We had big plans this Memorial Day to finish our shed. When we woke up to rain we couldn't help but be a little depressed that we wouldn't be able to make the progress we had hoped for. However, I have to look on the bright side... Maybe all this rain will help the astro turf on my porch to grow???

My friend Emily is getting ready to take her test to become a helicopter pilot instructor. She already has her private pilot's license. (I know, I have the coolest friend ever!) I was honored to be her first passenger last May. We went up for over an hour and she did awesome and the flight was so much fun!
Good Luck EM! I am so proud of you for following your dream! You are amazing and will make a fantastic instructor!

My adorable niece Taylor tried out for the Lehi Round-up rodeo queen today. I was proud to be part of her entourage (the hairdresser). Here are a few quotes from this morning.
Taylor: "I could never queen on regular basis."
Question: If you were on American Idol and could sing a song to your horse, what would it be?
Answer: "All I could think of was Love at Home"
Me: "Uh, that's a hymn."
Taylor: "Well, I've got my looks going for me!"
Shouldn't a queen have a servant to prepare the horses tail for her? Not this girl. She is a true, blue cowgirl!
After all of the preparation she was finally ready for the "modeling" portion. She also had to answer an impromptu question. She did a great job and looked beautiful! Missy made her skirt and it was amazing!
Horsemanship was next
And finally... she won! All Hail the Queen!

In addition to his good looks and sparkling personality, he is so very talented.
Scary "grainery" (or old cellar) behind our house that is 100+ years old. This picture was taken in the process of demolition.
He is now in the process of building a new shed, a.k.a. man heaven, to replace it. The new structure will be up and running in a couple weeks. For now it is a work in progress.
