Our Style

Welcome. We are Mike and Kim Simmons. We have 2 adorable children that rule our home, and we're ok with that.

Wolf Creek and Jackson Fork Inn

The weekend after the 4th of July we ventured up North and a tad East over through Ogden Canyon to Pineview Reservoir. This was our Simmons Family Vacation! Half of us stayed at the Wolf Creek Worldmark condos and half of us stayed at this charming old barn known as the Jackson Fork Inn. Mike and I were part of the Jackson Fork Inn...since we found it! It's older but it has a sweet charm and the people were so warm and welcoming. They even have a sweet dog to greet you, Lady Blue. Wish we snapped a picture of her!

The whole Simmons gang made it up but I only got pictures of our little family. No worries, we did family pictures a week later that I will get around to posting some other day :-)

We enjoyed quality time with our family playing catch, chasing the kiddos, swimming, and rolling down grassy hills and one little flash hail storm! {What's a family vacay without a little storm, eh?}

Our stay was just for the weekend but we had a nice time. Pineview Reservoir is absolutely beautiful and I would love waking up to those views each morning. Some day we'll go back! Jer loves the water and so did we.

                                                                See what I mean?
                                      Our attempt at a family picture {the "good" one is in the last post}

                                             Such posers...I'm thankful he puts up with me

                                                                       The End.

Back from Break

Well that was a nice break, don't you think? I went one full year without blogging. Truth be told I can't say I really missed all that much, however I don't want to have regrets and I feel that this is my best way to journal my life. While life is a fairly open book via Facebook, I don't exactly keep a journal full of memories that I can later print off in a book form. I did that for the first 2 years. So while most of my pictures and daily/weekly thoughts might show up on Facebook, I will also start posting and back-posting, spectacular events worth having in a book one day. Like when I get my hair done. Joking. Or maybe not! I'm considering doing a Flash Back Friday type of post to help me do my back pedaling. Feel free to follow us again here and leave comments if you so feel the desire but I'm mostly doing this for journal purposes, in case I didn't make that point! :@)

So hold on tight all your blog stalkers....the Simmons are back...
