Bass Fishing Trip

Last weekend my husband and I took a quick trip to St. George in Southern Utah.  One of the reasons we went was to take two of our grandsons for a Bass Fishing Trip!

I don’t know a whole lot about it, other than the fact that they were very pumped about going!

They were entered into a Bass Fishing Tournament at Sand Hollow!bass fishing trip Continue reading

Pioneer Days Celebration

Here in Utah it is a holiday weekend…it is Pioneer Days, our state holiday!  Celebrating when the pioneers first arrived in the Salt Lake Valley.  We had our Pioneer Days Celebration by spending a couple of days at our cabin and then up at our hunting property!  We have added a pavilion on the property with a fire pit, so of course we had to roast hot dogs and make smores!July 2016-003 Continue reading

 My husband and I had two of our grandsons staying with us for a few days while their parents were away on a business trip.  They were so much fun and they were soooo good!  I kept commenting how well they got along…unlike my two oldest boys, when they were that age…that could not be in the same room for 15 minutes without a problem!  :)cute grandkidsAren’t they a couple of heart-breaker boys!

April Conference Snack Tags

This weekend is the General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints  (the Mormons).  I love conference weekend and look forward to it every six months!  For those of you that want to know what conference is all about…you can check it out here.

I love conference weekend, because we can stay home and watch it on TV (in our jamies, if we choose to!)  Sometimes we have all of our families together and sometimes my husband and I just watch it together.  But there is always a great spirit in our home and I love the messages that are taught and the things that I can learn!

I have already downloaded and printed my conference packet from Sugardoodle and I have my conference notebook ready to go.. to take notes…doodle…and just enjoy the weekend!

It is always a must to have some great treats or food while watching conference! :) 

So I decided that I would make some fun tags to go along with your conference goodies!  These are fun to pass along to your VT sisters,  or to make for your family, or friends!  You can tie them onto individual serving size packages for everyone, or make one big package for the whole family!

Arby’s NEW Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich

This post brought to you by Arby’s. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was given a gift card from Arby’s to try their new Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich, so I decided that I would make a lunch date with one of my son’s and we could try out this new sandwich!  We went to an Arby’s that was close to his work and we enjoyed a fun time together, laughing and just spending time together!  It was so great!  Sometimes as an empty nester mom, I don’t get a lot of one on one time with my own children, so this was a treat!  Thanks Arby’s.  Do any of you have someone you need to connect with?  Try out this new Smokehouse sandwich with someone you love!

Fishing Adventures

 Oh, what do you do in the summertime, when all the world is green?
Do you fish in a stream, or lazily dream on the banks as the clouds go by?
Is that what you do? So do I!

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 245

Last week my husband told my oldest grandson and his brother that he would pay them $5 each to be fishing guides for a couple of the other grandkids.  They gladly accepted and so we were able to have a great fishing adventure and I did not even have to touch a worm or a fish!  :)
