Art City Days

Art City Days in Springville has come and gone, and we enjoyed a lot of the things that were going on around the city.

Spencer won 2nd place in the Baby contest for the 21-24 month boys and got to have his picture and blurb in the newspaper (Brevin won 3rd place in the same age category 2 years ago).

We also went to the carnival and rode a few of the kiddie rides, and went to the parade on the last day. That night we watched the fireworks from on top of the foot hills above our house.

First Campout of 2006

We finally dusted off the tent trailer and pulled it up Hobble Creek canyon for an overnight campout at Jolley's ranch on May 26, 27. Both Brevin and Spencer were excited to finally get a chance to camp in the trailer after a long sit through the winter.

Brev took his bike and rode it up and down the dirt road while Spence followed behind pushing his lawn mower. We also threw rocks in Hobble Creek and hiked around a bit. We plan to go to the Uintas for a couple nights around the first week of Aug. I'm aching to fish the lakes up there now that they have opened the Mirror Lake highway.

Just a quick update on the basement since I haven't posted in ages. Basically it's all wired, sheet rocked, taped/textured and painted. Doors are on, and we now need to put tile in the bathroom and laundry room, finish the shower, get a toilet and sink/vanity. Then carpet the rest of the basement. Not a whole lot left to do, but not a whole lot of money left either. Bits and pieces at a time I guess.
