What are friends for.

This is our NO KID weekend so we decided now that the snow has gone away it would be fun to go on a hike to the "spot" of Sam and I's first date and where Sam proposed to me. So our good friends Bart and Cheri and Sam and I went on a hike and had so much fun. Was very very pretty and lots of great memories...

This is the EXACT spot of Sam and I's first kiss!!! OOOOOOO Cute
Bart and Cheri Buttars, I don't know if you can tell but behind them the river comes out of the mountain.

So pretty today!


This part was a little scary. The river was way to high and it was going over the top of the bridge.. IT WAS SCARY. I know please don't lecture we know.. if one of us had fell in we would have been down the river...



I think this picture is so CUTE...

Thanks Bart and Cheri for a great day... Thank you Sam for all the memories we have every single day. I love you!!!

fish pond.... part 7 or 8 or 9....

This fish pond may be the death of Sam and I and actually many more creatures.
We bought new fish. 2 Koi and 2 placotomis (spelling?). In the morning one plactomis was dead but the other three fish are still kicking. They have lived for almost a week... woot woot!!!!
any how!!! Sam comes home from lunch yesterday and goes to the back yard and comes in and says..
THERE IS A BABY BIRD DROWNING in our pond...

OOOOHHHHH.... Sad.

So we got a net and fished the bird out and put a towel on our patio chair and got it warm.


We go back out about half hour later and the bird looks healthy and happy and jumps up and takes off... YEP WE ARE LIFE SAVERS!!!!

*side note.. I fell in the fish pond on Monday evening.. Well not fell in just my head... GROSS!!! Slimy fish pond water up my nose, in my mouth and fish scum hair!!!! YUCK....

Maverik Slaterville Grand Opening on Friday

Hi Everyone,
Friday we had an awesome afternoon. The Grand Opening at one of our new Maveriks was a lot of fun. Debbie and I ran up there for a few minutes to say hi and there was so much fun activity we had Cassidi take Brock out of school for us so we could take him up to have some fun.

The Monster Truck had a few cars to crush and right after he crushed them he turned a couple of fast cookies in the dirt and unfortunately, threw rocks and dirt EVERYWHERE. A few rocks just happened to find a brand new Ford F-350 and smashed the windshield and chip some paint on the hood and door. The guys stops his truck and creates a traffic jam..... steps out of his truck and starts yelling at the top of his lungs Mother eFers broke my windshield!!!!! Dropping the F bomb and cussing as loud as he could with families and kids everywhere. I ran over and gave him my name and number and calmed him down a bit and told him I would take care of it. Finally he left and unblocked traffic...lol I felt bad and luckily it didnt hit a kid or something but everyone got showered with dust so bad. I bet the neighbors really appreciated that.. haha
Well it was a great show anyway........

After we got showered with dust, Brock wanted to go climb the wall. Here is a video of him. He climbed all but one side and had a blast. So fun to watch and be around him. Thanks for coming Brock and great job!

We need to get in Harmony ole' pond!!!

Dear Fish Pond:
I think you and I need to come to some kind of understanding. Don't you? I don't know why I am having so much trouble, with you, when I am truly trying to make you healthy and happy. Maybe this will help you understand!

When we moved in this house one of my favorite things about the house was the fact that YOU were here. I loved the fish (notice past tense) that swam in your crystal clear water, the fountain that made the soothing sound of running water and all the beautiful plants around you. I was THRILLED when the previous owner told us that the fish has been alive for 9 years and that you were little to NO maintenance.

NOW I AM ASKING YOU.. WHAT THE HELL HAS CHANGED?????? SERIOUSLY, WHAT THE HELL HAS CHANGED?

I understand that winter was rough on you but I was so happy when all 3, 9 year old, fish had made it through the winter and looked some what healthy. Now, this seems to be where the problem started. Sam and I drained you, cleaned you, and slowly replaced your water. The beautiful Spring weather was just what you needed to get that crystal clear water and healthy again... WRONG... Within a week all three, 9 year old, fish.... DEAD... DEAD.... DEAD.. I thought it was because of an anti fungus treatment I had put in you and chalked it up as that.

Now, I know you can remember the next few weeks. I ran the fountain.. OFTEN, I slowly replaced some of your water, I cleaned the debris from the tree's out of you EVERY SINGLE DAY. I made Sam replace the filter on the fountain. I was excited to get more fish in you and excited to see you grow and prosper. ATLAS the day came that Cassidi brought you home 10 beautiful baby gold fish. I imagined these gold fish splashing around in your rock hidden corners, growing old, having grand children and making a wonderful life in your crystal waters. BOY WAS I WRONG!!! DEAD...DEAD...DEAD... Can you help me dear ole' pond.. Let me know what you NEED and desire from me....

Signed,
FRICKEN FRUSTRATED...

Sheridan Trip

Hello everyone,


It has been so long since I have blogged. We have been busy with spring time things. We will try to be better.
This last weekend we went to Sheridan to see my daughter Jordan walk in her graduation. She worked hard for that certificate and we are so very proud of her. Great Job!!!!!! We love you Jordan. 18 years old and moving on with life...... I feel old. You are a beautiful girl (woman) with nothing but blue sky ahead of you!!







Debbie and I love to go to Sheridan and see some of my friends as well. We hung out with a few and introduced Debbie to a few she hasnt met yet. We would go there more often if it wasnt for the 9 hour drive one way. Debbie was a trooper and gave up her Mothers Day to travel with me to Sheridan..... thank you honey.

My Beautiful Wife
Happy Mothers Day


Our Good Good Friends Steve and Des Marosok
