My very first memory of Summer: I was ten years old when Summer was born. We went to the hospital to see her and we got to be in the nurses room as they did her post-birth testing/cleaning stuff. I remember them doing a test on her in which they took her itty bitty hand and folded it backwards and forward so that it completely touched her arm. I was weirded out!! Older people can not do that. But I remember the nurse telling me that is what babies are supposed to do and that it was good. 19 years later and I am still amazed by Summer's talents and skills!!
Surprise Summer! We came to crash your birthday!!!Although she later confessed that she heard lots of children in Krista's apartment as she was coming up the stairs...it was nice that she still gave a surprised face for us! We crashed the YSA of BYU having some good Sunday dinner. When we left Eric said,"Was it more awkward for the family or the single college students?" We decided the students! They were all nice and tolerant though. (And yes, that's totally Brenda and Ryan on the top right corner). We made sure Ram was at his cutest for Summer. They're bonded afterall.
Yes, that is Elise's pile of tissue from her heart-break that happened just the day before. When the girls asked her why she was sad and she told them she just broke up with her boyfriend Viana was quick to respond that she wouldn't have a boyfriend until she was 49 and get married when she was 100 and Brooke was not going to have a boyfriend (she claims) until she is 4292 (said: forty-two ninety-two).
We had fun with Sum and Kris, but Summer said her best birthday present was CharlyAnn learning to say "CHEESE!" for the camera. I'm pretty sure it's now everyone's favorite present!What a ham! (sorry for some chewed food shots...but when she says cheese it's all out!)We're so glad Summer lives close enough for us to make Sunday afternoon visits to her on her birthday!!!
