Rail Jam 2008!!!

Have I mentioned that I have the coolest husband EVER lately??? Well, if I havent - he is. Last weekend we went to the Rail Jam and Casey and his buddies hit the rails quite a few times.
For those of you who dont know what the Rail Jam is, Ski n See holds this event once a year in their parking lot. It is sponsered by DNA and the last 3 hours of the event is a competition where the winner wins $1000 and goes on to the Nation Competition in Vegas to compete for a sponsership with DNA.
Anyway, so that is where we spent last Saturday. I was a little worried about those we went with as EVERY single one of the hit hard their first time down...but they quickly redeemed themselves and I got quite the show!!!
It costs $100 to do the actual competition so Casey didnt want to do it, but he did a great job.
Here is Casey getting ready to go...

Car for sale...

So my parents are selling the super sweet family car since they only have 1 kid left at home so I thought I’d put the word out since most of you that read this still have quite a few little ones around.
Anyway, it is a GMC Sport Utility 2004 Yukon XL. It has 62500 Miles and 5 doors, 4 wheel drive and is an automatic.
It is in SUPER good condition and has been detailed numerous times by my one and only Casey (so you know it looks good!).
Here are a couple of pics...


Asking price is $17,295

Getting Caught Up... V-Dub Cookout

I know, I know - those of you who have been pestering me to post something new are so proud that I have successfully posted two days in a row! WooHoo for me!
The month started out with the Van Wagoner cookout up American Fork Canyon

...we all made tin foil dinners and through them in the fire-pit for a yummy dinner! I must admit, that our dinner really wasnt that fantastic as it was the first time I had made one - but hey, at least I did it.

My most favorit part was roasting the mallows! One of my most favorite things EVER!!!

Here is Casey and cute Matix.

Little Kendyll is such a doll - I went and took the Catmulls family pictures last night and have NEVER heard her talk that much - it was so sweet. And, she even calls me "Shell"

And Casey's most favorite buddy Drew ~

Summer Lovin Had Us A Blast...

What happened to July? My idea of summer all happens in the month of July - and boy, did it happen all to fast.
So, here are a couple things of what Casey and I did last month...
First off, we have been renting a townhome in Draper for the last 9 months and actually really enjoyed it there. Besides the fact that it was only a 1 bedroom townhome and a little too small for the "entertaining" that Casey and I enjoy doing - we loved it. But at the beginning of the month -- we closed on our new home and moved in. We have been looking for a house that we both LOVED since before we got married, but we finally found it!

Isnt it cute? The inside is almost finished being decorated, so I will post some more pics when it is. Just as a side note - Jenn's husband was our realtor and did an awesome job, so if anyone needs a trustworthy and fantastic realtor let me know!!!
One of our very favorite things to do is spend our weekends out on the lake. With Casey's job, he gets to take out these super expensive boats and we just have a blast with friends and family. I think it is safe to say that we successfully made it to the lake at least once a week but usually twice. It was so much fun and we all had a great time.
This is Casey spinning on his board - I have such an athletic husband who can do the coolest things. Not to mention his sweet flips that he wowed my parents with...

FIREWORKS!!! The 4th of July is by far my most favorite holiday. I love the fireworks, the sound they make and the smell they put off. I honestly just love the whole atmosphere that comes with it.

For the 4th of July, Casey and I went to the BUZZ game with my good friends Laurie and Jenn and their husbands. Us girls had a good time for sure - there is nothing better than a ballpark hotdog and a snowcone. Not to mention...They had killer fireworks after the game - SWEET!

Laurie and I.

For the 24th of July the Van Wagoner family all got together at my sister n' law Stacy's house. They have this huge blow up waterslide that the kids love...and that Casey and Corey love too! Casey cant wait to have one of his own one day (just kidding babe!) But Casey loves taking the little ones down the slide that are scared to go by themselves. It really is cute. I have the funniset picture of Casey and Corey (Casey's older brother) in the pool area at the bottom of the slide just laughing histerically at each other - but I think they would both kill me for posting it.

Casey and Corey...I swear this whole post really is about them...Had a game of add on on the tramp and little Bode was so cute watching them, everytime they did a flip he would get really really excited and start waving his hands all over the place and end it with the sweetest smile. It was too cute.

After the water games we had a yummy BBQ and headed across the street to have a softball game. For some reason Casey and I always get put on seperate teams and I have to be one of the most competitive people ever...so of course my team won!!! Just kidding! But we did.
Here we are - the picture didnt turn out so great. And then the other team - check out Corey's face Alisha gave him a good one!

Oh, and it was my birthday on the 17th. I got a coffee table and a sofa table (I know so exciting, but it is what I wanted) Then we headed off to Mulligans to play some miniture golf with Dave and Cristie. - You still owe us candy by the way! Then ended it with Coldstone!
Well there are a couple things we did in July!
