Now that things have settled down, I thought I'd post some pics of what we've been doing this summer!
ATVing on my parent's property in Washington. Everyone had fun!
We decided to stop in Fillmore, UT on the way home, to check out a museum. My great grandfather was involved with the building of this building which was supposed to be the State Captiol for Utah. It is only 1/3 or 1/4 finished. It was only one of the "wings". They did not finish building it because it was decided that the state captiol would be in Salt Lake city. We saw pictures of my relatives on the wall and there was a book of my great grandfather. I was thrilled to pieces!
Yes, you read right! I was on the videophone talking to my sister, and all of a sudden, I feel a loud BOOM! I was sitting on the couch- unable to think but hold on to my couch for dear life! It took me by surprise! Yes, I have been through many earthquakes, but still... My sister saw the shaking images, my t.v. was shaking and my couch was as well. Tigger ran around like crazy- meowing- unsure of what happened. I felt a few more aftershocks. The epicenter was a stone's throw away and it was scary to think, that if it was any worse, there would be a problem. I tried to call Andrew- the phone lines- no matter how many times or different numbers I tried to call had a busy signal. I finally got a hold of Andrew's work- I think it was the secretary- he had gone out to lunch. He paged me back and told me that he was out at lunch and didn't even feel it! Good Riddance! I called the children's schools, thankfully it happened during lunch recess, so the children were already outside. Everything was ok. So, I felt better- but this ordeal has made me realize that I better have my emergency kits ready, and I know we have one, but we probably need to update it. and make it possible so that if I'm at home alone with no hubby, I can carry it.

Don't we make a cute couple? This was taken the day after he proposed to me.
My mother's father: Grandpa Call holding me.
I think this one is when I was 6 years old
This picture of Emma always cracks me up!!! Isn't she cute?!
Ash and Em at my favorite Pumpkin farm that doesnt exist anymore- Westside Farms

Back in my glory days when I used to run- I used to be fast!
