Entering the Blog World

Ok, we caved!!! We have entered the blogging world! I'm not sure I know what I'm doing, but here goes!

We have just returned from our family vacation to Utah. We were there from July 11-26, and we had a great time. For the first week, we stayed with my (Sue's) parents, and the next week with Brian's parents. We were there for Sue's mother's 81st birthday party at Red Lobster. We got to have dinner at Marilyn and Dennis' home with Diane and Reed, and Richard and Denise. That lasagne was fabulous! We worked in the garden for my Dad, and went swimming. We drove to Provo to see Nick and Carissa's new beautiful baby girl, and then to lunch at Fudrucker's. YUM! Brian and I went to Migun Massage a few times which felt fabulous!!!

We then had a wonderful two day family reunion with Brian's family. We had a potluck dinner and talent show the first day. The second day we spent at the Farley cabin up Lamb's canyon. Then we all met at the Jordan River Temple for dinner and a session. This was the first time to have the entire family together at the temple. It was the highlight of our reunion!

The next day, July 20th, we celebrated Daniel's 7th birthday!!! Wow! He is so excited to finally be 7!

We were able to have a tour of the church's Humanitarian Center which was amazing! We then drove around the valley with Mom and Dad Anderson looking at the construction of the two new temples in the valley. We spent an afternoon with Ramona and Paul and their family and enjoyed pizza and games. We also slept overnight at the cabin which was so beautiful!!! We love it up there! We celebrated Pioneer Day up at the cabin with Sue's family with Mom and Dad, Carolyn, Steve and Terri and their family. That night we went to the Salt Lake Bees baseball game with Ken and Cheri and their family. We enjoyed a great dinner at the ball park, watched the entire game which we won, and then saw the fireworks at the end! What fun!!!

We loved seeing all our family and spending time together in Utah! It was very sad to leave and come home to California. But as always, there's no place like home, and it did feel good to sleep in our own beds again!!!

You did great, Sue! It was fun to read about your trip to Utah and it was especially fun to have you over for dinner and to spend some time with you.

Dennis, Marilyn and Family

fun to keep up with your family adventures. You'll love blogging - the more tricks you learn the funner (is that a word?) it gets. It's very similar to the satisfaction you get from scrapbooking, but blogging includes only the basics - pictures and journaling. Enjoy!
