This past weekend Steve and I went on our first vacation without Parker. We went to Lake Powell with the Haltermans, family friends. We stayed on a houseboat and had our ski boat and jet skis that we brought up. We were there for 4 days and had a blast. We were lucky and didn't get sunburned at all, we only got really nice tans. This video is of Steve going off the slide on the back of the house boat, head first on his back.

Now that I have finished school and work I have found that I have time for crafts. I am going to hang these up in Parker`s room. I think they are very cute.

My sister Amanda made this drawing and I told her that I thought it looked a lot like Edward. So Amber we decided to be fair and put Jacob next to him just so we could compare. Ha ha ha.

Well I have been reading the Twilight books and I think they are just wonderful. On May 31st, my birthday, a new version came out of the third book (perfect timing). You can now buy the third book that has the fourth book's first chapter in it (if that makes sense). I got it for my birthday and yes... I read it that day. It also has iron on prints that say "Team Edward" or you can choose "Team Jacob". I am going to be using the "Team Edward" and if anyone wants the "Team Jacob" just let me know. So far I have found no one who whats it! If you have not read these books then you have no idea what I am talking about, but they are good. The ironic part is that the fourth book is released on Steve's birthday.

Utah Trip

We went to Utah this weekend for Garrett and Kylie`s wedding. We are so excited to have Kylie in our family. Everything was beautiful and went smoothly, which is exactly what every bride wants! The day after the wedding we were able to go to Lagoon, a water/amusement park, for my birthday. We had a lot of fun riding roller coasters and going swimming in the freezing cold water. Parker only made it through the first part of the day and was asleep for the water park. He was a trooper. Later we went to go visit my Grandmother and ate at her restaurant. The food was very good. It was nice to see her and my sister.
