Guess this thing is still here. (BTW my boys are a lot older now than they were in that pict.)

I just want to give a big shout-out to all you that keep your blogs current... I don't know how you do it but I'm glad that you do.

Let's see so far this summer we have been to the beach twice, disneyland for what we thought was our last time (looks like the stucki's might drag us back in) we've had cousins from Indiana and cousins from Oklahoma visit. Inbetween all this excitement we have done a whole lot of nothing but video game playing. (that's the boys I don't play video games) oh yeah and we spent the 4th in Kanab it was way cool I highly recomend it if you want to spend the fourth in a small town. The fireworks booming of the red cliffs were pretty cool.

summer vacation

First day of summer vacation for the three oldest starts today. (well really last friday but we were at the beach) it's 11:30 and Brennen is still in bed... Dustin and Caden came down at about 10:30 and decided they would have a bowl of icecream for breakfast. Gotta Love Summer!!!

about the beach... Caden stayed home because of an important baseball game- whatever- the other three boys all got burnt. Brennen refused to put sunscreen on his face, Dustin got the end of the bottle and his back looks like a leopard and dillon I had to chase down, I'm sure all lifeguard binoculars were on us, so he had some spots that weren't protected. (apparently the sunscreen is cold) Dillon has been wearing a bed sheet since we got home on friday. (except for church and at school today) TOGA! TOGA!

do you know this guy?

My sister Nan and I were sure we did. So after being introduced to him we (ok it was mostly if not solely Nan) tried to rack our brains as to who he was and how we knew him. Ricks... USU... we just couldn't put our finger on it. Nan even went and met his parents trying to figure it out. Turns out he was Hyrum in the Joseph Smith story and Alma in the Living Scriptures. He also was in Les Mis on Broadway as Jean Valjean and Phantom in Europe. Yes we are nerds but after we found out just how we knew him we had to get a picture..... this time with us in it.

If you look really close he has a tear in his eye. I think we may be his first Stalkers! He's either so happy it brought him to tears or scared to death. (or the lady that was talking with him before us told him a sad story)
I totally wanted to go up to him and say come on you couldn't have just said Alma or Hyrum instead of letting us make fools of ourselves?!
In case your wondering his name is Dallyn Vail Bayles. He has a cd out but I didn't buy it. I probably should have.

happy birthday to one "green" mom

It was my mom's birthday yesterday. When Dillon came home from school he said mom guess what today is? I said- Grandma's birthday and he responded with- cool it's also earth day.

What a coincidence my mom was saving the planet before Al Gore even thought about how to make a butt-load of money off of it. My mom was recycling by loading the trunk of her car up with newspaper and plastic and driving down to the library to drop it off. We grew up reusing and recycling. However, I have to say that I'm a little lazy and don't do my part but if my mom's in town you know she's pulling cardboard out of my garbage and recycling it for me.

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Easter Message

no pain no gain?!?!?!

K- I just had a birthday and I'll admit I grew up in the 80's. No one exercised unless they were a jock (which I wasn't) or they danced (which my lack of cordination prohibited- I tried out for drill team, it was pathetic)

This is what exercise meant to me.....

Well my lack of exercise has been showing as I've attempted to do a body sculpting class at the church gym. I almost cried today....I'm pathetic....apparently my core is weak as are my arms. No Nan I'm not joining curves.
