WHAT A WEEKEND!

WEDNESDAY JULY 2ND STARTED OFF WITH EXCITING NEWS THAT GRANDMA & GRANDPA FORREY WERE HEADED TO IDAHO FOR THE 4TH OF JULY! THEY GOT HERE THURSDAY NIGHT AND WE GOT UP BRIGHT AND EARLY FOR THE PARADE. HERE IS ABBY KICKIN' BACK IN THE CAMP CHAIR LOVIN' EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
WE HEADED HOME AND SENT STEVE OFF TO WORK FOR THE AFTERNOON (BUMMER THAT HE HAD TO WORK FROM 12-4) WHEN HE GOT HOME WE LET HIM REST FOR A FEW MINUTES AND WE ALL HEADED OUT THE DOOR AND DOWN TO THE RIVER. THIS YEAR WE DID THINGS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY AND WENT THE THE FORMAL FREEDOM CELEBRATION AT THE SHILO INN. HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE CLAN. WE HAD A GREAT TIME...THANKS G&G FORREY!

THE NEXT AFTERNOON WE ALL (MINUS STEVE...HE HAD TO WORK SATURDAY TOO ) HEADED TO UTAH FOR THE BLESSING OF THE NEWEST MEMBER OF THE FORREY FAMILY...MAGGIE JADE FORREY! SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF JAKE & BETH. HERE IS PICTURE OF ALL OF US AFTER THE BLESSING.


ABBY HAD A GREAT TIME PLAYING WITH ALL OF THE COUSINS....ESPECIALLY MACI, HERE IS A CUTE SHOT OF THE TWO OF THEM.

AFTER THE BLESSING AND LUNCH WERE OVER, WE ALL HEADED TO WALK AROUND TEMPLE SQUARE. IT WAS A WONDERFUL TIME. ABBY FELL ASLEEP ON THE WAY THERE AND THANKFULLY THE VISITOR CENTER HAD A STROLLER TO LEND OUT.

AFTER SHE WOKE UP SHE WAS ACTING SILLY WITH THESE FACES! THANKS UNCLE JAKE FOR CATCHING THEM ON FILM. IT IS A FABULOUS PICTURE IF ONLY SHE HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE! SILLY ABBY! WE STAYED WITH AUNT SARAH IN PROVO AT HER CUTE..CUTE APARTMENT. THANKS FOR LETTING US STAY WE HAD A GREAT TIME!


ONCE WE GOT HOME, G & G FORREY THREW AN EARLY BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR ABBY'S 2ND BIRTHDAY. THEY LIVE FAR AWAY SO WON'T BE ABLE TO MAKE A TRIP BACK FOR THE ACTUAL BIRTHDAY. THEY GOT HER A TINY CAKE AND EVERYTHING. SHE LOVED IT. THEY ALSO GAVE HER A LEAP PAD THINGY TO HELP HER LEARN HER LETTERS AND NUMBERS BETTER. SHE CAN ACTUALLY COUNT TO 25 BUT DOESN'T ASSOCIATE THE #'S YET. THANKS GRANDMA & GRANDPA FOR ALL THAT YOU DO FOR US AND OUR LITTLE ABBY! WE HAD A SUPER FUN TIME DURING YOUR STAY.

The carpetlessness in the living room is still a work in progress. We tore up the carpet because of the hard wood floors underneath....they were in much better condition than we thought they would be. We have to replace a few parts but it won't be too bad.
