Hi Everyone!
It's been a long time again. We have had a busy, busy, summer. We had a great family reunion. 23 of us slept in our house!! Byron & I went out into the trailer, and let everyone have run of the house. We went to a WATER PARK, BIG SLIDE JUMP THING, ROLLER SKATING & PLAY LAND place all in one. We had such a great time. My favorite thing was the family picture that Karolyn took for us. We were all here, which was my favorite thing! Families are so important. We went to Hertiage Park for one day, had a pinic in American Fork Canyon, the kids hiked to Timp. We stayed down with the 2 "TWO" YEAR olds. Xoey and Peyton, had a ball playing dolls together. We went to the Temple Open House. Another Great Fun thing was the "Family Olympics". I'm so thankful we all had fun together, and got along together. Colton won the Hulu Hoop Contest. Way to go Colton. We played Volley-Ball, had relay races, Water Ballon Hot Potatoe Games, Bubble Gum Blowing and Climbing the Polls in front of the building!
Today was the Dediciation of the Orquariah (sp) Mountain Temple. We took Thiago with us. It was a great experience.
Byron and I have been moved from our Ward to the Mingo Branch. It's taking me longer to adjust than Byron. I'm sure it will be a good experience.

Great News Leesa and Matt are leaving on Sept. 1st to go get "Jenna" from China!!!! I will be going to stay with the kids while they are gone! Looking forward to welcoming our 14th Grandchild. That will be 7 boys, and 7 girls!

Shane and Viviane and family are inbetween moves from Florida to Houston and staying with us for a few months.. It's been fun having the kids here again with us. Viviane went for a job interview in Houston, and Shane went to work last week in Houston, so we took the kids to Fairview Fishing. Thiago caught the biggest fish. I love Fairview!
Well, I'm off to scrapbook for a few minutes. See you in a few.........

Hi Everyone,
I am at Shara's house in Idaho Falls, she is giving a crash course in blogging. We came up for Easter Week-end, and little Xoey's 2nd Birthday. She is so cute, (see the following pictures). She verbally doesn't say much, but she sure lets you know what she wants! She knows everything you tell her, and she does what you ask her to do. She is still a sweet cuddely baby girl. Well I need to change computers with Shara, so I can add pictures and tell you about the past few weeks

We went for a walk with Sharon and Bob, on the Jordan River Parkway. I had to find a little bush on the way! Pictures of our quick trip to Idaho Falls and Rexburg to see Shara and Bryans new home (maybe?). We had a fun time with Grandma and Grandpa Thompson. It's great to have family only 250 miles away! Some of my pictures are dark, and I haven't fixed them for this. Just learning. We had 7 inches of snow in the valley today! Been working on Scrapebooks. It's very nice.

Fall Leaves at Silver Lake

Where does the time go??? If anyone know let me know! I have been going to finish my Europe pictures this past week, but seems like too busy. My dad, Dallas N. Stradley, has not been well. We have had the opportunity to help take care of him. We also have been busy going to Dr's and dentist offices. Dad Thompson, has had surgery on his eyes and not been able to drive, so we have gone with them. We took a ride with them up Big Cottonwood Canyon, it was last Thurdsay after the 1st little snowfall over Conference Weekend. The day we went the sky was blue, the leaves were so pretty, and we had fun with Mom and Dad Thompson.
