Two Fabulous Years!

Yesterday Ryan took me on a date to celebrate being together for two years! We went to Prairie Schooner and then to the movies. I drug Ryan to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants: 2. He didn't even complain. We had a a lot of fun. I'm so thankful to have him in my life. I can't imagine what I would do without him. Since we started dating my life has really taken off and I am totally content. He is always making me laugh and he supports me in everything. We knew each other all through junior high and high school. I had a huge crush on him! Then two years ago we ran into each other at the Weber County Fair. We kissed that night, and just for the record he kissed me!

Fading Summer!

It has been a really fun last couple of weeks. My family took a trip to Lava Hot Springs. We had quite a good time. Lacy wasn't able to come because Dave crashed on his dirt bike. He ended up with three broken ribs and a punctured lung. He is healing up ok. Cassie also wasn't able to come because she had stitches on her forehead and wussed out. We had a lot of fun without them, but would have enjoyed their company.
We went to the pool and they had a pretty neat climbing wall that we all enjoyed. Then we floated down the river three times and let me tell you that was one too many. The first to runs down the river were really fun and mostly uneventful. The third run down the river was a different story. I cut my leg open getting into the water. Dakota scraped his back against some rocks and had a nice battle wound. And last but not least, my dad got stuck in a counter current and some how his tube flipped. He ended up slamming his head against a rock and was bleeding in three different places. OUCH!
When we got home we joined Ryan's family at the Pioneer Days Rodeo. It is a tradition for his family to go on family night ever year. We had a really good time. Ryan's nephew participated in the MUTTON BUSTIN', and although he didn't make it all eight second when he was finished he stood up and waved to the crowd. It was adorable.
On the 24th we went to Stone Idaho where Ryan team roped. When they signed up they were told that they would be in the slack, and that the slack would be after the rodeo. When we got there at about six o'clock they had already run the slack. The boys were pretty bumbed out, but fortunately since it was the secretaries fault they let them rope in the performance. They had a good run, but weren't fast enough to win any money.

I can't believe it is already August. After the Weber County Fair summer is pretty much over. The days are beginning to get shorter and the summer is fading away. So here's to the rest of the summer.
