It's Raining!!!!!!
The sound of cars splashing on the wet roads.  The sound of raindrops hitting the rain gutter.  The sweet smell of rain.  Love it!
So you might be wondering why the excitement over rain. . . . it's been almost 40 days since it has rained.  We need it.
I am so glad I got the grass seed down yesterday.
Let the rain continue!

More Summer

I have also taken a trip to Salt Lake.  Carlye and I spent one day together and visited the Living Planet Aquarium and Kennecott Copper Mine.  We had a great day!

Trip to Vegas

Boy, summer is sure going by fast.  I guess I've been so busy I haven't had time to blog. . .lol!
I started the summer with a trip to Vegas.  While there we took a drive up to Mount Charleston.  Driving up the canyon sure isn't the same as driving up the canyons in Utah.  No lush green trees surrounding the road.

Davis and his birthday present.

Picnic area closed so we had lunch on the side of the road.

Caleb and Davis chasing after a deer.

Loren had fun one day with my iPad.

If you ask the kids where they have been or going they may just answer to the Alley or the Desert.
Desert . . . empty lot next to their home.

Alley . . . road behind their home.
I had a great time.
