Summer Games

Not the Utah Summer Games, but sort of. 
Summer 2016 was a fun summer.  Besides traveling to Europe with Mike, we were all able to spend so much time with family!! When we got back from Europe, Tandy and Children were here for a bit before heading to California to finish up their home-selling and car-picking-up and visiting duties in their transition from Guam to San Antonio. So much stuff to do!  But some of the time was spent here with us and we're so glad!

 Some of the time was spent doing food preservation and storage. Or just plain ol' eating. Like how many cherries did we pick from neighbors' trees and eat?  Many.  We gave away many. We canned a few. We dried a few.  Mostly we ate a LOT.  They were so good.

Then we tended for Katie and Casey. They went to Mexico for Casey's brother's wedding in Cabo San Lucas. They were all together with all his siblings and mom.  We tended the twins and the older boys went with them.  We had Hailey and Quintin with us for just over a week. I took the week off of work to do this. It was so much fun. A lot of work... I'm glad Eric was around to lend a hand, too. And Mike, of course.  He's good with babies, but he was busy with work stuff. I'm not as young as I used to be, so baby tending is a bit more of a challenge for me. But we all survived and I really enjoyed getting to know these little cuties a bit more.

 There were times in the summer when Nick and Kayley came down before Kaylee had their baby. Gail and Seth were between homes, too, so they visited. They were in the process of moving from Rock Springs to Elko , Nevada.  They came when Casey and Katie returned from Mexico.

 Eric shaved off his beard. He'd had it for months.
 Katie brought Kaylee a lot of boy hand-me-down clothes.
And one day this summer, I locked myself out of the house. It was a lovely day. Very relaxing and comfortable in the hammock in our back yard.
