My life has come to a complete stop, and I'm loving it! I have been very busy for the past few months, and it's nice to finally have nothing to do. That's not to say that I didn't love all those things that made me busy though.
After my play ended in Oregon I had a week off before we had to travel to Utah to perform at Education week. So did I take it easy and have a week off? Oh no....here's what I did.
Crater Lake camping trip with my dad and Heather. It was a quick trip, but definitely worth it. Read more about it here. I love any chance I get to go camping with family.... especially my dad. He just loves it so much that it makes it even more special for me. I love that picture of him enjoying the view.
Sage fell asleep on our hike...this was the view I had of her when I looked behind me. She did not look comfy! That night I was blessed with the company of my dear friend Meagan and her beautiful family who was just passing through. I loved every minute of being with her, even if I was a little worn out from a camp trip with two kids and no hubby.
Oaks Park! How could I pass up the $3 tickets that come with Library Summer Reading prizes. But first we had to go to the last free lunch of the summer. I LOVE FREE LUNCH! The babies went on this ride a good 6 or 7 times. They LOVED it!
Ear piercing, and Ryan Shupe
Thursday is a day that will go down in history in my book. My dear friend and sister Heidi found her way to the dark side and pierced her ears. Let me give you a little background......my mother was against us girls having our ears pierced. I wanted mine done SO BADLY, but she wouldn't budge. Well, when I was 10, she passed away, and by the time I was 12 my ears were pierced. My sisters called me a traitor, and I was okay with that, but I never knew that they were capable of joining the dark side. Sorry mom! We still love you! That evening we enjoyed the musical styling's of Ryan Shupe and the Rubber Band. It was great!
Heidi showing off her earrings! And Sagie doing a little dance. Friday was spent packing and getting ready for my two week trip to Utah, Rexburg, Yellowstone, Bozeman, Snohomish....and Pendelton. So that day was pretty full too. Then life got really crazy! But that's another post for another day. I will leave you with a family portrait drawn by Action Jaxon!
