Late Posting...

So on July 20th Chase and I celebrated our one year anniversary!! I can't belive how fast the first year has gone by... So we decided to celebrate it with those who have helped us make it through!! We headed up to Bear Lake with Kelly & Camilly and Grant & Lindy.
Saturday (the 19th) we headed up and snagged the last camp site at Sunrise Campground (I highly recommend it to everyone). We set up camp and went into town and browsed the shops and enjoyed a shaved ice! Later Chase and I went to The Pickleville Playhouse and enjoyed a dutch oven dinner and the play "Thoroughly Modern Millie". It was really great! Good food, great play!! Then we headed back up to camp and roasted starbursts!!
Sunday morning we headed down for a day at the lake. It was a great day. The weather was nice, a little overcast so it wasn't scorching hot... but we all burned because of it! The boys (Chase, Grant & Kelly) spent a few hours building the mother of all sand castles. I have to admit, it was pretty impressive!! It was complete with a homemade flag, and a stick door! The day was great and we all had a lot of fun! I can't think of a better way to celebrate our first year of marriage together!!

Back to School!!

So I have been struggling with the decision to go to school or not go to school. And finally we got Chase's subaru sold, so I decided - - - GO TO SCHOOL!! I'm going to Stacey's Beauty School starting September 2nd! I'm so excited.. I'll be enrolled in the Master Esthetics program. So everyone get ready cause I'm the next wax queen!!

I'm really excited, and also a little nervous about it all. I'll still be working in Logan, and driving to Ogden for class. I'm only going part time so its going to take 18 months to finish up. Hopefully something will come along and maybe I can get a job a little closer to home and school so I won't get so burned out on the drive!
Anywho.. I'm really excited to get into a new career! So all of you better come and see me and let me practice on ya!

Weber Fireworks...

On the 13th we trucked down to Weber State to enjoy the orchestra and fireworks put on for the 24th of July. We met the Rall's and the Romero's there and enjoyed a night with our friends.
We went early to get some catching up done, and of course to feed the mass number of ducks who live on the pond there. I have to admit it was pretty fun to watch Maddux throw the whole piece of bread out to one duck! And the baby duckies were pretty cute too!
The fireworks were fun to watch (since we didn't see any on the 4th)... and it was a great night!

4th of July Weekend..

For the 4th we headed up to Idaho to hang out with my family (The Cook's). It was a ton of fun. We went camping at Little Wood Resevoir. Its about 2 hours from my house. We had a great time. Dad got the little fishing boat up and running so we puttered across the river to a little cove that we figured no one would be at. We were right. It was such a fun time camping with my parents. It makes me appreciate what a great childhood I had and how much my children (when we have some) will learn from my dad - - - The Great Outdoorsman!!
We fished late Friday night, and caught about 9 between four of us. And went out the next morning on the lake and slayed them! We came home with about 22 fish!! In Idaho they have a kind of fish lottery. Some money fish have been planted in a bunch of lakes. We were hoping to get lucky and score big. But we didn't. It was still tons of fun!
We relaxed on the stickery beach of the lake, shot at some targets (just call Chase "dead eye dick"), we cooked smores and had a great time! Here are some photos!

Bear Lake!!

A few weekends ago our friends, the Richards', invited us up to Bear Lake. It was a random decision to go, so we packed up after work on Friday and got to the camp spot at about 9:30 p.m. It was a ton of fun. Dave, Jayme and their girls, Lyvie & Abi had their camp all set up (they had been there since the night before). So we crashed in and hung out for a night with them.
The next morning the Richards' packed up and went home while Chase and I ventured over to the beach. It was a busy day at Bear Lake. We got there early and within an hour the whole beach was lined with umbrellas and beach towels. It was fun just the two of us. Chase took a nap in the shade while I layed out in the sun. The water was freezing cold, and neither of us could go past our knees.
It was the beginning of many good trips to come this summer!! Thanks Dave & Jayme for letting us bum with you!
