More Fun

That night that I went out with Nicky, Brion and Danielle were on their way to visit from Idaho. The next day we tried to go to the Mt. Timpanogos Cave but once we got there we realized we couldn't bring our dogs on the hike with us. And it probably would be a good idea to leave them in the car for that long. On the way up the scenery was amazing and we had a lot of fun goofing off.

That Sunday before they left we carved pumpkins for Halloween.

Witches Night Out

Nicky Hadfield text me at work on the 16th and invited me to go with her to Gardener's Village for a witches night out. Gardener's Village has a lot of different shops and every Halloween they have a girl's night. Everyone dresses up like witches and the entire place is decorated with witches. We ate delicious caramel apples and had a blast! I was very surprised because I thought Nicky had family coming too but it ended up being just us. It was exactly what I needed. Life gets busy for everyone so it was really nice to do something spontaneous again. Right after work I went and bought fabric and we threw together my skirt before we left.

One of my favorite General Conference talks this past conference was given by President Monson. He talked about different packages he had received from people all over the world. One that really touch me was a jar full of "warm fuzzies" that represented little acts of service by primary classes. (Click here to read his talk)
Since then, I've been trying to think of ways to reach out to my community and do something special. One idea was to try to get a group of people together and make blankets for a local hospital or possibly find a charity to donate to. Today I received an email with the idea to put together gift baskets and take them to a local nursing home. Kemp and I had the opportunity to visit a nursing home this past Mother's Day and give 10 women a special gift. It was an amazing experience for both of us. So as of today...I plan on getting together gift baskets to donate to an entire nursing home rather than to only 10 people. We will be doing this for Christmas!

If you are interested in donating, each gift set will be $20. Each set will have a Mary Kay Satin Hands Cream and Mint Bliss Energizing Feet and Leg Treatment (includes tax, gift wrapping, and delivery). Great for both men and women! Feel free to email me if you have any questions!

Also, if you are interested in doing this in your area, please let me know and I can help you put together your gift sets and ship them to you directly.

Seven Peaks Water Park

A while back Abell and Brit came to visit us and we went to a water park in Provo. One of our favorite past times with them was going to a water park in San Antonio called Schlitterbahn. They had the brilliant plan of recreating it at Seven Peaks. We love you guys!!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Goodwin

This year for Kemp's birthday I really tried my best to surprise him. I usually have a hard time holding things back. For example, Kemp got his birthday gifts last Sunday. I just couldn't wait anymore! I don't know what my problem is. But for his real surprise, I got a few of our friends to meet us at Olive Garden. I invited Marc and Nicky to go out to eat with us (Kemp knew that much). So we headed down to Provo and once we got off the highway and headed towards Olive Garden, we had him put on a blind fold. Once we got there I made sure everyone was there at our table, went back outside and got Kemp, and guided him (still blind folded) to our table. Once we walked in there were a few people that said "oh you brought him to Chucky Cheese!" lol. It was fun of them to add a little something to throw him off. I got Kemp to the head of the table...I took off his blind fold and surprise! Everyone did such a great job getting there on time. It turned out perfect! Thank you everyone!Marc & NickyNicky, Marc, Rich, and KeshiaJay, Tina, Addy (I promise she's laughing), and Nay Nay peeking Matt, Amber, Ana, and their new little boy hiding in Amber's armsBrandon (Sorry Kristen, I should have taken a pic before you needed to take care of little Olivia)
I think this is the first time that Whitney has ever really surprised me. It was awesome to see our friends together. Thank you for coming. And thank you to Whitney for being so great.

Walkin the Dog

We decided to spice things up a little bit when we take Tori on her walks. We got out our old skates. It's funny to see how uncoordinated we are, but we are proud to say that we haven't fallen.
