Sad News

Yesterday was a nice day for our family. We went to DH's family cabin and hauled and chopped wood for almost 3 hours. We didn't swim because of all the rain raised the river 8 to 10 inches. It was very cold. Mya jumped in twice then swam right back out. She is a fish. We took dinner to a family in our ward (church congregation) because they just had a new baby. Then we went to my brother's house for his son's birthday party. We had a really good time. His son just turned four. Recently he was left unattended outside for just a few minutes and he climbed up on the picnic table and got the knife out of the BBQ set and made at least 25 large gashes in the fairly new trampoline. My brother said to replace just that part is only about $20 less than what they paid for the entire trampoline. Funny to us because it's not our kid. They got him a kid size John Deere tractor that goes 4 miles an hour. He rode that thing around the yard for an hour. Smiling and driving.

Unfortunately, sad news overshadowed our day. One of my cousins who lives in Southern Utah died Friday night. The news report gives details but it didn't say her age for some reason. She was 22 and she was engaged to be married in December. I didn't know her super well but she was a really sweet girl. I am sad for her family and I know it will be hard for my Grandma who is still very sad about Grandpa passing away a year and a half ago.

On a lighter note: poor, poor trampoline! He never hurt anyone, but little boys don't care, for they aim to destroy all!

On a heavier note: It is so sad to read about the accident which resulted in your cousin's death. I am very sorry for your family's loss.
