Some Sun Oven Cooking

We have been cooking in our sun oven quite a bit. It has been fun to experiment and try different things. We have done a turkey two different times and it turns out just wonderful! I made a really good Mexican dish in the sun oven for Sunday dinner. I put in rice, black beans, corn, chicken broth, frozen chicken tenders, and then topped it off with some salsa. Cook for about three hours. Mix well, and serve with sour cream an guacamole. You can even roll it into a burrito if you want. It was delicious!

Fun with the little people

Saturday morning, we went to Cooper's baseball game. It was a beautiful day. Julie has a special place in her heart for Luka. Here they are:
Becca and Ava are cheering Cooper on. The mighty Cooper at bat, with his coach (Dad) standing close by. Coop, you'll never hit the ball with your eyes closed. That ball is so close to you it was a little scary. Looks like it's just sitting on your shoulder... He did get a hit and now he's sliding into home! I took Ava and Savannah over to a lilac bush and showed them how pretty the blooms are and how wonderful they smell! Last but not least, Mr. Cannon has a ready smile for everybody, too! And his beautiful mama. We had a great time at Coop's game. Everybody in the family is so supportive and attends the soccer and baseball games. I was so happy that I got to see Cooper play ball. He is an amazing little athlete. His body is strong! and he is so cute!

A goal is reached

Hooray! After a hard decision and much determination, Julie went back to school, and she graduated from the University of Utah on May 7th. Becca and I flew out the night before so we could attend the ceremony and help Julie celebrate. Ryan and Katie helped a lot and were big supporters while Julie was in school. My three beautiful girls. I love them so much! I was so lucky to be with the for Mother's day this year. Sharon and Brad are very special friends to Julie and Ava. Thanks for all your support for my two girls! Ava is very proud of her mama. Brad took Ava for a nice long walk while were waiting to be seated for our celebration dinner. She came back with a special graduation present for her mom. While we were waiting to eat, we finally got a place to sit down. It was pretty good for a while, and then this HUGE woman sat down next to me. I was quite terrified when she came at me with her behind and I just knew that she was not going to fit in the spot next to me. She sat anyway and pretty much squished me. I finally wiggled my way out from under her. Becca was laughing her head off . . . she said when I got up that the lady's butt actually moved over and took my whole spot, too! It gave us a pretty good laugh.
