Trip to Idaho Falls and Salt Lake/Provo
Joanne and I trundled to Idaho Falls/Rigby for the Bradley K. Hammon annual 4th of July breakfast--and "happy birthday to Brad Hammon" day. We had a great time being with family. Anna Rose and Christiaan came up for the breakfast. We dropped Mother Boltz off at Joanne's Aunt Esther's place in Idaho Falls so she could spend some time with her.
We also went to other annual event: the Delaina Hammon Scholes Annual Easter Egg Hunt. What? An Easter egg hunt in July? Yes, Delaina couldn't have it at Easter because of a huge snow storm; so, she waited until we all were there for Easter. What a kick it was to see all of the cousins, nieces, and nephews--big and small--running around Delaina and Keith's yard, scooping up eggs and such. What a fun time we all had! Once we were finished we drove over to Brad's house. We then drove over to Abbott's Hardware where I bought a new pellet gun to take home. Cannot wait to fire this one.
We left around 5:30 ish to drive to Provo. After picking up Mother Boltz, we headed south to the great land of Provo where we spent the night. We woke up the next day and had breakfast with Hailey and Joseph. After just a few short hours, we had lunch with Joseph's parents and siblings--two sisters and a brother--from Seattle. What a nice family! We enjoyed ourselves with them and chatted about Joseph and Hailey. We shall see how this all goes down, eh?
