Mission Call

Our most exciting news - 

Braxton's mission call came in the mail on Wednesday!
Opening his call . . .
He will be serving in Carlsbad, California and leaving October 10, 2012!
We have a lot to get done before then and I am sure it will go super fast!  We will miss Braxton terribly, but are so proud of him!

Family Reunion

We had our family reunion at Downata Hot Springs July 13-15. It was my parents and all my siblings and our families.  There are 36 of us now - everyone was there with the exception of Jacob (my oldest nephew) who is serving a mission.  It was great fun!  I think I have mentioned before that I have the most amazing family.  Here's what happened - in pictures, a lot of them:)

Happy Fourth!!

We loved the Fourth of July - always a great time:)

Lauren, McKell and Savanna - model time!
Hollie always paints all the girls' fingernails and toenails and
they always look amazing.
The Idaho Falls parade with cousins
We got to watch Haylie in the parade.
It is her last year - she has grown up too fast
A picnic after the parade with our Cook cousins - love them
More picnic fun and the homemade rootbeer was fabulous!
We got to meet our newest niece/cousin who was just a few days old
Cooling off at Hollie's
Looking good Savanna!
A quick stop at McDonald's before the fireworks
The kids loved the fireworks
And so did the adults

A great day!!

Dance Reviews

Once again, McKell had three fabulous nights of dance reviews.  Seriously, I love them more each year.  Her dance studio does such a great job and her teachers are so wonderful. 

Berkley, Lizzie and McKell at "Colors" dress rehearsal
McKell and Lizzie were Lime Green:)
She did her tap dance to "Lime in the Coconut"
The finale - she is way in the back in this picture
The third night was the concert - McKell was in three competitive
dances this year.
"Pop, Drop and Roll" was a super cute dance, but
the makeup was killer.  I am glad I survived.
And "Runaway Baby"
Flowers for our fabulous dancer - she did great!
