Just a Little Update

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

I have just a little update for all of you. First of all, it was my Dad's birthday this past weekend, and I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY! Love you!
Secondly, my good friend and coworker Katie got married yesterday to her long-time BFF and sweetheart, Blake. We are so happy for them and so excited they were able to take this next step in thier lives.
And finally, while Joshy napped the Saturday afternoon away this weekend, I played around a bit in our photo program. I created a couple of pages, and then also modified one of our wedding pictures. Here is what I got: (and again, if you are a designer seeing this, and I'm using one of your QP's, thank you! Please comment so that I can credit you properly!)

Snowbird Days 2009 + Keoke

Monday, August 10, 2009

Josh’s family is fortunate enough to be able to use a timeshare condo up at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, which is only about 6 miles up the canyon. They get it for a whole week and so we were able to go up a couple different times. It was really fun and we were able to hang out with a bunch of Josh’s family. The first weekend we spent time with Heidi, Jordan, Tiffany, Colby, Darin, Chandra, Camille, and Josh’s parents Candy and Curtiss. We had some amazing enchiladas, took a quick walk/hike up the hillside, and played some games. Josh’s mom was even daring enough to go through an underground tunnel where a creek ran down the mountainside. The second weekend we had Kimberlee and Shaylee and we met up with Jamie, Spencer, Bailey, Jaxon, Heidi, Jordan, Candy, Curtiss, Lennie, Brenda, Darin, Chandra and Camille (Yeah there were LOTS of us… but that’s how we roll!!). We ate some yummy BBQ pulled chicken and beans and weenies that Jamie made for lunch (still salivating) and then headed to ride the tram. Candy, Curtiss, Lennie and Brenda decided to hike while we rode the tram. It took us about 45 mins to an hour… well, about 2 hours later we found out that they all hiked clear up to the top of the Peruvian lift, which is just a few hundred feet below where the tram stops at the top of the peak! They are pretty awesome to have done that!! HAHA. We also went swimming and Shaylee had a breakthrough! For the very first time, she floated around without holding on to anyone… and she LOVED it. Wouldn’t let us hold onto her hardly anymore once she discovered that her floaties really would make her float. J It was great! Well, we wrapped up the amazing day by making zucchini soufflĂ© and playing about ten rounds of Blokus (thanks Darin and Chandra!). With all the kids asleep and it being about 1:00am, those of us that were left (Jamie, Josh, Candy and I) decided we better sleep as well. The rest of the weekend wasn’t quite as eventful, Josh and I got our new bed set, we were able to get the girls a few more clothing items, and then we also got Keoke a new activity center. But I don’t think he knows what to do with Catnip… There are a bunch of pictures below, so until next time, love you all!
