All the Nieces and Nephews...and a 1/2 marathon..

About a month ago we were able to get all the nieces and nephews together for the first time, since little Henry Joe was born. Look at how darn cute my nieces and nephews are...Gotta love em!!!
That same weekend Jana, Ang, Shelbs, and Kylee all ran the SLC 1/2 marathon..They all tore it up and did awesome!!

T and I took the babes swimming...Here is Payton holding lightweight T!!

For a moment I didn't see Kyah in the pool or hot tub and panicked, but when I saw her this is what I saw...Crazy girl!!
Payton your nuts...just like you dad!! P...mouth is quite holey these days.

Ky and Gracie ready to get out of the darn pool!!
This would be how my sister Kylee goes to the pool...for the love..is she related to me!!

I love me some Moab!!!

Last week I was able to go to Arches National Park with my Cousins Ben and Angie and their family!! We camped out at the local KOA campground...so we did have running water, showers, electricity!! We weren't completely roughing it, but we were still in tents. I have been to Arches once before, but I was only there for a few hours. It all can't be done in a few hours..you definitely need a few days.

I think my favorite arch was Partition Arch..I am in the little arch above!! Sand Dune arch is another fav..it is secluded and there really is sand all around it, it was a nice cool place to hang, got us out of the hot sun.

Thanks to Ben and Angie I was able to conquer a few fears, heights and being a little claustrophobic. I couldn't let little Tiago show me up..he is only 2 and tore up all the Hikes. I didn't panic too much, but I did try to look back to see how high I was and lost my balance and Ben told me to fall to the right...because the drop wasn't as deep as the left. I never tried to look back again. We went on a hike called the Fiery Furnace it is a guided tour and it is so worth it. I was a very nervous girl..I had to squeeze my hot little bod through some crevices and climb up and down some serious rocks. Ayzha was my hiking buddy, she was impressive..nothing phased her..and she did it all on her own. She was determined!! If you go to Arches I suggest you do this hike!!

Angie and I in one of the north or south window arches!!

Me, Tiago, and Azyha hiding out...in a little cave..Cute fuller family...Little Reyn was such a trooper...(she is in the backpack)Delicate arch in one of my Dad's favs so I had to picture it. Can you believe I climbed that thing...I couldn't!!! It is pretty high up!!! So worth it when you get to the top!! This is Ben, Ang and fam going down the mountain..as Tiago would say!! This is Skull Arch in the Fiery Furnace!! Ben and Angie are in the back..this is one of the obstacles in the Fiery Furnace. Notice..T is on Ang's back...This is surprise Arch..you walk under it and the guide tells you to look up and Surprise there is an arch!!

This is one of the higher points on the hike..over looking arches!!


Thanks Ben and Ang for the Fun Trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harry Potter Jelly Beans Stike Again...

Once again we bought the Harry Potter Jelly Beans...We had to introduce them to T and Linds when they visited Utah! For those of you who don't know what they are...they are Jelly beans that have disgusting taste..the tricky part is that you might get a normal tasting one, but you won't know until you try it. For example..black could either be Licorice or Skunk Spray..Let me tell you they do taste like what they say. This time around Gage wanted to be a part of it. He was eating them like there was no tomorrow!! If you ever need some cheap entertainment, get a box of these!!

Video one is of T and G..waiting to see if G got the moldy cheese jelly bean!!

Video two is of Kylee, T, Linds, and Ang...all have black ones they are either Licorice or Skunk Spray

Video three is G trying to get Kyah to eat a green one that is either Juicy Pear or Booger..she doesn't fall for it...but G decides to eat it!!
