Star Mill

A couple of us got a private tour of the Star Mill antique store.
This is the candy shop.
It's wall to wall antiques (stuff).
We went upstairs into the silos and there were a ton of pidgins. Allen was getting attached from all sides. We had to be careful not to fall.


The Star Mill has a lot of character and history. I'd like to go back some time.
There were three floors and the basement. This place is huge.

7 Crazy things about me tag

Lindsey tagged me with a list of 7 crazy things about me. Here we go:
  1. I'm crazy in love with my husband.
  2. I think that if I go outside in the cold with wet hair that I'll get sick.
  3. At meals I usually eat all of one food item before moving onto the next and I don't eat all that's on my plate unless I'm Really hungry. And when I'm done I find myself pushing my plate away from me.
  4. I think it would be cool to be an EMT. (There's something about being there on the scene of an accident. )
  5. I want to do an Ironman some day.
  6. If I spend more than an hour straight cooking a meal, I loose my appetite for it and don't want to eat it. There's something about the smell that gets to me after a while.
  7. I can't STAND it when people pronounce words wrong like Mountain (Moun'n), to (ta), for (fur), ahhhhh the list goes on and on....and it drives me crazy when I catch myself doing it too.

Sun Valley with the Bushman's

Allen and I flew up to Sun Valley Idaho with Bret and Shauna for a few days. It is a beutiful little town. Flying in was definatly the way to go. The view from the air was breath taking. The aspen trees were poping with color.
While we were there we played a little tennis.

The ghost clip I've been telling you about

video
This is one of my favorite clips from that night.

Here's a link to it bigger. http://www.vimeo.com/2043565

Look for the little orb (light) on the right side. It goes up and then pauses and then goes toward the stick and disappears. Can you see it? None of us could see the light with our own eyes, it only showed up on the night-vision camera.

Lake Powell Trip Day 5 (Last day)

The last day we decided to sleep in and watched a dumb movie on t.v. The weather was supposed to be colder and overcast so we weren't planning on skiing. When Allen and I went outside to pack up the car, it was sunny and warm. We decided we were going to hit the lake one last time. I was so excited because I hadn't gone skiing yet this trip. The water was perfect. After Natalie and I went we convinced Allen and Lindsey to go as well, even though they weren't wearing their swim suits, they made due with what they had. They both said it was worth it.
It was a very fun trip! Lake Powell is beautiful this time of year.....

Lake Powell Trip Day 4

The sand hill
We played a lot on the sand hill but I didn't add any of the other pictures because this was the best one.
I realized that I gotten sunburned. Ouch!

Lake Powell Trip Day 3 (Race day)

Big race day! (Triathlon)
Allen did the Olympic distance.
Natalie and I did the Sprint distance.
Chad and Lindsey volunteered.
(Lindsey sold her bike a week before the race)
Swim

Run

Natalie took first in her age group and would have taken first (women) over all (Sprint distance) if she wouldn't have gone the extra mile (literally) on the run.
After the race we went back on the lake.
Here's Natalie going a little crazy.
Chad killed a fish.
He tried to bring it back to life but wasn't successful so they gave it a proper burial.
We found a great slot canyon that we hiked up.
Natalie, Lindsey, Chad, Noreen & Allen.
In some of these slot canyons the boat would get really close to the walls of the canyon and we would act as buffers so the boat wouldn't hit.
Natalie & Noreen

We found a great canyon that the boat couldn't fit up so we blew up the tube and paddled to the end.
Lindsey, Chad, Noreen & Allen
Then the girls (Lindsey, Natalie & Noreen) went tubing. Oh my gosh! It was so much fun. We caught some good air and had some good wrecks.

Lake Powell Trip Day 1

We had a late start and some delays in Beaver but we eventually made it to Lake Powell.
Boats don't need tires anyway.

Spooky House

Tonight a group of friends went to Chloe's Salon in American Fork. We went on a ghost hunt. Here are the highlights:
I had a circuit testing light (we kept calling it the "stick") that I had and a couple of guys had video cameras. We went down in the cellar and started poking around. As we were asking questions I slowly moved the stick around. And then it turned on. No joke. Just for a second and not very bright but it turned on. It was exciting. We didn't get it on tape but it happened to me so I know it happened. Then we moved up to the main floor. One of the guys asked if there was anyone there if they would show us a sign. Right then his camera turned off. The battery was fully charged and had plenty of tape left but it just turned off. Then the another friend with another camera kept rolling as they asked if "they" would touch the stick and make it light up. As we were filming you could see an orb approach me and pause and then come towards the stick and then it disappeared. After that we went up to the attic where there have been sightings of a woman standing in the window. As we were filming we could see what we think were orbs. They kept going between two beams. As we would scan the room the main place that we would see activity was right between these two beams.
Orbs-dust-coincidence...who knows. I had a great time and enjoyed watching the video over an over.
We are heading down to Lake Powell for a Triathlon in the morning. When I get back I'll post the video clip. Then you can decide for yourself what it is we saw.

First snow of the season

I received a call this morning from Lindsey telling me it was snowing.
Sure enough, it's snowing.
I love our mums.
I got snow down my pants as I was making a snow angel.
WOW that's cold!
Here's the finished product.

Back in the saddle again

I went up to Jen's house in Heber to go riding with her.
We had an exciting ride. Jen rode Sampson and I rode Stormy.
Stormy was being a little stinker. She was skittish and jumpy. She tried to buck me off a couple of times.
On the ride back down Jen and I swapped horses. Sampson was a doll.
Stormy gave Jen a hard time as we went by some other horses.
I gave the camera to Sera and she shot a couple of pictures.
You can't really see the horse but the sunset is beautiful.
Adri, Quincey and I.
(It was crazy hair day at school today.)
