Finally Rained!

Its been record breaking heat here in Salt Lake over the last several weeks.  But, luckily, it finally rained the last few days and gave us a break.  The rain brought out the snails.  Here’s a couple cruising around our driveway:

Tracy and I got some new fancy LED Christmas lights that change colors.  Its not quite up to Clark Griswald’s standards, but it was still fun setting them up.

Amy’s Broccoli & Cheddar Bake
