The Prince and Princess of Summer

It's been a while since we have posted, and hopefully the reminder we received at church today, to keep records for our posterity, will call me to change my ways, and make better records of our life. We just finished watching "The Prince of Egypt" with the Merrill's, what a great movie (especially the music). It reminded me that no matter how small we may feel, God is always there for us, and can lead us to do great things.

Jeff and I had the opportunity to do home teaching today (visiting families from church to make friends and share a spiritual message) which always brings back great memories from my mission. I have been really motivated recently to choose activities that lead to personal growth, most of which are sparked by discussions at church. Like today, Linds gave a talk in church about family history, and gaining identity by learning from our ancestors. I want to find some great stories from my side of the family (not that it is a competition, but... you know, it always is). The other talks were on the same subject considering Pioneer Day (Utah holiday) was on Friday.

Lindsey also started working this week as a leasing agent, which is a blessing for our family! Now we are both working, which adds to the busyness of our lives, but at least we work about the same hours now.

Joe came to stay with us, and we totally forgot to get their keys from the office, which was conveniently closed for Pioneer Day, it ended up working out alright, and we had an awesome guest for a few days. We are excited for Joe and Stacie and their upcoming wedding! We all bonded with chocolate milk and pizza, quite a luxury.

Last Monday for family home evening we went with the Halls to play glow in the dark golf. We submitted the largest mountain in Provo, well not really, but we went up to Squaw Peak, and watched our glowing golf balls sail down the mountain. We are grateful for all the friends we have made since moving to our new apartment in Provo.

Other things we have done this summer, that we have failed to write about include:
- Getting married!
- Caribbean cruise
- Moved to Provo
- Travelled to Canada to take/write the MCAT
- canoeing the Provo river
- 4th of July BBQ and fireworks

Can't wait for more summer fun!

Love, the Heinzlmeirs
