Zion


For spring break we went down to St. George to go camping at Zion National Park, it was an adventure to say the least :) We did get a chance to attend a session at the temple, and then our plans sort of fell apart after that. The campsites were full, and we finally found a place to stay for the night after searching forever. We had planed to hike Angel's Landing, Jim's favorite hike there, but with time constraints we ended up driving the tunnels, and walking up weeping Rock trail in Zion National Park. It was really pretty, and really fun! Later we saw our nieces and nephews who were down in St. George on vacation for their spring break too. And we did of course swing by In-n-Out Burgers...OK maybe twice ;)

Easter!

We went to our sister's home in Springville, and had a little Easter dinner and egg hunt! The dinner was amazing, and it was fun watching all the kiddos find their Easter eggs.

Our Garden!


So we wanted to get a good start on our garden this year, we were a little late last year and didn't quite benefit from everything we planted because of it. So we started our herb garden in a miniature greenhouse! Amy had this wonderful plan that wouldn't take up much space and it worked out really well! The first picture is the herbs and a few flowers in the little greenhouses, and the second pic is of the herbs transplanted for their first time. We also bought a few vegetable plants so that we could get a longer season out of them, Amy did a really nice job with the layout this year.
If you can see the strawberry plants in the corner, last year we did a wonderful job feeding the birds with them, so we got a little more creating and build a little bamboo structure around them with bird screen. so hopefully this year we will have some wonderful strawberries to eat!

Conqured the Y!

So, I have lived in Utah for 6 years now. I have 8 siblings that have graduated from BYU (me not being one of them :) GO AGGIES!), and before moving to Utah I've traveled many a time, and hiked many a trail, but none of those trails was the famous hike to the Y....until....April 11, 2009!
Jimmy wanted to enjoy the rainy weather, and since his ankle is healed enough he decided to hike the Y and I went with him. Holy cow that thing is steep! We had a lot of fun, got to the top and slid in the mud down! I would be more than happy to do it again!

Out with the old, In with the new!!!

After sleeping on our mattress on the floor for 5 months, we found a great deal and bought a new bed! As you can see from the old bed it was sagging horribly which shows how the "guts" of the bed were out of shape! It's our first new furniture purchase and we love it!!!
