Summer Fun

Marie taught Sarah and cousin Emma how to sew a dress this summer. Pretty cute.
The garden. Thanks to Bob for tilling it.
Joel at Camp Jeremiah Johnson learning about geology. I like my calling as Webelo leader.
Careful you'll shoot your eye out.

Having fun jousting
Robin eggs in our burr oak tree.
On Saturday the 25th we had our first ever yard sale. Our neighbors across the street were having a huge two day sale, but we opted to keep ours small. My policy was to keep selling until there was no more shade. We made $100 all of which will be donated to the Jaredita Foundation to help educate children in Indonesia. http://jaredita.org/

Sunday evening we had Suleiman from Oman come to dinner. He is a friend of a friend who came to BYU to study English for 8 months. He goes home in August and has never been up into the mountains so we took him to see Bridal Veil falls.
The Provo River is full and fast. The kids (Will in particular) were under strict orders not to go anywhere near the river.
We then drove up to Squaw Peak for a view of Utah Valley.

  2. I need to learn how to sew sometime as well!! Aunt Marie, you are amazing!!
