Boise Weekend

This weekend, Kyle and I went to Boise for one of my friends weddings. When we got there we met up with my parents and sisters family at a nursing home that my great great uncle was in. When I was about 5 years old at a family reunion I met my Uncle Ralph and he became my best friend there. We haven't seen each other since then so it was really great to see him! It was sad though because he was so frail and not like he used to be at all. He used to be the funny guy and now he is really quiet and lost a ton of weight an his wife fell a while ago and broke her arm in 2 places and shes in a sling and cast. It was a good visit but still sad...

Then we went to my friend Laurie's and had dinner and met up with a family we knew out in Jersey that she had nannied for. That was fun meeting up with them and catching up with them. Her wedding was going to be in the Boise Temple and Kyle and I both forgot our recommends so we had to call the Temple and they had to get a hold of our Bishop and they had to have a temporary recommen at the recommend desk so that was cool... Then we went to sleep at her apartment which was hotter than it was outside and it was HOT outside! It was crazy how hot her apartment was! The next day was her wedding at the Boise Temple. Luckily they had our temporary recommends so we could go in. It was cool to be at another sealing other than my own. But it was the hottest day of the year at a record breaking temperature so pictures outside were ridiculously hot and her reception was outside too at her new husbands HUGE house! It was beautiful though! Poor Laurie though was throwing up all day and naseous all day because of nerves and the heat and everything so that sucked. But after the reception we drove home late... ugh but although it was super hot it was still a really fun weekend!

4th Of July

This was our first 4th of July this year. We weren't able to go see big fireworks together because Kyle had to work but Melissa was up in Logan with family for the traditional fireworks. On the 4th Kyle was able to come up and spend time with everybody and it was so fun. We had BBQ, played games, watched some fireworks. It was so fun!! We had Traxton with us as well so it was a nice family outing.
