summer classroom

I looked in my classroom and what did I see?
Bugs all over the window sill and counter tops.
(They look like flying black ants. Gross!)
This happened last summer, but I forgot.
Somehow they get in my classroom.
Luckily the custodian sprayed them.
I just got to clean them up today.
Less than a month till school starts!

Father's Day

Father's day included the 3 C's....

-Church where there were almost as many members in the ward as visitors....
-Cooking lots of yummy food for our Father's day dinner. Bob loved the ribs.

-Competition, the boys loved playing shuffle board and Rook.
These are my favorite pictures of Bob. This is him to a T..... He is so competitive, especially with his family. They were trying to figure out if it was on the line or not....

Warren and Annabelle's

We went to Warren and Annabelle's with Levi and Heather one night. At first you go into a room where Annabelle who is a "ghost" plays the piano, and you sit and drink cocktails and eat appetizers for an hour before the show. Warren is the magician, and I just have to say that the show was AMAZING!!! The 2 hours flew by and we all sat in amazement as he did trick after trick. I will definitely be going again if I ever go to Maui again.

Bob and I listening to Annabelle play the piano.

Here is Warren as he burns one of the audience members $100 bill. He later cut a lemon and the bill was inside of it.... Crazy!

Glow in the dark mini golf

Heather, Levi, Bob, and I spent an afternoon together shopping, movie-ing, and golfing before we went to the Warren and Annabelle's Magic Show. We found this mini golf near the shops we were browsing.

It was fun to get a turn, since the boys definitely had their share of golfing during the trip. Although I lost, I had a great time. It was fun to watch Heather win both of the guys after she had 6+ hole in 1's.

Levi and I both got a hole in 1 at the end that gave us a coupon for a free scoop at Cold Stone. (This was our 2nd visit of the trip.)

*We had to go back only a few minutes after we left because Bob lost his wallet inside the course. Luckily there was only 1 other couple on the course and we found his wallet quickly.

My new hobby...

Since Emily's baby shower, I have been wanting to make more onesies. I finally got on a crafting kick and decided to get all of the stuff out. Using my cricut I cut out some different designs and in the last 24 hours I have stitched all 7. I am pretty sure that my middle finger has a huge blister. I love how they turned out. I'm excited to give these away as gifts.

3 years to go!

Last week Bob started his MBA program. He is loving his classes and his class has about 20 people in it so he loves the small group setting. In the fall he will start pharmacy classes and during summers he will work on his MBA. I am so proud of Bob and all of his hard work to get to where he is today. I just keep thinking, only 3 years to go..... I am sure it will go quickly.
* Bob on his first day of school. I love first day of school pictures.

4th of July Weekend

Over the weekend we had a lot of fun. This was our last weekend before Bob started his MBA/Pharmacy school.

We went and saw Eclipse. Our 2nd date was Twilight so it was only fitting that we went and saw Eclipse together.
I taught my first relief society lesson and after went to Matt and Emily's luncheon for baby Max's blessing.
I was hot and sweaty, and my bangs were having a lot of stress at this moment.
We had a BBQ with my family. My parents cooked a great meal with lots of ribs and bbq chicken. Everyone had PLENTY to eat!

Surfing in Hawaii was a lot of fun. There weren't a ton of waves, but we all caught enough to be tired after a couple hours. I'm glad that we were able to do it. It was fun to be out there with Bob and his brothers.

Bob and I out, waiting for a wave.
Bob catching a wave... way to go!
This would be me, and every picture that was taken of me, I am wiping my face.. oh wonderful.

Bob kindly pushing me in. By the end I was dead.
At the end of our surfing adventure.

pool, shoping, food

This was a relaxing day in Hawaii. We woke up and went to the pool, enjoying the sun, pool, and shuffleboard.Bob worked on his tan for maybe 3 minutes.... haha.

I'm sure we did some shopping somewhere during the day.

And out to dinner for burgers.Luckily my curly hair matched right up with my cut out.
After, we made our 3rd trip to coldstone.

Bob's favorite souvenir ...

The day before we were leaving Hawaii, we were making some last minute purchases and returns at the mall. Bob and I knew we were going to spend a whole day in the mall the next day waiting for our flight. We ran upstairs to the movie theater to see what movies we would be able to see. As we were walking back to our family, we saw this shirt in the window of the a store. Bob and both looked at each other knowing he had to have it. It was the quickest purchase we have ever made.
After the mall we went to a few different golf courses to golf. But we couldn't get a time, but we did get a couple good pictures. (Bob and I somehow ended up color coordinating, but not on purpose.)

Last Day in Hawaii...

Our last day in Hawaii was a long day. Bob's parents and brother had to be at the airport at 10:00 am and our flight wasn't until 9:00 pm. We said farewell at the airport, loaded all of our luggage into a taxi and spent the day at the nearby mall.

To help pass the time we saw 2 movies. The first was Knight and Day which we both loved.

Then we went to lunch. Luckily they had a spot for us to store all of our luggage, we looked pathetic hauling around 4 pieces of luggage throughout the mall.
Then we returned to the movie theater where we saw Jonah Hex, which was the worst movie ever. Bob fell asleep in the middle, and I had to wake him up so he would actually sleep on the plane that night.
Bob trying to take a nap in the airport while waiting....
Here I am reading my favorite thing to do to pass the time.
After spending the day in the mall, we returned to the airport to wait for a few more hours. We were so happy to get on the plane, even though we knew our Hawaiian vacation was coming to an end.

If I could, I would ride in a boat everyday. It is so relaxing. I love being surrounded by water and having the wind blow on my face. We were lucky to have really nice weather while we were boating and the water was really smooth.

Here's my Dad, our awesome captain.

Bob and I.

Brent and Andrea.

Punch a carp

Around the marina's you will find a lot of big, nasty carp. One day we pulled in and while waiting we were looking at the carp. Andrea's boyfriend Brent told my cousins about punching carp. So my cousin Nathaniel decided to give it a try. It was pretty funny.

Hole in the Rock

On our Sunday cruise up and down the Lake, we stopped at another place I don't recall ever seeing out of my 15+ years at Lake Powell. We went to the Hole in the Rock. When I heard Hole in the Rock, I thought a big rock with a hole in it, but I was wrong.

As you can see at the top, that is the whole, and where the pioneers came through. They lowered their wagons down. While sitting in our boat the water was 200+ feet deep. So they had a long way down to lower their wagons. I can't remember what my Dad said, but they were living someplace in Utah and decided to go start over in a new place in Utah. *When I get the real city names I'll uplift you with that information.

All I can say is, WOW! I knew the pioneers were amazing, but after seeing this in real life it made it even more real.

Rainbow Bridge

On Sunday we went for a long boat ride, and by long I mean 6 or 7 hours total. We left early packing lunches and drove over 50 miles to our destination. We stopped at a few different places on the way there and on the way back. (A lot of stops just to jump in and cool off, it was HOT!) Our main stop of the trip was to Rainbow Bridge. We parked the boat and walked 2/3rds of a mile. It had to be 100 degrees so most turned around before we got to the top. As long as Bob and I got a picture, we were fine to turn around.

Apparently it was the centennial of the monument. I figured I should take a picture. My sister Andrea went to the top and talked to the rangers. She learned some neat facts about how in the beginning 200 people would visit a year, and now over 200 people visit the monument each day. When we filled in the paper as visitors, there were 3 or 4 pages already filled in from the same day.

I can't remember what year they dammed the lake, but it took 17 years to fill up Lake Powell. How amazing, I am so glad someone thought of it. Lake Powell is like my second home.

Rainbow Bridge at it's best....
