I can't ever decide which holiday if my favorite, 4th of July or Christmas. But, hands down this year it will most definitely be 4th of July. Sweet Blake will be returning home after serving a 24 month mission. I promised him a big homecoming and what better day than on the 4th with all of its fireworks and bar b q. What a great young man he has become and he is an awesome example to me in so many ways.

This is all 8 of the sweetest and greatest grandkids in the world. We went on our annual pizza pumkin picnic in the perry park.

We always love that Grandma Dixie comes to have fun and hang out with us.

I really should not take pictures of people eating.
What a really great day.

A bit of Heaven on Earth

Meg organized the first annual Jay and Barb Jenkins Family reunion. It was a huge success. We went to Lava Hot Springs for two nights. We camped and swam and did some tubing on the river. We ate the best meals, had activities for the kiddos and sat around the camp fire. We enjoyed being together and just plain old having a super wonderfu time. We missed Elder Jenkins and look forward to him being with us next year. We really don't want him any other place right now than where he is at. I say this often but I have to say it again. I love my family and I am so grateful for each one. I thank each one of you for a wonderful new tradition and a super weekend.

My little brothers visit

My little brother lives in Texas and one of my sisters lives in Idaho. It is a too rare occasion that all 4 of can get together. Scott was in town for his sons graduation from the U of U. We had a great visit with him and his wife Rose. It was so great to see them.
I cannot believe that Luke is old enough to graduate from kindergarten. It seems like just last year that he was a tiny little guy. He is such a super reader, loves to play with his legos. He is loving Tball. He is an awesome big brother to his three little sisters. I love you Luke!
