On Vacation Part 2!!!!





Well,,, finally settling into the daily grind again but wishing we were still on the water. But does anyone really ever want to come home from Vacation? Now that Jon has finally got the pictures in order we are proud to present the 2011 vacation slide show, enjoy. Our vacation started on July 15th as we ventured to Lake Havasu, Arizona for 4 days visiting Jon's parents who live in Arizona, spending time with mom, dad, aunt, uncle, and of course the POOL! And let me tell you, the pool got a workout from us. Top that off with good food, the sights, and just flat out relaxing with the kids made it a much rewarding experience. We then traveled to Lake Powell in Page, Arizona for another 5 days where we stayed with more of Jon's Family. We stayed with Christain and Heather Jon's brother and sister and also were accompanied by Jon's parents in Utah who didn't want to miss out on the fun. We enjoyed being on the lake during the day and hanging with the family at night, not to mention the sights, fishing, boating, swimming,,, well you get the point. We Seamans folk are water trolls, we love our water... The time away as a family was a much needed experience and we couldn't get enough of the sunshine and the heat. The kids couldn't get enough swimming in the day, and Sarah just soaked up the Arizona heat, Jon didn't think Sarah could get any hotter, Jon was wrong... Thanks to everyone who made this trip possible. From the vehicles, the lodging arrangements, the entertainment, to the food, you made this trip a for sure memory.
Enjoy the slide show..

Sushi Anyone!!!



So Jon's Aunt and Uncle were visiting from Southern California and came over for a night of take out from our favorite Chinese restaurant. Jon decided to break out the Sushi skills and made a platter for everyone to share. It was yummy and didn't go to waste.

Happy 24th of July!!!!

We returned home from our family vacation just in time for the neighborhood fireworks to celebrate the 24th of July (one of those silly Utah holidays when the Mormon Pioneers settled in the Salt Lake Valley). The kids enjoyed a different type of entertainment that night, after the 6 hour drive they were tired of the mp3 players, Nintendo DSi's, or DVD's in the car. Oh and the the radiator hose burst on the car within 2 hours of being home,,, Oh well, back to reality...

Happy 4th Everybody!!!






Well to wouldn't be a true 4th of July Without a Parade.

We started out the day with a flag Ceremony and Pancake breakfast at the Church which Jon did the sound system for (a DJ's work is never done). We then took the family to the West Jordan Parade and enjoyed the free for all of candy, then ventured over to a local park to enjoy the 4th of July festivities, booths, food, games, playgrounds, etc. And what would the 4th of July be without barbequed hamburgers and fireworks. We indulged in Jon's jalapeno, onion, and garlic patties with pepper jack cheese (Mmmmm) and all your traditional fixings that go with a barbeque. Then we enjoyed a well displayed firework show from the neighbor next door with the family.

Just a thank you to all the our service men and women who serve, fight, and sacrifice all they do to give us the freedoms we have and sometimes don't appreciate enough.
