Last weekend we attended a huge Gardner reunion in St. George. There were 1,000 Gardners there. My great(x4) Grandfather Robert Gardner helped settle St. George and was the first mayor and bishop there. In his honor they put a huge statue of him in the city center. Elder Holland (who is a Gardner) dedicated and unveiled the statue. It was really awesome! We had a blast visiting with relatives we hadn't seen forever and we also got to visit the McDonald fam. It was a great weekend.

The great outdoors!
A couple of weekends ago we headed down to San Clemente State Park to have our first family campout. I know it isn't that exotic of a location but it was a blast. (Minus the 1 hour of sleep I got since Avery decided to share a sleeping bag with me and take up all the space:)

A few weekends ago we headed down to Malibu. We had soo much fun! We got to see tons of friends and enjoy the beautiful weather. Avery was in absolute heaven with her best friends Cambrie and Faith. On Sunday we visited our old church in the Palisades and Avery was so excited to see everyone. Being a small ward she always got tons of attention. It is kind of sad now when we go to our new church and she turns around with a huge grin on her face, only to see that nobody notices. She misses the Palisades where she had so many fans. (The word fans probably sounds ridiculous but we did have two 14 year old boys chasing our car down the street as we drove away hoping to get one last glimpse of their old pal Avery. What a riot! )
