Baby Brother

My baby brother Quinn got married this week to his sweetheart Mandi. They make the cutest couple with their great smiles and curly hair. Ellie was beside herself with excitement to be a flower girl. Mandi was sweet and let Ellie hold her train for pictures.

They were married in the Salt Lake Temple and then had the most gorgeous and fun outdoor reception I've ever been too. Quinn was only 5 when Steve and I were married, so it was pretty crazy to see my baby brother get hitched. We love you Quinn and Mandi!


Some friends gave us tickets to a SL Real Soccer game this weekend. But these were not just any tickets! Box seats with a gourmet buffet and a waiter for our box! We had a great view on the field and our team won 4 to 0 after the other team had a player ejected with a red card. After watching the game with royal treatment there was a Pioneer Day fireworks show at the stadium. It was the best fireworks show I have seen in years!

The Big 12!

I can't believe Daniel is 12! He had a fun birthday party with a couple close friends going to the movies and then everyone sang to him at Uncle Quinn's Wedding Dinner that night.

Today Daniel's dad ordained him to the Aaronic Priesthood, with his Grandfathers participating. He was so excited to be getting the Priesthood and I now he will be a wonderful Deacon! We are so proud of you Daniel!

Week Long Scout Camp by Daniel

Scout camp was fun and great! I earned the Rifle shooting merit badge, the Archery merit badge, Leather Work, Orienteering, and Environmental Science merit badges. We had great food. For dinner we had game hens, steak, and other great stuff. And we played cube in between merit badges. It was fun! Although the first few days it poured, and poured and poured rain. But then the rest of the days it was sunny and great. Although the one down side to the camp, was there were literally thousands of mosquitoes everywhere. You had to coat yourself 5 times a day with bug repellent. Even then you got tons of bites. All the bug bites I got were on the back of my head. It made it painful to sleep because the bug bites were pressing against my pillow. My brother Steve came to the camp to help me out and I really appreciated it. :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
