my brother-in-law, Rayson, got baptized today by his brother, Larry. and if you look at the program- that's right, my name is on it. Rayson asked me to give a talk on baptism. i was hesitant to accept at first. i believe it went well and i even looked up while speaking but only looked at Rayson. Tons of family and friends showed up to support him. the next day Rayson was confirmed in church.

Rayson and I weren't able to go camping, however, we were able to make it up for dinner one night. it was a fun little trip as well as a bit chilly. thanks for taking me up Rayson.

I went to Nephi for a picnic celebration for my Grandparents birthdays which are both in August. it was great to see them!- i see them even less now that they are living in Nephi. that night i went to the African Restaurant for dinner in Salt Lake before heading to the Broadway show of "The Lion King."

work adventure

Posted by Picasa

at work today we took some of the kids out on an outing up to Snowbird. we enjoyed a hike and going down the alpine slide. right when were leaving it started pouring and hailing. as my co-worker was pulling out, the vans 2 back wheels went over the edge- the picture doesn't show it good but it was maybe an 8 inch or more drop off. so there we are with it hailing and stuck. i took one of the kids jacket to go get help. by the end i was soaked to the bone. it was quite the fun little adventure.

Banana Mama

Posted by Picasa

it was my mamas birthday today! i made her banana cream pie (which i hope was good since i don't enjoy fruit pies) and gave her the dvd that i had planned since December. i grew up with my mom renting this movie in October for Halloween. now she can finally have her own copy and maybe she will let me borrow it.

Bye SeAtTlE

i bid farewell to my Washington Loveys!!!

Posted by Picasa

thanks for letting me come play D & T- i enjoyed picking out your clothes, doing your hair, having picnics, tucking you in at night, playing house, watching movies, painting your nails and toes- i just loved every minute of it! ps- thanks for sharing your mama.

i was having Callie pick me up from the airport and she was just supposed to meet me at the curb.

instead i walk out of security to see Rayson, Raylie, and Callie standing there holding a sign, flowers, and a balloon. embarrassing!
luckily Callie didn't remember to snap a picture while in the airport.
how cute and thoughtful are they though?!

comb camera

cute girls

tes goes around everywhere using anything to be her camera. adorable!!! i love her sound effects. and then dalias giddy excitement!

we sure had fun while mommy and daddy were gone.

bad trouble

tesila and dalia were both yelling and i mean yelling- "Ariel, you in bad trouble." but of course when i go to record it they won't do it anymore.

we love-love PiCnIcS!

it was bit windy, cool, cloudy, and rainy at the end but still fun. right after the swing picture was taken Tes face planted. Brit and i wondered why and if she got anything on camera. this picture shows exactly why Tes fell off- she wasn't holding on anymore.

- do you like Dalias pretty outfit- she picked it out herself! and may i add that i found her headband and gave it to Callie as a joke for Raylie. Callie ended up giving it to Brit and Dalia loves it. i personally think it is ugly.

what a fun bunch of Washington girls!!!

being a mom

Posted by Picasa

the main reason i went to Seattle was to watch my nieces while Britni and Brian went on a church outing for a few days. for the first day the weather was great and then rainy and a bit chilly for the rest. i don't take a lot of pictures anymore and rarely carry my camera so these are the only pics i took while they were away.

I've been to Seattle varies times so when i got into town Britni and her girls took me to some spots I'd never been to before.

we went to this great look out of the city with a fun playground for the girls. also, there is this random sweet troll underneath a freeway.

then a picnic at Gas Works Park (where they filmed the paint balloon fight in 10 things i hate about you) which also had another great view of Seattle.

leaving on a jet plane
