The 4th of July

Chad and I were able to go to McCall (Donnelly) over the fourth of July for my family reunion. We DROVE the whole way non stop. It was a crazy 17 hours after Chad working all day. But it was worth it to get to the cabin before everyone woke up. After the cabin we were able to go to the temple with Angelie to receive her endowments and then we went to lunch with Chad's family. On our way through Utah we were also able to stop and have lunch with Chad's Dad. So, we can say that it was a very successful trip. Here are some of our activities (there are a lot of pictures on this post but they are all fun so scroll to the end!):

Enjoying some time around the campfire with my sister Angelie and sister-in-law Melissa

Everynight we all have dinner together. Here we are enjoying Bob and Kim's delicious Sunday Italian.

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

Chad and I roastin some mallows

Okay, I thought this was pretty funny. My cousins brought their fishing rods so Chad tried his hand at fishing here's his fish, and the other picture is what the triplets caught. Haa haa

Chad is mastering the art of waterskiing

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!

Can you believe how big Tanner (my nephew) is and his red hair? I remember when the triplets were this big.

And of course this post wouldn't be complete without a picture of these three. It was really fun to be able to hang out with them. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving.

My little project

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!



Computer Woes

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!!

Fun at the Zoo

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...
