Thank you so much Burt for spending your time and talents in helping us in so many ways.

Evan had a blast driving the tractor

3 of our neighbors showed up at 7:30
Of course they were 2 hours early but the two of them finished the front and side yard in one hour. We had to send them home so that the rest of the group coming at 9:30 would have something to do. :o)

Taking a break

After our yard
was done, we went next door to the church parking lot to help my brother load up his grass pallets for the trip to Bountiful.

A good days work

Cody's B-day

Cody turned 14 on March 5th but because it was a cold spring, he wasn't able to have the party he wanted at that time. He wanted to go to Boondocks so we had to wait for warmer weather, so a couple of weekends ago, he invited his cousins, Eric and Kody for a sleep over. They stayed up all night playing video games and had a blast.

The following morning it was difficult for them to get up but they were excited to go to the park and have a ton of fun!!

Then came cake decorating and eating time. Just as a side note... In the picture where they are getting ready to light the candles, there are the two boys, Cody and Kody. Kody is on the right and he is only a few months older than my Cody. Kody is 14 and at 6' 3", towers over their other cousin, Eric, who is 16.

Fire Ride 2009

Yesterday Evan & I, along with some of our good friends went on the Fire Ride that consisted of approximately 250 motorcycles. We started out at the Bountiful Fire Station with a nutritious breakfast of donuts.

The noise of all of the bikes together, was incredible!!

We were escorted by a police bike as we left the Bountiful fire station and went to the airport. At the airport we watched as they lit the practice plane on fire and put it out.

Of course they couldn't resist spraying the bikers (fellow fire fighters). We had some very soggy bikers, but we were lucky and stayed clear of the water.

This is our group....

Julie, Evan, Guy, Angela, Dennis, Kim, Amy and.... hey what happen to Tyler???

We stopped for lunch at the Willard Bay area Fire Station.... yummm and boy did my butt need a rest.. OUCH!! :o) Those of you that have ridden on the back of a bike for an hour at a time will understand. Major TB!!!

Hi Angela and Guy!!!
Oh, so here's Tyler and Amy.... :o)
Dennis and Kim bought a new bike just for this ride. :o)
We had the time of our lifes!!!!! I can't wait to do it again next year!!
