was so fun. They really know how to have a good time and it was so good to see them. Bruce has a wonderful family and I love them all, we had Jennifer and Michael, Tina, Scott and their family and Marc and Connie and their family with us.
Jennifer and Michael were married August 15th and that brought our whole family together along with our wonderful friends. We are so happy for them and will love to hear all about their new life together in Provo, UT. We were able to spend time with all of our grandchildren and that doesn't happen often enough. MANY THANKS to all who were there in support of Jenni and Michael. It was wonderful!!! We had a super fun trip to Dallas Texas for the open house and loved meeting Michael's family and friends and seeing all the sights there, it's a beautiful city.

The tramp was a big hit, Kellen loved the sprinkler and we had a water fight.

Bruce is loving the nice days and his garden is growing, he wants you to know that the corn will be knee high by the 4th of July. He is busy doing his part of wedding prep, painting the back of the house and the clown bench, Yeah! Planting flowers and keeping the yard up.

Thirteen is such a wonderful age:) We love you Shay, Congrats on another great year of dance.
It was fun to see Bobbie and Dontea as well, they are doing great and send their love. Dontea is 16 and driving his own car. He is SO VERY HANDSOME! Wish I would have taken a picture of him for you.

I love this photo Emily took of Jennifer just after she received her diploma from BYUI April 10th. We are so proud of her and were so happy to be there with her for graduation and to celebrate all her hard work, it has been a wonderful experience for her. Congratulations Jenni!!!! We love you.
Emily and Easton made the long trek to Rexburg with us and he was such a good little traveler and was patient during graduation. President Clark and Elder Neil Anderson were the speakers.
Bruce has a way of making the trip more fun with rest stops in unusual places. The first stop was Hoodoo and then Riley which I don't have a photo of because it was freezing cold and I wouldn't get out of the car but he ate his candy bar on the bench in the cold wind.
Here we are at Massacre Rock, you haven't lived until you have visited this place, also cold and windy. Below we are at the natural spring water fountain, it's tradition to stop there for a rest, Easton was just about to fall asleep and against Emily's better judgement we stopped anyway. Notice her adorable pregnant tummy:)
Jennifer's roommates, Lindsay, Brooke, and Anessa joined her for Stephanie's wedding along with returned missionary Michael Woodmansee. Welcome Home Michael!!
We were all honored to be with Stephanie and Jarom on their wedding day and it was beautiful in every way from start to finish. We love you and wish you happiness ever after.
After a trip to Saturday market they are headed back to Rexburg, Seattle and Las Vegas. We are left with our memories which we treasure.
