::RIP to the King of Pop::

Today is a really really sad day in my world. Jeremy will totally make fun of me for even blogging about this but it is very significant in my world. I LOVE the King of Pop. Anyone who can move like he does and have THE best songs ever deserves my love and I will miss him greatly. Now don't get me wrong he is a weirdo and a creepo but his music is still great. It's just hard to believe that 2 very short weeks ago my father was in Cardiac Arrest and I found out today poor Michael has passed and left his 3 children.

I also need to give a shout out to Farrah Facet for sharing her date of death with Michael but I didn't have a connection with Farrah like I did with Michael.

::Only in Utah::

Only in Utah can you be celebrating Father's Day on June 21st (which happens to be the first day of Summer) and have hail. Yes that is right it hailed on Father's day and we had to stop our BBQ/Swim party for about 15 minutes. Here area couple of pictures, they are not very good but in the first picture you can see the little white spots are the hail, in the second picture I tried to capture the hail ripples in the pool!

::End of Baseball::

Well, the sad day has come and baseball is officially over! We are not sure what we are going to do now for the rest of the summer but we had a great time going to the games while they lasted!
Here he is with his certificate and his $50 Visa gift card!

West Jordan had a hit-a-thon during the season and asked the players to raise money for up keep on the field, to pay the umpires, to get new score boards, etc, etc, etc. Well Bryson collected $350 bucks and won a $50 Visa gift card because he was second place in the PeeWee league! Then they announced that they had every PeeWee coach nominate a player on their team that they felt exhibited great sportsmanship and guess what ... Yep Bryson won that too! He got a big trophy and a certificate, he thought he was the coolest kid ever because only 3 PeeWee players won this award! (sorry I don't have a great picture of him with his prizes.)

Here he is running back to his team after getting his trophy! He was stoked.

We are so proud of Bryson and can't believe how much he has grown in this sport this past year. Thanks to his wonderful coach Bryson has gotten more confidence in learning this sport and wanting to play this sport more and more. We can't wait until next year and he gets to be on the same team so that will be great!

Here is a not so great picture of his team! GO MARINERS!!!!

::Happy Father's Day::

Jeremy is the best father and husband ever! I am so lucky to spend my life with this man and I couldn't ask for anyone better! He is the best father ever and Bryson means the world to him. He would do anything for him (and pretty much does) and I love that about him! I can't wait till we have kiddies of our own so that I can see him as a daddy to more children!
Then there is the this man... what can I say about this man! He is my hero, my savior, my everything. I could not imagine my life with out him. With the scare he gave us a couple weeks ago this Father's day really changed things and I was so grateful to have him here with us and hope he is here with us for many many more Father's days!Then there are these three fabulous men (sorry I know it's not the greatest of pictures but it was all I had!) I love my in-laws more than anything and I am so grateful that they accepted me into their lives especially knowing they never thought Jeremy would get married! I have the greatest father-in-law ever. I love chatting with him and hanging with him and I know he would do anything for Jeremy and I (and any of his kids really!) Then there is Kirk (the one on the left) he is the father of 4 and is the best dad to them. I can see how much his kids love and respect him and they are growing up to be the greatest kiddies ever. Lane, Lane, Lane .. what to say about Lane. He is the best dad ever. I love watching him coach Hunter's games and push Hunter to be the best b/c we all know he can be! Thanks for everything you 3 men do for us! We greatly appreciate you!
This is just a random picture that I found and LOVE of the 2 of them.

::2 Years and Counting::

Note: I did start this on my actually anniversary June 9, 2009!

Wow, so today Jeremy and I have been married for 2 years. Crazy how fast this time has gone! I love this man with every fiber of my being and I couldn't imaging my life with out him.Our first date was onMay 31, 2003 at the Old Spaghetti Factory. It was fabulous. Since that time we have been together non-stop and loved every minute of it (at least I have!) Jeremy and I started looking for engagement rings roughly around September 2006. I picked out my perfect ring and Jeremy picked it up sometime around October 2006. Now I know you are all thinking that I got it sometime shortly thereafter, but you would be wrong! I actually didn't get my ring until 12:01 am on January 1, 2007. I loved it. I told Jeremy he was not allowed to propose to me anytime during December before Christmas because I didn't want this to be his excuse to not buy me any presents (yes I am that selfish) so he just held on to the ring. I still don't think he was actually planning on proposing on New Year's eve but he just decided that night was as good as any. And considering we already had our wedding day planned it was good he did it then.
We had 6 months to plan the wedding which to some is a short time but as stated above we had been together for 4 years by this time so of course I knew EXACTLY what I wanted our wedding to be like, basically Jeremy didn't really have an option or say in anything except the music. Trust me he didn't care! We were married at 4 pm on Saturday June 9, 2007 and then the party began. I loved our wedding day. I want to do it every year but my dad would kill me since it was kind of expensive the first time! By the time we got married we were both so ready to be Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland and Bryson! I love our little family and couldn't ask for anything more!

I want Jeremy to know how much I love him and Bryson and love that they allowed me to be part of their lives!
Here's to the rest of our lives together! I love you so much and thank you for the best 2 married years and 6 years together of my life!

::What a Week::

Where to begin!!! Last Tuesday June 2 my mom received a phone call from the fire department. They had just taken my father to Jordan Valley Hospital because he had a severe heart attack. Yeah crazy huh! He had a 99% blockage in his main artery to his heart so they placed a stint to open up the artery and now he is better than ever! Seriously, he was released from the hospital on Thursday morning and by Friday afternoon he had gotten all his yard work done. He is crazy but very healthy and happy! We are so grateful that he was ok things could have been so much worse! Thank you to all who called and visited we really appreciate your concern!
