July Birthdays

Here we are celebrating Mitchell's 10th birthday
Morgan had a sweet 16 party. They swam, ate, and played. Here they are playing the candy bar game. It was a lot of fun.
Morgan takes her turn as well. Looking so cute in that hat!
Morgan's Sleepover, playing curses

Morgan got the same card from both Grandma's. It was fun and they are both very generous.

Reeds in Rexburg

Alicia, Carlee and I went up to Rexburg last weekend to visit Deelinda and had a girls party weekend! Deelinda showed us the sights in Rexburg - including her apartment and R mountain. Rexburg is a crazy, awesome town, let me tell you. We had a fun hike and a great photo session on the top of R mountain, as well as a jam session to Bohemian Rhapsody on the drive back. Here are some photos of our adventure...
Thanks, DeeDee! You're amazing!

PS - Though Alicia is sadly misrepresented as far as number of pictures she is in, this is due to the fact that she was our most successful picture taker. She is also in a plethora of blurry or failed photos that didn't make the cut. Sorry, girl.

Check out who's on the pitchers mound. I guess moving Nate and Sam up to fast pitch a year early was a good decision. Marlo said he was a little nervous when they started Nate out as pitcher. He looked so little out there with 7th and 8th graders. He didn't do too bad striking out the first 3 batters. Sam played 2nd right behind him. Sam was also the teams hard hitter. He hit 2 doubles. They don't quit surprising us.

Ok, Kenna, here goes. I've never blogged so I hope this turns out ok. On our way home from St. George, Marlo had a great idea to just head south and go to the Grand Canyon. He said it would only take 1 hour. That didn't seem too long, but I don't think he considered the hour back up and the couple of hours hiking. Despite my scepticism, it was beautiful. I did however hold tight to either Kaleb or Malachi while Marlo had the other one. And the boys got tired of me saying "Get down from there" in a frantic mothers voice.
