Its August already?! What happened to July?

Does anyone else find it hard to believe that it is August?! July just flew by with a rush of activity and other things that I can hardly believe it is now August! So what happened in July that needs to be told?

Mom and I took a little vacation to St. George to see the Tuachan plays. They were fantastic! It was so much fun to spend a few days as the girls. We ate where we wanted, did a little shopping, and stuck around to get a few pictures with some of the characters. We really enjoyed both productions and if you get the chance I encourage you to attend. Tarzan was great! I loved the characters (Jane was fantastic, Terk is a favorite), the costuming was awesome, and the music as good as it could get. The acrobatics were awe-inspiring... what more can you say? I even got Mom to stand next to Kercheck for a picture after the show.

Cats was incredible. We still aren't totally sure what actually happened in the play... or what it was all about... but the music, the dancing, the costumes, the acting... it was all fantastic. Mom and I decided we liked Cats the best of the two. It did help that we were closer to the stage so we could see the little cat-like things that the actors were doing when they weren't singing. We enjoyed it enough that we had to make sure we got a few pictures to capture the amazingness of the costumes and characters. I posed with Rum Tum Tugger (who was pretty much the cat version of Mit Jagger). Mom found her favorite cat (still not sure of his name...) and the railroad cat...

aren't the costumes just breathtaking?!

It was a hot few days (108 degrees anyone?) but we had fun and got to have some mommy-daughter bonding.

We spent the weekend of the 24th with family. First a celebration in Logan for a couple birthdays with some delicious food. Then up north to Lava Hot Springs for my family reunion. We had a blast! It was so fun to see the family. We did some river rafting, ate some good food, and I was able to attend my cousin's farewell talk on Sunday (who did a fantastic job and got his whole family to cry).

We have been sewing up a storm here at my Mom's house the past couple weeks. I'm learning, and we are making a couple of aprons... :) Sorry no pictures as of yet, still working on them... We're trying to get them finished before school starts up again... which brings me back to... I can't believe its the beginning of August! I guess that is it for now. Tune in next time for some more excitement!... (hopefully soon!)
