Hitched for Eternity!

My gorgeous niece Brittny married her best friend Brandon today!  They have known each other since they were tots and Brandon's mom has had them tagged to marry ever since!  They always were nice to each other and even went to prom as friends together, but it wasn't until he got home from his mission that things really started to blossom!  We are so happy for them!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Meis!

Three standard  OnStar buttons found on most GM Vehicles. These buttons are integrated into the rear view mirror.
Our new Suburban has the fancy little feature of ONSTAR.  Never thought we would use it - but we have 1 free year to try it out.  My friend Mandy was up last weekend and told me that they use it all the time, so I thought I would activate it and give it a whirl.  That afternoon I picked the kids up from school and I pushed the Onstar button and started having a conversation with the lady, got what I needed and hung up.  I looked in the rear view mirror and Rylee and Noah are just staring at me and Rylee says in the most shocked voice, "Mom, your talking to the CAR!"
I laughed so hard and remembered how much I love being a mom!

Bugle me this...

After conference on Sunday we headed up to Estes Park for a look-see at all the Elk.  We had heard that this time of year there are hundreds of them and they were right!  It was fun to see them, but even cooler to hear them!  The kids had a blast!  We decided we are going to go there more often.  Here are a few things we saw: An eagle, a snake, lots of Elk (uhhh duh), fish in the river and an elk that looked like rylee?

Oh Happy Day!!!!  Little missy here slept from 11:00 to 6:15 this morning!  Couldn't believe the clock - had to blink a few times to make sure it was real!
One happy mommy!
