|Klint & Mary's July News|
It’s been a fun summer. The biggest thing to report on for July was our trip to Havasupai.
Havasupai is an Indian Reservation on the west rim on the Grand Canyon. So you hike down 10 miles into paradise! You are surrounded by canyon walls and desert and in the midst of you there are gorgeous waterfalls and rivers. All I can say is amazing. This was Klint’s 6th straight year going down and my second. We love it! This year we gathered a group of 14 to go (our friends and some of Klint’s family.) The pictures do no justice for the beauty. Last year I was skeptical since I had been to waterfalls in Kaua’i, but this was different and even more beautiful! Anyway, it’s Klint’s favorite vacation he looks forward to each year.
Oour garden has been flourishing. We now have zucchini, cucumbers, & beans from our garden. Still waiting on our tomatoes and potatoes. It's so great to see the "fruit" of our labors. We keep saying "we grew this!" Anyway, my best friend, Bri, had her one year mission mark and will be coming home in December from her mission in England so I am so happy! Klint finally got a barbecue so he’s happy. I’ve been riding my bike (Klint bought me a new one once I started riding my old bike!) to work everyday for a month now which is 4 miles each way and takes about 21 minutes to work and 26 back (going home is harder since it’s an incline.) I do get to work all red and sweaty, but it’s really fun and I’m saving gas money and getting exercise! And it doesn’t feel like exercise since I enjoy it and I have a destination. We went up to Heber Valley Camp for a mini family reunion with Mom & Larry who are on their 2nd year there as missionaries. It was good to see all my Egbert step-siblings and new babies in the family. On Larry’s birthday July 31st Klint and I celebrated our “anniversary” of meeting 3 years ago!
