Hair Fantastic

Sometimes we all get a little bored! So....what did we do? We decided to straighten uncle Austin's hair to see how long it is (obviously he needs a haircut) and then we dyed Beau Beau's hair black and did the mohawk just for fun. I have to say I'm pretty proud of my styling skills!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Today was very eventful! The whole Clark Family, except Brady who had to work :( went to the Kaysville Parade. The girls had a lot of fun and got lots of candy. Then we had a BBQ at the Clark's followed by lots of fireworks. The girls were exhausted by the end of the day, but it was a fun 4th of July for everybody!

I'm Officially a Gardner!

Today I have reached a milestone in my life. I can officially pick out and plant flowers all by myself. I feel a little uneasy about my choices, but hopefully it will turn out okay once they bloom some more. I was limited on choices due to the fact that I had to pick mostly shade flowers.

Today was beautiful outside! We went for a walk outside with great grandma Janet (who is in town) and Camryn was very happy to strike a pose in her sunglasses.

The Reality of Working on a Rig

These are photos of a Patterson rig (that's the company that Brady works for) in Wyoming that had a "blow out" about one month ago. It takes only minutes to melt an entire rig to the ground! Patterson is always increasing its safety procedures and Brady has thankfully never been in a "blow out" situation, but these photos are a good reminder that anything can happen in the oil field and it will always been one of the world's most dangerous jobs. I'm so thankful for the risks that Brady is willing to take to provide for his family. He is an awesome provider, an awesome dad, and an awesome husband!

I told the girls that they were going to get to come with me to a wedding reception (which, since toddlers don't know what a wedding reception is, we had to translate it into a "party"!) They were so excited to wear their "princess" dresses and get to go dance. These were pictures taken right before we went to the reception. The girls had such a great time. Camryn and Kaylee owned the dance floor all night until they were completely exhausted. It was fun to show them off to old friends who I hadn't seen since Camryn was first born.

Summer Fun

Today we decided to have some summer fun in the backyard. We busted out the froggy pool and beach towels. It was a win-win situation--the girls and I got to enjoy the warm weather, the girls got to play in their pool, and mommy got to lay out in the sun and work on her tan. The girls got to eat their lunch outside on the picnic table, a perfect end to our outdoor play.

Sunday at the Zoo

All grandpa wanted for Father's Day was to take Camryn and Kaylee to the zoo. He got his wish. Grandma, grandpa, Sean, Camryn, and Kaylee all headed to the Hogle Zoo on Sunday morning. There were lions and tigers and...well no bears (if you recall, the polar bear ate a zoo keeper's glove last year and died). Among the favorites for the girls were the giraffs, monkeys, and elephants. Kaylee decided that she loved the ducks so much that she left her sippy cup behind with them in the pond.

Grand Junction Weekend

After the "denver disaster" I thought we would stick to driving for awhile. Brady had to take a class for his job in Grand Junction last Monday through Wednesday. He had already been gone for work the whole previous week so I decided that the girls and I would take a family trip to Grand Junction to visit him. We stayed at the Double Tree Hotel (compliments of Patterson (Brady's work)) and had a fun time. The girls loved playing in the pool. Camryn got a little confused though. She now thinks that Brady works at a nice hotel with big beds and a pool :) She can't wait to go back!

Denver continued

So finally, no more delays. I head over to gate C44 and hand over my ticket to the attendant. "I'm sorry, but you're too late", she said. My response of course was a little irritated. "What? Are you serious? I was re-scheduled for this flight and I've been here!". Finally, I convinced her to let me on the flight. Lucky me that she let me on board with the other TWO passengers on the plane! There was almost no room ;) Anyways, my flight landed around 3:20pm and I called my mom to let her know I had finally made it home. Almost. As the flight attendant went to open the plane door the door decided it wasn't going to open. So, after the pilot tried, the other pilot tried, the other flight attendant tried...a flight mechanic was finally called. Instead of waiting for the mechanic to fix the door, the crew decided that it would be better to emergency exit all of the passengers. So all three of us passengers were emergency exited and proceeded into the terminal. I had made it home.
So kids, the lesson here is...try not to be spontaneous. A quick twelve hour trip to Denver and back will surely turn into choatic flight schedules, emergency exits, and by the end you will know the Denver airport like the back of your hand. So plan ahead. :)

Denver Disaster!!!!

So, I was missing Brady a lot yesterday and decided that I just had to see him! So I booked a flight to Denver (last minute - no pre-planning) and flew in to see him. I had made my flight arrangements so that I would return early the next morning when my girls woke up so that they would only need to be watched overnight. Brady got to Denver from Parachute about the same time that my flight got in so it seemed like my overnight trip was going to be a spontaneous fun story to tell our family for years to come. But, no. When I woke up in our hotel (Brady had already left to go back to work) it was 7:28am. Yeah, my flight departed back to Salt Lake at 6:51. So, I scrammbled to change my flight (getting onto the 10:26am flight instead) and arranged for my mom to watch our girls until I arrived at noon. I came to the airport only to find that my 10:26am flight had been delayed to 12:19pm! And worse, as I sit here writing this flight is now still delayed to Salt Lake (scheduled to leave now at 1:13pm). Hopefully, I make it home! be continued.....

On May 31st, Megan was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! It was a huge honor to have Larry Banks perform the baptism. He and Deana have been like parents to Megan throughout her whole "soul searching" experience. We joke and now refer to them as the LDS parents.
