Grilling!

Tonight Tommy and I decided that we would grill some pork chops on our grill that Brianne and Jon gave us for our wedding. It was our first time using it and I think Tommy did quite well. As you can see our back yard is just a bunch of dirt right now... we are working on that! Hope you like the pictures!

Tagged?

Ok so Mechelle tagged me and I guess I'm supposed to go into my pictures and select the 4th photo out of the 4th folder... This is what I found... I guess I wanted to take a picture of myself in the visor mirror of the car? Who knows. I'm thinking there was more to this story but I can't quite remember... hehe




Oh! I tag... Charlotte, Ma'ila, Kristy, America, Annalee, Stacy

Weezer!!!

So this collage is kinda how the night went down. The band came out in all white suits with a white backdrop, who knows why. Later on the backdrop dropped to reveal a huge light screen thing and they took off the white suits to reveal red jumpsuits.

The concert was awesome. We sang along to almost every song (except for the very new ones that we didn't know too well) and we had a blast. Afterward we were so tired, hence the sleepy picture at the end, we went home and crashed. It was an amazing night.

While we were looking for our seats there were these awesome life size posters that we walked by and had to take advantage of. I think they're pretty awesome.



Angels and Airwaves

The band that came on before Weezer was Angels and Airwaves. In case you didn't know, this band is Tom Delonge's (lead singer of Blink 182) project. They are a lot more mellow then Blink and pretty much have a different feel all together. We think they're pretty awesome.

Here is a small clip of Angels and Airwaves playing. The quality is awful but I think you get the idea.

State Fair!

Yesterday Tommy and I went to the State Fair. We didn't go on any rides because we just went for the Weezer concert. We had to pay for admission to the fair anyway so we decided to go a little early and enjoy some of the art and stuff. So here is a little collage of us before and on the way and at the fair. Enjoy!

Super Saturday

This morning I went to my wards Super Saturday. I made a magnet board. It is pretty awesome. It didn't come with the button magnets but I thought it would be cute if I got some buttons and glued them on. I'm pretty proud of my work and it's already on our wall. What do you think??

Inukshuk!

In the North West Territories of Canada there are land markers called inuksiut (non-plural inukshuk). They are rock formations that look like a big rock man. They used to be used as travel markers so that people wouldn't get lost. They are very popular in Canada and will even be used as the symbol for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC.




I happen to work with a pretty cool Canadian named Darryl. He said that he had seen an inukshuk on his way back from lunch the other day and we were all really excited to see for ourselves.



We decided to take a small field trip down the road to the Heard Museum, where sure enough, in Phoenix, a real live (but not really live) inukshuk! We were so excited!



I took some pictures for your viewing pleasure. This is pretty much awesome and I think I want one in my backyard.


Stair Jumping!

Last Saturday when Mechelle and her family came over, the boys, Zach and Kaleb, decided they really liked jumping off the stairs. So the responsible adults that we are, decided to let them. :) They never really went above the third or forth stair and I have really soft carpet. One of the times, Zach thought he wanted to jump off with Kaleb at the same time and Kaleb wasn't quite ready. Zach pulled him down and Kaleb was sad. Because Kaleb was sad Zach got sad. They soon got over that and right back to doing what they love - stair jumping!




I was having a hard time with the timing and getting the pictures while the boys were still in the air. Tommy thought my camera should have a rapid fire setting or something. We thought this was it. I have no idea what this setting is for but it's definitely not rapid fire. I thought they were kinda cool anyway.


Raeleigh Dawn



Here is a little collage of my niece Raeleigh. She is the sweetest little baby in the whole wide world and I just love her to death! Last time Mechelle was over, we took some pictures of her and I had to share them so you all could see what a darling little angel she is. Enjoy!

Parking Lot Fun!

So yesterday while I was waiting for Tommy to come to the car so we could go home from work, I decided to have some fun and take some pictures of me in my new outfit. The car behind me isn't ours, it's some random car in the lot that happened to be in the view of my camera when I set it up on top of our car. So I hope you like it!

We love our House!

We love our house so much that we decided to take pictures of us in and around it so y'all can see how much fun it is too! We're pretty much settled now. There are a couple of rooms that still need a little work (mostly just the ones we never go into) but we are getting there! I hope you enjoy our house fun!
