Happy Day! Finally it is over 90 degrees. We had our first official swim day, although the kids have been swimming in the cold water. The pool is 86 degrees and absolutely perfect. Rachel, Miles and Sean came over. And little Addie came to visit. I love hot weather and think I will retire to St. George. I just finished a great book called These is my words.

P.S. Kyle is waiting for you Josh and Jacob. Please hurry!

Where have I been?

Legacy for the Laurels in our Stake. It is an overnight training camp for the 16 year girls. It was the first time I had been to Legacy. It was wonderful and the food was outstanding. They fed us every two hours. Why does food taste better if you don't have to make it or clean it up? It was great for me to get to know the girls better.

Also, I just got back from girls camp. It went very well, I think. I could have definitely done some things differently, but for the most part we had a great time. My girls are amazing. I have learned to love them so much. It was also fun to be there with Shelby. Poor girl, I didn't get to spend much time with her.

Now I need some suggestions for some great summer books. I am the worst at going to the library and picking a book. Somehow, I always get smut or murder books. I don't want those. I have given up picking books by myself and always have to have a suggestion from someone. I just got through reading the Hunger Games and really enjoyed it. If anyone out there has any great suggestions, I would appreciate it!!

Random pictures of My Saturday

Our new pet Chinchilla, Very soft and sweet

Our poor lonely pool waiting patiently for visitors. It really needs to stop raining.( I think I complain about the weather too much, which I wouldn't do if it would just be warm and sunny! Really, is that asking too much?)
Three cute girls with the chickens plucked from the backyard.
A beautiful black walnut tree with a climbing rosebush that climbed right up it's branches.
