We've been working on some quilts lately. After I had done a lot of sewing on a quilt one day, Nathan and I were very amused when we heard 4 year-old Jed in the bathroom trying to start a new roll of toilet paper. When he couldn't get it, he said in a loud voice, "Oh my heck! Somebody sewed the toilet paper shut!" Haha-we got a good laugh out of that:)
We started our trip by stopping to see Jared's mission president and his wife who just returned from the Philippines. It was really fun to meet them and see their beautiful place. It was so green and pretty-Natalee made the comment that she wants to live in a place like that-you know-where stuff actually grows:)
Next stop was Bear Lake. Coming from home with 106 degree weather for a week, we were very excited to play in the water, but as luck would have it, it was cold and rainy and people were wearing their winter coats when we got there. But, determined to have fun, we got in anyway, and we did have a good time. Thankfully the sun came out after a while and it warmed up a bit.
One of, if not the world's largest elk horn arches:)
I used to love changing those sprinklers! LOVE The FArm LIfe!
oh no! Finally talked Grandpa into getting a John Deere, and now it's got an oil leak! Better fix that:)

The poppies I gave my sister are growing much better than mine-of course:)
My sister Maria in her amazing milk bottle green house. She puts me to shame and all the plants I sent here are PRODUCING! unlike mine! Do we sense a bit of jealousy here? :)
She lined her greenhouse with milk jugs full of water which gives her a much needed extended season. She is so industrious!
The old barn got a fresh coat of paint:)
Can't beat that background! Kids had a great time playing games.
