Can I just tell you what a great ward we have. Even though not many people showed up, it was so much fun just hanging out with everyone that was there.
The kids has such a good time fishing. Not that the fish was anything to catch....check out the size, but they had fun and spent most of the time down at the pond.
Thanks to Bro. Olsen and all those that helped with the camp out. Especially thanks to our Bishop. We are so blessed to have such a great man as our Bishop.

I thought for sure that Wal Mart would have a batman cake but when I went to get one, nope.....so I had to make one. Kay so I am not so good on the cake part but I sure thought the decorations were good.
I love having the family over. Wish we could have them all together. Maybe one day.

The day has come and now gone. We have talked about his farewell for a while now and here it is. We had a full house at church which was really nice. Even though Justin waited until early this morning to write his talk, his talk was very powerful. The spirit was very strong. I don't think there was a dry eye in the chapel.
Many old friends that have moved came back to hear Justin speak. And many friends. 'And he has Many Friends'. I wonder if Justin has any idea how many people he has touched.
I think we had over 100 people come to our house after church for lunch and a good visit. It was fun to see him surrounded by all of his friends.
He enters the MTC on Wednesday. Florida ~ watch out.....Here he comes. They are very lucky to get you as a missionary. Thanks Justin for being such a great example and friend to us. We will miss you.

The promise day finally came.
Zoee called this the Promise day because last time we went to Lagoon, Grandma picked up the wrong tickets. I got the meal tickets not the ride tickets. (another blond moment). We promised to bring her back with Grandpa and Dad the next time. Jed only get a few Saturdays off a year from the Temple so we have to take advantage of it when we can. We keep him very busy on those days off!
It was lot's of fun. I love watching how excited the kids get when they get to go on rides. The pool was at full capacity this day so it wasn't until 7 PM that we finally got to cool down in the pool. We were all ready for that. Briggs and Tysen were not big enough for any rides so we all took turns. They were so good.

I thought that I would put out a reminder that Justin will be speaking next Sunday 7/13/08 before he departs for Tampa Florida.
We will be having a light luncheon here at our house at noon. (After the 3 hour block)
Bring your lawn chair to stay and visit....

Thank you Colleen and Craig for letting us come to your home and enjoy time with the family.
We all had so much fun. I am so glad you had a pink horse for Evva to ride. jk
Last year we missed the 4th with my family and It was very hard. I promised I would not miss it again. Jed (and Tim...thank you Tim) is so good to go to Provo and watch the parade. I know many of the in laws just don't understand the parade thing with our family but it has been a tradition as long as I can remember. I love Provo. I love the Parade. I love my family!!
It was fun to visit with everyone. When we left Jed was laughing. He said "you sure can tell who has a blog in your family" So today, I had to catch him up on everyone and their blogs.

Unlawful discrimination can be characterized as direct or subtle. Direct discrimination involves treating someone less favorably because of their possession of an attribute (e.g., sex, age, race, religion, family status, national origin, military status, disability)
So can I just say that I am very angry & hurt!
Derrik is such a good hard worker. He can out work many people without disabilities and yet... He went and applied for a job with a landscaping company and they told him they could not hire him because he had a disability and limped. (But he can speak English).
I think this guy needs a wake up call. So just for fun, Desi called to see if they were hiring and see how much he would pay. The guy said that she should have called in May when he needed flowers to be planted.
I don't know about you but he needs to be turned in!!
Derrik is much better off not working for someone like that but still......
Okay, now that I have vented to everyone~I feel much better (kind of) I still want to hurt him. I have that right, don't I?
Isn't it a mom thing?
