KISS spotted in Washington

The rumors are flying that the rock group know as KISS was spotted in Moses Lake just recently. A photographer was able to catch these great shots of the group giving a very private show. It seems that the members are as youthful as ever..although a little shorter than we remember..but still rocked the roof off of a local neighborhood home. It was said that many locals could hear "Rock and Roll all night" echoing throughout the night. What a treat to have been there to watch this fantastic show!!!!

Let's play "21"!!!!

I know I am playing catch up but I couldn't live with myself if I didn't write about a special trip. Ken and I had planned to take this trip last year.. our 20th anniversary but a dear friend of mine died so it was postponed until this year. We took 4 whole days away.. ferried over to San Juan Island (north of Seattle) ..drove around the Island..went whale watching and ate too much great food!! We stayed at a cute bed and breakfast that was very relaxing. It was a wonderful anniversary. I feel so blessed with a great husband who loves to be with me and I with him. He is truly my BESTEST friend...all my love honey!!

10 temple trip

Every summer we take our vacation visiting my family in Utah. This year was no different. We spent most of the time in St George with my mom...swimming, shopping and hiking the red rocks. Then we headed up north and had a barbeque with the rest of the family. It was a wonderful vacation.. fun to see family that we hadn't seen in awhile..everyone's growing up so fast!! Thank goodness I still have a few nieces and nephews shorter than me!! Before we left St George, we decided to try and visit 10 temples on our way home...so we started with St George and ended with Columbia River. It was fun to see each one..some during the day and some at night...we all had our favorites..(mine is the Bountiful). We are so blessed to be able to have all these temples..they are so different but all so beautiful!! It was a fun trip as always!! Thanks Family!!!!

Laughter and Tears

I just recently got called to be in the Stake YW Presidency. I was and still am a little weary about the calling.. still trying to figure out what I am suppose to do..to be honest I feel a little inadequate next to these ladies. I was lucky enough to be put in right before camp. I had gone to camp as a girl and once as a leader a few years ago but this was completely different. It was such a wonderful experience..full of laughter and tears..both sides of the spectrum. I enjoyed the leaders I worked with so much and admired the relationships they have with each other and the girls. I felt like I was just following them around for a week and they were great about it.
I think our Young Women today are so great. They are so much more ahead of the game then I was at their age. I so enjoyed the testimonies they gave.. they are already so strong and know what is right. I learned a lot that week from them. We also had great fun..some good pranks and good skits.
The week also gave me time to remember what is important in our lives. So much of our time is spent with 'stuff' .. 'stuff' that we don't need to worry about or spend our time on. I feel exhausted and renewed at the same time. Thanks to all that made that week great for all!!!!
