Randomness...

Look at what Bradly Boy bought me!!!!!!
Do you have a bike? Do you like to ride?
















Labor Day...
We had a BBQ with friends... Dallin was trying to teach Chad how to do a flip off the edge of the pool... here is Dal (backwards)...














Chad trying a front flip, he tried and tried...














Blake flew out to Seattle today to get his car, and then he is driving over to Rexburg, back to school. Blake, it was nice to have you home for a short period of time! Enjoy Rexburg... that is a joke, I KNOW YOU WILL!!! I already miss you.... Love you!














Derek & Brittany are in Rexburg all settled into their apartment... I wish I had pictures of Britt driving her "new" truck all across Montana FILLED to the brim and then some with all of their stuff. Oh, wait. Their stuff, Devin & Diana's stuff AND Blake's stuff... LOL (Britt, I hope you took pics!)



















Devin & Diana get back from their cruise today. They were scheduled to go to the Bahama's but due to the storms the cruise line called them and rerouted them. Devin wasn't too thrilled to say the least but I am sure they had a great time! I can't wait to see pictures (They were celebrating their 1 year anniversary!) And, NO, I have NEVER been on a cruise!!! What is wrong with that picture??!!! LOL

Okay, speaking of randomness... Tammy has this dang funny post you need to go read!!! (Just click on her name) Which ward would YOU belong to? °Ü°

AND, Tai Pan Trading has opened in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!!!! Can you say EX CITED? Oh yeah.! I want to go get a few fall accessories! Have you ever shopped here before?

AND, I would like to do a nice big family portrait with my whole family (there are 17 of us - parents, my family, & my brother's family). So, my question is... WHAT WOULD YOU WEAR? I have thought... jeans & white shirts??? OR jeans & black shirts??? OR khaki instead of jeans? OR fall colors??? (reds & golds, etc) WHAT WOULD YOU SUGGEST??!!!! What do you like best?

Oh you are so lucky! First a bike, and then Tai Pan? Totally not fair. I have done so much shopping at UT's Tai Pan, I deserve to have one open here in my honor.

Your pool is beautiful! It took us forever to decide on ours, it's fun to see other people's and realize things we should've added or done differently.

I WISH that was OUR pool!!! That is our good friends... And, you are right, it is beautiful!!!

Wish you lived closer, I would pick you up and take you to Tai Pan with me!!!

I'd love to have a bike...but it would need a tractor seat for my big ole butt...otherwise...the pain would outway the pleasure of a nice little ride!

tammy said...

You're too funny.

Okay, family pics....I just saw one somewhere, and they all were wearing light blue and brown and it looked really nice. Go to this blog: http://hopeandbelieve.blogspot.com/
and then click on some of the links at the side for inspiration. She has tons of talented people listed.

I love the bike! I wish you lived close by so we could go biking together...wouldn't that be fun!

It would also be fun to go to Tai Pan...I've never been!

Family pictures...I've seen them done in tan/white and jeans/white. Truthfully, they all look great. I can't wait to see what you all choose.

We haven't done family pictures in a while...hubby and I always want to lose weight first. If we wait for that, we may never take family pictures again!

I love riding my bike especially here in Southern Ca. I think you have to have one. I love your new bike it is very hip. I have never heard of Tai Pan but it looks like a store I will love I am hoping its open because I am going to go next week with my mom. It's only 20 minutes from my house.

McEwens said...

YEAH !! you got a bike that you have been wanting!! GO chad!!

Mechelle said...

Go to my web site and click on FAQ. I have a LOT of information on what to wear. It even tells you what colors tend to Slenderize! I always want to know that.

I don't like jean and white t-shirts. There is no contrast and everyone just looks like one big blob to me. But I am a photographer and I am VERY picky.

I think if you say, "Everyone wear black, tan and/or white, that will give your portrait depth.

Like Tammy, I also like blue and browns.

Email if you want me to go on and on. gr8photos@hotmail.com

Drake Family said...

I just went on a bike ride this morning..with the babies of course. I love Tai Pan too but luckily they got one in St. G about a year ago. As far as your fam. pic. idea...I do love a fall background. We have done navy shirts before...for the boys and white for the girls. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Nancy said...

So, where is the new Tai Pan store? I must know!

Ms. Tee said...

I have never heard of Tai Pan, but we're in the south! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I want to bookmark you so I can come back and read some more. :)

rofl,, loved it! I would belong to the nudist anger management concealed weapon ward! LOL, I am just like a cat and curiosity and humor would get me. i have a bit of anger issues, but I tend to take the humor side to things and well, where would I hide my weapon??

NOooooo, NOT THERE! LOL, gutter heads.

Mother Goose said...

I like the bike too! I have a bike. I have not ridden it in 3 years! I am AFRAID TO! what if my butt has gotten so big that when I sit on the seat the seat would look like it had been swallowed right up? just exactly how big of a seat would I need?? I think the front carseat would look a little odd on a bike! LOL, Nah, my spread isn't THAT big!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I want a bike SO bad but I just never seem to get around to getting one. One of these days I guess...

Have a great weekend!

Hi Shaila,
Love the bike! And the kids look like they are all having a great time!
Hey, I am stopping by to tell you that at this moment, I am working on getting you a partner for the stocking swap! Give me a few days and you will be getting a E mail from me with details!
Have a great weekend!
Robin~♥

Your kids are so cute! Nice bike - I'm with Mother Goose. Haven't ridden mine in years! lol.

Now I want to go to Tai Pan!

kitchenditcher said...

Love the bike, I've never heard of Tai Pan and then I've already heard about it twice just this week! I can't wait! I'm assuming it's going to be near Ontario Mills Mall? Let's meet and go to lunch! I AM SO SERIOUS ABOUT THIS SHAILA!!!

And the coolest family picture that I saw was the Clegg Family? Do you remember them? She has seven kids and they all wore jeans and a black leather looking motorcycle jacket. Sounds funky but it was darling.

Bren's Life said...

Are all your kids in Rexberg? Isn't that a long drive?
Yes I have a bike. My hubby got me one several years ago. I haven't riden in in over a year. It's too hard to ride a bike with 2 girls that have training wheels. I can walk just as fast!!

Scott and Kristine said...

I love jeans with fall colored shirts! Always looks so crisp!
