Shaver Lave

We enjoyed 4 days of cooler weather at Shaver Lake with the Taylor's. The boy's had a wonderful time(they love the outdoors). Julia did pretty well on the trip too. We look forward to going again next year.


Where Is Home?

We went "home" to Rexburg to visit my family last week. The kids had a great time getting wet at the water park & fishing with Papa. Mike and I enjoyed a 10pm showing of Harry Potter and attended my HS reunion. But what we always love the most about being there is the easy going pace, the kind people and the beautiful sunsets. So, I was suprised that on our trip home , as Apple Valley came into view, for the first time it felt like home. We have lived here for 2 years now and I always frown at the dry desert view. But, I guess if you live somewere long enough, it becomes home & you see a new beauty in it. It was good to go "home" to Rexburg for a visit, but it felt great to really come home.

Our Hyrum With Papa



Happy 4th of July!!

Here are Ethan, Hyrum & Julia ready for a fun filled 4th of July. Dad spent the day on patrol in his fire engine keeping people safe. I took the kids to Grandma & Grandpa's for swimming, BBQ and fireworks. It was a great day!
