As long as I can remember, Cahl has been making origami with the boys at church. Well, now that they don't need help anymore, he's teaching Brinley! She was so proud of the crane she made!

Tonight we went down to watch the races at the Meridian Speedway. 2 other families were there with us, and it was fun to hang out and watch the cars. The night's big winner was #92- a GIRL, and Brinley loved that her car was pink!

Day Camp

Today was Hunter's last day camp as a cub scout. A friend and I volunteered to run a station, and since the theme was "Sky's the Limit" this year, we spent the day teaching about 200 boys how to build paper airplanes. I am now a pro at 3 different styles! It was a fun day, and I'm glad I got to go with Hunter.

Tristan has been looking for a job for the last few months and has applied at a dozen places, and he finally got one! He saw an ad for Freddy's Frozen Custard last Thursday so he applied, and within a few hours they had called him to set up an interview for the next day. So he went to his interview and they hired him right there! He started his orientation this afternoon, and he'll be getting started with his training soon.

Tonight we decided to hike Tablerock as a family. Cahl and the older boys have all done it a few times, but the rest of us haven't. It is a fairly steep hike about a mile or mile and a half each way, but the view is awesome! And we stopped for Frosty's on the way home, so that made it worth it!

Cherry Festival

This afternoon we headed over to Emmett for the Cherry Festival. My parents met us at the park, and the kids had fun riding rides and watching the parade before we went to dinner and back to my parents' to hang out for a bit. It was nice to spend the evening with them.

Date Night

Tonight Tristan had his first "real" date, and he's probably going to kill me for posting about it but since he doesn't read my blog, I don't even care! He took his friend Emilee out to dinner and a movie at the Village for her 16th birthday. They've been good friends since we moved here 4 1/2 years ago, and they had a great time!
