When Joel's parents got called to Panama on their mission, we decided that we would have to go visit them. I filled out all of the passport information and took some passport photos. Here are their mug shots:
Wesley had the camera and took a lot of pictures (of course they are a bit blurry because we were running so fast!)After the marathon we had a great week staying at a rental house right on the beach. The kids even swam in the freezing waters.
We were all a little cold most of the time we were in Oregon (the highs were in the 60's every day), but it was Joel's favorite weather. He even asked me if I wanted to move there...but I need more sun and snow.
We took another trip down to Utah for the kids BYU summer camps. Ammon and Preston were gone from Monday morning until Saturday morning, so we were able to spend some time with the younger ones. We showed them around temple square, then we all went to see the Joseph Smith Movie (except Caroline, who was bored of it after 20 minutes). Then we went to the Lion House for dinner and the reflecting pool in front of the temple.
We finished off by going in to listen to a few songs by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (we didn't see Uncle David). They even sung "Consider the Lillies of the Field". It was so much more beautiful to listen to it live, then on tv during conference.
My little baby and my big baby even sleep the same.
For the 4th of July, we went to the annual Gemtek Boise Hawks Baseball game. It was very hot, but we still had a good time. We even had a great barbecue dinner.
Emery and Wesley got to run the bases after the game ended. They loved it. It all ended with a great fireworks show (that Caroline hated because she hates fireworks).
