South America/Antarctic Cruise w/ Iguazu Falls

I am starting with the last tour ,and Cruise I have taken I travel most of the time with Marjorie Sargent. We left Salt Lake airport January 8, 2010 to LA,CA. Leaving there for Santiago, Chile, just a stop on to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We arrived early afternoon. We sprnt the next two days there to to see the sights. The ones that stand out in my mine are the stone statue of Christ the Redeemer, and the ride to the top of Sugarloaf Mountian. spent our nights at JW Marriott resort.
Day 3 January 11 Flew to Iguazu it is between Brazil and Argentina, we saw it from both sides there are 275 falls in all , few waterfalls in the world can compare to the beatuy and majesty of the Iguazu Falls. We spent the night in the Panoramic Hotel Iguazu, on the Argentina side.
Some took a boat ride up the river to the falls I did not want to climb back up the hills, but I saw as much as the rest from where the guide took me and 4 other people. We saw some nose bears, a lot of butterflies.
Day 6 we will fly to Buenos Aires to board the ship.

A day in Yellowstone Park

On Tuesday July 6 2010, Katherine,Alyssa,& Desiree and myself took a drive to Jackson Wy, ate a lunch walked around for a while drove on though Jenny lake and on to the park. We stopped to take pictures, taking our time . We saw a couple of bison a few elk and deer we arrive at West Yellowstone in time to pick up the tickets for the 8:30 show at the Play mills. Of course we had to have our Pizza as Desi says it is our tradition when they come to Idaho, the musical was "Seven Brothers and Seven Brides" It was enjoyable. We traveled 350 miles left here at 10:00 got home 12:00 I think. A fun day.

Saturday July 10, 2010

Today Katherine, Desi, and I went to Town and Country to get a new tomato plant and ladybugs. I had my nephews come and dig up my cattails it was great that Alan, Michael, and Gary came to do it.
We had pizza and fruit smootie which I made which was very good, Desi really liked it.
Marj had invited us to come over to her place to play games. We played Progressive Rummy and I lost. We went downstairs to play her Wii Sport. We played bowling and Desi won the first game and Marj came in second, I came in third, and the next game Desi won again Marj and Katherine both tied for second, and I was last. We had a lot of fun and laughed a lot. It was a GREAT day! Now Desi is teaching me how to put my blog on.

Katherine, Alyssa, and Desi came up to windy Idaho to get out of the heat! They were hungry because they left at 6:00 in the morning so we had chicken salad sandwitches. Then they all went to sleep except Desi. Desi and I ran to the bank but it was closed because of the holiday. Now Desi is helping me set up a blog and she is typing this right now!!! ( Grandma is telling me what to say though!)this is as far as we got in July.

I have just spent an hour writing a new blog and lost it all so I will try it again. The best time of Summer is when some of my Children come to Idaho. While the girls were here we took a drive to Jackson WY, and on to Yellowstone. We spent a short time in Jackson did a little shopping and ate our lunch there in a park. We drove on to Teton Park area took our time stopped to take pictures. Then on into Yellowstone Park. We go to the park quite often most each year when the kids come up so we did not spend much time looking at things we did see bison, and elk, got some pictures of them.
We had tickets to the Play Mills to see Seven Brothers and Seven Brides, We aways enjoy the show at the Playmills and of course we have to have Pizza at Petes, as Desi says it is tradition, then there is the long drive home thanks to Katherine she drives home.
When I am with the kids either here or at there place we go to a movie that is about the only time I go. We went to Letters to Juliet it is a real good movie only I slept though most of it. At least I did get to see it a few weeks later Marjorie and I went to it, I saw it all this time.
The rest of the summer I do a little yard work when it need to be done. I read a lot.

We have the Bill Reeds family reuion at the Farm, those of the family that can come, it is always fun to see brothers and sister and their families we are now to the part where we have greatgrandchildren, we spend the after noon some times we go up to the old house it is falling down little by little. It is so beautiful up there you can see all the fields many miles up the country to the mountains, looking east and west way down in the valley to Ririe, and some of the Snake River, you go up on the hill back of the house and can see many more fields to the south.

When winter comes it is the time I go to AZ, and CA where the girls live, I go to visit Curtis off and on other times and I also get to see the college grand kids that go to BYU and curtis's kids and my great grandchildren.
