Not a fun place

Just got back from the laundromat. My new washer came yesterday, I did a little sigh of relief when they brought it through the door. Had my ten thousand loads sorted and ready to go. They hooked it up, plugged it in, turned it on, and out poured water all over my floor. *&%$##!! Yep I said that too. Defective part. Have to wait another week. Do I count this as # 5 or can I pretend this one never existed?

On a happier note.......

Had my First Jewelry party yesterday, it was awesome. Thanks to everyone who came and supported me. I really appreciate it. I had so much fun, can't wait to do it again. Kathy- thanks for hosting it for me, it was perfect.

After 8 days without a washer things are getting out of control.......

Thankfully, This baby is coming tomorrow. And not a minute too soon. This is my 4th, yes 4th washer.I didn't buy it because it was the most expensive or cheapest, I didn't buy it because it was the sales clerks recommendation, I didn't buy it because it's a famous brand. I bought it strictly on consumer reviews. Out of 117 reviews, 91% recommended it. I hope the people don't let me down. Otherwise I might go into the Guinness book of world record for the most washers purchased in a 14 year span.

Fun at the Lake

So bare with me cause there are lots of photos but had a hard time narrowing them down. I did leave out a lot!

Sacoya and Shay showing off the boat.

This year we let Sacoya bring a friend (Shaylee). They had a great time together and she was an angel. Shay, you can come with us anywhere.

Ridge playing in the sand, he never got in the water but loved the beach.

My little niece catching a lizard. She loves those things.

This is the famous water slide many of you have heard about. The boys make it every time we go down.

Sacoya trying it out.

Opps, she's gong backwards.

Here is Shay, so happy she loved it.

My sister-in-law Jodie with her son. See that lizard, yep he went flying in the air.

It's really not as scary as I made it look, it's just fun to scream on the way doooown!

Another little niece. She forgot to sit on the tube.

Willies brother Tom and his daughter. Tom likes to catch air

My nephew, I just love that little smile on his face.

Willie on a plateau. It may not appear that high, but if you look closely, ya pretty high up! He had to drill holes in the rock and put up a rope so he could get down.

Willies self portrait.

Most of you know I have been running like a crazy person and eating really well. I'm down 14 lbs. And I thought it was finally paying off. That was until I saw my thighs in this photo. I hate thighs, they are evil. I guess I'm going to have to start lifting weights again. Dangit.

Canyon and his cousin enjoying the tube of death, really it is.

Even though it wasn't very sunny, Sacoya still managed to get sunburned. Ouch.

The making of our sweet little mermaid Aspen.

Doesn't she look cute.

Oh and of course we had to add crush, I mean Canyon, the sea turtle.

We had a great time and can't wait to go back later this summer.

New nephew

I just got back from a week in Lake Powell (more on that later) and came home to this sweet gift from Heaven. My brother and his wife had there first baby. Oscar. I have yet to actually meet him, but Isn't he sweet. Funny thing, he was born on the same day as my niece Daphne, and my niece Victoria, and my sister-in-law Marin. Wonder what holiday is nine months earlier?

Running the river

Willie and Canyon ran the Muddy Creek this week, and Richard, (willies brother) took some video. It's kinda long but if you want a good laugh, watch the first minute where Mark, (willies friend) takes a spill. It made me laugh! Clink link below.
