Baseball and Date Night


Trevor had another Baseball game today! It turned into a muddy one. The game was stopped several times due to rain. They hung in there and pulled out the WIN!


WAY TO GO Cubs!


Jacqueline and Trevor has a Daddy -Daughter date to a Rocking 50's party for her Activity Days tonight also. They had a great time. They played fun games and had yummy treats. Jacqueline was the best Hula Hooper there!



So.......Adam was feeling left out, so we went on a date ourselves. We went out to dinner at Red Robin. Adam had wanted to go there for weeks. We told the server we were on a date and she was really cute with Adam about it. He actually got kinda embarrassed.

Provo Temple




I finally took the opportunity to go to the Provo Temple today. It was so peaceful.
Unfortunately with moving it took some time for my records to find their way to Sandy and to get arrange to get my interview for a recommend. I am so grateful for the opportunity to go to the temple. To leave all my worries at least for a couple hours and feel so close to my Heavenly Father. I have a firm testimony of the Temple.


I would love to visit as many Temples as possible.
I have attended the:

  • Monticello Temple (this is where I received my endowment)
  • Salt Lake Temple
  • Mount Timpanogus
  • Jordan River Temple
  • Logan Temple
  • Provo Temple

The Healing Field

Every year in Sandy, they do a healing field. In the past years there have been over 2000 flags for each person that died in 9/11. This year the theme was 1776. They has 1776 flags. It was a awesome sight. I would encourage everyone to go see this next year. This is the original Healing Field. There are now over 300 in the United States. This year they had one at the pentagon. It is quite touching. I admit, I had a little tear. I am so grateful to be a AMERICAN!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Game 3 & Baseball for Dad

Tonight was Adam's 3rd soccer game. He is getting better. I think I laughed most of the game though. He was like the comic relief of the game. Watch and see.

Trevor, also had a baseball game tonight so I
got to be a dual sports Mom tonight. There was a storm moving in and it was freezing at the baseball game.
Trevor has some really good hits.
Way to go sweetheart!

A little history



Today Adam & I went to the Sandy Museum. It was interesting. The building stands right across the street from trax. It was originally a ZCMI co-op. It was a great location because the railroad originally ran where trax is. The building then became the fire station, then a masonic lodge, and now the Museum. They took us on a little tour and showed us everything, They even showed a little slide show of Sandy in the early years.

Game 2




Today was Adam's second soccer game. He was a little
tired for some reason. There were times that he'd rather
had played with the baby then been out on the field. He is starting to get the hang of it though. After the game we went to McDonald's to have ice cream and of course to play.

Moab - Home Sweet Home

(This blog has been modified from it original version. Trevor's friend did not like his pictures up)

It is said "Home is where the Heart is." And there will always be a little part of my heart left in Moab. It was so good to go down for the weekend. It was wonderful to see my family. We met one of Trevor's old law school buddies - It was nice for Trev to get to spend some time with him. We had a fun, full weekend. Saturday was Trevor's Birthday
" Happy Birthday Sweetheart!"
We went out to Onion Creek to ride 4-wheelers. It was a blast. Trevor and his buddy were sopping wet! They really has a great time!
Trev's Buddy had been here as a child, but had forgotten how beautiful it was. Perhaps its that you don't appreciate it as much as a child. After playing on the ATVs for a good part of the day we drove up to Sandflats. Trevor took Alex on him first real 4x4 experience. We went on the trail "Hell's Revenge". It was great! It was very windy! There was a storm coming in. The video and photos don't really do it justice. You have to experience it.

After Hell's revenge we were ready for a shower and dinner. Trev's buddy went to a Motel and we went up town. Trevor bought a great pair of shoes with the money my parents had given him. After that we went to dinner at Sunset Grill. Grandma joined us. It was very nice. And yes we did Chocolate Moose Pie. It's such a treat! Mom baked Trevor a fabulous buttermilk pie so we had double the treat that night.

Sunday we went to church. The Hazlett family spoke about going to Nauvoo to be in the Joseph Smith pageant..Trev's buddy is not a member and all the talks were wonderful.


After church we took Trev's buddy to Arches.We went to North & South Windows and Turret Arch. There were a lot of people in the park. Mostly foreign speaking visitors.












We drove down to the view point of Delicate Arch. It was a little to long to hike for a Sunday.















We went out to Eye of the Whale Arch. This was exciting for me since I had never been to this one. It was great. Very isolated. It could be one of my new favorites.















We came back to Sandy on Monday. Stopping in Provo to celebrate Trevor's birthday with his family. We had a great dinner. It was a lot of fun! Thanks you David, Linda, Angela and Kids for celebrating with us! We love you!
