Four of Gary & Corrine's kiddos! David, Daniel, poppa Gary, Kim & April

Silly Face!!!

I knew it was time to go when I saw Zai standing at the door looking for his shoes!

Last week April told me that David, Kelly and their two girls were coming to the States and would be visiting Vegas this last week. Gary asked if they could have dinner at her home Saturday night, and always a willing host, she said yes! It was an awesome night of family and fun! We brought over the fruit and tables, Gary & Connie brought steaks, April and Jeremy provided the baked potatos & toppings, Kim made super yummy baked beans & guacamole, and Amy made the best rolls you could ask for! How could a night of food and visiting possibly end? Well it had to end with a half an hour of picture taking! Ha ha ha! It was great to catch up with everyone and just enjoy eachother's company. I love getting together with this family....it's just like when we were kids! I hope next time Bill, Crystal & family can join us! Love them all lots!

Big Help

So my BFF (and probably the only one to read my blog) Lois decided they were ready for a real flagpole in their yard so in June they decided to ask Bro Donald Lawson to come over and change out thier stump for a real flag pole. We were up bright and early that morning too so we headed over with donuts in hand. It was great because Don had no clue where to begin....except at one of the other ward members' homes to look at how he put in his flagpole! Zai was super excited to jump right in and give Don a hand! Once Lois pulled out the tool box it was over! Zai ran right out, pulled out some wrenches, rope and even tried to lift up the sledge hammer! We all had busy days planned out as our young women were getting ready to go to girls camp and we had a super yummy bbq planned. Unfortunately when we got ready to leave Zai did not want to leave with us! We even got in the car and acted like we were driving off! We ended up having to drag him kicking and screaming! It was a beautiful day with wonderful friends and my awesome boys! Oh yeah....and miraculously Don got that flagpole put in and our wonderful red, white & blue looks great each day I drive past the Sanders' home!
