Our Fun Week

On Thursday night we went over to the Ashby's house for dinner. It was kind of a special occassion because Joe and Amanda are in town with their 2 little boys from England. Chads parents BBQ'd the fish he brought back from Alaska and we had a really nice time catching up with each other.
On Friday I went with all of the employees of Provo College to Boondocks in Draper for an Eagle Gate corporate event. For the first 3 hours we had a huge meeting. Vickie and I were lucky enough to win All Star awards which we thought was pretty cool. After all of that we got to spend the rest of the time riding the bumper boats while totally soaking each other. The Go Carts were a blast and we kicked butt at the arcades. I love the people I work with and so any opportunity to get out of the office for fun with them is the best!

Last night Chad and I also got together with Chad and Kim, Brook and Kim, and Jenny and Jake. We met at Los Hermanos and spent 2 hours over dinner talking and laughing. Not everyone knew each other and everyone was really good sports at getting to know each other. We had a lot of fun and hopefully they all did too.

This afternoon I went with my favorite twins on a little hike/walk. We went to the trail by Bridal Veil Falls. We walked for well over an hour and it felt awesome to get out and get some sun and excercise. Cooper was a big hit too. Everyone had to stop and pet the puppy and ask me what kind of dog he was.

While I was doing this Chad headed to Strawberry to 4 wheel with his dad, Joe, and Todd. That's about his favorite thing to do, so I'm sure he'll come home happy.

Hi there! Katie gave me the heads up that you have a blog. It was really fun to see what you have been up to. It made me miss our Provo time a bit. It's crazy we are living in Florida now. I never thought that in a million years, but life is crazy and you never know what you will get. I hope that we will be able to keep in touch a bit better this way. I guess I can't be much worse..Right? You seem really happy and up to lots of adventure. Feel free to stop by our blog anytime! Love ya! It's been WAY too long!

Hi Elise - Can I just say that I LOVE blogs (even though I personally don't have one!!) It was so fun to see what you have been doing! Alaska looks like it was beautiful. I am looking forward to checking your blog and having a better idea of what's up with your family! We are heading to Florida next week to see Natalie and her family and Katie and her little guy are coming with us so it should be a crazy fun time!! Love ya!

Hey Elise!

Your Alaska photos were awesome - I'm jealous!

I made a post on my blog with links to blogs of several of our old co-workers from SARC. Check it out and let me know if you know where anyone else is. By the way, Melanie's sister Mindee works with my sister now, and Melanie is expecting ANOTHER girl! You may have already heard that, but I thought I'd pass it along.

We need to hike up Bridal Veil Falls. I don't think Stephen ever has. That would be a fun family activity, right? We of course wouldn't have a cute dog to show off, just obnoxious kids. I think I would switch for the dog. He is a cutie!
