strawberry picking

We hand-picked the strawberries from the strawberry patch, added a little of this and a lot sugar, and our results were perfect- a homemade strawberry jam that tastes like summer.

75 days of building our house

Six months ago TODAY we moved into our house. It feels like yesterday.
I've been waiting a long time to post about our house because I wanted to wait until everything was finished, but I finally realized today that even if I waited 6 years, our house would still not be ready for show. oh well.

The building process was new for us, and we both learned a ton. We are so grateful for this lucky opportunity.

We love being back in Lindon!

rodeo time

 We have always loved the strawberry days rodeo! This year, Jake's work decided to make a team to compete in the 'wild cow milking' competition, and they got first place! No major injuries reported, but they get to go again on Saturday with the finalists. To say I'm worried would be an understatement-Luckily I have prayers and strawberries & cream to help keep me from freaking out...

                                                  yes, those ARE Jake's boots in the air...

back in bermuda

Just over a year ago we had the chance to go to Bermuda, and absolutely fell in love with the island.  Since returning home, we have bragged about the beauty of Bermuda to many people we know.  It was our favorite place and we only hoped that someday we would have the opportunity to go back.  We figured that opportunity would come when we were MUCH older, but this past week the stars somehow aligned and we returned to our beloved place!  We rented scooters and rode the entire island on the wrong side of the rode. We visited our favorite beaches we found last time, and discovered a few new favorites.  Bermuda is OUR place.  We hope we make it back again someday.

15 seconds of fame

We weren't planning on a trip into manhattan when we bought our new york airfare,
but 15 stops later on the subway we found ourselves in times square,
After shopping and walking we glanced up and what did we see?
some very familiar faces on a rather large big screen tv!
(even if it was a short trip to new york, we had to make time for the metropolitan museum of art)
