Check out the date on this army ration!!! That was during World War II. Unopened--cool, huh?
I wonder why they stopped making Jello like this...check out the flavor on this baby. If your mouth isn't watering yet, check out the suggestions for cooking on the package:
Jenny's dad, mom and uncle have been here working hard cleaning out the infamous food storage room. That room is not only full of decomposing paper towels and fruit bottled in the 60s, but it is full of obedience. Jenny and I have only recently started our own food storage because of great examples like Grandpa and Grandma Sorensen who heeded the continued call of a prophet for decades. It is gross--but it is inspiring!
What I think is one of the greatest finds yet...
I went into the garage to find something and saw what I thought was a big dusty trunk, then I wiped it off a bit and found this...(turn off the music on my blog, because the music in this clip is original!)

Sometimes I log on our blog from work just to see the boys...I love them!

The Pilot or the Odyssey. Both have their advantages and disadvantages and we just need to go test drive them. In the process, other cars might jump into the mix. We shall see. The only problem is any car we drive will not be the Armada, and I hope we can "settle" after having been spoiled :)
We turned Chunky around while driving the Armada because we had Adam's seat and he really like watching the DVD. He had fun.
Jack LOVED it too. Here he is playing with Mom's IPod. Now every time we see an Armada he yells, There is Suz's Jeep!! He actually had withdrawals from the Jeep though. Every time we saw Mom and Dad with it, he would want to ride in Lindsey's Jeep. Fun times!

Hi guys! It's the Cheat and Josh! We are so sorry we haven't been blogging! Well, our trip to Idaho was fun and our apartment looks great. Thanks for all the help in moving even though I hate David and never call him to help us. Good thing he came to help paint and spilled the paint on the floor. Maybe that's why I don't call him. Well, got to go. Come visit us at our new pad!
We got up early on the 3rd to see the balloons from our back porch. By the time we were up, they were on their way down, and thought we would wake up the boys on the 4th to see them, but you couldn't see them as well again, so we decided to wait until next year to drive the boys over to see them up close. I was helping one of the youth in the ward with his Eagle project (which was security for the parade) so I got to see the whole parade without dealing with getting there early or sleeping overnight or standing behind the throngs of people. It was actually a really nice way to see the parade. When I got there, they put me in charge of staging all the floats. This meant I had to line them all up so they would be in the right order in the parade. I had a fancy shirt and one of the walkie talkies. It was cool. Once they were all getting into the parade I just walked the route a couple of times as security. I saw some of my students and got hit by a million of those popper things. It was fun!
In the afternoon we went up to the canyon to hang out with my brothers and sisters [except one who is in Texas :( ] and my parents who were in town and my brother-in-law's family at Vivian Park up Provo Canyon. Brian's (my brother-in-law) Dad had some rafts we could float down the river with. Me and my Dad and Mark and April and Kale all went down the river together. My Dad almost fell in, which was pretty funny. The water was FREEZING! Brian got in and swam in it which is nuts! It was fun. I had never floated on the Provo River before but hear people talking about it all the time.
And the grande finale...We need to prune our apple trees a little for next year's firework show. This year was awesome, but there were a couple of branches in the way of the little ones that shoot up right at the top of the stadium. We got to hear the concerts from our backyard which was fun. and the plane flyovers are always cool I think. They shook our house when they came. Remember last year when Jackson hit the deck when they flew over? Just one burnt little finger and a lot of fun! (Jackson learned that the sparklers are hot--sometimes I forget that obvious things are not obvious to a two year old until you teach them)
One final shoutout--are you tired of this blog yet?? No picture, but we ran down the canyon (on the actual race course) with Mom on Saturday. I hadn't run in a while, so it jump started me back into gear! Hoody hoo! 4-5 more weeks.
We really had a fun time and want to go camping some more! If you are in, let us know!!
