Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethic over convenience, and truth over popularity ... these are choices that measure your life. Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

Busy Summer Days!

Whew, we have been running like crazy! Last week the kiddos and I snuck off to Boise for some r&r at Grandma and Grandpas (well in theory) Hal had inventory :( So he had to stay home and be the responsible one who pays our bills! Poor Hal! My Sister was having a Luau Wedding Reception and some more of our long lost family members were coming, so yay! It was another mini reunion! My cousin Beki and her boys drove from San Diego to Salt Lake and then up to Boise! It was so fun to see her!

We went camping too and Grandpa had the kids dredging and panning for gold. They had so much fun and brought home some gold and even some Garnets! Drew was totally into it. Grandpa also took them for a ride in the hot rod and down to the shop to show them how they build/finish the cars. They were in LOVE!

Grandma and I did a little shopping and of course some cooking! We made some yummy homemade fried pies which I hadn't done in years, too much fun!

We watched movies, the kids lived in the pool and spa and on the trampoline. My brother continually whipped me at Wii everything grrrrrr........One of these days, I will prevail! I did however beat everyone at the Wii Bowling Pin Challenge! LOL, I know, I am a dork, but I never win at anything unless it is a board game, lol, so YAY!

All in all it was a great time. The kids and I passed around the stomach flu, which was not too fun, figures, when we were on a mini vacation. I always love going to Boise.

Tab it was so much fun seeing you and your kids. I wish that we could have stayed longer though. Your kids are so well behaved too. Not like my run away and the boob man. I love you sweets.
