Teaser Post

We have had a very low key, but fun summer. We had the wonderful experience of watching our children participate in events that they loved! Dallin's baseball team had a great season and ended up getting 6th in the state. There were many highs and lows, but I loved every minute! Emily had her theatrical debut in not one, but 2 plays and they were a week apart! She was in her element up on that stage. It definitely warmed my heart to see them find their niche. It was a lot of time, but I wouldn't change a thing! 

Due to the baseball and theatrical commitments, we did not pack a bag until our camping trip on August 9th! We have been gone pretty much ever since! Jeff's family came into town for 6 days and it was wonderful being with all of them. We rented a house on the beach and had a great time all together. We were only missing one of Jeff's siblings, so we had 33 people in one house (I think that's right.) Jeff and his family left the beach on Sunday, and I was lucky enough to be joined at the coast by my dear friend, Ranell and her kids and we stayed at her beach condo for the next 4 days. It was heaven for me to be at the beach for a glorious 8 days and I couldn't have asked for better weather! Here are some pics and there will be more to come! 

 Emily was Cleo the Cat in the Cinderella play. 
 Dallin played pitcher and shortstop and lives and breathes baseball!
 Dallin's coach and team were awesome! What a great season! Go Dirtbags!
 Dallin with his loyal fans!
 Emily's favorite part was singing modern songs up on stage, like Rolling in the Deep, by Adele!
 This is her second play, Love's True Tale, and it is a musical written by our talented friend, Alicia Moore. It was performed on our city's outdoor stage and we loved it!
 All of the adults in Jeff's family on our couch! :-) 
 Bryce loves to tube!
 Dallin ended up getting first place in his grade in this fun run!
 Bryce ran his little heart out!
 Kristyn, Rylan and Mialee joined Jeff and Rob for an early morning ski run! Jeff had to show his brother our awesome skiing river. :-)
 Spent one day at the beach with a good friend of Jeff's at an amazing house!

 Ella and Emily adopted this dog while we were camping!
Gotta love camping!

Whew! That's it for now, but I have a lot more pics to upload! Thanks for hanging in and seeing my post about Guacamole for so long. :-)

Holy Guacamole!

I interrupt my blogging break to bring this announcement! I can now get guacamole (REAL guamole, not processed crud!) in single servings. The hardest part will be limiting myself to one a day.

Simple Guacamole
That's it, folks. Carry on. More blogging later.
