Blake and Cody received their Eagle this past weekend and the whole family came down for the party. My mom successfully has 4 Eagle Scouts now and I am a little worried about the future expectations people will hold over my head.
We had a great time being all together at home...which hasn't happened since....still thinking....
Anyway we lived it up and regretted it on our drive home because we were thinking of all we had pushed aside.
We went to Fiesta Fun and played some mini golf. The boys challenged each other and I am proud to say Gary won!

Gary turned the ripe old age of 24. We were figuring out that all his brothers either had a child or were expecting at the age of 24...that made Gary feel even older. However, as my Dad states... "Gary might be getting older but you can tell he is still a kid at heart." Which is so true hence his birthday present featured below.
Our apartment is small and 24 candles made it look as if I had done some serious burnt cooking. Gary blew all of the candles out in one breath... his lung capacity is just getting better with age.
Lastly, he did receive his BLUE scooter he's been telling me he wants since we met. I always told him no because I've got some anxiety about anything that relates to a motorcycle. However, he signed his life to me and agreed to all my rules. He must wear a helmet everywhere regardless if it is down the street. He's done a really good job! (probably cause he doesn't want to lose it) And no riding it in bad weather...period. The bad weather hasn't happened yet so we haven't had a problem with that rule yet. Anyway, it has actually been a great thing because we only have one car and our schedules are busy. So Happy Birthday Gary and let the fall semester keep on going great!

The reception was held in Jenny's backyard in Washington. The Macdonald family lives right outside of Portland but on the Washington's side. It was absolutly beautiful. Her mom picked up the talent of growing flowers this summer and then had a friend cut and arrange of all of them. So as you can see on the cake there was fresh flowers everywhere, and they were the perfect colors Jenny wanted.
Here is our Christmas card the photographer said for this year so if you don't get one don't be offended and consider this the card...because we probably/will not be doing one. I might pick up that tradition when there is more than two of us but as for now...no.
The weather was beautiful for Washington but COLD, hence all the jackets on the girls. We were freezing! We were good sports though and endured it until the end.
Even until the very end to wave them goodbye to their hoonymoon to the Dominican Republic. I was jealous, I asked Gary if we could have a second hoonymoon. This 3 day weekend we had been looking forward to all summer because this was our only "vacation". We had to be adults this summer and work and go to school. However, Gary promised a better summer next year. My head is already spinning with IDEAS, okay- like one idea DISNEY...the castle might as well be my timeshare.
Anyway, It was a great mini vaca and we are so Happy for Kyle and Jenny. We are even more happy that we can communicate with just stomping on our floor to get their attention. (They live below us) It's going to be a great semester :)

My Dad's "baby girls"
I don't think my brother's can take a normal picture without doing a GQ pose after.
My mother paid for all of us girls to get gel toes. I absolutely love them and would have it done more often if other things weren't more expensive like school books(I could vent about that for a good 30min).
-actually wedding to come:)

On our way back to Provo from St. George after the 4th of July weekend I noticed the beautiful purple fields right next to the freeway. They had a huge sign for the Lavender 5k coming up July 11 so I talked Gary into running the race. It didn't take much convincing because he wanted to run a few 5k's before football started, so we drovo to Mona at 6am on a Saturday morning.
Gary did really well for not running seriously since high school and I was shocked to see him up front....so shocked that this is only the picture I got of him running because I wasn't ready when I finally noticed it was him.
Lastly, I asked Gary if I could take a "Congrats You Didn't Die" photo and this is what he came up with. He couldn't just do the thumbs up like everyone else, he has to be different. As for me, I enjoyed the beautiful flowers and scenery and was very content on not running the race. We (and I'll just put words into Gary's mouth) had a great time! ;)

working with the BYU football team at the end of July and that's when I become a half widow. Before that time comes will spend many days together (i.e. work at the same office) and drink a lot of soda. Then we will part for five months and then by Christmas time we will be reunited. I am probably being over dramatic about this football commitment but I am trying to prepare myself for the worst. However, my sweet brother and sister-in-law will be living right below us come August so I'll have some mourning buddies to hang out with. Furthermore, we have two more months of pure fun and I am super excited about our event less summer because we can do anything!

The whole day we joked about how we were leaving to Italy at night. In some way were...we stayed a night at the Anniversary Inn in Salt Lake in the Gondolla Room. Yes, the bed is a boat. The room was really unique and even had a waterfall shower(I don't remember waterfalls in Venice but it made for a nice extra). We watched The Notebook and the Celtics-we are romantics.
We are no longer newlyweds.

This is Jenny; my awesome new sister-in-law to be!
Lindsey and I threw her a bridal shower party and the game didn't go so well for Jenny via the picture. At least Kyle and Jenny have until Aug 15th to get to know each other a little better. But to Jenny's sake-Kyle wasn't himself when he answered those questions.
My great mother provided the tasty food-Subway- and it was delicious. I made cupcakes the morning before and placed fake Diamond Rings on top of them so each girl could fit in with Jenny's big rock on her finger.
