Matt's Randevous

Matt took Garrett, my twin brother, out for a jaunt little ride in his truck the other week. This was Garrett's first ride with Matt. He said he only feared for his life a few times. Thos, Morgan and Lauren, Brett and HP actually went along too! They went somewhere I dont remember, up by four peaks I think! I was at a vball tournament, so who to better replace me that my own twin! They got stuck, Brett almost fell down the side of the mountain and HP was there the entire way to get everyone out! I love seeing Matt have so much fun with family.

Catchin Up!

Where does the time go? I always post a comment on my sisters' blogs saying they need to updated, then I look down at my last post - March 12th! I guess I need to take my own advice. Things have been going really well and not too much new to report on. A few weekends ago we went up to Show Low for Porter's bday and decided to take a detour on the way home. Instead of going to usual route - through Heber, Payson - we went through Young and Globe. It took 5 hours instead of the normal 3. It was long but beautiful and totally worth every minute of it. Matt and I headed up the front while Morgan and Lauren brought up the rear in their truck. There was some snow, but for the most part it was just beautiful. We stopped and took some pictures a long the way. The best was ending up on the backside of Roosevelt Lake looking a the dam. It was breathtaking. Unfortunately, our camera ran out of batteries, so there are no pictures of that. While on our voyage, I had to use the restroom - what else is new right? We stopped in Young to go to the bathroom and could not find an open store to go in. One gas station didn't have one, another one wouldn't let customers use it. Finally, out of nowhere, a beautiful structure appeared - a LDS church!! Hooray! Remember that Young doesn't have a stoplight, a Walmart (I don't consider you a city if you don't have a Walmart, even Safford has one)! But, it did have a church building. We pulled over and used the bathroom, what a relief! I did get a picture of that. Here are the pictures of our wonderful adventure.

And so it begins...

You know it's about to be summer (AZ doesn't do spring!) when you get into your car at 3 pm and you burn your hand on the stearing wheel!

You know it's about to be summer when you can't buckle your seatbelt b/c it is too blasted hot!

You know it's about to be summer when you have to change the comforter on your bed b/c the down one makes you sweat at night. Or you can do my fix, and just sleep on top of it with another blanket - extra squishy!

You know it's about to be summer when you can take a walk at 9:00 at night in shorts and a t-shirt!

So, as you can see there are some things I am really excited for in regards to the weather change and some things I am not excited for. There are lots of different things I want to do now the weather is a little warmer. I am excited!
