A couple of weeks ago, "The Boys"
 meaning all of the men in our family,
spent a few days in San Carlos Mexico. It was a much needed break for all and a great time
for the father's and son's of the family to spend some quality time together.
 They enjoyed lots of laughs...lots of yummy food, fishing...and some great spear fishing...
  What more could you ask for???

May...AKA..."Birthday May..."

June 4, 2014

May is a full month for us. We celebrate to big birthday's within a couple of days. 
 From the time The Darlings were babies...we have tried to make birthdays extra special! 
 I was in the hospital giving with a newborn baby Rooster, while we not only celebrated the new
addition to our family... buy also the birthday of The Farmer. 
 The Rooster and The Farmer are two peas in a pod...The Farmer often looks at him and says...
"that's just what I looked like when I was his age." 
 Or...when The Rooster finds his way into a little mischief... 
The Farmer understands all too well. He was a boy that was mischievous too.'s pretty great that their birthdays are so close!


 (The Rooster and Grandma Christine) 
 The Rooster began his day with his favorite breakfast, waffles with fried Spam...
yep...that's right! 
The waffles were topped with LOTS of whipped cream. 
He opened a few gifts...some cologne so we would smell delicious...
some pop tarts...some oreo cookies...and some really awesome socks! 
 Later in the evening he got his "gift" from The Farmer and I. 
 After he left for school, I got busy and started lunch for the cousins and friends at school. 
It has been a really fun tradition that we have enjoyed since The Aggie Boy began high school.
 The Rooster chose Spaghetti and Meatballs, salad, vegetables, garlic toast 
and a Pastel del Tres Leches for his cake.


Lunch with the kids is always so fun! It is something I really enjoy! 
 Grandma Christine was sweet to go along with me...and I might add...
very beloved by her grandchildren. Later in the evening The Rooster opened his 
official gift from The Farmer and I, which was Scuba Certification! 
 He and The Farmer will get certified together and very soon...
taking some wonderful trip together to do a little "diving."

Meanwhile...Back At The Farm...

Lots going on around this place... All good! 
The Aggie Boy is working his heart out, earning money for his next year of school. 
He was lucky enough to get a job as a trailer driver...yes...that's right... he is a "trucker!!" 
 He drives the US mail to different locations around Utah. 
 Most often he drives to Southern Utah...sleeps a little then returns to Provo. 
 He is able and willing to drive at any time...and he often does! 
He is working hard and saving for Fall.

 He loads his own that it is done just right... 
He's kind of OCD like that ;)
On long drives...he calls and we talk for hours... 
I love it!!


He says the best part of the job (other than the $$) is the morning sunrise,
which he get to see often!


 The Aggie Boy recently had a follow up with the Dr. for his broken arm...
the visit went well and the Dr. told him that he had healed perfectly!
 We were grateful for that!


He's enjoying a fun and productive Summer!
 I can't wait to get to Utah and see that Aggie Boy of ours!!!

This beauty will be home in just a few days...
and I am THRILLED!!!

She too had enjoyed a good job while in Provo...
and had lot of fun with more good friends that she has gotten to know there.
I can't wait to have her home where we can really soak
her for the last few weeks before her mission.


This is going full blast in my office today...the ice machine...
As quickly as the ice is is used...
WOW!! It's hot around here!


Meanwhile, back at The Farm...all is well!
