house update

We are still in Arizona just relaxing. We just got an update about our new home. They began putting the brick on this week and they should start the drywall in the next couple days. We are very excited to soon be in Texas and to see our home for ourselves. It is hard to only see it progress through pics. Hope that you all come for a visit while we are there.

Hey all. No new pics this time around. Scott and I were able to have a day date yesterday and went to Lagoon. (Amusement Park in UT) We had a really great time and it was also fun to relive the old days! We also met up with a friend of ours, Alexis Kinney, and her boyfriend. We also had a chance to meet up with my brother Sam and his family. We were excited to meet the newest addition to the Bawden Clan, Neve. She is sure a cutie and we will be able to dote on her some more come Monday. It has been fun being able to meet up with some family and friends in the area. I wish we had more time to ensure seeing everyone. Guess we'll just have to come back.

It's begun

On Memorial day we had a chance to say a final goodbye to dear friends. Scott the kids and I will miss you all very much. Thank you to the women of the Wardroom for your friendship and support over the time we have known one another. To the 1st ward....THANK YOU! We have loved our church family and the opportunities we have had with all of you. Our door is open to all of our friends if you happen to be in our neck of the woods!!
Garrett was known as the "ladies man". He and LisMarie really had a thing for each other.
Our first stop was in Spokane Washington. We spent 2 nights (Garrett ended up with a mild case of Chicken Pox) with Jon and Lorna Martinez (Cousins) and their 5 kids. We had so much fun going downtown to the park and going on the carousel, playing on a giant red flyer wagon, feeding the garbage goat, and being splashed by the ever high, Spokane River!! Thank you so much Martinez family. We love you all and hope you can come visit soon!!
Riley and Clarissa in line for the carousel! Sorry girls I couldn't upload any more. I will send them via e-mail!
We spent some time in Yellowstone Park. Here are the kids in front of Old Faithful before it began. The kids loved seeing all the wild animals. Riley would jump out of the car with Scott or I to take pictures of the buffalo, elk, eagle, and even a grizzly bear that we spotted. (My 1st sighting in Yellowstone) We spent the night in Island Park at the Blad's cabin. It was beautiful and it was a nice quiet retreat. We spent time with my brother and his family in Idaho Falls. The kids had a great time with their cousins. Sadly that was the only time we were able to spend with them. We are now in Utah with my parents. I will post more in a bit. Sorry this has taken so long. We have either had no connection or it was taking forever to get the pics uploaded.
More soon
S&S and kids
