Brothers are the Best!

I always wanted to have an older brother. I think this is only because I had friends who had older brothers and they were over protective of their little sister and for some odd reason or another I always wanted that. Instead, I am lucky enough to have 3 of the best little brothers a girl could ask for! Then after I got married, I adopted 3 more brothers!

Colton- We are like two peas in a pod, I feel like I can talk to him about anything. It seems like just yesterday I was mad he didn't get in trouble for throwing a power ranger action figure at me.

Colin- I admit it, I did cry when my mom told me she was pregnant with him but, my life would not be the same without my little Colin! I am glad you are my little bro!

Bryson- My brotha from anotha motha! haha Remember when you spied on me and my friends and you ripped your chinese pajamas? Good times! Bryson is leaving to go on a mission to France next week, I know he will do great!

Braeden, Clayton, Spencer- You guys are pretty neat, I feel lucky to be a part of your family!!

P.S. Look at Cameron's short hair... oh how I miss it! haha Maybe one day we will be reunited!

So anytime I mention a fun but, sorta of different activity we should participate in, all I here is, "What? That must be a Springville thing?", "Just because they do that in Springville, it doesn't mean it's cool." blah blah blah. Well, I am pretty positive that ice blocking is not just a Springville thing, AND it is an activity that everyone can enjoy! Yesterday, Braeden, Alisha, Brittnie, Dan, Cameron, and I went to a park to eat tin foil dinners. This park happened to have a fairly good sized hill, so we (Alisha and I) thought it would be fun to participate in the sport of ice blocking. Though, this may sound pretty self explanatory, there is a technique that can make it much more enjoyable! haha Really, all you need are a couple of ice blocks, that can be purchased at most gas stations, and some towels. Fold up your towel, set it on the ice block, sit on your ice block, slide down the hill and have the time of your life!

Here are some photos!

Mine and Cameron's attempt at a train...

The end of our train...

Cameron going backwards and forwards!

Dan, being Dan... He also tried to go down the hill standing up... he may have a severely bruised tailbone now...

Alisha's perfect form and Braeden's not so perfect form.

Our wet/muddy butts! (Mom, how do I get grass stains out of my pants??)

If you haven't gone ice blocking I highly recommend it!
