Calls Family Drive-in

One of our favorite places to go and eat in the summer time is a little drive-in called Calls Family drive-in and it is up in Perry. They are only open in the summer and they have the best food, root-beer floats, and shakes. We surprised the kids and took them there friday night.

Brandon and Makell's wedding

We were lucky enough to be invited to Brandon and Makell's sealing at the Bountiful Temple on thursday. We took our kids and they sat outside with Josh and all the other kids during the sealing. The temple president of the Bountiful temple performed the ceremony and he did an amazing job. We are so happy for Brandon and Makell. Our kids were excited to be there and to see them afterward, outside the temple. While they were getting pictures, we left and went down to Dicks Market in bountiful and bought a dozen of their famous sugar cookies and drinks. We also went to Brats kids in bountiful and bought Cambree a really pretty baptism dress. It was a very fun day!

Bountiful Temple with Makell

Saturday, Christy and I were invited to go to the Bountiful temple and go through with Makell for her first time and be with her while she took out her endowment. We were so happy to be able to be there and spend the day with Chad, Jen, Makell, Brandon, and their families. We are so proud of Makell and love her so much! After the temple, we were also invited to a big lunch with everyone down at El Matador. It was a very fun day! Looking forward to seing Brandon and Makell get sealed on Thursday!

Our little fisherman

Carter went fishing today with his Grandpa Roger up to echo reservoir and was excited to come home and show us his three fish that he caught. I guess Roger didn't catch any and Carter caught three nice sized trout, so he was pretty excited.

Archery World Cup 2012

Ogden hosted the Archery World Cup Semi-finals again this year. This time they were out at the Weber County fairgrounds. I was lucky enough to meet a lot of them and be able to talk to them. I was excited when I found out that there was a mens and womens team from Romania. It was fun to be able to speak Romanian to them. They were really surprised to hear me speaking Romania to them. On one of the days of competition, team USA and team Romania shared a tent and were side by side. It was fun to watch them and cheer them both on. We got a lot of strange looks from people whenever we would cheer for Romania. It was a fun week and really neat to be able to meet so many different people. Surprisingly, the team from Iraq were some of the most friendly people out there. It was a neat experience. Hopefully we get to host the Archery world cup again some day.

Webelos Overnighter at Camp Fife

This weekend was our Webelos overnighter up at Camp Fife. I am lucky enough to be Carter's Webelos leader along with my friend and neighbor Bryce.  We have five boys right now in Webelos and we have a lot of fun together. We got to Camp Fife friday afternoon and set up camp. Carter was excited to share a tent with Taylor and Jaxon. I shared a tent with Bryce and Scott Brown. Friday night was full of activities including dinner, a camp fire program and then at 10:00 pm we all met for Astronomy. Saturday morning we were up early, cooked breakfast and then had a full day of classes and activities. Our boys all participated in each activity except for the rock wall.We had one scout that refused to try it. I was proud of Carter though. He climbed to the top of the wall several times. I am even prouder of him for doing the Zip line. He was pretty scared to do it, but he did it and loved it!  I love Carter so much and I am glad that I was able to be with him at camp. It was an experience we will never forget!
