Ed Week

I figured I better post something before I start getting comments telling me to update. But... not too much has been going on. Last weekend we went to see Beauty and the Beast at a theater in Sandy. It was really good, Charles surprised me and I loved it! Since then, the Himmer clan has arrived and we have been having a lot of fun with them. we have been going to education week ehre at BYU. For those of you who don't know about Ed Week, its basically a week of classes on anything you can imagine. Religious, educational, self-help.. you name it, and there is probably a class about it! It has been a lot of fun and we are learning a lot. After the week is over, we will head to Washington for some much needed vacation! I'm sure I'll have pictures to show then... but that's about it for now!

Half Marathon

As a lot of you know, yesterday was our big half marathon. There is not much to say about it other than... WE DID IT! Charles and Kyle both had very "respectable" times. haha... It was a fun little challenge, but boy are we feeling it today! I feel like a 90 year old women walking around all hunch backed trying to shuffle myself around. Anyone have a wheel chair they would like to donate?? Just kidding... its not so bad... Alissa got a few pictures, unfortunately... I was running so fast past the finish line, the camera couldn't capture my speed. It did get the two slow pokes as they crossed... :)

Go BEES!!!

Kent and Melanie invited us to go with their family to a Salt Lake Bees game last night. They are the AAA Baseball team up there. It was a lot of fun!! Not the most eventful baseball game I have ever been to, but it was a lot of fun to get out and do something different! We went up with Kyle and Alissa and met up with lots of family at the game. They were celebrating Lacey’s 5th birthday!! Happy Birthday Lacey!!

Bridal Veil Falls

Well... I realize it has been about a month since I last posted a blog. My apologies to everyone who has been harassing us about it ;) We have been pretty busy with work and school lately, but we have managed to do a few picture worthy activities in the mean time. Last Saturday we went on a little hike with Charles' cousin Steven and his girlfriend Allison. We LOVE hanging out with these two. Allison is such a fun girl and has the most contagious laugh I have ever heard... so we have a lot of fun with them. Anyway, we went for a little bit of a hike up to the waterfalls which was kind of funny. We hiked up this pretty steep part of the mountain all of us down on all fours so we wouldn't fall on the loose gravel. About half way up, Charles said... Oh yeah- I remember now, there is a nice little switchback trail a little bit to our left! Nice thing to know as you are trying not to fall down a mountain... Anyway- when we got to the top of our rock climbing adventure, sure enough there was a nice little trail for us to take down. It was pretty fun, just a short little hike, but we had a lot of fun having another couple to hang out with. It doesn't hurt that Allison thinks Charles is hilarious.... he HATES that! Anyway, here are a few pictures from the adventure.

This is the trail we came up instead of the easy one Charles remembered half way up :)
