Favorite time of the Year!

Nate and I have been saying lately how this is just the best time of the year. The days are long, the weather is nice, the earth is green and beautiful, you can get out and play outdoors, bbq's, and the list goes on. We are lucky to live here in Utah where we have such beautiful springs and summers! Even if they are kind of rainy! We have been having a blast living here in Logan, and trying to pack our summer with adventures!
Almost every weekend so far has been filled with adventure. The last week of May we got to go down to Salt Lake for a family trip of sorts when Clark, Kara, and Gracie came into town! It was fun to relax, and play with them. It was the first time since last year at our wedding my whole family was together! We love to be together and have fun!
The next weekend I got a Friday off, so we decided to take off to St. George, you know before it got too hot down there! Ashley and Josh came with us, and it was just a great time.  Nate and I love to go down and play sports and enjoy the good weather, so with the perfect 85 degree temps we packed it in with tennis, basketball, swimming, reading, temple, eating good food! Josh and Nate even taught Ashley and I how to golf! After a couple of lost balls in the lake and rocks, we were able to get our balls onto the green and eventually into the hole! It was fun to learn! FUN times in the Gorge.

Happy Anniversary... to US!!!

May 20, 2009... does any one remember it? We do! It was when we got married! We can't believe that it has already been over a year. We have had such a great first year being newlyweds. It is so fun to be with your best friend always.  I feel so lucky to have such a great husband. Nate is exemplary in so many ways.  He has really made me feel special and loved this last year. We have really had to rely on each other for help, love, and support. It is a great blessing to be married.
Everyone knows that Nate and I love a good adventure, so partly for our anniversary and Nate's graduation we took off to Jackson for the weekend. We played platform tennis (good for a laugh), walked around the shops, ate yummy food, hiked in the beautiful Tetons, and played games. It was a great trip!

We Look Forward to many Anniversarys in the Future!
