The Past Month

June was a very busy month for us Kyler turned 17. Pete took the young men (16-17 year old) in the ward to Lake Powell. We had our annual house boat trip with friends to Lake Powell and my parents gave my grandmother an 80th Birthday party.
First Kyler's birthday was like a week long celebration. The Sunday before we had my parents come over. We had a barbecue in the rain, roast marshmallows and opened presents.

Then on Monday Pete took us all out to Texas Road House for dinner, and then on his birthday Kyler, Kayla, Braxtyn, Parker and I went to see Up and out to lunch. That night we had an ice cream cake from Maggie Moos.

The day after Kyler's birthday, Pete and Kyler left for lake Powell with 7 other boys and 3 other adults. Pete was a little nervous when he found out he was going with one member of the Bishop Ric and the Young Men's president (also a former Bishop). I was a lot nervous wondering what Pete would say and do, hoping it wouldn't be to bad, because I really didn't want to have to move. Kyler did not want to go he was trying everything he could to get out of it. But in the end they both ended up having a great time. They didn't convert either Pete or Kyler, but they all had fun and both of them made some really good friends. (and I can still live in the neighborhood Yeah!) I think they both would love to go again next year. It was really good for both of them.
Next Pete and Kyler got home on Saturday night and Pete and I turned around and left again for lake Powell on Wednesday for a week. It was great fun. We had 21 people on the house boat, we relaxed, played games, enjoyed great company and the perfect not to hot weather. We also
had the traditional crazy hat day.

Then three day after we got back my parent had an open house for my grandmothers 80th birthday. My sister had to work so I kept her girls, got them ready and took them to the party. We had fun getting ready and also at the party. They all looked so cute, Kayla took some picture.

Happy Birthday Grandma!
