Although I don't enjoy winters all that much here in Utah, there are definately some fun things to do to pass the time. Last weekend we went sledding with Ryan's sisters Kim and Brenda and their kids. It was the perfect day and the kids loved it! Those of you who know Allie know that she is not the biggest daredevil but by the end of the day she was going down one of the hills by herself! It was a proud moment of mine.

Ryan brought his snowboard for him and his nephew Cameron to use...

By the end of the day a couple of our tubes had popped but we had just as much fun sledding down on our butts

Little miss Allie going down all by herself! It took all day for her to do it but she did! I'm so proud of her :)

As many of you know, my sister's husband Joseph and his partner Colton opened up a Restaurant in Orem last year called Pizzeria 712. This past week was the Salt Lake Magazine 2009 Dining Awards and the restaurant was nominated for Best Restaurant and THEY WON!!! We are so proud of them and what they have accomplished. If you're in Orem, don't forget to stop by and have a meal, I promise you will LOVE it. Great job guys!!

Ryan gave me Flowerbomb for Valentine's favorite perfume. It's yummy. I suggest you try it out the next time you are at Nordstrom. Thanks babe!

Is anyone else tired of winter?

I am SO tired of winter. Tired of the snowstorms and the 30 degree weather. I was organizing some pics today and found a bunch from last summer. I cannot wait for these days to come again in just a couple months!

We love the Summer parades

Bets and I...Can't wait for the boat again!
