Father's Day!

As Father's Day is coming up I think about how grateful I am for the fathers (and future fathers) I have in my life.
For starters- I couldn't have asked for a better dad growing up. He was always there to love me, encourage me, calm me down when I was having my "Drama Queen" moments. I will forever be a Daddy's girl and I am so grateful for the example my dad has set for me.

Another Dad I want to praise is my father-in-law, Rob. He is such an amazing man and I am so blessed to be apart of his family. Rob is a great fishing partner, a good friend, and he is always willing to share his Diet Pepsi stash with me. :)

A future Dad- (hopefully)- is my brother Kellen. Although Kellen isn't even considering fatherhood right now, I know he will be an amazing dad one day. He is such a wonderful person and his kids will be so lucky to have such a fun, interesting, and COOL dad.

Last but DEFIANTLY not least, is my amazing husband, Dan. I am so blessed to have Dan in my life, and I am so excited for him to be the father of our children. Our kids will have so much to learn from Dan, and I know he is going to whatever he is kind of dad that every child deserves. I love Dan so much and I look forward to the time we start a family together.

A Day in the Life....

Well- not much much has changed for Dan and I the past couple of months. We are trying not to go insane with the weather being so rotten. I usually rave about how much I love Rexburg, but today, June 11th, it SNOWED!! It was probably the most depressing day of my life. Dan is going crazy not being able to fish, but we are planning to take the four wheelers out this weekend if it starts to warm up.
Dan has been working really hard on his internet business. He has decided to go with a new web developer to give his existing website a face lift. You can go to to see the "soon to be updated" page. Dan has also been working on fixing up a house down in Idaho Falls. We had renters in the house, but we had to evict them and they left the place a total mess. Dan has done such a great job fixing it up. It has been so much fun going down to the house together and working on it.
What can I say- my husband is amazing. He works so hard at everything he does. I am so proud of him and all the work he has put into creating Recordergear and fixing up the house. I glad the weather will be nice enough this weekend to give him a much needed break.
As for me, I am just enjoying my new job a Melaleuca. I am the new Lobby Receptionist and I LOVE it! I have also been keeping busy with getting ready for Girl's Camp. I am the assistance Camp Director and I am enjoying it so much. I am really looking forward to camp, but there is still so much work to be done. Dan and I are also primary teachers, so I am lucky work with the 4 years old as well as the young women.
In more exciting news- I'm happy to announce my parents have officially left Georgia. They sold their house about a week ago and moved, for the time being, to Salt Lake City. Dan and I are really looking forward to spending time with them. (I'm even more excited to see my dog, Mookie!) Other than that things are pretty normal at the Robison household.
Until next time...

Elk Bend Hot Springs

Dan and I took a trip to Elk Bend Hot Springs one weekend. It was a boring 2 hour drive, but we finally got there. It was about a 30 minute . The hot springs were all different temperatures and they looked out over a beautiful mountain range.

Vegas Baby!

Around the beginning of April, our family decided to take a trip to Las Vegas- I was SO excited!! I was the only one in the family who hadn't been to Vegas. We stayed in a wonderful condo with plenty of room for everyone. The weather was beautiful- it was a nice escape from Rexburg's cold weather! I am now in love with Las Vegas. I don't know whether it was the buffets or the lights, but I was in awe the entire trip. We also took the four wheelers down and took them for a spin on the Nevada deserts. Here our some pictures of four wheeling.

The little girls found this hole in the rocks and immediately their imaginations went wild. They called the cave their "Earthly Home". Christina even joined in on the fun!
