To celebrate Memorial Day and the beginning of spring, I've decided to update this blog no matter how hard it is! Ron and I have hit a milestone. He finally relented and agreed to hire some people to help us get our yard and house in shape. Although we still feel like we live in a new house, we have been here 8 years. So this is a list of the things we've accomplished (with a little help from our friends and the Mario brothers.)Two decks have been repaired and resurfaced, railings are coming, hardwood floors have been repaired and refinished,the whole yard has been weeded, trimmed,and generally spruced up with new bark and soil pep all around,our friend Tom is building a long-planned-for shed in the backyard,an area on the side of our house that has been sluffing because of an underground spring is being cleaned up,and this weekend we planted our pots even though it was a chilly 55ish here in the mountains. I'm sooooo happy about it all - it was getting a little overwhelming. So we've done our part to keep Mountain Green the Beautiful, beautiful and green!!!

Moose Tracks

We have had tremendous snow fall in the last several weeks. The local moose population is coming down the mountain. We had one wandering our neighborhood today. It was an amazing sight! !

Snow Days

2008 has started off with record snow in Mountain Green! The grandkids had a lot of fun sledding, making snowmen, skiing and of course drinking lots of hot chocolate!

Grandma Connie goes high tech!

I think I'm going to love blogging! My first effort is a slide show of our annual trek to Lake Powell with the kids and grand kids. This year the trip was a little more challenging because we have 2 little boys - 22 months and 11 months, and it was scorching hot. But, we were lucky to find a shady spot in Lost Eden so a great time was had by all. Ben, Susie, and Marcee were all successful knee boarders and Ben even got up on skis. Our baby Sam loves the water, and although Jameson was not as crazy about the water, he loved to ride in the boat. Aren't they all just adorable?
