On 7/28/09 it was about 5:00 when I get a phone call from Dan saying he will be late getting home. His excuse was he was waiting for the fire department. On his way home he seen smoke which was then followed by flames. He ran to the door and no one answered, so he saw a garden hose turned it on and began spraying trying to control a fire until the fire department could get there. To his surprise he was able to put out the flames and maintain the fire to just the one side of the house. He came home and his adrenalin was still a going so he had to take us back over to show us the house. I snapped a quick picture to share the experience of my man Dan the fireman. Oh and by the way I guess his tardiness from work will be excused, the picture is the proof. LOL


On Sunday August 2nd Dan and I will have been married for 13 years. I won't be home so I wanted to take a minute and wish him an early Happy Anniversary. Wow, has time went fast 13 years! Love ya Dan.


This years theme for the 24th of July kids parade was, Faith in a Brighter Future. Our primary asked our kids to dress up as an occupation that they want to be when they grow up. Dalton wants to be a professional baseball player, Georgette wanted to be a rodeo queen, and Whitney wanted to be Hannah Montana (Rock Star).

After the parade we went to dinner with the McCoy's and back to our house for fireworks. It was a fun evening with good food and friends. HAPPY 24TH UTAH!

June is GONE and July is on its way!!!!

Well wanted to take a moment to catch up on our busy, busy life! In June Whitney graduated Preschool. Georgette advanced to the 2nd grade and believe it or not in August I will have a 4th grader! What or more like where has time gone. I am proud of all three of my children for their academic accomplishments. I think they have finally forgiven me for signing them up for Math Camp (pretty much summer school). They continued on with school two hours a day Mon-Thur until the 1st of July. Yes, I know I am mean, but they survived. We are still doing reading Mondays at the school for another two weeks.

Dalton has been playing baseball and Georgette has continued with softball. We should be wrapping both them up this week. We signed Whitney up for fall soccer, she is excited. Dalton is still doing scouts every week. We have managed to squeeze play dates, birthday parties and swimming in throughout the summer as well.

We went to the Arts Festival, boy what an experience with 3 kiddos. We went to the Derby to support Lance. It was fun, wet and cold.

The end of June we went to Pineview with the Willis family. Now most of you know I am not a true water person. However, by the time we left Pineview I think I started growing fins! LOL

We made it home from Pineview in time for the 4th of July. We went to the parade with the Morgan's. Then this year we actually went to the park activities, we had banned that for the past 5 years (I think it will be banned in future years as well). We ended up coming home with another fish (making it 5 now) and an African Dwarf Frog. After the park we went to Michelle's for swimming and lunch. We couldn't take the heat any longer so we packed up and headed to Ophir for the rest of the weekend. We went 4-wheeler riding, bike riding and the boys even snuck off one morning for a horse ride. It was a great holiday weekend.

Oh, did I mention we bought a new truck somewhere between May and now. Crazy, I can not even keep up with all the activities, but we are sure enjoying the summer.
