Chad and I finally went to a concert together and it couldn't have been better! It was an outdoor fest in a park, downtown Tempe. It started out being a little warm (yeah still in the 100s) but once the sun set it was super nice! The band lineup went like this:
Gavin Rossdale (former lead singer of Bush)
Now you may ask why the B-52s? I have no idea, but the fact that I got to scream Love Shack along with the crazy old group made the whole thing worth it! Chad was super excited when he realized Gavin Rossdale was part of Bush- and who doesn't love Colbie and Jason? Great first concert!
Jason and Colbie

Sarah and I were finally able to escape the heat for a day and head for the mountains for a little bit of cooler weather (105 F) and some fun. Below: Slide Rock near Sedona AZ. We heard that this was the hot spot for people in the Pheonix area, but we were still amazed to see the amount of people there that day. The next two photos are of Sarah and I jumping from a 25-35 ft cliff located at the bottom part of the park. There was also a few higher jumps as well but this was the spot for the young guys to show how brave they were to the girls. Lucky me! Sarah's already made her choice.
If you are ever in the Phoenix area, we would definitely recommend visiting Slide Rock.

There were some good rainstorms in the evenings but it made for great sunrises over the lake. This was taken from our back porch

It was a beautiful night with the low clouds. We were trying to catch the glass water. This is my cousin Jake
The triplets loved riding the tube. I became Aubrey's tube buddy. She was brave and even went with no hands!

Chad and I found this headboard next to the dumpster at our complex (people throw away so much here! There is a couch every week) We checked it out and decided it was still good with a little TLC. So I sanded it down and restained it on our little porch. Then we decided to do our dresser to match it. My arm almost fell off from sanding but it was a fun project and now our furniture matches!

A word to the wise...do not be cheap like me and not buy the anti-virus program when it expires because you will end up paying Best Buy $150 to fix it! I had some major viruses that froze my computer. They couldn't fix it so we ended up having to reboot my computer, meaning they delete EVERYTHING from the computer and take it back to factory settings! For those of you that know me I use the computer ALL the time. I might have had a little breakdown over all the music and programs lost but luckily I am obsessive about backing up pictures and did not lose one!!

My parents sent Chad and I a great gift in the mail a few weeks ago...an Entertainment Book, you know the one with a mass load of coupons in it? We decided since there was a break in the 100 degree weather (it was still high 90s) a couple weeks ago we would go exploring. I saw a coupon for a Wildlife Zoo and Aquarium. We were able to feed the giraffes and realized last year at almost the same exact time we went to the Colorado Springs Zoo for a meeting for Chad's work and we also fed the giraffes there! I guess we like em.
We tried doing the same faces...

May was a great month, not only were Chad and I able to celebrate our one year anniversary but we were able to enjoy a few other weddings!
And last was Chad's cousin Joel and his wife Chelsey. They had a great sealing and also had a ring ceremony for her family. They couldn't have asked for better weather and the ceremony was gorgeous. Thanks for the Goodwood! Mmmm. Congrats guys!

Chad and I have now been married for a year! Time flies by, and mand has it been a busy year for us. We've lived in three states, graduated from school, got our first real job and much much more. For our anniversary we stayed at a little Bed and Breakfast in Greer, AZ. We went mountain biking, fly fishing and fed raccoons our graham crackers while enjoying some hot chocolate on our porch. It was a wonderful weekend in cooler temperatures!
We also stayed with one of Chad's co-worker's family. Their mini horse mated with a donkey and produced this:
I caught a fish my first time fly fishing!
