Crazy Mail!

So this is Robyn. Mom said that the only way I was allowed to get the pictures off her camera was if I put them up on the blog, so here we go!

I got a banana in the mail! My friend Tyler Mertz, who is currently in the MTC, heard somewhere that the post office would mail a banana as long as there is a stamp and an address. So he tried. I got such a surprise today that is for sure.

Independence Day

I love the 4th of July!  I love that I live in America!  I don't want to be anywhere else.
We had a great day.  Church was wonderful.  It was good to feel gratitude for ALL our blessing including the opportunities we have living in this great nation.  I feel blessed in too many ways to count.

After church we had some friends over to the house.  It was too cold to hold the BBQ outside so we stayed in. John grilled the meat of course.  After we ate enough to last all week we sat down and played a marathon game of Catan.  It lasted from dinner until dark.  As we were putting the game away we realized how dark it had gotten.  We almost missed the neighborhood show!

This photo was fun.  I can't believe how perfect it came out.

The Kids

This was the cake I made to celebrate the holiday. It looks pretty non-decript but then...


Happy Independence Day!  Thank you to everyone who made and are making sacrifices to make and keep us free.
