This morning 

TThe WEPR Gathering has begun . . .
Steve and Natalie, Kimble and Carter were the first ones to pull in
about 5:00 p.m., followed within a few minutes by
Julie & John, Jacee, Jackson, Maddie, and Rigdon.

 Since the Friday before, Steve 'n Nat and the boys 
had driven 3,000 miles to Nauvoo and back for
a reunion with Natalie's parents on their mission there.
All of her siblings and families were there except
for Quinette "Q" and family
who now live in Australia.
Bert and Peggy Smith have 7 children.
 Instead of our traditional gathering meal of
"Stew and Scones" we decided to not heat up
our un-air conditioned and had everyone
eat supper at Taco Bandido.
Walt and I chose enchiladas and salad.
 Everyone is so kind to help Grampa    
to keep from falling.
 Kimble and Carter put up three hammocks.
The hammocks were a big hit.
Four of the guys slept outside. 
Janie and Sam were held up an extra hour
because of road repairs...just as they arrived
a new tradition was hatched...but Grampa
and I think it will probably be this time only.
They called Gary who was almost right
at the site of their teenage shenanigans,
so he rendezvoused at the 
KOA campground...Exit 216...about 8pm. jump off "Gravity Bridge,"
you have to climb over a fence to get up
to Interstate 84 above.
 Then walk from the east lane overpass to...
...the overpass of the west lanes 
with traffic whizzing by at 80-m-p-h.
Right now--because of the bridge repair work--
the one lane was blocked off so they were
not in the traffic.
(That's why we think this is a one-time
adventure.  After the Snake River Bridge
is repaired, that lane will not be blocked.)
 Kimble and Carter did not pause...they were
up and over and into the canal--
even before Natalie could
take their they went back and 
jumped again.
Some took a little longer to get psyched up.
As Grampa said: "From the canal up to the does look the 40 feet it is.
However, from the top looking down,
it looks 400 feet!"
Natalie's count of "3-2-1-jump"
didn't do it for everyone, either.
 The 8 brave ones (or crazy ones)
who jumped are:
Gary, Janie, Sam, Jacee, Julie,
Kimble, Carter, and Steve.

 Walt physical therapy this morning. 
Julie surprised us, popping in after her
spring Blueberry gathering.
AllAll the Blueberry girls got to be together this time.
Julie, Emy, Trista, Cindy, Jan, Jen, Stacy, and Kim.
Julie snapped a photo of Walt and me before she left.
It was a chilly morning as Julie drove away at 8:20.

Rest of the day

That afternoon I had a 3-month diabetic check up with Dr. Spackman.

Tuesday - June 13, 2017

We drove to Utah for our son, David, to examine my eyes.  There is no glaucoma or retenopathy, but I do have a small cataract starting in my right eye.  Dr. David said it could take up to five years for it to grow enough for me to need cataract surgery.
Walt took a photo of David with his head paraphanalia with the light...but evidently the camera snap button didn't get hit correctly so there is no photo.

Julie is one of the chaperones on Anna's high school Theater Club trip to New York City to see 7 Broadway plays.  So David had Josh, Sam, and William rendezvous with us at their favorite Mexican food restaurant: El Farol's in Sandy.

When Julie was growing up, her family ate their every Monday night--a great family tradition.

 The three boys all ordered their preferred items.

 Walt and I went to the viewing for Bill Cranney.  I mentioned to his daughter how many beautiful flowers there were and she said they told the family that over 90 arrangements had been delivered with more coming.

Saturday - June 3, 2017

 Walt and I drove to Oakley (20 miles) to Bill Cranney's funeral.  Actually his full name was listed William Duane Cranney IV.

Here's a photo of Walt speaking with Nancy.  President Gerratt said in his talk:

Sunday - June 4, 2017

 Re-Dedication of the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple.
We went to the 9:00 a.m. Session, and the 3:00 Session.
We wan't to also go to the 12:00 Noon session, but didn't make it.

Our neighbors and friends, David and Alice Hansen, came to the 3:00 session.

We pray you have had a peaceful and restful Sunday.

We bear testimony at the end of this Sabbath Day that...

Heavenly Father knows each one of us and loves us.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God was came to earth to fulfill the Plan of Salvation by atoning for our sins.  He is our Redeemer and Savior.  He also knows and loves each one of us.

Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Restoration.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true.

The Bible is the Word of God as far as it is translated correctly.  The Book of Mormon is also the Word of God and is Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

President Thomas S. Monson is the living Prophet on the earth today.  He is the Prophet for the entire world.

Priesthood temple ordinances seal families together forever.

Of these truths we testify, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
