camera+lake=broken camera

Well, last week I went to Bear Lake with my mom. It was really fun, and Jonah did really great camping for the first time. The traveling, not so much. I really wasn't surprised, he really hates the car. Unfortunatly, my camera was dropped into the lake when the lens was open. I hurried and took it apart as best I could and got it dry, but it has a whole lotta sand in every tiny crevasse. Anyway, I'm going to try to take it to a camera place and see if they can clean it and save it, but I have a sad feeling it's gone.

I always feel like I have to have pictures to post anything, and I know I don't, but it really does make these posts so much more interesting.

I just got back from Jerry's family reunion up at Mutual Dell and had so much fun! Besides all the great company, there was a zip line, bouncy blow up slide, we had a water balloon launcher (very fun to hit people who were in line for the slide) and this human rubber band game thing that was hilarious!! I've said it before and I'll say it again. Jerry and his family are just good people. I am so lucky to be part of such a wonderful family. However, being around his brothers made me really miss Jerry. Each one has at least one similar trait of Jerry, and all around me was reminders of him. It's a lot easier to be away from someone when you just don't think about them and try to fill your time and thoughts with other things.

I have been so lucky. His family has been taking such good care of me and Jonah. They have been mowing my lawn, babysitting, just dropping by to visit, hooking up waterlines, fixing waterlines, rerouting waterlines. My family has been great too; babysitting and visiting.

One more thing. I am so sick of being so stinkin hot. I am excited for fall.
