The Summer Trip - Part 2

We made it home at last. Six weeks was a long time for the kids and I to be gone. We had lots of fun everywhere we went.
After our awesome week and a half at Jill's house in Nebraska we headed to Utah.
We saw my sister Ronda and her family. My kids had a lot of fun playing with their cousins.
We had a whole week of Jones Family fun.
For Dan's family reunion we...
... did a service project by picking up trash along a walking trail in American Fork, UT.
...had a fabulous BBQ at Dan's brother's house complete with two waterslide-bouncehouses!
...had a mile long hike to a duck pond.
...had a picnic at a splash park.
...had the July birthday celebration at a park followed by a family baseball game.
...went to a play, Cinderella, in which our niece, Brynley, was a mouse. The girls and I also had a "princess tea party" before the play. Thank you Grandmama!
Then we headed to my sister Sally's house for her baby Annalee's baby blessing.
We got to see lots of other friends too.
We are glad to be home and the kids are looking forward to school starting. Adam especially! He gets to go to Miss Sue's preschool this year. He asks me every day when he gets to go.
The one bad part is that we forgot our camera at Sally's house!!! Grrrr. I was so good to not forget it the whole trip, and then I forget it the very last morning! Someday you might get to see some of the pictures!

A family service project - now there's a good strong family! Awesome idea! I wish my summer had been that eventful... it sounds fun. I can't wait to see pictures. Did you say hi to everyone in West Point 12th for me? :)
