Memorial Day Weekend

This year the kids did not want to go with us to do anything fun and great for the weekend of Memorial Day. They all wanted to go boating but the lakes water temps were all under 62*.
So....Taylor went to Delta stayed with his cousins... had a blast.. Nic stayed home and hung out with Chrissy and Mike. As for Ken and I...We took a trip to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Never have been to that side of the canyon before. What a awesome place to go. We had a fun fun time. Not often do we go anywhere with out kids or friends in tow. So it was a nice change and we really enjoyed each other.
Took a slow and fun trip to St George for the first day. stopped at all the little towns and just looked around. Found out that Nephi had a mill from long ago in the down town area and a river that flows under main street. Meadow we stopped to see the house Ken's mom was raised in. Beaver looked at the fun places to see and ate lunch there. Then continued on to Kolob canyon. I think it took us 6 hours to get to St G but that was OK. The next day we continued on to the Grand Canyon.
It seems like yesterday we were just married. I cannot believe how time flies. I am still amazed that it has been 27 years. Really we all know me and my bratty side..How does he do it??? Well I guess I should be glad he can do it. There has been allot of give and take in those years. Good times, hard times, and sad times. But all has been worth it.
We have so many memories...So much love, and a family that we have built together. I am not sure where we would be with out the love of our kids and grand kids. Sometimes on a Sunday afternoon I just look at everyone and think we made this mess how do I get out of it. I'm Just kidding :). I think we made this family and how blessed we are to have them close and always at our home to visit and laugh with. My kids do not travel far from us and they love home. It makes us proud to know that our kids love to be here and that they need us as much as we need them. Love is such a great thing, feeling, word, emotion, what have ya. It is what truly makes the world go around.

Summer Field Trips

I started a Field Trip Club last summer. It was such a great fun that we did another one this summer. We went on our first trip Thursday. The Field Trip was to Grotto Falls in Payson Canyon. What a fun time we had. It was just so great to get out of the house after such a freaky weathered Spring. Last week we had snow and this week it has been cloudy but warm. Hoping the Sun comes out next week.
Here are a few pics from our trip.
