Thanks to the editors

This is a special shout out of thanks to the editors of the Emmett family Newsletter. What a delightful thing. I stayed up too late last night reading the just arrived edition from cover to cover. I learned lots of new things about people I love. Thanks to all who contributed and shared.

McKinley @ Tueller Review

Sometimes I'm a bit slow but get around to things eventually. McKinley did a wonderful job this year at the Tueller Review. She practice very hard and did a few more dances this year, plus she worked on her smile while dancing too.

Happy Birthday Bruce!

Q: How do you know you're the 2nd child?

A: When your mom doesn't do a Happy Birthday Blog Post first thing in the morning on your birthday.
Whoops - dropped the ball on that one :)

Happy Birthday Bruce!

Our day started early with a trip to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House around 9. Fun Fact: We went to the Draper Temple Open House on Polly's birthday. PURE coincidence. Bruce's birthday was the only day it worked out with everyones work schedule (Molly & Lorin) to be able to all go together. It was a great experience to go to the temple, so fun to be able to see 3 temples from our neighborhood (if you were standing on our roof or the new road behind our house) & Polly was even more excited about seeing the temple lit up at night than she was about any fireworks.

Bruce's first (of 4) birthday cakes. He looks like he's saying "I'm one!" Blue frosting was Polly's choice.

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday Dear Bruce, Happy Birthday to you! Thanks for the party & dinner Grandma & Grandpa!

I bought this Nemo & Turtle over a year ago for Polly & never gave them to her - they have just been sitting in the closet until I decided to use them as Bruce's birthday present. They were a hit :)

Happy Birthday Bruce. We love you!

Shout out to my mom & Erin - it was so fun to have them here all week & do as much a we could with the time they were in Utah. Joseph (Ben & Courtney came up to go with Molly & Erin while we went to The Fray) , Music Man, Harry Potter with Ben & Courtney (Thanks for watching the kids Lundbergs), The Work & The Glory, Yes Man, playing at the park, watching Sesame Street Karaoke with the kids, going to the temple, playing at the Splash Pad, eating at Red Robin, shopping for new board shorts, going boating, driving aimlessly around Provo (with Erin) going to the "favorite Disney Store" for Polly & staying for probably close to an hour while she went crazy looking at week! We miss you & hope we get to see you before Christmas! (Take a vote everyone...not seeing them until Christmas is way to long, right?) We are looking forward to seeing my Dad in September!

Summertime chillin' with The Fray

Does it get any better than a warm summer's eve at the Usana amphitheater, sitting on some Norda tied quilts, while listening to the sounds of Jack's Mannequin and The Fray? Well, actually yes, according to Grandma and Grandpa, but as for the rest of us, it was a fun time.

The entire gang between shows. JD's comments to the crowd watching our photo shoot had us all laughing.

Katie and Mac's nerves are indeed "frayed" with anticipation.

Okay now, let's all sing along . . . "How to save a life . . . "

For the record, I was officially the oldest person attending the concert and Lorie recognized not one but TWO of the songs performed. Thank you.
