After visiting with Ann, Jeff and family and Genny, Dan and kids we spent the next day hanging out with Sara and her kids, then on Friday we stopped by for a short visit with Amy Leonard and her kids. Her kids are so adorable. Mya and Ian had played soccer together...about 7 years ago. Our visit wasn't long enough and when we left Taylin commented that her boys played "gentle", which she liked. They are in a new place that has an incredible view and yard, total kid heaven. Only wish we would have been able to say hello to her husband. Next time. The kids loved snacking on her watermelon, white bread and nutella! It's good to see old friends be able to share stories and catch up. The next day we convinced Scott to meet us at Ikea for dinner and a fast walk through. The cousins loved it, Scott tolerated it.
Cafeteria style dinner.
On Sunday we headed to our old Sumner ward for church. We had fun hugging and catching up with old friends. The speakers did a good job and I appreciated their comments regarding raising yourn families and how we should use soft voices, and show love. Plus, it was fun to not be in primary for a change of pace. After church we headed over to visit with John and Melanie Payne. We ate homemade ice cream and strawberries.
The kids rode "Montana", and "Roma"
It's so fun to walk outside the front door onto a porch and see your children jumping on the trampoline and reading on the front porch swing, such an ideal place to grow and live. Again wish we could have visited longer and heard more stories of their adventures. They made our fatherless, father's day pretty memorable. Can't wait to pick up Gavin from the airport on Monday! After leaving the farm, we headed back to Sara's to finish making twice baked potatoes for Grant Erickson's father day dinner. We had fun visiting with Grant and Eileen and hearing about their trip to Nicaragua, they had just returned from a week visit with their with their son Micheal and his family. They loved it there and thought it was incredibly beautiful. We also got to see Jon and Tracey and their family. Their daughter Lydia and Mya hit it off! Peter and two of his boys stopped in and they are doing basketball very well, Jon says Peter's son Peter Daniel has a real shot at the NBA in his future.
