My adorable niece, Branda, got married to the love of her life, Eric, on August 5th. We weren't able to go up the day of the wedding but she did an awesome brunch the day after and it was so fun. I loved the brunch idea. She served cinnamon rolls and fruit and it was so cute. So happy for them!
Charla's husband, Tom, passed away on August 8th. So heartbreaking for her and the kids. They are not 100% sure what happened, but hopefully he is at peace. His services turned out great, the kids each spoke and did a wonderful job. We will miss him very much.
The weekend of the 19th through 21st, we had a fun last minute camping trip to Yankee Meadow. I love that place. The Jensen's, Orton's and Hilleger's were all able to join us for either all or part of the weekend. We went for a fun ride Sunday on the way home from Parowan to Brian Head. So beautiful!
A few other happenings this month: The weekend after we went hiking at Angel's Landing, Chantry was called out on a search. On the way back from the search our friend, Mike Hilleger, had a mild heart attack. It was pretty scary. Life flight helicopter came and got him. Chantry and Gary helped him down. So young to have a heart attack. He seems to be doing lots better now.
Chantry's dad was sick and they had thought he had a heart attack as well but turns out he was just really sick. He was in the St. George Hospital for a few days and then released to go home- then he got dehydrated and had to spend a few days in ICU at Cedar Hospital. He is home again and doing ok. Fingers crossed we can just keep everyone healthy.
For Young Women's we got to go see the new temple being built. The temple missionaries told us more about the building process, very interesting. It is going to be beautiful and I love the idea of having a temple right in our home town.
Celina moved in with us for a few months. She is going to SUU and planning to go on her mission in January, so saving some money and living with us for a bit. We are loving having her here.
That is our fun crazy month of August! As much as I love fall, I am not ready to welcome Fall or Winter yet- but ready or not, here it comes.
