Memorial Day Weekend

Friday, after work, I was asked to help put up veteran plaques on the flags in the Herriman City Cemetery. It turned out neat.

After I was done, we were invited to stay the night in a cabin in Aspen Acers - just above Oakley (thanks Emalee) The kids had a blast and so did we. We went for a hike and a picnic and then had a yummy dinner - it was a lot of fun.

Then on Monday morning I took the family over to mom & dad's graves in Sandy - wow that place was busy. It gave me a good feeling to remember them and spend some time there with our family.

New Hairdo

Zac needed a hair cut - but he was having a hard time deciding whether or not to grow it out again. So, he asked me for a compromise - part of it long - and part of it short - here's what we came up with.

When You Set Your Mind to Something You Can Accomplish Anything!!!

Okay, just so you have a little background, Josh has never been able to ride a two-wheeler bike without training wheels before. He's tried many times and we've tried to encourage him to keep trying, but it just never happened. I personally think it just didn't interest him.
Well, this year Hayden asked me "Mom can you please have Dad fix the bikes so I can ride outside?!" So. . . with that, Jeffrey fixed both bikes. AND that was it - that was all it took. Josh was bound and determined that HE was going to ride bikes this year - nothing like a little brotherly competition - eh?
So. . . Josh hopped on the bike without training wheels

(and I'm a little embarassed to say, I thought - oh boy - here we go
this will be a long day, but he is going to do it.
This year Josh is going to ride a two-wheeler bike
Seriously - it's about time!!)

Well . . . without any hesitation, Josh got on that bike and took off. . .and . . . BAM - just like that! Josh was riding a bike!! He just got on and off he went zippin' around!! Holy Cow!! I couldn't believe it - I was so pleasantly surprised!!
Josh - you are awesome and you taught me a huge lesson today - when you set your mind to something you really CAN accomplish anything!! Way to go!!
So - here's the video to prove it!!
You'd never know he just learned yesterday!!
Wow!! Way to Go Bud!!
