School's Out for Summer!!!

Finally it's over!!! The semester is finally over and I don't know what to do with myself for the next couple of days. This 2 month break begins some adventures for Andrew and me. Andrew's younger brother, Phil, is coming to visit us the first week in August, and then after that we are out of this little town of Rexburg for a while. We will go down to Vegas and hang out with my family for a bit and fix up my parent's truck...if anyone wants a pick-up, let me know! (98 GMC Sonoma) We will then drive up to Oregon to visit Andrew's family, who we haven't seen since our wedding over a year ago. It will be lots of fun and I promise to take my camera and take pictures!!!

For now, I better figure out something to occupy my time!

Ward Campout

Our ward had a campout Friday night and it was lots of fun! They feed us a tasty dutch-oven dinner, complete with a variety of cobblers. There was also a fireside speaker that talked about the Holy Ghost and asking our Father in Heaven for help. I don't remember everything he said, but it was very uplifting. Then there was a bluegrass band that played for us. One of the counselors in the bishopric was in the band. It was pretty awesome. We then stayed up until midnight playing card games with our new friends in the ward. In the morning, breakfast was provided as well, which consisted of pancakes, hashbrowns, and bacon. It was pretty tasty! It was a quick camping trip, but it was lots of fun to get out of our apartment and get to know some new people. (Once again, I took my camera but did not get any pictures! Sorry!!!)

4th of July

So I haven't posted for a while, but that's because nothing very exciting happened during the month of June! Just classes, tests, and work. But, this last weekend definately made up for the boring month!
Let's actually start with June 27th:
Andrew and I drove down to Logan, UT for my sister's wedding reception (the wedding was back in May). We got to see 2 of my brothers and my sister and all of their families. My mom was there as well. It was lots of fun to spend the afternoon with my family!

Then on Wednesday, we drove up to Island Park (about an hour north of Rexburg) and stayed in a cabin with my sister, Deanne, and her family. (Her kids are the two Andrew is coloring with in the previous post).
We had no school on Thursday, so we babysat Spencer and Hannah and Eliza (Deanne's kids) while they went to do a session in the Rexburg temple. They had never been and they went with Chris' family (Chris is Deanne's husband). We took the kids to the park and it was lots of fun.
Friday was not very was our day to study so that we could play all day on Saturday.
So Saturday we watched the parade here in Rexburg and both got a little sunburnt! Then we met up with Deanne and her family at Porter Park and let the kids play in the splash park there. We also got to ride on the merry-go-round! They were a lot better then the last time I took them, which was over a year ago. Then in the evening, we drove down to Idaho Falls to watch the fireworks. We hung out with our friends (my old roommates & their husbands) for about 4 hours before the show started.

Needless to say, this past weekend really did make up for the uneventful month of June! This whole month is going to be a good one because we only have 3 weeks left of school, and then a 7 week break before we start our last semester! During that 7 week break, we will be taking some trips to see both of our families. I am very excited!
