Here - There - Everywhere

This "blog thing" brings back memories of yearbook deadlines at NSHS and knowing that I'll never outsmart the computer! I've been hopelessly trying to rotate some pictures to add to this blog page . . . no such luck!  Anyway, here's a recap of the week:  Monday, Ashley, Halle, and I spent the day in Salina visiting our families.  Halle loved riding in Kent's "Gator," watching the baby birds in the trees, and picking up all the green apples from Grandpa Wayne's yard.  We spent lunch with my parents and Kemarie at El Mexicano--oh, I miss those chips and salsa!  On Wednesday, Craig left for three days of site visits to the county jails from Daggett to Grand County, and I spent at least an hour trying to get to Bingham High School for an English meeting. (Needless to say, I'll be taking I-15 once school starts with all the road construction on Redwood Road.)  Ryan, Bethany, and Audrey  let me tag along with them that evening to see Jordan Sparks at an outdoor concert in Orem.  She was great, but just about everyone around us spent the evening watching Audrey "move to the groove!"   I told Ryan that he had better get ready for years of dance and/or singing recitals!  Today (Friday), Craig raced back to his offices for an afternoon meeting with Governor Huntsman.  Craig, as usual, didn't seem too excited--he was just glad to get home and mow the lawn!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Craig, Devin, and I just returned from a week-long trip to the Midwest.  Any vacation at the Burr household (according to Devin) simply means "visiting another Major League Baseball park!"  This year, we scratched off three more fields from the list with games at the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, and Chicago White Sox baseball fields.  However, I managed to squeeze in some other fun things to our itinerary:  seeing the Broadway play Wicked, touring Indiana (Craig's first trip back since he served there as a missionary), spending a night at the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville.   After a week, we certainly won't miss staying in another La Quinta for quite some time, but we'd love to return to the Chicago area again.  The museums are certainly a "must see" for anyone visiting Chicago!  

Hot Fun in the Summertime!

Halle and Audrey tried out Grandma's new swimming pool yesterday.  I had always dreamed of a pool in the back yard for swimming laps; however, this inflated pool wasn't quite what I had in mind.  The girls simply loved the J.C. Penney version--especially the second time around when they jumped in again--with their clothes and shoes on!

A New Adventure

I'm finally jumping on the blogging bandwagon.  I hope this will be a great way to keep up with friends and family.  I'll post more later.
