My birthday was not highly anticipated, but greatly celebrated and appreciated! The surprises started Thursday night. Reed arranged for me to take a glass-blowing class. It was something I will never forget. Interesting, fun, and HOT! I made a pumpkin...to be forever displayed as part of my Fall decor.
I volunteered to plan our 44th Anniversary Dinner...getting six retired couples together should be easy, right? Ha! We are all busy as ever, it seems. Finally, the date was set, reservations made, the day arrived...I got sick. Stomach flu took its toll, I missed my party!!! I was so sad...I sent Reed with instructions to listen to everyone's stories and return and tell me everything.

I thought Bailey would enjoy Gramma Camp with an emphasis on the arts...so we began at the Boise Art Museum:

I couldn't settle on a theme for the 12s camp, so I decided we would just do 12 special activities...they said, "Yay!"

The theme for Bellamie's Gramma Camp this year was Science. When I told her, she said, "I LOVE science!" Traditionally, we begin at the Story Trail at Foothills Learning Center. It's our little hike to get our camp started.

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!!
