This summer has been FLYING by!!! We have had so much going on lately, with work and all our extra activities we definitely have been keeping busy. Our ward has discovered my husband can not say no! We were in charge (with one other lady) of a stake picnic! thats right.... STAKE! If you don't know what that means, well... it means a LOT of people. I went friday to prep with Sis. Glover (who was awesome) and then we were there all sat serving and having fun! It was a lot of work but I think it turned out very well. We were then asked to be one of the main people in charge of a tri-ward camp. I was so stressed out! But thankfully it was cancelled due to all the fires here in Utah, which have been so scary! During these 2 weeks of craziness I also made 2 birthday cakes!! This was actually fun for me though. I love my new hobby of cake decorating and am so excited I am starting to get requests! I am no professional (thanks to my mother-in-law my fondant skills look excellent thanks to my cake cricut she got me for Christmas) but I think I am improving! Here they are:
We then found out that our Honda Civic (that we shipped off with my parents to be sold in Canada) sold!!!!! yay! The plan was to sell the beautiful Civic (who we will miss dearly) and buy 2 older cars so Brian can stop taking the bus for 4 hours a day, and so I could buy a more family-friendly ride! I found my car pretty fast. I have always wanted an Audi A4. Probably thanks to my parents who have brainwashed me into thinking they are the best cars ever (which they are). We went and looked at quite a few but this one was definitely the nicest for the best price. I am so excited to be driving a dream car of mine! It is an older 2001 but I still think it looks brand new!
And the last think I have to blab on about today is July 4th! I will admit, I was pretty bummed to miss Canada day, but we ended up having a really fun time thanks to Sina and her family. They always think about us and invite us to such fun things! I love having some family close. They had a neighbourhood "parade which was so cute! All the kids on the block decorated their bikes and rode around behind a police and fire escort. Pretty fancy! Then then had a delicious BBQ with all the neighbours. Brian had much more than his fair share of burgers thats for sure!
All in all we have had a great month! And can't wait for the rest of the summer. My family is coming down again the end of July and we still have the houseboat at lake Powell to look forward too! More posts to come!
