Bedtime Songs With Ty

video
Here is a video of Ty singing some songs and getting ready for bed. If he knows it's time to sing he always calls for Lucas to sing with him. It is fairly long and so I'm sure it is mostly family that will enjoy watching this!

Bingham Copper Mine

We've lived in Riverton for six years now and we had never gone to the Bingham Copper Mine--which is only 10 miles from our home. So today Lucas, Ty, and myself went with some friends. It was crazy busy because it's free right now but I'm glad we went early so that we missed the biggest crowds.
If you click on this picture and enlarge it you'll see some trucks driving back up. They look so small from where we were standing.
Here is a closer view of one of the mega trucks.

And here is a tire from one of the mega trucks.
The wind was blowing so hard I was afraid it was going to blow my camera right out of my hand! I did get a little dizzy looking down, it was pretty amazing.

Artwork

I have a desk in the kitchen where I work. My computer is on this desk. There is also a small spot on the wall--just enough room for a calendar. Each year I get a new calendar and the last two years I've had a Twilight and New Moon calendar. Laugh if you must but it is there. And yes, I know this opens me up to all sorts of jokes but if you know me then you know I am secretly (or not so secretly) obsessed. I don't like all the pictures in the New Moon calendar. The above picture is July. Why would I want to look at the human friends all month?
So Lucas has drawn me a replacement. I love it and would much rather look at it! However, next month is Edward and I won't mind looking at that one for 31 days.

David's Moves


I meant to post this picture in the previous post but had accidentally skipped over it. So here it is. It was so fun to watch David show off his Michael Jackson moves. He really is good.

Lucas informed me that he will dance like that at his wedding. I told him it takes lots of practice. So yesterday he watched Michael Jackson videos on YouTube and started practicing in the kitchen. He has a long way to go but I loved watching him try.

David and Ayla's Wedding

Last Saturday my brother David got married to Ayla in the Boise Idaho Temple. It was a beautiful HOT day!



The reception was so much fun. It took a few minutes for people to get out on the dance floor but once we all went out it was a blast.

David is a great dancer--he did some Micheal Jackson moves for us--here he is teaching Lucas some moves.
Lucas got very into the dancing.

It was great to be with family and enjoy visiting and working together to make the wedding a success. Thanks to Steph for letting us stay in her home. We appreciate your willingness to let us invade your upstairs bedrooms!

JetBlue's 10th Anniversary Party in Park City

JetBlue had a big party in Park City last Friday. We were celebrating their 10th year as an airline. The Park City Mountain Resort was ours for the day! It was also every other JetBlue employee's for the day so there were more than 4,000 individuals trying to do everything. We got there as early as we could. While Bryan did the zip line, Lucas tried rock climbing. This is as high as he got--I think he needs to practice some more.
Then we all went up the ski lift. Believe it or not I think this is the first time I've ever gone up a lift! I've never skied and although every year we say we'll go do the alpine slide, this is the first time we've gone up to do it.
I love Ty's face on the ski lift. He had to sit by himself. At least he stayed still the whole time! Bryan took Ty down the Alpine slide and Lucas went down by himself. While they did that I went and did the zip line. I was nervous but knew I couldn't pass up the chance because it was free. It was a blast! As soon as the door moved and I was going down I was fine. It was a beautiful ride to go down, and I think I was actually more nervous going up the ski lift than coming down the zip line!
We had to wait FOREVER for the mountain roller coaster. Lucas and Ty had a break while Bryan and I stood in line. Ty couldn't go so I went with Lucas and then Bryan went after we got back. That was a beautiful ride also. It was so fun coming down through the mountain, looking at the scenery, and going as fast as we could. Lucas also got to play in a bounce house and do a few other small rides. Both boys loved the little carousel they had set up. We had some lunch and then drove home exhasted! We were there from 10 AM to 2:30 PM. I'm glad we went early because those who came late had even longer lines and most people didn't get to do the zip line. There was a limited number of tickets for that ride. Thanks to JetBlue for a wonderful family day!
