One eventful week!

When I start to think about the past week my head starts to spin. It has been one thing after another. First on the list to report is the 24th of July. I love having another day to be patriotic! This year our stake did a float for the parade and I was asked to walk in it. We had the cutest float in town!

I survived the Saints to Sinners bike race with only a few hitches. My bike fell off the trailer and was dragged along the freeway for who knows how long. Luckily people came prepared and just happened to have an extra wheel and seat! Then I started my first leg only to get a flat tire. After that my luck changed and the rest of the rides were smooth sailing!

30 hours of biking/sleeping/talking/driving to get to Las Vegas only to have to get back in the car and turn around for a 7 hour drive back home. But it was all worth it. It was such a fun race to be apart of. Definitely one I would do again!

Tomorrow I am taking off for a 30 hour bike ride. It is exactly like Ragnar but instead of running I am biking. We start as saints in SLC and end as sinners in Las Vegas.

I am proud to be riding along our family friend Creighton Rider as we ride to support Lou Gehrig's disease.

I hope I make it back alive on Saturday night to blog about the adventure.

Wish me luck! I definitely need it.

Lake Powell Weekend

We finally made it to our favorite summer travel spot...Lake Powell. We went with our cousins and brought along a few friends. There was sunrise water skiing, surfing, airchairing, boat rides, afternoon and nightly storms, sun tans and of course the trick ski competition! 

It really is a magical place. Can't wait to be back in a month!

Happy Birthday America!

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. My mom is the most patriotic person I know and she has passed her love of America to us. This year the Fourth was spent at a patriotic breakfast, parade, BBQ, and firework show. I wish we were as patriotic every day as we are on Independence day!

Vote for Jim!

Such a patriotic group!

I am grateful for all the people that have fought and are still fighting for the freedom I am able to enjoy today. America is an amazing country! 

Happy Birthday America!
