It was a Wednesday or Thursday evening, and grandma called. She asked if Karl could come and help grandpa move hay for the horses. Karl LOVES manual labor so he jumped at the opportunity to flex his muscles. Grandma mentioned that Nate and Branny were coming too and I said, “I can help too grandma.” She said I could go as a cheerleader if I wanted to. Which totally ticked me off for two reasons: One, just because I am a girl doesn’t mean I can’t do this kind of work and Two: I know I am at least stronger than Nate! (love ya cousin!)
The day came and Branny, Karl, Nate, and I met up with Grandpa at the mouth of Provo Canyon and headed off with a trailor full of hay to the place were the horses are kept.
Branny was the only one who had been before, so Grandpa put him in charge; calling him the foerman. Barnny had little intrest in this role, but did his best to get everything set up the way grandpa liked it.
We started…there were 105 bails and we were 6 young adults. (Brian and his friend…Craig I think, met us out there.)
Karl personally unloaded 2/3 of the entire trailor before he took a break. He was so awesome!
DINNER AT SPAGETTI FACTORY
A few days later, we were all together again. In lieu of our first sunday dinner, grandma decided to get all the cousins together. Every one was there.
Heather, Janson, and Mike were there. I haven’t seen Jason for YEARS, and he looked really good. We finally me Mike! Grandma love him and is always gushing about how great these two are. We unfortunatly didn’t get to talk very much, but by all accounts grandma was spot on.
It was at this point that my camera batteries died. Jared and Diana were there, and they both, again looked really good. Randy and Dannette were there. I spent most of the evening talking to them. I had never met Dannette either. She had spent some time at Ricks, and so of couse we mostly talked about my beloved Rexburg. It was great. Grandma and Grandpa sat at the head of the table, seeming to just enjoy watching thier family interact with eachother.
It was a great evening!
