We attended a piano recital on August 27 for 4 of our grandchildren. They all did a wonderful job. Here they are posing at the piano afterwards. Rachel, Dallin, Emma, and Taylor. Taylor is especially happy that the recital is over, don't you think!
We celebrated Mesa's birthday on Sunday the 24th, because she was not able to come on the 17th when we celebrated all the other August birthdays. She turned 10 on the 27th. Rick & Donna's family came to join in the fun.

Mesia celebrated on the 1st with Grandpa McMurray, but the next day we had her and Spencer here for Sunday dinner, and we celebrated again! Here she is showing us that she is now 2!
Spencer is a very handsome young man of 14, and will be ordained a teacher in a couple of weeks. We are proud of you, Spencer.
The cousins that were there to help Alexa celebrate her birthday. Mallory, Cannon, Mesia, baby sister, Alexa, and Allie

Our Abby with Mesia and Eliza
Eliza with Cannon....he did not feel very good that night...getting over some virus, I think. He had been in the Emergency Room on Thursday night!
Jan with son Will and daughter Kathryn and her baby McKay and husband, Daniel
Clare and Mesia with baby sister in the sling.When we returned from the river, the horses had gotten out of the pasture and were grazing around the cabin. Then they came right up to the back porch and wanted to come in!! I guess they wanted more carrots!
Chad, Joshua and Sawyer stayed over at the cabin for a couple of days with Brad and me. Their favorite thing to do was try to catch these little groundhogs. They finally learned how to do it, and ended up catching LOTS! I had to supervise and MAKE THEM let them go after a few minutes so that the poor things wouldn't get scared to death. Anyway, they had a good time...the boys, that is, NOT the ground hogs!!
