Coreena is home

This picture was taken in 2005, yet we look like we are 12 

My friend Coreena has made her way back home after serving in the Rochester mission.  Her homecoming was today.  She was the only speaker on the program and had Russell M. Nelson presiding- I was so nervous for her.  She stepped up to the podium and did a really good job!

ReAl Salt Lake

 We went to the Real game where Javier Morales and his Real Salt Lake teammates beat the MLS's top team.  Katie and Chase Oborn invites us to enjoy their sweet hook up at the Rice-Eccles Stadium.  We ate Famous Dave's BBQ until we were sick, and I won't mention the 2 drumstick ice cream cones that I put away for dessert- whoops?

I am an old woman

I am so sore from trying to ski like I am a teenager.  Reality check- I am NOT a teenager.  I don't quite snap back from those major falls anymore.  I had to roll my body off my bed because I could barely move.  None the less, I had the best time boating and hanging out with our friends. My sore back is totally worth it!

This guy is like 87 years old and still going.  I can only hope to have that much fun at that age.

Tyler and I are going to practice really hard to become what you see above.  I can only imagine Tyler in little yellow shorts- Ha ha!

Echo Reservoir

Tyler's tricks

Our friends Tyler and Devrie Pettit invited us to go boating up at Echo Reservoir.  Both Tyler and I are a little rusty since we haven't been in a long time.  I was having a great ski run when I caught my edge and tumbled across the top of the water! Ouch!  My whole left side went numb.  I tried to shake it off and get one more run in.  I had a couple great turns after that but I was just to tired to go any further.  We had such a great time!

Facts about a Kiss

  1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.
  2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face.
  3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike.
  4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.
  5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.
  6. Ever wonder how an "X" came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity.  Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.
  7. Talk about a rush!  Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.
  8. The average woman kisses 29 men before she gets married.
  9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don't.
  10. The longest kiss in movie history was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You're in the Army Now.  It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds.  
Who knew there were so many benefits to kissing those you love!

Grandma's got a new boyfriend!

We decided to take Cacia's grandma to the Holladay City Summer Festival, there was music, food, games, and fun for the whole family. As soon as the music started Grandma couldn't stop dancing. All of the sudden from out of the shadows a mysterious tall, handsome man came out to ask grandma Nida for a dance. They danced until the music stopped and we laughed our faces off the whole time. Grandma was scared he wanted a little more than just a dance. She immediately made us take her home. What a funny night, Cacia almost had a new grandpa for Father's Day.
