Quick Year in Review...

Well, just thought I would try this out since I am terrible about keeping in touch with everyone and I have been enjoying the updates from all of you who inspired me:)----I guess we will just see how time consuming it is. We have now been in Lehi, Utah for almost a year now. We have grown to love our new home and ward----but of course still miss all our friends in Logan and hopefully this will help us to keep in touch better. Some of our favorites this past year in a quick year in review...

#1---Hawaii Cruise!
Definitely number one since we didn't have to pay for it! Thanks Papa Dave and Grandma Susie---the whole herd of us went in February 2007---16 Adults and 28 Kids! You can imagine all of the looks we got everywhere we went:) Here are the boys and Daddy on the temple grounds---so beautiful! Mace thinks any body of water is Hawaii----so our first time going back to Burley, Idaho after our trip to Hawaii----we crossed the bridge over the Snake River, and Mace points to the water, "It's Hawaii Dad--we are here!" So we go to "Hawaii" about once a month now---thanks to the Snake River!

#2---Back Yard Fun!
We love having a FENCED backyard! The boys enjoyed playing in Mommy's garden, digging in the sandbox, and of course playing baseball! Daddy is starting them young----I am shocked we didn't have more accidents with a bat in both of their hands!
#3---Duck Pond!
We found a beautiful, secluded pond area with trails around---the boys absolutely love going there. Whenever we get to the heels of the bread----it is time to go and feed the ducks! Just this last time we found that one trail lead to a playground and another to a little waterfall----so now it is even more FREE fun!
#4---Attempt at Camping!
I say "attempt" because the only time we all slept in the tent was in the backyard! Anyway, maybe next year will be a better experience and we will get out more. The boys love being anywhere where there is dirt as you can see from Keston's face (couldn't figure out how to rotate his picture)---so I think camping is for us! It is great to get John away from the computer and I can't stitch with the dirt----so it is a great get-away for all of us.

We have been enjoying the fall weather and I will have to get some new pictures up soon----just realized we really don't have a current family picture---so I need to get on that among all the other things. We are so thankful for all of our family and friends and hope you enjoy our blog and I will try and write more soon. Take care---

We love the blog. We haven't done one that was just our own family, but we have one that we all use on both sides of the family to keep everyone informed. I am glad to see how well you all are. Someday we may make it down that way. The only time I have left this valley since house hunting in St. George was last weekend to bless Matthew. After my tests are completed we hopefully can start going again and we will make the trip. -Jensen's-

Kassie - your blog is so cute and I must say how amazing you are. I'm quite proud to call you neighbor. Hopefully as it gets warmer we'll see you more and get to know those boys even better.

You must tell me where that duck pond is in this first post. angeedraper@yahoo.com
