Off To The Races!

When I asked Gabe what he wanted for fathers day, he answered in a split second!  I want to go to the Lemans Series at Miller Motor Sports Park!  So that is what we did.  It was a perfect sunny day and the Porsches were out.  The races were fun to watch and it was so cool to be able to go right down in the "pits" and see all the cars.  I did not think I was going to like it, but I had a really great time.  Happy Early Fathers Day Gabe!

Now that's dedication!

Last week Terra was in town visiting, and so was Gabes mom.  We had everyone over for dinner and it was a packed house with Hillarie and the girls too!  Terra was staying in Jordans room with the baby.  It was starting to get late and I told Jordan that he needed to go do his reading homework, not even thinking about the fact that his room was in use.  About 15 minutes later I went in the laundry room to get something and found this:

Now most kids would have used this to their advantage, to not do their reading!  But Jordan just made use of what was available!  I knew that laundry room counter would come in handy!  You notice that his teddy bear "squishy" and Brutus got in on the action too :)

Porsche, Perennials, and Pineapple!

Was today a GORGEOUS day or what!  Gabe had the day off, and I did not have to go to work until 4pm, so we decided to take the porsche out for a drive to Thanksgiving Point.  We went to the tulip festival and walked thru the gardens.  

Oh yeah, if your wondering about the pineapple, we stopped at JCW for their famous hawaiian burger with......pineapple!

A "SWEET" new job....

I just started a new job at Sweet Afton's in Gardener Village.  It is so much fun, and the people are great.  No one is in a bad mood in a candy store!  I love working in the village and hopefully I will still have a paycheck after wandering around on my lunch hours.  Here is what a day at my work looks like....pretty rough eh? Did I mention they give free samples of fudge....come on in and say hi!

Dreams Really Do Come True......... for Gabe!

Gabe can now die a happy man.  I think he came out of the womb, with a love for the Porsche 911!  He has always wanted this car and now he's got it.  A local dealer got one in on a trade and it was just too good of a deal to pass up.  I must admit that it is beautiful and quite fun to drive.  Yes, he actually let me drive it :)  I am very happy for him and he deserves it!  Congrats Babe!

An Affair to Remember......

It was Mom's 60th b-day, so we had to come up with something good! Mindy, Terra, and I decided to do a 2 day event here in Utah. It started on Friday morning where the girls met at Kneader's for their famous French Toast. If you haven't had this yet, you are missing out. We then headed over to the Brickhouse Day Spa and had massage or a facial and then met in a room together to get our pedicures! It was heavenly. Then it was racing to get ready and meet all of the rest of the crew at the Salt Lake Temple. We took pictures in the Joseph Smith Building, and then went thru a session. It was so neat to have all of the family in the temple together. Next it was PF Chang's for dinner, and over to the Melting Pot for dessert. Everything was perfect and we were totally exhausted by the end of the night. We were supposed to go snomobiling the next morning, but everyone decided to sleep in. Saturday the boys went off to Ruth's Diner for creme brule and chocolate malt shakes while the girls went to work on turning Mindy's downstairs into a "tent". It turned out so beautiful, and we never would have gotten it done if Wendy had not been there to supervise! We had bought white t-shirts and printed words that were important in life and also described the person wearing it. Mindy had the girls from her ward come over to "take orders, and serve dinner" to everyone. We had Cafe Rio salads. Sooooo Gooood! Okay I have to give a huge shout out to Dippidee for the cake. It was amazing. Both to look at and to eat! We played a few games and then settled in for a slide show program that featured tons of pictures and the voice recordings of each person's special message for mom.  It was such a great weekend and I don't think it could have been anymore perfect.  Happy 60th Mom! Hope you loved it as much as we all did.
