JUNE HAPPENINGS

JUNE STARTED OUT WITH BLITZ WEEK AT THE EXTENSION OFFICE. IT WAS JUNE 8-12, A WEEK LONG SEWING AND COOKING DAY CAMPS FOR ABOUT 75 4H KIDS. THEY MADE QUICK BREADS, HURRY UP MEALS, ZIPPERED HOODIES AND PJ PANTS. ON FRIDAY, JUNE 12, WE HAD A FASHION SHOW FOR THE THE KIDS THAT HAD MADE A SEWING PROJECT THEY WANTED TO MODEL. THEY WERE SO CUTE AND THEIR PROJECTS TURNED OUT SO NICE.


JUNE 16, MY BOSS, DEANNA AND I WENT TO THE CANNERY TO CAN 108 #10 CANS OF AIR. WE MADE TIN CAN STOVES @ 4H CAMP. I HAD NEVER BEEN TO THE CANNERY AND IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. IT WENT SO QUICKLY AND WE WERE IN & OUT IN NO TIME. WE WILL DEFINATELY BE BACK FOR SOME CANNING FUN.

JUNE 17-19 WAS 4H CAMP IN ALPINE, WY. WE WENT WITH BANNOCK (POCATELLO) COUNTY. WE HAD ABOUT 92 KIDS & 20 ADULTS. I HAVEN'T BEEN TO 4H CAMP SINCE I WAS A TEENAGER AND I WAS SO EXCITED TO GET TO GO BACK. IT LOOKED THE SAME. REALLY NOTHING HAD CHANGED.

ON THURSDAY, WE SPENT MOST OF THE DAY IN WORKSHOPS. WE HAD TIN FOIL COOKING, TIN CANS STOVES, RIFLE & ARCHERY, AND A HIKE WITH ICE CREAM. I HELPED WITH TIN FOIL COOKING. IT WAS A LOT HARDER THAN I THOUGHT. THEY DIDN'T TURN OUT VERY WELL, THEY WERE BURNT ON ONE SIDE AND RAW ON THE OTHER. BUT THE KIDS LIKED THEM AND DIDN'T COMPLAIN.

THAT NIGHT WE HAD A DANCE. WE JUST GOT AN AMAZING SOUND SYSTEM AT WORK AND DEANNA & I WERE THE BEST DJ'S EVER. THE KIDS HAD A BLAST AND ONLY A FEW OF MY SONG THEY DIDN'T LIKE. AFTER ALL THOSE HOURS, I WAS ABLE TO TAKE MOST OF LAST WEEK OFF. I ♥ MY JOB!!!!

ON MONDAY, JUNE 22, MY SISTER LISA CAME TO IDAHO FALLS TO PICK CHENA & I UP FOR AN ADVENTURE (LITTLE DID WE KNOW WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN). WE WERE DROPPING OFF SOME LIFE JACKETS AND OARS FOR MY PARENTS & OTHER TO USE AT CEDAR BADGE. WE WERE SUPPOSE TO MEET ANOTHER COUPLE IN ALPINE, WY TO DROP OFF THE STUFF. WE GOT TO ALPINE ABOUT 8 PM. AFTER 3 1/2 HRS OF DRIVING AROUND LOOKING FOR THEM AND MAKING A TON OF PHONE CALLS, WE LEARED THEY WERE NOT STAYING IN ALPINE THAT NIGHT. FRUSTRATED & UPSET, WE LEFT THEM AT THE PARENTS TRUCK. THEY HAD HIKED UP TO LOWER PALISADES LAKE AND LEFT THE TRUCK IN THE PARKING LOT. AFTER WE DROPPED THEM OFF @ 11:30 PM, WE WENT BACK TO SODA SPRINGS FOR THE NIGHT. CHENA WAS GOING TO STAY WITH LISA FOR THE WEEK WHILE BRAD & I WERE IN SLC.

ON TUESDAY, JUNE 23, BRAD & I LEFT FOR SLC. BRAD HAD WORK TRAINING FOR A FEW DAYS. TUESDAY AFTERNOON, WE WENT TO SPANISH OAKS GOLF COURSE TO DO A LITTLE GOLFING. I'M THE BEST GOLF CART DRIVER EVER. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN TO DRIVE BRAD AROUND. HERE ARE FEW PICTURES.

AFTER WE WENT GOLFING, WE STOPPED BY GRANDPA BRADFORD'S HOUSE TO PICK UP ON ORGAN HE GOT FOR BRAD. IT IS BALDWIN FUN MACHINE. HE HAS ALREADY STARTED TO PLAY IT.

ON WEDNESDAY, WE WENT TO THE THE OQUIRRH MOUNTAIN TEMPLE WITH DAVE & MIQUELYN. THEY LIVE RIGHT BY THE TEMPLE. THERE IS SUCH A WONDERFUL FEELING INSIDE THE TEMPLES. I ♥ GOING THERE. I FORGOT MY CAMERA, SO I COPIED THIS PICTURE FROM LDS.ORG

Oquirrh Mountain Utah

ON THURSDAY, WE WENT BACK TO SODA SPRINGS TO PICK UP CHENA. BRAD LOVES A NEW ADVENTURE SO WE TOOK THE SCENIC ROUTE HOME. WE STOPPED IN LOGAN FOR DINNER @ CENTER STREET GRILL. I ♥ THAT PLACE! THEY HAVE THE BEST WRAPS EVER! THEN WE DROVE THROUGH LOGAN CANYON AND THROUGH BEAR LAKE. IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL THAT DAY/NIGHT. WE STOPPED IN GARDEN CITY FOR THOSE FAMOUS RASPBERRY SHAKES. THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!!
