BBQ in the favorite!!!

This is always one of my favorite things to do when we go home to Utah - spend time up in the canyon. It is so beautiful, and so accessible. True, we have mountains here in Colorado, but I have yet to find an easily accessible canyon that is 15 away from my house. This picture shows what it is all about - smores! More pictures can by found on our Picasa web album:

Becki's Wedding

On Tuesday, June 24, we were blessed to witness the sealing of two friends - Becki Merkley and Seth Nelson. Reid and I went to high school with Becki and Seth; I was in choir with Becki and Reid played in the jazz band with Seth. They chose to be married in the Manti, Utah temple, which is beautiful! We were so happy to be a part of their special day.

While Reid and I were at the sealing, Reid's dad walked around with Genna. They had a great time, as you can tell by their big smiles!

Becki had a little adventure after she and Seth came out...her zipper popped!!! We quickly ran inside where her mom used a plethora of safety pins to "stick" her back together. :)

We will always be grateful to Becki for introducing us to each other on the first day of our senior year of high school, which eventually led to our marriage. Thanks Becki; congratulations on your wedding, and many happy years ahead for you and Seth!

Catch Up Posts

Well, here we go. Reid and I have a long list of things that we'd like to blog about. We've also tried to "prettify" our blog, and make it more unique. It has been a little challenging as we try to figure out a lot of new things at once: blogspot, custom backgrounds, iPhoto. Add to that Genna, who always seems to want to be in my lap these days (such as now) which leads to one-handed typing, and you can sense my discouragement.

BUT - I will overcome!!! I am determined to make it through the learning curve, and come out with a beautiful, informative blog filled with pictures. :) Let's go!

Four Generation Picture

The first part of our trip to Utah was spent in Paragonah visiting my grandparents.  While we were there, we took the opportunity to take a four-generation picture: Grandma Isabel Free, Mom Marilee Nelson, me Rebecca Cluff and Baby Genevieve Isabel.  I've included a few pictures, since I couldn't pick one.  Since we had three wonderful men taking pictures (Grandpa, Dad and Reid), we didn't end up with a shot that had all of us looking at the same camera.  If Dad or Grandpa have a better picture, please send it our way!
