Seminary graduation

This picture is out of order and I can't seem to move it, so if you want the story behind the picture it is at the bottom of this post under "Boating"

On Sunday Travis graduated from seminary.  Hard to believe it's graduation time already.  We had a great time and enjoyed the meeting very much.  It was especially fun because Jamie also graduated.  Here are a few pictures of the blessed event!

Finally after 7 years of living in this house, I have window treatments in my bedroom.  I am so excited to have it done.  I think they are beautiful!!!

Yesterday we went boating at Black Canyon Resevoir with the Swensens.  It was a pretty interesting night.  To start off it took us about 30 min. to get the boat out of the garage!  It was in there pretty tight.  We finally get going and get to the lake and it was covered with tons of wood and junk from the spring run off so Kerry pretty much docked the boat and we got outand enjoyed the park instead.  We didn't want to ding a prop or hurt the boat right at the beginning of the season, that would stink.  We got home about 10:00 and pulled under the carport and suddenly heard this awful sound.  We forgot that the tower was still up on the boat!  This was not good.  We bent the tower and put a hole in the roof of the carport but it gets worse.  We could not get the boat out because the tower wold hit the beams if we moved it and there wasn't enough room to get the tower down because we needed more clearance to lift it up and off.  So the only way we could think to lower the boat was to take the air out of the tires.  It worked!!!  Kerry got the pole off and the tires blown up and all is well except for the nice hole in the carport.  You can thank Chelsea for the great picture.

Today I flew in Kerry's new airplane.  We went to McCall for breakfast.  KERRY KEPT REFERRING TO HIS PLANE AS "SEXY". AND I KEPT SAYING "HOW CAN A PLANE BE SEXY"?  "OH, IT JUST IS".  WELL FINALLY I GET TO SEE THE PLANE AND I GUESS AS FAR AS PLANES GO, AND COMPARED TO THE OTHER PLANES WE SAW, IT WAS KIND OF SEXY.  (sorry I had the caps button pushed.)  It was great to get to McCall in 30 minutes and the seat is nicer than the other plane, but I just don't get that thrill and excitement out of flying.  I just wasn't born to fly!!  Kerry did a great job however.  Our landings were great and he even dodged another plane so we wouldn't collide.  
It's a good thing he has a friend and some sons-in-law who share his love for flying.  As for me I'll stick to tennis!!

Senior Prom

These are pictures of Travis from Prom.  His date's name is Elizabeth.  Wow, what a cute girl!  Travis looks pretty good himself, that is when his eyes are open!!  Good choice Travis!
Boat ride on the Ptomic River, I believe.  Fun but a little chilly.
Trav the Man!
I think we were a little tired here.  Even our monkey friend looks a little sleepy.  This was taken at the Museum of Natural History.
Hey, What's she doing on Travis' senior trip?  Causing trouble at the White House I hear.
So here is Travis the "senior" with his Mom (not a senior yet) with the Washington Monument in the background!
