On our last night in Canada we had a "weenie roast," I know funny name, but that is what they call it there. We roasted Hot Dogs and Smore's and had a little baby shower for Katie who is having her third boy at the end of September. I made a quilt for her. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, this was a real patchwork that I made using scraps of fabric I already had. She really liked it.
As my Dad would say, "A lovely time was had by all." We really had such a good time, it was hard to return home to the 110 degree weather. We spent a week after Canada in Utah playing with cousins on my side and Travis'. Somehow I didn't manage to take any photos after the Canada part. We went to lunch and church one Sunday with my Mom and Dad at the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Provo. My Dad is in one of the District presidencies there and we were lucky enough to go inside and see how it all works. There is such a wonderful spirit there. I was glad my kids got to go in and see all the Missionaries preparing to serve. I hope it is a memory that sticks with them. I had been in a few times before in college when I got to work in the phone center for a religion class. With all the family events I never even got to see friends there, sorry, but I have a feeling we'll be up there again soon. I guess we have to get back to reality now, school starts in a couple weeks, and we have our house up for sale. That is never fun, but a good excuse to keep my house organized. Wish me luck!
