Memorial Weekend

This weekend Jonny and I made the familiar drive up to Logan to spend some time with his grandparents and cousins that live there. The plan was to go spend Sunday night in Logan and then head up to Bear Lake the next morning. We were lucky enough to get an amazing Sunday dinner from his grandma and then we had cake to celebrate his cousin and granddad's birthdays. We played a few games of Ticket to Ride, which is pretty fun.
On Monday we went to the Logan Cemetery where Jonny has several relatives buried. We left a beautiful flower arrangement (made by Grandma Anderson) on his Grandma Harris' grave. It was amazing how many people were there to visit graves for Memorial Day. We then headed up to Bear Lake. This is when our awesome plans took a major hit. While Logan was nice and sunny the lake was covered with very large, threatening, dark clouds. (This is not my picture but it is a pretty good representation of what we were looking at). We made a stop at La Beau's for the famous raspberry shakes and some very good burgers. As we were eating the sun came out so we were optimistic as we headed to the beach. We were there for probably about 15 mins before the wind came and then another 10 before the rain give it another 10 before we were all loaded into the cars and on our way back. We did have some fun trying to play Ultimate Frisbee before the wind hit. Jonny was the only one who actually got in the water and I think he regretted it after, it took too long to warm up. Luckily when we got back to Logan it was still nice and sunny so we had a game of Ultimate Frisbee. It was fun and pretty evenly matched which always makes it better. I fell, dove and rolled a few times trying to get the Frisbee which means that I can barely move today but it was worth it. I am proud that all that diving lead to one pretty awesome catch. We ended the day with a game of Settlers of Catan, can't say that is one of my favorites but it was fun to be around everyone. That is pretty much what I did this weekend. Sorry for the lack of personal pictures but there really wasn't a lot that was easy to take a picture of (I think I took two the whole weekend and I don't have my camera with me right now). Hope everyone else had an amazing weekend!

I love the summer and I feel like it is really starting. It is getting hotter and I go to the pool almost daily, one of the advantages of staying at Raintree. However, my days at the pool are numbered because I will be starting a job. I'm very excited about it but I will miss the laid back days at the pool.

Just including this because it is one of my favorite summer pictures.Happy summer everyone!

Photo Fun

I got a Macbook about 2 weeks ago and I have been having fun exploring all the features. One of my favorites is all the options there are for pictures. I have been making lots of slideshows, which unfortunately are not wanting to post here at this time, but they are on Facebook. I made one for my mom for Mother's Day and then one of Jonny and me and one of college in general. We took some pictures today jumping into the pool and swimming around to go into the slideshow.

This is the only one of us jumping into the pool that is not blurry but the guy cut Ashley out. I am not happy.
Then we just took some in the pool.

Our "chicken fight"Luckily the pool was nice and warm for us.

I love you Mom!

I figured since it is Mother's Day I should do a little tribute to my wonderful mom. She is an amazing woman and I know she would do anything for our family. She is a great example to all of us and I hope that I can be a mother like her some day. I don't know what I would do without her. I enjoy spending time with her doing whatever, shopping, watching TV or just talking. I'm so grateful to have her in my life. She has always been one of my best friends and I am so happy that I have always had such a good relationship with her. Thank you for everything you do Mom, I love you so much, Happy Mother's Day!

Spring is HERE!

Finally spring is really here! The snow is gone and the weather is beautiful. There is still some rain but that's ok it doesn't last long and I do like rain is small amounts.I love all the flowers but I hate the trees with the white flowers, they smell awful but at least they look kinda nice. And it is so nice to have the pool open and the grill is open too. Ashley and I went out to the pool today and yesterday and laid out and got free food and drinks. I just wanted to share my happiness about the warm weather with everyone.
