Ok so we really have been busy....So I'll tell  you all about it : ). 
Last week Doug had Fiddle Camp with Brian and Aaron Ashton.  It was a lot of fun for the kids.  They learned a lot and played some fun games.  The concert was really fun to listen to!  Some of the kids had improv solos for about 2 measures.  I think that was my favorite part and it was definitely the most entertaining.
I have been busy catching up on practicing piano and cleaning the house.  I finally got through the laundry from our long trip so Doug could put all the luggage away.  I'm still in the process of deep cleaning the house (a process that never ends by the way).  It seems like every time I am satisfied with one room we have something to do so I don't get to move on to the next.  But hopefully I can finish up this week.
Mom Hansen's Birthday was on Friday.  It was busy day but we went over after the concert and had birthday cake and played games.  Then on Saturday we went to Indiana Jones and had a blast.  It was a very entertaining movie and we all decided we couldn't see why anyone wouldn't like it as much as the original ones.  
Also on Friday we went rock climbing with Brad, Traci and Alaina.  It was a lot of fun.  We went to a new spot so the climb was a little more challenging for Brad and Doug.  It was a cliff face of lava rock and huge!  They only climbed up about 1/3 of the way.  There were lava rocks covering the ground so Lainy didn't have anywhere she could really go but she still had fun climbing with her Dad. 
Saturday morning we went to the airshow with Brad and Dad. It was way fun to see the planes that were involved in war.  Some of them bombed and sunk ships and were involved in all kinds of missions.  It was especially fun to see the trick planes put on a show.  I don't know how the pilots could stand spiraling towards the earth just for fun.  Scary if you ask me.  It was a nice morning and we all got sunburned staring straight into the sun
: ).
We wanted to find out all the details about putting the tile up in our bathroom so we went to a few stores on Saturday.  We are going to get all the materials and rent a saw so we can just do it ourselves.  I hope we can do it all in a day so we aren't without a shower for very long.  We are hoping to do it this week so I'll post pictures.
Then Sunday came and it was Father's Day.  I called and talked to my Dad and then we had dinner over at Doug's Parents.  We love our Dad's and are so grateful for their examples!  I don't think we could ask for better Fathers.  
Then yesterday I decided we should do something fun for FHE.  So I packed up dinner and we went to the park to have a picnic. The weather finally turned beautiful and it couldn't have been a better day.  So we didn't want to go home after we were done eating so we walked around the park.  Then got some ice cream at Mill Hollow and walked around the block.  We wanted to watch the sunset so we took a drive around and looked at houses (one of our favorite things to do!).  The sun finally started to go down so we drove up by the temple and sat on the grass in front of the chapel to watch the sunset.  It was beautiful and we had a great FHE.
So that is what we've been doing and I'll try to keep ya posted more often : ).

You'd think that with both of you out of school for the summer you'd have a little more free time on your hands! I'm glad you're keeping busy! I'm excited to see your bathroom - let us know if you need any help!

Hey Jessica! It's been so long since I talked to you, and my last two roommates have gone by Jess, but I think you liked Jessie at one point in time . . . oh man. Let's just stick with buddy-o-pal until you say something different. :) What's up?! It's been so great to look at your blog and catch up with your life. You and Doug are SO cute! Wow. I'm doing great and I'm back from the UK. That was a good experience, and one I wouldn't want to pass up. We definitely need to keep in touch. I've decided blogging is just way too cool and fun to only do it when I go on cool trips. :)
much love,
