We started the day off with a baptism in Heber for Quincey. Then I took Mackenzie (my niece on Allen's side) horse back riding. Then I went to the BYU v. Colorado State football game with my sister and nephew's and friends. Busy, busy!!!
Today Karra, Cam, Jake and I went to Lagoon. Cam and I went on a few of the "scary" rides and then we met up with Jake and Karra. We were able to convince Jake to go on all of the rides. After going on them he decided they were the BEST THINGS EVER!!! This is my favorite picture of the night: Karra, Camaron & Jake
Allen and I took my sister Karra and her kids flying today. They're kind of our guinea kids.

As we were cruising the airport we stopped to check out the "Smoke Jumper". They were very nice and told us that what they do. When there is a fire in the mountains they fly over the fire and the firefighters jump out with all of their gear and start fighting. Isn't that brave and amazing? After the airport we came home and Allen had the boys mow the law. They did a great job, minus a few misshapes. Me in my cancer hat. Got to love it! Just two weeks shy of my two year anniversary of my surgery.
My Dad and Candy took us to the Freedom Awards Gala.
The award recipients were; Neil Holbrook who served as a "Frogman" now known as Navy Seals during World War II. Mona Heern, who lived in Iran until her father was executed for practicing their Baha'i religion. Sargent Merlin German, who while serving in the Marine's in Iraq received burns from a roadside bomb, where he received burns over 97% of his body. President Boyd K. Packer, who earnestly prayed for the opportunity to follow in his brother's footsteps as a pilot in World War II, promising God that in exchange he would dedicate his life to whatever purpose he might require of him.

I don't know WHERE she get's it from (Rachael & Jen)
When the sisters get together we get a little silly (Marri & Rachael v. Jen & Adrienne)
My dad is turning 70 this year and we couldn't think of anything to get him that he doesn't already have. So, while the kids were all in town we decided to dress up and take some silly pictures and make him a shirt and apron. When we would go on vacation as kids my dad would make shirts for us so he could tell that we were all there. So we decided to do the same.
