Getting Closer!

So its getting closer to my cruise to the Bahamas! I am getting so excited! The only thing left to do is book all the activities I want to do when we get to the islands. There are so many to choose from. There is of course snorkeling, swimming with dolphins, playing with sea lions and sting rays, tours of the island's pirate exhibits, forests, and zoo, sailing, kayaking, and tons more! So if anyone has some ideas on the best things let me know! I also need some ideas of books that I can take to read. I love sitting by the pool and reading but I hate going to the bookstore and trying to pick a book the "sounds" good and then I just get disappointed! So if anyone has some suggestions for a good book that they've read please tell me!!! I think its about time to start my cruise countdown!! YEAH!!

A Day at the Lake

So yesterday, our Aunt Kari invited Donny and I to go out on the lake with her and her family. At first we were iffy about going because we had heard that at this time of year the lake can get kind of slimy and gross but we decided to go anyway. We got to the lake early and waited for kari to get there. Then we loaded into the boat and hit the lake. I was surprised by how big Utah Lake actually was. There were lots of people on the lake but the whole time we were out there, we only came across 2-3 boats. It was so nice. It was our first time out wakeboarding so once we got out there our cousins Ty and Kyle went first. They made it all look so easy! Then of course Donny gets out there and gets up on his second try! He did an awesome job! Then it was my turn. I have to say that it took me a couple of tries but once I got up it was actually easier than I'd expected!(I also tried the knee board and I have to say wakeboarding is so much easier than that!) I did walk away with a bit of a sunburn, a few bruises, and boy am I sore today but needless to say Donny and I had a great time out on the lake!

I forgot to mention in my last post that I officially finished Breaking Dawn yesterday! I went back and reread the series to get me ready for the new book. And I loved it! Of course there were a few wierd parts for me but in the end I am so happy how it all ended! I don't want to give anything away for those of you who haven't read it yet (shame on you!) but I can definitely say that I bet this is the end of Bella's story and the beginning of another! So now I am looking forward to the Twilight movie! I was so worried that the actors wouldn't match the images I had created in my head while I read each book. I am still "iffy" about the actor who plays Edward especially after I saw the cover of Entertainment weekly! Take a look and tell me what you think...He just looks so much like a zombie or something. Too white, wierd color hair, and who ever pictured Edward Cullen as hairy??? And Bella looks amazing but much more like I would picture her in a different book! ;)

Summer fun

K I know I have been so bad at blogging! Now I know how Brittany felt when I was home and she couldn't blog. Donny's been keeping me pretty busy! But it's been a lot of fun having him here. We've been off doing something almost everyday. And if we aren't out having fun, then we are at home glue to the TV watching the olympics! I love the summer olympics. Swimming has been awesome! As well as gymnastics! Any how- my summer vacation is now winding down and I have to start working officially on Friday! But it really has been a fun summer. And it sure has been action packed! One of my favorites was going to Yosemite with Mom, Britt, and Terry. We hiked about 3 miles up what they call "The Mist Trail" to the top of Vernal Falls. It was absolutely beautiful! Of course Brittany and I had fun taking pictures along the trail. There were some tough moments, especially with all those stone steps but I'm so glad we all made it to the top! I also had fun hanging out with Kristi and the kids! I am so glad we have webcams so that I can see how big they are all getting! Hayden is so adorable. I love his cute little smile! And Jonathan is going to be a little heartbreaker! It was so cute when Donny and I left and the girls were upset that Donny was leaving. They are getting so old! Now I can't wait for a few weeks when Terra and Dakota come to Salt Lake and I finally get to see the little guy! We all had fun playing the wii (boy that wii fit is intense!) and playing bochee ball. I even got a chance to practice snorkeling for my trip in October! LOL what can I say...I love going home to the family!
And now I get to have Donny here. We've been to the water park, played some B-Ball and tennis, and have hung out with the family! We had to come back to Utah a little bit early because I needed to speak at my cousin Tanner's baptism. Its always fun to hang out with our aunts,uncles, and cousins that we usually don't get to see. So like I said, it has been one fun filled summer!
