{happy birthday to me!}

for my birthday kasey and i decided to go a little crazy... and bought this!
9 rooms, custom kitchen, ponds, waterfalls, tree lined gravel drive and a huge entertainment room in the basement... right on the middle provo in midway, kasey couldn't pass it up with all the fly fishing, wild life and amazing 360 view... and neither could i!
the commute sucks but it's totally worth it i think! plus we have come to find out that the people up there are so friendly and i just love the little shops that are around.




















gotcha! april fools... more like we bought it for two nights! it was so nice to get out of the valley though and relax... it's the johnson mill bed and breakfast in midway and it was amazing. the rooms all had massive fire places and nice, i mean nice bathrooms! and the breakfast, served promptly at 9 am, were a couple of the best breakfasts that i have ever had!
we woke up and went fly fishing out on the middle provo... yeah, it was cold, and the fish just didn't like us, they weren't biting. i didn't mind though, i just like the casting part anywho, i feel like brad pitt 'on a river runs through it'. yeah, thats me. along the way we found this swing out in a field... i tried to get kasey to do it but some how he got out of it.

{notice the white, white, white torso... pathetic!}
after a long walk up and down the river we decided to head back, kasey wanted to fish the ponds. kasey was out there for about an hour or so and caught over 30 fish. talk about dumb fish! right after a cast he had a bite... and thats how it was the whole time! that made his day...

now the question from kasey about a week or so ago was...
'honey, what do you want to do for your birthday?' 'i want some place warm... i just want to hang out in my suit and play some golf.' and that was the plan, til our friends that were going with us couldn't cause of a family emergency. so kasey decided to go cold and get out the fly rods! it was nice and chilly when we got there on friday and when we woke up on sunday we had just over a foot of snow on the ground... here are the before and after photos...

oh, and i can't forget the most ono place in the valley... if you are ever going through heber, there its called snake river grill. it's a quite little ritzy place where when you walk in there is usually a wine bottle on almost every table... don't worry though, its very reasonably priced. they have the best fillet mignon and halibut... mmm.

Happy Birthday!! I too would have wanted something a little warmer for my birthday. It looks pretty for sure that we are going to be moving to Logan this summer for school and I am terrified of the snow that we are going to be experiencing and how long the cold is actually going to last. Needless to say after seven years of living in Southern Arizona, I am not prepared clothing wise or blood wise, we shall see how it goes.

Happy Birthday! It looks like you two had a lot of fun. I am not showing this post to Mike! Just kidding, he already has a fishing trip planned. He just got his first fly fishing pole and is itching to try it out.

Happy Birthday Molly, Sounds like you had a great time. Warm is always what I want anytime I think of vacation but it looks like if you have to be cold that place is at least nice cold. Good for you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOLZ! Sad to say that I did not even know that it was you b-day...but it sounds like you had an emjoyable time in Heber, even though it snowed. And just think, you're only a few years from being "over the hill"
;-) nah.

Hope you are having a great day!

Happy late birthday Molly! Looks like you got a bit spoiled. You're a cowboy these days girl! So did you burn your butts while you fell asleep in the grass or what??
We're coming next week. Bets gave me your number, so when do we get to see you???

What a great getaway. I think that my last birthday there was dinner. Yeah, and maybe even a song about getting older or something. Nothing too memorable like a fun trip like that. There's always next year, right. Happy Birthday!

No. . .I am serious. As soon as our house sells. Any suggestions as to where we should start house shopping?
