A little belated...

Well- I've been meaning to get these pictures up... but I took a little break from the computer today. I was actually very proud of myself. You see... I'm a little addicted. Ok- I'm really addicted. I seriously get on facebook and my blog like 10 times a day! So today, I decided I was going to take control of the situation. I was amazed at how much I got done today! I cleaned, did dishes, played outside with Dallin most of the morning, went on a long walk with him, went to the grocery store and the post office, read in my book, read the paper, made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, muddy buddies, muffins, and pork chops, and went on another walk with Jeff. And there was more in between. I usually always have stuff to do like this, but today just seemed different. A lot of my time wasn't wasted like usual. Of course... I couldn't help but get on again tonight... but baby steps... baby steps...

We had a great weekend! My friends from high school- ok- more like elementary, came up on Saturday. It was so great to see Morgan and Mallory (I really love those girls), and meet Morgan's man Bryce. While the men were playing downstairs, us three were sitting upstairs- just talking about normal stuff... life in general, and Mal made the comment that the time had finally arrived that we had always talked about. The time where we sit around and talk about boring grown up stuff. Haha... Sadly- I understood what she was saying... but to me it wasn't boring! :) I love love love talking to other mommies about "the kiddlets", but to have a conversation with these two about things other than kids was sort of invigorating! Sorry it was kind of "boring" guys... but I loved it!
We also went on a little hike up to the "V" (a big rock with a "V" painted on it for "Valley High"). It was super windy at the top- but fun. Here's some pics...

(ahhh...)

(Our family)

(Hikin' up- LtoR- Dallin, Mal, Morgan, Bryce, and Jeff)

After they left, we met my family and some of the kids' friends down in Springdale at their park. Has anybody ever been there? It's such an awesome park!! It's been awhile since I've been there, and I loved it. It's so funny, because no matter what family function it is, my mom always has her C.D. player with some "tunes" (as she says) playing in the background. It just always adds so much fun, and is so relaxing. And the couple picnicking next to us enjoyed it too.
We Ate. We played on the playground. We played some kickball. It was a really fun evening. We were sad when the day had to end.

(So I know this picture is sort of creepy, but I wanted to put it on anyway)

(Dallin was up to bat! er... kick!)

This is also a pic I took of Jeff on Saturday morning being a
"manly" pyro

So again... We had a great weekend. And I also had a great day. I know I need to be better about being on here, so hopefully I'll keep it up.

Looks like a great weekend full of fun!! The winter is lasting way to long up here...I wish we could just get outside more often. He is going to work fulltime for company that does sprinkling systems and checks...it is only for the summer. He is excited though because he loves working outside!!

How fun, I haven't seen Mallory in SO long, how is she? You have such a cute family, is brooke the cousin that we would tend? I'm trying to remember but if so that makes me sick! haha, i hate being old! Hopefully I can see you when I come to santa clara, this will be my last babyless trip, crazy! Anyways I'm glad your addicted to blogging cause I am too, plus it's fun to stay updated!

I'm glad (I think) to see that the "Corry Pyro" quirk isn't just a thing for the men in the Bob Corry Family.

Fun pictures.

It's unfortunate that the picture taken of Bryce and me is so attractive of Bryce and so not of me. I've got nothin' on Marilyn Monroe when it comes to the windblown look. I'll try to work on that before we come to Orderville again...

That sounds like a really fun weekend. And I'm right there with you on being addicted to the computer. I get on here and facebook all the time too, but I am trying to be better about it too. It's hard!

It's so fun to get together with old friends! I think it is amazing to see the course that everyone's life takes and how we all grow and change! The pictures are way cute too, and your comment prompted a new post so check it out!

I'm with you on the "computer addict problem". I think I might be worse than you even. I, too, work on it. But I rarely am so successful as to only check it once! Loved seeing the pictures!

Thanks!
