The weather has been really nice these past few days, not going higher than 87 degrees. Its been beautiful. I took the kids swimming at the small country pool. Not very many people there but the kids had fun!




I decided I wanted to learn how to play tennis. We have a park with 2 tennis courts a few houses down from us, so thinking that would be a fun way to get some exercise in and time with Andrew as well. Andrew was so patient with me... we played for about 45 minutes, then let the kids take turns for another 15 or 20 minutes... I think I like it! I have never played tennis before...I'm looking forward to practicing and getting better at it! I don't think I will ever beat Andrew though, with his experience....




Well... We had stake conference this past weekend, and our stake is no more. We had 2 general authorities come to our stake, and speak to us. There were 4 stakes involved... Corona Stake, which used to be our residence stake, Jurupa Stake, Riverside Stake and Riverside West (ours).


Anyway, there were 2 small, struggling stakes, (Jurupa Stake and Riverside) and one huge stake...(Corona) Sooo... The general authorities decided to dissolve our stake and give some of our wards to Riverside and Jurupa... and take some wards from Corona stake and give to Jurupa. So a lot of changes including some ward boundaries. We also found out that our residence hearing ward got moved to another building...and some changes to the boundaries. We had a busy Fathers Day weekend, going to all kinds of meetings about the changes... Andrew and I went to a special meeting given by our new stake presidency.. (Pres. Bishop was released! Boo- hoo!) we all knew that would possibly happen) the new Stake pres. was talking to the bishoprics and their wives from the different wards in preparation for all the changes that will be made. Hopefully it will all go smoothly...




We're looking forward to going to Utah for our first family vacation in a year since before we moved here. Yes we went up to Santa Rosa, but that wasnt a vacation!haha.. so hopefully we'll be able to do fun stuff while we're in Utah. I think we'll leave at 4 in the morning, on Sat. I already have plans to get together with some of my girlfriends on saturday. We're going to the Deaf Ward on Sunday, then heading out to SLC to meet Andrew's Grandma and aunts, uncles, etc. We'll probably stay at a friend's house for one night.. in Lehi and go back to SLC and tour SLC, temple square and all. We hope to go to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point, and at some point go to 7 peaks water park, then we'll be going camping with Allen's family the remainder of our vacation. Hope we can find time to do everything we want to do. I will be sure to bring a camera this time!! Smile!

I'm glad that Elisa and Rachel are joining the blogger world..welcome!
Here's a pic that Emma snapped of herself saying "I really love you" so sharing her sentiments! Love ya all!
