Summer Time Fun

I haven't written on here in a while and it's about time I do.  Rach and I have been loving the weather lately.  It's been in the 70's and even 80's a couple days.  So we have started to do some fun summer activities.  We started grillin' outside almost every night.  Food on the grill just tastes so much better to me.  My new favorite is grilled asparagus.  It's really easy, just take about 15 spears and place them in a ziploc bag.  Add 2 tbsp of olive oil, and some sea salt.  Shake it around for a few minutes and grill 'em for about 2 minutes per side.  I like 'em a little crispy.  We also decided to see how green our thumbs are, so we've planted some veggies on the back patio.  Living in an apartment doesn't make it so easy, so we just bought some potting plants and some miracle grow soil. We've got some onions, peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes.  I love veggies and we'll see if we can get Rach loving them too.   Also Rach forgot to…

A New Commitment to Ourselves!

This is for all of you that are feeling really FAT this time of year.  
I have been able to get away with wearing hoodies, long sleeve shirts, sweater and jeans all winter but now it is summer, I ready to bust out the capri's, shorts and shorter sleeve shirts.  A couple of weeks ago, I went to put on my jean capri's and they didn't fit...not even close.  My clothes are feeling a little tighter & nothing seems to fit anymore.  
Brad & I are running a 5K (3 mile) race in July so we have started to train a little bit.  I have been getting in a little more exercise but I need more.  We have only been jogging a day or two a week, but this morning while we were out, we decided enough is enough.  It was such a beautiful morning.  We are running around the "green belt" in Idaho Falls that goes passed the temple and the falls, that is a 3 mile loop.  It was so nice to be out @ 8 am in the beautiful sunshine. It was so nice to run pass the templ…

Las Vegas

Over the weekend, Brad & I went to Las Vegas to my sister, Lisa, gradutation from UNLV (University of Nevada Las Vegas). She graduated with a Masters in Social Work. We are so proud of her, getting a Masters is such an accomplishment. We had a such a fun time. We were all able to be there as a family. We picked up Tauna & Dustin in Pocatello on our way down and we rode together. Mom, Dad & Telford came down together on Friday. We did some fun things while we were there.
We went to the Aquarium at the Silverton and saw some cool fish, sting rays and jelly fish.

While we were at the Silverton, we went into Bass Pro Shop. Tauna, Lisa & I found these way cool hats and wanted to take them home but we decided not to.

Saturday morning, we went to graduation. It was at the Thomas & Mack Center on campus. It was about 3 hours long but it went pretty quick. I bet there was about 1,000 kids graduating. Here is a picture of the family after graduation (minus Telf…
