Today all my boys except Kirk left for Scout Camp. I can't believe this day is here. It seems like yesterday when Ty and Kirk would just go leaving me behind with the rest of the boys. Now with everyone of Boy Scout age I get to go play for a week in at my sisters home in Utah. (Rachelle your day will come - I promise). See there is an upside to having all boys.
A week of going to the temple, shopping, Deseret Book,fun with my sister, exercising what more could I ask for.

Father's Day

Father's Day - June 21, 2009

We started Father's Day on Saturday this year. We wanted to make Dad a breakfast and with early Sunday meetings this makes it impossible so, we did it on Saturday instead. Ty and I hiked the "Bump and Grind" early in the morning while the boys were still sleeping and then came home. Kids started to wake up to the smell of bacon and french toast. (Sorry - I need to remember to get my camera out to take pictures). When I was shopping on Friday, I found that thick egg bread that is perfect for french toast. So much for the hike burning calories because we probably ate more than we burned Oh Well - we can do the hike again. After breakfast Dad got a nap and then off to the pool for a swim and then out on a date to see "Proposal". It was definitely a chick flick, but Ty enjoyed it also. It had some really funny parts. I so much appreciate that he will see any movie I want to see. Sunday morning Dad opened his gifts. - Cologne, Red Vine Licorice (his favorite), a new workout shirt and the new Glenn Beck Book "Common Sense" During the week I had asked the boys to write their Dad a letter to let him know how much they appreciate him. I think he enjoyed the letters over any other present. They really expressed their thoughts well and I am so glad I had them do this. (Of course they won't let me publish these) Ty, you are a wonderful husband and father whom I fall in love with more and more each day. I hope our boys will follow your example and be great husbands and fathers also. Thank you for all you do for us. We Love You!

Tribute to Fathers

My dad. Jerry Springer. I know, I know. How lucky am I to have a TV star as a Father. Not! My dad is the real Jerry Springer not the ridiculus looking, crude talk show host.
My dad passed away 6 years ago from cancer. He was a wonderful father to my two brothers and sister. He worked very hard for our family. He was so good at fixing anything. Even when something broke when I was married I would call my dad and have him come and help us fix it. He could fix any thing. He loved his grandkids, I think even more sometimes than his own kids. Like it should be. My dad was not a member of the church my whole life. He did support us in all we did. He came to all of our baby blessings and baptisms and cried right along side of us. I know something touched his heart. I also know that he has now accepted the gospel as we have down his work. Happy Father Day - Dad - I Love You and I miss you.

TY's dad - David Broadhead. Ty is the oldest of 4 siblings. What can I say about my father in law. He is a wonderful man who raised 4 great kids. Especially , the oldest - ha, ha. No really. I know that Ty is the man he is because of his dad and grandfather. I am so grateful for the influence they were in his life. Ty's dad also loves his grandkids very much. He loves to talk about anything with them and boy can Grandpa talk. He also loves to take them fishing. Even when they don't catch anything. Happy Father's Day - Dad B. We Love You!

I finally got my computer back tonight. I didn't realize just how much I depend on my computer. I not only send and write emails but sometimes it is my only way to communicate. Now I can get to blogging some more.

Computer Down

No - I haven't given up on this BLOG thing. It is just that my computer is down and I have to go to Ty's work even to read my email. It is a royal pain. I am hoping I did not lose everything after I ran a recovery program. I actually am having an expert look at it. So, I hope to be blogging again sometime this week.

New DO!

Today was haircut day. If anyone knows me very well they know I love doing new things to my hair. I decided I would do low lights instead of high lights to see if I liked it. I love everyone's hair that has taken the plunge and gone dark. (Shari,Meagan C.) I am just not that brave yet. So I did the safe thing and just added in some dark. I got home and Kirk says "Wow, you went dark". Cameron says "It looks soft" Nick and Jared didn't really care and then Ty got home and said "Nice Hair" He liked it so, I guess that's who I really need to make happy - Right? He was just happy I didn't cut it all off. I only cut off an inch. He loves my hair long. Actually all my boys like long hair on girls. Like Father -Like Sons I am just glad they actually noticed.

Starting to GET IT!

I have to give a BIG THANK YOU to Jennifer Franks who taught me a few things for my blog. She was over at Alysa's on Friday and Alysa and I were planning on getting together so she could help me. She said Jennifer is the real expert why don't you just sit down with her for a few minutes. I think we should maybe do a BLOG Enrichment so all those talented ladies that have BLOGS could share their talents with all of us dinosaur BLOGGERS. I finally have a cutsie background and I can add pictures. I also discovered my printer is a scanner also so I am soo excited to put on some old pictures. Jennifer, I couldn't have done this without you. -Thank you , Thank you.

Memorial Day
We hadn't planned anything and then we thought why don't we go to the beach. We love Mission Beach. We knew the McRae's were going to be there also so we headed out around 8:00 a.m. We go up 74 and there was no traffic. We thought WOW! nobody on the road. We reached the freeway and still hardly any traffic. We figured that either everyone left on the weekend to get here or we left early eough to miss the traffic. We arrived at the Beach. The parking for the beach was a zoo and we thought we are going to have to walk a mile from our car to get the beach. But, then we went to our trusty spot where we parked when a rented a Beach House for a week and sure enough someone was just leaving the parking lot just two spots back from the ocean. We lucked out. We set up our site right next to the McRae's stuff. They were walking around when we arrived. The weather was alittle chilly at first but then as the day went on it was perfect.. Cameron, Nick, Jared, Connor and Reed all went in the water to boogie board. They said the water was alittle cold at first and then you get use to it. We just relaxed and watched Bret build one of his masterpiece Sandcastles. If you haven't seen them they are amazing.
