Can you believe it? I am updating my blog!!

Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein
It has been a long time! The last time I posted was after one of Robbie's first football games.  His team lost only three games, two during regular play and then their final playoff game.  They came in second in his age group.  This fall has been a busy one.  James and I, with the help of my sisters, hosted a big Halloween party.  James and I went to West Yellowstone to celebrate 22 years of marriage.  We had a great time and Yellowstone is one of our favorite places.  This last weekend we took Robbie to New Mexico.  James was consulting a friend on some marketing ideas for his business and Robbie and I went along for the ride.  We stayed in a beautiful place but it was off season and there wasn't much to do.  We did stop at Mesa Verde National Park and Four Corners on the way home. Here are some picture updates as well. 

I could of reached out of the window and touched this bison if I wanted to.  I didn't!

We saw a ton of swans and geese!

Robbie's favorite part of the whole trip.  We definitely will go back!

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Even though the weather is hot and summer still lingers, football season in our small town has begun.  Robbie is playing tackle football this year.  It will be a new experience for him.  He has enjoyed it so far.  He really loves his equipment.  The day we got it he wore it around the house all evening.  I know there are some of you who may be disappointed by the Payson green but he is proud as can be.  Can't wait to see his first game!

Happy 18th Birthday!

On Wednesday it was McKenzie's 18th birthday!  We celebrated with my parents, Anna, Nate, and Claire in Park City!  I didn't bring my camera but here are a few pictures of McKenzie through the years.

Our weather has been funny this summer!  We started out in June, cold and wet, with some February-like temperatures. Now July has been hot and humid with many thunder and lightning storms.  Friday night James and I went for a walk shortly after one of the storms.  Here is what we saw!

Spring Break 2011

Robbie, Kenzie, Kati and I went with my friend Ilauna and her kids, Spencer and Mekinzey to Oceanside, CA.  We stayed near the beach and enjoyed the ocean.  Robbie went nonstop and was exhausted each night.  We went to the San Luis Rey Mission, Old Town San Diego, The Farmer's Market, Belmont Park, and La Jolla Cove to see the tide pools.  We saw seals, pelicans, dolphins and surfers.  We walked a half marathon a day at least back and forth to the beach, the pier and other places.  The  weather was on the cool side but still perfect.  We had a great time!  Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip.

Morp 2011-McKenzie

April Fools on April 3rd

So as many of you know, Sunday morning we woke up to eight inches of snow!  For two days before it was sevenity degrees and then Mother Nature played a cruel trick.  We decided that instead of complaining we would embrace it and took a ride up Skyline Drive in Fairview Canyon.  Here are some pictures of that!
