June 2016

Busy busy busy month!!  I literally didn’t have one day all month without something on my calendar.

The first weekend in June was my mom's retirement party at the store.  It is bittersweet to see my mom retire.  That store is all I have known.  She started it when I was about 4 and I grew up there.  I would walk there every day after school in elementary.  I was taught at a very young age to work in customer service, cut fabric, sew, tie quilts, clean and do whatever else was needed.  It is good for my mom though.  I cannot wait to see what her next chapters hold.  I hope a lot of time with friends and family.

The second weekend we went to Coral Pink with the Waters family.  It was so much fun! We went riding, ate yummy food, got stuck in an awesome rainstorm that soaked us.  Great weekend!

The kids are just like their father- washing their toys :)
The weekend of the 17th through the 19th was super busy but super fun.  We rented the old courthouse in Junction for my mom's 70th birthday and retirement party.  It was so much fun!!!  The cousins had so much fun together.  We played racquetball, played cards, visited by the fire, ate tons of yummy food, we had a talent show, my mother shared her amazing talent of quilting and gave us all a quilt, the kids loved doing I spy throughout the house, water fight (which we missed cause we ran back to Wyatt's wedding).  The boy cousins slept in tents and the girl cousins shared the bunk room that was in a vault.  The place was borderline creepy and awesome at the same time.  Memories we will never forget and I could tell it meant the world to my mom.  We had asked  her months prior what she wanted for her birthday and she said just to have all of the kids together- and we all were- except for Alan and his family.


We did leave Saturday for Wyatt and Kylee's wedding.  It was beautiful and amazing and they are such a cute couple.  Sure do love them.  Randilyn was lucky enough to be the flower girl, however, she got to the crowd of people and freaked out.  She started crying and I had to walk her the rest of the way.  She looked darling though, so that is all that matters right ;)

In April, I mentioned the unfortunate news of Aunt Sally being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  The cancer took her so quickly.  During our weekend in Junction, we got the bad news.  Marcia stopped to see the old courthouse and headed to Mt. Pleasant to see her, she made it just in time to see her.  Breaks my heart.  She will be missed so much.
The following weekend, they had her funeral in Antimony.  It was short and sweet, just as she would have wanted.

The kids had dentist appointments and we lucked out this time- cavity free.  Channer does have to go back and get a filling fixed though.

The boys went to grandmas for the week.  Missing them like crazy :( :(  I had an appointment in St George and since I didn’t have the boys, I decided to grab Charlee and Canyon and we went to the Children's museum while we were in St George.  Randi LOVED it.  We also picked up Chy and it was so fun catching up with her.  Such a cute little place- we will be back- with the boys- soon.

Busy June- ready for July- but that means summer is going way too fast!
