Sisters just wanna have fun!

Beautiful Seattle
We are so cute.
Lunch at the space needle.
We had a 1:30 reservation for lunch at the Space needle. Yes, the entire restaurant moves 360 degrees allowing you to take in each course of the city as you take in each delicious course of your meal. Our meal was excellent. Debbie and I had baked chicken and Judy had a ($30.00) hamburger.(For lunch you have to spend at least $25.00 to be able to go there.) After lunch we went to the gift shop and modeled the sunglasses.
Just out shopping. What do you think?
We went to see the troll under the bridge off of Aurora Street in Seattle. The Fremont troll has been lurking under the north end of the Aurora bridge since 1990. He was sculpted by four Seattle area artists. The shaggy haired troll glares southward with his shiny metal eye -- a hubcap? In his left hand, he crushes an old style Volkswagen beetle (which originally contained a time capsule of Elvis memorabilia; removed after the car was vandalized and the California license plate was stolen). There are plenty of places to pose, and interaction with the troll is encouraged so this is what we did. It is so fun to do pictures with my sisters.

Seattle the first day!

Sister at the Seattle Temple grounds.

Here we are in Seattle. This is Mount Olympus from the plane. Seattle is a beautiful city. We went to the Seattle Temple. It is a lot like the Prove Temple. Being in the Temple with my sister is always a great blessing!!

My three beautiful daughters
My beautiful baby is now 14! Wow what a great blessing Rylie is to our family. She has always been the peace maker in our family. She is so kind, outgoing and friendly to everyone. She loves to swim, dance, ride 4 wheeler, ski, go to our cabin and hang out with her friends. She is a good friend to me. She is a great babysitter and everyone loves her. She is always thinking of others. We all love her dearly!

The cuties kids at the park today!

A Great Movie for the family

Forever Strong, is about a high school star rugby player with a chip on his shoulder who learns life lessons after being thrown into detention for a drunken-driving offense. And the story is built around a local institution, the Highland High rugby team and its inspiring coach. Larry Gelwix. It is a locally made movie. It is a movie that is optimistic, hopeful and even spiritual.

We went as a family to see this movie. It is a powerful movie on staying committed and strong to being your highest and best self. Don't do anything to embarrass you or your family. We highly recommend it! If you see it let me know what you think.

Disneyland and Tower of Terror!

Haunted Mansion
Grizzly River Run! You get wet.

Look who we saw.
I love Tower of Terror, Scott does not. He was a good sport and went on it twice with me. That was very hard for him. I wish you could see his face. (just click on the picture to see it better) That is what I call true love. He HATES the ride. We had a great time together. This is something that we have never done before (going to Disneyland without the kids). We had a BLAST together. I think we just might do it again. I really enjoyed the new Toy story ride in California Adventure park. I really loved Grizzly River Run. I think next to Tower of Terror, that would be my favorite. Thanks Scott for being a good sport.

Happy 20th Birthday Geoff

Geoff at 6 months

He has always loved the great outdoors

His jeep that he had through High School

7th grade Halloween
Geoff and Scott have always been close. Our family joke is that Geoff is my favorite (How could a mom have a favorite?) So I play a long and say, "yes he is my favorite." My favorite son. Geoff is a wonderful blessing in my life. I am so grateful to be his mother. He has taught me so many lessons, that no one else could have taught me. I have a special place in my heart for Geoff. He has a great way with people. He is liked by many. He is a good leader and knows what he wants and is going to go for it. He is a very hard worker and knows how to work hard and play hard. He will do great things in this life. He will bless the life's of many. As he has blessed the life's of his family. Geoff I love you so much. Happy 20th!!!

Thursday night party at the Elder's

Carlie and Rylie had a few friends over on Thursday. I love having the party at my house. The more the merrier. I don't think Scott would agree. They have such good friends that are good kids.

JV game at Springville.

Carlie cheered yesterday. It was HOT!!! We play at Springville and we lost. 14 to 13. I am such a good mom I was the only cheer mom who went. Or maybe I am the only dumb mom. Who knows. It was fun to watch and Carlie is getting so good.
