The September Summer Bummer

September is definitely a bummer around here.  School starts again, the days cool off and life gets back to the regular grind.  We love to just play and have fun all summer long, and we definitely lived it up this year.  We got to go boating nearly every weekend with our favorite fam, ate a lot of hamburgers, had 2 litters of kitties, went to San Diego and hung out at the beach, played at Rigby lake and the gym's swimming pool, played t-ball, played with friends, went up to the cabin, had a family reunion in Rexburg and capped it all off with a quick trip to a tiny town in Arizona for Uncle Zach's wedding.

This last picture is a statue that my uncle had made for Hemming Village.  It's a statue of my great grandma and grandpa Hemming that sits out in front of their log cabin that was built back in the early 1900s.  I love how much my Uncle Val and Aunt Alice appreciate and value art as a way of preserving heritage.  This statue was done by a professor on campus.  He made it by sculpting out of clay and then making a mold of that sculpture and finally casting it in bronze.  The detail is incredible.  I could look at it forever.

More summer pictures to come!
