Durdee Furn Update

Dear Dad,
I know that this is about as insignificant as possible in light of the events of the past two days, but I also know that you'd be really excited to hear about our recent sales.
The man did buy the tiger picture. It was right where you said it would be on the couch rack. It'll continue to amaze me what people buy!
Someone came today and bought the black leather couch set you bought and the king bed from the Salas's house. Quite a sales day....and we really weren't trying! I knew you'd be excited to hear we sold the couch set since you told me to make sure we sold it while you were gone.
The lady also got the tan couch where you sewed the arm today, just as you had scheduled.
Chad had to put more gas in the truck. It really does suck it down.
I love you and miss you so much already. We all do. Hopefully we can celebrate your life in a way that does it justice over the next few days. We'll try our best to take care of mom.

Cranky Pants

We took Parker to a city water/splash park earlier this summer when Clementine was in town. We thought Parker would love it, but he was being a crank pot this afternoon. Oh well...he looks pretty cute anyway (especially with his swim diaper sticking up above his shorts).

A trip down memory lane...

Last week Chad, Parker, and I packed things up and headed up to Salt Lake for Jen's (my good friend and roommate from BYU) wedding.

We did a few other things while we were there that took me on a stroll down memory lane. We stopped in Provo Canyon on the way up there and walked around the trails and saw Bridal Veil falls. It was good to let Parker run and splash around after being cooped up in the car seat. The weather there was absolutely beautiful!!

We also walked around some of BYU campus and checked out the good ol' bookstore. We got Parker the obligatory "Y" hat even if Chad would have preferred him to be wearing a UNM hat :) We also got to take a tour of the new Hinckley Building which is really beautiful. Campus has changed a lot in the seven years since I left! Chad made the comment as we walked around, "Do all of the people seem really young or is it just me?" How things change!!

The wedding at the Draper Temple was beautiful and they were very happy. It was fun to participate in the festivities.
