Memorial Day

Despite only getting about three hours of sleep, I had a great Memorial Day. I had breakfast with some of the members of my singles ward, at which I was mocked for some silly things I had said at Ward Prayer the night before. (That's what I get for joking that I lust in my heart after men on motorcycles :) After the amusing breakfast, I returned home to shower and get ready to leave for Kaysville. I arrived early and so got to visit with Mom, Dad, Jordan, and Alison before I was sent to pick up Grandma Johnsen. Almost a half an hour later after I arrived, Grandma was ready to leave. We had a wonderful dinner made by Mom (and some grilled by Dad.) We had an even better time watching and playing with the kids. Wyatt took two steps, of which none of us got a really good picture. When we all started clapping he stood with his arms raised like a politician accepting our praise. Even though Lauren hadn't had a nap, she was in good spirits, especially after her Grandma gave her a flower. Isaac wanted to play croquet with the big kids. Tanner slept then woke up to visit and complain about his new shoes. All the kids were darling. Josh beat myself, Alison, Jordan, and Sidney in a game of croquet. (Sidney kept hitting my ball with hers :) Britnie, Dad, and the wind blew out the candles to celebrate birthdays. I didn't leave until about 8:30 so I missed Family Home Evening. It was ok though since I had some excellent quality family bonding time in Kaysville. Here are some of the pictures I took:

That picture of Lauren and Jen is so sweet. It was great to spend some quality time with the family.

When he raised his hands like a prize-fighter, I couldn't stop laughing. I think he knew he'd done something extraordinary, but didn't know what that great thing was.
