May, June, July and August - A Glimpse at the Past

I'm sure this review would have been easier to write if I'd done each month as soon as they were finished, but it still shouldn't be too hard. I probably wouldn't even bother trying to catch up but Framed said she wasn't going to post about her cruise to Canada until I did. Since I haven't heard a single word about her trip and I'm dying to, I accepted the blackmail.

So Framed . . . Please post something about your trip!

1 - Started another blog called An Eater's Journal.

2-7 - Aly came to town for a weekend visit. She had some car troubles and was stranded here a few more days. I was kind of glad about it.

5 - Jen and Kate crashed while 4-wheeling. Luckily no one was badly hurt.

12 - Katie's 19th birthday. My how time has flown. Nineteen years ago our little surprise bundle was delivered and she's brought us joy ever since.

24-26 - Susan and Julie came from Cedar City and Mark from SLC and Cassie from SLC. We all gathered at Mom's for Memorial Day breakfast.

Well, since neither Framed nor Katie wrote anything that happened to me in their June recaps, there's nothing I can steal. And I certainly don't remember anything happening!

1-3,5 - Katie performed in the Outlaw Trail production of Annie. She was great! So personable and she sings wonderfully.

4 - our annual 4th of July b-b-q and celebrations were great. At least I enjoyed them.

5 - Alyson came home and went to Annie with Grandma Rae, Cassie Jo, Candleman and I.

13 - Candleman turns 58! He must of robbed the cradle because his darling wife isn't anywhere near that old.

14-17 - Candleman and Steve drove Mom & I to Duchesne where we met up with Mark who drove us to Cedar City. Candleman & Steve drove off into the sunset and were not heard from again until very late that night.
Mom, Mark and Susan Kay went to a couple of Shakespeare plays. We enjoyed a couple of meals with Julie and Cassie and a couple with all the relatives from northern Utah. It was a great few days.

26 - Katie moves to Layton to room with Alyson.

1,2 - Petersen Family Reunion in Vernal

22-24 - Aly & Katie home for a visit.

Sounds like a nice summer! Glad I could participate in some of your months! I always enjoy spending time with you. :)

Gee, I've never had a bribe taken so readily before. It's good to know I'm not the most gullible member of the family. And I'm glad you wrote this post before checking my blog. I thought if I waited for you to do another post, I would forget everything that happened on the trip. As it was, I couldn't remember what days certain things happened. I'm waiting for Cassie and Julie to correct me.

I really need to do an update. Maybe your update will inspire me, but I will probably not have time anyway. I'm glad I was able to come out and spend some of the summer at home with you. :)
