Millie is one brave girl. She went to EFY in Provo all by herself, she didn't know anyone in her group or even her roommate. She went with a great attitude and ended up making great friends and finding out that she is a pretty incredible person herself! We love our Millie!! Her feet did give her problems but with no pride she gladly rode in a wheelchair and held her head high. In fact, her wheelchair was used by many friends and she just laughed and let them have their fun. Millie knows the gospel is true and her testimony grew from this wonderful experience. Thank you to all the wonderful friends who pushed her, carried her on their backs, and just showed her love during the hard times.

More Summer Fun for the Carter Family

Nana Liz and Papa Vaughn are always so kind and invite our family to go to Ririe Resevoir (I can't spell such a hard word ha ha). We had a super fun time water skiing, tubing, and eating!

Livy lives life this summer

roasting marshmallows after kidnapping Olivia on her birthday!
What a birthday bouquet!
Lauren is the gothic girl Eric the retired rich and beautiful teacher, Olivia as the new yuppie in the neighborhood and the huge gossip, Millie (poor Mil) she was Olivia's daughter and just a high school student, Ashlyn was the librarian and a total germ freak (she was my favorite because she was so funny!) and Jasmine as the town Mayor. Don't you think they look awesome!

some of the guests at the dinner party
Here we have the Murder Mystery Group. These kids are amazing, they all dressed up way good, and they acted just like their characters. It was a super fun party!
the goofy girls laughing and just having tons of fun
Olivia laughing even her face makes you want to laugh, it is the best!
who knows what they are doing just being silly but having fun!
Since graduation Olivia and her friends have played none stop. They do everything! And all the time they are having fun you can always hear Olivia's laugh! It is the best! It comes from her belly and hearing it just makes you laugh! She has great friends and they are having so much fun because after this summer their lives will never be the same.
Some girls are going to Utah State in Utah, some girls to BYU Provo, some girls and guys BYU Idaho, some boys leaving on their missions, so this is the summer to remember!
They have been boating, bridge jumping, bike riding, murder mystery party, movies, laughing, pulling birthday kidnappings, and playing at the park. I have probably left things out but I am so happy that Olivia has great friends and they have pure clean fun!!! :)

This just makes you laugh!!

We do Have Fun but I never remember to post :(

This is Millie and Ashlynn playing Quitich. Girls Camp was "Harry Potter" We are SEEKERS of light!
two really scary professors
The Owl!!!
Junior Leaders looking there best.
Girls camp was good and different this year. The ward went to RockCreek Camp on Wednesday Evening. The rest of the girls came up Thursday morning. They had one fun filled day and one night. Then they were beginning their day on Friday and got kicked out of camp. Girls camp can only be held Monday through Friday, then it is for Family reunions. So the poor girls packed up their gear headed to Ashton, then headed for home. Friday night they had the"feast" at Sis Brewer's house spent the night in her basement and then finished with testimonies on Sunday at church. It wasn't your Normal girls camp, but they seemed to have fun anyway!
