Summer Fun

This summer is flying by! Here's a little of what we've been up to so far.

We went to Cali for Justin's little sister Megan's graduation. Go Wildcats!!
On our flight over to Megan's graduation, we flew with the whole Salt Lake City Real Soccer team! The airplane even had a soccer player guy on it. It was pretty sweet.
My friend had baby pigs!!!! This one is freaking out in my arms. I never knew they could squeal like that!

We hit up a Raptor's game with my brother Dallon and his wife Nicole, the Valleta's and the Stuarts.
Dusted off the beamer and put her up for sale. Anyone want it? :)
My niece and nephew Rex and Ellie helped out with the car wash.
Celebrated my brother's Birthday at Ahh Sushi. Justin likes to entertain Winter, my niece.
Went up to my sister-in-law Nicole's cabin up in Lava Hot Springs. It was so beautiful up there and so much fun! We were obsessed with playing this bean bag game.
Played around on the 4 wheelers while we were up there....
Along with lots of game playing!

There's a little of what we've been up to! Justin is in school this semester taking 16 credits and working full time so I'm glad we've been able to get away here and there so he doesn't go insane. Hope everyone else's summer is going swell!!!

The Best 2 Years

I can't believe how much I've been slacking!!! I'll now attempt to catch up! June 8th was our 2 year anniversary. I can't believe that it's already been two years. It seems like we just got married!!! But I do have to say that it has been so much fun and has just gotten better and better! I remember the first year we were married people kept saying "The first year is always the hardest" and I would say that that just wasn't true because we were having the time of our lives!!! Although, looking back, I would say that the hard part was me and my craziness that seemed to come from nowhere. I blame it on the birth control, but who knows? Anyway, it took a little over a year to get over that and I can now say it's mostly gone. I just wanted to let Justin know how much I love him and how glad I am that we are sealed forever. Thanks for taking me to the temple 2 years ago to be yours forever! I love you!!!

So we went to Florida the month before our anniversary, and had a little trip to California planned a few days after our anniversary, so we didn't plan any major getaway. But we went to our favorite sushi place for dinner, went for a drive up beautiful American Fork Canyon (we were going to hike Timpanogos Cave, but it was rainy) and then went to buy us a new frog. Here he is. His name is Poncho Villa.

I do have to say, I do not love him. Having him has made me realize what a good frog Sapo was. Who knew frogs could actually have different personalities?? Sapo was so good. He let me hold him all the time and I would take him out of his cage and hand feed him crickets and everything. Sometimes he would jump away but only like a couple times and then I'd get him to crawl back on my hand and put him in his cage. Poncho is a complete spazoid!!! He was going crazy in the container we bought him in on the drive home, so I put him in the cage and gave him 3 days to acclimate before I took him out to feed him. He literally jumped out of the cage the second the lid came off and jumped about 20 times around the living room. He's only like an inch big and I was so afraid I'd lose him. I finally caught him with a glass cup and then put him in a little cricket container with the lid in and threw in some crickets hoping he'd eat them. I didn't want to just put him in his big cage with him because his cage lid is mesh and the crickets can get through them. But in the little cricket container he just sat there and let the crickets jump all over them. He wouldn't even eat them. I was so mad at him I just put him back in his cage and threw the crickets in and hoped he'd eat them before they all jumped through the mesh and therefore in our house. I saw him eat only 1. And that's how it's been ever since. He's too spazzy to take out of the cage, so I'm sure we have crickets hiding around our house. This picture with me holding him is literally today, July 21st. This is the first time I've held him and I think the only way it happened was he was fat from eating yesterday and I woke him up from his nap, so he was half asleep and I got him on my hand. Crazy Poncho.

At Sushi Ya!!!

I got Justin this sweet watch.

And Justin got me these beautiful flowers and I'm awaiting a ring he ordered me that's so pretty! It's got pink princess cut sapphires and I can't wait till we get it! Thanks for 2 years of the best memories honey!!!! Happy Anniversary!!!!
