Summer day at Sugarhouse Park

I noticed that I haven’t posted these pictures yet. When the kids were still out of school we decided to go to downtown Salt Lake City. We wanted to go to the DUP(Daughters of the Utah Pioneers) museum, but it was closed for construction. I did not want to pay for parking so we decided to go to Sugarhouse park, have a picnic and play. It was a pretty windy day, so as soon as we were done with lunch the bigger girls decided it was more fun to read a book in the car than to go play. So I took the other three kids and we had fun on the playground and at the stream.

New Shelves

As part of the project to finish our basement, we had the contract provide us a bid on building shelving in the basement storage room and in the garage. The pricing was reasonable and the contractor started on it right away while waiting for the building permits for the basement.

Nancy and I were both pleased with the results. Especially with the garage shelves where we can now get stuff off the garage floor and out of the way. The only problem is that Nancy is on the shorter side so she tends to load everything on the bottom shelves and leave the top shelves sparsely populated. It’s that way in our kitchen and in various closets throughout the house.

Thanks to Aaron the contractor for the good work he did on the shelves. We look forward to getting the rest of the basement finished.

Anne's Birthday 2010

(08/18/2011)Unfortunately, it’s been more than a year since I focused on updating the website. Now that I’m done with school, I’ve got much more time in the evenings so I’m going back in time and adding events that I previously missed. I can’t remember what we did for Anne’s birthday in 2010 but I don’t believe she got a “friend” party. Anne, I’m sorry that the best I could do was a picture without much commentary.
