American Idol Fan

Tonight I should be at the Delta Center, but I'm not. For those of you who don't know and aren't big geeks like myself, tonight is the American Idol concert here in Salt Lake. I know I'm such a nerd, but I really wanted to go. I even convinced Seth that it would be something fun to do since we actually watched the whole season. But sadly we are not there tonight and the reason comes down to one thing...Price. I looked up tickets and they were $67! Are you kidding me? For American Idol!! That's just crazy!To be fair I can't remember the last time I went to a concert, so I guess I'm not familiar with pricing. That's probably cheap. I know Scott just went to the Police and paid triple that so I should stop complaining. But that just seemed like way too much. So although I thought I was a big fan, I guess I'm not. But Gina and Blake you rock!! (That's what my sign would have said).

Happy Pioneer Day

We didn't start off doing much on this holiday. We actually stayed in bed until 11:30am! We were still catching up from traveling home the night before. (I have to admit part of the reason I stayed in bed so long was so I could watch the Days of 47 parade on TV. I'm not die hard enough to actually go and camp out for a good spot, but I do love to watch it). Eventually we did get all of the laundry done and had a clean house. For that, we rewarded ourselves with a fun time that night with friends. Bella wasn't too into the sparklers but she did love the fire works show our friend Dan put on and the rootbeer floats Marianne made. What a fun night.

Bryce Canyon

We just got back from a family vacation with the Brown's in Bryce Canyon. Bella had so much fun with her cousins. This was the first trip with all the grandkids and they all loved it. I think my favorite part was when I straped on the backpack and carried Bella. I know it wasn't a huge trip but after all I am 4 months pregnant and she does weigh 30lbs. As you can tell from my gloating I'm pretty proud of myself. I think Bella's favorite part was when her dad threw a big rock in the lake. She is his biggest cheerleader. She was very proud of him and told everyone what a good job he did. Seth tells me he just loved that we got to be with his family and hang out. We're looking forward to next years fun trip.

Weekend trip to Idaho

We just got back from a fun weekend trip to Idaho to see our grandparents. The kids had so much fun playing and being together and the adults loved it as well. Bella and Luke did what they do best; best friends one minute and crying the next. I think the drive home was my favorite though. All 4 kids asleep for 2 hours! I know Laura enjoyed that part too.

Single White Male

Last night was so much fun. We went to Scott's work to have a family party, with all the cousins and aunts and uncles. (Well, he did use us for photos in his new company catalog and didn't have to pay us. But he did provide pizza and drinks). His work is awesome. It would be the best place to have your wedding, work party or any other event. You'd have to see it to understand, but it's called Noah's and it's amazing. And seriously how cute is Scott? He's graduated from college, working on a Masters, owns his own home in Sugarhouse, makes good money, loves dogs, is great with kids, and one can't forget his sense of humor. What more would a woman want? I'm sure he wouldn't want me putting him out there like this, but I feel I have to. What kind of sister would I be if I didn't?
