-K-, so I am not the best blogger in history, but even if I get only one out a year I'm doing better than nothing at all , RIGHT? I am now going to post a blog about this last summer. It was crazy and fun. We took a trip to visit my grandmother in Washington.
My dad took us to Forks so that my sister and I could sight see places from the Twilight saga. The forest is beautiful there. We had 3 family reunions to go to, and I ran the Wasatch Back RAGNAR relay race with my family. The race was a blast, and I actually trained for it. YEA!!
I cut my previous time in half from last year. We also won the personality award for our cars (thanks to me, because they were my jurisdiction :) I was so proud, haha.
That was about it for the summer if you don't include every camping trip, lake trip and hike into the mix. Like I said, we had fun.

We had a babtism this last Saturday! Our oldest child and only son Bryce chose to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was babtized by his grandfather Claude Warner. He glowed all day, and you could tell that he was proud of himself. We were proud of him too. Bryce is a very special kid, and it was a very special day. He was so excited to get his first set of scriptures with his name engraved and everything!
It was also neat because his cousin Tanner was babtized the same day!
Here is another quote for today,

I know that my last post was also about hiking, so I apologize. We had a wonderful day today with our family. We decided to take advantage of the weather and went to Redcliff's. I was expecting to find water flowing through the pools and enjoying a nice picnic in nature while the kid's dipped their feet in, but it was bone dry! I have never seen it completely dry there before. It was still really fun. We met a really nice couple that are on a road trip around our beautiful country. They run the Official National World War II museum and are originally from New Orleans. CRAZY! After our hike we tried catching crawfish in the stream (only Bryce was very good at it).
Then we went to Gunlock to show the Guys where we saw the tadpoles earlier this week. This time we brought some home with us (I hope they don't die). We have all decided that Bryce is the most talented rock skipper in our family. I can never make it jump more than twice. Well, here is my quote today!
Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death. -Alais Nin-

I have no clue what I am doing, but I have promised some very good friends of mine that I would get one so here we go. I guess I'll just start with now. School is getting out and my all consuming job is at a close. Though it was quite a wonderful experience working with kids at a performing arts high school, I am ready for a break. This morning my daughters and I went for a hike near the Gunlock reservoir. It was really nice to spend time with them again. We caught tadpoles and learned about metamorphosis. The weather was beautiful! On the way home we saw a hawk hangin' out on a fence post. We were about 3 feet away. It even screeched at us. I took a couple of pictures of it. WAY COOL! As for the rest of my day; I spent some time working on a song that has been rattling around in my head lately and I wrote a sad poem about a girl who gave up on her only chance at love before it even came. Maybe I'll post it sometime. Now let me finish off with a quote,
"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love becomes a part of us."
