Shaun's brother's wedding

Shaun's brother, Boyd got married this morning at 11am.

I watched the twins for 2 and half hours in the nursery so Shaun and Amber could enjoy themselves at the wedding.

Victor did his 2nd Triathalon

Nancy and Victor came to stay with us last weekend. On Saturday he did his 2nd Triathalon in Rexburg. By the time I got off work, picked up Betty at my home, and got to Rexburg, he was finished.

Rexburg city had beautiful big petunia pots.

Then we headed for the cabin in Island Park. We had lunch at Lakeside.

The twins were born today!

William weighed 6 lb. 2 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long
Samuel weighed 6 lb. 3 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long

We got to hold the babies tonight at 9pm. They are very cute!

Empty Nest

It is so sad when your children leave home. The house becomes so quiet and boring. Katie moved to her apartment in Pocatello yesterday morning.

I miss her already.
It's not that I'm not busy, it's just that all of your kids always are a special part of you.
After sleeping yesterday, Mark and I went to the Summber Potluck Picnic at Sealander Park for the Alpine Club. Then Amber came over and we waited for Grandma Betty Van Sickle to arrive.

(P.S. These pictures aren't the greatest because they were taken with phones)

July 4th Week Vacation

I wanted to add some of my July 4th pictures, and discovered I'd never written anything about my week. I try to write something quickly and then I add pictures later when I have time.

I watched the Fireworks in Idaho Falls with Ben's family (Ben, Becky, Kara, and Kiersten) and with Victor and Nancy down by the river.

I watched Kiersten nap while the others walked around the river.

Ben's family came to visit me.

Bear World

I had a fun day off yesterday. Early in the morning I went to Bear World with Katie, Jill Gaumet from France, and two of her kids.

It was the first time Katie had been there. We had fun. Then I heard all about Katie's dance camp trip. She had a good trip. Then Katie and I went to lunch at Chili's with my post office co-worker Sandy. Then we had Amber and Shaun over for pizza and salad. Amber, Shaun, Katie and I played the game El Grande. I like that game. Amber won.
Amber tried a new way of cutting Mark's hair.

Then I had a short nap and headed back to working all night at the Post Office.
