Abe-y Baby Comes to Utah!

I suppose that this year was my lucky year, because I was able to see Ken Abrams twice in the year! He was in Utah for 2 days, most of the time I was working, but we scheduled for me to pick him up at the airport on Sunday after church, and then go to lunch at Red Iguana, my favorite mexican restaurant in Utah. We were only able to be together for a few hours, but it was fun to catch up again! It makes me so happy that even though it's been 9 years since I've graduated, we still hold a special spot in one another's lives. Sure love you Abe-y baby!

It's not me, it's you

My blog sucks.

I realize this, and I'm trying to rectify this. But, I blame you, my readers. No comments equals no real desire to blog. So here we go, I'll try to get better, and be more witty, and post more than pictures of my kid not wearing pants, and actually update more than once every never, and you people leave me comments. Deal?

**Ok, fine, the MAIN reason that I'm not blogging has nothing to do with lack of comments, and everything to do with the fact that I WORK ALL OF THE TIME, but I am really just scamming for comments. Is that so wrong?

Sabrina's Wedding

On June 24, my good friend, Sabrina married a wonderful guy, Tim. We were invited to the sealing in Manti, but I had to work, so we weren't able to make it. Of course we didn't miss the chance to attend the reception the next day with Wade and Jenny. Sabrina is beautiful, and she looked absolutely gorgeous at the wedding! I'm so glad she found someone like Tim. He treats her like a queen, and that's exactly what she deserves. He has two little girls, and she's going to be such a wonderful stepmom to them. She's always so cute with Hazen, and he has quite the crush on her because she's so pretty! It was fun to be able to dress up and have a nice little night out with Wade and Jenny. We love you Sab!

Welcome to Sandy Fire, Jason!

Jason has worked for Pleasant Grove Fire for almost 4 years now. It's been a great experience, but we decided that it was time for him to begin testing for other departments to see if he could gain even more. So, he tested for Sandy fire, and was accepted onto their Volunteer department! This is especially exciting because they only hire their full time guys from the volunteer list. The department had a really nice program a few weeks ago to swear in the new guys. It was really neat, and helped us feel like part of the team. In the 4 hours that Jason went on his ride along there, he went on 3 calls, so I know he's going to be super busy and it's going to be a great experience! It's also fun because they transport to IMC now and again, so perhaps ONE DAY he might have to transport an aneurysm to me in Thoracic. Ok, that's a long shot, but that's the ONLY way we ever see the paramedics in our unit. :)

Jason will work at least 24 hours a month in Sandy, and has several training opportunities each month as well. I think it's going to be a really great fit for our family. Now if we could only find a way to teleport ourselves from Utah County to Salt Lake County to do without the commute....

Hazen enjoyed most of the swearing in ceremony. Well, until he realized that Daddy would be getting a "shiny badge", and Hazen wouldn't. It's 3 weeks later and I'm still hearing about how much he wants a shiny badge like Dad's! Can't wait for the fun stories I'll hear from Jason about all he does at Sandy.

Lady Danville Visits again!

As you know, we're Lady Danville groupies. Anytime that they come into town, I'm first on the list to go see them. Currently, they're touring with Jack's Mannequin, and to all of their SLC fans, there was no concert scheduled for Utah. So, being the wonderful group of people that they are, they made it a priority to at least drive through Salt Lake and stop to have a little picnic/acoustic jam session in a park. It was so neat! There were at least 100 people there, and everyone just loved and adored them. They really are so incredibly talented.

Hazen was so excited to see the singers of his very favorite song, and he was really interested in playing frisbee with everyone. I can't wait until Lady Danville comes and does an actual concert again, and I know it's just a matter of time until they are headlining their own shows!
