Phriday Phun Part III

So...fun filled day with my kids, fun filled night with the adults....driving home.....pull up to my house and what to my wondering eyes should appear but..................









A CAMPFIRE!!!!!!!!!!!! OH BOY, BRETT AND GINA ARE HAVING A CAMPFIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey John!!!!
Even Zoe was there to party!
Check out Heather and Joe through the smoke, true campfire!
Everyone had been there for quite some time so I had to catch up! My old man had gone to bed before I got there because he was waking up early to go to the Dunes and do some serious riding!
So boy did I catch up! Enough to start the self portraits!! Here are Gina and I!
Here I am with my "cuz" Bernel!
Oh yeah! Great night! I crawled home at 3am and didn't MOVE the next day! What a Phun Phriday. In the future though, I suggest doing it WITHOUT the hangover.

Phriday Phun Part I

A little over a week ago, my kids and I decided to go out for a Phriday Phun day. They have been off track from school and this was one of their last days off, so we decided to go play! First, we went to the park.
Topher going up the slide.....
Ooops! Came back down!
They wanted me to take pictures of them in mid air jumping off of the swing. Do you know how hard that is????

Monkees!!!

After the park, we decided to wind down by going to the library. I am glad that my kids like to do this because reading is one of my FAVORITE passtimes!

Then we were HUNGRY!! We decided to try a new place. Tim and Topher like to eat hot stuff (they get that from their dad) so we decided to try Wingers. Here Tim and Topher had been arguing so Topher wasn't so into getting his pic taken!
But after a full tummy of wings, he was in a better mood! Here is how Topher "measured up"
Here is Tim.
We had a great time. Unfortunately, Brendon was in school or we would have brought him along. This day gets even better! Stay tuned for part II!

The View From My "Office"

This post is mostly for my British "cousin" Roger. We are always talking about where we live and I wanted to show him just how majestic the Rocky and Oquirrh mountains are. He lives in a place called Ellesmere which is near a place called Colemere, go figure! I think I found where my ancestors came from! Over there, the word "mere" means "lake", so my new name is Jaylene Colelake Morley. Sweet!!!! Here is the western view from my corner, the Oquirrh Mountains. Pretty, huh!!!
And... (wait for it...wait for it....drumroll) here are the Rocky Mountains! Huge! This isn't the best pic, it is a little hazy. Of course, it is nothing like seeing them in person! This is my eastern view. Love my "office".
Here you go, Roger! I hope you enjoyed it!!!

My Budding Photographer

My little Topher was thinking a couple of days ago that he would get the jump on next year's Reflections Contest (love it!). He decided he wanted to enter the photography category this time. I told him he should start practicing now so that by the time the contest came around, he would be a master. I showed him how to work my camera (yes my new expensive camera that is an entity on its own) and he went around the house taking pictures. He must have taken about 50! After he was done, he picked his favorite and I gave him a little photo album to keep them in. Here are his choices:
Gizmo
Abstract!
Of course I HAD to take some of him with his swords posed in warrior style!!!

Don't all artists add photos of themselves to their work???
So serious! Good luck Topher!!
