Happy Birthday Brad

Tomorrow is my honey's birthday. I'm wanted to wish him a happy birthday and tell him how thankful I am to have him in my life. I sure don't know where I would be without him.


There are so many reasons why I ♥ him.....here are some of my favorite.

1. He is a worthy priesthood holder & is able to take me to the temple often
2. The amazing example he is to me
3. The way he looks at me and still gives me butterflies
4. The cute little boy smile he gets on his face when something makes him happy (usually BYU football, when they are winning :) )
5. The way he takes care of me and assure him that everything is going to be okay, when I'm pretty sure they are not
6. The cute little love notes he leaves me
7. He is a fabulous chef & grill master
8. His ♥ for knowledge & learning and always wanting to make himself better
9. His hard work & dedication for everything he does
10 A. The way he lives his life through the gospel
10 B. Most of all for being there for me all the time, for being a great shoulder to cry on & a strong rock to reply on.


I'm so glad I married him. I'm also thankful for Vaughn & Elaine for raising an amazing man, for teaching him what is right.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRADFORD! I LOVE YOU

Weekend for Birthday Fun

We just got back from an fun early birthday weekend in Salt Lake. We were there from Friday morning to Sunday evening.


Friday, when we got into Salt Lake, we went to Joe Morley's with some friends to eat lunch. It was delicious BBQ. One of my best friends, Miranda & her husband Mano & daughter Sami, flew in from Hawaii to visit her parents in Sandy and we were able to spend some time with them. After lunch, the girls went to go get "pedicures". Brad's birthday is on the 12th and I wanted to do something fun for it. I got us a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Sandy, UT. The girls went with me to help decorate the room while Brad went to get a haircut. I got him this yummy fruit arrangement from Edible Arrangements. It was so good. It came in a football. I also made him a BYU blanket for the game to help keep us warm. Thanks Deanna for all your help...I couldn't have done it without you :)


That night, we went to the BYU vs Utah State football game in Provo. We went with Miranda & Mano to the game. It was a great game and they won. It wasn't as cold as I thought it would be. It had snowed earlier in the week so I was really afraid we were going to freeze.

Saturday we went and ate lunch with some friends. We went to Tucanos in Provo Canyon.



It was delicious as always....thanks Felt's.

After lunch, Brad went with his dad shopping and I went with his mom & sister's shopping at Ikea. It was a very successful trip. Elaine (Brad's mom) bought us a dinning set for his birthday & an early Christmas present from there. So I bought some chair cushions & a nice rug to go in our kitchen.

It is an awesome table that has two leaves that pull out so you can have it small or big. It's great. We have some other tables & a bookshelf from Ikea and now they all match. I bought some red cushions to go with. They look really good, if I can say that.

Option 2

Option 3

Thanks again Vaughn & Elaine :)

That night we went to Mapleton, to his Grandpa's house. Brad and him have the same birthday and they are turning opposites this year. Grandpa will be 92 & Brad will be 29. We had delicious pumpkin pie & pumpkin dessert.

Sunday, we had breakfast with some good friends, watched the first session of Sunday morning conference and drove home.

A big thank you also goes to my parents & Lisa for watching Chena for us while we play. She loves it there!

It was a such a great weekend...Thanks to all that made it memorable. Enjoy some random pictures from the weekend.

Look what we have grown!

Our veggie pots have done a lot better than I thought they would. This morning, this is what Brad picked from our little garden. They will be delicious I'm sure.

WOW! Where did the time go?

Time sure has flown by....It has been over a month since we have updated. We have had a lot going on.

Brad's Grandma passed away the end of July so we headed up to Boise for a funeral. It was really nice. I didn't know her very well so it was great to hear all the stories & memories that were shared.

The first week in August was the Bonneville County Fair. I was involved with that through my job. It was great and we had a such a fun week. I learned a ton.

August was a very busy month for me with Pampered Chef. I was in my first month and had lots to do to get it going. It was great and I had some really fun shows. I got off to a great start. Thank you to all who helped me out.

Telford & Sadie got married on August 29, 2009 in the Logan LDS Temple. It was so nice to be able to be in the temple with them on their special day. We had a luncheon at my parents house in Soda Springs that afternoon. We ate dutch oven chicken & potatoes, corn on the cob, homemade root beer, and creamies. It was a very delicious meal. Thanks Mom, Dad & Spence. That night we had a reception at the Rock House. They did a beautiful job decorating. It was an amazing day...thanks to everyone that made it so special for them.

Myers Family Reunion

Yes, it is that time again for family reunions. The Myers Family Reunion was held in my parents backyard in Soda Springs. We had lots of fun. We did all sorts of things: eating good food, having birthday cake & ice cream, sleeping, lots of boat rides, swimming in really gross green water, more good food, volleyball, helping the little ones make cardboard cars to go to the "Drive-In", watching the movie Cars, eating popcorn, sleeping, eating zuccinni bread (yummy), more boat rides, washer toss game, guessing number of candies in a jar, amazing dutch oven chicken and potatoes for lunch, lots & lots laughs, and last but not least, making memories with the ones we love. I haven't seen some members of my family for quite some time and it was nice to get together. Thanks everyone that came & made our reunion amazing!

Fun in Rock Springs

We were able to go to Brad's parents house in Rock Springs, WY for a few days. Brad & his dad, Vaughn had planned a fishing trip to Tomahawk Lake in the Wind Rivers.

We got to Rock Springs late Tuesday (14th) night. They got up Wednesday morning at 6am and headed out fishing. They had to drive a few hours and then hike in about 5 miles. They came back later that night with great sucess. They were able to find lots of fish to catch. Needless to say, they were sore, sunburned, mosquito bitten, and tired. Here are a few pictures:


While the boys were out fishing, I stayed home with Elaine (Brad's mom) and helped out with the kids. She runs a day care business in her home. We took the kids to story time at the library and to the movie The Tale of Despereaux. It was fun and the kids enjoyed the movie. After all the kids were gone, Elaine, Lisa (Brad's sister) and I went out to eat and shopping. We found a few exciting things.

Chena got to play with all the day care kids and they loved her. She was there little doll for a few days. Elaine has some play houses in the back yard and they would put her in the house &"play house". They actually had a real dog to "play house" with. She was cute.

Thursday moring, Brad & Vaughn got up early to go golfing. They had a great time. We spent the rest of the morning just hanging around the house.

Over the weekend, Brad lost his grandma (Vaughn's mother). She has been sick for a while and it is good that she is not suffering anymore. We know she is in a better place, with her Heavenly Father & others that have passed. We will be heading to Boise next weekend for a funeral. Our hearts, prayers & thoughts are with the whole Huntsman family for their loss at this time.

Thank you Elaine, Lisa & Vaughn for a great time in Rock Springs! We ♥ you guys


Happy Birthday Mom

My (Rachael) amazing mom turned 50th on July 13th. She was able to spend her birthday hiking, enjoying the outdoors and time with friends. She is such a great example to me. We love and appreciate all she does for us. THANK YOU MOM FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE!
Not her best picture, but I love to see her relax, because it doesn't happen very often

4th of July

We had a fabulous weekend with our families. Brad was able to get some time off and it was so nice to have him around. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE PICTURES BELOW.


On Wednesday, we went down to Soda Springs and stayed the night with my family.

On Thursday, Brad, Chena, my sister Lisa, and I went to Bear Lake to swim. Chena loved it and enjoyed swimming around. It was fun to watch her play around. It was such a nice day to be there. We even got a little sun burned. We packed a lunch and ate it on the beach. Thursday afternoon, Brad's parents, his sister Kellee and her family, sister Michelle and her family, sister Lisa and Brad & I went and stayed the weekend in Lava Hot Springs in a yurt. It was so nice. It had 5 queen beds, 2 couches, TV, microwave and fridge. Brad & I brought our tent to sleep in since we had Chena to take care of.

On Friday, we spent most of the day at the pool in Lava. We rode the slides, jumped off the high drives, got some sun, ate some good snacks and swam, swam, & swam. I hadn't been to Lava since I was little so it was fun to go back. They have done so much to improve that place. We paid a little extra and got wrist bands so we could get into the hot pools that night. We went back to camp and Dennis (Kellee's husband) made us a great dutch oven chicken and potato dinner. Then we played some games, roasted some marshmallows and went to bed. It had rained really bad and our tent leaked. My sleeping bag and mat were soaked. So we ended up going to Soda Springs to stay the night.

Bright and early Saturday morning, we ran a 5K (3.1 miles). We had done a little training but not as much as we should have. I had a really hard time. Soda has a lot more hills than I thought. I started running and immediately my side started to cramp. So needless to say, I walked more than I wanted to but I finished and that's all I wanted to do. Brad did really good!! He ran it in 42 minutes. He wanted to beat his sister Lisa and he did by 4 seconds. But his Dad, Vaughn, ran it in 37 minutes. He's amazing! After the race, we watched the parade, walked around city park, saw some old friends, the kids played some games, and ate some good food. The boys then went golfing and the girls went back to Lava to take a nap. That night we ate some more good food and roasted more marshmallows. We stayed in Lava for the fireworks. We were about to take our chairs out to the edge of our camp spot and sit & watch them. Elaine & Michelle got us some glow in the dark braclets and sparklers. I ♥ sparklers & fireworks.

It was so nice to be able to spend some time with his family. We were all able to be there. Thanks again, Vaughn & Elaine for all you do for us....we love you!

Hope everyone else had a great 4th!

FUN IN THE RAIN

YESTERDAY WAS A GREAT DAY! WE HAD SO MUCH FUN. ON OUR WAY BACK FROM SODA SPRINGS, WE HAD TO STOP IN POCATELLO AND DROP OFF THOSE SILLY LIFE JACKETS AND OARS @ THE ISU OUTDOOR CENTER. IT STARTED TO HAIL AND RAIN LIKE CRAZY AS WE GOT INTO POKY. THERE WAS ABOUT 6 INCHES OF STANDING RAIN AND THE PUDDLES WERE HUGE.




SO WE GOT CLOSER TO IDAHO FALLS, IT STARTED TO CLEAR UP. WHEN WE GOT TO IDAHO FALLS, WE DECIDED WE WOULD GO HIT SOME BALLS AT THE DRIVING RANGE. BY THE TIME WE GOT THERE, THE CLOUDS HAD MOVED IN AND IT STARTED TO RAIN & HAIL AGAIN. WE WERE STUCK AT THE GOLF COURSE UNTIL IT CLEARED UP A LITTLE.

AFTER 3 1/2 HRS OF DRIVING AROUND LOOKING FOR THEM AND MAKING A TON OF PHONE CALLS, WE LEARED THEY WERE NOT STAYING IN ALPINE THAT NIGHT. FRUSTRATED & UPSET, WE LEFT THEM AT THE PARENTS TRUCK. THEY HAD HIKED UP TO LOWER PALISADES LAKE AND LEFT THE TRUCK IN THE PARKING LOT. AFTER WE DROPPED THEM OFF @ 11:30 PM, WE WENT BACK TO SODA SPRINGS FOR THE NIGHT.

Fishing

We have been doing some fishing lately and have taken some good pictures. I am also a proud owner of the Ugly Stick fishing pole. It works really great. I haven't caught anything with it yet, but I will. We went fishing at Palisades Dam on Saturday and had a great time. Chena loved playing in the water. She ran circles with her mouth open. It was cute, so we took a little video.

The lake we were fishing on

On our way home, we came around a corner and saw some deer on the road. We pulled over and saw a baby deer about 20 ft off the road. We got out and took some pictures. The deer was probably born the day before. It was still in a ball and wasn't walking.


Brad had today off and I had to work so he took Chena and went fishing. They went to lots of different places but didn't have any luck. He took some good pictures so here are a few.
