Totally Happy with Toothless

On the day that How to Train Your Dragon was released on DVD, Braden got to go to the store with his friends, had his photo taken riding Toothless (the dragon), and got his own copy of the movie to watch over and over again in the coming months. If you now ask him if he liked that day he will say "Graaaalth" in a raspy voice which means "yes" in his new language - dragonese.

A Corny Day with the Yonally Clan

If you know the Yonallys you know how they love to laugh and be silly. It only made sense to take them to the corniest place we know of - Cornbelly's. There they keps us entertained by:

Driving conspicuously small vehicles (oh to have Loyce doing this in video. Hillarious.)

A tetherball to the death match - with victorious Carolyn laughing so hard she couldn't breath after Kathy was knocked on her rear end by Carolyn's wicked tetherball arm

Competitive rubber ducky races

An amazingly good day for all - except perhaps Kathy. Are your bruises gone yet?

Catching up again ...

I think of myself as an easy going person. I don't ask for much. All I REALLY want is to be an exscellent mom and wife, a great cook, a successful business owner and consultant for other businesses, a good landlord and rental manager, to keep up on ALL of my projects (including my blog) and have a completely clean house with manicured yard. Seems like that is asking TOO much so here I am catching up on my blog again. If I ever catch up completely I might tackle my junk drawer ... :)

Wedding Dance

We had a great time at Connie's wedding in the canyons. The setting was beautiful, it was wonderful to see Connie so happy and the music was so engaging that both of the kids and Grandpa Christensen did a jig or two. (Where is a video camera when you need one?)

Christensen Camping Trip

Camping with the Christensens has changed over the last several years from a backpack trip in remote areas of the Uintas to a posh experience in a camper. While I have very fond memories of watching dragonflies with my sister-in-law, Karen, around a Uintah lake, I have to say that having a bed is a nice change :). After just a short drive from home we met up with Grandma and Grandpa Christensen and enjoyed a hot dog dinner, an evening roasting marshmellows and awaoke to a gourmet breakfast. (How DOES my father-in-law create such delicious fried potatoes? I wish I knew....)
