I Love Summer Weekends

I should have posted these sooner, but I've been a little preoccupied with ultra-important stuff. We brought my little brother Brandon and his Nintendo Wii home with us on Sunday.

**Word of caution: Don't even pick up the Wii remote unless you've got hours to spare and don't want to be in bed before midnight!!!

So we travelled to Eastern Idaho for the holiday weekend. My adorable little nephew, Christopher, turned one-year-old on July 2. We had a party for him on July 4th with volleyball, slip-and-slides, barbeque, and fireworks. The city of Menan was sure excited to celebrate his birthday! ;)

Fun was had by all, but all the photos to prove it are on Mom's fancy camera. I'll have to update later.

We were also fortunate enough to attend Monte's & Barb's annual 4th of July barbeque in St. Anthony.

Always good times. This year's festivities, however, included one activity I could have lived without. Danny lost a football bet last October, and the 4th was the predetermined reckoning day. A picture's worth a thousand words, so I'll just let it do the explaining.

Valerie and I pretty much shared the same reaction.

We spent some time in Chester at Grandpa and Grandma Hermosillo's. I am again reminded that I need to hire a personal photographer to follow us around because we didn't get any pictures taken. I did catch Valerie growling at Grandpa's bear, though.

I have been informed that this weekend will be spent camping and boating at C.J. Strike. With a seven-year-old, a thirteen-year-old, and a husband that doesn't believe in growing up, I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for...
Stay tuned for details.

Well don't you know how to make a girl feel good about herself! Thanks Angela. Sailing was seriously so cool. If you ever get a chance, you should try it. I was really sad that we couldn't take Owen. He would have loved it. Don't be too enchanted, Idaho will always be home and our favorite place to be. Dorothy said it best.
