10 years...really? When I got back with the sisters it was like stepping back in time, everyone looked and acted the same but we all were carrying babies! It was so nice seeing most everyone that could attend (4 of my companions were at the reunion). Sisters made it from all around the world...Scotland, Switzerland, and Brazil. A special thanks to Mike for helping with the kids during the reunion while I mingled.
We also went to the zoo with some friends and of course we rode the merry-go-round.

Me, "sister Phillips" (companion) and "Sister Davis".
We stayed at Brian and Meghan's house in Orem, unfortunately they were gone at the time so we didn't get to see them. However we saw plenty of their cats, Mr. Bow Jangles and Parley. The girls absolutely loved them and I'm sure they were happy to see us go.
My dear friend Lizza. We spent most of the weekend with her family. We were never companions but did serve together in Texas and are life long friends. Sadly this is the only picture we got.
I stepped out of the room and came back to find Mazy like this. She will never be allowed to wear black lipstick, she looked so old. I think this picture could pass as a mug shot what do you think? Can you say TIME OUT?
We visited my home in Oregon for Mike's week long "summer break". We attempted to take some family pictures but Mazy and Evey wouldn't smile....not even when bribed with CANDY!
Here's what we ended up with.
My sister was able to join us from Texas with her girls and Will and Marissa came down as well.
Dad's motorhome at the lake during our cook out.
Evey and Marta are 3 weeks apart.
We cooked out at 4 mile lake. It was lots of fun to roast dinner over the fire and throw rocks in the lake.
Mike pushing the Oregon trail cart my mom's class made. He tired out before the girls did.
