Emerald Ridge Prom

Caleb went to the Prom for Emerald Ridge. It's called the Senior Ball. It was up at the EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum at the Seattle Science Center. Talitha was their chauffeur and drove them in her new car. We think they had a good time. Here's a picture of Caleb and his date.

Caleb and his date and also went to the Mormon Prom here locally in Puyallup. Caleb looked quite handsome.

Here's a shot of the side of our house, which we have been finishing off and finally got it done. It used to be just gravel and dirt and a place to put junk. Now it looks pretty nice. Jacquelyn figured out the design and how she wanted it to look and we hired Brother Garlick to do most of the work, although we did a lot too ourselves. He brought in a bull dozer and now it slopes away from the house so water doesn't collect against the house and it has excellent drainage. I like it.

We went up to Spokane for the weekend. We got to see Dallen ordained as a Deacon in the Aaronic Priesthood. He just turned twelve. Here's Dallen looking really sharp in his new suit.

We also got to take part in a family birthday party for Dallen. We had a lot of fun but Dallen got hurt on the trampoline Sunday evening and is walking around on crutches now for a while.

It was great to visit with Tianna and Jim and their family. We even got to see Jarom while we were there. He is home from college for the summer from Notre Dame. And we got to visit with other grandchildren in the family - Amery, James, Ashton, and Evan. Over the weekend some of us did a lot of different things like playing card games, playing tennis twice, going to the Spokane Temple, going out to dinner at Mazalan, watching several episodes of Walker, playing video games, going on some walks and one hike, jumping on the trampoline, eating carmel toast, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows outside over a firepit, and going to church on Sunday.

It was a lot of fun and we had a great time, except for the time when Dallen got hurt. Hope he gets well soon.
