A visit from Germany

Here's Will and MacKenzie. Will is from germany and lived with Bruce and Kathy for a year doing a foreign exchange program. He and his parents came through California for a visit and MacKenzie loved them!!! We all did, but MacKenzie cried when Will's mom left.

Remembering the pioneers

Here's a cute picture of my sister Khristie and her husband Bob on their "Trek" through the wilderness. Totally thought about them while they were gone and what they were recreating out there. I don't know how far they walked, but it wasn't as far as the original pioneers who sailed across oceans and then pushed and pulled handcarts across the country all for the sake of building up Zion. I love the pioneer stories of these people barely making it to Utah, if they made it at all, and doing it just because they were asked to by the leaders of the Church. What lessons of faith we can learn from those who have gone before.

Grandpa's face lift

Justin's dad had skin cancer removed from his nose and has to have a skin graft. Lucky for him he gets a free face lift in the process. He says it's not worth for any of you thinking about it :) Here are the girls with him the day after being sliced open. He and Kathy were at their time share at Ventura Beach while he was laying around recovering so they invited us to come for a few days and it was beautiful.

Here we are at the indoor carrousel on Rudolph. Kennedy LOVED it and had to go twice. The second time was with her Auntie Katelyn.

Pool Party

Last week Justin's older brother Jared and his family came to visit for a week from Utah. We invited our friends the Williams over at the same time and we had lots of fun swimming in the pool and eating. My favorite part was watching Nathan jump off the diving board regardless of the part where he really didn't remember how to swim. And he wanted to jump again. No fear! From L-R we have Ian, Nathan, MacKenzie and Kennedy (with her goggles on).

We tried to get Kennedy to give Nathan a kiss and he wasn't going for it at all :)
