Okay, my friend Kenzie wanted a picture of me when I was little to compare with London. Unfortunately I'm an idiot with the scanner, so this is what you get. Mandy and Me and my little sweetie. This is also a family pic we took in November. At least London is a beauty. Poor child got my nose...and cheeks...and eyebrows...etc. Mandy and I loved to play dress up

The Tag Snag

Okay, Monica tagged me and I NEVER did it, so here goes: What was I doing 10 Years ago? Ten years ago I was about 13 and I believe Zacc Call was my boyfriend. Most of the time i think we hung out at Julianne's house because there was nowhere to go. I was an athlete in track doing high jump (Too bad that didn't carry through to high school) and the 4 by 4oo meter relay. I also took piano, voice lessons, and ballet. 5 things on my to-do list today 1. Go to the gym 2. Doctor's appointment 3. Take London swimming 4. Plant that thing I've been avoiding 5. Mop the floors Snacks I enjoy: Anything with chocolate is good but, since that doesn't qualify as a snack....I'd have to say I'm a regular with the rice cakes. Gotta love 'em! Things I would do if I was suddenly a billionaire: Number one, I'd pay off my house and put a ton of money away for the kids and retirement. Then I'd have to say I'd buy a nice big SUV and a bigger house. What? I know I'm a little shallow!...okay, and I'd pay tithing of course! Oh, and a massive shopping spree. (sigh) I love clothes. Places I've lived: Farmington and Orem. Lame Jobs I've had: Babysitter, gardener, embroiderer, life guard, secretary, office manager, etc. Things people don't know about me: hmmm... I'm a red personality so if I hurt your feelings it was unintentional so get over it. Just kidding.... kind of. Oh and I guess I'm a bit of a gym rat. I think people mostly know everything else. Who I tag? Nobody because I can't think of anything on the spot. Maybe Monica for torture....

Summer's Here!!!

Wow, it has been busy at the Barnes' house! A couple of weeks ago, Tyler had practically all of his buddies from college and their families at our house. It was so packed that London hugged her mom's legs the whole time because she was overwhelmed with all of the people. I have to say that was really fun to see everyone. I think that same week our close friends got sealed in the temple! We love you guys! It was awesome. This last week, London and I have been swimming everyday! She loves the water and her little floatie. Fortunately, her skin tans!!!! We were worried that she'd have her daddy's skin...sorry Ty. We also have a new addition to the family, Ginger Mae Simmons. Mary and Dean had a healthy baby girl on June 7th making their family number up to five! Can I say ambitious? Sorry about her picture, I was standing too close. Well, we love you all and to my family, vacation is going to rock!
