Summer Time Means Family Time

I just love summer because that means I get to see my family. Last week Mitch and Amanda came from Arizona to support Brittney in receiving her endowment from the Bountiful Temple. That was really special for Jarin and me because that is "our temple". This was our first time doing an endowment session there together. We actually went back last year on our 10th anniversary to do some sealings. I just love that temple. It brings back some nostalgic feelings.

Mitch, Amanda, and their cute little kids stayed with us for the weekend, which was an ablsolute blast for my kids. Amanda and kids are still here in Utah, but went up north to help with wedding plans. Thayne and Jennifer and their little family will be coming this weekend. My kids can't wait to see their other cousins as well. Kamrie keeps asking if it is Saturday yet and how many days are left until then.

We have a busy week ahead of us. Brittney will be getting sealed to her soon to be husband, Shawn, on Friday. We will be heading up to the Tremonton area and staying the night on Thursday and Friday to get ready for the wedding and reception. On Saturday, we will be celebrating Courtney's birthday (and Kerrie's in my heart) while we are there. That night we will travel home to be with Jennifer and Thayne and to get ready for church the next day, which is bright and early--8:30 AM.

The following week we will be with family from both sides to celebrate the 4th of July and Taylor and Thayne's birthdays, to help Shad and Kati move to their new house in Payson, and just to hang out with everyone while they are visiting from Arizona. Hopefully we can plan some fun activities while everyone is here. We're looking forward to lots of fun over the next two weeks!

I'm so jealous. I love being in Provo with lots of family for the 4th of July. I wish we could be there...maybe next year.

I miss going up there on the 4th but look forward to seeing everyone the end of this month in CA. Sounds like your summer is going to fly by Hollie. It usually does go too fast. With Jarin's large family and yours too there is always something going on. Thats fun. I sure miss you guys. Love ya Mom

Jennifer said...

Yeah- we are so excited to come up! My children are counting the days. I'm not excited about that church time, although it's later than ours. Wish mom and Kerrie were coming too, but at least we'll see you in a month! We'll do all the usuals for you.
