Manti pageant

The culminating event of the trip to California was watching the Manti Pageant. Annalee and Leeann drove over from Hinckley to watch with us. It didn't start until 9:30pm when it was dark. Isaac fell asleep 5 minutes before the show began and woke up with 10 minutes left having to use the restroom. Cosette fell asleep 15 minutes before the end (at about 11pm).

Katie and Paige Jacquez made the trip back to Pocatello with Emma. After the pageant they all drove to Provo to stay in a hotel. They got in at 1:30am. Fortunately the kids slept until after 8am.

In all the trip was a blast! Tons of friends were seen...Rauch's, Martin's, Hoskin's, Frank/Chaffin's and everyone made it back home safely.

Camping (part II)

Isaac made himself available for a few more pictures than the other two kids.

Flag ceremony - Mom and Larry burning the flag that used to fly at the house. They separated each of the stripes from the others and the field of blue was burned last. (June 14th was Flag Day)

Bryce Canyon (part II)

Cosette was sworn in as a Junior Ranger and received a badge to wear. She is very excited. Ethan found pine cones to be tasty while Paige was setting a speed record for swimming in the dirt.

Today is a bitter-sweet day. Vera Gudgeon Sewell passed away peacefully today at the age of 93. She is Emma's Great Grandmother (and the kids' Great-Great Grandmother). She is "grandma with the red hair" - her legacy lives on with Cosette. We love you Grandma and miss you already.

Sunset Point

Cosette is collecting trash to earn her Junior Ranger badge while the boys are hugging the was a blustery day. Guess they didn't want to blow away.
