Boating Trip!

Last weekend we were able to go boating with some of our good friends the Petersons!

We went tubing and were able to relax all day. Wes and I love boating and nothing can be better than being with friends at the same time. Mauri, Nash, and Adam were all there too! We LOVE you guys!!

Jack Johnson

This last Monday for family night, we went to a Jack Johnson concert. We were able to go with our friend Andrew and his lady-friend Jenna (Yes--all you Arizonians, she's a Hatch and grew up in Snowflake with Erin, Scott, and Jake!). It was quite an exciting evening, topped off by a neighbor spilling his beer on our blanket, we four being the only ones NOT smoking mary j's, and Wes wishing he could knock out a drunk person as a multitude of them wobbled by. We had a really fun time listening to Jack's amazing tunes.

Wes's Big Catch

For those of you who don't know my dad, let me tell you that he is an avid fly-fisherman with the skills to prove it. So when Wes graduated from college--my dad saw the perfect opportunity to bring Wes to the dark side. Wes got a new fly rod, all of the flies he could ever want, and a lot of gear to go along with it. He practiced up in Wyoming this summer, but he didn't catch anything. Last week he went up to the ranch again and this time he caught his first real beauty. I think the joy he felt was indescribable. It IS a pretty good looking fish. Wahoo! Any way, he's hooked....

Me and my Cowboy (YEEHA!)

For the 24th of July, Spanish Fark (Fork for non-hicks) has a huge rodeo. I've always wanted to be a rodeo queen, so we decided to go with some friends. It was all fun and games until I found out that rodeo queens cannot be married and they have to know how to ride a horse and hold a humongous flag AT THE SAME TIME. There goes my lifelong dream.

Lake Powell and San Diego

Wes's rad cousin Keith just got married last Saturday, so we decided to head down to San Diego to join in the festivities. But, first we had to make a three day stop at Lake Powell to help us get in the right spirit of things. :) We LOVE Lake Powell and spent every second we could wake-boarding, tubing (ouch on the knees!), and we even tried surfing! :) San Diego was beautiful--the weather was perfect and we loved being with Keith and Tricia for their big day. The temple is breath-taking and so is the surrounding area. Hey--we even got to go and see Wicked on the way out of town in L.A. It was a great trip.
