I’m in a huge hurry right now. John came home from work last night stressed and exhausted and told me he took tomorrow and all next week off from work. So we’re now running around getting ready to head to Idaho for a fun weekend of camping!
I did want to post quickly before I left, though, since I haven’t yet this week. Wow, what a busy week! I spent the majority of the last several days doing literally hours of cell phone research. My parents and some of my sisters and I have been in this 5-person family plan with Sprint for the last two years, and we were looking to upgrade our phones. My phone broke last week and was hanging by a hinge. :) Finally the hard work paid off and we found the perfect guy to go with—the Sprint store in the Toys R Us parking lot in West Valley. Brett was so awesome. He gave us a great deal on phones, discounts, and fees and made us very happy.
My dad, my sister Kaari, and I all ended up getting the Samsung Exclaim phone. It’s GREAT! We love it. It’s unique because it has two slide-outs—a keyboard and a number pad. I got the pink one.

My mom got the LG Rumor 2, which has a keyboard slide-out, and my sister Kaatia got the brand-new Samsung Reclaim, which is an eco-friendly phone made from corn, if you can believe it.

Yesterday, to celebrate and enjoy some much-needed fun and relaxation, the kids and I went with my sister Kaari and her boys to Sugarhouse Park. We had lots of fun playing on the playgrounds, throwing rocks in the stream, feeding the ducks/geese, and climbing trees. I’ll post more cute pictures next week but here’s a taste (and wow, can you even believe the camera quality on my new phone?!?!?!?!).
Click here for the pictures in bigger size, and click again on each picture when you get there. (For all you lovely scrapbooking grandmas and aunts, you can right-click on the pictures in their big size and save them to your computer if you want to scrap them or anything, or just have them on your computer.)
And finally: for our Idaho camping trip, we’ll be in the Burley area. City of Rocks campground is mostly booked up with reservations already so if we don’t get a spot there, we’re going some other place nearby that John knows about that has tons of campgrounds along the road. If you are my friend on Facebook I’ll send pictures from my phone throughout the weekend (if I can get a signal up there).
Have a great holiday weekend!
