bogey birthday

Adam is 26 on Augest Second. We had a small celebration with just us before we left but we also are celebrating tonight with his parents in Salt Lake City. We are staying with mom and dad Gedeborg at their new appartment, they will be staying there for their mission and I am pretty sure they will be starting their mission on Friday. YAY!! Sooo this week we left on Saturday morning and went to Manti for Emma's baby blessing. (for Bob and Amanda's newest baby). that night we had a hot dog cook out and slept in tents outside. It was really funny that night when we woke up to a symphony of cat meows and that morning to the rooster's crow. We woke up Sunday morning and got ready for church. I was really grateful that i got to get Emma ready for church. I got to give her a bath (first baby bath for me), and get her dressed in her beautiful little white dress. When Amanda was telling me what to do for the bath she wasn't kidding that she would get slippery. haha. After church we went to a park in Manti and ate. there was a wide variety of food and lots of little kids running around and having fun. After the Lunchin we decided to go to Becky and Jim Bob's for the night and we at a big bowl of chili for dinner and went to bed in their tree house. Now this is no ordinary tree house. it is 3 stories tall and the top layer even has screen windows, a loft, and a skylight. BEAUTIFUL! every little kids dream complete with christmas lights wrapped around the trunk and a 2 person swing. In the morning we woke up, it was Adam's birthday, YAY!! We ate micky mouse waffles that were SOOO good and had cranberry apple juice. there was even huckleberry syrup. After a very filling breakfast we headed out for SALT LAKE CITY!! woo hoo. Oh did i mention that we are rereading the Harry Potter series on all of our road trips. Yes there has been that many. We are on the 4th book already. Anyways, we helped mom and dad Gedeborg move into their new appartment they will be staying in for their mission. We went to the store for a few things and then ate dinner at Jenny's brother's house (She is my new sister-in-law). It was a full day. When we got back we set up our bed and crashed for the night. Today we have done a ton! We woke up and went to the Welfare Square in town and did a tour. I recomend it to everyone. It was amazing to learn about how the chruch functions and helps everyone and the saints to live comfortable lives. This truly is an amazing church. We also went to costco and Adam and I went with my family to visit my Great Great Aunt Caroline. She lives right across the street from temple square and we visit her as often as we can when we come to salt lake. She is such an incredible woman. So independant and so many stories. Now we are at the Family History library doing some research on family names. Adam and his dad are trying to find some names on their side that have been difficult to find sometimes. Tonight we are going to go out to dinner to celebrate Adam's birthday. (if you celebrate it late it is called a bogey birthday-according to Becky) Then we are going to a concert at a park on temple square. WHAT FUN!!! Tomorrow we will be going to Chase and Jenny's wedding at the Salt Lake Temple. I am so excited for them they are such a good match for eachother. Chase is my brother. Afterwards we will be going to a lunchin at a chruch nearby and then heading back to our little quiet home in rexburg Idaho. Oh and the best thing about the trip home is that we will be picking up a baby kitten on the way home. Her name is Oreo! She will be our first cat EVER so if you have any tips let us know. We will be getting her fixed so we don't have to worry about kittens. Anyways. That is our fun and exciting trip so far. I will post pictures as soon as we get home and can do that.
