Older Than Dirt...90 Years and Counting

That was the theme for the Fromm Family reunion this past weekend. It was in Leavenworth and it was so much fun. We had barn dancing, service projects, a parade, water balloon fight, an auction, and a talent show. Makenna and I did a little skit for the talent show and it turned out really cute. It was great to be with Brett's family and I met a lot of people that were really nice and it was good to get to know them.

Pros and Cons

So there are definitely pros and cons of me not working during the summer time. The cons are that I do not get to teach sweet little kids every day that make me so happy. Also, sometimes I feel a little guilty as Brett is leaving for work and I am still laying in bed asleep. However, there are many pros to out wiegh these cons. For example, today I got to spend a great day at the beach with my mom, aunts, and sister. You can't beat laying in the sun while chatting with some of your best friends!

Kimberly is just so cute, I couldn't help putting this picture up of her.

Brett and I were fortunate enough to be able to go to the Coldplay concert and the Gorge this past weekend. Brett absolutely loves Chris Martin. He is a great entertainer and absolutely crazy during his concerts. We had a great time. We also met his brother, Jimmy, up there with one of his friends. I would have put a video on here, but I still can't figure that out.

Summer Work

Well some of you might be wondering, what in the world does Stephanie do during the summer time to keep herself busy? Don't you worry, because I made a summer list of things to do. Most of the items on this list included many things that I neglected to do during the school year because I was way too busy. But I had to share some of my favorite projects so far.

So when we moved into this wonderful old house, this piece of poorly put together book shelf came with it. As you can see they decided that they should line it with chicken coop wire for some reason. I thought that we would bring it to the dump immediately, but it ended up that we just kept putting more and more stuff in it. So I decided that if we were going to keep it there, I might as well make it look somewhat descent. I painted it and got rid of the wire. I like it much better.

Next was our HORRIBLY colored bedroom. I have hated this bedroom since the day I moved in. I don't know what the previous owners were thinking with the ceiling color and border. And believe me, these pictures do not even do this room justice to how utterly ugly it really is. I finally convinced Brett that we should paint it and I absolutely love my new room. It is so much more bright and refreshing. The after pictures are first on this one.

Off to Camp Reed

This week the girls are off the Camp Reed up by Newport. We just dropped them off today and they were both so excited. This is Makenna's first time, and Kyra's second time going. Here are some pics of us dropping them off. If you are wondering why they are mostly of Makenna, you just have to remember that Kyra HATES taking pictures. So no, I do not favor one girl over the other, Makenna just lets me take her picture :)
Getting ready to leave!

Happy 4th of July

I don't really have many pictures of the 4th because both the girls were sick ALL day long. I felt so bad for them. But we still did manage to have fun. My family came over to our house for a BBQ (you can look on my mom's blog for those pics) and then we went down to the park with Kim and Ben to watch the fireworks. These are all just pics while we were waiting for the show to start.

This is Kenna playing her air guitar, rocking out the the music!

Yes, this is what I woke up to Saturday morning. My lovely step daughter Kyra woke up early on Saturday and had nothing to do. So what else do 11 year olds do when they are bored? That is right, she decided to make me breakfast in bed! Can you believe it? Life just gets better and better every day with these girls and I am absolutley loving it. Thanks so much Kyra, I love you!

The Next Tiger Woods

Ok, not really even close. But I have been way into golf lately. It started when Brett got the Tiger Woods video game and I played one round with them. Now I will have you know that I absolutely HATE video games. It was quite the struggle for him to even get a play station into our house. In the six months that we have had it this is the first time that I actually played a game with him, and when I did....I LOVED IT. If I didn't think video games were an absolute complete waste of time I would play it more often. However, since I played with him I have been interested in watching all the tournaments and have really wanted to go golfing. Well this Saturday we finally went to a driving range. I foun out that golfing is SO much harder in real life than in video games. But I did still love it and can't wait to go again. Not to mention that we played around on a putting green and I beat Brett 3-2! Mom you can tell Logan to take me out now!

Congratualtions Kailee Fredrickson

I had the wonderful opportunity of going to Kailee Gross' wedding last weekend and it was absolutely amazing. It was the first sealing that I had been to since Brett and I got married so it was really cool to be there and have a different persepective on it. I don't really remember anything from my sealing except when I said "I do." But it was also really cool to be there to see this amazing couple and the love that they had for one another. I am so proud of Kailee and how far she has come. She is such and example to me and I am so grateful I was able to be there for her. The sun was very bright that day so I didn't get the best pictures, sorry. But believe me she was a beautiful bride!
