Drive Inn

Summer time in Utah equals a trip to the drive inn movies. About two hours before we went a massive rain storm hit. Wait 15 minutes and the weather would change again.

Shane hates going to the movies but I was able to talk him into going to the drive inn. Carley wanted to see Despicable Me and Charlie St. Cloud. It worked out perfect because both movies were playing on the same screen.

We popped 4 bags of microwave popcorn, bought candy at Wal-mart and drinks at Maverik all because I will NOT pay the outrageous prices at the movies.

Me and Shane
We forgot the lawn chairs so all 6 of us sat in the back of the truck. It was so uncomfortable that Shane and I stayed awake for both movies. This is so not like us, Shane and I are usually in bed NO LATER then 10 pm.

The drive inn is totally REDNECK and I love it!!!

Flat As A Pancake

My OB/GYN told me that I needed to give myself a birthday present this year since I will be turning 40. BINGO!! Vacation here I come! But a vacation was not what he had in mind. It's mammogram time.

This was not my first mammogram though. In 1997 I had 2 mammograms, 1 ultrasound and 1 lumpectomy. Luckily its was benign (non-cancerous).

This picture is so deceiving, my boobs aren't really as big as they look. I tell everyone that I don't have boobs, I have skin. I nursed all 3 of my children and they sucked all the boob out and left me with the skin. Good thing we have Victoria Secret! Oh, by the way, did I tell you that I am one of Victoria Secret's secrets?

The Mammogram machine

The picture you are about to see below is not me. I just wanted those who have not had a mammogram before to see that it's not a big deal.
Early detection is the key to surviving cancer.

My Wonderful Dad!

My Dad

Why can't all the good memories over ride the bad ones?
15 years ago today my dad died. It was one of the worst days of my life! I will never forget that day. Oh, how I wish I could! I hate remembering this day! I hate cancer, it stole my dad from us! I hate it, I hate it, I HATE IT!!!!

I watched you suffer for many years so your passing should have came as a relief but it didn't. I wish you were still here! I know that's totally selfish of me but I really miss you! I love you daddy!

Muddy Mess

A new camp spot (Milo's Kitchen) on the Monroe Mountains leads to muddy dogs. They were like kids in a candy store. They couldn't get enough of the mud.

Darrell Russell

Daisy Mae

There was a muddy creek just before the big rocks that the dogs were running through to retrieve a stick that Austin was throwing.

Max, Dori, Daisy, Darrell and Gunner

Wouldn't you know it, the time I forget my big camera we see two big bull elks. My blog camera is only a 3x zoom so I was not able to get a close up. Dammit Theresa! 1 bull is in the meadow and the other one is to the right of the lone pine tree.

Next time I will for sure bring my big camera.
After looking at this post, I thought I should clear something up.
I only have 3 dogs, the other two are the Thomas'. Also this trip must have been all about the dogs because there are no pictures of our kids even though they were there!

Party Hardy

This is the second Saturday in a row that the Adams', Douglas' and Thomas' have spent the day swimming, eating, drinking and just having a ball together. Normally we are camping every weekend but since Shane has a big hunt coming up we have scaled back a little. To be quite honest, I think my sister Anna loves us being there.

Talon Harmon

Zoe has never let me hold her before and now look at her. I think she loves me but then who wouldn't?

I would like to report that we all got out of the water safe and sound thanks to Mike (Anna's husband) Bingo..your hired..Life guard Mike!


Porscha Douglas

Still to this day, I think that I totally rock the Gene Simmons look. In fact, I have been teaching Carley the look. She is getting there.

Anna (a.k.a Wendy) me and Jenn

Maddie Thomas

I love this man!

Kofax and Carley

I am not quite sure who Shane thinks he is. Wait I know, John freakin Elway.

Cassie, Diesel and Chase

We made it home in time to watch the Clinton City fireworks and I must say, they were better then Syracuse's.

We love going to the Bee's baseball game. The Salt Lake Bee's are a Triple A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim CA a.k.a. a farm team. The Bee's played the Sacramento River Cats.

Shane and I


Courtney and Shane

Chase and Cassie

Look...the kids are getting along! I have the picture to prove it! Cassie and Chase brought phase 10 card game to the baseball game. W.T.F. I paid $8 a person for them to play cards!?! Oh well, it was worth it. Anytime that we get to spent together as a family is an AWESOME time.

Nick Gorneault (#25) has always been our favorite player. I don't know why, maybe because he is cute or because he is the only player that we know their name. He is looking right at us, as if to say "Hello Adams' ".

Is this a paying job? They only came out twice so I would have lots of free time. I could totally do this.

I love the 7th inning stretch. I will sing the song for you. Please be parpared to be blown away by my mad singing skills. I have been told by several people that I have a freakin AWESOME voice (I'm just kiddin ya, I can't sing).

Take me out to the ball game. Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack. I don't care if I never get back. Let me root, root, root for the home team. If they don't win it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out. At the old ball game.

The Bee's won 5 to 3. YEAH!!!! I can honestly say they won because we were there. They had lost the night before.

Who's Your Dentist?

Courtney, Me, Carley and Shane had our 6 month dental checkup together. Our dentist is Dr. Spencer Wade (Dr. Glen Wade's son). This was not your ordinary dentist appointment.

Carley and I went back in a room together, while we were waiting and waiting we decided to play dentist. Let me give everyone some advise. Don't leave Carley and I alone in a room with boredom! Carley was the dentist first, I was the patient and the photographer (yes, I can take pictures of myself).

Carley even used the tools. If Shane, Courtney or Cassie was in the room with us they would be dying by now. They are the conservatives in our family.

Now it was my turn to play the dentist. Guess who just walked in the room? Dr. Wade. He looked shocked! I think that Carley and I were the first people he had caught playing dentist. He said to us "well, I guess you don't need me" and started walking out of the room. We started laughing.

Good news, NO cavities for any of us! Yeah!!
