Long time!

Its been a long time since I have posted. So I guess I should put a little something on here. My new job is great! I love all the people and what I am doing! I have been sick so I have mostly been at home this week but I am better now so I hope I can get out and do some fun stuff.

Twin Falls

Today we went over to my grandma Jean's house in Twin Falls, ID. We had a really nice day over there catching up with family. I tried to get some good pictures of the temple but it was hard with the time of day. The temple starts its open house on Friday. We tried to get a family picture but as you can tell mostly me with my eyes closed, it didn't turn out.

A day at the park!

Today we got up really early(520) to head up to Jacksonhole, WY. We had a little bump in the road getting on the right road but that wouldn't make it as fun if you just went right there or at least that's what we tell ourselves. We went into Teton national park for a 5 mile hike. As you can see it was beautiful! If you look at the picture of the tree there is a chipmunk that's the only animal we saw.

Matt and mom on the hick up

Who needs water? Matt has this little backpack that holds the water which is great for me I didn't have to bring anything!

Today we drove up to put flowers on my grandpas grave. This was the first time I have seen his headstone it was really nice. After we took a drive through the back country of Idaho. We went to through the big town of Preston which is where my grandpa was born and also where the movie Napoleon Dynamite was filmed!

A day at the zoo!

Today we drove up to Idaho Falls to the zoo! I think that I find a zoo in every town I am in. The zoo was really nice. As you can see some of the animals are just out walking around!!! Just a little something fun that happened. I put my handbag up on the desk and it had gum in it.... Well mom came out of the computer room with an empty pack of gum Maddie wanted some gum I guess?!? Thank heavens for small dogs that cant reach anything...

The mama hen and her chicks!

The 4th

Today was a pretty big day for me. It started off with a walk with mom and Maddie. I am not sure who was walking who. Most of the time I think she was walking me! Then it was home to clean the cars up. Then Matt and I went to the parade. It was ok you can see a saw a truck there that I thought Brandon might like. After we went to lunch with my Uncle Steve at a favorite place of mine. I was also able to see my friend Lindsay and her little guy for a few minutes today. Then it was back to the house for a family BBQ or as they say in the south cook out! We took some family photos you can see that getting Maddie to stay in it lead to some funny pictures. Then at last we sat out on my moms deck and watched the fire works show!

First day home!

Today was a long day of travel! I got into Salt Lake at 10am and mom and Matt were there to get me. From the airport we met up with my Aunt Nora for lunch. Then of course we had to hit up a mall on the way home. Then it was home to see gram and meet Maddie. WOW she is a big dog up against Oscar. As you can see all she wanted to do was give me kisses and be on top of me. It is so good to see all my family!
