The first of the Gramma Camps was held this weekend. Cache is 9, going into 4th grade this fall, so he will be studying Idaho history. So, our camp had an Idaho theme! We began at the capitol; explored top to bottom! We worked up the courage to enter the reception area of the Governor's office (which wasn't necessary...we were warmly welcomed), the secretary gave Cache a packet of information especially for kids, and told us to go right on into the Governor's office. Only in Idaho!!

We finished the vacation part of our trip in Seaside. We have been coming here for 30 years. WOW! Now our kids bring their kids here too. This is the ultimate tourist beach town!
From Seattle, we drove down to Long Beach, Washington...we love it there...sometimes we are the only ones on the beach. It's never crowded and is our favorite place to relax.
We drove to Ellensburg, WA on July 3, because we had to work on the way to Seattle on the morning of the 4th. When we arrived in Woodinville, our next task was to find the indoor soccer facility at which the reunion festivities were to begin. After driving around back roads, Google-mapping, stopping strangers who looked like soccer moms, we ended up at the first place we had disregarded because we didn't see the sign.

Dallin is the man with the plan...I am the "money"...Missy is the manager...we opened Below Zero in Middleton, ID. It is a shaved ice stand, and yesterday was opening day. Other than giving back a $20 and a $5 in change for a $20, everything went smoothly! (Honest lady returned the $20!!)
Friday night was such a treat for us...Reed's cousin's son: Myles Lawrence performs in a band called The Strike ( Based in Provo, UT; they won a national contest last year to perform with Kelly Clarkson at Stadium of Fire on the Fourth of July. ) and they appeared in Boise at the Linen Building. You can see them on YouTube, but in person is a whole other experience!! Great music, superb performers!!
Brooklyn and her partner danced a "showcase" number to "Happy"...I have no idea how to get the video onto this blog, so these are stills I took before the performance. They danced a jive, and the showcase had a tropical theme, thus, the dress with a floral pattern, and the hair in "victory rolls" which Eden achieved using toilet paper rolls!

It has been a while since we celebrated a baseball championship around here! Cache is starting the next phase of our tradition...their season wasn't spectacular...several losses, but when the tournament started, his team rallied! At the championship game, the other team took a 4-2 lead after 2 innings. The "Rangers" rallied again and prevailed.
