We were blessed to have lots of visits from our family in July.
My daughter Megan and husband Eddie brought along his radio controlled flying wing and helicopter.
It was a little too windy for great flying, but Eddie was a master pilot with the helicopter.
It got me all excited about building a flying wing (from Dollar Tree foam board!), which I have started.
Just waiting for motor, batteries and electric parts to come in from China.
We had a couple of sleep overs with Pam’s son Shane and family, over the 4th of July.
We totally missed the hot air balloons at this year’s Freedom Festival in Provo on July 4th.
The windy weather made it impossible to launch.
My daughter Morgan and children, spent the whole summer in Utah
and we got to enjoy the grandkids, with a sleep over!
Morgan’s oldest, Henry, was baptized on July 6th by his father Chris, in a friends swimming pool in Salt Lake City.
Charlie and Kate wanted nothing to do with family picture taking.

Jay stayed with us for a week in the middle of the month.
Chickens are now full grown and doing great. So fun to watch and listen to.
We got our 1st egg on July 14th. We weren’t expecting eggs for another month.
We are getting a half dozen brown eggs a day! Almost more than we can eat !
Garden is growing by leaps and bounds.
Tomato plants almost 6 feet tall !
Apple tree had so much fruit that the braches were touching the ground this year.
Also got a dozen peaches on a 2 year old tree.
I shared a picture last quarter of the onions going to seed.
This one is a close up of the onion seeds.
Pam’s daughter Leisha, and family arrived on the 2nd from Arizona.
Kennedy stayed with us for about a month, before moving into this dorm.
We celebrated our city’s ‘Orchard Days’ parade on the 3rd.
Grandkids ~ Addison, Jackson (Bubbers) and Kameryn watching the parade.
Pam with the grandkids
You will notice Kameryn on the right has shorter hair. She donated her locks to children with cancer.
We did a bunch of garage sales with Kennedy and I stole this guitar for $3.00 !!!
The lady said she forgot to bring the amp, and I asked how much? She said $2.00.
We made arrangements to pick it up later that day.

Garden sunflowers . . .
. . . and a days harvest of veggies. Yeah, lots of tomatoes !!!
My daughter Megan told us about “Dapper Days” at Disneyland on the 6th,
with special pricing for the Grand Californian Hotel. So we booked it and shared a room.
We left Utah on Tuesday the 3rd and stayed overnight in Las Vegas.
We arrived at Disneyland on Wednesday and purchased our annual passes.
We stayed at the Grand Californian Hotel Friday night.
Hotel is gorgeous !
Hotel’s main entrance doors.
Our room and bathroom.
The weather in Anaheim was unbelievably hot all week, with high humidity.
We ended up going to the Enchanted Tiki Room twice, just to cool off.
We also got soaked on the Grizzly Rapids, twice!!!

What is that girl behind us doing?
. . . . and California Adventure.
Big fire and panic on Thursday night . . .
. . . just kidding, . . . . it was the ‘World of Color’ show.
I entered these photographs below, on the 28th in the Utah County Photography and Digital Art Show,
and then we headed over the Provo Airport.
Utah Valley University’s aviation program was celebrating 25 years with a fly-in at the Provo Airport.
Free catering (breakfast and lunch) was done by the school’s Culinary students.
Summer this year in Utah was blazing HOT . . .
The month of July was the hottest ever on record.
We had 17 days of 100° or more.
Closing this 3rd quarter blog with our beautiful front yard mums.
If we had know last year when we planted these, that they would get this big, we would have planted more !
Happy Halloween, Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas !!!
