His Last Conference Address is well worth a look:  Why Marriage and Family Matter


Science/Society:

More California Trip Photos (Wordless Wednesday)

Some of my favorites.  Joey stayed with a friend while we were gone so he could go on a Scout high adventure and it was a bit weird to *only* have eight kids with us.  


I love what the California humidity did to Cami's curls.  They go fairly flat in our dry Utah climate unless I put in gel, but with nothing more than a bit of brushing, her hair was full of boingy curls all week.

We kicked off the summer with a fun, relaxing, and lovely trip to Newport Beach, California.  I missed a couple of days of photos and cleaning up from our trip and getting our summer routine in full swing has swamped me this week.  But it was certainly worth it.
