Zoey Queen of the Outdoors

This last weekend we went camping with our ward from church. We enjoyed taking a day off work to enjoy nature. This was our first camping trip outside our backyard with our new tent(we went last year but used my Dad's tent). We went up to Payson and pitched our tent in a premo spot! We had Chick-fil-a for dinner then had S'mores for a nice treat over the camp fire.

In the morning we made omelets in a Dutch oven that were tasty and healthy. Zoey didn't eat much because her best friend had pancakes so she mooched off of them.

We had all day Friday to have fun and enjoy time away from the city. We got a little bored so we took a drive to check out other camp sites in Payson. We ended up going to Tonto Creek to go to the hatchery but got side tracked when we saw a catch a fish pond. Charity and Zoey were able to go fishing. Before we started I got the low down on the rules and I'm glad I did! You pay a buck for food and a pole and can catch fish all day long. However, If you catch it you buy it. The lady said each fish will be about $8. So, I put some food on the line and before Zoey could grab it I had a fish on the line. Luckily, Zoey was delayed with the net so it fell back in the pond. I got a little smarter the second time... I let them fish with no bate for 5 minutes! Once they got bored with that I put some bate on the line and handed the pole to Zoey. She did great till I said she got a fish and she ran away for safety. The girls were good at catching the fish in the net! Charity had a turn catching a fish too and also ran away when I told her she caught a fish. So with 2 fish in our bucket we checked out. I paid $1 for a pole, $1 for the lady to clean both fish and cut the heads off, and $8 for each fish... all for 10 minutes of fun! I really would have paid more for her to clean the fish! After our fun we went back to camp and roasted the fish in foil with butter, seasoning and lemon juice. The girls each had a bite and I finished it for lunch(Brit only had the guts to document the experience and pull the hook out of the fishes mouth).
We had successful foil dinners with Emeril's Essence seasoning. Brit was impressed because he never had one that turned out right. Then I made a delicious Blueberry Peach Cobbler that was not on weight watchers but yummy!
It was a tasty and fun experience and are excited to do it again soon.
Who wants to takes us rough girls on a real fishing trip?

Zoey's revenge...

So here I am looking for photos and I found that Zoey has gotten her revenge... for all the embarrassing photos that I will show her future boyfriends. She is just now starting her revenge at the age of 4!!!

The reason behind the blog

So the real reason I am starting a blog is because I have not touched my scrapbook stuff in 2 years! The other night at HFPE I learned an amazing thing(it was on blogs, digital scrap booking and journal writing). Anyway, They showed us how to turn your blog into a BOOK! Hello, that is totally awesome! How come none of you blog savvy people never told me about that??? I am totally excited hence the blog...hope you enjoy.
P.S. I know nothing about blogging except to type and post... so feedback and tips are welcome!

Pictures on my blog

Pictures will be posted but they will be delayed... Personal rule...No uploading pics at work!


Over the weekend we painted the formal sitting room. It is really nice. We ended up going with a dark forest green and then we did a brown rag roll in 11inch stripes. It looks really cool. We can't decide if we want to do 1 wall, 2 walls or all the walls with stripes...what do you think?

We also went to the Stake Temple night on Sat and had an interesting experience. We heard a cell phone go off in the middle of the session. I needed lots of help from Heather because of my broken hand and Heather lost her paper... It was a unique temple day.
