June 07, 2011 Last day of school

Aerin took a trip to NY with her Mom to visit her sister and family; so G'ma Mary got to help watch the kids for the week.  The first day was Tori & Gavin's last day of school. So, Maddy & I went and had BBQ lunch with them.
 Soooo, happy it is the last day!

May 6-9, 2011 Christian & Allie's wedding/reception

Doug, Sean, & I drove down to Fresno for our nephews' sealing in the Fresno Temple and reception.  We had an awesome trip!  The weather was great and we loved getting some sunshine as we had been having rain here in Oregon forever!  It was so fun to be with the family down there and seeing friends too.  Our other nephew, Doug and his wife, Monica and their two kids also drove down from Klamath Falls.  It was a very fast whirlwind of things going on; but so glad we made the effort to be there.
