When Josh was called to the Idaho Pocatello Mission, I told him I knew people all over that mission, and that they could keep an eye on him. LOL!! One of the people, is my brother Todd and his family. They live in Boise, but Sunde is from Rexburg. They travel there often, and only this past Friday where they able to catch up with Josh and take him to lunch. He was excited to see his Uncle Todd and Aunt Sunde, and cousins Brynn, Camryn, Luke and Max. They went to Roadhouse on the 20th.
Then a few days later, our former bishop & his wife, Brother & Sister Bowman, made their way up to Idaho Falls to visit their son, Ricky and wife Heather, and grandson Kyle. Of course, Sister Bowman had to call me and brag, but that's okay. I am glad they got to see him, and take him to lunch too.
On 15 August was our Stake Conference in Shreveport. We made arrangements with Josh's girlfriend, Amanda, to meet us there. It was fun to see her after a year, and to have lunch with her in one of the rooms at the stake center. Yes, we eat lunch at the stake center because it's 100 miles away, and it's either eat there, or go out to eat (Jacob can't go that long without food, thus the reason why we eat). Afterwards we went over to where Shawn works and saw him for a few minutes before heading home.
A cute picture of Lauren, age 15. Not sure who took the picture. But I thought it was cute.
