Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of Jade in her blessing dress but I did get some pictures of her.
This is how it'll be whenever I have baby #2 although Kylie will be MUCH bigger by then. Oh and just for bragging rights - I made both of the babies hairbows. While I was home I taught Deena and Melanie how to make them and I think we're all addicted to making them now.
It was a lot of fun to get dressed up and make a couple of hairbows (one for Jade and one for Kylie). We ended up going across the street from the Mt Timanogos Temple and it ended up being the perfect place. I love how green the background turned out. My parents with all their grandkids - they couldn't love these kids more!
- If you stretched out all the roads in the open pit mine, you'd have 500 miles of roadway - enough to reach from Salt Lake City to Denver.
- The trucks that haul the ore are larger than many houses and weigh more than a jumbo jet. They stand over 23 feet tall and can carry from 255 to 360 tons of rock.
- The truck driver rides about 18 feet above the ground -- nearly two stories high.
- The mine is so big, it can be seen by the space shuttle astronauts as they pass over the United States.

The last day for the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House was August 1st so my parents got tickets so Kylie and I could go. She was an angel through the whole thing but she did find that the Celestial Room had a bit of an echo when she would babble. It was very cute.

On July 7th we drove down to Newton, KS to have dinner with Avery's old flight instructor at Hesston College. After the dinner we decided to head up to the college and walk around his old stomping ground. It was fun to see where he had gone to college and see the places where he lived, ate, and played ball for two years. They don't do summer classes there so it was literally like talking a walk through a park. Thanks Avery for showing me Hesston College!Avery, Kylie and me on campus
