r.c. stutz reunion 2012

During our summer trip to Utah 2012, we not only celebrated the girls' 4th birthday, but also the return of our favorite senior missionaries--Jordan's parents.  They returned home from serving 18 months in the Spokane, WA mission, and were we ever glad to see them!!
We were in charge of the R.C. Stutz family reunion that year, so we decided we would spend our time together celebrating the upcoming arrivals of a niece and nephew with a double baby shower, doing a few service projects around the R.C. Stutz homestead, and hearing Mom and Dad report on their mission.  We loved every minute of the reunion--especially the reuniting part!

two little fishies...

Yes indeed, our little girls are part fish.  They took swim lessons over summer 2012 and boy, was it fun to watch.  It worked out quite nicely too--their lessons started at 10, which was around the time Graham went down for his first nap, so Jordan just stayed home with him and studied there until I got back.  It was so fun to be able to see the girls in one of their first experiences as a "student".  They were pretty good most of the time, and the swim instructors did a pretty good job of keeping them busy, but every once-in-a-while, the rascal would come out in them, and they would start climbing out, and then jumping in to the pool while the teacher was giving instructions.  What can I say?  Fish gotta swim:)
