4th of July 2012

We celebrated the 4th of July with our usual tradition of taking a picnic dinner to the Sandy City promenade. Rose and her family met with us to share in the celebration.
We watched the parade - we managed to get some bleacher seats which after a while were fairly shady.  The weather was warm, but there was a light breeze which made the evening very enjoyable.

We enjoyed our dinner and played some games and listed to the concert and basically hung out until the fireworks.

Happy Birthday America!

New Calling

Anthony hasn't been Sunday School President in our ward for very long and I have been in the Young Women's for even less time, yet last week we were asked to meet with a member of the Stake Presidency. Anthony was sure we were there because I was getting a new calling, and I was convinced we were there for something for him.

It turns out that I was right - Anthony was called to be the First Assistant to the High Priest Group Leader which meant he was also being advanced in the priesthood to a High Priest.

He was ordained today, and was pleased that his father was able to come and be the one to ordain him a High Priest. He was then set apart by a member of the Stake Presidency and given a beautiful blessing. It was a very special day.
