"Proudly Stand"

I am so blessed to be able to call Teton Valley our "home"! This weekend I truly realized just how much I love living in our small mountain town. We have some of the most amazing people who live, work, and play here. A huge thank you goes out to the Huntsman Family. Their Celebration on Saturday was awesome to say the least. Glen Beck gave the best speech. I couldn't get enough and I'm not a huge fan. I really mostly get annoyed with him because my husband listens, talks, and reads Glen Beck. I'll be honest I got choked up a few times. After his speech the fireworks, video, and music presentation was unbelievable. By far the best I have ever seen. I loved being in that setting and the feelings that went along with it. I really can't even describe it besides "Proudly Standing" for what we all belief. I know it'll be a tradition in our family to spend our holiday home celebrating with family, friends, neighbors, and people who love this country as much as we do. I am proud to be an AMERICAN!

Love the 80's

We finally hit 80 degrees yesterday. Summer is here! Packed my 3 boys up and headed out to the new swimming park in Rexburg. It was a great day sun, water, diet coke, cousin, and lots of girl talk. The park is also great. My boys want to go back today,but my sunburn needs a few days to heal. I love summer and can't get enough of it. My house is paying dearly for it. It really needs some attention but I'd rather be outside enjoying and soaking up this fabulous weather.

Okay so the whole posting every two weeks thing didn't really work out for me. So I changed a few things with our blog and my attitude towards it. Not a chore, not busy work, but a place to keep some memories and special things. After 5 kids my brain can't keep it all in! I'm not a scrap booker and I never take pictures, because then I have guilt not scrap booking. So this should work great for me and my "Simple" family. We really are very simple. Love the small mountain town life we have!
