What we love about Icon

The company Dave works for this summer, Icon, is wonderful! One of the things we love is all of the fun incentives. The last one was Diving for Dough. They threw over $200 in change into the pool. The boys had 10 seconds to dive down and grab as much as possible. So fun!



This may appear to be an ice scraper and a pooper scooper to the untrained eye. But to us, they represent hours of failed experiments trying to find the perfect tools to collect money on the bottom of the pool. We also tried a pool vac and some Magyver-inspired wire hanger and duct tape thing.






David looking like Kronk.



My love in his 6 dollar shorts we got in the Philippines...Justin in his 20 dollar shorts that he bought from the family auction. They used to belong to Grandpa. Quite frankly, they make me sick.




This was David's most successful dive...$7.25!

What year do you belong in?




You Belong in 1981



Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

Forever Family


We went home for an amazing family event. David's sister, Lashelle was sealed to her husband Jose. It was the most beautiful sealing I've been too. It was a really cool day. (Again, figuratively...not literally.)

Now that we are all sealed together, I can only hope they offer photography classes in heaven.

It was great to see our good friends Whitney and Kamaili as well. (Refer to older video post for some laughs at their expense.)

New Apostle Song

Check out this cute new song. I wrote it. Just kidding. video

You'd think they could find something better for Elder Ballard than selling used cars...

Race Day



Well, those of you who really know me probably think this is a stolen race number. But the truth is, ever since I married into the Merrell family I've really gotten in touch with my inner athlete. These are picture of Dave and I are just after the Highlands Ranch 4th of July 5K Race. For those of you as clueless as I once was, that is a little over three miles. Not too bad in low, flat Arizona. But in the high elevations running up hills for half an hour...it sucks. Let's just say my relationship with running is fragile and we're about to break up. Nevertheless, it really does feel good to know you accomplished something like this and I am proud of how I pushed myself.
