Skydiving with Brian

What a group. Brian and his YSA group decided to go skydiving. I just happened to be in Vegas on my way home from work and thought I would stop by and watch the event. Wow! It was so exciting. I got to watch the whole thing from start to finish. The group had a blast and I would think they might go for that one again. His YSA group is really into doing things.....exciting things.

Can you tell which one is Brian?

And there he is, he lived!

Marathon Men

So, Micah and Brian entered themselves in a 5K marathon over the weekend. It was fun to go cheer them on. Micah waited patiently for the draw of the raffell and won......nothing. Brian wondered why they called his name and then found out he placed second in his age group.....(out of all 2 of them his age). Over all, we all had fun watching and waiting. It was a beautiful day.


The grandkids!

Yes, I had a blast with all 6 of my little ones. The babies are a year to a year and a half in age. Check out little Eleanor saying Grandma to her Grandma (me).

Park City Utah

So we went to Park City for some fun in the sun. When we got up there, it was beautiful. Lots of things going on there. We went and road the ski lift up to the top of the mountain and then rode the bobsleds down the hill. Brian also did an additional ride on the zip line. It was fun. I had all the grandkids there. What a joy.

Glassy Lake Water


Yes, I had to do it! I had to go down to the lake with Brian and take my picture in the lovely, glassy, warm, bath-tub like water. What do you think? I am thinking where the heck is my boat and why aren't I in it? That's what I think.

Crystal Clear Lake Water

Well, I had a wonderful day today. We got up early, hit the lake with the sea doos and had a wonderful few hours. The air temp was around mid 80's and the water temp was low 80's. The water was crystal clear. You could see all the way to the bottom and that was out quite deep. It is a great way to start your day. Everyone should have the chance to start their day this way.

Yep, that rainbow is a beautiful one. It was incredibly dark and it had a second one with it almost as dark, but I couldn't get to my camera in time to catch it all. So, along with the rainbows came the loss of our business and the loss of my job as a bus driver. Well, business is slow, thus the plant closed. The contract with the bus company was not renewed, so the route that I drove was dismissed....and so am I. Hmmmm....now what to do! Time will tell.

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Yep, that is the bus I am driving now. I was offered another job doing private tours and am really enjoying it. I had to give notice at my other job and any of you who know me, that was not an easy task. I liked my job. But this is a better opportunity for me to grow and improve. And I am enjoying having time in the middle of my day...home! Wow, now that is something! I have learned a lot at the previous job. I thank them for that! I hope to move forward and learn and enjoy this job just as much.

Hot Summer Days



Yep, it is summer and I am so excited. I have been taking the boat and sea doos out a bit. Only problem is I need a day off from my days off. Hmmmm!

Me


Well, I was goofing off with my camera and took a picture. I like it. So, I am sharing it with everyone.

Well, here it is, we went to Leo Carrillo Beach over spring break. We had a wonderful time. I loved spending time with all my little grandchildren. Every morning I had some little ones on my bed. Caroline spent the night with Grandma a couple of times. Now....here is the down side. Half the family showed up with colds, the other half with the flu. Go figure....it is now making its rounds. I held out for a week before getting sick. I am slowly getting back to normal. But I gotta tell ya, I loved every minute I got to spend with the little ones and my own children (all grown up now) as well. I love my family. I love the beach.

Ouch!

That is right, Ouch! !!! Yep, I was up at work last week-end and it snowed. Now that was not the Ouch, although it might have been for many of the visitors. But the point I wanted to make was that it was very cold. Ok, so then I thought I would try popcorn instead of cookies and go figure, my back tooth breaks completely off. Yep, swallowed the whole thing. But the cave-in on the tooth hurt soooooo very bad, and then the cold wind blew in and wowwwie! Pain, pain, pain! So, I call the dentist and they can't take me for 4 days. Oh my. I survived. But man did that wear me out for the week and completely through the weekend. Especially since the novacane did NOTHING, for me, and that is a first. Wow, what a painful week, and that is not even going into the issues at work. Sometimes it's a mixed bag. ~~Kathy~~

I Did It ! ! !


Yes, I finally did it! I walked on the sky walk at Grand Canyon West. I have been working there since August 2008 and had not yet walked the walk. Well, it was not as scary as I thought it would be. I think I handled it very well as you can see from the picture. That is me sitting on the glass bridge looking down at the canyon. I loved it, but it is a little nauseating looking through the glass straight down. Oh well, that could just be my stupid stomach also.

Yes, We went to the Bluebird Mine again. Had a wonderful time there. It was great to be out on the quad again.

Sweet Becky

Sweet Becky
Becky is no longer with us here on this earth. She died December 9, 2005 from brain trauma. She was hit by a car while crossing the street. She lived for 10 days. During that time she called everyone and told them how much she loved them all. We thought she would make it. Sadly she slipped back into a coma and died. She touched many lives and we treasure the times we had with her, especially those last days in the hospital. Her organs live on in 5 other people, one of them was a 3 month old baby. Another a young man 6 months younger than her. He brought her heart home. He came to see us last summer. Becky I am sure would have wanted to do this. We will always miss her.
