Big Time Savings :P

I just saved TWENTY-FIVE dollars at the grocery store today!!

THAT, my friends, is a great feeling!

We went to Idaho this past weekend to visit Andy's sister Nikki and her awesome family! Saturday we went to Rigby Lake (It's really Jefferson County Lake. But those crazy Idahoians don't call things what they really are!) It was great fun. We took Will on a raft for about 5 minutes. He could have cared less though. haha We then went to Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Yummmm-o! Sunday we had chruch and took some pictures of those cute Barnes' kids! We had a blast!

Pictures to come a little later!

Where the heck does the time go?

Will is 7 months old as of yesterday. I'm pretty sure I didn't allow this. I am pretty sure he never asked permission either. He's SUCH a cute little dude. He's started getting really excited...about...everything! I made him applesauce from organic apples a few weeks ago. I put it in baby jars, stuck them in the freezer and got some out late last week. He LOVES it! Whenever I give it to him, he balls his fists up, kicks his little legs (almost kicking the jar out of my hand), sucks his lower lip in, and goes "Hmmmm! Hmmmm! Hmmmm! It is the CUTEST thing I have ever seen! Of course, I have yet to get video of it. Sometimes there are thing I want to keep all to myself! He has also started scooting (as I mentioned in an earlier post) It's really cute, and kinda nice that he enjoys playing with toys on the floor, then making me hold him all day long. Although, sometimes I miss that...quite a bit actually. He is SUCH a cheese ball. He makes this HUGE grin all the time. It actually looks a lot like a face I used to make when I was a kid. Crinkly nose, big huge grin. So cute! He is looking more and more like me. He looked just like Andy when he was born, but now, he's looking more like me. It's interesting. He LOVES to make raspberries with his mouth. Sometimes while he is eating too. Gets ALL over everywhere. He also really loves Andy. At around 5-530, he starts getting grumpy. It's the time Andy is usually home. He gets so happy again once Andy is home. I love it.

He is such a sweet little boy. He is so loving and happy all the time. Andy and I can't imagine him not being with us. It's like he's always been with us. We love him so much and are so happy to be a family!

Here is a picture of Will, totally cheesin it up!

Glenwood/Big Rock Candy Mountain/Fremont Indian SP

The awesome farm house we stayed at! Thanks Becca and Nate!
W and Daddy on his first 4wheel ride! He could have really cared less. ha!
At Big Rock Candy Mountain
It's kind of hard to see, but this is actually some kind of map drawn by the Fremont.
The main source of food was desert goat. There are a lot of drawings of these animals.
Inside the Sheep Shelter. The cave wasn't big enough to hold sheep, they call it that because of the sheep drawn on the roof.
At the Fremont Indian State Park. Look up to where I am pointing. It's an indian pictograph of a desert goat from about between the years of A.D 400-A.D 1300.
We didn't have a hat for W, so we just had him "put yo' hood up"!

Recent Pictures of the crazy fraser clan!

Oh, aren't we an attractive family?!
Yum, yum...a mum mum!
you have to looove that face

Trip to Glenwood

Sunday night Andy and I packed up our stuff and Will and drove about 3 hours to Glenwood, UT. It's right outside of Richfield. It's a quaint little farm town to which I hope to move one day. Yes, it's true, I want to move to a farming community where the closest Wally World is about 30 minutes or more away. And don't even think about a mall, welcome to cyber shopping. I want to grow my own produce and have a few horses. Eat buffalo on a regular basis (it's just better for you). Yes, I know...you all think I am nuts. But there is nothing I love more then a little town with about 5 roads and lots open land.

That being said, we had a great adventure! Our first night there, we just chilled. "Watched" a movie, and if you know me at all, you know I fell asleep within the first 30 minutes. On Monday, we just hung out around the house. Which is a gorgeous, 100 year old farm house. We then had quite the feast. We enjoyed hotdogs on the grill, with beans, grilled zucchini, grilled corn on the cob and fresh trout on the grill. I will have to say, the trout was amazing. Becca's dad cought it just this past weekend, so it was still very fresh. I added some s&p along with some Lemon Herb seasoning and to top it off, I covered it in fresh lemon juice. Wrapped it in some foil and Grilled it. It was devine!

Tuesday, Andy, Will and I went on little adventure to Big Rock Candy Mountain. It was quite fun. We enjoyed a little hike, shared a buffalo burger at the cafe and let Will drink some water out of a straw. That was funny. He loved it.

After Big Rock, we went to the Fremont Indain Museum and Stake Park. That was the coolest place! The story is, when they were building I70, they came across these mountains/canyons and noticed caves and pictoglyphs. So, they moved the highway and did some big excavations on the area. They discovered the largest Fremont Indian settlement ever. There is so much rock art out there it is insane. It's kinda weird looking though. A lot of it looks like martians or something. Crazy. But, the Fremonts have a legend of where they come from. They come from the underworld and they have to try to get back there, there are three different degrees of the underworld and they try to make it to the best one...sound familiar? Yeah...I thought so too.

It was way neat. We have lots of pictures. I'll post them later. Andy and I want to take a little trip with just the two of us to Big Rock, we want to go on the Piute ATV trail and rafting down Lemonade Springs.

Speaking of ATV's...I totally flipped when I was riding the 4wheeler. I am ok, I have lots of bruises and I'm really sore, but I'm great! Scariest thing ever!

have...wanted...must have...

Two years ago, I went to a festival in Asheville called Bele Chere. It is this really awesome street festival they have every year for a weekend. While I was there, I was wearing some cheap-o Old Navy sandals. I had had them FOREVER. Long enough, that while paroozing the streets, I discovered my heel was touching the pavement. Yuck!

So, I tossed them out right there and bought these:Best 30 bucks I ever spent. They are comfy, like walking on clouds. Good arch support. And, they keep your toesies in control.

Well, there is a downside to these...they're flip flops. Not so good for hiking and such.

Then, I discovered these:
I loooove the way they look and I looove the way they feel. They have support, and they have a strap in the back, no more slipping round the rocks. Sweet. I have just been waiting to get them.

Well, I went to REI today.

I was looking at the chacos I wanted to get, then I saw these:See, a little girl in my court wears these, and they look so cute. I thought, eh, they can't be better. So, I had been doing my research, found out they are about 10 bucks cheaper then the Chacos. So, I decided I would go to REI and check things out. At first, I didn't see them. I thought maybe it just wasn't meant to be. Then, like a beacon in the sky, I found them. (They were literally higher then me. I had to actually look up.) I asked the nice man to get me a pair to try on. I fell in love. They are THE most COMFORTABLE shoes I have ever had on my feet. The way they feel is just divine.

I must have them.

We will be going to the REI garage sale tomorrow. I will get a pair.

They will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine.
*name that movie. If you can, we are best friends.

I wonder, have any of you ever just been SO in love with a material thing? I know, how...materialistic of me, evil...but admit it, you are too. Leave it in a comment. I want to know how many of my friends are just as shallow as I am.

Will has started scooting his way around our home.

Time to move the valuables and keep the floor cleaner!

It's perfectly normal...

...for a stay-at-home mom to be on facebook or blogging for at least 2-2.5 hours a day. SWEET!

Also, my in-laws brought us back Belgium Chocolates from...Belgium.

I wasn't that impressed. Out of 10 chocolates, there was only one I enjoyed.

I'll stick with Hersey's. Thanks.

We're still trying to get W (no, not Bush...the baby) off the swaddle. Sometimes I think I would rather cut off my left foot.

I just finished the 1st season of Bones...and it was amazing.

Little Kenadie was blessed today, she's such a doll! I love my family!

So, this little post, according to my sister-in-law Nikki, is completely normal. And so is the other 3.5 hours I spend chatting on facebook and blog stalking my friends....

oh, wait...it's only 2.5 hours that is normal. Dangit.
