These pancakes are the best.
I went to the doctor for some routine stuff and my arm suffered greatly from a blood draw.
Saturday date in Provo - we made soap.
Little Hal had a dance recital. Mostly chaos.
Way overdue to try out the Lodge at Snowbird. Day pass for the win!
We visited the nieces and Anthony went to take a nap on the couch - they followed him and "napped" too.
She is just a doll.
Ogden Twilight - Bonobo was so good.
So back in May while I was home visiting my parents, we got a call that my cousin Brittanny was rushed to the hospital, and she passed away very unexpectedly. We don't know for sure what happened, as she wasn't ill. Maybe a blood clot. We are the same age, so this is pretty shocking. I wasn't able to attend her service, but I'll always remember her love of the beach.
We did have a nice lunch after nearby at a church, and I will always be thankful for people who provide meals at funerals. One less thing to think about. I will definitely sign up to help next time there is a funeral where I can help serve food. It was a really sad occasion but also nice to gather everyone together.
All Ryan's cousins from both sides of the family.
Cousins kids together.
Yep, she's telling the little ones what to do. This is how I grew up.
On to happier things - we got cupcakes later that evening and found a carnival.
A little soccer.
Some Waffle Love on the way to Ogden Twilight again.
Anthony's family reunion! There are 12 kids in his mom's family, so every 12 years each sibling plans it, and this year it was my mother-in-law's turn. We all helped out in planning. We brought games and the meat and everyone else brought sides and desserts. We had yum food and then got to swim in the park, which we had all to ourselves. Still like 150 people or something....big ole Mormon families...
