Dear Family & Friends

I really like ice cream! In fact I like ice cream so much that when my momma let me have a lick or two I wanted the whole thing!! So I grabbed it~ momma tried to keep it away from me, but I'm pretty strong and I won!! Well until daddy helped

so I thought that I would eat the napkin instead--she wasn't paying attention she was trying to get my mess cleaned up!
Well guys that is about all I have to tell you right now, but I sure do love that cookies and cream ice cream!


Three Bears Creamery Cottage & Zion

After we went to the North Rim, then down to buy me some Jewelery from the Indian ladies we headed to Kanab, Josh was craving some DQ.....but we didn't think there was a DQ in Kanab so we found this cute little place that served ice cream. I got a ginormous waffle cone with cookies and cream ice cream and Josh had a sunday type dessert with cheesecake and ice cream and strawberries--he liked it but he said it wasn't big enough :) We all know Josh and his ice cream!
They had the cutest little Baby bear and momma bear and poppa bear chairs I couldn't resist the pics!
Braxton in Baby Bears Chair....yep mom it's just right!:)

After we had our ice cream we headed to Zion, Josh hadn't ever been through the top of Zion so it was fun.....we stopped to take this pic and a mosquito bit me! I couldn't believe it--it's been 5 or more years since i've been bit~ Then we got stopped by this herd of big horn sheep....we watched them for a while it was fun, they were bucking at each other and running back and forth across the road!
We continued on down the road and Josh got to experience the tunnel! He was amazed at how long it was, and how much rock was above his head! Braxton wasn't a fan of the dark, he started screaming...weird! But we had a fun time on our break from being sick!!

Now we are home and back at work, well I am, Josh got worse as I got better. What started out as a cold progressed to the not the H1N1 you may ask he is lucky in that aspect. He woke up Thursday morning with a temp of 102 degrees. He went into the insticare and they confirmed the Flu and prescribed bed rest. He is doing a bit better but he still has no energy and coughs and wheezes if he is up doing anything for too long. The worst part about it, our little man is now coughing and has a runny nose. He has also had a diarrhea a few times--hopefully it will not persist into this week!

North Rim

For Labor Day Josh & I decided that we were done being sick and sitting around the house, so we headed to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We had a run ride was a lot longer to the rim from the turn off then either of us remembered :) When we got there we went to the lodge and on the little scenic walk with Braxton! It was so fun to hear everyone say how lucky he was to be in the stroller.

So we were hiking back to the Lodge and this squirrel was just sitting on the trail he moved as Josh put his foot down to step--so we thought he deserved to be part of out post!

Johnson Family Pics

All of the events were in HONOR of Julie's 60th Birthday! Though she didn't have a clue she just thought that since Tom was comming up that everyone decided to come up and take pics! Boy did we have her fooled!

We took Family pics at Wheeler Farms this are one's that I took in between all the individual family shots.

Braxton's first trip to Lagoon!

Braxton's very first roller coaster was......none other than Puff the Magic Dragon! He didn't cry or scream he just hung on! It was so cute when we went down the first hill, he gasped! I loved it! I think he is definitely going to be a thrill seeker!
Josh had to be the cool daddy and win Braxton a prize! He was so cute he even made sure he had extra cash before we went in so that he could play some of the games! He won him this cute big tweety bird by popping like 15 balloons at darts! Braxton absolutely loves it!! He wouldn't let go, it was so stinkin cute :) Rattle Snake Rapids....need I really say more? Josh hung behind with Julie and the baby's ( he didn't want to walk around wet all day!) But he snapped some good pics! Our boat was Tom, Dalilah, Jack, Jamie, Chase and I. We were doing great just getting wet enough Dalilah was loving it laughing at everyone; then we went under the waterfall and got drenched, I mean Tom Dalilah and I didn't have a dry spot on us! This was when Dalilah decided that she didn't really like the ride and was going to cry the rest of the time. Poor girl :(

This is after the ride, my shirt is really a light color of green, and no I don't have nine pounds of hairspray in my hair to make it look that wet!! Josh just hanging out with the lil' ones-- Braxton and Ashlyn!
We had a fun time at Lagoon it was super crowded, and quite warm, but it was fun to have the whole Johnson family together just hanging out!
