Where Have We Been?

Last month seemed to just fly by. We were pretty busy and somehow I missed updating the blog at all.

Let's see what happened?

Jordan got baptised


and we had a lot of our family and friends come for that. It was a crazy weekend with way too many people in my house - but we had fun.


(I could comment on my Mother in Law's sudden involvement with having her hands on Jordan's shoulders but I'll keep my Mother In Law stories for another day)

We had two school performances - one from Jared


And then a week later from Jordan


When I go to school performances I can't help but think about when we were in England and we had school musicals like this you'll have to click on the video to check it out 1/2 way down the entry.

Right after Jordan's performance we continued rushing around to get Jared ready for his school Grand Canyon trip. I've never been and I'm a bit jealous but I really didn't want my first Grand Canyon trip to be on a bus with a ton of kids. I did have to laugh when Jackson said it was no fair that Jared got to see the Grand Canyon. When Jackson was in Year 6 in England (5th Grade) he went with his class on a ski trip to Switzerland. Let's talk about not fair!

I think Jared took some pretty good pictures
This is Mikey - he has been all over the world with us so of course he went to the Grand Canyon too!





And then this last Wednesday we made a drive out to the new Gila Valley Temple. This was the kid's second open house experience.

All those people were in staying with you. Wow, that is quite a house full!! I'll have to watch the video later. I'm guessing it puts our programs to shame. Skiing in Switzerland. I think that trumps the Grande Canyon! What a cool oportunity. Of course, all the field trips beat my childhood fieldtrip to the state capital to see the stuffed two-headed cow. That is a great picture of Jared at the GC. Glad you survived the busy month!

We had 11 at our house including our own family. But we had everyone in the picture over for a bbq after the baptism - except the Bishop.
