Wild Fire

June 24th, 2012

What a weekend. Friday we were told to evacuate our home because the the wild fire that started Thursday. It grew and grew and was out of control. Thankfully as I write this we are home safe and not too worried about having to leave again, but it isn’t out yet. Here are a few photos I was able to capture while evacuating on Friday and then later that night when we drove back out to take a look.

At night this fire was something unlike anything I had seen up close and personal. It was scary and yet amazing.

Happy times and Happy Holidays!

These photos were made in American Fork and boy was it cold. The kids lasted just long enough though, thankfully. We had a few red noses but a lot of fun making these.

Hope you enjoy.

As always we love comments so don’t be shy. Let us know what you think.

Giving thanks

November 24th, 2011

I have many, many things to be thankful for this year. I would list them all but I would probably forget something so I will tell you about one that sticks out in my mind. My family. I am thankful for my wonderful wife and children. They are everything to me and I would not be who I am today without them in my life. I am also thankful for my parents and siblings. My family, as some of you may know, has gone through some tough trials with health in the past few years and this year was no exception. Specifically, and most recently, my sister having a heart attack (actually 2). If there is a bright side to this happening to her it would have to be first off that she is doing fine now, second that it was a wakeup call to all my siblings that we need to do what it takes so we hopefully won’t have similar issues, and third that it motivates me to eat healthier and exercise. It was a wakeup call to me to say the least. Thankfully everyone has pulled through their ailments thus far.

I am also thankful for the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner my wife, children and I put together today. It was the first time we had cooked a turkey, and the first time we did everything all on our own. It was fun and extremely exhausting at the same time, but I am proud to say that everything was very good. Not knowing the first thing about cooking a turkey we looked up recipe after recipe and put together a plan. Pretty much we did everything we could do to make our turkey as moist and delicious as possible. We soaked it in a herb brine overnight, we used a herb butter to slather on the outside of the turkey, we injected olive oil and herbs inside the turkey and we used a cooking bag to seal in the moisture. Sounds overkill right? but man was it moist and delicious. Heck everything was delicious and everything homemade.

Wait what was I saying before about eating healthier?
