Peach Pie

So my boss at work came back from the weekend saying how she canned some peaches and made a pie and what not. She has 2 little ones too a 3 year old and a 5 month old. I felt really inspired from her. She brought a box of peaches to work on Tuesday and told us to take some because she had so much extra. She then kept saying how good her peach pie was and what not. So then I got on the Internet and found a recipe. I showed my boss and she was so funny...she is my little cheerleader! She was like "You can do it I know you can!!!" I came home that night and Brent went out golfing and I was bound and determined to make this peach pie. Let alone I really like to cook...its kind of my time to relax and take time to myself. So I had to take pictures of the wonderful pie that I baked.

Here is a picture of the peach pie before I put it in the oven. This is the 3rd pie I have ever made. So I was really glad that my dough and everything turned out so good.
Here is the final result!! Boy was it worth it. We had a hard time cutting the pie because it looked so perfect!

Bear Lake

We had the opportunity to go to Bear Lake over Labor Day weekend. We went with my mom, Steve and Sammy! We were really excited to go because neither one of us has been before. So we had this trip planned like a year in advance so I got Friday off so we could have an extra day of play. We met up with Sammy in Logan and then we went up. As we were driving down into the valley we couldn't believe how blue and clear the water was. It was so beautiful!!
Here is a picture that I took of the pretty!
The night before we left my mom called us and asked if we wanted to go golfing....HELLO DO WE WANT TO GO they had tee times set up for us when we arrived. So we ate lunch really fast and then we went golfing. It was super fun. We ended up going twice. We all did better the second time. Thanks to Sammy...she gave us a bunch of helpful hints!!
Here is mom and Steve!! Whoot whoot!!
Okay check out the cool sand castle we built...okay not really but we would like to claim it. Once we got done golfing we went to the beach. Me and Brent started to build a castle but man its hard work and I started to loose my patience! We played Frisbee and volleyball on the beach. That was super fun. Let alone it was a great place to people watch. I couldn't believe how many sea shells there were too!!!
Oh yes and you can't forget about the kit flying! Me and Brent flew a kite. That was fun...I haven't done that since I was a little kid. The wind was kind of blowing but once we were done of course the wind picks up. But still that was really fun!
Here we are all in a line, mom, me, Brent and our sis Sammy!!!
Brent got bored as we were sitting there watching a storm move in so he wanted to bury my foot. It reminded me of a cartoon like when someone gets their foot stepped on or ran was like huge after the fact.
Once all said and done he found some cute sea shells to make me some pretty toe nails! Haha
Here is a group photo of us on our last day. It was so sad to leave everyone but we had such a great time! Thanks so much Mom and Steve for inviting us. It was nice to have one more vacation right before we started back into school!!!
Oh yes...that is snow that you are seeing. We were on our way back home and it was snowing as we were driving through the mountains. How crazy huh...only in Utah/Idaho does that happen! I always heard crazy stories that it snows in the summer time...but I never really believed it until I saw it!!!!
