So Bad

In case you haven't noticed I have not been blogging as of late. Time to start anew!
In July we had some visitors from Japan.  Yuki, her husband Toshi, and their daughter Rena come occasionally to visit my grandparents because Yuki was a foreign exchange student with them a long time ago.  This was the first time they had come to visit since both of my grandparents passed away.  It was hard not having my grandparents there but it was fun to have Yuki and her family stay with us!
We went to Salt Lake to visit Temple Square and the grave site.  We also shopped around the new City Creek Center and shared some caramel apples.  YUM.

Braiding Fools

Boredom took on a whole new meaning today.

Bri has a birthday. It is in July.  I thought it would be fun to fly to Mississippi to surprise her for her birthday. So I did.  And I took my darling mother with me.  Thanks to a certain airline we flew with we missed a flight and plans quickly changed from surprise to expected surprise.  It was kind of a bummer but we managed.  We flew into New Orleans late one night and soaked up some good ol' fashioned humidity.  Bleh.  Then we slept.  Then...we played for like 120 hours straight.  Then we came home.  While I was there I was on a nasty medication that was killing whatever joined my digestive system in Ghana (3 years ago).  I was kind of a party pooper and I am sorry. I didn't take very many pictures because I wasn't feeling well, but here are a few pics to prove that I actually chose to spend time in humidity:

Crab! Yikes!
