24th Weekend

We went up and stayed the weekend at Kevin's Grandma & Grandpa's in Santaquin. We took the kids to Lagoon on the 24th and watched their fireworks that night, and then did their Bounce Back and spent the next day at Lagoona Beach. We also went to Cabela's (of course!) and to Chucky Cheese. The kids were in heaven all weekend. We had so much fun. Thanks Kay & Norma for letting us stay. (Sorry lots of pictures to follow)


We went camping/fishing again. The kids all caught fish, and had so much fun!

It rained and hailed pretty good on us every afternoon.

This is for Gramma & Papa

My mom and dad sent all of the kids these New York shirts. They asked us to take a picture of all of them together. So - Here you go. We took all the Grandkids to McDee's where they had so much fun! Thanks Gramma & Papa!!! We love you!!!

I love to cook with my crockpot, and the lady on this blog (her link is under my favorite blog list) makes a new recipe in her crockpot everyday. wahoooo!!

4th of July Weekend

We had such a fun weekend. We took the trailer and went camping on Cedar Mountain. We went fishing, rode 4-wheelers, shot our bows, ate lots of yummy dutch oven food, relaxed & played cards. The weather was beautiful! We drove down to Cedar City to eat dinner and watch the fire works. Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

Kevin made this yummy Dutch Oven Chocolate Cake. Here is the recipe - you really should try it!! (I think next time we will try it with toffee chips, or peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips (or mabey just both)).

1 1/2 cup water
1 (10 oz.) bag miniature marshmallows
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 chocolate cake mix; prepared as directed
1 cup light brown sugar
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Line the bottom and sides of a 12" Dutch oven with heavy foil. Mix the water, cocoa powder, and brown sugar together and pour into the Dutch oven. Add marshmallows and spread them out evenly. Pour prepared chocolate cake mix over marshmallows. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cake batter.

Cover oven and bake using 8-10 briquettes bottom and 14-16 briquettes top for 60 minutes.

Serve warm with whipped cream.

Favorite Things Swap

I did a swap that Jaesi organized. My swap partner was Pam Dana. I sent her a cook book, and some cooking stuff, tic-tacs, sour cherries, a cute card making kit, and some lotion. I received a Scentsy warmer and scents, MaryKay sunless tanner and satin lips, bath and body smell goods, a shirt, and yummy treats (dont mind the half eaten Big Hunk:)) I DEFINATELY THINK I GOT THE BETTER END OF THE DEAL!! Pam - Thank you so much, I love it all!! I think YOUR favorite things are now MY favorite things!!

Allee's Birthday Party

I took Allee shopping, to lunch, to the Bear Mill(thanks for the Birthday money Grandma & Papa), and to get her ears pierced for her Birthday. She has wanted her ears pierced for a while now, so I told her she could on her Birthday. We had so much fun together, and she loved that it was just us! We had a family birthday party for Allee on Monday. She loved it! She wanted a pink worm cake (dont ask!?!?) She got to play with her cousins, and eat cake and ice cream what could be better than that. Happy Birthday Alls
