North Salt Lake

Well, here it is the 12th of June (Happy B-day, Cathy!) and nothing going on this whole week. Tonight is a potluck dinner here at the Pony Express. I'm making a pan of layered brownies. It has chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coconut and pecans. Sounds yummy, huh? I made sure to take the calories out before I baked it though :) Oh yeah, and to balance it out I'm also making a broccoli casserole with pasta.

It's been so cold here in Utah. Yesterday's temps barely made it to 60 degrees. Today is supposed to be mid 60's and gradually warming up by early next week to 90. WOOHOO!! Now, I know all my Florida friends are saying, UUGGGGHHHH, 90 degrees??? Well, remember what people say about, "it's a dry heat?" It's true! 90 degrees here is not at all like 90 degrees in that Florida humidity.

We paid for another month here because there really is nothing else in the area that is as nice and as clean as this one so we'll be here until July 14th. We hope to be really busy with the grandkids for the next month. This Sunday we're going over to Dave & Betty's for another barbecue. We sure like going over there. I really miss the family get togethers we used to have when we and all the kids lived in Washington. Dave & Betty are family too because they're Todd's parents. We've never got to spend a lot of time with them and it's been really nice getting to know them better while we've been here in Utah.

We're already planning our trek to Salt Creek County Park in Pt Angeles for our workamping job. We don't have to be there until the 1st of Sept so we get to play for a month and a half after we leave here. We're looking at the Oregon State Parks and have read some reviews (thanks Jo, for that site). Everybody on the reviews rave about the Oregon parks. I'm so excited to be able to be going back to the woods. The main activity that we want to do is crabbing. We both LOVE crab so it'll be exciting to catch our own. The only bad thing is that it's summer season so it might be hard to get into a state park. We may end up in a RV park again. I sure hope not. We'll keep looking.

Working hard to find a new spot

My contribution to the potluck

As usual, LOTS and LOTS of food
