Very belated wedding pictures

I know it has been over a year since Lauren got married, but I recently got some pictures that her sister-in-law took at the temple and I really like them and not wanting to inundate Facebook with them I thought I'd post them here.

My sister, Susan, and her husband Bryan

Week of unexpected happenings

Andy has been at the BYU football camp this last week and has really enjoyed it.  He said it was much more fun than last year, well until he got injured that is.  On Wednesday he separated his shoulder during a drill run.  The BYU trainers looked at it and made sure nothing was broken.  He has it in a sling for now.  He is coming home from Utah with our friends the Russell's since their daughter, Ellyse, was at the BYU swim camp at the same time.  We got a few pictures from the Russell's of Andy and it looks like he's having a great time with them!

25 feet up in a tree, apparently he climbed it one handed!

In the Russell's van with Chuck driving.  Yes he's eating something which equals happiness!

Meanwhile Brian and I decided he needed to go to Kansas City to look for job opportunities.  He had had some phone interviews for a job there and when that fell through he felt he should drive out there.  He has a friend he served with on his mission that lives there and my friend from college who lives in Topeka that he will be staying with.  So far he's liked what he's seen.

Can't go wrong with Kansas City BBQ!

I have to include the happy news from our good friends here, the Cottrell's.  Their daughter was expecting their first grand child right after Lauren's baby is due and they had a happy surprise when she came two and a half weeks early!  What glowing grandparents they are!

Carl, Candace and baby London Kae

I hope to add a similar picture of my own soon!

More crafts with Eric, Emma, Peter, and Lucy

This is an awesome shot!  Dad threw the ball to Andy from the other end of the pool and Andy would dive in sideways to catch it.  Bryan got the perfect shot!

Emma's Road Trip

Emma and her three friends went on a short little road trip to Utah and Temple Square.  She went with her friends, Saige and Shiloh Winters and Emily Miller.  Andy tagged along a bit since Brian drove him down for BYU's football camp.

My Cute Pregnant daughter

Okay Lauren posted these photos of herself and her husband Matt tonight and they were too cute not to put them here on the blog!  Three more weeks until we meet baby Van!

Memorial Day

Memorial weekend was full of activities.  We had a family reunion in Midway Utah at the Homestead.  This is our 7th year there.  We had a great time.

Posing with the green frog

We got to baptize Peter and we visited the cemetery in Orem where both my dad and Brian's dad are buried.
