You know that feeling you get after you ride the wild mouse ride at Lagoon?

When you get off you're laughing and shaking at the same time? And it felt like it was a way fast ride, but it was a fun even tho it was a bit scary while it lasted?
Well, these months have just zoomed by like a fast ride. But I've had a good time riding!

 I haven't even looked at blogs for so long. I meant too but..................................

We took the camper out over Easter weekend, it was so cold and our SIL got sick and scared us all.
He ended up in the ER, and then again a week later. They told him he has Asthma. Scary .  He also graduated this spring with his Masters!!! Way to go B !

That last month of school zipped by....which didn't break my heart at all!

 We had a wonderful, awesome trek. Oh my goodness! Words can not even describe my experience there at 6th crossing and Martins Cove and Rock creek Hollow. I learned some things about myself on trek this time.

Girls camp was a BLAST!!! I came home so stinkin tired that I had to nap for two days straight!
I have no pictures of either event. Sigh.

We sold all of our cows.  Seems a bit strange, but we felt it was time. We are just selling hay, so we still have wheel lines to move and hay to do, but first crop is done for this year!
We did end up buying a truck. A Ford 4 door king ranch.  We all pretty much love it.

 Jim Bob (nick name for our teen) and his cousin  (BFF) ( oh wait, is that a term that's applicable to guys?) and their friend, each bleached their hair. Hum. I decide that yes, Jim Bob could do it, but would he please wait until after I was home from camp so I could do it for him.
 They couldn't wait.
 It was a laughable mess really.
They bought 1, (one)  box of frost from the grocery store....., and split it on three heads!
 Um hum. At least they listened to me when I had told them to put plastic bags over their heads to keep the heat in. Jim Bob had orange hair. Well, in spots. He had to wear it to church like that because it was way to late to go back into town after more frost. I did cut it ,so it was pretty short which helped a bunch.
The next time I helped him and he all got it all lightened.  Some of the phases my boys have gone through. :-)

(sorry Mom...she would NOT be pleased to have any part of her,  out there...)

 I'm still walking and everyday I work at running too. I am STILL not any kind of a runner, but our Angie wants us all to run the Ragnar! Which is a 12 member teem relay run from Logan Ut to Park City Utah, a run of 195 miles. WHAT is she thinking??? We can't get in for 2012 because they are full already,  so we are trying for 2013.
I'll be two years older! AHHHHHH! I don't know if I can do it. Can you tell I'm full of doubt?  Angie is way sure we can all learn to run and do it! HA! But if we don't try, we'll never know huh! LOL

All of my daughters/DIL's daughters and I went  to Provo area for a  girls get away of thrift shopping and fun together. We had a good time and found some fun treasures, and played some silly games and just laughted a bunch.

I had another Birthday and the Mr asked me what I wanted to do to celebrate and I told him I wanted to do a session at the Nauvoo Temple. We really didn't have the right time scale to drive to Ill, so we went to Manti instead. My parents were married there. It is such a beautiful Temple.

Our lakes and reservoirs are completely full this year, In fact, the Upper Still Water has tripped. It is flowing over the dam itself. It something to see. ( my pics are NOT good ones....)

We had a ward camp out, and our  twiner grandsons caught themselves a little critter......

Oh cute!
Well that cute little Chip, or Dale, bit that cute little finger that was holding him! Lesson learned.
Wild things are wild....and they bite to get free!
(only I think the lesson they would say they learned, was Next time,  to hold on behind the head tighter) LOL
The finger is OK, and the twin is full of stories AND, he has a wound to show off.
(that's important ya know)


How is the summer going in your neck of the woods?

Blessings from the Stone House

So glad to see you're back. I've missed you! It is time consuming to blog and real life has to come first. You have been a busy girl. Happy Birthday a little late. Manti is a beautiful temple for sure. My husband's family is from Scipio it's their temple. Wanted to get to the pageant there this year but didn't make it. There's always next year, right? We still have a little snow on our section of mountain. Never saw that in the middle of July before. Weird weather year. Mimi

I'm SO happy to see a post from you! I admit, I laughed really hard when I saw what those boys did to their hair. Not something I expected from them at all...playing with your hair is such a girl thing. :)
