Last Days- does that sound Sacreligious?

We drove out to the Lincoln Beach Lake Harbor on the South end of Utah Lake. We've been taking fun nighttime drives with the girls trying to take in all the beauty of Utah we can. We are leaving next Saturday and we are very excited! You would think the move is Christmas-Kate is the most excited.

The best part of the week was our Garage Sale-Success! The last hour we posted stuff on KSL for Free and I told all my neighbors, they got a ton of fun stuff. I took in all the Rubbermaid tubs and put out a "free" sign. This couple pulled up in their Jacked-up Ford grabbed everything down to the blankets on the ground, threw it in the back of the truck and drove away. I was dying laughing. I called Spencer at work as I spied through the window. We didn't have to take a thing to DI.

Jess really likes "This Is It" about Michael Jackson. Here's her interpretation of his work:

The Fourth and Fifth and Sixth......

Time is flying. For More Detail you can read Spencer's Blog or Lisa's Blog. We have about 20 days left and we are cramming in as much fun and family as we can even though we have so much to do. Here are some highlights from the past couple weeks.

Spencer rode his first Brevet? 125 Miles. He is soooo amazing! He wasn't even sore after-all he complained of was a sunburn....

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Birthday Grandpa Bob!

Kate started riding without training wheels, it took her about 10 minutes to pick it up. She's a Morse and it's in her blood I guess. She rode her bike almost the whole time at Grandpa Bob's birthday celebration in Alpine.

Jess had fun playing with Sienna her cousin and drinking as much Root Beer as possible.

Lisa loves a Holiday, especially the fourth of July! It's the best day to celebrate her dad!
We started doing fireworks and all these little girls showed up! we live in a strange neighborhood that way, not a lot of parental supervision, in fact this little Hispanic girl I have never seen before came running down the road-and just sat down-Strange!
We drove near Thanksgiving Point, pulled over, turned up the Radio and watched the Fireworks with the girls. They were great!

We finished off the night with Fresh Home-made Apple Pie!!!! As American as it gets.

We spent some time with Maryanne's Boys while she was at Mom's Recovering from Surgery. They Ambushed the Princess Castle with their army men.

We went swimming with Malinda's Kids and played in the sun. Kate and Jess can't get enough of Cayden, Kambree and Devin.

We've been enjoying eating fresh and local foods. One day I opened the fridge, it looked so good I took a picture. I'll say it again but if you haven't watch FOOD INC. it will change the way you feed your family. We are so blessed to have such great food. We will have even more access to Healthy, Local Food.
