July 2010

July started off with a bang. July also brought the Wyne Family Reunion. We went over to the other side of the state and went to Camp Taylor. It was very fun. The cousins all played, the adults ate, read, napped. It doesn't get better.
One of the Wyne traditions is to exchange homemade Christmas presents. We decided that the best time to do it was at the reunion. It sure makes Christmas time less hectic. This year we hit the jackpot. We drew names and my parents had Doug & I. My mom made us this fabulous quilt. I absolutely love it. It matches everything in our room and it reminds me everyday that I'm loved. My dad made this for Doug. It was made on a scroll saw and represents everything that he loves: wildlife, singing, motorcycles, dogs, Boise State and of course the Savior. It is just beautiful.
As soon as the reunion was over we dived right into preparations for "Trek". I was in charge of designing and making 200 of these. No, not the kids but the over the shoulder, oh so lovely, highly fashionable "possible bags". There were many who helped in this adventure. I'm very glad for their service.

  1. Wow, Mindy...good job on updating us on your summer. No wonder you haven't had much time on your made me tired just reading about everything you've done! I can't wait to see your quilt and Doug's scrollwork of "favorite things" - they look beautiful and I'm sure the pictures don't do them justice. Your parents are very talented...I see where you get it!
