Time flies when your having fun!

Hey guys! We have been so busy, and sad to say haven't taken too many pictures! I am waiting to get my new camera ANY DAY! ... then there will be more pictures than you probably want to look at!

Seeing this picture makes you understand why I need a new camera! This is Bryson on Pin's and needles WAITING for BYU to get their rear in gear and actually give us a good football game. TOO bad they never followed through!

My parents came to visit the weekend of Oct 10-12. We didn't do too much other than visit Adam's job site. I think my parents were quite shocked of how modern the resort it. It is VERY different, but cool and unique in it's own crazy way. Adam has been going to work at 5 am and getting home at 6 pm every day! This schedule might kill him, either that or make more grey hairs grow :)

Bryson and I drove home with my parents to Orem so I could work for a week and they could hang out with their only grandchild that lives outside of Utah county. I went to Park City Wednesday night for a convention and ran SMACK DAB into Theron Anderson and Josh Gibbons. They are sales reps for Quickutz, who was putting on the convention. It was great to reminisce about high school. Some people just never change! They are as hilarious and awesome as they were in high school. I slept overnight, went to the outlet malls ... man I miss that, and headed home Wed. night after teaching classes. (check out my personal blog for more info!)

Thursday we had HUGE news! BRYSON CUT HIS FIRST TOOTH! YEAH!!!!! Now we are just waiting for tooth #2. Mommy and daddy are REALLY ready for a good night sleep again.

Thursday I had my first CK Photoshoot for the magazine. It looks like my first Article will come out January 2008!

Adam joined us Thursday night. We enjoyed the day together in Salt Lake all day Friday doing lots of activities such as: seeing our Life Insurance agent, going to Pine needles, going to Ikea & Cabellas (Bryson's favorite) and even eating at our favorite Asian diner ... Pei Wei's! Adam joined my dad and brother at Riverside Country Club to do a little golfing on Saturday, while me, Bryson, and my mom went shopping!

After a week of being away I was ready to be back in my little house and some sort of schedule again, but as we were getting ready to pull away to go home, both of my parents were in tears, having to watch us go! MAN is it hard to live away and not get to watch Bryson grow. We sure are excited to someday go back to Utah.

This week hasn't had too much to report on. We do have the fall festival this weekend in Page, so I will be sure to post AND take pictures! Until then ... have a good one!

What we have been up to!

Last weekend we went with our friends Brock and Krista to an awesome restaurant we haven't tried. It tends to be on the higher priced restaurants in Page, and who wants to spend more money when you have Fiesta Mexicana (Okay, that is Adam's philosophy ... Mandy believes differently and can barely choke down Fiesta Mexicana anymore).

It is called "The Point Restaurant" at Antelope Point Marina on Lake Powell. It is a floating restaurant and so you have to take a golf cart down to the Marina and they drop you off. We had the Prime Rib and it was SO good! The service wasn't great but it's because it is the off season. COME BACK TOURISTS!!!!!!

Bryson came with and we even dressed him in his new outfit ... Doesn't he just look like a little man! He was such a good boy and behaved the entire time!

On Saturday we went down to the Lake for the annual Scout Cardboard boat races. WHAT A RIOT! These boys get into this kind of thing big time! Adam however "helped" by driving around the Wave runner to make sure no boys drowned. We then went out to Adam's job site. It is coming along, but there are lots of hold ups because it is so remote! We are just looking forward to the finished product!

Last but not least, YEP got set apart as YW president this week ... The girls are EXTRA special, but I am extremely overwhelmed. We told them we may only be here another year at the most, but they still wanted to call me. SO if anyone has great ideas, please feel free to pass them along!
Hope you are all well!

PS ... I do update my new blog more frequently, so for all you complainers ... come on over. I will post different things on this blog, including more of the creativity side of what I do each day!
