More family camping 2011!

We went camping AGAIN this weekend! We are LOVING camping and look forward to more trips! We stayed 3 nights and went on hikes, bike rides, watch movies, play games, go on night adventure hikes with the kids and the highlight of this trip was going fishing! We bought the kids fishing poles and went fishing. We were literally camped right on the river. When we were setting up camp we saw a moose that was like 100 ft from our camp. The kids thought that was great! And of corse we saw a ton on other animals as well. Camping with my 3 little boys and Nate is always an adventure and we build lots and lots of memories, which is what is important to us. //1 video

camping 2011

This weekend we went camping for the first time for the for the year. We stayed 3 nights and had a BLAST!! We went on bikes rides, and hikes and played games. Nate's brother and sister in law and their little boy Burton came up the last night to go on a bike ride and hang out by the camp fire. I am so excited that camping season has started. It was a good time to spend quality time with our kids and family!

Apartment Yard makeover







So, last weekend we did a complete yard make over at one of our apartment buildings. I have wanted for years to re-do the 80's looking yard and update it with new plants and trees. We ripped out all the trees and bushes and planted all new plants and curbed it and put down bark. It looks sooooo much better. I can only imagine how much better it will look once the plants get bigger and get their color. I bought plants that will be purple, red,orange,green,plants with white flowers. It looks kind of bare right now, cause all the plants are so small and have no color but give it a year or so and it will look like a million bucks! The tenants would complain that the bushes would cover the windows and when it would snow Nate and I would have to drive over in a blizzard and knock all the snow of the trees so they would not break and fall over. The tree's also covered up the 4 different addresses and it was difficult for the tenants to tell people how to get to their apartment. So, it was time to take care of all of this and re-landscape the yard. It took all day Friday and Saturday and it was a TON of work. Next on the list is to paint the building and put up shutters. The inside of this particular building we have already re-modeled. So now it's on to the outside. Here are some pictures!

Logan Temple






This weekend we headed down to Logan, Utah to see our brother in law graduate from college. While we were there we decided to walk around the Logan Temple. I have never seen the temple in person. All I can say is... IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!! Ethan was with us and he was shocked how big and tall it was. Here are some pictures of our visit to the Logan temple.
