Camping down South

Last weekend was mountain lakes and streams, this weekend was dry deserts. But equally fun! We camped in Moab with Dave, Kaylene, Mike and Sara, hiked to Delicate Arch at sunset, ate at yummy restaurants, and on Saturday did a 10 miler through the Needles District of Canyonlands. It was HOT but we had a fun time. We saw some cool stuff. And hey, we love these people! We have so much fun together.
Thanks Kaylene for being our photographer. :) Click the pic to see more.

Strawberry Days

I'm waiting to get pictures of our camping trip this weekend, so in the meantime I'll post our pics from the Strawberry Days Rodeo. We didn't bring our big camera so the pictures aren't amazing, but we love the people in them and we had fun at the rodeo. This year featured motocross riders doing backflips! And there's always the delicious strawberries and cream.
P.S. There are also two random pics of us after a wedding reception... notice my mom and my coordinating outfits. No we did not plan it, yes we think alike.

Evening at the Lake

We loved trying out my family's new boat on Utah lake the other night. The boat is so fun and we had time for some crazy tubing and our first attempt at wake surfing. Awesome! We're looking forward to many more boating trips this summer. This is the first year in a long time we won't be going to Powell so we're going to make up for it. Gotta get that skiing in! Check out our pictures by clicking the one above. The sunset lighting was perfect!

P.S. Running Update: I ran 5 miles today! Woo!

Silver Lake

We had a backpacking adventure with Kyle and Michelle up American Fork Canyon to a place called Silver Lake. Camping, hiking, fishing and great weather. We took our camera and got some great pictures. It was so fun.

Happy Birthday, Klane!

I am so grateful for my wonderful husband. He is so good to me and he is such a deeply good person. Klane teaches me every day with his example of patience, integrity, testimony, hard work, dedication, kindness... the list goes on and on. Thanks for being the perfect husband. Happy birthday babe, I'm so glad you were born!
We had a fun birthday celebration with Klane's family yesterday. We celebrated Lynsie's and Klane's birthdays. Delicious dinner, cake and ice-cream, and touch football in the yard. It was such perfect weather we had to take advantage of it. We love our family and we love doing fun things together. Click the picture to see the rest.

Day One

All right everyone, I am doing it. I'm going to run the Top of Utah half-marathon in August. Today was officially "day one" of my training schedule. To those of you who are marathoners, I applaud you, because just doing half will be the hardest thing I've ever done. But I'm excited! So cheer me on and if you want to run with me, please do! I'm pretty sure Lynsie's already on board. Yeah!

We were feeling abandoned this weekend. Annie, Chris, Lynsie and Nathan are on a cruise; Mike and Sara are at Yosemite with her family; Kyle and Michelle are in Israel with her family; my dad, Justin and Brandon were at Zion's Camp; and my mom went to visit her parents in So Utah. It was just us, Klane's parents and Lynsie's kids yesterday! Come home everyone, we miss you!

I did find something to occupy me though... I started reading The Host, Stephenie Meyer's new book, and I am officially sucked in. It is really good. I read all day Sunday. Love it! Can't put it down! Definitely recommend it.
