Happy Memorial Day! It is finally beautiful weather here on Utah. Today I should try to accomplish some yard work, but here it is almost 11 and I am in bed writing. Lily had a hair cut yesterday, so I am cuddling with her today. Apparently it was another traumatic experience. Lynden cut it while I was at my uncle’s house. Lily is milking it for all it is worth and getting sympathy and treats a plenty.
Memorial Day as we all know and understand is an important reminder of what the men and women before us (as well as presently) gave up so we could live in a better country. Additionally, for so many of us, the weekend is used to visit the graves of loved ones we have lost. In Carbon County a group actually takes time to mark every grave. There are so many that are forgotten and this is a wonderful gesture.
Like so many others this weekend also signifies the end of Spring and beginning of Summer. Although we do not have any major summer plans I am looking forward to the warmer weather. So before I officially welcome Summer, I wanted to take a few moments to look back at the wonderful Spring of 2017.

This year Western and Eastern Easter were the same day. Could these always fall on the same day? It makes life easier. As per the usual tradition, the family went over to my brother’s Godparents house to celebrate.
Shelby graduated at the end of April. We have become so close this past year, and there was no way Lynden and I wouldn’t celebrate this accomplishment with her.
Look, it is proof I have been outside. I am ashamed to admit that I have not been nearly as active this year.
Beautiful right? Okay it is a bit much, but this is the first one I have ever made. The other ones do look better. If you are interested in one, check out my store on Etsy!
Last weekend my sister, neice and me had a girls night in Grand Junction. This aunt caved and bought Isabella her first doll. Overall the trip was a success and we even made it to our favorite restaurant for brunch.
This weekend Mama Rose and I went to Orem for the day. Although I missed my sister and the baby, it was an enjoyable trip with my mom. We stopped at Kohls, ate at Spaghetti factory, bought some decorations at Tai Pan, and most importantly bought Chalk Paint!
Okay, so I intended to share more photos but it looks like I had very few to share. As I mentioned above, I have not been nearly as active this spring. My goal is to become more active in the summer. Additionally, I am hopeful that we will go one a few hikes during the upcoming months! In the meantime though, I have several posts prepared to share. Happy Summer Ya’ All!
