I was talking to Ken today on his way home from work. (I think I talk to him more then his workers do each day) For some reason I feel the need to check in and chat.... allot! Anywhos. I was telling him that I am the happiest I have been in a long time. I just feel that all is right in the world. I really think it has to do with being OK with who I am. Happy with all the love and support I feel with my friends and family. I feel like no matter what the church is always the same. AND.... Life is what you make of it. (Thanks to Hannah Montana):) But it is really true. I want a happy, loving, and busy life so I make it that way.
On our Geo-cashing trip yesterday we had so much fun. Nick Searle joined us and finally someone that knew how to work our GPS. I knew a little, Shauna Van knew a little more, BUT Nick he knew allot. So we went all around town signing cashes and trading prizes. Ended up back at Shauna Van's at 4:30 pm. Everyone else left us and we kept going. Lexi made us snow cones when we arrived back to the house. It was awesome fun.
Shauna Van gave new meaning to Geo-cashing. We were at hunters Park and Shauna tripped on her way to help us find our next Geo-cash. Scraped up her arm as she slide down the hill a little bit. Scary moment for us all. Flip Flops and hiking someone times not such a good idea. But she Geo-crashed on our Geo-cashing trip. We decided it is called Geo-crashing if you fall during the hunt for the cash. All in All a fun day.
Last night Steve came over to get Ken to help him on his boat. Ken is the boat mechanic in the circle of friends. It makes him feel needed. It is a good thing for him. Anywho's....I ended up over at the Searle Compound to check on things when I was done running around.(because behind every great mechanic is a woman that thinks she knows more. jk) (I wish my family all lived on the same block or ward. it would be awesome.) Patti ended up down there to pick up Ellie. Brought us back Dp's it was awesome. Good things happen on the compound. :) Shauna and Bret were out cleaning their boat. So had a chit chat with friends while making sure Steve and Ken were on it. Had some good laughs. Ran for rags so that Bushman's did not have to leave the comfort of their boat while cleaning.:) jk Anywho's it was nice to spend the day with your kids and friends, then have your husband come home, and then finish the day up with service and friends. Oh and a good DP from Walkers.
That is what makes a great life.Church, service, family, and Friends. Those 4 items will give you more in life then....Money, cars, homes, or any material thing. All those items stay here when you die, but the others never change and are always there present in this life and the next. That is why I am so happy. I figured out true happiness and not material happiness. It is almost life changing.
A while back Patti gave me a picture all framed of her and I. We had a planning meeting for our field trips on my boat. The picture was taken then. I just wanted to share the picture and tell her thanks. I receive things from friends from time to time and it makes me happy too. Not the material thing but the fact that they are thinking of me and love me too. Shauna made me a calendar to keep track of each day of the week and what is going on. It is awesome. You write on it with dry expo markers. Lexi made me snow cones, all are service that was done for me. And I am thankful and honored to have such great friends. Thanks to all my friends for the service, friendship, and laughs I get to share with or receive from you. You all mean lots allot to me. Life is good! AND.......Lake Powell is just a week away and I am so excited to go........ I know this post is all over the board but had allot to say and my mind was jumping from one thing to the next.
and my blog is not posting pics right either. This is large???? I need some help from the Blogging Queen Julie.

We hiked to Upper Silver Lake on Monday night for a FHE. Awesome. The hike is long and up hill but the lake is well worth it once you get up there. The beauty of nature is amazing at the lake.
And...............Yesterday we floated the Siever River in Leamington Utah. It was cute to see all the city folks go to this small town. The river is lazy and it was perfect for the little kids. I personally had a blast. I love the water! A townsmen put a rope across the river and rock steps to get out. He also made a walk way with a gate and has solar lights on the path. Small town people can be so thoughtful. I really appreciate that his fellow took the time to do this. It makes floating the river so much better.And finally...........This is the Sticky Shoe that we go see our weekly movie at. It is cheap, sticky and fun. As you can see we are having a fun summer.
