Life in the Car

Our Summer Adventure is coming to an end... My little car hasn't had this many miles put on it in its life!!!

Number 1

I took Brek back to our first date on the day before the 4th of July! It was really fun I made him get ready in the other room that was his apartment and I got ready in mine! He came to my door and picked me up! We then went to the "Cocoa Bean" for FROZEN hot chocolate because it was way to hot for real hot chocolate, and cupcakes!!

Number 2

HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!

Or in this case 3rd of July! We had a great day we went over to my Aunt Lisa's house for a bbq with some Fam! We took my Grandpa and had yummy food and then swam in the pool! Then we lucked out and got free tickets to the demolition derby and fireworks! The derby lasted way to long and I had more fun watching CRAZY people then the actual event but we had fun! Then we left right after the fireworks because we were so sick of sitting there! ha we went back to Jordan and Randees house and had a hot and ready pizza t 11 at night Poor Little Caesars people hated us, we came in like 10 minutes before they closed!

Then it was back into the car on the 4th to Twin Falls to stay the night, We got there played some Hand and Foot then the next morning got up drove to Washington stayed the night then back in the car to go to Lake Willowa! We got to the Cabin and found out there was no cell reception.... That was bad news! We didn't know what to do! haha but we still had fun! We went down to the lake and rode paddle boats, We were very tired after that but it was fun!!

Then our Favorite was the go-carts we LOVED those things but we were all CRAZY drivers especially a certain husband of mine he kind of broke the rules and would bump people out of his way! But he always won!

We had a lot of Fun!! Thank you Pat and Debbie for the great trip!

Then back in the car to go back to Washington, stayed the night, back to twin stayed the night then back to Utah Sunday morning.

Number 3

When we got back we went straight to Primary Children's Hospital to see Pat Ash and Pres. I found out what happened late Friday night from my sister and never stopped praying! That little family is the most AMAZING family I have ever met! The spirit was so strong in that room and I know that Heavenly Father was watching over them! That little girl touched more people in one week then most can touch in a lifetime! We are so blessed to have Pat and Ash as friends and will never stop praying for them! I know that Heavenly Father will help them through this hard time! We love you guys!

Number 4

Back in the car to Rexburg for the beautiful Kinzies wedding! She was a beautiful bride and it was so much fun to be a part of the whole day!!

The next day we got up got in the car and headed up to Yellowstone! We stopped and had a picnic for lunch and there was a nice park right when we got into town but my dad didn't want to eat there so we found a random picnic area basically in a parking lot... it was pretty funny but thats where he wanted to eat! We were getting circled by crows that I'm pretty sure wanted our food! Then it was to the PLAYMILL!! We went to Beauty and the Beast and it was soooo good!! We had a blast Brek has never been there before and he though it was way cool! The costumes were AMAZING and the actors are always great!!

Yes this is the video camera he chose to bring.... Oh dad

Then into the park we went! My mom found out there was a swimming hole were the hot pods and the river met so it was warm! It was so fun to swim in! Is and Gab are little fish and way strong swimmers!

Then we went and had a picnic while we watched Old Faithful! We even got to see a cowboy and cowgirl get hitched as old faithful went off in the back ground! They were all decked out in tassels and cowboy boots but it was cute!!

There is never a dull moment when my sisters are around we were laughing the whole time!

Thanks mom and dad we had a Blast!

And now the driving is over and I am ok if I don't get back in the car for a VERY long time! In fact I think we should buy a plane But Brek says they are to expensive.... darn!

But we are two very lucky people to be blessed with such great families and friends!
