Finally, Spring Is Here. The blooms in front of our home are so beautiful right now. It has been nonstop rain here for a long time, so it's lovely to feel the warmth of the sun.
Life has been very busy at our home for the last couple
of months so here is an update for April and May.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints holds a semi-annual General Conference each year in April. We took a moment to go to Idaho Falls to spend some quality time with our family there. Our daughter and family from Spokane came down for this weekend,
so we were able to have some moments with two of our families.
We enjoyed many fun moments with them all. We watched all of
Conference sessions on TV ate, played games, and just enjoyed one another.
Some of the kids had a great time at the hotel swimming pool.
We went out to dinner one evening, which was nice.
|Our Grandson, Christian, came for a brief visit the following week|
. It's is the best when Grandchildren visit.
We had fun taking our three grandchildren; Alyssa, Emma, and
Ben with us to a fun movie. These three have been living with us but are moving soon.
This photo of the two of us was taken on Mother's Day~
Next was our Stake Relief Society Service Activity. Our Presidency worked on putting this all together for the last few months. Our Theme was Sisters, Just Serve. Our Service projects were taken from the site; "Just Serve.org." We had a lovely program to start the day off. Our featured speaker was Bonnie Harris. She is a local Vocalist and has a rich alto voice. She sang three numbers and then talked about serving one another and ministering as the Savior would have us do. Our beloved Stake President Tim McCoy also spoke.
It was a lovely program.
Afterward, all the sisters met in the cultural hall and other rooms throughout the building to do 70 Refugee Kits for all ages, Quilting, Fleece Blankets, and other small projects. Lunch was also provided. It was a great day, and we had around 180 Sisters come and complete these projects. Here are the photos of this spectacular event.
We attended our Grandson, Joshua's Soccer Game. It's fun to watch him play.
He's a great goalie and also does well on the field.
On The 22nd of May, we attended our Grandson, Jonathan's High School Graduation.
We are so proud of him. He is a straight-A student with some great goals ahead. We went out to lunch first with his parents and then on to graduation.
It was fun to be with most of the family.
While we were in Heber, we stopped by to see our Daughter in law, Jessica who just had surgery. Here she is with our three Great Granddaughter's Jadyn, Lilly, and Myah.
It was extras special to spend some moments with them.
We attended the Birthday party for some good friends that we made while on our mission. Aaron turned 15 years old, and we loved watching a group of them try to hit the Pinata.
On Memorial Day we went to Bountiful to visit my dear in-laws' graves.
It was a beautiful day to honor them. I was a little sad that I couldn't get down to visit my Parents and brother's graves too.
Next was two High School Graduations on May 29th, for two of our Grandchildren, Ethan from Sugar City, and Taylor Jo from Idaho Falls.
Both graduations were at the same time, so we had to split for the exact moment.
We spent some time on Tuesday night with our family in Sugar City.
We went out to eat, and the food was yummy.
Here are some photos of our Grandson, Ethan's graduation.
My husband went to this one. He said it was really an excellent program.
On Wednesday, we went to lunch with our Granddaughter, Taylor Jo, her parents and her boyfriend, Ethan. Christian in the lower photo was working and couldn't join us.
Here is our beautiful, Taylor Jo. I attended her graduation, and it was an extra fun one.
She was Magna Cum Laude.
Finally, our precious Granddaughter, Haven, graduated from Pre-school. She is our youngest Granddaughter. Love this sweet one so much!
As you can see, we had a very busy month of other beautiful moments with various activities. I'm looking forward to some quiet times. We do have one more granddaughter, Sarah's graduation this next month.
We are excited to spend some time with her family in Washington.
