Tripping with the Merkley's

So this last weekend we went to St. George with my family. My parents own a time share and are kind enough to share it with the family.We stayed at a beautiful condo that was huge, had a very comfortable bed that you had to pull out the wall and smelled like roses...haha I cant say I felt bad when I got voted to stay in a extra room:) No but really we had a great time with the family just like we always do, we went to the pool, shopping, movie, played games and of course went hiking (my little brother requests that on our next family vacation we do NOT do any physical activity) We really enjoyed watching my dad nearly have a heart attack after I jumped out at him from a crack in the wall while hiking (sorry dad your just an easy target.) also watching him almost go the round with an officer after the cop cut in line...Do you have a problem Sir?Everyone knows it wouldn't be a real Merkley vacation if we didnt come home with a few funny stories. Thanks Mom and Dad for planning it we had a great time! Love you guys so much!

This weekend we drove down to slc and meet up with some of my family. We all went to dinner together and then some of us headed to Nightmare on 13th street. It was really fun to see everyone and get together although I will not go back to that haunted house again, for how much money they charge it was not worth it. I was very disapointed. Thanks to everyone who came it was fun to see all of you, love you guys!

Good Old Vernal

So this last weekend Dave and I took a trip to Vernal to spend a little time with the family. We were able to watch my little sister preform at the football game where she looked AWESOME! I'm so excited to see how the drill team does this year at state. If all their hard work pays off they will sweep it again like they did last year:) Keep up the good work Meg your so good at what you do. I love you!!

Also I was able to learn how to can salsa. WOW that was... well to be honest, not fun I mean I loved spending time with my mom and learn a good life skill but I don't know if it is something I will be doing again next year. Haha I felt like a duck out of water my mom was asking me to "blanch" the tomatoes and "water bath" the jars! I had to look around to make sure she was talking to me because I had NO idea what she was talking about. But we had a great time with each other and I now know what blanching and water bating are plus we made a lot of salsa. Thanks again mom I love you so so much and am so greatful for you!
