*Hi Grandpa*

While Mom was in town to close on the house we wanted to stop by and say hello to my Dad. My kids LOVE visiting his grave and making sure it looks pretty:) That is one thing I really miss about not being right down the street from the Cemetery, EVERY TIME we would pass my kids would all say "Hi, Grandpa"
We sure do miss him SO much! The other day Hunter was asking questions about him and he asked me about the day he died and I told him that it was the worst day of my life and he said to me "I bet it was the worst day of his life too" It kind of caught me off guard, I said "yeah, I bet it was!" I'm so happy to know that he is free from the craziness of this life and is at peace now with his family that's on the other side, it will be quite a party when we get to see each other again:D (kind of can't wait, but I will;)

*Payson Temple*

We LOVE living in Payson...we have a gorgeous view of the Temple and my kids ask me several times a week to drive by it, so we do:D As we pass the kids sing "I love to see the Temple" I love how excited they are to see it progress...we are SO excited!:D

*Utah County Fair*

We had SO MUCH FUN at the Fair this year. It wasn't busy at all so there were no lines and we could just kind of wander around. The kids got to choose 3 rides and we had a blast with Grandma there, it's ALWAYS fun when Grandma's there:D

*Fire season was going on full blast which is really sad but makes for some awesome sunsets:D

We had a BLAST at the Rodeo this year (we sure missed our Hunter though!). The Wild Child was there and he did a great job and we saw a lot of great runs!:D Definitely something we look forward to every year!:D (Every time we pass the Fairgrounds Jagger yells "MOM! IT'S THE RADIO!!!!:)

Did I mention that it was the most beautiful night?!!!! We had a GORGEOUS view:D

*Good Bye*

SO bittersweet....This is the home I was blessed enough to grow up in and then later blessed to have my own children live.  My Daddy built this house and it was the gathering place for our family and lots of our friends for the last 25+ years.  We knew that it was a chapter in the Nielsen book that needed to come to a close but that doesn't make it easy. I am SO grateful for all of the memories I have in this home and I know it will never be the same. I miss my Dad so much, every single day, and this is just another piece of him we had to let go of and that is hard, but I know he is watching over us daily. I am so grateful to KNOW this:)
So goodbye to my childhood home, thank you for all of the memories:D

(I know it's picture overload but I want to remember EVERYTHING about this house:)
