Recently I took a ride on the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad with my sister and nephew.
This was a special train, part of their Mountain Rails Live concert series. That means we had a fun and beautiful train ride up to the top of the mountain and stopped at Fir, Colorado.
Here we stopped got off and were able to eat lunch and attend a concert.
The concert we saw was Shenandoah, a country group we have enjoyed for a long time. (The band rides on the train with you.)
It was a really good concert and the weather outside was beautiful. We had a great time and also got to see some nice scenery on the trip up and back.
If you have a chance to take a ride like this I highly recommend doing it.

Tonight is the Las Vegas Finals of American Ninja Warrior. Have you seen this show? If you haven’t you should. It is so awesome to see the ninjas (both men and women) compete on super hard obstacle courses. These are some strong people! It would be so cool to be able to do that, but it would take me a billion years to build up to it.
My whole family like watching American Ninja Warrior every summer. And, luckily since it is hard to wait until next summer to watch again, they are filming the second season of Team Ninja Warrior!
This is different because it its two teams racing each other on the course. Both shows are fun and exciting to watch.

One of my new favorite shows. Is Studio C on the BYU channel. This is a fun sketch comedy show and the best part is that it is good clean humor. There are so many sketches that I love watching over and over that I will share with you, but today, since it is still Olympic time and so many countries are together, I will start with this one.
Oh yeah, they have a really fun theme song too.

It is time for the SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES 2016!! Have you been watching? I have mostly been able to watch swimming and there have been some very close moments. Those swimmers sure can go fast. I also watched a little bit of the diving. I don’t know how they just jump from so high up, let alone adding in all the twists and flips. I guess that is why at am here watching and not winning any medals.🙂
Two students from the college I work at are also competing this year in the track and field events for the country of Surinam. I’ve never met them but it is really cool to think that there are people from this little college in Rio at the Olympics.
There is still a week to go so I know I will be watching, will you?

Today we celebrate Colorado becoming the 38th state! Colorado was admitted to the union August 1, 1876 and is the best state ever!

Every year at the end of July our valley hosts the Ski Hi Stampede. This is a big rodeo with a carnival and a concert.
My sister and I decided that this years concert was going to be a good one and we should go.
It was a great concert and we had a lot of fun.

We are vegetarian and love to eat grilled veggies in the summer. Today we made kabobs with carrots, potatoes, pineapple, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and onions.
We also had some zucchini and yellow squash.
And, of course, we had to have some sweet corn.
We also had some portobello mushroom slices but I had them on one of the aluminum trays that I cooked the the other vegetables on, and a big gust of wind came up and blew it across the yard. I hope the bunnies and chipmunks like grilled mushrooms.😦
So although that made me sad, I was quickly cheered up by the homemade ice cream my sister mixed up.
It was a delicious and fun summer meal. I can’t wait until we do it again.

You may have already heard that this year (today in to be exact) is the 30th anniversary of the movie Pretty in Pink.
This is one of my favorite movies. But, I have always felt it ended wrong and Andi should have choose Duckie.
In honor of the anniversary, they re-released it to theaters for 2 days, so my sister and I headed out to see it on Valentine’s day.
It was different to see it on the big screen and we had lots of fun and found out a few new things about the movie. The movie is being released digitally through iTunes with an hour of bonus footage, so I will probably be getting it to see the extras. Will you?

As pretty much everybody knows by now the Super Bowl was on Sunday. This was a big deal around our house, especially for my brothers that are probably the biggest Bronco fans ever.
I tried to set them up a little party, although it wasn’t much. And then, I left them alone. I seem to bring bad luck to the team and it is decided that the best way for me to support the team is to not support the team and not watch. That was ok because The Harvey Girls was on TCM and I enjoyed that with my mom and grandma.
Well, I guess this strategy worked out well because the DENVER BRONCOS WON!!!! Colorado is very excited about our Super Bowl 50 Champions!!
Congratulations Denver Broncos!!
