Jamba Juice Recipes

 


 
Peach Pleasure
 
I found these Jamba Juice recipes online. I'm going to try them out and see how they taste. If you find one that is really good or have suggestions on how to make these recipes better let me know. Enjoy!
 
A little knowledge about these recipes.
1 scoop = ½ cup
5-6 ice cubes is about 1 cup crushed ice
Frozen fruit is so important to make them have the same texture as Jamba Juice.  You can use fresh fruit and get a thinner smoothie.

Hope you enjoy, I sure am.

Vegas in July

On our way home from Vegas this year we took the LONG way :) We stopped and visited Bryce Canyon. We only stayed in the park long enough to see some of the views, but it was still really fun.
 
 

 


We spent on day on the Vegas Strip. It was fun to see some places that we haven't seen before. We visited during the day so that it was more family friendly. As night approached we decided to head home.


 
 





The best part of going to Vegas is staying at the Nelson's home. Stan's parents bought this as a second vacation get-a-way. We love to go down to Vegas mainly because we have a fun place to stay and swim. The boys truly became fish this trip. They were swimming with and without their life vests and really having a good time. I love swimming too, and we literally spent days and days in the pool.


Timpanogos Cave


"Captivating Canyon Caves"

We had the opportunity to go with my family to Timpanogos Cave yesterday. It was an amazing experience, and I am happy that we were able to do it with two small boys, and with me approaching the seventh month in my pregnancy. The only way to reach the cave entrance is to hike up a strenuous 1 1/2 mile trail which rises 1,092 feet. The trail was paved and proved to be a good, hard hike. I was so proud of how my little family was able to climb the mountain trail. We started two hours before our cave tour time so that we would have plenty of time to reach the top. Stan could have done it in half the time, but I am grateful he suggested that we start so early because I needed the full two hours. Gregory who is now five years old was able to hike to the top, through the cave, and reach the bottom all on his own. He did very well. George, two and a half years old, did very well as he walked up 3/4th on his own. At that point he told Stan and I that he needed to use the bathroom, so Stan put him on his shoulders and rushed up the steep trail. Gregory stayed with me, and at times would hold my hand and try to drag me up a little faster.
My parents and siblings started long after us, and at this point caught up with us. We finished together and made it in time for our cave tour.

We made it to the top. Elevation 6,730 feet. 
 "Explore an underground world naturally unseen. Taste the thrill of caving as you twist and bend to enter beautifully decorated rooms. Learn the science behind formations and colors once thought of as mysterious. Leave some room for discovery too- not everything about caves is completely understood." -http://www.nps.gov/tica/index.htm


Inside the cave!

Inside the cave was simply magical. It was so fascinating to witness the different caves, their beauty, and hear about the stories of how each was first discovered many years ago. We were very lucky because the weather worked in our favor. On the climb up it was partly cloudy but soon became overcast. While we were in the cave it apparently rained, hailed, and there was enough lightning that the rangers discouraged many hikers from continuing the hike up. However, by the time we had finished our tour of the cave, the rain had stopped and the weather was perfect and cool. It made for a great hike down and we were able to completed the 3.5 mile round trip hike.

Overall, we all had a great time, and I can't wait to come back to Timpanogos Cave.

Here is some helpful information if anyone is interested in learning more. "The round-trip hike and tour of the cave system takes about three hours. Mid-summer temperatures on the trail can reach 100 degrees F. However, temperatures in the caves average 45 degrees, so a sweater or light jacket is recommended. Hiking shoes, water, flashlights and sunscreen will make your visit safe and enjoyable." -http://www.nps.gov/tica/index.htm

Moving yet again to....CORK, IRELAND!

Here's surprise number two... we are moving to Cork, Ireland. 

Stan and I started our marriage living in Wymount BYU married housing. After our first year there we moved to a Condo by the train tracks. Then about a year later we moved to Orem and bought our first home. After three and a half years, we moved to Tooele and bought a second home and rented out the Orem one. I thought we would live in Tooele for a long time, but interestingly enough after almost a year we have rented it out as well and we are heading for a new adventure. I still cannot believe we are moving to IRELAND!

Stan's company was nice enough to send Stan and I over to Cork, Ireland in June to find a home, a school for Gregory, and investigate prices on internet, TV, phones, cars, taxes, etc We tried to think of everything and began to price it all out. I think now we have a good idea what to expect, at least a better one. We found a lovely school for Gregory. It will be absolutely perfect for him. We also found an adorable little townhouse which will be great.



We are going to live in Carrigaline which is about six miles outside Cork City Centre. Stan will be working very close to Carrigaline so that's good. Carrigaline is such a cute village, a perfect place to live and raise our soon-to-be three boys.


During our trip over to Cork we set up our bank accounts. I can now say that I have an "off-shore" bank account :) Here's a picture of one of the branches of the Bank of Ireland in Carrigaline.



This is such an adorable Irish Sweet Shop. It was full of yummy candies, chocolates, and homemade treats. I'm sure we will be spending some time in this shop in the future.


Now the next few photos are of the City Centre. It's a 10-15 minute drive from the village where we will be living. One night we went to a lovely restaurant where we found a natural spring that turned into a beautiful waterfall right in the center of Cork.




I love that in Cork it's really close to the Ocean. There are many rivers that run in from the ocean into the city. This is the River Lee, when the wind blows I sometimes could smell the sweet smells of the ocean.


This is a more modern part of the City Centre, there's a huge section of nice shops and department stores. I'm excited to go shopping there and updating my style to a more modern, European wardrobe. It's going to be a lot of fun.



Here's a view from up on the one side of Cork. The main portion of the city is down in a valley and there are hills that surround most of the City Centre. The landscape is green and beautiful. I will miss the mountains, but Ireland is quite beautiful, there is much that will fill the mountain void.




Castles are amazing in Europe. I've seen castles all over Europe, but never in Ireland. Here is Blarney Castle, which is a 15-20 minute drive outside the City Center in the opposite direction from where we will be living in Carrigaline.

The Blarney Castle was amazing, truly a beautiful place, especially hundreds of years ago when it was lived in. I cannot wait to bring Gregory and George back to this castle in a couple of months. They will love it!


So beautiful and green. There are rivers and lakes everywhere in Ireland.





Here is the entrance into the dungeons. The boys will especially love this place.
When we come back, I think we should be in sweats or in clothes we don't care much about, so we can crawl back in the dungeons and really get a feel for those that were forced to live there.






Can you imagine living there in that chateau, it's not a castle, but what a lovely place nestled in-between the trees and foliage.

I think because I was pregnant, it kind of made me sick to think about all the people who were kissing this stone, so I chose not to, but here is Stan kissing the Blarney Stone! Good for you Stan, I hope you get all the good luck, luxury, and wealth that was promised to you!






About a 30 minute drive past Carrigaline, you'll get to a beautiful little village next to the seaside. It was so lovely. I really wanted to find a home to live in out here, and we did find some very very lovely homes overlooking the sea.  However, we knew we would pay a fortune in gas commuting. We experienced this living in Tooele. It's been so wonderful, but Stan drove 50 miles each way to get to Draper... and the gas did add up.






Look what I found by the seaside, a goat!



This beach looks fun! I'm told if we had traveled 30 minutes in the other direction, we would find sandy beaches. I think both will be fun to play in.


Cork, Ireland...we are excited to call you home. I cannot believe we are being given this amazing opportunity. It will be a grand adventure, and I'm planning on making it the best that we can. I will miss my family and good friends back in Utah, so we will have to make up for that by discovering and traveling around Europe. Ryan Air will be my best friend as we can get tickets to other European countries from 10-20 euros. It should be a great experience for our family. We will even have a baby there! Wish me good luck with that :)
