Inspiring Preparedness Seminar

I went to a very good seminar last night about being prepared for a Pandemic. I just wanna share some of the things I learned there. First of all here is a link from BYU Idaho for a 17 minute video clip on the Flu Pandemic. http://www.byui.edu/safety/Pandemic_Web_Page.htm
After you access this page scroll down to the Video Portion and click on it.

Some of the things I learned from the presentation that I want to share are:

Some Suggested Pandemic Supplies:(this seems like a lot but it's better to be overprepared than underprepared!

Some Suggested Pandemic Supplies
• 1 gallon of liquid bleach per person of the household (yes that is gallons) - to sanitize
• 4 boxes of latex gloves (different sizes for every member of the household)

• antibacterial soap- for meticulous hand washing
• styrofoam "Take Out" containers - to give to people that come to your door looking for food

It's been forever!!

Wow, everyone hope you haven't given up on me blogging!! Things have been more than crazy the past few months! We moved to Providence, UT for Jonah to go to school. It's been an adjustment but overall good. First of all just let me tell you jobs aren't fun to find in a college town, but we found some that will work for us for the time being!! Jonah started out in Machining program and didn't like it now he's in the Meat Cutting, and Loves IT. I'm glad he found soemthing he likes. Me and Jeremiah stay home most of the time. We try to go to our pool and go for walks when it's not too hot outside! I work at TJ Maxx part time and that's pretty good. I've met some cool people there. And our other news is we just found out were going to have another BABY about mid March 2010. I am very excited but am NOT enjoying the being sick!! Well that is our life in a nutshell. We love our families and are grateful for all the blessings we have!!!

Our New Place

Just wanted to update everyone on our lives. We have been in Providence, UT for just over a week now. It's been crazy adjusting to a new place and trying to get situated. Jonah started school today. Jeremiah and I like to go outside, or to the park, or go shopping. We like our apartment. It's pretty roomy and we can't wait for the pool to open up. I'll post some more pictures soon!! Ta ta!

Hawaii Was Awesome!!

Hawaii was as wonderful as I imagined. We stayed in Laie, near the temple and Polynesian Cultural Center. We traveled around most of teh island. We went to the North Shore Beach, visited the Dole Plantation, saw the show at the Polynesian Cultural Center. We also visited Waikiki Beach, hiked to Diamond Head Crater, went to Hawaii Adventures Water Park, the Hawaii Aquarium, and still had plenty of time to visit the beach, even though it was cloudy a lot of the time. We also took a fun boat ride where we saw tropical fish and turtle and the reef. That was alot of fun. Overall Hawaii was wonderful and will be a very memorable experience for us!!!
