New Specs

Erik, the eye glass lover, has new glasses! I thought I would show them off to you all. 
Here he is being very enthusiastic about his new glasses. Notice that they are not rimmed glasses! 
Here is a side view. He has never had glasses that go straight back, so it is a little weird for him. He likes them and I think they look great on him. I hope all is well.

More pics of my mission

I put a bunch of pictures on my facebook. Since it seems to take forever to put pictures on the blog, I'll just give you the address and you can check them out.

Birthdays, Burley and Cars

Erik skillfully cutting my cake up for my birthday. He baked it himself! He did a great job, it was delicious. 
Here is what Erik was creating with my cake. He has done this every year since we have started dating! 
Erik put 25 candles on the cake, I am only 23. How rude. I couldn't do it in one blow, because of the massiveness of the cake. 
YAY! A bread machine. It doesn't only cook the bread, it kneads it too. (Erik didn't know that!)
The day after my birthday we packed up to enjoy a weekend in Burley. We had a great time. We played on a really large slip and slide on Saturday, but because I was playing I didn't take any pictures. Hopefully, mom will post some. This picture is of Coral. I asked her to smile for the camera, but she wouldn't. So she got this ball to smile for her. 
Carson, who is now 1, and Cooper showing us their musical abilities. It was great to see them both and I can't believe how much they are growing. 
We had a birthday party for me and dad and all those August birthdays (Carson, Talia, Abbigail, Cooper, Quinn, etc...) Those are Jon's arms. He and Quinn, Wendy, Jacey, Parker and Paige were there and of course Grandma and Grandpa. 
Here is our birthday cake. Nate baked it. It was great and it took a lot of time. Thanks again Nate! 
Monday, the last day we were in Burley we went to Shoshone Falls. 
We had a picnic down at the falls with stuff we bought at Costco. 
We went to the falls, after we went to the Twin Falls Temple open house. The temple is beautiful and Mom and Dad were ushers and showed us were to go. 
Here is Mt. St. Helens. We went there for a field trip with work. It took about 4 hours to get there on a big, yellow, school bus. So that is not actually St. Helens, it is a replica. That is what it looked like after the eruption. 
This is what we saw...BOO. We saw clouds and rain and no Mt. St. Helens. Poor kids were sad (I think) I know I was sad. You can see the mud were the water ran off and that is about it. So basically we rode 4 hours to see some clouds, a movie about the eruption in the visit center, and the kids played on a different playground. Oh well. I will just have to go back when it is not cloudy. 
Saturday I did something that I have never done...wax a car. Here is Erik demonstrating the proper wax on technique. 
Here is the car all waxed. Erik is admiring his work. Oh and my work. 

Wax off. Notice the difference between the two sides? So that is what we did this weekend. It was a lot of work good thing Erik did most of it.  Oh and a bird pooped on it at church today. RUDE!!
