Family Reunion

This weekend Logan and I attended a Family Reunion for my Great Grandparents on my Dad's side. It was in Cameron which two things were going to happen, One it would be EXTREMELY hot and Two it would very WINDY! This two things did happen! Thank goodness we did not have a ton of rain that would have been very messy!

There were plenty of things going on the whole weekend, Games, Horse races, and contests. It was a ton of fun. While we were there Logan watched two Lamb get butchered, and once they were done he had what my Dad called Monster Mash. Which was a mixture of all the body organs, sautéed with some seasonings. Logan surprisingly said it was better then what he has had before. I did not even go near it! My family loved that he was so up for trying it.

The second highlight of the trip was the hula hoop contest. Logan and I were hula hooping and I must admit he is almost a pro!

We had a ton of fun and enjoyed the whole weekend with the family and together! I am so happy Logan was able to meet a lot of extended family and that they were able to meet my wonderful Husband!

Friday Night Date

Last night Logan and I went to see Tyler Wilkinson speak. On Sunday in Relief Society I heard that the Cottonwood Stake was having a Youth Conference here in Flagstaff, and they had Tyler Wilkinson an Inspiration speaker ,fly in from Utah to speak to the Youth. All the Adults in the stake were also invited to go and listen if they wanted to. So I told Logan about this guy who was coming to speak, not knowing anything but he was suppose to be good.
So we went to see Tyler Wilkinson speak, he talked about his Accident and how he was injured in a car accident when he was eighteen after sign a double scholarship for Baseball and Football in college. He was left a quadriplegic. He spoke about the fun "rides" life can have and the "bumps" that can bring you down. He was very spiritual along with inspiring.
Logan knew his story sounded familiar but could remember if it was the same person he remembered watching a movie on. So after he spoke and the Fireside was released Logan went to shake his hand. While he was, he saw some young boys wanting his autograph. So when we walked to the car, we 'Google'd' Mr. Tyler Wilkinson, and we found that he was the guy Logan remembered. The movie 'Tyler, a real hero' is about Tyler of course but told more about his life before his accident and then reflected on his "new world" he was now living in.
After Dinner with my Mother , we went back to our apartment we watched the movie on You Tube. (it showed in 7 parts) It was a very good movie, it was very well told and very moving. It was a wonderful way to end the night!

Fourth of July Weekend

It was a very busy weekend for both Logan and I. Logan had his last day at Sedona Pines. I on the other hand had to work the Saturday which meant we were not able to do any traveling.
So our plans included:
  • Watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. We loved the movie!
  • Walking downtown for the First Friday Artwalk, the weather was absolutely wonderful!
  • Going to the Art in the Park and watching some of the Parade, the parade lasted an hour and half so we did not stay to watch it.
  • Thai food at Swadee Thai, it was delicious, but very spicy!
  • Finished the Mighty Ducks Trilogy
  • Driving to Cottonwood to see Jared Katie and the Family, plus watching the Fireworks from their backyard.
It was a wonderful weekend, Logan and I were able to spend our First Fourth of July together as a married couple.

Missouri Trip

Logan and I returned from our wonderful trip to Missouri on Tuesday Morning. It was just a weekend trip but way worth it! We knew since Logan was starting a new job we would have a harder time traveling back to see the family. So we decided to go when it was easier for us.
We left for Phoenix Thursday evening our flight was not until Friday, but instead of rushing to catch our plane we decided to take our time. We stayed the night at the Hotel Valley Ho, it is a wonderful property we would recommend it! The flight to Missouri was 2 hours and 15 mins, very short compared to the 18 hour drive. Upon arriving Reagan and Sterling (Logan's twin and his Cousin) picked us up at the Airport, we raced to Reagan's apartment to pick up his wife and Sterling's Fiancée. We all then went to watch Grown Ups, which is a very good movie we were all laughing.
The next morning Logan's Dad came to pick us up, he was going to drive us to the Bliss House in Dadeville. Along the way we were able to stop at the Jeweler's house,Brother Adams, had made my Engagement ring and we had ordered a band to complete my set. So we were able to watch him sauder the two bands together. We enjoyed a wonderful Breakfast with the family, for our afternoon trip we decided we would drive to the Osceola Cheese Factory. They sell more than 150m different types of cheese! Logan and I had been to a smaller cheese store so we knew our favorite was the Mild Buffalo Wing Cheddar. Both To and from Osceola we were able to stop at some Amish stores, they were very interesting, I had never been to one so I was shocked the with the items they sold and made. After returning to Dadeville we all went to the Dadeville Cafe! it is the only restaurant in Dadeville, they also make the shirt which read Dadeville Population 224.
Sunday we spent plenty of time with the Family!

The Osceola Cheese Mouse
Monday was the most exciting day we were able to go to Silver Dollar City in Branson. Its a Theme Park set in the 1800s, so they have Mining themed rides, Country themed food. It was a ton of fun! Our flight back to Arizona was in the evening so were we were able to enjoy almost a whole day with the Bliss's.

I loved Missouri it was so green, the Family was so wonderful, and it was a ton of fun, Logan and I had the best trip yet! I still don't think i will move there, but i love visiting.

Logan's new job!

Logan will be starting his new job as a Teller at Bank of America on Tuesday July 6th! We are both so excited, Sedona Pines was a very long drive, But now Logan is here in town so work will be less of a trouble.
