Dinner at the Newlyweds

Heidi and Brady invited us over for Sunday dinner. It was really good. She served Spaghetti with garlic bread. I brought the dessert. My Kentucky pie flopped but still tasted good. I don't understand how I could make a recipe 5 times perfect and then have if flop every time after that. Half of it is on the bottom of my oven now. So you know what I will be going tomorrow.

Their house is really cute. As you can see it is kind of plain now. They need to buy nails so they can hang some of her artwork. There is nothing like being newly wed and starting from scratch. It is so fun to watch them start their life together.

Dana Park Grand Opening

Dana Park had their grand opening last Friday and Saturday. I saw that they were going to have a snow field for the kids to play in. I thought that Haley would love to play in it so I took her. We waited in line for about 45 minutes so she could play for 10 minutes. She didn't seem to mind waiting in the heat. She looks forward to a snow trip every year. As you can see she had a fun time playing with Heidi. That night Loren needed some quiet time at home so he could get some work done. I took her back to Dana Park for the firework show. We met up with Whitney and Brent there.
Haley has learned from her sisters how to pose for pictures.

FHE at Bass Pro Shop

Last night Loren thought that we should do something fun for FHE. For quite a while we wanted to take the whole family to the Bass Pro Shop . So we decided to take them there. They were very impressed with all of the animals and the size of the place. Haley loved watching the fish in the stream. At first Haley wasn't sure about the bears but later decided that she wanted her picture taken with one. She loved driving the boats and ATVs. Afterwards we went to McDonalds and got icecream. We had a great time together. That night Haley and I fell asleep together watching Curious George. I woke up by Haley's scream and jump. She said that she was dreaming about the place we were at and about the soft bears. She rolled over and felt me and I was soft so she thought that I was a bear. She thought it was funny that she thought I was a bear.

The drive to Showlow was especially beautiful this trip.

This is my Grandma Jarvis. Doesn't she look great for 94.

Haley liked the snake but didn't want to hold it.

Labor Day in Taylor

We took a trip to Taylor, AZ to visit Grandma and Grandpa Jarvis over Labor Day weekend. It was so nice to see G&G. Uncle Wayne had caught a baby horny toad, snake and lizard for Haley to see. She enjoyed them for a few days and then they let them go be with their family. Haley loved putting up the American flag with Jhama every morning. Grandma will be sad when Haley learns how to pronounce Grandma. She also loved watching the hummingbirds, grasshoppers, and ants. The rest of us had fun lounging around and staying up late playing Mexican Train Dominoes and the Pirates Dice game. Haley was having so much fun she didn't go to bed until 2:00 am the first night. We went to Showlow to visit my Grandma Jarvis. She was so excited to see Sterling and meet Heidi's husband Brady. We found out that she was good friends with Brady's Great Grand Parents in Snowflake.
