The Call

My little brother Hunter got his mission call yesterday to the Boston Massachusetts Mission (Spanish speaking). We were a little surprised to hear that he goes into the MTC on August 5th since we had a family vacation planned to start on August 6th. Although we're sad he'll miss the trip, we're excited for his mission call and know he'll have an awesome 2 years. Congrats Hunter!

Dad's Day

For Father's Day we offered to host Sunday dinner at our place this week. We had a fun time bbqing and spending time with family. I've been wanting to try out these cute Jello watermelon slices for a while now so I was super excited to finally try them out. If only fruit always tasted like Jello!

Since my little brother Hunter will be getting his mission call this week, we held a "Mission Draft" where we all selected the mission we think he'll get called to. The draft consisted of us all passing around a sheet until all 350 missions had been selected. We're expecting the call to come on Thursday or Friday so it will be exciting to see where he'll spend the next two years (and who won the draft). It was definitely a fun way to celebrate Father's day. Happy Father's Day dad McFarlane & Poulsen - we're so thankful for all you do!

Summer Grillin'

As a housewarming gift, Ryan's parents were nice enough to give us a brand new grill. In an effort to "break it in," we had some friends over for a summer bbq and homemade ice cream. Thanks again Dan and Mary - we love it!

Ryan had a fun time getting to play with baby Aubry



The last couple weeks we've spent our evenings painting the remaining rooms of the house. It's been A LOT of work but it's been fun seeing it all come together. Maybe one day we'll actually get it all done - yeah, right! ;-)


All Grown Up

A couple of weeks ago, Ryan and I were able to attend my little brother's high school graduation. It was rainy and humid, but it was fun getting to see him celebrate the end of his high school years.

Although I didn't get a chance to take any pictures, I was able bum a picture off my mom.
I still can't believe that my little brother is all grown up!
