to do, to do

This picture has nothing to do with what I have to say, but I thought it was a cute picture.
And what I have to say is:
Where has the Summer gone?
Seriously, the time has to slow down soon because I am not in the mood to put up the Christmas tree any time soon.
I had some yummy peas and potatoes for dinner. That took me back about 30 years.
I had a basement full of younsters today to sew skirts and other fun projects. 4 hours later, we had quite a fashion show. Fun times.
Looked up recipes for pickled beets. They should be ready to can soon.
Summer and Rick got their ham radio licenses in the mail last week.
Our truck has been in the shop 7 times in 8 weeks.
Sierra and Cole completed 2 weeks of swim lessons. They are both turning into fish.
Been to 7 Peaks one time. That pass has not been a bargain so far this summer.
And last but not least...We are heading out of town for a FAMILY REUNION.
I remember as a kid that friends would talk about family reunions and tell all sorts of tales about family get togethers and family traditions. They would wear silly t-shirts. And I was jealous. In 2001, we had a Robison family reunion in Annabella. All of my dad's siblings were there with some of their kids. I had flown in from Michigan just a few days before. We ate, played games, told stories and had a great time. That is the extent of my reunion experience. But that is all about to change. My mom, my brother, my sister, spouses, and kidlings are all headed to the beautiful location of Torrey, Utah and Capitol Reef for our first ever Kent & Nan Nell Robison Family Reunion. The preparations have been taking place for months. OK, maybe weeks. There are fun activities and surprises in store. I am seriously giddy right now. Maybe because I am exhausted from 4H sewing day or mowing the lawn and doing 30 batches of laundry. But still. I have packed the camera, so I will be sure to document this exciting weekend. I just hope the truck decides to cooperate and we make it down there in a timely manner. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I'm glad Sierra was able to make it for Activity Days and I hope she had fun.
Hope you guys are having a blast. We loved Capitol Reef, hopefully you do as well.

hey -- we want to go down and do that river hike (from girl's camp)again next week with my sister. Are you near there? What hotel are you staying in (she's got a baby)? Thanks again for helping my girls all freaking day with sewing!
