Free Paint

Free is good, right?

I got this tip from my friend. Thanks Brittany!

Glidden is giving away a free quart of paint. Any color you want. While supplies last. Click on the link below to sign up.

I went with the color Arctic Blue. It is for our downstairs bathroom.

Thought I'd pass on this cool deal to all my peeps. ;)

Again! :D

Yep, we are going to see Blue October in concert once again. Yippee! They are coming around our area on their tour one more time. This time in San Jose. And, funny coincidence, one of their opening bands this time, is Switchfoot. Who we saw in concert, in May, with some friends.

Here we are at the Switchfoot concert; Janeece, Mike, Dan, and I.

The Switchfoot concert was a lot of fun. It was nice to have a "bigger" name band right in our city. Hope it leads to more good bands coming our way.

Big Fish

While at Lake Powell, Dan let Dallin fish a little while we were at the docks. Dallin was able to catch a big carp. Everyone came out to watch Dallin reel it in, and make sure he didn't fall into the water. lol

Gma & Gpa making sure Dallin Doesn't Join the Fish for a Swim

After the catching fun, the carp was set free, back into the water. Bye bye fish!

Lake Powell Trip

Our family reunion on Lake Powell back in April was fun. We had some interesting weather with 55 mph winds one day and chilly weather, but over all it was a good time. Here are some pictures from the experience.

Crazy hat time, with Auntie Lindsay and Cousin Makenna

We rented a power boat, but it was too cold to water ski :(

Yummy BBQ ribs and other tasty things for dinner

Just chillin'

Some games to pass the time through the bad weather

The Next Tiger

The kids have fun "golfing" with the real golf clubs their Uncle Adam got them for Christmas last year. Notice the fancy hats, and the plastic cup hole? There are nothing but true professionals here. ;D

A Dream Soon Realized!

Dan and I have been huge AC/DC fans for years. One thing we've wanted to do was go to their concert at least once in our lives. Something I didn't think would ever happen. That is until I got an e-mail from Ticketmaster informing me that AC/DC just announced a tour date in a city near us.

I bought tickets Saturday, the second they went on sale. Yippee! We're so flippin' excited! :D

Monster Trucks

Back in March we took the kids to a monster truck rally. This was our first ever experience. It was fun to go to as a family. Dallin LOVED it!

The trucks were loud, so we bought the kids these nifty ear muffs they were selling. They look like truck wheels.

There were thrills, spills, and one cool Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

We were rooting for Gravedigger. He won, woo hoo! Everyone in our seat section ended up winning coupons for free burgers, since "our" truck won the match. Go free burgers! lol

Big Bad Kinder Grad

Sierra is officially no longer a kindergartner. Two weeks ago was the kids' last day of school. And on said day, all the kindergarten students put on a performance for their families.

It was adorable. They sung some of their favorites songs, that they learned throughout the year.

Then there was refreshments for the kids and families. Big, yummy cookies and lemonade.

After that Sierra said goodbye to friends and her teacher Mrs. Lopez.

Mrs. Lopez was a wonderful teacher. Sierra is really going to miss her.

Now it is on to 1st grade for Sierra and 3rd grade for Dallin!
