New Ride...

Well, we finally sold our car this week, and found a new one. Pretty exciting!! Here are a few pictures of the car. It should be a good little car for us. Charles keeps finding little things wrong with it, but I just don't look for them, so I think it's great! Last night we got to go to the Jazz game... it was cool to be there, but sad they lost. We were on THE last row of the arena. Pretty funny. You can actually still see pretty good from up there though. I was surprised. They built it well! Anyway, the rest of our memorial day was spent taking pictures. It was pretty fun. I took engagement pictures in the morning and then we just went around taking pictures of everything. Maybe I'll throw in a few of those too. Charles is becoming my model... and I think he likes it. Every time he hears the sound the camera makes when it takes a picture, he strikes a new pose. It's pretty funny, but not all that surprising! Hope y'all had a great memorial day!

Photography fun...

As a lot of you know, I've been trying to figure out some photography stuff lately. It's been a lot of fun so far. We are gonna go up tonight hopefully and take some cool pictures in the canyon and stuff. I have been reading my camera manual and learning a lot, and haven't had a chance to use it yet since I started reading it. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get some better pictures by doing that. Anyway- here are a few of my favorites so far...

Pressure, Pressure...

Ok, I am getting harassed for not updating this enough! I guess I better fill y'all in. We sold our Rodeo this week, woohoo! Now we are on the hunt for a car. We have looked at a few this week, but have been pretty disappointed. We are going to look at an Avalon today that we are pretty excited about, hopefully it goes well and we are no longer car-less. Don't get me wrong... the scooter is great, but the weather hasn't been too great here. I think I got pneumonia this morning riding state street for an hour to go see two cars. Anyway- we had a great trip last week to Washington- we went to Sam's preschool graduation which was exciting. We took him to Tacoma to go to the zoo for a day. That was a lot of fun, but I think it wore him out pretty good, he zonked out in the car on the way home. For a little boy, he can snore pretty loud! We are officially half way done with the term! WOOHOO! That is exciting, I am ready for a change. I am taking Chinese 101 during summer term. Charles is already giving me lessons, I think it'll take some work, but it will be fun to know a little Chinese. Maybe it will make me sound smart or something. Here are a few pictures from our trip...
We bought some food so Sam could feed the goats, and he threw it at them, he didn't want to get their germs on him- haha!

Much Needed Vacation

I am counting down the hours till we get to leave for Washington! We are going to watch the boys while Charles' parents finish up their trip to the Holy Land! We can't wait to get a little bit of a break from our busy schedules and have some fun with the boys. We talked to Sam yesterday and told him we would be there soon and he told us he has drawn us some pictures and wants us to play legos with him. I am really excited! I will take some pictures and tell you all about our adventures in Wa. Woohoo!!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Emily got on to me for not posting... so I thought I would catch y'all up real quick. We are finishing our 2nd week of spring term today!! That means we only have 4 weeks left! Right now we are keeping ourselves very busy. We are both working 30-40 hours a week and taking a full load of classes. It keeps us on campus from 745 to 630 everyday. We are excited to get a break next week to go take care of Charles' brothers while his parents are finishing up their Israel trip. We are really excited to get a break from school and work for a few days.

One of the new exciting things we are doing now is... Photography! I have always loved taking pictures, and always wanted to do something with it, just hadn't yet- until now! I decided just to jump into it. I started out offering it for free, just so I can get some experience and have something to show for myself before I start charging, but I think I'm to the point now that from here on I will be charging, but just a little bit. I have about 5 people wanting me to do their weddings this summer, so that's kind of fun. I am taking pictures of a little girl tonight, two families tomorrow, and another on Monday before we head out Tuesday. I'll post some pictures (if they turn out good). Before too long we will probably have a website up... trying to think of a name still. Charles wants us to do "No BULL Photography"... I think he's still a little bitter about a past photographer. Any suggestions for names? We will probably end up with Himmer Photography or something original like that. Anyway- watch out Annie, Chloe, and Logan... you're up when we get to Texas!!

Anyway- thats what is keeping us busy for now! We are still trying to sell the Rodeo- not having much luck though. We dropped the price this week, so maybe that will help- we'll see. I'll try to be better about posting! Hope everyone is doing great!
