Highlights with Arthur - Week 3

To start out the 3rd week we went down to Provo for Justin's mission president's homecoming.
After the meeting there was a big reunion party lunch at his estate

Elder James Wulfenstein and Justin were comps in the MTC

the whole family with President and Sister Roney
(except Jared who didn't want to go to Zions and stayed at the Byers)

From Provo we drove down to St George so we could go to Zions and hike the narrows with Arthur

We love this hike and I don't think we'll ever get tired of doing it!

 Next up was Bastille day, which we learned this year, the French do not refer to it as Bastille day, but as the 14th of July.  Just like we say the 4th of July.

My awesome friend, Michelle, hosts a "14th of July" party every year at her house and this year she invited all the french students and their host families (about 1/2 could come)

It worked out perfectly that our ward had scheduled the scouts high adventure activity while Arthur was staying with us.  His parents were happy for him to go with them.  They went to Hinckley Ranch and had a great time.

The boys were able to shoot guns, go mountain boarding, mtn biking, climbing and repelling.  On the way home they stopped at Provo River Falls to show Arthur where we love to camp and hike.
