The week before Collin left on his mission was packed with all sorts of extended family fun. We went camping with Mark's family in Idaho at Buena Vista Sand dunes. We had fun making memories with the cousins. Sadly Darn, ugh, I left the Sim card for the camera home. So no pics of the Gibby family camp out. My dad was up from Arkansas for Collin's farewell. We all wanted to spend some time with grandpa. We , my sister Christel my niece Ireland Collin parker Sariah meg and I went to Pine view reservoir. Above Sariah was so brave she kayaked all by herself for the very first time. She did a great job. Below Collin and meg in a kayak together. Meg loved it she was not afraid at all. In fact she wanted to go all by herself and row. Maybe next time we told her.

Below: My dad Grandpa Grange. We all know how hard it is to tip a kayak if you have ever been. Well Grandpa succeeded. He was fine, but not his "new" glasses they now reside in the bottom of the reservoir.
Mark and I took Collin through the Brigham City temple in June. We had a great excuse to go as many times to the temple as time would allow with Collin before he left on his mission. Collin had his Farewell on July 17th. He did an awesome Job on his talk. I kept thinking after his talk wow he has grown up tons this is not the same Collin he was a year ago he is ready to be a missionary.
