the guys in thier wetsuits
This last weekend Bry and I along with Tyler and Dave drove up to Roosevelt Friday during the day. We got there around six and settled in. Saturday was an all day event. We went wake boarding on Ray and Nancy’s boat along with Tylers little brother Mitch, and of course Bruce, Carla and Kiley. The weather was bit cold for boating as you can see by Carla and I in our sweatshirts. It was fun regardless though. After boating we came back and BBQed for a bit and enjoyed the beautiful day! After we were full from the wonderful meal we were off to go paintballing! It was Bryan, Tyler and I on one team with Dave Bruce and Ray on the other team. We played three rounds and we tied one lost one and won one! It was a blast. We left early Sunday morning and drove back to Salt Lake. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer. It really was a short weekend!
Last week we all (BK,Ash,Bry,me,Kev,Dev,Lauren) went up to this park in the avenues. We have gone up here a couple of nights and played night games. Our favorite game to play is Sardines. One person goes and hides and the rest of the people have to find him/her and hide with him/her. Last one to come hide loses. It’s a fun little game especially since it’s a big park and you can’t see a thing at night. We played some glow in the dark Frisbee as well. Here a pic from that night
So yesterday we decided to drive up to the mountains to have a little campfire fun! Well..... as we were driving up it decided to start thunderstorming! So here are some picture of us gettting into the car to go... and then there are none of us actually there.... :(

So Saturday we decided to go to Raging Waters for some fun in the sun! Here are some pictures from the day. The slide at the end was so amazing! There was this huge drop off you basically fell all the way down to the middle.... so scary
So Trevor got his call to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints back in May. He was called to serve a two year mission in the Sapporo Japan Mission. He was to report to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) on Aug 27th for language and missionary training. He is going to spend 12 weeks in the MTC perfecting his Japanese and learning the lessons that he will be teaching to the people of Sapporo. When Trevor was little he was asked what he would be doing after high school and he wrote that he would be serving a mission in Japan. Even Carla knew he was going to be called to Japan. She has been saying that ever since he was little. So when he got called to Japan everyone was excited but not surprised! We are all going to miss Trevor a ton! We all left him in tears, but he was ready. I asked him on Wednesday if it had hit him yet, and he said that he was excited and ready to go. I know he will be an excellent Missionary. Trevor has always been the quite one but I know that he loves his family, his Heavenly Father and his Church, and that’s why I know he will do great. Japan is lucky to have an Elder Todd! We will miss you tons Trev!

We got home from Hawaii on the morning of Aguust 19th and we came home to a bunch of Todd’s in Salt Lake! Jess and Keven came over from California to spend the last week here in Utah with Trevor. It was a great week! We ended up doing a bunch of things from bowling, going to Lagoon, paintballing, golfing and boating(with the Hussey’s)! It was a great week ending in a Sunday Farewell. Trev got to talk in church on Sunday and everyone came over for lunch directly after church. Trevor gave a great talk and I know in my heart he is so ready to serve. Man, I lucked out into marrying into the best family ever! All of the Todd’s are so amazing and could not have asked for a better second family!
