This post is for my sweetheart. He was very excited tonight when his LA Lakers won the NBA Finals tonight. Of course, Kobe Bryant was named MVP . I like the Lakers, just not a big fan of Kobe.

Now, on to baseball,

GO DODGERS!

Chocolate, Trains, Cemetary and our day!

I know the title of this post sounds like a weird combination, but that's what our day consisted of. We went with our friends, April, Luke and Megan.

First stop was Mrs. Cavanaugh's chocolate factory tour . It was fun, but the Sweet's Candy factory tour was better.


We then stopped and had lunch at The Front End Grill. The menu items are all named after car parts. Plus, we got to watch the trains go by as you ate. The kids thought that was way cool.



After lunch, April told me about her favorite memory with her Grandparents was smashing pennies on the railroad tracks. So we decided to do this with the kids. We made sure they understood that only the grown ups could go out on the tracks.


The kids cheer with every train passing by.


The engineers waved and one even got out and came across the street to talk to them and then blew the horn for them.

Adam and Luke

We then drove up to the Salt Lake City Cememtary to see if we could find some of the Prophets graves. All but 3 prohets are buried in this cemetary. Fortunatly, we were able to find a few.


President Hinkley is the only Prophet the kids knew so we were excited to find this one.


The view from the cemetary looks over the valley. It is very pretty.


Today, was Trevor and my 1st Anniversery. He had made plans for his Mom to come and watch the kids while we went out. Unforutatly, April's vehicle broke down on our way back and so things got push back a little. It all worked out though. April's husband Keith came to her rescue. Trevor and his Linda drove down and picked me up. Linda took the kids, and Trevor and I went to dinner. He took me to Benihana's. It was very nice. Thank you Sweetheart. I love you!

Mini Family Vacation

Our good friends Brenda and Ken Armstrong were celebrating their marriage this past weekend in Durango Colorado, so we decided to take this opportunity to go and see them and have a little family vacation. We drove to Moab on Thursday night and stayed with my folks. Then headed for Colorado on Friday.



Of course, we had to stop by the Hole N' the Rock on the way.


There are a lot of eccentric items there. There were several signs that said "Big Foot Sighting ->" This is what we discovered after following the signs.
They had lots of old Motel signs.
Lots of sculptures.

They have a petting zoo and lots of other fun things. Something you just have to see for yourself.

We finally made it to Colorado! This was a first for both Adam & Jacqueline. Friday night we camped in a place called "Junction Creek". It was a pretty area.

Saturday morning we got up and went for a hike/walk overlooking the Amimas River and Valley below.
The views were beautiful.


There were lots of pretty flowers.

This is the one Adam picked for me. (I had to giggle a little)

Saturday night was Brenda and Ken's party. Here they are cutting their cake. They were actually married in January and waited for the summer to have their celebration!

Sunday, after going to church we headed back to Moab. We stopped in Monticello for a little bit to visit the grounds of the Temple. It is so pretty. I love this temple. This will always be one of my most favorite temples. The lilac were in bloom and the smell was so wonderful. Just heavenly!

When we got back to Moab, we went to Grandma Nornie's for Sunday dinner.

These were the socks Grandma had on today. She is so funny!


Aunt Linda(Grandma's Little Sister from Boise) was here visiting. It was really good to see her.

And so was Monica and Addi! Yeah! Jacqueline asked Addi who her Favorite Princess ever was and she said " Princess Mindee". She is so cute. I just love and miss her tons!


JB, Addi & Adam.


Moey, Dad, JB, Mom, Dustee, Linda, Adam & Addi hanging out in Grandma's back yard



Addi and Adam played really cute together.


Monday, We went out to Onion Creek and went riding. It was a lot of fun. The first time Adam got wet he started to cry but we were all laughing so hard he realized it wasn't so bad and laughed too.

All in all we had a very fun trip.

Sweet Candy Company

Today, we went to the Sweets Candy Factory. Adam and I went last summer but this was Jacqueline's first time.






They give you these cute little "Candy Maker" hats to wear. And then let you sample the candy throughout the Factory. At the end they give you, your own little packet of taffy. It's a fun trip. If your in the area its a great place to visit.

Day at the Libary and Bee's Game

Today, the kids and I went to the Library. Jacqueline has started reading the Harry Potter Series. She was just about to finish book one so we went to get her the next couple of books.

Adam is just starting to read. We check out 8 different books for him. He is doing really good sounding out words. He is starting to take turns reading from the scriptures at night! He thinks that is really cool!


Both of them enjoy reading, which is wonderful! Today was the summer kick-off at the Library so they had some fun things out.



Then off to the Bee's baseball game. It started to rain in the 2nd inning. That's why Jacqueline's face doesn't look like she is having a lot of fun. The wind was blowing to top it off too!




It was Military night. Trevor caught this Air Force Hat I have on. We only lasted till the bottom of the 6th inning before we were just to wet. We tried hard not to be fair weather fans, but we had to cut out early!
