I rode down the big slide with Madi. Alex rode with Shaun. They had a great time.
Maisey stayed home with my mom during the festival (It was up close to 100 degrees). While we were taking her to my mom's house we got stopped by a road block of police cars. We were wondering what was going on. Was there a police stand off? Was there a fugitive in the area? Was there a bad accident ahead? Nope!!! Barrack Obama was coming to the Keizer Iris Festival. His motor brigade drove right by us! We could see him in his big black bus! So by the time we took Mais to my mom's he was already at the festival. Shaun shook his hand and took some really close up pictures. Even though we may or may not support him, it was still kind of cool to think that he would come to the LITTLE town of Keizer, OR.
The big black bus!
Obama--Pleasing the crowd!
His wifey, Michelle, visited also!
In other news...
I spoke in church today! I don't think it was very good though. It was all about finances. I prepared pretty well, but I didn't have much time to practice because of all the babysitting this weekend. Oh well, at least it is over and I don't have to speak on the Allegory of the Olive Tree like Shaun does next week! Thanks hun for letting me have the easier topic!
Also, church was pretty crazy cuz we took the two extra kiddos with us! After my talk I came back and sat by the zoo on the fifth row (you know, Shaun and three kids, one which was ours!) We left after Sacrament Meeting, but not before Shaun said that we aren't having anymore kids! It was pretty wild! I felt bad for those who came to Sacrament meeting to actually feel the spirit and learn something!
To end the post on a sad note... my uncle had a heart attack this morning. He is in Vegas too, so it's kind of a weird situation. Anyway, it just brings back memories of my dad and being in the hospital and stuff. I do not wish that upon any person in the whole world! It totally sucks, and I feel bad that my aunt and cousins have to go through this! Please keep them in your prayers!
