July started off with Charley heading to EFY in San Antonio. Mom made her get a haircut before heading out. She picked the cut. I think its super cute, she's still undecided. Charley was not happy she was headed to San Antonio instead of Provo but at the end of the week she announced she was soooo glad she went to San Antonio and wants to return again next year. Success! She roomed with another young woman in our ward and they have become great friends, hooray!
We enjoyed our first 4th of July here in TX. We surely missed our normal ward breakfast in SoJo but found our local park put on quite a bash. We found the neighborhood does a great parade just down the street from us and the community goes all out with fun things at the park. The local fire department comes with their ladder trucks and sprays us all down with their hoses from the top of the ladder. Then there is just about every kind of blowup bouncy house, joust, rock wall, water slide you can think of at the park as well as a barbecue fired up. We ended the night with a few small fireworks out front with our neighbors across the street, and a few bigger ones from neighbors down the street. Everyone was saying how great it was that the temperature was only in the 90's. I have to say we were grateful too!
