Thoughtful Christmas Present

This picture is what my Dad gave to my Mom for Christmas. This statue is of my moms great grandparents on their 80th anniversary when they were 98 years old. This statue is life size down in Fairview at a museum. It was made because at the time they were the couple to have been married the longest!! My Dad also had me find the original Time Magazine that had an article about them at the time of their anniversary. My dad is amazing! He put a lot of thought into this gift and pulled off a Great surprise for my mom! (He also surprised us girls and got one for all of us! He is the Best!) Nice job Dad!!

Date Night!

If you were trying to get a hold of my mom or dad last night, you probably couldn't. They are so cute and decided to have a date night! They spent LOTS & LOTS of money on their date! Inspiration for their date started about 2 weeks ago when they were going to the gym early one morning. A cop decided to pull them over and gave my dad a ticket. The next morning, my mom was on her way to work, and the same cop, same place, & same speed, decided to pull my mom over and give her a ticket. A few days later, in the same spot, my mom got another ticket! String of bad luck don't ya think! Then about 5 days later, my dad got pulled over. My dad plead his case to the officer for about 10 minutes and he finally felt bad for my dad and let him off with a warning. So with 3 tickets and 1 warning, my mom and dad had a date night at traffic school! We're so proud of you mom and dad and we're glad you still take time to go on dates! :)

Biking Maniacs

My mom and dad are bike-aholics. They go riding almost everyday, and I'm not talking just around the block. They go on rides I could never even think of going on. They ride to my house about once a week... and that alone is 4 cities away! They are crazy! Ok... I'm just jealous. It's just sad when your parents are in better shape than you are! Way to go mom and dad! You guys are crazy!

I love this picture because of a quote straight from my dads mouth... "I only ride with her because we like looking at each others hot buns!" Don't be embarassed mom... it's cute that you guys still are hot for eachother!

WOW - Women on Wheels!

My mom rode in a bike race that was 111 miles long all around Utah Lake... needless to say, it would kill any of her daughters, but she handled it like a champ! She wasn't even sore or anything! She is amazing! Us girls all talk about how we would die to have her legs and energy!

Crossing the finish line!

Since none of us could handle the race, we were there cheerin her on when she finished! Way to go mom!! You're Awesome!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Happy Birthday Dad/Grandpa! We love you so much!

Do we not have the cutest dad in the world?

Grandpa playing with the grandkids!
The grandkids all think he is the greatest... pretty sure it's because he is! They all love listening to his bear stories and just being with him! We could go on and on about how great he is... but I'm sure you all know! He would do anything for anyone and is the most loving and caring man around! He sure set a great example for all of us. We love you dad and hope you have a GREAT birthday!
