Jensen Family Reunion

We spent last week in Utah for a reunion. I was terrified of the 12 hour drive there and home, but Rae did wonderful. Not one fit the whole way. (Although we did keep her happy with and endless supply of juice, goldfishes, Cheerios, and Baby Einstein.) Thanks for letting us use your portable DVD player Jill! I am positive it is the ONLY reason that our drive was pleasant.

This is the house in Pleasant Grove, UT Jeff was raised in until he moved to Arizona when he was five. It was so much fun to drive around and see all of the places that I have heard stories about! Rae really enjoyed getting dirty at the lodge. The cleanest place for her to crawl around was outside in the grass. Her mother must have been nutty to pack white shorts for her when we were going to be camping!

I was able to ride the zip-line while we were there. For those of you who don't know me, I am DEATHLY afraid of heights. It was hard to step off the platform, but so much fun to ride down!
This is almost all of the family that came up for the reunion. We took this picture right before we left the canyon to come home. (Joel and Kristina had stayed in a hotel-definitely easier with a baby, but that is why they weren't in the picture. I may have been jealous for a minute or two, I do love climate controlled rooms!)

We spent the first day in Lagoon. Jeff and I got ride the rides thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Johnson staying with Rae. Rae enjoyed playing in Aunt Eden's wheelchair.

Help me...please?

I am having a harder time than I thought trying to figure out Coupon sense. It isn't that I have questions, rather I think I just need someone to explain it to me. I think I understand the logistics, but how can I apply them when I go shopping to make the most of my coupons and dollars?
