First there is the Fourth of July! We went boating with some friends! It was a blast. It doesn't seem like we get together as often as we used to but when we do we are guaranteed a good time! Thanks Seth & Kristin for letting us come with you and use your awesome boat! That night we went out to a members house in our ward who puts on their own firework show. This is the fourth year we went and we have never been disappointed.

Then of course is our Anniversary on July 19th, which is also Nick's dad's Birthday! We were able to go to Billings, MT for 2 nights. On Friday night we went to a baseball game. It was Billings Mustangs against Orem Owls.

Saturday We were able to go do a session at the temple. For the past three years now we have been able to go to the temple on or around our anniversary!

That night we went to HuHot for our anniversary dinner. It is a all you can eat Mongolian grill. It was really good!

July 24th our stake did a dinner and had pioneer kid games. It was fun. Afterword we went to the county fair, to say that we've been. Nothing too exciting. There was a rodeo that I wanted to go to but tickets were extremely expensive for the level of rodeo that it was.

On July 30th, my parents & my lil brother, Ben, came up to visit for the weekend. They haven't been up in the summer and wanted to do the things that are closed in October, when they usually come up. On the 30th we were able to see the last part of the baseball game, after we got some good Papa Murphy's pizza!

On Friday the 31st, I had to work unfortunately, but my family was able to go up to Glacier NP. They even got to see a big horn sheep. I was so jealous. That night was relay for life. I signed up for the 9-10 time slot. My family met me there and walked with me. Nick joined us after he was done at work and walked with us. We walked till about 10:30pm. I think all together we walked a total of 33 laps, that's just for 5 people!

Saturday we went to Gates of the Mountain! That's one thing my mom really wanted to do. It was fun & warm. We even got a little sunburned! Afterward we went to lunch at L & D's Chinese buffet. Nick met us there. It was delicious. That night the fam helped me do Nick's b-day shopping & then we headed of to the baseball game! It was a good game except that we lost.

On Sunday we didn't do a whole lot. Went to church. Ben was able to reunite with a senior missionary he knew from his mission. They live in my ward how crazy is that? We had Bro. Martin over for dinner. It was good to get to know him a little better and to hear their mission stories. That night we went for a drive & then played games! What would a Sunday be without games?

Monday the fun had to come to an end, after Ben, Nick & Bro. Martin hiked Mount Helena!

So there you have it! The happenings of July!
