Summer Fun Part II

Maddy got her first time in a pool and LOVED it. She was so relaxed in it, we were amazed!She had her first time at a water park for Grandpa Moser's Birthday!
We spent the Fourth of July in Logandale with the Moser Family, this is my favorite. I love having the fourth there. It's a total blast!
t!In August we got the chance to go and visit Krissy and Ryan in Layton and just enjoy a weekend of no plans and a lot of fun. Clint, Michelle and the kids were there too. Thanks Krissy and Ryan for such a great getaway! Josh also started grad school at the end of August at UNLV, It was a sad but very exciting day! (Sad for me, GREAT for him) This was him on his first day of school. Good Luck this year honey, I love you!
We had a great summer and were sad to see it go but we are very excited for this upcoming year.
So we had a FANTASTIC summer. It started out with Josh graduating UNLV with a Bachelor in Fine Arts emphasis in Architecture. I am so proud of him. He has worked so hard the last 4 or 5 years and it was a touching moment to watch him receive his diploma. Thank you so much to all our family who could attend. All of Josh's family (parents and siblings) made it and I cannot tell you how much that meant to him. He didn't know until after the graduation that they all did and he was really touched. After the graduation we had a get together at a park in Green Valley where we had lots of desserts, water balloon games wich turned into a water ballon fight and everything else that is fun to do at a park. That night I took Josh to a concert in town, David Foster and Friends, which was absolutely phenomenal. It consisted of probably 10 or more music artists performing their most fabulous music. WE LOVED IT!

The next thing in our summer fun was a long awaited trip to Cottonwood,AZ for the Anderson Family Reunion. We had so much fun and it was so hard to leave. We spent a long weekend there filled withreally good food and a lot of really good fun. Thankyou to all the aunts and uncles and cousins who made it a great reunion with so many great memories!

Next step in our summer journey was for Josh to perform in The Wizard of Oz which he had also been working on since March. The play was put on by the Helping Hands Foundation in Las Vegas. It is a charity group that helps to support the senior citizens in our valley. Everyone who performs in the play is a volunteer. They must try out and then if they are cast they start practices for a summer showing that lasts 2 weeks, or ten performances, at the Summerlinb Library. The cast is to provide their own costumes and makeup and all proceeds go to the foundation. It is a really neat opportunity and a great event that Josh and his younger brother Jerry were able to be a part of this year. Josh was cast as the Tin Man and Jerry was cast as the Lion. We made so many friends and reunited with so many old friends. Thankyou for such great memories and mom and pops Moser, THANKYOU for all of your help on the costumes. They turned out amazing. (Josh and his dad made Josh's costume, it really turned out phenomenal)
