Summer of Fun Begins, Ehh???

Amazing Anglo-Kanook Girl visits American-Anglo-Brazilian Boy Wonder
Monday Lisa Aldridge arrived for a visit. She was in our ward in Bristol England, then later moved with her family to Alberta Canada. With Joseph out of school it was a great chance to play. And they certainly have been busy.

Events have included shopping and Bison Burgers in Park City, X-Men Origins: Wolverine , Angels and Demons and Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration movies, and lots of other excitement (see below).

Neuroworx New Facility
Neuroworx just moved next door into their new space, where the Real Salt Lake soccer team had their offices. The new place is great. Joseph enjoyed working out in the new facility. He is loving his work with their foundation helping to raise funds for the new facility they are planning to build in the future. This is a great organization that is changing the lives of many individuals.

Bee's Game
Thursday night's Salt Lake Bees game was fantastic. The Bees hit a game-winning home run in the bottom of the night to defeat Omaha. The Bees also raised over $4000 for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. Joseph and Lisa went to the game with a crowd of friends including Laurie (Johnston) Jewkes and friend Shelly, Brad Burns and little Lincoln, Vince Baver, Stacey Chivers and husband Cortland and Dakota. It was a blast.

Treasure Island
Friday night at the Hale Centre Theatre Joseph and Lisa enjoyed Treasure Island. The shows at the Hale are always great, this was no exception.

Did all those pirates really come from Cornwall, ARRRRGH.

5K Run, Walk & Roll 2009
Brain Injury Association of Utah held their 5K Run, Walk & Roll 2009 on Saturday Morning at Liberty Park in Salt Lake. Lisa and Joseph got up early and joined in. Neither of them had ever participated in an organized 5K event, it was a great cause and a fun time.

2009 Living Traditions Festival
The annual Living Traditions Festival sponsored by the Salt Lake City Arts Council ( was this weekend Friday through Sunday. Joseph and Lisa along with Matt Smith and friend ejoyed the multi-cultural experience. Over the couple of days they tried the Basque, Bosnian, Pakistani, Thai, Laotian and Vietnamese food. They also enjoyed the dancing and handmade crafts (such as the carved watermelon in the photo, it's worth clicking on it to see it larger!).
