Boys will be Boys... "Redneck Rally"

Okay so let me explain...A couple of months ago, Riley and his friends at work got this wild idea that it would be fun to go race cars. So they all got on KSL and bought these cheap cars, then took them back to the shop where they put bit exhaust pipes on them, roll cages in them and whatever else they wanted to do with them! Then Saturday December 6th we went down to the desert for them to race.This is Riley & Jake's car!
This is a picture of our "convoy" on the way down there. There were 4 cars racing, all being towed on trailers and a whole bunch of spectators.
One of the cars got high-centered!Riley & Jake's car, and Dylan & Zach's car.
Here they all are, lined up and ready to go!

Ryan, Little Riley, Zach, Dylan, Jake, Riley, Jarius & Shawn!

Riley & Jake didn't make it very far in the race. They had some car problems. The other 3 cars raced, I didn't get pictures cause I had my video camera. But it was pretty funny to watch.
Zach & Dylan got a big old gash in the side of their tire! Luckily Dylan was prepared with a bunch of spares!
2nd attempt for Riley & Jake didn't go so well either! The rust on the bumper was dumped out of their gas filter! I think we found the problam!
Surprisingly these boys took very good precautions, preparing for the worse! A roll over! They all had roll cages, they all wore their helmets, and their boss Marc was prepared with a fire extinguisher. But luckily no one got hurt! Oh wait...Riley did get a pretty good bump on his head. But it was when he was loading the car back onto the trailer! I didn't think it was very funny when it happened, but we sure get a kick out of it now!
All & all it was a fun day, even though Riley's car didn't work. They are going to do some more work on it so we can go out another day!
Boys Will Be Boys!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

For Thanksgiving this year we ate with my family! Before dinner was ready we played up in the game room. The boys beat us girls in Foosball, then Riley and I beat Josh & Sommer in pool, and Sommer beat all of us in Darts! We had lots of fun!!!
Josh & his cute Family, playing with puzzles!
Riley wrestling with the kids!!!
Riley & Josh carving the turkey!!!Our dinner table! Sommer, her Grandma & Grandpa! My Grandma & Papa, me, Riley & dad! Not pictured: Mom (she was too busy in the kitchen) and Josh was rounding up the kids!!! It was a yummy meal as always!
After we ate, we sat around and visited for awhile. Then Riley and I headed up to his mom and dads where we stayed until 10:30 visiting and listening to Rich play the guitar and sing! I love to listen to him!
We hope you all had a wonderful Turkey Day!!!!

How about them UTES!!!! 12-0

As many of you know Riley's family are HUGE Ute fans!! So we all got together at Greg & Laura's to watch the Utah vs. BYU game! And can I just say what a game!!!!This is our cute niece Ryann all dressed up in her Ute Cheerleading outfit.
Utes are #1!!!!
Greg & Laura have had a feud going over the last few years with their neighbors who are Cougar fans. So when I got to their house I found BYU signs posted everywhere out front and some Blue & White Balloons!!! After the game was over we all took a balloon and a pin and headed over to their house where we sung the Utah Fight Song and popped the balloons at the end!!!BCS Hear we come!!!!
(p.s. we've heard every excuse in the book as to why BYU lost, but just face it Cougar fans, the Utes just brought their game)

Bridal Shower!!!!

I know this is a little late posting, but I haven't had much time to blog lately! Anyway so Friday Nov 21st, Daddy had a triple hernia surgery! This is a picture of him sick in bed and my bestest friend Callie!!!! In her BYU gear (Go UTES!!!)

Then Saturday the 22nd Mom and I threw my very soon to be sis-in-law a Bridal Shower! We had lots of yummy food, and mom and I both made her a cake!!!
