I'm A Picker! You're A Picker! We're All Pickers!

It's true, we are all pickers.

We pick our clothes we are going to wear. We pick what we are going to eat. We pick what music we listen to, what we watch, what we read, and we even pick our nose. No? Is that just me?

Well the kind of picking I'm talking about today is CHERRY PICKING!!

Can you believe that we have been in our ward for a little over 4 years and we've never taken the oppurtunity to pick the cherries. What a shame for us.

Of course they had to do a little climbing. It's a tree, what do you expect?

Always the model.
Looks like we got there just in time!

Crossing The Great Utahns

Yeah, the title doesn't make sense but it sounds good.

We've been back for a few days from our glorious week in Utah. For some reason this trip felt way more relaxing then previous times we've visited. I love to see my family. I miss them. Sad.

We had fun spending time with cousins. I love that Lydia has a few around her age. Sadly Caleb is the youngest and at present there doesn't seem to be any other cousins in the near future for him to play with. (ahem)

On the fourth we went to the Provo Temple grounds and, with a few thousand other people, enjoyed not only this majestic sunset but a fabulous fireworks display. I might have taken more pictures but I was very nervous about taking my eyes off my kids. Just after the sun had gone down I saw a father frantically running around and calling for his daughter. Then another instance some kind girls were walking around with a little boy trying to find his family. It's really tore my heart out thinking of those poor families. Anyway, my sister Jessica took pictures of all the fireworks and was quite entertaining while doing it. You can see her pictures here.

Kevin has family in Utah too and his Grandparents happened to be in town staying with Kevin's uncle. We got to visit with them for a little while. The kids loved playing at Uncle Rex's and Aunt Linda's. I mean, who wouldn't have fun when all you do is jump on the trampoline, splash around in the pool, and play with kids all day.

Poor Analee. She was so nice about being splashed in the face though. Over and over and over and over . . .

On our way home, I don't know why but it was hard for me to put the camera down. The landscape was so beautiful. Wyoming, who'd a thunk it? I'm just kidding. And don't worry, I didn't take any of these while driving, at least not while I was driving.
