Visiting July

Well July came and went, but that doesn't mean we didn't have fun here at the Fuhriman home! Each week we had a new visitor come to see us:

Week One

Grandpa Fuhriman came through to drop off some furniture from STL (I'll post about that later) he went to Oregon, but he missed us so much that he came back for the Fourth. While he was here Scott's brother Tim and his family were in town. Our sweet nieces dance every year in the Stadium of Fire here in Provo. It was great seeing them, but we also got to meet the new addition to the family...Keegan!

My Fourth of July Cake! I've always wanted to make this cake and I think it might just become a new tradition. 

So we went to the Provo temple to watch the fireworks this year...never again! We were stuck in traffic for hours. We didn't get home until one in the morning!

Week 2 
The week started off with us going down to Fairview to check out a reunion and retreat center where we might have our family reunion in a few years. It's called Fairview Reunion & RetreatAt the retreat there are goats...
and Chalotte loved to watch movies on the big screen in the conference room...

During week 2 and 3, I went back to work to fill in for Rich, my old boss at Dukes Jewelers. It was nice to go back, but I sure did miss my little woman at home. I don't know how working moms do it...I was so tired by the time I got home. Three cheers for moms that make it work.

Week 3
My old roomie and dear friend Ellen came into town to catch up. We all love hanging out with her and always enjoy her visits. She took our little family out to dinner to the
Bombay House. It was so wonderful! (as I'm typing this, I'm craving it.) While she was here we got to together with our Freshmen and Sophomore roomies. It was fun to see all of them and catch up on life.

Week 4
We were looking forward to this week to see Melissa and Maya! It was so nice to spend some time with them. It made us miss the old days when they lived less than a hundred feet away. The little girls enjoyed getting to know each other as well.

Charlotte loves her friend's ears too!

Charlotte likes to pretend to lead music while she sings. She really gets into it! 

It was so wonderful to see them, but we did miss Rob! (maybe next time) Maybe next summer we will go see the Holmes in NH!

Week 5
Busy once more. We had a couple of days to regroup before Scott's parents came to stay with us. They came for the Ralston family reunion, which is every two years. It was a lot of fun to see family, but there were many missing this year. Out of the eight children from Scott's family only two were there: Scott and his sister, Darci. Hopefully they will all be there in two years! 
Also this past month I was put in the new Young Women's Presidency as the 2nd counselor. I'm over the Beehives (12-13 year olds). They are full of energy and make me giggle all the time. I'm really excited for the new responsibilities...wish me luck!
