lake powell

last week i went to lake powell with my sister shea, her husband ian, and their girls, london and rheagan. baby scarlett got to stay home with nana and bumpa because she is too little. we also went with some family friends--the halls, two sets of halls actually, the tom and kristy hall family and john and laura hall. we had so much fun! i had never been to lake powell before and had always wanted to go. shea and i had a goal to become bronze goddesses, and i'm not gonna lie but we kind of achieved it. i would put a picture of our faces up, but we vowed not to share any pictures of each other from the trip with the internet world. so we'll just have to settle with this awkward one of my tan lines.

here's some preciousness...
i love my babies so much. have you ever seen cuter kids? i miss my family!

stacy jean

last week my best friend stacy came for a little visit. we had a grand time playing around in provo. we watched movies, went shopping in salt lake, floated the provo river, had a picnic, went to the pool, played heartthrob, ate costa vida too many times, went to tucano's, ate shaved ice, the list goes on. and p.s., who knew that the provo river was so treacherous? we definitely did not. my roommate lindsey came with us and we almost died about 15 times. we all lost our sunglasses, lindsey lost her bandanna, and stacy and i both lost one of our flip flops. i can't even count how many trees and rocks we ran into, it was quite the adventure. it was not at all like the lazy river we pictured it being. when we got home and told sarah about our experience she said that she knew it was dangerous because her friend's mom almost died there, would have been nice to know ahead of time.

on sunday night we went up to the parking lot by the y as the sun was setting. who knew provo could be so pretty? we had a lot of fun together and since we haven't seen each other in almost a year, it was a sweet reunion.

4th of july festivities slash trip home to colorado

this weekend i decided to drive home to colorado and celebrate our nation's independence with my family. i met my parents and brother in breckenridge and we had a grand old time.

nash usually doesn't look so creepy...

these two are becoming the same person.

guess i was the only one that got the memo on making a stupid face. we got a little bored waiting for the fireworks to start.

on saturday i got to hang out with my sister shea's family. we ate dippin dots, watched a movie, and played rock band...three ingredients for a perfect evening.

but alas, i had to drive back to utah today (alone, for 7 glorious hours). this is a picture by a rest area in glenwood canyon, the most aesthetically pleasing part of the drive.
