Jury Duty

Ada County Courthouse in Boise

I had jury duty this week. Usually I get dismissed so I wasn't too worried until I called the night before and was told that I had to report. When I arrived they took the whole room of people before the judge and attorneys and put you on the spot by asking specific questions. There were 30 people and only 6 chosen, so I knew that I was off the hook...until I heard these words" Juror #1 Melissa Campbell" Suck! This was a two day trial... that was about a vehicle hitting a bicyclist. As nice as it was to have two days away from the kids, it was just as exhausting!

In the end it was a great experience, but hopefully I will not have it for a long time.

All Girls Fiesta

Last nightwe had an All Girls Fiesta for Relief Society- Meaning girls of all ages were invited so Bailey could come to. Since I am 2nd counselor in RS and over the "weeknight meetings" I was in charge of putting this event on. It turned out great with over 125 people, great food, swimming, photos, and tons of fun! It was my first big dinner and I'm really relieved to get it over with.

Here's Bailey with her bowl of cheese

Freedom Festival

We were able to visit Utah this year for the 4th. Trent had time off work, so we thought "why not" and headed down. This trip we mostly hung out with family since our schedule was pretty full, but we managed to do quite a bit. Our first stop was temple square. I had not been there in about 5 years so it was time to visit...and Bailey enjoyed seeing the temple and all the pretty fountains and pools!

We then had his grandparents Campbells 70th wedding anniversary! Yep, 70 years and still going strong.

The cake had all their children and grandchildrens names- not sure if there was room for all the great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren they have!~

There's Trents name

Later on that evening, Trent's sister Sondra and her kids stayed for a few fireworks and we had a great time- Trents loves that aerial fireworks are now legal in Utah!

The next day my friend Gina from California happened to be in Utah also, so I got to see her brand new adorable twin baby girls!

Then for the 4th we headed to Provo for the freedom parade that was has amazing floats and even the giant cartoon balloons. My favorite(besides all the missionaries from the MTC) were the BYU sure brought back a lot of great memories being there.

And ended a perfect holiday with a BBQ and fireworks with trent's huge family!

Bailey loved playing with all her cousins and will miss them until we visit again!

God and Country Festival

They have a God and country festival here in Idaho. It is to celebrate the country and our religious freedom. They have it about a week before the 4th of July, and they have bands and music to listen to, and a fireworks show afterwards. A group of friends joined us to hang out for the evening. It's funny because it doesn't get dark here until 10:30, so the fireworks didn't even start until about 11. It was a late night for us, but we had a great time hanging out with friends.

Trent and our friend Kyle

Bailey had a blast playingall night with her friends(She is in the middle) and she loved the fireworks! As we were tucking her into bed that she she said "mom, I had an amazing time tonight) She definitely made my night when she said that,
