I am sorry to say that the past week has been very full for me, and the kids, but I only have pictures of me and Vera Lyn and we have done a couple of things without kids (which was nice in its own way.)
Last weekend was my 20th high School reunion in Long Beach, CA. Knowing a number of my good friends were going to be there I decided to go down and took Vera Lyn with me. We toured Hollywood Saturday morning. Hung out with old LDS high school buddies and swim team buddies Saturday afternoon and then went to the reunion Saturday night. It was great to reconnect with everyone.
Sunday we went to a mentor and friend’s home coming, Craig and Lonna Ward, returning from Panama as mission president. It was great to see even more old friends and acquaintances there. We had a great family dinner at my Dad and Pam’s Sunday night with Deanna and Danielle’s families and then went and walked along the beach (oh how I miss the beach.)
Then this past week, Wed through Saturday, we went to WY, the Jackson area, and camping with Vera Lyn’s siblings and parents. It was a ton of fun, totally disconnected, hanging out, fishing, motorbike riding all in a most beautiful setting. Thanks to all who helped watch and take care of the two sets of kids.
Mixed in between all that has been work, a Stake softball tournament, including me running the young men’s portion. Cam got to participate in his first Young Men’s sports event playing softball with the Briarwood Ward team. Cam is also doing band camp right now, learning percussion, mainly the snare drum and bell kit (xylophone).
