Lots and lots of family events!
May: Went to Georgia for my Dad's baptism. It was a ver
y amazing day but unfortunately I was unable to capture any moments on Camera, so...just imagine. :)
June: very emotional and stressful month for the family. My Mom had her big critical surgery for her cancer. They removed 60% of her liver, and luckily the surge
ry was very successful. They got all of the cancer that was visible, and she healed much faster than any of us were expecting. Our whole family was in town to support her, and I don't think she would have healed so quickly had we all not been there. It was stresseful, and emotional, but we are all so grateful that it turned out for the better and she is now on her downward slope to remission!
July: Family back in town! Dustin's parents were in town the entire week before
my my sister's wedding, along with all of my family. It was great to see everyone. We had a really good time with Dustin's parents. We drove the Alpine loop, went to the 4th of July parade right down the road, and attended the Freedom Festival. It was our first time spending the 4th in Utah, so we definitely made the best of it! Then, we enjoyed Ashley's wedding on the 10th. It was a very beautiful wedding and we are so happy for her and Ryan!
unfortunately most of my pics are from July, not much before then. Here are some pics dustin's mom took of us and a few other random shots for the month--
Upcoming August plans--we are planning to go to Mesa for two we
eks come August first. We were lucky enough to be able to do this with
the ability to work at home...from anywhere that has a phone line and internet! SO, we are able to work, as if we were working from home...just in Mesa! And of course still enjoy the afternoons and evenings with the fam--and still get paid for it! So, it may not be vacation time much--but at least we get a break from Provo for a few weeks. We are definitely excited and look forward to this weekend! :)
