Swimming At Grandma's

Pardon the phone pictures but I didn't have my camera with me. What's wrong with me?!

SCARY!



On my way home from work, this rolled over literally about 10 feet to the side and front of me! I have never been so scared for my life. I saw it rocking back and forth and then the truck from behind was fish tailing. I had to slam on my breaks to miss being hit. Talk about near death experience!

This is what the news said:

A tractor-trailer rollover has forced the Utah Highway Patrol to close all but one lane on northbound I-15 near Center Street in North Salt Lake.

UHP trooper Cameron Roden says a semi truck was hauling a 210,000-pound vessel, or pipe, while another semi truck was pushing it from behind.

As the driver of the first truck attempted to merge onto I-15 from I-215, the back of the trailer slid and tipped over.

Because of the size of the load, troopers expect the northbound lanes to be closed for several hours.

Off to SchOoL!

My little baby girl started KiNderGaRten today! I can't believe this day is already here. I didn't even cry! I know. I know. I couldn't believe it myself!
It just seems like yesterday I was in the hospital having this precious princess. She was so excited to start today. She had her clothes and backpack set out on the floor ready for her in the morning. Tony gave her a beautiful father's blessing last night and of course I cried like a baby.
She has a couple of kids from the ward in her class, Eli and Brevan. Our babysitter's little girl, McKayla is also in her class so I think that made it a bit easier.
Good Luck on the beginning of a great journey my Principessa! I love you so MUCH!

Fireworks

July 24th is a state holiday here in Utah. Unfortunately, this year it came on a Thursday. So I had to go back to work on Friday. Oh well. We still had fun. Our good friends and neighbors, Bryan and Stacie, invited us over to their house for a BBQ and fireworks. The girls had a great time with their friends.

Girls Night Out





Kenslee earned herself a night out with mommy. She has been wanting to get a pedicure for quite some time now. I couldn't complain with that! I'll take a pedicure any time. They were so nice. They gave her a manicure at no extra charge!

I Think I'm In Love

How adorable is this? I love the colors. Although it would not match anything in my house, it is still fun and puts me in a good mood! I can always dream right?
Ah! And then there's the fabric! Oh me oh my it's cute!

Hiding Place

I would have given my right leg for one of these fun tents when I was little. Ok, maybe not but I remember making little huts out of blankets and chairs and thought it was the coolest thing.

Suckers!

Not too sure what happened here!



I have never made candy before but have always wanted to try it. Well, today was the day. Another blogger had a great recipe for some suckers and thought, "why not?" The girls were pretty excited. They turned out so good! I was surprised they turned out to be honest. I didn't have a thermometer so I was a little nervous.
