Trip to Idaho

Last weekend Rachel and I went to Nampa, Idaho (next to Boise) with my parents, my nephew (Ashton), and my sister Lisa and her children (Brandon, Kate, and Dayton). We went to Idaho because my niece Amanda Miller was getting baptized. This view from the backseat of my dad's van was what I was looking at for about 12 hours :) We had fun watching movies on the way up and back. On Saturday we had her baptism at the Stake Center and then went to the park to have a BBQ.

American Idol Racist?

I heard on a popular talk show that they were claiming American Idol is racist against the black contestants. Have they ever heard of "Ruben Studdard" or "Fantasia"? Two of the five winners have been black!

Ana Bartlett's Wedding

Ana Bartlett (Rachel's sister) was married on Saturday to Cody Kimbrough. The ceremony and reception were held in a conference room at the Orem La Quinta. The vows were especially touching. Cody gave his vows to Ana and promised her daughter that he'd be a good father to her for the rest of her life.

Basement Under Construction

This last week I've been spending my evenings working on finishing my basement with my dad and brother. Right now we're working on the framing of the exterior walls. We hope to be able to finish framing tomorrow morning so we can move on to hvac and electrical next week.
