primary talk

Levi gave his first talk in church today. It was so cute! I was up there helping him, and he was speaking loud and clear as we was basically eating the mic. He did a very good job, the microphone just needs to be sanitized.

Here is his talk:
My name is Levi. I know that missionary work is important. I have two grandmas who were baptized because of missionaries. The missionaries taught them about Jesus and Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. I am so glad for missionaries who taught my family the gospel.
One of the missions of the church is to Proclaim the Gospel. That means its our job to share what we know about Jesus. We can invite friends to primary, gave away Book of Mormons, be good examples and feed the missionaries. Why wait until we are grown up to be a missionary? We can be missionaries now.

Afterwards Levi jumped down and ran up to his daddy to give him a big hug. He was so proud of himself. And we of him.

saskatoon bugs

When one moves to Saskatoon there are a few things that are likely to happen eventually over time.
First, we developed a love for Smallville. That started when we came out here to house hunt.
Second, we developed a sixth sense to watch out for crazy drivers. You would be amazed at how red of a light people will run here.
Next, we discovered how much we miss chinooks.
Along with the previous lesson learned, we have realized to get outside and enjoy good weather while it is here.
Last, and this is something I never thought I would catch, is the running bug. A lot of people here run. Rain or shine, winter or summer, inside and out. People here (not all, of course) seem to like to run. I am now one of them. I love to turn on my ipod and run down the cracked streets and listen to my feet hit the pavement. There is something so peaceful about it. This is one cold I hope to have caught for a while.

spray play

This town is famous for all their spray parks and fun things to do outside during the summer. If only the summer months would last forever...

here you go mom

By request:

We got back a few days ago from a trip to Calgary. It was fun but super busy.
Here are a few pics from the zoo. You can tell in a few of the pictures how hot is was. We were fryin'!
