Yesterday was "Redhead Appreciation Day" at the South Jordan Marble Slab Creamery. They were introducing their new Red Velvet flavor, so all redheads were promised free ice cream for coming in. The Red Velvet flavor, only. We met Mary, Emily, Jamie, Camilla & Carly for a taste. A "taste" is about all they got! The "free" ice cream was one scoop in a small sample cup! It was really good, just not very much...especially for the Lundberg's that had to drive up from Mapleton & ended up getting lost on the way! It was fun to see everyone & laugh about the small portions. Polly, who threw a mini-fit about getting red ice cream when she wanted pink, got lucky when Bruce wanted her red ice cream & Mary bought her some strawberry. Thanks Mary! I think most of us ended up with a red stain on our shirts, too :)
Here is the only picture I got with the redheads & their ice cream :) Happy Redheaded Appreciation Day, yesterday - and Happy Birthday today, Camilla!

FC Dallas vs. Real Salt Lake: Soccer fever. Great way to spend a nice summer's eve. Laura, Clark, and J.D. were the real Real fans, sporting team jerseys.
Our section was picked for some free RSL stuff and the younger crowd scored with some soccer balls. None looked better handling the ball than Nash.
As a anniversary gift to Nick and Adrienne, RSL decided that a home win would be a good thing. The happy couple was most appreciative.
With RSL in control, Ryan took a moment to school Chance and Max on the finer points of small ball control.
Additional family fun occurred when Lorie and I (Katie was relaxing at Lake Powell with the sisters) visited with Sam at Jackson Hole. She even humored us by following along for a hike to Phelps Lake.
Part of the family fun was watching, from a safe distance, three grizzly cubs frolicking a few miles below Jackson Lake Lodge. Mom was busy scratching her back on a nearby power pole. My camera lens wasn't up to the distance but you get the idea.
Finally, the view of Jenny Lake.
