We were able to spend a VERY exciting week with Zach's family in AUGUST. This week was special because Zach's sister AMY JO came home from her mission in ARGENTINA!! We were counting down the days until she got home, and were SO happy when this day was finally here. She is absolutely ADORABLE!! We know that she was an AMAZING missionary, but we are glad to have her HOME. Later on in the week, Zach's mom (Jolene) and step-dad (Burton) were SEALED in the Jordan River temple after being married for almost 18 years. After the sealing, they had a big family celebration dinner where we were able to visit with family and close friends. We were so glad that we were able to attend such a SPECIAL sealing, and share in this happy day with them. Zach's brothers and sisters and their families live all over the country. Many of them were able to come into town for this great week. We LOVED seeing all of them, and spending time with the ones that we don't get to see very often. We LOVE our family, and LOVED being able to see so many of them this summer!!
Here are some pictures of our exciting week...
