Bringing you up to speed...

A LOT of things have been going on around here lately. Some days I feel like a dog chasing my tail. Ever since the kids got out of school it has been one thing or another. We went on the pioneer trek.....

This is some of our girls on the very last part of the trek.The one in the middle had a bruised ankle from being run over by the hand cart on the first day, but she still wanted to walk the whole trail. "Way to go Monica!!!We are proud of ya!"

This is my beautiful niece Mary Katherine. We kidnapped her and took her with us to the store. Shhh...don't tell.=) Also don't tell her I put this picture up...she would KILL me!
You may have wondered what we got at the store. Well we got.....steaks , potatoes, corn on the cob, stuff for breakfast, eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits. You know camping food, since we were "ruffing it". It was SOOOOOO good!=)

Here is my Dad,Roger Johnson, and Nathan(and Debbie's legs and arms=) at the Johnson's sweet set up. They had everything you would ever need to be comfortable.They do re-enactments so they know how to camp!

Here's Debbie!=) Also my baby brother Aaron. I am glad he got to come too. He is an AWESOME brother! Love ya Aaron!
Here is the video of "Brigham's speech" for before the entered the Salt Lake Valley. Watch at your own risk. My camera skills are not good at all.It is REALLY shaky!The gun shots you here are a little early, some of the boys were trigger happy.(you know who you are Dalton.=)

No this isn't some furry animal. This is SOME of Nathan's hair after we got back from the trek. He wanted it all cut off!I turned 34 this year. Yeah!This is the party that the girls did for me and Mandi. Sorry I was kind of out of it.=)

Also we had a baby shower for Mandi. She left us to go home to Utah. Sigh. We...miss...ya ...girl.sniff...sniff.
So that is all I want to post for right now. It gives ya a good idea of the ramblings from the Harward Home.

I love your pioneer trek pictures. It brings me back a lot of memories from when I was a young woman. It's a good reminder of how little we have to go through compared to the pioneers.

Awesome post! I love seeing what you've been up to - and you look great as a pioneer. At first I didn't believe that was Nathan with his big beard and all. I bet he was sure proud! :) Jeremy tries to grow a beard long, but then he gets all itchy and cuts it. LOL

Wish I could have been there for your party. I MISS YOU!!!

BTW, I posted some quotes on my blog that you might appreciate.

OK, let me start at the beginning....
The trek looked like so much fun. I love the picture of Brigham and his 1st in charge wife. The picture above with all of the "younger" wives looks, shall we say, like a freakin' hot day. Way to lay down the law there Briggy! The food that you guys so graciously kidnapped your niece to go with you and get looks amazing. Wife #2 in the plaid dress doesn't look too happy. The video looks as if it had a severe case of terets. Dude, I just got the vomit taste out of my mouth. LOL! Was Bro. Dalton shooting birds during the most important speech while at trek? I think you guys didn't read the instructions for the miracle grow closely enough before applying it to that Chi-Pet~ ROTFL! I must say that your b-day cake looks B-U-T-FUL, even if I did pick it out. It was so dang good too. I know I gained 5 lbs from eating (the whole thing, I mean) a piece of it~ I'm glad that the baby shower was a surprise~ Love the doll that she got also. Did Stef give her that? Dang woah-man, you've been on Fie-UH!

I luff those pictures of the trek- I don't know why but they are soo cool! I so them weeks ago and thought they were totally rad and then of course I didn't have the internet to comment on them afterward.

But whew the pictures of that fat girl on the very bottom- wow. Yowsers. Thanks for not posting some of the worser ones that I'm sure you had! ;)

Blast from the past
