An Amazing Woman

As we all know, Anne is an amazing woman. She is talented, beautiful, clever, caring, and an awesome mom and wife to name just a few. She just had her birthday which gave us a chance to step back and reflect on her wonder.
Unfortunately we forgot to put the memory card back in the camera so all of the pictures from her party are lost forever.
I made this persian love cake for the party. I was a little worried that people wouldn't like the strange indian flavors, but it seemed to be pretty popular.

Jack had an idea

Jack touched a light bulb a couple days ago. Here are the results of the damage it left on his finger. I want to pop it so bad!

He loves showing it off to everyone.

Wheelers Farm

My sister Laura & I went to Wheeler's Farm by my house today. I love this place. The boys had so much fun petting the animals, feeding the geese, & playing in the forts. They also played in a stream that surrounds the farm. Its surprisingly clean too. I feel like since I cant have a farm of my own I can come here to live the dream. Kidding people! I would die if I had to take care of animals every morning, shovel the poop, clean pigs, filter my own milk, & pick eggs from chicken coops! But it gives me an appreciation for what farmers have to do. Wheelers farm has a lot of opportunity's for people to get their hands dirty. They provide cow milking classes, horseback riding, wagon rides, & summer camps. I did see students working there from the FFA organization. Melissa Faustino would be so proud! Oh, did I mention its free? Here are some pictures of animals & farm animals too.

Farm boys

Here are more pictures I was able to take of the boys at Wheelers. They were having so much fun. I like the old rusty farm stuff anyways.

Leave it to Charlie

Charlie is always getting himself into dangerous situations. But this week he took it to a whole new level. He was going outside to play when I thought I heard the hose turn on or something. I went out to check only to find this cute little guy dancing for Charlie less than two feet away from him! All I could think about was how fast the venom would rush through Charlie's 25 pound body. So I flipped out! I grabbed him and brought him back into the house. David was there to spray the snake away with water. Thankfully no one was hurt. Except for the snake. Grandpa Chaunce had to behead him with a shovel. Poor snake. Was that too harsh? I'm just so grateful to the snake for giving me a warning sound to make me come out to check. In a way the rattlesnake saved my sons life. Ive always been amazed by these pit vipers even though they have a deadly bite. I kept the rattles. Maybe I should put them in Charlie's baby book.

Moldy rocks

Im pretty obsessed with St George. The scenery this place has is out of control! You have the famous red rocks, lava formations, & the views of Zion. But lately I'm lovin the moldy rocks that stick out of the mountains. They have so much color on them. I say the more mold the better (kind of like cheese right?). I thought it would be fun to take pictures of some of my nieces & nephews who live there. Now dont mistake me for Annie Leibovitz. Im not a photographer or anything.
And how could I NOT post these? These kids are so cute!

More silly moldy pictures

This may scare you

The kids had been playing on the mountain all day. They were so dirty with red dust that I had to take some shots of them. Jack looks like a zombie.
