Utah Trip Round 3

Jon's Grandma Wood passed away and we headed back over to Utah. She was an amazing lady and we were glad we could attend the funeral, it was also really nice to be with all of Jon's family.

Rock Climbing

 We took Brooklyn rock climbing for her first time, unfortunately we didn't get a picture of her on the wall, but she did get on... and I'm pretty sure she is not a fan of heights.

Copper Triangle Bike RIde

Some of my girlfriends and I signed up for this bike ride, which consisted of biking up 3 mountain passes and biking 80 miles. The highest pass topped out at 11, 318 feet. This was seriously the most fun bike ride I have ever been on, Jill and I stayed together most of the time and just had fun.

Jon's Bday Weekend The Big 30!

Turning 30 is a big deal around here.. Jon and I are some of the youngest of our friends so we get teased about our age, so this year was a big deal for Jon to hit 30!
For his Bday I put together a small surprise guys only poker night, I had yummy food for them, and hung all of the nice messages people sent about Jon on large poker cards along with pictures of Jon growing up, it was perfect. I did this two days before his Bday, then on his bday, Jon and I hiked up liberty cap and ran down, watched a movie and went to a yummy dinner and the farmers market. The best surprise however was yet to come, on Friday morning I drove down to the Moab exit to pick up Brother Dave.. Imaging Jon's excitement when Dave waltzed into our bedroom around 730 am.. so super fun and a great way to top off Jon's Bday. The two boys went hiking and shooting, and ate yummy food while Dave was in town! I think it's safe to say that this was the best Birthday Ever!


On the 24th of July Weekend we went camping with friends to Ridgeway. We had a great time hiking and boating, and playing on the beach they have there.

The Crazy Hair

I obviously let Easton's hair get too long.. check it out!

Holy Cross and Kids Hike Adventure

Jon took a weekend to hike the 14er Holy Cross with some guys, it took them most of the day, but they made it!
I don't know what my girlfriend and I were thinking but sense our husbands were hiking together we took our kids on a hike.. it was way to hot.. our kids are too little for long hikes, but it was and adventure. Brooklyn would run to all the small shady spots and rest, kind of funny. Side note.. what was I thinking letting Brooklyn hike all the way to the top of that hill for me to stay on bottom and take a picture.. Jon must be rubbing off on me. Also Easton was strapped to my back so no photo of him.. poor kid!

River Rafting

We went with a group of friends river rafting, it was really fun for about 30 minutes and then just slower moving until the end, however still a great day spent out on the water. No cameras were allowed so here is our before picture.

Happy Bday to Me!

For my Birthday this year we headed to Utah to celebrate with family.
We ate food at the greatest looking hole in the wall Thai restaurant which I have to admit I was a bit nervous about, we played in the Pool, Hiked doughnut falls, went to the splash pad, and hung out.. Here is to a great 32!
