Somewhere Over the...Most Beautiful Rainbow Ever

Last night I ran to the store and Heather and I couldn't believe our eyes when we came out. We were starring at the most beautiful double rainbow. You could see all the way from one end to the other. (I think we even saw a pot of gold) We hurried home, got Kent and the camera, hurried back down the hill and took some pics. The rainbow was so beautiful and reminded me of all the good and simple things in life. It didn't even cost a cent.

Jamie's 18th Birthday

Jamie also had a birthday this week... His 18th big one. Like my friend Joyce said, "All that the 18th birthday means is that the parents can't get sued anymore for their kids' stupid choices." I'm glad we are over that hurdle. Actually, I hadn't even thought about it until she said that after his birthday. I'm glad I didn't have to stress over that thought for long. (Oh wait, there are still 2 more kids under 18. Yikes! Now I'm worried.) Jamie and Heather chose together where they wanted to go eat. It took all of about 5 seconds to decide. The Skybox at Gateway was the winner so Jamie could watch sports and Heather could go play all the games in the game room. Good Choice! Congratulations Jamie on this occasion. Now you can vote and get married without parent consent. Oh goody. More stress. We love you bunches and are so proud of all the "Good" choices you have made throughout the years. We are so thankful we haven't had to worry much about the serious things teenagers might do. Happy Birthday!

Heather's 7th Birthday

Heather had a fabulous 7th Birthday party at Classic. The girls loved the jungle and the water slides, but didn't like having to take time opening presents, eating pizza, cake, and ice cream sandwiches. Heather was in her glory as always. She got a new bike that actually fits her (a 20" for a 7 year old?). Now her knees don't go through her eyeballs when she is pedaling. We sure love you Heather and are so proud of all you do. We love how kind you are to everyone.

St. George

Heather and Isabelle (cousin) during a late night swim in St. George. They had so much fun jumping off the diving board a million times. We had such a great time in St. George. Even though it was hot it was a blast. You go shopping in the mornings and swimming the rest of the time. We also had to fit in a show at Tuacahn High for the girls since it was High School Musical.

July 4th

We had a great time up at Brighton for the 4th. We cooked breakfast with the Paulsens and watched the Brighton parade. It was the most perfect weather for July. So relaxing.
