Last Week

I finished my 6th book of the year - The Rent Collector by Camron Wright. It is a novel (based on actual people) who live in a waste dump in Cambodia. But it is much more than just the story of daily survival in the dump; it is the story of hope, understanding, and redemption. (That sounds weird, but if you read it, you'll know what I mean!) I actually enjoyed it more than I thought I would. And I gained a lot from talking about it with my book club after I finished reading it.

We discovered that we can make snow cones using my Blendtec. All you have to do is put in some ice and press Ice Crush. We got a bunch of flavors of snow cone syrup from Macey's and have been enjoying our homemade snow cones!

Another week, another visit to Seven Peaks...

Corbyn was absolutely fearless in the kiddy area as soon as he discovered he can go down the slides all by himself now.

We went to Springville's Art City Days Balloon Festival Friday morning. The weather wasn't ideal for balloons to take off, so they only blew two balloons up and they didn't take off. But we had a good time with Grandma, Grandpa, Mariah, Charlotte, Kelli, Alleah, and Elsie.

Peyton thought she was hot stuff driving around our neighbor's car. Not too long after this picture was taken, she fell out of the back. Luckily she didn't hit her head and was just fine. 

Our young women had girl's camp, so we went up Friday night for Bishopric night. I was supposed to make rolls to bring, but messed them up and ended up having Rog pick up a bag of rolls from Costco instead.

We got to celebrate our favorite daddy on Father's Day. We filled a basket with his favorite treats and an iTrip. (Printables here.) 

Bill and Mariah had us over for Waffle Love style waffles for breakfast. For dinner I made him French Dip SandwichesStuffed Potatoes, and Malt Shoppe Memories Ice Cream Cake. I think it's safe to say his Father's Day was about a thousand times better than my Mother's Day!

Glad we got to be a part of some of your week's activities.

Love the Father's Day gift basket for Rog!

Father's Day dinner was amazingly delicious :)
