Dirty Dash

Saturday we took our kids to participate in an event called, The Dirty Dash- an obstacle course through the mud!  Erica complained a bit.  I had to bribe her with the promise of pizza when it was over, and then she was great!
Plus!!  We found ourselves on the evening news!

Before the race however, we decided to drive over to Jordanelle Resevoir. they were having a Scheels event where you can try their hands free kayaks and paddle boards.  We had almost as much fun there as we did at Dirty Dash.

Roskelley's Contribution for Shirt

We're excited about our matching "reunion" shirts!!  I had several things up for discussion in the comments in case you haven't started on this yet.

#1)The Kids could come up with a design, and we (really Trevor) can find clip art to match the "design". That is how we got Sea Werle's.  Erica, drew it, and trevor made it with clip art.

#2) We come up with the concept and let the kids draw the image: So, if you like the fish- we can have a kid draw the picture for the fish, etc. rather than use clipart. But it gives the kids a direction to go with their art.

#3) If you have your own shirts already designed, you can all send me your jpg.s of ideas, and I'll put them on this page and create a way to vote via google docs.

#4)Here are some other ideas we were brainstorming. (your kids can use them to make their art if they like)
  • Werle-nado (a tornado with all our names inside.)
  • Swirled Ice cream cone with all our last names swirled into the ice cream
  • Werled Cup

Post your comments below!  My idea was the squirrel, and my entire family and Sarah's family hate it.  Wa wa... it's cute though, right??

Arches and Halloween

We spent Thursday in Arche’s National Park! We had a fabulous tour of The Fiery Furnace, guided by a park ranger.  We also did our own hike up to Delicate Arch.

Wrapping up our week with Fumiko and Anna

I don’t even know if I can remember everything we did! It was such a whirlwind of a week!  But it needs to be recorded so next time we have Japanese students with us, we’ll have ideas of things we can do with them!

We started Monday picking them up from the airport, and then heading over to the Mitchell’s for a BBQ! We followed dinner with a traditional game of soccer, parents against children.  The kids always give us a run for our money, and the dad’s don’t cut them any breaks.

Tuesday we met up with Cody and Heather’s family at Thanksgiving Point for $2 Tuesday’s.   We visited the Gardens, which I love!  Then a little shopping and the Farm.


Tuesday night we went to Karaoke night at Applebee’s!  Nate was super brave and got up to sing My Girl.  Fumiko and Anna sang a duet, A Whole New world.


Wednesday we headed up for a day in Salt Lake.  We stopped at the Tracy Aviary and caught a bird show.  Then we went to East High, to see the infamous spot where High School Musical was filmed.  Ironically, three van’s full of Japanese high school tourists also pulled up at the same time to catch a glimpse of the school as well.

Then a tour of temple Square, where they had a Japanese sister explain things to them.


Wednesday night we headed into Alpine for their Alpine’s got Talent competition. It was outdoors under a big tent! And boy does Alpine have Talent!!! WOW!


Thursday we hiked to the Timp caves for a tour.  This has defnitely become a summer tradition for us.  I think we have gone every summer, for at least 4 or 5 times.


Thursday night we went to the Capitol in Salt Lake for a free outdoor movie, New Moon!


Friday we went to Park City. First we hit the Olympic Park and watched the athletes practicing their ariels into a pool and walked through the museum.  We spent several hours at the Park City outlets, and then headed into Coalville for their Rodeo.

Saturday we went to Alpine’s Parade.

Saturday night we went to a wedding for one of my former Young Women (who I had when she was a BEEHIVE!).  Then we went to Gardener Village where they were having a “Luau” night.


Sunday- A DAY OF REST!! FINALLY!  Not really cause I went to 6 hours of church, but Wade took the kids to ride 4 wheelers at his mom’s.

Monday- Cowabunga Bay

Monday night- The girls got to attend an Owlz game with the Single’s ward.  Thanks to Morgan (a neighbor) who took them.

Tuesday- Shopping at the Gateway.  Actually, while the girls shopped, the kids and I visited The Hansen Planetarium, the splash pad, and The children’s museum (it happened to be free on Tuesday!)  It was a great day, but the boys were sick of being at the mall… although we never actually shopped.

And that is all!  What a week, huh?   I wanted to add the email I sent to Anna with ideas of things they could do while here, so when we have future guests, we can refer to this post and have something to do with them.
