Crocodile Tour in Tarcoles, Costa Rica

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011 in Nature, Our Travels Worldwide

WE MET HILLARY CLINTON IN TARCOLES, COSTA RICA! Check it out: Ok Ok, the CROCODILE’S name was Hillary Clinton. Also, in the river were Monica Lewinsky, Osama Bin Laden, Lady Gaga, Mike Tyson and George Bush. Quite a unique bunch. So crocodiles are the weird random thing I have been terribly afraid of since I was […]

We are here! Costa Rica!

Monday, December 5th, 2011 in Nature, Our Travels Worldwide

We arrived, we survived and our kids are… quite grumpy! Ha, that is A-ok — they will adapt soon. Our first day was very low key and the kids are tucked safe in bed for a long night of sleep. Let me write down a few notes from our trip so far: In the stores […]

Sunday is 9/11

Saturday, September 10th, 2011 in About Me, Nature

September 11th is Sunday. We have a whole new generation that doesn’t know what 9/11 means. Teach them about those who serve for our country. Teach them about those wonderful firefighters that serve us here in America. Tell them of those who lost their lives. Celebrate by being with your family FREE and being blessed […]

End of Summer Fun List

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011 in About Me, Nature

Remember our Summer Fun List? Everything is checked off! Even though I wanted to rip it in teeny tiny little pieces a good 2 or 3 times during the summer, I would do it again. But next year I am going to do a Summer Play Hard List AND a Summer Work Hard Together list. […]

Running Away to Green Canyon

Friday, June 24th, 2011 in About Me, Nature

I love Logan. Yes I do, I do. We ran away to Logan during the summer and fall last year and it was time to do it again. I always know it’s time to run away to Logan when I start pulling my hair out here at home. I wish my husband really realized how low […]

The Great Salt Lake

Friday, June 10th, 2011 in Nature

On the way home from the post office one day last week we decided to go to The Great Salt Lake. Seems like quite a normal place to go next, right? You know, it was just an off day for me. I was feeling a bit blue and the remedy for me in those situations […]

Plant Prints (aka Plant “Fossils”)

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011 in Crafts, Friday: Play!, Nature

Last week (or was it the week before? everything is a blur) all the girls caught some sort of infection that weirdly came out through their eyes and ears. Of course they passed it down the line: Abby to Cameron and Cameron to Shae and probably to me too, but moms don’t have time to […]

Gold Panning with Kids

Thursday, May 19th, 2011 in Friday: Play!, Nature

We live in a city with close access to a couple canyons with a lot of mining going on. My husband loved the show on Discovery that just ended, Gold Rush Alaska. Not that he thinks he is going to make a living or even any money with gold, but he bought some supplies to […]
