THE FOCUS OF OUR SUMMER Welcoming the Newest Member of the Family
Summer is underway, and I’m really enjoying the warmer weather and chance to be outside more. We just had our patient appreciation party, and it was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who came out for it! It was a fun night watching The Incredibles 2 at the iMax theater. All this is being eclipsed right now, though, by the arrival of a very special someone — my first grandchild. My eldest daughter, Josie, and her husband had their first baby this summer, and we joyously welcomed her into our family. It’s been a really exciting event. My wife and I have been spending as much time with them as we can and soaking up every minute of it. When I went to see my granddaughter for the first time, it was a different feeling than I’ve ever felt before, different even than when I met my own children for the first time.

It was amazing to watch this little baby girl and imagine all the potential she has and all that she can be — it’s like nothing else, being a grandparent. Josie and her husband are doing really well; both are healthy and taking to their responsibilities as new parents. It’s fun to watch them take on this role, giving up some of their freedom to care for their baby and see that she grows up healthy and strong.

My boys and I like to fish, camp, explore, and just enjoy our time away from the rest of the world to be in nature. I’m grateful to live in such a beautiful place as Idaho. I hope you’re enjoying your summer as much as we are. If you haven’t had time for a camping trip yet, it’s not too late to do it. Enjoy your summer!
They live in Utah, so we aren’t as near to each other as we’d all like. This means we’ll just have to make plenty of visits.
Even with all the excitement, we are making time to get outdoors. This month, my boys and I are heading to the Frank Church Wilderness for a three-day backpacking trip. Last year, we made this trek from a different direction; this time, we’re coming in from the west and crossing the middle fork of the Salmon, then heading up into the wilderness. There’s a bridge that we’ll cross
