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!
Darling Marge (left) is always the organizer and Carol is always right in there with food and support!
Always ready to help are Megan B, Joan C, Carol S and Beverly G!
Scrumptous food all around!
Some of our favorite people!
This was at the home and back garden of Molly W, who is one of our favorite people in the world!
Here she is on left with Jeanne, also a dear friend whose daughter just returned last week from a mission in Russia.
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!
Our dear neighbors, Kathy and Margie
Nancy and Louise
Nick and Lizzie, with whom we shared the shower honors!
At the end of the beautiful morning, we heard from each of the couples who talked about their engagement and their plans for the future.
While dad land “the ladies” looked on:
It was a never-to-be forgotten tribute to Anita and Talmadge and the amazing women of our ward!
