Children's Discovery Garden

I cannot think of a better way to have spent the last day of official summer, before school started.... This is another well kept Utah county secret. It's such a beautiful place for a family outing!

School Days....

That looks like one excited 2nd Grader.....

A late sleeper and her bed head, such as the life of a princess....

I smell a mischievous 1st grader....

Cute, Sweet, Perfect Kids....

Ready to learn (and make a fashion statement with polka dot socks)....

And a mom who's happy to have such amazingly smart children....

Can't you just feel the anticipation?

It's off to School they go....

It Was A "HOOT" Of A Time!

Great night for burgers, foot long dogs, cracker jacks, sodas, chips, red vines, ice cream & some baseball. I think we ate ourselves to death!

How We Spent Our Saturday....

Mr. Ethan AKA Buddy of the Year and I awoke at the crack of dawn
(he was the only little minion I could arouse)
and helped officiate at the BYU track for the
Provo Masters Challenge.

It was a great day filled with exciting stuff. We watched a 70 year old run the 1500 Meters and someone in their 80's throw the discus!

It's fun to think about my glory days on the track and share those with my kids.
If you can't find me, I'll be running all over Provo spreading good cheer to the senior athletes in all the events this week.

Post It Notes.....

This is a note that Isaac left on Abby's door the other night.
It's her list of things to do for the next day.

1. Play Village
2. Watch a Movie
3. Play Games

Here is her reply:

If only I had known it was as easy as that all this time.
I think I'll be writing some "post its" of my own in the future.....

Road Trippin'

In the early years of our marriage, Justin and I used to take the drive up in Uintas once a year. We even got stuck and had a snowball fight in late June of 2000. The last time we did this gorgeous road trip Isaac was a baby....

LUCKY...we saw a moose just as we entered the park, he's running away from us here....

I think it's funny that Isaac chose to wear his "INDOOR PERSON" t-shirt for this trip.

Away We Go...to some beautiful country.

The trip had plenty of attitude, believe me....

We found the falls,

Where we explored,

got wet and muddy,

and had a yummy picnic prepared by yours truly.

After all these years, it still amazes me that we get to live in such a wondrous place....

We even learned to get water the old fashioned way.
