Shower Power!

On the night of the 16th of July we journeyed back to Salt Lake from Bear Lake and the morning of the 17th Rick went to Provo to speak at the Imagine Learning Conference in Provo where Noah, Eli and Ben had been all week.

I was glad for a day in Salt Lake to catch up and get ready for the arrival of our newly engaged couple…Tal and Anita!  It was so fun to pick them up at the airport just after midnight and catch up on their wedding plans. 

The next morning, was the Ward Shower.  This is the 9th shower that the wonderful women of our ward have produced for the Eyre family.  What a heroic bunch! 

It was so fun to introduce Anita to so many of the women of our ward and of course they were delighted to meet her as well!

Because I had pleaded with Dad not to wear his grubby shorts to the shower, he and Talmadge showed up about half way through the event in the Smart Car with tuxedos!  That was certainly a fun addition to the party…fun, but pretty hot!
