Jason had his tent set up in the living room when I got home from Spanish Fork on Saturday cause he was letting it dry out from his camp out. We decided to keep it up and have an indoor camping experience. Well, here it is Monday night and we are still camping out. It's not everyday you have a tent in your living room...you've got to take advantage of stuff like that. This will be our last night roughing it,(we have not been home much during the day and have been getting home late every night and have not bothered taking it down), but it has been really fun. Jason is nice to indulge my weirdness.
Loved it! Just as good, maybe better the second time around. I love Jacob Black and his happiness. He is just laid back and so easy going. I could totally be friends with him. SPOILER ALERT!!! As much as I hate losing Edward in this book(he's just not around for most of it) I think Jacob makes up for it. I am still totally routing for Edward though!

If you want to play:
b. Using ONLY the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker. (I didn't know how to do this so I just copied all my pictures in. if anybody wants to teach me how, that would be great!)
You can't tell, but this is when he was laughing his face off in the car, after the movie...laughing tears. It was very funny.
Owen is so stinking cute in his bike helmet. He loves riding in his bike trailer. He thinks it is hilarious when you put your face against the plastic windows.
We rode up to mom and dad's on Sunday. It was a 25 minute ride.
#22 play badminton...done
Me and Jason took on Dad and Monica. We totally won. It was a pretty exciting match!(thanks to Melissa for the sweet action shot)
Owen loves the trampoline. He likes to have someone chase him all around on it. He makes me a little nervous, but he laughs his head off, so how can I resist?!?
Jason and Owen - Father's Day 2008
My dad is definitley a hero of mine. Hardest worker I know. He has always had more than one job and yet he was always at every event my sisters and I participated in. He was always willing to play with us even after working for 12 hours straight. We kinda had him wrapped around our fingers, and still do! I know that he loves me so much and he has proven that over my lifetime that he would do anything for me. I am so greatful to have that kind of unconditional love and support. Tucking me and Melissa in at night, sleeping outside in the tent, shooting hoops in the driveway, throwing the football, swimming at Days Inn, pink mint walks...the list of memories and lessons learned from my dad is
endless. I love you Dad!
Dad and Me Father's - Day 2008
Some other Father's I definitely want to recognize are:
LaMont: Having a father in-law as welcoming and loving as he is makes being married that much easier. I am so greatful for the example he was and still is to Jason. I know that Jason looks up to him so much and I am so glad, because he is a great man. His wife and his kids are the most important things in his life. You can tell that by the way he treats them.
My brother in-laws Dave, Rich, Steve and John: For taking such good care of my sisters and my nieces and nephews. You guys are all great examples and you are all great dad's(and will be great dad's someday). I love having each one of you in our family!
Great summer read! I finished this one last Thursday and I really enjoyed it. It was easy to get into and hard to put down. It was one that I would've liked to read on the houseboat in Lake Powell or at Bear Lake. It's set mainly on a little island off of New York. It's a story of relationships. Two sisters, Alice and Riley, who spend every summer on Fire Island with thier best friend Paul. They grow up and the story becomes entwined with love, guilt, self-punishment, passions, secrets, tragedy and loyalty. There is alot to say about a book that makes you think about the relationships in your own lives and helps you understand them a bit better. The loyalty and love between Alice and Riley is so strong that it's impossible to be completely honest with eachother. Neither one wants to wrong the other. The bonds of sisterhood are more improtant than any other, even if it is irrational, you do what you have to do to protect that.
Jason, Owen, Brayden and I walked down to Summerfest and got our first shaved ice of the summer. Brayden put a little of every flavor in his and Jas chose black cherry for me, Owen and himself to share. The computer didn't get all my pictures downloaded, but we all ate shaved ice and enjoyed every bite.
#18 run through the sprinklers...DONE
It wasn't exactly running through the sprinklers, but it was Owen's first experience with a sprinker so I thought it should count. He walked into the neighbors yard and I didn't think he would keep walking, but sure enough, he loved it. He knelt right down and splashed the water on the sidewalk and would stand up and get the shivers(it wasn't cold, but the sun was going down). It was cute. He got pretty wet and would have stayed there a lot longer than I let him i'm sure.
These two list items will definitley be repeats several times this summer.
