Where We've Been

I don't have pictures for the first 2 events. My camera decided to eat them. No clue why.

On June 19th, Chase and I went to see Disney's Up in 3D, it was a cute movie. Definitely not worth the price to see it in 3D though, nothing jumped out, and the glasses kind of made me sick. (I did take a picture of us before the movie started with the goofy glasses, so imagine that here.)

Next on the 20th we attended the Jordan river rotary park fundraiser and classic car show. My dad is a member of the rotary club, and asked us if we would like to go, we figured since he was paying for our ticket we would. We invited Chases cousin Parker along, he enjoyed it a lot more than we did. Again the camera was full of car pictures that Parker had taken, and my camera ate them. Camera must think that car pictures are tasty. MMMMM oily.

My sister Mindy and her family were in town visiting last week (June 23-27), so we spent most of the week with them just hanging out. We had a barbecue, went to the splash park, the Oquirrh Mountain temple open house, and the Lehi Children's parade
"Scruff" and I, in front of the temple. He's since had a haircut and shaved his face.

Last night (June 29th) we attended the Utah Symphony performance at Taylorsville Dayzz. Chase is currently enrolled in an intro to music class, and has to attend 3 classical, and 2 concerts of his choice before the end of the semester. This was the second concert we've been to in the last month. The first was Ryan Shupe and the Rubber Band at the Sandy Amphitheater in the rain. It was let's just say interesting.
The "normal" picture, after at least 5 goofy ones of Chase, this is what we got.
The Symphony conductor David Cho, he did a great job, but still needs to work on his English quite a bit.

In between all the hanging out with sisters, and concerts. I've been helping my mom with wedding cake central. A 5oth wedding anniversary cake for June 29th. A wedding cake for June 30th, and another wedding cake for July 1st. If you can even call the one for the first a cake, the whole thing is made out of cereal. Pictures to come soon.

Beautiful Hair

This last Friday night my sister Brena and I went up to our sister Shaundas house in Bountiful for a sleep over. We watched some chick flicks and went to bed. In the morning Brena was in the process of doing our niece Teagans hair. Camden was trying to help her mommy, but mommy told her to do Aunt "Shim's" hair. (She calls me Shim, quite funny because she knows my name starts with a K.) After Brena was done with Teagans hair, Teagan asked to do Brenas hair. Here's the end results. What do you think, do we have future stylists on our hands?

I think we could both use a few more barrettes in our hair.

Congratulations Graduate

It's been a long time in the making, and lots of blood sweat and tears on the part of Chases mom. But Chases little brother Connor finally graduated from high school last night. At the end of Connors junior year he was just going to give up and get his GED, he was so behind and needed to make up at least 6 classes. He went in to talk to his counselor about his choice and they came up with a different plan. Connor would stay in school and make up his 6 classes via BYU independent study packets, and lots of yelling from his mom. He finished up just in time.

The graduate heading up to get his diploma

With his parents. Nothing beats forced smiles from all.
Connor, no matter how much we all made fun of you (Because you really are a smart kid, just a little lazy), we really are proud of you. Good luck in college.
