a late additon

I finally got some pictures from Heather from our Yellowstone trip (which I already posted about over a month ago). We went to the Lewis and Clarke caverns. They were awesome! There are spots inside the caves where you have to sit on your bum and slide, and lots of steps and cool formations. Very impressive. If you are ever out that way I highly recommend going to see them. It's totally worth the drive.

This was probably one of the coolest things I have ever done. I think the history and stories that the tour guide told (even though our tour guides delivery sucked) really brought it to life. It was a lot of fun!

It needed to be done

I guess that Adam felt his stuffed dog "Ike" needed a trim.

He is concentrating a lot to make sure and get it just right.

2nd grader and a kindergartner...How will I survive?

The boys wanted to ride bikes to school on the first day. I think that it is so sureal that they are both going to school. They are excited and ready and that is what counts! Here we go!

Christmas HOPE

August 25, 2010

Dearest Family and Friends,

As most of you know, our mother was diagnosed with cancer in May of this year. We have had many offer their prayers, fasting, and help. For that we thank you.

We are proud of Mom and her continuous bravery and strength. After much thought, we have decided to donate a tree to the Festival of Trees. This not only will honor our mom, but the proceeds for our tree will go to Primary Children’s Medical Center to provide a better opportunity for patients there.

The name chosen for the tree is Christmas HOPE. We continue with HOPE that Mom will win her fight with cancer. We HOPE the money donated will help another in need. We HOPE you will contribute what you can to help us decorate the greatest Christmas tree to honor the greatest woman we know.

We have an event deadline of November 1st, 2010 so; please send all donations before then to:

Carina Both
2446 Jordan Meadows Lane
West Jordan, UT 84084

We are excited to support our mom and to help families at Primary Children’s Medical Center. If you want to know more about this charity and/or information about coming to see the tree, log onto

Thank you for your love and prayers,
Carina, Heather, Heidi, and Stephanie

Camping with the Johnson, Hepworth, Piggott, Horsley, Coyle, Stout Family

For our yearly family camping trip we went up Cottonwood Canyon and camped a few days at the Redman campground. We ate lots of food, even if it was at 9 at night.

We played kickball until Kent popped the kickball and it turned into fat bat tennis ball.

We hiked around Silver Lake, saw some ducks including a baby, and climbed some pretty impressive rocks.

It was a beautiful campground with a river/stream running through it. I believe everyone slept well with the stream in the background (except me...I think it sounds like a fuzzy TV channel and all night long I keep wondering why someone wouldn't change the channel!) Grandma brought the best camping craft ever. All the kids, sans the babies, whittled their own walking stick and Grandma brought leather, feathers and beads to decorate them. Even Kent got in on that action...he's a kid at heart. The kids really took their time to make them their own. They loved it. Even Adam tried really hard to make it all by himself. Many of us offered to help him and he shot us all down.

Thanks for the good times family. It was great!

p.s. I have lots of pictures so if anyone (who went camping with us) wants them let me know and I can get them to you.

Baseball ended

The boys just recently finished their baseball season 2010. Noah played machine pitch for the Giants, and Adam played T-ball for the White Sox. They both enjoyed it, and did very well. The league hosted a pot luck Bar-B-Q and awards ceremony for all the players. I think that baseball really  is Americas favorite past time. Take me out to the ball game!!

The Both Kids

So...little bit late, but thought it was worth posting just so we can remember that it happened, you know how it is. Last month for Carina and Andy's anniversary I kept the Both kids overnight. We had a good time, well I did and hope they did too. We went to Artic Circle and got some ice cream/root beer floats for a treat. The funniest part of the night was Seth. He just figured out what to do when you put a camera up and say smile. He thinks he is so grown up, and funny. I think he is so cute! Thanks for indulging me and my little bit of the way, it wont be the last time. I am not so prompt at posting sometimes.
