We spent the weekend surrounded by pine trees, no internet, 70 degree weather and more family than most would ever choose to be with…and we enjoyed it!

We got home tonight and my laundry room is full, my fridge is empty and my kids are having cousin withdrawals paired with serious lack of sleep! It was the perfect summer kick-off.

We’ve got a full summer ahead of us. Family vacations, annual Idaho time, reunions, mission farewells, a mission homecoming, a wedding, not to mention the pool is open and ready for swimmers – we’re booked! I’ll be hit or miss with writing and posting. We’ll see when I can fit it in or when I can schedule it in advance. But we’ve got kids and summer to enjoy and that is a full-time gig. Hello summer.
