We went fishing at Rainbow reservoir on Tuesday. It was fun. I caught 1 fish and dustin caught 3. Miaya is reeling in the fish I caught with Dustin. hahaha. She loves the fish and always wants to squish the silly things. Gross. But she loves it. She has her own fishing pole, but we were busy enough just keeping an eye on our poles and her, so we opted to just use ours. Miaya loves the water and the plants and the birds too. She kept trying to get really close to the water. It freaks me out! She's so carefree, she doesn't mind getting wet or muddy or having algae in her toes. The messier she is, the more fun she's having. haha. Good times.

He didn't have his seatbelt on or anything, and he came out completely unscathed. We were even able to pull his jeep right side up. It was insane to see. Unreal. Everyones fine though, in case you were wondering.
Someone is watching out for us because we were able to get his jeep down the canyon, and to a gas station without any power to his jeep. We towed him down. Anyone who has seen 400 N. in Bountiful would remember how steep it is. It was fine, though. He was able to get it running at the gas station, drove it to a friends house to park it for the night, and we were able to get home. But on the way home, our alternator went out. We made it from Bountiful to West Valley on battery power only at midnight. We got to our house, and the jeep died on the lawn. We are watched over for sure. haha.
Oh yeah, I forgot we also broke a front axle shaft while we were pulling Danny out. Just your average wheeling trip. Something always breaks. :)

It's summer. hahaha. Miaya loves her little sunglasses. She loves them so much she wore them in the bath this morning.
The picture on top is Miaya in her little summer pajamas. These shorts are short! But adorable on her, and perfectly suitable for pajamas. I think it's really that she has these super long legs too, though.
I was hoping to take her swimming, but all the swimming pools around here do lessons in the morning and "open plunge", which means people who aren't taking lessons, in the afternoon, when I have no time for swimming. We will eventually, so be looking for those pics. :)

So I have read a little bit of Stephenie Meyer's new book, Breaking Dawn. I am more excited than I should be. But I am. Soooooooo very excited. If you want to read it, here it is. I suggest you read the other three books first. Sooo good though.
Next, I am reading a new book called The Book Theif by Markus Zusak. I've never read anything by him, and it's interesing, because his style is unlike anything I've ever read. Trying a new author out is like trying a new flavor. Each is different and has things one likes and doesn't like. I'm liking this new book so far. It's good.
And since I can't find my camera to put a picture of Miaya up, here is another delicious picture of Antelope Island. By the way, I put my feet in that water. It hurt. Well, the salt stung my skin. I think it was because I had shaved my legs that morning, and it was a very unpleasant sensation. That's all.

Butterfield Canyon is a bit precarious. On one side of the road is mountain. On the other is air. And cliff and trees and rocks that are hundreds of feet below. Well, maybe not, but still, there really is a whole bunch of air. We finally closed on our refinance on Friday evening. We went for a drive up Butterfield Canyon to kill some time before-hand. It was chilly.
