Happy B-Day Babe!!!

Today is my best friend in the whole wide worlds birthday, Happy Birthday Bryce!!! My dear husband of seven and a half years is now 29, ahhhhhh. It is so weird to think that we are getting that old, not that he his, I keep telling him he looks like he's still 22, and he does. The lady at great clips that cut his hair actually asked him which high school he went too, as if. Since his birthday fell on a Saturday, he went golfing of course,(he would have went Saturday or not). Him and my dad took on my cousin Paul and one of his friends and of course my dad and the birthday boy took them down. After that we went to eat at Rodizio's, Bryce's favorite of course because of his mission to Brasil. My parents and the Wolsey's joined us for the birthday dinner. I had sort of arranged for the family to all come over to our house around seven and play games, guitar hero and eat some ice cream cake, but needless to say we didn't get home from eating until around 8:30 and all the family had gone home, sorry again. :( However the Wolsey's made it so that our party wasn't such a bust, thanks guys. We got Bryce a Mt. Bike for his birthday a couple of weeks ago, we've already been out on a few rides, it's been fun. Well honey, bald, fat, grey, or wrinkled, none of which you are, I will love you just the same. Happy Birthday!!!!

another weekend away

Wow, it really feels like we have been wrapping up summer. We havn't spent a weekend at home the last 3 weeks thanks to camping and now St.George. St. George was still a little to hot for me, 95 degrees, but none the less it was still fun. It was just Bryce, me and of course Abbie. We ate out a lot and did a little shopping, and of course we went golfing. This golf course is so pretty, I don't think my pictures do it justice, nor do they with me, go figure. Anyway here are a few pics of the weekend.

Nelson Camping Trip

I got to go camping 2 weeks in a row! I know for many of you your thinking, "and she's excited about that?" And yes I was. I love camping. There is just something about getting away,away. No cell phone service, no computers, so that means no work and I have to say, I like the fact that it's normal to not bathe for 4 days in a row, gross I know. If I could just clean the private parts and my stinky feet, I'd be good to go for quite awhile. Every year in June, as far back as when my grandpa was a little boy, we've had the tradition of going up to Browne Lake in the Uintah's for our family reunions, we love it. So we decided to get one more end of the year camping trip in and went up to Browne Lake. Unfortunately the only ones that could attend were my parents and us, but it was a lot of fun. Maybe next time sisters:( Mom got sick the first day we were there, throwing up and such, we won't go into details, but she was a trooper, as soon as she could walk she was back up and joining the party. We went down to the Flaming Gorge Lodge to eat one night, and on our way home we saw a BLACK BEAR!!!! Can you believe it, it was so cool, we were all so excited it was like this huge adrenaline rush, you really don't see those bears up there all that often so it was really neat to see, I'm just glad I had my camera. We did a lot of fishing which is always fun, and then one of the days Bryce and my dad went on a hike up to one of the lakes to fish and brought us home some really good dinner for that night. We played a lot of card games of course. Once again, these trips just go way to fast for me, but there is always next year right? Love ya mom and dad and thanks for the fun trip and we missed you Kel,Jen,Kendell,Cameron,and Jamie, here are a few pics so that you can feel like you were there.

Stevenson Camping Trip

I love camping!!! Usually over Labor Day weekend we go camping with the Stevenson family. This year we went up to the Uintah's, Lake Lyman, which is always nice because it's the Layton Stake camp, and they have church up at the lodge, I know it would be disrespectful to do this at "normal church", but I really enjoy going to church in camping clothes, how often do you get to do that? We left on Friday afternoon and didn't come home until Tuesday afternoon, we had so much fun. I got to take my new bike that I got for my birthday, which came in handy, instead of riding the four-wheelers down to the bathroom, most of the time I rode my bike, good work out,(and I'm a little out of shape, it's the altitude right?). Of course we spent a lot of time eating thanks to Daren and Debbie. There camping grub is some of the best I've tasted, thank you so much for all the meals you guy's are the best!! The whole family was there, even Debbie's parents, grandma and grandpa Maxfield. They sure make it interesting, well mostly grandpa, he's a card. There's never a dull moment with them around, and I just love listening to all of there stories, man they've lived a long time. We did get some bad weather a couple of the days, as did the rest of Utah we heard. Lots and lots of rain, wind and don't forget the snow, it was a little chilly. The last morning we were there it was 22 degrees, and yes we were in a tent. One of the nights it rained the entire night and our rain fly kept puddling up the water, so we had to keep pushing it off so it wouldn't come inside our tent, we actually did stay warm, the worst part about the whole tent situation was that our insta bed had a small hole in it, big or small a hole is still a hole, but I guess fortunately it was a small one so it kept some air in where our heads and feet were. We spent almost one whole day playing games inside the trailer, solitaire, golf, oh and don't forget coloring. It's always nice to get together with your family and do something fun, and that it was. I'm glad there were no major injuries and nobody got frost bite.
Love ya Stevenson's, can't wait till next year!!
