Homemade Root Beer

It was a very special weekend... so much that we got to have homemade root beer TWICE!! I haven't had the stuff since I was little, and for some odd reason it reminds me of the ward parties with the Brigham City 4th ward!

The first event was a birthday party/camping trip with my family for my dad's 60th birthday!! Here he is after a full day frying on the beach of Bear Lake on Friday, sleeping in a tent with a group of 26 Friday night (not all of which spent the night, but it was a big group none the less), and then back to the beach on Saturday...
He was just a little tuckered out from all the fun.

'Munga' was too... But who could blame them after all this fun!!

We all had a lot of fun! Saturday after Bear Lake, all the adults got to go to dinner at Cafe Sabor and then to the temple. Always fun to do with family.

The second event of the weekend we weren't totally prepared for... so we ended up making the root beer just before we left for the birthday dinner for Nate's mom, Joy. Here we are in the car enjoying the root beer fumes!
Grandma Joy is so nice to let Hallie help open her presents...

We're both so blessed to have such great parents and families. We really had a great weekend, and I think we had enough sugar to last us at least through another month!

Saturday Projects

The headlights on our Civic have gotten so cloudy (it been driving Nate crazy). So, today he went and bought a refurbishing kit and went for it. Here's the before...

And after!!
We're both really happy with the results (especially Nate)! :) can see I was in the process of cleaning out the garage while he did it (notice all the junk along the side of the garage).
