book club.

A friend of mine in Heber asked me if I wanted to be part of a book club.  It's 11 girls from the community and we each take a month to select a book for everyone to read and then host a dinner party.  I have never been party of a book club before, I am very excited about our current group of girls.

Tonight was our first dinner party.  We read 'The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  Laura made homemade potato soup and salad and she bought Kneaders bread (!).  For dessert she make a chocolate cake and a pie!  So good.  Thanks Laura.

I am giving this book three stars out of five.

Truman had his first {and hopefully his last} suppository this week. He bowl movements have been progressively getting further and further apart until this week he went 7 days without a 'poop'. The doctor had me give him a liquid glycerin suppository. It worked like a charm. I am hoping this won't become a weekly routine. Does anyone know of anything else that works on babies for this problem?

friday flashbacks.

Quinn Family | May 1996

Camille + Tiffany + Anthony
Nathan + McKay + Dallin

Simons Family Summer 1996

Gregg + Lynn + Bob
Becka + Krista + Brad + Tara

When I saw that the Simons Family had a picture taken with the classic bright colored GAP Polo's on I knew I had to find the Quinn Family photo that was similar. I was surprised to learn that they were both taken in the Summer of 1996. I guess we know what the style was then! How many other families have photos like this from 1996?

baby shower.

We have been having lots of fun girl time with Krista in town {Gregg's younger sister} She is expecting TWIN boys at the end of the year so we surprised her with a baby shower at P.F. Changs tonight.

Sisters! Krista and Tara.

This was my favorite gift. Shirts that say "my dad drives a fast car" Matt works for NASCAR.

I went and saw this movie last night with some girlfriends. I did not have very high expectations and I ended up really liking it.

I have one comment about the Heber movie theaters.

They are Nazis about not allowing you to bring in your own food and drink. I had about 2 ounces left in my water bottle and the gentleman who sold me my ticket said "can I throw that away for you". Laura still managed to smuggle some peanut M&M's in her purse. We were reaching into her purse all night!

They do give cool change. I got a $2 dollar bill and a .50 cent piece.

small fry.


Ever since Truman had his 4 month check up and we found out he was only in the 5% for his weight Gregg has been calling him 'small fry'

This is a picture of my cousins kid Dallin, and Truman this weekend. Would that be Truman's second cousin? Or, first cousin once removed? I am not sure. Dallin is going to be tall - wait, he already is tall.


Dallin is one month older then Truman and SO cute}

labor day.

Last year for the 24th of July we hiked Bald Mountain in the Uintahs. We finally made it up Bald Mt. this year for Labor Day. It was great weather and great company. {we took our picture in this same place last year, click here to see it}

We hiked with my mom and dad, little brother McKay, cousin Jake and his wife April and son Dallin, my uncle Joel and cousin Anne.

my best friends wedding.

Julio and Jessica Silva

Jessica {Rockwood} Silva.
Jess and I have been friends forever. Our family moved to Park City when I was about three - and she was my first friend. We have remained good friends for all these year. The thing I love about Jess is that we could go months {or even years when I was on my mission} without talking and then when we do see each other again we just pick up right where we left off.

Jessica's sibling's {Melanie, Lindsey, Julio, Jessica, Parker, Emily}

She had a beautiful wedding at Rotary Park in Park City followed by a dinner and reception. I have tons of photo's that I love from the wedding - I thought I would just share a few of my favorites here.
