July Update

Lots of fun things happened this month. We had a Hilton Family Reunion and it was great to see many relatives that we hadn't seen for a long time.

We also went on a long trip that included stops in Boise, Meridian, Nyssa, Seattle (Redmond) and finally back home.

One random thing that happened was while eating in a park we saw a guy with a cool bird. He let all of our kids hold it.

We had a great time in Seattle going to "the beach" (really a lake) and taking several hikes. We also went to the dentist and got cool prizes.

(I know this looks like a grimace, but really Maria is smiling).

Mostly it was fun just to be with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We also got to participate in Reed Powell's baptism, which was wonderful. Overall, we were out of our house for about 20/30 days in July and are looking forward to spending more time at home in August.
