Nelson Memories

So if you saw the house that burned down in Sandy on the news last week... that was my Grandparents old house. Even though it's not their home anymore, they built that house and lived in it for many many many years. When I lived at home growing up, we and all the aunts and uncles and cousins would meet there every Sunday night and have homemade ice cream. There are so many memories I have in that house and it was so sad to see it burn down.

I'd just like to take a second to remeniss with all the Nelson side of my family of some of my memories.
- Homemade Icecream
- playing capture the flag, ghost in the graveyard, kick the can, basketball
- playing nertz, and murder in the dark
- Picking rassberries, apricots, and cherries
- Climbing on the roof of the barn
- Painting the barn
- The little sand box
- swinging from the clothesline poles
- massive domino trains
- watching The Simpsons in the basement
- Grandpa's old chess set
- the beer chair
- Aunt Linda's treats
- Uncle Reed's teasing
- passing around cookies
- not having to serve ice cream anymore
- Mormon bridge
- racing sticks down the gutter
- Dipping chocolates
- Grandpa saying, " My name is Quela...What's yours?" Ha Ha
- Fitting everyone in the bathroom
- Inviting Matt for the first time to face the wrath(I mean questioning) of Aunt Linda(I mean the fam)
- Thanksgiving dinner, the handprint table cloth, and the kids table.

So so many memories. Let me know what I forgot, or what your favorite memories were.

Hill Air

No, not as in Hilarious, but as in the Aerospace Museum. On saturday, we went to Hill Aerospace Museum. We've lived 15 minutes away from it for 3 years and this was our first visit. It's actually pretty cool. I never realized how much cool history and massive planes and choppers they have there. And it's totally free to visit! I recommend it to anyone that has never gone, Especially if your kids, or you I guess, like planes. We had a great time.
