While we were in the west, we went camping in Wyoming, saw Mom's college friends in Utah, renewed relationships with brother's and sisters and cousins, All the girl cousins on the Kress side Great Grandma Keck has a Wii- you go Grandma! She wasn't so happy that Sam beat her at bowling though! Party with the Kress cousins after Debbie Wright had a near fatal accident. That she is alive and walking is a miracle. Meeting Great Grandpa Baird and Grandma and Grandpa Keck in Utah along with Uncle Timmy. Beautiful Aunt Maria The whole gang was up there for once- including the new in-law to be, Jordan's fiance Curtis and Monica's BFF Kyle and the most important (to our pet deprived kids anyway) Eddie the war dog!
visited with Grandma's and Grandpa's in Utah and Grandma's and Grandpa's in Idaho and Grandma's and Grandpa's in the other part of Idaho, went to a wedding, The siblings- Maria, David, Tom, Mark, Joseph, and Robert
missed two weddings (one of which Emma was suppose to be a bridesmaid in- sorry Jordan), saw a Pioneer day celebration, Missionaries in a parade- only in Utah!
went to waterparks, got a whole day to ourselves at a swimming pool,rode tubes in freezing cold rivers, braved the rapids, celebrated birthdays, When asked what cake he wanted for his birthday Joseph said, "of course, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting says eat me Joseph." So we made sure that the cake said exactly that! The second cake had a J on it out of candles.hiked 50 miles in the Sawtooth Mountains (Rob and his brother Mark and his nephew Kade only!), and generally just had lots of fun. It was a full and fabulous month!
