"Blessings only come to those who notice." DOVE-bite
#1 Happy BIRTHDAY, EMILY!!!
We love you and are glad that you are a part of our family. I appreciate all you do.
#2 We had a friend come spend the week with us. I (We) love Mitch. He is a very sweet boy. Although he can not speak, we can feel his spirit and testimony. We are happy his family shares him with us.
#3 We love (love, love) the Labour Day canyon family breakfast. I don't think anyone knows how long we have been doing this.
Many many years ago, we went up to the canyons for dinner (and the cave). It was hard to get a spot, and we would get home late - and dirty. With the new school year the next day. (We did dutch oven dinners, tin foil dinners, BBQ dinners...)
So, (probably sometime around when Michael and Kate built the pool) we decided to meet for breakfast (and have dinner and swim party and dive contest in the evening).
We put a menu together and I have a master list of assignments. Grandma and Grandpa get to the canyons early and pay for 2 spots. One for cooking and one for visiting. We fill them both.
Everyone brings food and all kids bring flashlights. (It's o.k. if you forget. Grandpa brings extras :)
Hilary brings the box of names and cousins draw to see who they will give a Christmas gift to.
Grandpa takes the group down to the (very small) cave, and then on a hike.
