All the kids together again

All of the Guthrie kids were at our house on Monday having a barbecue to celebrate Randy & Cassi's visit. Shawn & Linda thought it would be great to have a picture of all the kids because they haven't been together in a while and it will be longer till they are all together again.

Randy & Cassi's visit

Randy is done with his first year at law school in New Hampshire so Randy & Cassi decided to visit family in Utah for a week. We are so happy they came, we had a barbecue at our house on Monday and played volleyball and I think everyone had a great time. (Jesse & Jake had to work so they weren't able to be there) Nick also had me take a few pictures of his barbecue, he is so proud of it.

New Barbecue & Garden

Nick and I love our new house and yard. I didn't realize how large our yard was till I had to mow it, but the dogs love it and it really has been great because we have been able to have family over to barbecue and play volleyball. We also put in a garden this spring and I'm happy to announce that my carrots and peas are coming up, the spinach has been a little slow but the peppers, eggplant, spaghetti squash and pumpkins are doing great. These pictures are the day that we planted the garden and the day Nick put together his new smoker/grill.

Winter at the new house

This is the first real winter the puppies have endured and they had an absolute great time playing in the snow. Sammy probably had the most fun, every time Nick would go out and shovel the drive and walks he would take the dogs with them and Sammy would try and catch the snow Nick was shoveling. Charleigh doesn't really like to get wet so she would follow Nick in the paths he made so she would stay as dry as possible. Kody just love the snow and playing outside.

Making up for lost time

Today I have time to catch our blog up to date. Tons has happened since the last time I was on here. There have been 3 births since the first of the year - Jessica had Savanna, Sharee had Brooklyn and Alicia had Addison and all three little girls are growing so fast. Nick is finishing up his commercial rating for flight school, that should be done at the end of next week at the latest and then he's trying to go to a school in Phoenix for a week to get his multi-engine rating. He is working so hard and he is also planning on starting at Weber State this fall. I've been working in my garden and flower beds and reading lately and it has been wonderful. Randy and Cassi were able to come visit this last week and it was great seeing them. This weekend we are planning on building a deck of the back of the house; so we have our work cut out for us.
