My Family Reunion and Harry Potter!!

Neither has to do with the other but I thought I would just mention the fact that I really loved the new Harry Potter movie. We saw it with KSL on the afternoon before it came out. I thought it was way funny and had some action and of course sadness. My niece Sierra came with us and of course we both cried at the end. What more can I say we are both cry babies.

Now for the reunion. This past weekend was our biannual Smithen Family Reunion. We had it at this place called the Rockin R Ranch in Antimony Utah. It was great fun. My sis Wendy was in charge and did a stellar job at organzing it. There was horse back riding, tubing, hiking, four wheeling, archery, and swimming. But the best part was the family rodeo. Barry did the barrel racing and if it hadn't been for his shoulder surgery, he would have done the calf riding. I just did the relay race and had to throw cow poop! Gross. Here are some pictures from the enjoyable event.

This is my favorite picture of my nephew Padan riding the calf!!
Yee Haw!

So I just signed up for this facebook thing and I don't get it. Is it possible that I am that dumb? Ok so don't answer that question. But if someone could explain it's usefulness to me that would be great. In advance, Thanks for the help.

Baby Stuff

Great news for all of you gals that just had a baby!! My sister Wendy and sis-in-law Wanda are starting this great business to buy baby gear. As of right now they are calling it Mom's on the Go. You must check out their blog themomonthego.blogspot.com
They have pictures posted of a few of their items. There are many more in the works. They have this one awesome idea that they are going to patent that you will love if you have park near by or a swing set in your own back yard. I can't tell you what it is yet but stay tuned to be the first to purchase this amazing product.
They will be selling nursing covers, baby slings, car seat cabanas, burp clothes, tutu's, nap mats, bags for girls and boys that teach them zipping, buttoning, tying, etc. All of their products are so much cheaper than buying them at ritzy baby stores. I have to say their pricing is very competitive and fair. Keep an eye on their blog for new products to be posted. If you want to buy anything, let them know. It's truly great stuff!!
