I can't deny it any longer... the wonderful, hot, and beautiful days of Summer are finally coming to an end. It's been such an adventure. Here are a few highlights on going on family road trips, seeing extended family, and spending time with some of my greatest friends. I will miss Summer terribly, but I am really really excited to start wearing sweaters and scarves.
My Grandpa Frayne passed away in June. This experience has had a huge impact on me, and I'm still trying to come to terms with it. He was such a huge part of my life, and it's been hard for me to get used to the idea that he is gone. I'm so grateful that this separation from him is only temporary. That has given me peace. The funeral brought my entire extended family together, and it was such a treat to see cousins, my cousin's spouses, second cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends of my Grandpa's. We drove up to Franklin, Idaho for the burial service, and right as it ended, it started to pour down rain and hail. We all ran to our cars, and as we pulled out of the cemetary, there was a full rainbow. While we were in Franklin, we drove by where my Grandpa grew up in a small and quaint white house. It was special to see that.
I took loads of pictures of Sammy. Here's a few gems of my little baby puppy. He's grown on all of us and the whole family is obsessed with him. He's just so cute.
Alright then. I'm ready for Fall!
