Cousins at the MTC

Cousins John Reed and Jake Stowell reported to the MTC on the same day. John is going to the Mexico City East Mission and Jake to the Halifax Canada mission.
I had to take a picture of John and Jakes new shoes as they will see lots of miles put on them soon.

Cousins Justin, Jesse, Jake Stowell, John & Jared Reed will not be all together again for at least 7 years as they overlap each other serving on their missions.

Trip to Salt Lake City

We spent Tuesday in Salt Lake City. Mom and Jared went and did baptism and Brian and John went through a session.

John and Jared were getting restless on the drive up so they would see who could make the silliest face. I'm not sure who won as they both made pretty silly faces.

After Jared and I were done in the Temple, we got to walk around Temple Square together. All the Sister Missionaries thought that Jared was leaving on his mission, as he spent two days in a suit. He looked so handsome and grown up.

Close Your Eyes

Here is a song that John wrote with his friend Ben Davis. Enjoy! He reports to the MTC on Wednesday, August 6. Make sure to pause the music on the side.

Elder Reed

Since John is going to be leaving on his Mission in a few days, we decided to make him his own "mission blog". So we will try our best to keep it updated as he sends us stuff. So feel free to check on him whenever you want.

Traveling Family Style

This is how we traveled "family style" to the Bear Reunion. Just kidding! We were getting ready to go and all the kids piled into Brittany's suburban to watch a movie and we couldn't resist taking a picture!


In June, Jared hurt his foot by riding his 3-wheeler and running into a huge post sticking out of the ground. I'm going to have to have his tell the story in his own words because I wouldn't do it justice. Here are pictures of the next day. He was in a LOT of PAIN! Poor guy. He's doing a lot better now. He has to go to physical therapy though.
I don't know if you remember, but he had another accident with his 3-wheeler. Click here for the details.
