Don't Mine If I Do!

 We decided to take a nice Sunday drive and while we were driving, Andy asked me if I had ever been to the Kennecott Copper Mine? I was like, "NO LETS GO!" So off we went. It was so cool. A sight to behold actually. My great grandfather worked in the copper mines and he passed away in the mine when he was about 50 years old, so I never had the chance to meet him. I am so happy I finally got to see this amazing place.

 This tire is HUGE! You really get an idea of how big these trucks are.
 Ella and Rowan are some tough kiddo's. LOL

 I thought this was just awesome! The 2002 Olympic medals were made from the Gold, Silver and Bronze donated from the mine.

A Room To Be Inspired By.

 I have always wanted a craft room. Growing up my mom was always making and creating things. She is a very talented artist and was such an inspiring mom. She was always helping us with our school presentations, valentine boxes and anything and everything that was a visual project. It always turned out amazing. I even remember teachers being in awe. My mom always taught us that we could be individuals and no matter what you create or aspire to be it was beautiful because well, it was YOU!
 I wanted my children to have a space where they could create and exercise their imagination. So here it is!
