The Bosleys and Campbells got together for some delicious lasagne and brownies. Sorry I didn't get a picture of all who were there. It was quite a bunch. We had Jon and Rebecca Campbell and their two kids, Dureece and Brett and their two, Jon and Rebecca Bosley and their five, Mother and Mike and Me. Not all are pictured. This was taken after the crowd left. It was so fun to get together. Thanks J & R for hosting the whole group.

It was HOT! It was very sunny. It was a great day to sit in the shade and watch Jon's kids have fun on the fantastic park equipment. Notice Jessica hanging on this sliding bar. Great smile. Also see how tall Brent is. He's as tall as Rebecca. Matthew, Josh, Katie and Jon are all there but not pictured. In the background are the Wasatch Mountains, Provo and Provo Lake. What a beautiful place!
After a fun game of (oh, what is this called) Jon's kids with my encouragement were able to actually bend their bodies so that their toes reached their mouth. Well, I couldn't hope to do that nor I'm afraid would I want to. Lots of fun though.
We all had fun at the beach. The waves were especially high and we played across the street from the beach house. We wanted to have a hot dog roast the next day but all the local natives had reserved all the firepits, so where did we have our roast? At the beach house of course. We spread out our towels on the front patio, sat under the umbrella and barbequed our hot dogs and s'mores on the brand new BBQ. It was a fun day.

Ryan and family stayed some extra time and included a lot more activities. Above is our trip to the tidepools. So much good stuff to be found!
We had our traditional bounce house, and after the bouncing tired everyone, Jake read stories to the kids inside.

We also went to Rose Hills to visit Ted's grave after the new headstone had just been placed.

The Briggs and the Bosleys gather for a picture after the blessing. Missing are Jon's family, whose son Matthew was sick, so only Jon could come, and Andrew's family, being so far away. But we missed you! Afterwards we all came to the Bosleys for dinner and enjoyed Stacy's famous recipes.

My trip to North Carolina was so much fun! It's such a beautiful place and it was really fun to see those cute grandkids again. Nate is a great walker now--usually in the wrong direction, as he was pretty shy around me. He did warm up about the time I had to leave.

Ivy is NOT shy. She has a darling, sparkly smile which she flashes most of the time, especially when she has done something she might get in trouble for. It works every time!

Hyde still has those great eyes and is soooo cute. He LOVES the Wii. We can get him to do most any chore if the reward is to play the Wii or the "compuder."

Will shows such a warm, caring personality. He is old enough to show his intelligence and young enough to ask the darndest questions.
Hi from California! I'm not sure if I'm up to this new tech stuff, but why not. Thanks to Maren and Andrew I now have this blog. I hope I can publish a few things that will be of interest for you to look at periodically. What a challenge!
