Let the summer begin!

Griffin went to the doctor Monday to have his elbow checked. GOOD NEWS, no cast. Everything was healing great and he got his wrap taken off. So he now can look forward to swim lessons and finishing up baseball as well as reunions and just enjoying the summer.

A minor casualty this summer

Last week, Griffin (Jolene's son) fell off some playground equipment and hurt his elbow. The ex-rays couldn't tell if there was a fracture or just over-extended. So he is in a sling and has it wrapped til this next Monday when he goes back to the Doctor. A cast might be put on at that time. (We hope not!)

Reagan and Kenidee gave Griffin a get well present and cards. What thoughtful cousins. (Of course then they helped him eat the Starburst all gone.)

Addison is growing up soooo fast!

I went to Jolene's house a week ago; because she was experiencing stomach pain. After seeing 3 doctors over a 2 day period; they finally decided that she needed her appendix out. So after about 1 1/2 hours of lazer surgery, she got it taken care of. So I took her kids for a couple of days to give her a rest. She recovered so quickly that it was just amazing!

Addison loved the walker at my house. She had no trouble figuring out how every thing worked.

Addison is scooting all around on the floor. She has no trouble getting to any given point in a room. Full crawling is just a few days away I suspect. Then WALKING! Who do you think she looks like?

A fun day at the Ogden Cannery!

Scott and I decided that we needed to update our food storage.
So Jennifer got us an appointment for last Saturday for one hour at the dry pack cannery.
What a great time we had. Here Austin and Scott fill the cans, while Irene makes sure there is food to put in the cans.

After the cans were filled Jennifer made sure they were sealed and then I labeled each one.
Shawnee filled the boxes with 6 cans and labeled each box so we knew what was in there.

After we got over the "shock" of looking pretty geeky; we really did have a fun time. We filled enough boxes that each family got 8 boxes of dry food. Thanks to the missionaries that worked at the cannery. They were a great help and even made us laugh.
