26th, 27th, and 28th of July pictures

Caren, me, Shawnie, and Kaye
July 28th
I love these amazing women, I have served with them 
in the YSA Stake Relief Society presidency for the past 3 1/2 years or so. 
Kaye was released today, along with her husband Bishop Davies.
We will miss her terribly, she was such an asset to our group, she kept us all in line and where we were supposed to be when we were supposed to be there.
 July 27th
a giant package of artwork arrived from France yesterday, 
and today it is on display in our home. Carter and Jude are the artists, with a surprise entry by Dennison. There were too many to put on our refrigerator all at once,
so watch for more to come in the future.

 July 26th
Since the Provo temple is closed for renovation for 6 weeks, we had a 'temple shift social'. I had to leave before everyone arrived, so this is just a small sampling of the wonderful women I get to serve with on Friday mornings in the temple. I love these ladies!

July 5 & 6 photo of the day

July 6
Dave and I visited the Pioneer Village in Provo today. I found out that this cabin, which I thought was built and used by my 5th great grandfather Gilbreth Haws, was actually built by his son Oliver. It was interesting to see how well and efficiently they used the limited space they had, it's about 16x20'.

July 5
 This was taken at La Jolla Grove restaurant in Provo where we had dinner with Laurie and Jerry. And we got to watch the preparation for a marriage proposal right outside the window, see the guy with the guitar and the ladies with the umbrellas had 2 buckets full of long stemmed roses.

Actually I planned to start on the 3rd, so there are 2 today ~ one from yesterday and one for today.
So, here goes! I plan on adding a picture a day, so come back to see what I come up with.
July 4th
 Today we had a flag raising at my mom and dad's house; here is the family group that gathered to celebrate the 4th. My brother Steve got a flag that had been flown over the Capitol building in Washington DC on dad's birthday this year.

 July 3rd
The contents of a package from France, a cute apron with a pocket and attached finger wiping towel, and a beautiful bracelet from Robin, Dennison and family. There was some delicious European chocolate too, but it's gone now.
