Hoola Dogs

Just thought I would post some pics of our cute dogs. Roy's mom bought them some summer hoola outfits to wear at the family BBQ.
Molly had a skirt, but she was a little too chubby to wear it. Remember she is on a diet!!

Stinkin' Deer

Early Sunday morning Roy was on his way to work in Park City when a deer jumped out in front of him. He hit his breaks, but hit some gravel and ended up missing the deer but slammed into a guard rail.

We are VERY happy Roy is okay. Cars can be fixed or replaced but good husbands can't. We are also thankful for guard rails. Even though this is the thing that did the most damage to his car, it also saved his life. Just beyond this guard rail was a pretty steep slope with cement at the bottom. He is sad that is new ride that we have only had for 3 weeks is smunched. It is already at the auto body shop and should be back to normal in a week or so.

This is the guard rail he hit

The tunnel the deer are supposed to use to cross the road... Hmm I don't think they understand, but also where Roy could have landed.

Our brother in law was nice enough to come tow it back down to Orem for us. Thanks Scott and Aubri!!!

So I am a little slow posting things because I don't have my own computer with the Internet, so getting around to putting my pictures on my parents computer takes a little while longer for some reason.

Anyway two weeks ago today we bought our new car. We sold the Explorer about 3 weeks ago because we needed a more reliable car that would also get better gas mileage driving back and forth from Vegas. I wanted to take our time finding the RIGHT one. I didn't want to pay for something I was not completely satisfied with. So I decided if we only had one car for the summer it would be okay since I have NOTHING to do. Well Roy felt bad that for like 3 whole days I couldn't go anywhere.

Thursday night Roy found one online here in Orem. It was way out of our price range but we decided to go look at it anyway. At 9:30 at night we went to go look at it hoping they would be closed and we wouldn't have to deal with any lot lizards. We were wrong they were still there. Before we knew it we were talking to a sales man and he let us take it for a spin. It was the right color, the interior was exactly what I wanted and it had decent miles on it for the year. I immediately said "uh oh"as Roy went cruising down the road. If any of you know me, that is not a good thing for me or Roy to say, especially if we
say it at the same time. It usually results in us buying something we LOVE!!! We took it back to the dealer and told them it was just too expensive.

Friday was Roy's day off so we got up early and headed to Salt Lake to look at some others that were closer to the price I was willing to spend. None of them compared. Well long story short we talked the other one down to a price I was kind of okay with. It was exactly what we both wanted so we pulled the trigger.

Now we have two cars that hopefully won't give us any problems driving back and forth, plus we will save a ton in gas... I hope.
