Guess what?!  Amy and I have walked about 350 miles in the past 2 1/2 months!!!!  We are so excited about our accomplishment!  We try to walk 5 times a week 4-5 miles per day.  It's super fun!  And I love that our exercising is good for us: physically and emotionally and spiritually.  We have long, wonderful talks!  We plan our church lessons and help each other with parenting dilemmas, etc.  Exercise and friendship are a great "fit!"  And add a beautiful walking park - it's GREAT for the soul!  We also see lots of great critters at our "place!"
For the Beauty of the Earth
We saw about 6 deer on our walk the other night....
How cute, and tiny is this little frog?!
And this happy turtle was about the size of my hand.
We walked even farther
- and found this amazing train bridge.
So cool!
And I got new walking shoes!
I made a pie for the Sister missionaries on Tuesday.  Amy gave me an EASY recipe.  It was a TOTAL hit!
Lemon Icebox Pie
Combine 8 oz. softened cream cheese, 8 oz. Cool Whip,
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk, 1/2 cup lemon juice, and
1 tsp. vanilla extract.  Mix until smooth.
Pour into a pre-made Graham cracker crust.
Put in the fridge to set.  YUM!
And I got another adorable picture from Trek!  Thank goodness for people who take pics and give them to me!  I love this picture of my baby and her best friend!
Danish - Kotten Kandy with Taffy
Key Lime Pie completed Pathway this week!  I'm soooooooooo proud of her!  And she graduated with an A+ average!  And in one month she'll be at BYU-I!  Look at her graduating Pathway group (minus a couple who moved away)
And she's still enjoying her job at the dentist office as a sterilization tech (Steri-Tech).  She's a cutie:
And her hair has already grown long enough to put up:
I miss my oldest baby girl!  But I am enjoying the one at home!  She and I are re-watching The Mentalist together as I type this post!  I'm glad we can share this fun entertainment together!
BTW - We could really use prayers for Scott.  He's having surgery on Tuesday for his herniated discs in his neck.  I'll post pictures and updates.... 😉


  1. Your miscellaneous pictures ARE fun! KY is beautiful. Friends are the best. Your girls are sweethearts. And our prayers are with Scott for sure. Kiara said something about a fast for him?? Hope your weekend is a good one... Mom/Mil

    Katia looks happy even if she did get over heated.
