Out with the OLD and In with the NEW

You can tell a lot from someone by looking at the shoes they wear on their feet. Randy wears these boots no joke 24/6, he does take Sundays off. I think he might even sleep in them. Randy was in desperate need of shoes that would keep his feet warm in the cold winter months ahead. I really don't know how he works in cold weather, but I am grateful that he never complains about it.

Me & my Grandpa Hink

Look at my new hat. It keeps my ears nice and toasty.

I love Grandpa Hink! He's not afraid to get down and dirty with me.

I wonder what this is?

Life Off Game On

We are die hard fans of the Utah Jazz. Randy printed off their schedule for the year and swears he is going to watch or listen to every game, so far he has done just that. The Jazz has a great team this year. It is so exciting to see the team do so well. We are hoping to attend some of the games at the Arena. It would be awesome to get some lower bowl tickets. We have been watching online, so maybe you will see us right behind Jerry. (We wish!) Go Jazz!!

This is my 10th picture from my fourth picture file. Come to find out this picture is up at Alli's Ranch in Heber. (the one who tagged me) This is Randy's sister (in green), her husband Jacob, and our two niece's Tawny and Nicole. This was 2 years ago. That was a fun trip to the ranch. Can you tell by all the dirt on there faces? We always have a great time up there. So Thank You Jeff and Alli for the great memories. I guess I need to tag 3 the winners are Michelle, Bethany, and Ryan.

Randy's Job was on the NEWS

If you want to check it here. Randy has spent 9 months on this job and is right on schedule. He supervised it from the ground up. His job is to tell all the contractors what needs to be done and make sure they do it right. I was able to go inside the Wine Store and take a look around. It is a beautiful building. I was very impressed. Go and check it out. It's on about 1500 so. 300 w. Way to go Randy! It looks AWESOME!

My brother Ike & his wife Bethany took this picture of Brock a few months ago. They did some fun effects to the picture so I thought I would put it in video form. Thanks guys.

Terrific Tuesday at Jungle Jim's Playland

Brock enjoying his boat ride.

Bryson and Brock taking a ride on the carousel.

Brock waving to Aunt Erin. He loves her so much!

Brock and Bryson going on a Jeep Safari. Brock was great at the beginning of the ride, until he came out of the tunnel....We heard screaming and then we saw this....

His little body was to little for the seat belt, he slid right out of it. His ride ended there.

We thought this ride would not be fast because all the other ones weren't. Boy were we wrong.

Aunt Erin, Bryson, and Brock trying to enjoy the ride. Brock eyes were so big the whole time, he had no idea what was going on. Bryson seemed to like it, but wasn't sure. When the ride came to a stop Erin got out and Brock was still big eyed. I went to pick him up and his whole body went limp and he slid down to the bottom of the cart, I think his head was still turning, he didn't know what to think. It was hilarious!!

Brock and Bryson loved the swings.
