Summer in Southern Utah

When the typical temperature is 115 degrees, what do you do to still have some fun and keep the boys away from the X Box????

ANYTHING with Water!!!!! We went out to Quail Lake with a few friends I work with. We fished, swam, ate yummy snacks, did some rock jumping, and got some SuN!!! Porter came with us, and had a blast! He didn't dare jump off the rocks, but he was a riot out there in the Lake.

The next week, a few of my nephews came down from Salt Lake to stay with us for a week. So I took Calvin, Nick, Josh, Trevor, and Jake up to Kanarraville, Utah to climb the Falls. It was by far the funnest hike I have ever done in my life!!! 20 miles of sloshing up the river, climbing water falls, and watching all of these crazy teenagers have the time of their lives!!!!!!

We already have a plan to go back ASAP! It was amazing to get out of the intense heat of St. George, NO electronics, and just some plain old fashion FUN!

Fun in Salt Lake

Jake and I went to Salt Lake a couple of weeks ago while Trevor was at Scout Camp. We stayed with my Super Amazing Sister in Law Jamie and her cool family~ Our niece Courtney was in town from Tennessee for a month, so it was fun to get to hang out with her as well.
We went with all of the Crookston's we could round up, and went to Temple Square for a family outing, and enjoy the beauty there. We had sooo much fun, my only down side to ANY of it, was that Scott, Trevor, Kaylee, and Gus weren't with us. Maybe next time eh?

Road Trip!

I flew from Las Vegas to Atlanta, Georgia to bring all of our house holds goods, and Scotty's car out here. He and I had a great time hanging out together for 5 days in the U-haul driving across the country. We ate at lots of different places, did some shopping, and he even Suprised me by asking me to marry him again. AND, gave me a new ring to boot! I am one lucky girl~
