This week Hunter and Brinley have been doing swimming lessons. They have both done great, and I'm very proud of the progress they've made.

Scout Camp

This summer Jasen was fortunate enough to get to go to scout camp twice. The second time was with our current ward, and he had a great time. Cahl got to go up for the last few days like he usually does, which is always nice. Jasen did awesome this week, coming home with 7 new merit badges!

I think most people know that I have been wanting to get a little dog for quite some time now, but I have been waiting for a good opportunity. Well, today I found the right puppy. He is a 11 week old miniature pinscher that we named Rebel. So far he gets along great with everyone, including Mason. He is doing well on potty training too. He will make a great addition to our family, and everyone is excited to have him.

Black Canyon

This afternoon our friends who have a boat invited us to go up to Black Canyon reservoir. It was so much fun, the kids all had a blast out on the tube and with the giant beach ball.

San Diego ~ Day 6

We decided to spend our last day in San Diego at Balboa Park. I wish we had had more time to go to more of the museums there, but there are just too many to see in a day. We chose the Museum of Man, which is a pretty cool history/ anthropological one. We also saw the Instruments of Torture exhibit. After we had gone through the museums, we had lunch and just walked around the park until it was time to head to the airport. It was an awesome week, and I'm so thankful that I had the opportunity to go.

Our plane ride home was kind of interesting- the professional soccer team from Tijuana was on our flight. They were headed to Boise to play against a team from Spain for the Basque festival. When we landed at the airport, the fire fighters did a water salute, and there was a huge crowd of people waiting at the airport to see the players. It was a little crazy, since we had just spent the last few hours chatting with the players and their coaches, who were all really nice, and then having to walk through such a big crowd of screaming fans. It was pretty funny!
