Lotsa Oxen, Summer Solstice Edition

A few days ago, we hit midsummer, and the weather must've been paying attention, because it's been HOT! It doesn't help that we don't have central AC, but we did put our window unit in.

First, we want to wish a Happy (belated) Father's Day to all those out there that it applies to. Don't worry, we called our dads, too...

Thanks for your examples, love, and support! Below is a video that captures the wonderful traits of fatherhood and manhood that we find in both of our dads:
"True manhood is not always measured by the fruits of one’s labors but by the labors themselves—by one’s striving. Though he will make some sacrifices and deny himself some pleasures in the course of honoring his commitments, the true man leads a rewarding life. He gives much, but he receives more, and he lives content in the approval of his Heavenly Father. The life of true manhood is the good life."

—Elder D. Todd Christofferson ("Let Us Be Men")
We got to enjoy a dinner at the Olive Garden...

Lisa and her shrimp entrée
...and went to a wedding reception and saw some friends...

Beautiful setting...
...great company...
...good food...
...weird friends...
...oh, and a bride and groom.
...and went on a 4 mile walk to DI (turned out it was closed when we got there)...

The Y from the other angle
...and went to the Provo and the Mount Timpanogos temples!

Pretty window colours if you look closely
A pile of dirt and rock behind the temple
The sky

The fountain
Also, Lisa made a mini kimono of sorts...

An underpaid seamstress
The finished product...just needs a kid to fill it
...and we cooked...

Raw pigs in blankets
...and we got a Bountiful Basket again.

Bountiful spoils
Oh, and Lisa dominated her Calculus II class!
