Night Photos

Tonight I took two of the girls (Emily and Grace) on a nighttime photoshoot. We went to a few different places and I played around with the settings on my camera. Here are some of the better ones. (no postwork)

Its Autum Time, The Leaves Are Falling Down.

The girls had a great time playing in the leaves.

ER I <3 U

Friday night I had the "opportunity" to go visit the nice people in the emergency room. My chest/abdomen started hurting Friday at work about 3:00 and it got steadily worse; by the time 9:00 rolled around I was pacing the floor pulling my hair out. A couple of our neighbors came over and took me to the hospital ER where they did some blood work, x-rays and ultrasounds to see if it was kidney stones or try and figure out exactly what it was. Results-- inconclusive. They gave me a heavy sedative and some prilosec and that has seemed to help, but next week I get to go have an endoscopy done to see if it is ulcers (again) or something else. Not sure all of what is involved, but if they figure out why this type of thing keeps happening, I am all in favor of doing whatever it takes. Maybe I can watch the video of my guts -- probably rated "R" for grossness.

New Headboard

This past week I finished a new headboard for the master bedroom. We looked numerous places for one that Diana and I liked that had the "look" we were looking for. The closest ones we found were several hundred dollars, so I decided to make one myself. All the materials cost just over $50 and we got exactly what we wanted.

My Aunt and Uncle invited us to go boating with them on Saturday. Emily, Grace, Landon, and I had a good time. We went all over Utah Lake, including over to Saratoga Springs. Emily even rode in the tube. I didn't think she would, but she had a great time.

Reunion Kids

This past week was my Grandma's brothers' and sisters' reunion.
I took some rather nice photos of some of the kids.

Take the Poll!

Diana and I have had numerous -- lets call them "discussions" over what to name the baby, and we need your ideas. Please go to and let me know any ideas you have for a name, as well as guess the weight, height, etc.

Almost Camping

We went to Mutual Dell for an Elder's Quorum/Ward campout. Diana had had enough camping for a bit, so we decided not to stay over, so we just went up on Friday, then I took Emily and Grace again Saturday morning. We had a great breakfast of pancakes and omlets.

They also had a zipline that both girls (reluctantly) and I went down. But they both had fun once the had done it, and wanted to do it again.

Camping Out

Diana's family had a reunion in Logan Canyon. To prepare we got a new tent, since the 5-man that we had (which barely fits 3) wasn't going to cut it.

This is our new tent -- 12 man (yes, for a family of 6 soon to be 7).

Left Side

Right side, so roomie -- even for a preggo.

On our way home, we got stuck in a big traffic jam. If you look closely there is a little boy relieving himself next to one of the cars. (I found this out after I got them home.)
The traffic jam was caused by this.

Horseback Riding

As part of Diana's family reunion, we went to the American West Heritage Center in Logan. They had some pony rides and the kids LOVED riding them.


Landon (had to wear a pink helmet, it was the only one that fit him)

Almost 3, going on Deacon

Landon -- Almost 3, going on Deacon. No, he isn't turning 3, just wears SIZE 3T clothes and is pushing into the 4T arena. He's a healthy eater, that's for sure. But he is so fun to be around; just putters around the house playing with toy cars, balls, or whatever else suits his fancy at the time. But if you wait to long to feed the boy, he gets really cranky. So if he starts getting into things or making a mess, you can bet, it's mealtime.

Voltron of Butterflies

My family went to the Monte L. Bean museum for Family Home Evening tonight. One of the exhibits they had was the Voltron of Butterflies. Too bad they can't really do that in nature, that would be sweet!

Biker lost in the valley!

Ok, the headline is the attention grabber, but seriously, how come no bikers ever get lost this way? How nice would it be to hear on the news: "A local man, missing for over a month was found today, 40 lbs heavier than when he got lost. Apparently he had a trailer full of food with him, which he ate too much of. In fact, according to experts, he could have lasted as long as 2 more months had he not eaten so much of it at once.

Seriously though, this is my bike load of food for the office for a snack vending setup my co-worker and I have. I am sure I got some strange looks riding to work pulling a trailer full of food, especially since I took the longer way down through some farmland areas.

Springtime Evening

Emily and Gracie and I were playing out on the front lawn and I decided to take some pictures, there were several nice ones, but this one turned out pretty well though their fingers needed to be over just a little. It was hard to set up staring straight into the sun and all, but with the flash to light the foreground, turned out pretty well.
This one turned out pretty good too, the lighting was good and she was in the shade so she didn't have to squint. All in all, a decent Saturday evening.
