Trains, Trains, and more Trains!

Mitchell, who is now almost 5 years old, loves train. He eats, sleeps, and dreams of trains. We went to the Ogden City Train Station for their model train expo. Mitchell was elated! We walked our legs off around and around the see all the model trains and big live ones too. Nana Lewis enjoyed seeing the excitement in her Grandkids eyes and Mom enjoyed every exciting minute!

The Convertible Cruiser!

Convertible? I don't think it is so practical for law enforcement use. Thank goodness and God that he is alive! He is a lot achy but moving around just the same. This event will always be embedded in our minds. How quickly your life's perspective can change! Love and Kiss those around you because you never know when that might change. I truly love my husband and he is apart of my soul. And I really do thank God, multiple times a day, that he is still here on this earth.

Paul's BIG Ride!

Paul experienced a life changing event on Feb 21, 2008. He left home giving his wife a brief kiss and saying I'll see you later tonight, after he was working an extra DEA Warrant shift. Little did he know he was going to see Heather a lot sooner and under not so great circumstances. Paul was traveling East bound on I-80 in Parley's Canyon when he hit a downed moose. His vehicle was launched up, Dukes of Hazard's Style, came down and proceeded to roll 4 times until it came to a rest on the driver's side over a snow bank. He was rescued by too many to count. Every listening ear on the radio responded in haste. THANK YOU!!! They turned his squad car into a convertable to get him out. God was watching out and blessing our family. Divine intervention and a seat belt saved his life. Paul is physically shaken, but not broken. The whole family, especially Paul and Heather are emotionally recovering.

This is supposed to make me feel a WHOLE lot better about being the SUPER MOM that I'm not! Will it really make me one? I am willing to give it a try! I love my 3 kids the most when they are sleeping angels and the day is over! Only dreaming of the mystery day that lies ahead. In the end I just want to be HAPPY! The awards don't have be on make believe marble or premolded plastic. I just want to survive each day and live each moment to the fullest for years to come!
