Happy Late Fourth and I'm Back from Vacation!

Hello Friends!

Did you all miss me?  I'm back from my 10 day vacation!  PHEW!  So happy we don't have anything else planned until November.  I am wiped out!  I drove the kids to Karlee's over a week ago and then we both caravanned to Utah Sunday after church.

For the 4th of July we watched the Freedom Festival Parade in Provo, Utah.  Then we met at a park for a picnic with Bryan's family, after we went swimming at the Pleasant Grove Pool, then we met for pizza at Bryan's brother's house, and finished the night with fireworks at the Pleasant Grove Middle School.  WOW!!  It was an AWESOME day!!  I love my time in Utah with all of my extended family. I sure miss living near them!

This is the new Provo Temple (which there will be 2 now!)  We were so happy to be staying in a hotel right next to it so we could drive by it everyday.  If you have ever seen an LDS Temple you know how beautiful they are!  This one is going to be gorgeous!

I also was able to get quite a few scrapbook pages done on our 18 hour drive home.  Here is a quick one I made.  I am only 3 1/2 years behind now!! WOWZA!!  

Also, wanted to let everyone know who is interested that we are starting the Book of Mormon Book Club in one week, on Monday, July 15.  I still have extra copies of the Book of Mormon if you would like me to send you one to read and discuss with us.  It is such a great book to read!  I feel inspired to live my life better every time I pick it up.  Just send me an e-mail at and I will send you out a copy in the next few days so you get it in time.  I will start a separate page for those of you who are in the Book Club where we can share with each other.  

Big hugs to all of you!
