still on the trip

Hello everyone. We are still on vacation in Utah and Idaho. We spent a few days in Utah with our Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Mike and cousins. On Friday we (along with Aunt Bonnie) drove up to Idaho Falls and Rigby to see some family there. Friday night we arrived at Aunt Elaine (G-pas sister) and Uncle Evans house in Idaho Falls. G-pas other sister Kerri and husband Bob came over for dinner. It was really nice to talk to them.

The next day, we all went over to Bob and Kerri's for a HUGE family picnic. When Elaine and Kerri found out we were coming up, they called all their kids and their families to invited them to the picnic. Over 114 family members arrived. It was a BLAST being around SOOOOO MANY family members. It was the 1st time in 30 years that Aunt Bonnie had seen most of her cousins. She really enjoyed seeing them again and meeting MANY more for the 1st time. Robin and I had a lot of fun hanging out with our4 cousins that we haven't seen in 3 years.

We are back in Utah for a few days, we leave on Wednesday and arrive back home Thursday night. Today we are going to my cousins daughters 2nd birthday party. It will be fun to see her and interact with her. Well, we have to go now. We will update the blog later. Bye.

been busy

,We are sorry for the long time without updating. We have been really busy. Last week Robin Jason and I took G-pa to Disneyland for the day. We all had A LOT of fun. Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Mike spent a few days with us. They came down for a family funeral of Bonnies uncle, Jim Amonette. Jim was a great man who will be missed by MANY people.

An interesting thing happened to me last week. I was sitting in the family room when i heard a bird fly into the window. I went to check to see if the bird was alright. As I opened the sliding glass door, I saw a Humming Bird laying on the ground. I picked the Hummimg Bird up and held and stroked the Humming Bird for about 10 minutes. It was amazing to hold a Humming Bird what is more amazing was that exactly 3 years to the day another Humming Bird flew into our window and I got to hold that one for 15 minutes.

Jason is on extended sick-leave for work because he is having complications with his siezier medication. The doctors are trying to figure out the best dose for him but until then he can't go to work. Hopefully they will get it straightend out soon.

G-pas knees are hurting him worse then they ever have before. He is in agoney every moment and nothing helps. He has an appointment with his knee surgon soon and maybe he can come up with something to help G-pa.

We are all planning a trip to Utah for awhile to look at houses and to visit family. We are also planning on visiting family in Idaho while we there. It will be a fun trip. We hope we will find a house that will live up to G-pas high expectations but I doubt it.

Hope everyone had a happy easter

we hope everyone had a "Hoppy" Easter, we sure did. Robin and I spent several months planning a special birthday party for Grandma. Grandma was born on Easter Sunday in 1928 and this was the 1st time since she was born that her birthday fell on Easter. Since we are sure that Grandma never had a 1st birthday party and it was also the 1st time that Easter was on the 8th, we decided to throw her a 1st Bithday party. We decorated her entire room with 1st birthday and fun to be 1 decoratons and banners. Robin and I also gave her an easter egg hunt on her back patio. We also had a pin the egg on the rabbit game and The dice game. The party was a blast!!!!!

Robin and I also went all out on buying her presents. We got her a cute Princess hat that she can wear when she goes outside; a Build-a-Bear that says 6 different things; a ball that she can throw (which she did several times yesterday); several books that we can read to her when we visit her; an MP3 player that we downloaded music that she use to listen to when she was a teenager; a picture frame that says "Then and Now" that has a picture of Grandma when she was 1 year old and a picture of her that was taken of her on the 7th ;and many things that went in her Easter basket. Grandpa bought her several outfits and he and Bonnie and Chad bought her over 6 dozzen roses. They are absolutley beautiful!!!!

There were many people who came to the party. 10 people from the ward dropped by, Our best friend and her 2 daughters, Dad and Lousie came by for and hour, and of course Grandpa, Jason and Robin and I. We all had a lot of fun.
