"In a Little While"

I have a new (unnamed) NIECE! Yes, it's a girl, and I'm surprised by how excited I am that she's a GIRL. It's just that in my family we don't have too many of those so it's always so fun when we get one.

I'm so excited that I get to see her in exactly one week! I couldn't help but do a little shopping for her today...

"Utah, We Love Thee"

After what seemed to be a lot of exciting drama and gossip, Gov. Herbert chose Davis' dad as the new Lt. Governor. Luckily, both of our jobs let us take some time off so we could go home for the big event.


Here are some of the official pics that kind of crack me up...

The Bell family...
Congrats Greg!! It's fun to have a politician in the family!

"Rodeo"

After my training in Denver I got to head home for a few days...
After an awful awful flight, during which we detoured on over to Boise (on a flight from Denver to SLC) and then back to SLC with about ten million screaming kids, I made it home about six hours late. The next morning we woke up early and headed up to Star Valley for the weekend.

While we were up there we had to take the kids over to see these puppies... Can you believe they're from the same mom??

There are three blackies and three goldies. My cute niece was dying over them and maybe I was too.


The crazy thing is, all of those puppies live in the barn with these kitties and they just pile on top of each other in the hay... It was kind of crazy...

Luckily, we were in town during the Lincoln County Rodeo in Afton. I LOVE small town rodeos. I even talked Pinkie into eating some funnel cake...



When I got back to Utah, I met up with this lady....


and these boys, plus Davis, and almost plus Ali.. to do the Weber River AGAIN. This time we were better prepared with oars, but we still had some close calls. Who knew tubing could be so extreme??

What else is there to say besides I miss Utah summers, even though I feel like I've spent most of the summer there this year. I really do love those nights.... Luckily I'll be back again in September to meet the new baby... HOLLA!

"Rocky Mountain High"

Last week I got to go to Denver for training for my NEW JOB... So I convinced Nici to come out and play with me the weekend before...

We had fun being lazy, shopping, tubing, laying out, and trying to sleep in. I was sad when she left me all alone for my training... I didn't really know what to do with myself for three days. I'm looking for volunteers to meet me out there again in three weeks.. any takers??

"Beautiful Boy"

I just finished a couple of really good books about drug addiction, especially meth...
"Beautiful Boy" is the father's point of view of his son's addiction and "Tweak" is the son's point of view of his own addiction. It's really interesting to get both, even though "Tweak" is a little graphic...
