Duh...Camera... Idiot!

Today my family had the most fun and I, of course, did not have camera in hand to record it. So you get a boring update until I can figure out how to get the grainy, hard-to-see pictures off of my cell phone. (Why do they even have cameras on cell phones when you can barely even make out the pictures anyway?) Anyhoo...
We went and visited one of my school friends, and then went for a gourmet lunch at where else? Carls Jr. Okay, so not the best food, but my kids had fun playing on the playland. Andrew is even getting old enough that he was able to climb half-way up the slide and slide down again.
Next we headed to Nunn's park and the kids waded in Bridal Veil falls. McKayla's exact words were, "Wow mom, this park is so beautiful". And she was right, it was a nicely kept park and the falls are, as always, georgeous. We definitely want to head up there again with our swimsuits and a picnic lunch.
After that, we decided to go bowling at FatCats in Provo. I don't know if it was the strobe lights or what, but I bowled my best game ever... a whopping 95. I also only had 3 gutter balls for two games, which, if you ask my sisters, is very awesome for me. I am the champion of gutter balls. Ty beat everyone and was very proud, Micky got a glow necklace and was very proud, and Andy got to drive an arcade race car the whole time and that made him very proud. We had a great time together just hanging out as a family.
When we got home, our very best neighbors in the entire world (everyone should have these kind of neighbors) invited us over for a barbeque, and since we love them we couldn't say no. We were having a good old time when someone said, "Hey, look at that." So I turned to see Andy just having a good old time fully clothed in their kiddy pool (thank goodness he didn't drown). He was just smiling and splashing away (once again a Kodak moment with no Kodak to mark the occasion). So we took him home and changed his clothes, and we weren't back 5 minutes before he grabbed a full cup of pop and dumped it all over himself. Oh well, brown matched that outfit, right? At this point we had had a very long day, but our neighbors invited the kids to go watch the fireworks and they were off again. Whew... what a day. But if every day could be this fun filled life would be great. You gotta appreciate the good times! However, next time...I better have my camera!

Family Reunion Time

This past Saturday was my side of the family's reunion, The Moore Family Reunion. We started with a picnic in Liberty Park, and then my cousins had made up an Amazing Race that took us to some important church places around Salt Lake City. They split us into teams and sent us on our way. First, we went to this really cool Canyons of Utah water area where Ty and Mick couldn't resist getting wet. After, we went to President Hinckley's grave site and several others at the Salt Lake City cemetary. Then we were off to the Brigham Young Memorial park which was quite pretty. Next we had to go check out the rooftop garden at Salt Lake City Library and lastly back to Liberty Park for a picture by Tracy Aviary. We had our pictures taken in that exact spot when I was just a little kid, so it was fun to take one with the cousins in that same spot again. It was a really fun day, and we found many places we want to go back and explore some more. What a great idea for introducing people to a new area. We had a BLAST!

Twilight Obsession

Okay, so I am terribly embarassed to admit that I am in love with a vampire. I have developed this new obsession with the twilight books and read the first three books in one week. Now I have preordered and am waiting in desperation for the 4th and final installment, Breaking Dawn. I also can't wait for the movie to come out in December and have already made plans with my niece and my sister to go see it. I'm even contemplating buying a "Bite Me...I love Edward Cullen" t-shirt. It is pure craziness I know, but I have to have something to fill up my summer with. I guess it is a good thing that school starts in a month and a half. 'SIGH'... Well I better go back to looking at pictures of some vampire actor who is half my age. What a whacko I am.:0)

I've Figured It Out!

So I've finally figured out this blogging thing (sort of). I'm actually proud of what it looks like now. Yeah Me! Check out some of my favorite pics along the edge. As I was going through them I wanted to write about every one, but alas, that would be a lot of blogging and I've got real life to worry about. Hope you enjoy my new blogging site. By the way, thanks Mindi and Teresa for all the help!

Check out my Slide Show!
