Family Time!!! Wish I had more!!!!

Little Humans or Big Humans it's still mind-boggling. But it sure is fun!!! Glad we had a fun weekend together--- minus all the comings and goings between--school---work---and church functions--- at least we got one dinner in together!!! I love Family Time!!!!
Only picture of Step and Bry!!!! Nice looking guys, even if I do say so myself!!!
These are mine!!!!!

We had a blast in Deer Valley, but the best was making smore's each night with homemade vanilla, cinnamon, peppermint or original marshmallows. My favorite was the vanilla. But we will never find Hot Chocolate as good as they make at the Montage!!!!! WOW!!!!!!

Life and Vacation with Grandchildren couldn't be sweeter!!! Especially with these two!!!
Didn't get much time with Daniel and Step, but I'll take whatever minutes I can get.
Cisero's on Friday night was great and Daniel made it just in time.

Nothing better than a Sunday walk through the mountains with the cutest little ones on Earth.
What a great Weekend. Smiles for me........

Just a note---- Mark spoke in Church today up at the University Stake where he is serving. I did all the normal Sunday stuff--- Attended meetings, made dinner (a good one) for my family, studied the lessons, and enjoyed the yard. But when I got up on Sunday Morning and walked our to the kitchen I encountered-------

this mess!!! I've been looking at it all week and wondering when I was going to get to it!!! I got up Sunday Morning early (5:00 A.M.), that's actually when I usually wake up. I just thought, "it has to be done now". So I tackled it. And as usual, it didn't take that long. Also as usual, it was fun thinking about the memories that accompany all the stuff!!!

Young and Old

Well I would say we are not old!! But we are older than the Hawaiian picture (sun in the eyes) that was taken in the summer of 1982. The (older of us) other picture was taken in May of 2011. I think we did pretty well. But the best picture is of the whole family. Taken this summer up at Park City resort. We spent 4 days at the St. Regis in Deer Valley. It was Heavenly!!!

Fun Week!!!

Sunday we were up in Midway, finishing up our fun time at Swiss Days. The twins came up for dinner and we had a great time. Swiss Days will be a different blog. We spent most of the day with Meg and Thayne. It was relaxing and fun.

We had a hot dog bar at the BBQ. Lot's of salads. Highly successful!!!
We had a fun BBQ at our home on Monday night we invited both our families and it turned out great. My pictures are stolen from Megs blog since I didn't take any.
Tuesday, we put together an outing to Mary Poppins at the last minute. We ate at Cafe Molise, and then walked over to the Capital theater. We loved the production in New York and it was a lot of fun here as well. The three of us could have fun anytime anywhere however.

Thursday night we had a shower for Randi Olsen. It was a lot of fun and the girls were adorable.

Friday Britt and I went to the Utah State Fair. We had a blast and stayed for 4 hours. The girls loved the animals, and riding the Merry-go-round. We were the only ones there so the guy let it run and run and run!!!

To top the week off, Adam ran in the Greek Festival 5k. He won of course with the time of 16.20. his goal was to come in under 17 minutes. He was 2 minutes ahead of the next guy. Any way it was a beautiful morning and Jin and I had a lot of fun waiting the full 16 minutes for him to finish.
