Ida Soccer 2015

Ida played soccer again this Spring and loved it, especially because her cousin was on the same team (Aunties/Moms pulling some strings on that one) AND her coach was a dad of one of Emerson's friends AND Emerson's friend was on the team AND one of the players was Ida's friend from church she has known for years.  It was a good season.
 Best friends.

Trip West 2015--Other

 We went up to Mount Charleston to hike but the trail was closed.
 We were okay with that since it started snowing!!!!

So we came down the mountain to Red Rock Canyon and did some climbing....in the warmth.


 Nevada LDS temple.

We went to a casino....
 For the free aquarium!:)
 We saw a car that had just crashed into a building.....totally Vegas style.
 And we hung out a ton every afternoon in the pool...



It was truly a joy and we will be back!!!

Trip West 2015--Valley of Fire

We went to the Valley of Fire or, in other words, THE COOLEST PLACE ON THE PLANET!  Its a National Park just 45 minutes outside of Las Vegas.  I would go back again in a heartbeat.  So much to climb and see.




 Petrified Log....it's a Carty thing.:)












 This is a very popular place to shoot commercials and movies...and we ran into one being shot!
