The girls like going for rides on their Electric Dirt Bike. I was riding with Mckenna the other day and she kept looking down so I told her to "watch where she was going and look up". She took me quite literal and would look WAY up when giving it gas. She is Cracks me up.
I have a calling to clean the church. Usually we do it for a month, every 3 months.
They recently changed it to 3 months in a row, then off for 6 months. Should be interesting since we clean the church twice a week so that means roughly 26 cleanings in a row. It will be nice to have 6 months off after that though.
The girls and Brit usually come and help when they can. Usually they are all great helpers.
Heading to the Dumpster. Garbage Pale Kids
We recently took the girls bowling for the first time. There is a Bowling Alley here in Lehi we took them too. It was a good time and although none of us scored any record highs, we all had a good time.
Avery yelling "go ball go, go ball go"
Mckenna was determined to pick up and carry the ball herself. We only had one instance of a smashed finger.
We had a reunion this year on the Trujillo side of my family. It was
held at my Cousin Kathys house in Ferron, Utah. Ferron is in central
Utah about 40 mins south of Price. We dad and a bunch of the family grew up
in that area. We don't see that side of my family a whole lot so it was
good to get out and see them. The majority of the family in attendance were sons and
daughters of my Aunt Naomi and Uncle George (dads brother) that have both passed away but used to live in East
My dad is the last surviving Trujillo of my grandparents.
had, I believe 11 siblings so it's pretty impressive/sad that he is the
He is turning 70 this year too so that's awesome! He is in
great health and I see him living a long time to come.
I wish I knew
more about that side of my family. My grandparents died before I was
born so unfortunately I didn't get the chance to get to know them.
reunion was on Saturday so we left our house around 8:30. We drove
through Spanish Fork Canyon, had a few pits stops and arrived right
They live in a great area with a lot of land and
Mtns surrounding their property. As a kid I remember climbing, hiking, exploring around
their place and loving it. I enjoy doing activities with my kids now
that I did once as a kid.
We had lunch, mingled, and caught up.
My cousin Kirk got out a huge slip n slide which was a big hit with the
kids. We also hiked around a little, took some photos and went to a
nearby reservoir to fish with my dad. It was a great time.
Been wanting to take the girls fishing for a while now and finally decided to just pull the trigger or it wouldn't happen. We got some supplies and walked to the Jordan River by our house. I wasn't expecting to catch anything as we were only planning on being there for 30 minutes or so to get back to the house for dinner.
A worm on the hook and 3 casts later we caught a catfish. It was big and ugly and the girls didn't want anything to do with it. I think it was about the weight max for Averys little fishing pole.
Here's to much more time spent outdoors.
