This weekend Scott and I went up to Grand Targhee for the weekend! We left Thursday night and went to Rexburg and stayed with my friend Hannah! We headed to Targhee the next day and snowboarded the whole day! The first run we did Scott and I lost each other so we spent the next 2 hours trying to find each other. Once we were reunited we started to have some fun! We were pretty exhausted at the end of the day, then we checked into our room. Our room was right outside the ski resort, so when we opened our front door the ski lifts were right there! The next day we snowboarded all day, then went down to Jackson and walked around then had dinner. It was a very nice and relaxing weekend, even though we are a bit sore! Snowboarding sure does take a lot out of ya!

2 years already?!

Well Scott and I have been married for 2 years today! I can't believe it's been 2 years already... time sure does go by fast! Here are some pictures of our wedding day 2 years ago!!!!


Trinity Mountain Look Out.

This weekend we went to the cabin.... again. Scott really wanted to go up to the Trinity's for quite sometime and we finally went. It took us 2 hours to get there on 4-wheelers and we ate lunch by one of the Trinity lakes and then went up to the Trinity Mountain look out. Once we got up there it felt like we could see the world and it was very pretty and a bit windy. There was an old little house up there on the very tip with cliffs on all sides of it, I don't think I would like to stay there it's for the forest people to stay up there and watch for fires. It was awesome up there!

The Trinity look out. Where we went.
Prairie, where we started.
Trinity Mountain Look out rock, 9,500 feet.

Some lakes and bunch more mountains we think that one of the furthest mountains is Mt. Borah, the tallest mountain in Idaho.
Some dead, cool looking trees.

Turtle, Turtle!

Yesterday my grandpa was sitting on the porch reading the newspaper, he looked up from his newspaper and saw a surprise in the driveway! My grandma called me and told me to look out the window and it was a . . . . . . . . TURTLE! She's so totally awesome! It's a desert tortoise, like the ones at the zoo! She's not quite that big yet. I guess she has like 85 years to grow that big so we'll see. Oh ya . . . . . and we named her Susan!



So Scott and I have the entire box set of "Friends." On our spare time (which we have a lot of) we watch Friends. I figure we have watched every episode at least 8 times (I know.... it's kinda sad). We are always quoting them, so if we crack a joke that you don't get it's probably from Friends. Here is our favorite scene from Friends.

An Episode of Friends. Ross and Rachel locks themselves out of the apartment while the baby is inside asleep.

Ross:  The super isn't home but my mother is going to be here in a minute and she has the key.

Rachel: I can't...I can't wait that long. You have to do something....Knock that door down!

Ross: I would but I bruise like a peach. Besides everything is going to be ok the baby is sleeping.

Rachel: What if she jumps out of the basinet!

Ross: Can't hold her own head up but ya...Jumped!

Rachel: Oh my god I left the water running

Ross; Rach you did not leave the water running, please just pull yourself together ok.

Rachel: Did I leave the oven on?

Ross: You haven't cooked since 1996!

Rachel: Is the window open because a bird could fly in there!

Ross: Oh my god I think you're right, wait listen listen..... a pigeon oh wait, wait! An Eagle flew in, landed on the stove and caught fire! The baby seeing this, jumps across the apartment to the mighty bird's aid, the eagle however, misconstrues this as an act of aggression and grabs the baby in it's talons. Meanwhile the faucet fills the apartment with water. Baby and bird still ablaze, are locked in a death grip swirling around the whirl pool that fills the apartment.

Rachel: Boy are you gunna be sorry if that's true!



This past week we went to Portland and had lots of fun! I wish I would have taken more pictures than what I did but I guess it's alright. We went to Portland for a family reunion with Scott's family! I really haven't met any of his family so we decided this would be the perfect time to do so! We went to Multinoma Falls just outside of Portland. It was so stinkin hot but we hiked to the top of the waterfall! It was very pretty and worth it in the end, I seriously thought I was going to die for a while! We went to the Oregon zoo, it was a pretty good zoo! It was a bit too hot for the zoo, but it was fun. On Saturday we had family pictures with Scott's dad's family then we went to the family reunion and had lots of fun! By Sunday we were totally exhausted and it was time to roll on home. 

Mount Hood!

Waterfall! We hiked all the way up there!

At the top of the waterfall! We made it!
At the bottom!

We wanted to take a picture with the whole waterfall in it. Scott's dad is laying on the ground in the middle of like 50 people, but we got the whole thing in the picture!
Scott's mom sister and dad. And there is some guy in the background spitting over the edge!

Here is the elephant at the zoo, he had a beard! He is 50 years old! He has been there ever since Scott's dad has been going to that zoo!


4th of July!

This past week sure has been busy! We moved on Thursday and luckily I conveniently had to work, so all the moving of the big stuff was done by the time I was done working! We sure are hoping that we're done moving for a while, it's getting a little old packing every 6 months. Our house was finally put all together by Friday just in time for the 4th of July festivities!!! We went over to my Aunt Shannon's for a pre 4th of July party. We ate lots of good food and did our own fireworks. We would do our fireworks on the 4th of July but my uncle is the guy who does the city fireworks so he is a little busy that night. Saturday we went to dinner at Tucano's Brazilian Grill with some friends. It was awesome! Then we went back and watched the fireworks in Mtn. Home and it was a great show! 

I had to put this picture up! This is my aunt's new little dog! She is so darn cute! I think Scott thinks so too!
I'm a little skiddish when it comes to sparklers, they scare me just a bit. So I decided to hold one and we had to get a picture!
My mom thought it would be fun to get matching shirts this year! I thought it was awesome, everyone else didn't like it though! So to make things worse I'm going to get us all shirts next year to form a flag. 2 people will be the starts of the flag and the rest are going to be stripes and when we stand together we will be a flag!



These last 3 days sure have been busy! Softball tournaments were in Kuna, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday! Our team has been undefeated all year and we were the team to beat. Thursday we played 1 game and we won, Friday we played 2 games and won both of those games, then Saturday we played ended up playing our 1st game at 9:00 am and LOST by 1! So we ended up playing another team at 11:00 and WON! So we had to play the team we lost to again and we beat them, so we had to play them again because they haven't lost yet (double elimination) and we WON! We are the first Mtn.Home Sting team to ever win the Championship! It was so much fun! OUR TEAM ROCKS!!!!!

Us coaches! We were the only team with all women coaches... and we WON!

We are #1! Our Amazing team!

When I got home the weather decided to go crazy and it started hailing and pouring rain! 

I think there is a bit of a flood going on here!

It was like this all over town!



So a couple days ago I decided to cook some chicken at around 9:30 p.m. for Scott's lunch the next day. So I go to the freezer and open up a brand new bag of chicken breasts. I take out 2 pieces of chicken and throw them in the oven. When I go to put the bag of chicken back in the freezer I take a quick gander back into the bag and to my surprise, Wal*Mart decided to leave me a prize inside the bag!!!!!!!

I called Scott into the kitchen and his exact words were,"Huh... what the hell is that."I took it to Wal*Mart to show them what I won!!! They were a little baffled and told me they have never seen anything like that before! I guess I won in 2 different ways, first, finding this object frozen to a piece of chicken, and second, being the first person in Mtn.Home Wal*Mart history to find the weirdest object in their bag of chicken! YAY for me!!!!!



We went to Utah this weekend. Allie had clogging Nationals at Lagoon and we had LOTS of fun! Friday we watched her do her solos then went to Red Lobster(I absolutely hate sea food, so that was interesting). Saturday we watched Allie clog throughout the day and rode rides when she wasn't clogging. It couldn't have been a better day to be at Lagoon, not too hot and not too cold...Just right! After Lagoon we went to my Aunt and Uncles and had a BBQ. My little cousin loves Scott, it's so funny! When we first got there Lyle(my cousin) told his mom he wanted to play with his toy train with Scott and...... her(pointing to me). He doesn't even know my name but he sure knows Scott's! He wouldn't let anyone poor his milk in the morning except for Scott, it was pretty darn funny! On Sunday we went and watched the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing!Scott and me at Red Lobster

My dad, Haydon, and mom getting ready to ride the rocket!

Scott and me gettin' ready to take off!

The cutest little baby geese!

Scott and Lyle. He didn't leave Scott's side the entire time we were there. Lyle broke his elbow on the slide, so he has a pretty sweet cast on.

The Tabernacle Choir singing! 

Us in front of the Salt Lake Temple.


Our team is DYNAMITE!

Softball time is here again and I LOVE IT! I wasn't planning on coaching this year, but one thing led to another and well..... the picture explains itself! Ali and I have been friends for forever, we grew up playing softball together , so how could I pass up the chance to coach with her?! We have a pretty good little team!!! So far we are undefeated and we plan to stay that way! Every one keeps telling us winning doesn't matter, but we are having a hard time remembering that. We aren't competitive at all!!! 

Ali and I coaching!!! Those shirts sure are yellow aren't they?!?! We definitely won't get lost in a crowd!


What a BEAUTIFUL day!

Today was such a beautiful day! No wind and no cold! Shoshone falls is flowing and we thought it would be a great day to go down there, however, so did the rest of Idaho! We got to Twin Falls and headed toward Shoshone Falls, the traffic was backed up 6 miles back!!!!! We drove the first 4 miles and decided the traffic was a little bit ridiculous, so we parked in a parking lot and walked the other 2 miles. Since it was the perfect weather, it was actually a pretty enjoyable walk. We passed at least 200 cars on foot, we decided we probably made the right decision by walking! We finally got down to the falls a little sun burned, but it was totally worth it! 

Me, my mom, and Allie are in the sunglasses!

Scott is giving his sexiest look! HA!
