Later that night we had a pretty good fireworks show of our own. This picture was actually taken a few nights before, but I included it cause it's funny. Look at Milo. He's just laying there so calmly like nothing's going on. For those of you who do not know, Milo LOVES fireworks. He turns into a puppy this time of year. He jumps over them and tries to bite the sparks and runs around. One of my favorite things about fireworks, is watching Milo. Sadly, Milo is slowing down in his old age (just turned 12) and he isn't quite so active, but the following pictures show him in a more typical reaction.
I also wanted to share a Dad Birthday moment with you. We arranged his birthday candles on his cake into a number "72". It took quite awhile for us to light them. The SECOND the final candle was lit, Dad leaned over and blew them right out! He didn't even wait for us to sing "Happy Birthday" to him or take a picture! It was so funny, but such a Dad thing to do! So we made him wait while we sang and took a picture with the burnt out candles. We love you Dad! Thanks for making us laugh!

Allison was blessed in our ward in Riverton on Sunday, May 24. She wore the same dress that her mother wore on her blessing day. She looked beautiful and was just as sweet as can be.
We enjoyed having Grandma and Grandpa Phister here from St. George, Utah, Emily, Rob, and Scout, Catherine and Booker from the Salt Lake area, and of course, Grandma and Grandpa Wright, and Matt and Bronwyn, who didn't have too far to travel. Haley, Marcus and Allison came from Rexburg, Idaho and we had a great weekend.
This is all of us in front of the Riverton Stake Center following the blessing.
Allison gave her dad some very cute smiles!
After Allison's blessing we went to Simonne's graduation ceremony at Riverton High School.
Monday night, we went to Svilar's in Hudson, Wyoming, for our "farewell" dinner with Simonne.

Simonne was asked by Kelby. He is a Senior and was the reigning Prom King from last year. We decided to do a dinner at our house for Simonne & Kelby and 2 other foreign exchange students.
Kelly and Zach at the "Grand March". Kelly spent days decorating for the dance. The gym was transformed into an amazing place. The decorations were great. Some parents commented that they'd never seen a prom decorated so nice. Good job, Kell.

Grandpa hasn't quite warmed up to the title, but sure loves little Allison.
Amy enjoyed every minute she got to spend with the Crook family. She stayed nine days after she was born to help Haley recover from her c-section and help. Being a grandma is amazing! It was really hard to leave, knowing that she will grow up a little before we can see her again. We are using a web-cam to help.
Proud parents, Haley and Marcus.
Allison in the hospital. One day old.
I love this picture of her. She looks like she's really looking at the camera.
Not a clue that she is going home! We love her little old man face!
