Landscape Pictures from Utah

These next pictures were all taken in Utah. The first 4 are pictures of a storm coming in. They were taken outside of my mom's house. I was playing around with the different programs on the camera. Here are some of the shots I got.

These next pictures were also taken at my mom's house. I love the way they turned out.

The next 3 pictures were taken as the sun was going down over the Great Salt Lake.
It was an amazing site.

My Birthday

I just wanted to say
ThAnK-yOu !!!
to all of you for calling or stopping by to wish me a
Happy Birthday. Also for all the cards and e-mails, too.
I means so much to me that I have such awesome
family and friends!
I had a wonderful Birthday despite being sick. We just hung out at home. Adam took care of everything and waited on me all day. Here is what we did...
By the time I got out of bed it was 8 am. The girls were busting at the seems to give me my gifts. They both made me a homemade Birthday card (with help from Grandma Carol). They told grandma that they needed money to put inside of my Birthday card( I guess they think that all Birthday cards need to have money). Adam and the girls also gave me a new iPod, docking station, and car converter so I can listen to it through the speakers of the van if I wish to.
My mom and Ken gave me Chester the Rooster and a country barrel with yellow flowers which is already in it's place on the ledge in my family room. Max and Carol gave me a new set of Scriptures. They are green leather with my name on them. My friend Tonya gave me a Bath and Body Works gift card. Thank-You, Thank-You, Thank-You !!!
Next, Adam made us all breakfast/brunch. We had Denver Omlette's with sourdough toast (my favorite breakfast) The afternoon was spent relaxing, watching movies, taking naps, and putting together puzzles with McKenzie and Morgan.
Adam also made us dinner. We had BBQ Chicken, baked potatoes, and green salad.
For dessert Adam made me one of my favorite cakes. It is a white cake, with strawberry jello drizzled over it, heavy whipping cream frosting with fresh strawberries and strawberry glaze on top. Max and Carol came over and had cake with us.
At the end of the night there was a knock on the door. It was Cathy and Kris Driggs. They dropped by to wish me a Happy Birthday and Cathy had made me a plate of cookies.
I had a great Birthday!

Summer Trip to Utah

I took the girls to Utah the last 2 weeks of July. We had a great time visiting with family. We all got together for a family BBQ, played with the cousins, watched Landon's baseball team win an All Star game, and visited with grandparents. It was great to be with our family again. We had a Awesome time and we are looking forward to our next trip back home again. Hopefully next time we will get to see more of all of our good friends.

Here are some of the things we did!!!!

The first slide show is of McKenzie, Morgan, Kailee & Brooklyn playing in the swimming pool at Grandma's house. They spent alot of time playing and getting each other wet. Uncle Cody, Grandpa Ken and Grandma Norm even joined in on the fun.

Chicken, Chicken... Who knows how to make a Chicken

The missionaries were over a few months ago for dinner. After we ate they shared a lesson with us and also showed the girls how to make a chicken out of a bath towel. McKenzie (who remembers everything) showed all the cousins the secret. Here they all are with their very own CHICKENS !!!!!

Kailee & Sienna
Next ....
Here is another slide of misc. pictures from our trip.....
