Lagoon is Wicked!

Last Friday night we went to Lagoon for the Nu Skin summer party. It was so cool. And Wicked is the best ride ever!!! It's their new rollercoaster that starts by going straight up and then straight back down. It was so fun! We only went on it twice because the line was pretty long.

Here we are in front of the newly re-painted Tidal Wave. I've always loved this ride!!

And of course the bumber cars. You can't go to Lagoon and not ride the bumber cars! We had such a blast.

We didn't take a ton of pictures, but I think I'll add one last one of us on the train. It was actually pretty cool seeing all the animals. They had kangaroos and everything. It actually made me miss Australia seeing them.

The next exciting event in our lives is the season premier of The Office tomorrow night. We can't wait!!! We have been spending lots of time catching up on the previous three seasons and have LOVED them!

Big Boy = Lots of Cereal

Brandon will kill me for putting this picture on here but I think it's so cute...I couldn't resist. The other night I walked over into the kitchen and this is what I saw. I guess he was a little hungry. :)

Freakin Awesome Saturday

Me and Bran had a really fun weekend last weekend. On Friday night he played softball and I finally played volleyball again for the first time in a LONG time. It was really fun. Saturday we went and hiked to Timpanogos Cave with Tara and Gary. It was a pretty steep hike but inside the cave was awesome! Here are some pics. Enjoy!

Inside the cave...

Later that afternoon we had a BBQ up in Provo Canyon. Here's Brandon roasting some marshmallows over the charcoal. They were coconut covered and they were so yummy!

Back to BYU-I

Well, since our last post we have done quite a few fun things. We don't have a lot of great pictures but we'll do our best. On August 31st we went to my cabin again for a trip with the whole family. My mom wanted everyone to go to celebrate her 60th birthday on September 1st. Here's a picture of baby Jack getting a lot of attention.

And a really scary picture of me (no make-up) pretending to take a bite out of the huge 80-pound watermelon my parents grew in their garden.

The next adventure for me was going up to BYU-Idaho to drop off my youngest sister, Amy. I can't believe she's old enough to go to college! It's so weird!! Todd gave her his old crappy scooter that sometimes works. Here's a picture of me and Kris taking it for a spin.

Amy brought up a lot more stuff than I did. I think all my things fit in the trunk of a car. There was barely enough room for the two of us in the back of the van. I guess the scooter took up tons of room but was a squished ride. It was crazy how many memories came back when we were up there walking around on campus. And Rexburg has changed a lot since I was there!

Me, Kristen, Amy, and my mom went to Lava Hot Springs for a night on our way to Rexburg. Kristen and Amy tried to float down the river but pretty much nearly got killed so they gave up and me and my mom decided not to do it. I just got in on one slow part of the river for fun. Check out Amy's battle wounds!

We went swimming in the hot pools, and boy were they hot!! Me and Kristen are showing on our fingers that the one pool was 112 degrees! It took a while to get used to being in there.

Brandon was in California watching the BYU vs. UCLA game while I was in Idaho. If he brings home any fun pictures, we'll post them on here. :)

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Brandon took me on a surprise date last Saturday. We went and saw an Owls game at UVSC. We sat on a blanket on the hill which was way fun!! This picture was actually taken by Haley, our 3-year-old niece. I don't think either one of us could have done any better. The game was awesome, we won in the last inning. They had fireworks at the end too. It was a blast!
