Look How Cool We Are...

Everyone always claims that they have the best friends but I really do! I was talking with my mom the other day about how unique my group of friends are. With the exception of a new roommate that hit it off, I have officially not made a new girlfriend since 9th grade. A group of 9 of us have been friends since High School, we stay extremely close even while living in other cities, states, and even continents. We have now been graduated from high school for 4 years and continue to be very close friends. I love that we can not talk for a few weeks and pick up the phone like nothing has happened. You can always count on that whatever the circumstances we make it to the wedding/shower/baby shower. We have forced our husbands/boyfriends/fiances to become friends or at least tolerate each other because no matter what we are staying friends. My friends are completely drama free, if we have a fight or someone is being rude we just don't talk for a few days and we are over it. Nothing ever escalated or caused a lot of work. Our friendships are easy. We have to work to keep in contact but the relationships take no effort. Random texts, facebook comments, surprise lunches, phone calls just because, laughing and mocking to keep from crying, and lots of food are the keystones to our unique web of friendships. I hope we keep up this beautiful friendships through the rest of the weddings, babies, divorces, deaths, graduations, job changes, moves, and anything else life throws at us. I love you all so much, So Sarah, Kaylee, Danielle, Morgan, Heather, Cami, Kamrie, and Kenna thank you for being the best friends ever!!

Summer Life...

It has been about a month since USU Graduation so I figure I'm doing well with blogging. We have been having a blast this summer. Travis is still working in Salt Lake at IHC, he does not love the commute but he does love the job. For my job...well I'm pretty much just labor. I watch my sisters kids once a week and then do pretty much whatever needs to be done on the farm/yard. Now that the weather has finally warmed up and the snow has melted in some places I have started riding our mules/horses to get them in shape. We just got back from a week long vacation with my family up to our barn in Bondurant, Wy. We scheduled this about 6 months ago and declared it a kids free week. If you don't know my family then our type of vacation may confuse you... Over the week we whitewater 8 miles down the river, rode bikes 50 miles, ran up a mountain 3 times covering 16 miles and 2,000 feet in elevation, had a feats of strength on a homemade teeter totter testing our abs ability, and golfed 36 holes of golf. Between these events of physical endurance we attended Bar J wranglers, drove through Yellowstone in a 16 passenger van (you know for more family togetherness), stopped at old faithful to see many bubbling mud holes, shopped and gallery hopped, and ate a lot of great food. We enjoy every action packed minute of our vacations and this one was no different! I'm sad I don't have any pictures of our Indian runs up the mountains because we saw some beautiful country. Thanks to my mom and dad for such a perfect week. We look forward to a whole week with Travis's family in St. George for lots of golf and lots of pool time!
