Favorite Childhood Activity

Easton, Treyson, Ridge, Trey, & Brandon

Well I don't know about you, but my favorite thing to do as a child was slide down the stairs in a sleeping bag.   And we seem to have the perfect stairs for this activity.  The kids and some friends (Sorry Mindy) played for hours and had a blast.  They found that if they stuffed the sleeping bag with a couple layers of the foam mats they would go much faster.  I was laughing so hard watching them.  It brought back so many memories.  

Oh to be a child again:)

Childrens Theater (Alice in Wonderland)

 Well the boys have been working so hard learning their lines and songs for their play.  And all that hard work paid off. It was such a great performance and I was so proud of them.  Trey had so much fun, and you know Easton he was all smiles.  They played many parts throughout the play, but their main characters were: Trey: Mad Hater & Easton: The King of Hearts.  I wish I could have recorded the whole thing because it was so cute, but my camcorder ran out of tape and batteries.  You can tell from the pictures it was quite a performance and a lot of time and talent went into it.  A special thanks to Jennifer for putting this whole thing together and making it a great experience for my boys and family.  My two little owns are still running around the house saying parts from the play.  Had someone not known we had been practicing Alice in Wonderland for months they might wonder what we are teaching our kids because Ridge runs around the house saying "off with your head".  Enjoy the pictures!

Awesome Jennifer!!!

Trey's Track & Field Day

Well Parowan had their Track and Field Day and this is the first year Trey was able to compete.  So he was so excited.  He made it to the finals in 50 Meter, 100 Meter, High Jump, and the Relay Race.  He placed 2nd in all the events, except his relay team placed 3rd.  I was glad I was able to take the afternoon off work to go watch him.  Great Job Trey!!!

Handing off to Remington.

Nice Running Bud!

Baseball Season Once Again

 Well once again Baseball is in full swing (at least on days it doesn't snow).  They have had to cancel at least 4 games so far due to the snow and I keep hoping all the white stuff will stay gone until next fall, but so far no luck.  Trey is on Jense Electric and was glad Jim is sponsoring his team this year.  Easton is on M&D and I am his coach.  Then I am playing on a coed softball team with Colby in Cedar and it has been a lot of fun.  I was really nervous wondering if I could play with my shoulder or not.  I hurt it about 8-9 mths ago and have been working it every since trying to get it back so I could play.  It has been a long time coming and I was starting to worry if I was going to end up with surgery, but it seems to be holding its own so far.  Every year Parowan has a big opening ceremony where they introduce the kids and coaches.  Everyone gets free hot-dogs,drinks, and chips and then they have the first game of the season.  This year I helped in the concession stands.  Looking forward to a fun season!!!

Sunny San Francisco

 Well I went to San Francisco in April and saw Wicked which I loved.  While we were there seeing that performance they had a little trouble with the mic and we ended up getting free tickets to come back. So this time I talked Jim into coming with me.  It was soooooo good to spend some time alone with Jim.  I hate leaving the kids and it is such a pain to get babysitters and arrange everything, but we were past due for a trip with just the us.  

Our first stop was to see "Wicked".  Don't tell anyone, but Jim even liked it.  If you have not seen it you are missing out.  It is a great show.


The next morning we headed to Alcatraz. 

Row of cells.

The Lunch Room. Part of the reason Alcatraz was closed was due to cost of up keep.

Whats left of the Wardens House.

Jim in the isolation cell.

The rooms were tiny just enough room for a bed to drop down, toilet, and sink.

That night we headed to Peter Pan.  I was excited to see this because it was 3-D.  I have never seen anything like that before.  The 3-D was really cool, but I was really disappointed in Tinker Bell.

The next morning we walked down to the Golden Gate Bridge.  The following pictures are from our walk and at the bridge.

After we spent sometime at the Golden Gate Bridge we headed to the Science Museum.  I love watching the jelly fish and other than the Museum was really crowded it was a lot of fun.

Of course a trip to San Francisco would not be complete without eating at Bubba Gumps.  We had to eat here twice we loved it so much!!!!

A special thanks to all those who helped with the kids and made this trip possible.
