1st Princess... Brittany Wilding

Our neighbors told us about "Little Miss Cherry Days", it is a self esteem pageant that North Ogden puts on for 6 & 7 year old girls. Brittany said she wanted to participate so we signed her up. They had a lot of activities for the girls to participate in, such as, a Mom and Miss Luncheon, Mon and Miss Photo Shoot, and had Miss North Ogden come and speak about self esteem. They also learned some songs and dances that they performed as part of the Little Miss Cherry Days Pageant. In the pageant, they had a contestant interview, Brittany was really cute. They asked her about her and Natalie's rock collection. She did a really good job, so good in fact that the judges voted her the 1st Princess. She was really excited because if for any reason the Queen was unable to fully perform her duties (removed from her position because of a scandal) Brittany would have to step in and fulfill the queens role. JUST KIDDING. As part of her "duties" she participated as a royalty in the Miss North Ogden Pageant. She also was in the Cherry Days Parade and also in the Ogden City Pioneer Day Parade. She will be in the Peach Days Parade in Brigham City, as well as, the Harrisville Parade. She will also act as a mentor to the other girls next year when they hold the Little Miss Pageant. We are really proud of her; she is a wounderful young girl and she does a great job in whatever she does. She hasn't let her new found fame go to her head and is as nice as ever.
Being a princess is hard work!

Spring 2007 at the Cabin

This past Thursday, the last week of March, Dad, Mom, Kevin, Grace and I went to the cabin. Carolyn and the rest of the girls came up on Friday. We worked hard and were able to get a lot done. The kitchen is finished except we still need to find a refrigerator and we still have to install some minor trim. Dad has all of the cabin pictures, so maybe he will post them on his blog. We also still need to hang some of the new light fixtures but that is pretty minor stuff. The cabin still needs to be furnished so keep your eyes open for bean bags and futons. We also need one queen mattress and box spring. Dad thought it would be a good idea to only have one traditional bed at the cabin in order to keep the space as open as possible. Futons can double as both a couch and a bed and don't take up much room. I think the kids will love sleeping in the new loft. It has double pad so its pretty comfortable even without a mattress. Dad also thought it would be a good idea to forgo trying to find sheets to fit the futons instead just bring your own sleeping bags. This will also help on keeping the amount of laundry to a minimum. We also need to stock the kitchen with pots and pans as well as utensils, paper plates, cups etc. We are planning on taking up the furniture in a few weeks when the snow is gone, so if you have anything to contribute to the cabin just let me know. P.S. We went to the cabin again over spring break so here are some more pictures. Just for the record Brittany did catch all three of those fish, and yes we were fishing from the boat ramp at Sheep Gulch.

Hi, this is Natalie...This is when we lived up in Montana. We went to our Aunt and Uncles cabin and we were picking berries. There was a long of berry bushes and a big hill we climbed up on and we got berries from that hill. They were really good and our cousin Parker ate a whole cup full of berries and he was a mess after he ate them. It was really fun.

The Day After The Bar

Well it's the day after the bar exam and for good or bad it's over and done with. Hopefully I passed, but to tell you the truth I have no idea. I'll know in about 8 weeks. I think they don't give you the results right away to keep you from going postal if you don't pass. I bet they are thinking that after 8 weeks or so you can't remember and don't care.
