Dancing in Heaven

My Grandma Merkley passed away about an hour ago... She has been sick for quite a while, and had quite a few surgeries in the past month. When I got off the phone with my mom, all I could picture in my mind was her running and dancing in Heaven. What an amazing reunion she is having. Grandma, I always looked up to you. In my eyes, you were always perfect. I am pretty sure to everyone you knew you were always perfect. Today this world lost an amazing woman, and for that I am sad. But for you, I am so happy! Love you SOOO much Grandma, you are truly an amazing woman we will miss you so much.

I love the rain!!

I have been waiting, and waiting for a lightening and thunderstorm, so that I could take my camera out, and try and catch a lightening bolt. There was an awesome storm a couple of weeks ago, and I missed it. My sister, Mom, and I actually saw it from our car on the way back from SLC. I was so disappointed! So you can imagine how excited I was the other night, when Court, the kids and I were driving home, and saw a lightening storm out towards the mountains. So we hurried, got the kids in bed, then I grabbed my camera and tripod and out I went. It took me a while to figure out the settings the way I wanted to get the kind of picture I was looking for. Not only that, but I would wait and wait and wait in one spot and the lightening would all be over on the other side. So I would turn my camera, then they would move back, lol. I did get one that I really like though... :)

Then this last week Nikki watched my kids while we went to the temple, when we went back outside look at these beautiful rainbows that greeted us! Man I love the rain!

We went fishing today at a place in Tridell, we only caught one fish, and one toad. But we still had fun. Here are a few pictures.

On a side note, I am really sad at how cold it is getting lately.... I guess I kept hoping the summer would last until at least the end of October right... lol
