Meeting Sarah

Our sister-in-law had a layover in Salt Lake today on her way from Alaska to Colorado for Thanksgiving. We all went to breakfast and spent three or four hours just visiting - it was a wonderful time...

We Own This!

As of today (well the check will technically post on Monday), Oliver and I own this car - a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5! Mind you we own a nice blue one that is missing a side view mirror...but own it we do.
I just love paying off debt it makes me feel so free and it assures me that I am doing what I have been commanded to do!

Kyle's First Bowling

We haven't gotten to spend any time with Holly, Evan and Kyle in these last two weeks. We were really excited to get together for dinner (cooked by the fabulous Holly), dollar ice cream cones and a game of bowling. Our little nephew is now two months old but he still only weighs 8 lbs. I was born heavier than that so I don't know what that was like. He is getting a strong neck and like to stand up. Here is being Superman...
After dinner we headed to a bowling alley to play for awhile. We have the baby, the balls and most importantly, the hand sanitizer.

Amidst passing the baby around we bowled a pretty horrible game. Here is Evan...Oliver...
And Holly...
By the tenth frame Kyle was ready to be fed and go home. Some really bad music, disco balls and white lights came on and he was not the happiest camper.
See, I told you, we all bowled really badly. I am sure next time will be better and then, maybe Kyle will be old enough to roll his own ball.

Have You Been To Rome...?

Oliver and I are trying to finalize the details for our trip next May. The last major detail is our hotel selection while we are in Rome. I have been reading online reviews and searching, but we would love some advice from someone who has been...

I have been quite displeased with the reviews I have read because several people have been complaining about the tv channel selection in their hotel rooms. Who cares! You are in Rome! Why are you concerned that there aren't enough English tv channels to choose from? People also complain about the distance from the city center - 15 minutes on the bus is just too long for some people I guess.

So I am looking for a more balanced viewpoint of people that we love and trust - Does anyone have some suggestions where to stay while in Rome?
