Fun in the Sun

One weekend last month, Derick and I went camping with some of his friends. Yes- I am still waiting for one of his friends to send me all the pictures! Gosh, leave somethings to guys 
and you'd never get anything done! But we had fun camping and hiking. We hiked down a small gorge which was very cool. And then we did a bit of shooting. I do have to say, that I did pretty good for my first time shooting! But I promise to post more about it all when I get those pictures!

So Derick and I didn't really have any plans for the Memorial weekend. We just knew we wanted to relax and play the rest by ear. But Saturday morning came around and no luck. Derick got a call saying he needed to head down to Arizona for work. But, he being the sweetheart that he is, asked me to come along. Our end destination was the Northern Rim of the Grand Canyon but we had a few stops to hit along the way. It was a long drive but it was nice to spend some time with Derick, just he and I. We saw lots of deer and even got in a stupid car accident when some kids rear ended us. But luckily it wasn't too bad and no one was hurt....just Derick's trunk! :( Well it ended up pouring for a majority of the trip but was nice and sunny as we pulled up to the Grand Canyon. 
Well it sounds like we've done a lot of stuff out doors this last month. Cause we've also enjoyed hiking and bonfires with Derick's brothers and friends in the American Fork Canyon. But don't you worry, we've also spent a lot of time indoors watching all the basketball games. I don't think i've ever watched so much basketball but it sure has been fun! (I can say that now that it's almost over!)  Since all this fun stuff, not much has been going on. Just hanging out here and there and oh, of course work! Thank goodness I'm down to four more weeks! Then we're off for some more fun! Cali with my fam and Bear Lake with Dericks! So look forward to more posts soon!

Mother's Day Quilt

So for Mother's Day I decided to make my mom a quilt. Now if you know anything about my mom, you know that 1. she's always cold  2. she likes to nap  and 3. she loves her family! So I decided to make a small quilt so she can take it with her in the car or she could just use it to take nap with. I also thought it would be cute to put some baby pictures of my brother, sisters, and I on it. It turned out pretty cute for only my second quilt. Don't ya think??

Arizona Trip

Ok ok! I know it's been a long time since I last posted but in all honesty LOTS have been going on this last month. So beware of the blog overload!! First off I had a blast down in Arizona with Terra, Josh, and little Dakota. I was scared at first that Dakota wouldn't recognize or like me since he was still really little the last time he saw me. But he and I got along great!  He is such a cute little guy with a fun personality! I had a blast helping Terra with his 1st birthday party! And the cake turned out so cute! He got tons of presents and even a slide from Grandma and Grandpa!

Our cute crocodile cake!

While in Arizona Josh was nice enough to take my parents and I down to Sedona. It was really pretty there. Reminded me a lot of St. George with all the red rock. We walked around all the fun shops and ate some yummy ice cream. All in all it was a fun trip. It always sucks when you have to leave family, especially when you have to get back to work!
