Seven Peaks

Gary and I wanted to do something fun before school started and before our Saturdays turned into worshiping BYU football. I had never been to seven peaks and thought it would be a lot of fun. It was but I didn't care for the wedgy I had to pick after every slide. However, it was nice to get out of the apartment and do something random. Gary and I were very ambitious and got there right when it opened so we hit all the best slides in like an hour. We also got a spot right under the shade to relax or burning feet and to avoid the sun.
Gary was especially pleased with our decision of seven peaks because they had dip n dots... we splurged and gave into the small tiny cup with the big price sticker on it. That's how our day ended so we considered it a success.
Side Note: Gary is amazing
Our kitchen floor in our apartment was gross but with a full time job I never got around to actually scrubbing the floor and I don't think the past residents did either because as you can tell... bleach and some good old elbow grease can make all the difference. Gary knew it had been bugging me so this past week he did it all by himself. What a guy!

The Fourth of July in St.George

The fourth this year was packed full of activites and great food. We traveled down to good ol' St.George to see my family and to endure the blasting heat. We had a great time. We swam in my parent's pool but it was more like taking a bath. Gary never had to worry about freezing me out... even when it was time sleep! Gary has been craving dip n' dots since forever and they didn't have them at Disney world where we went for our honeymoon. So at the Road Runners baseball game he had two servings to make up for it.
This is the night of the fourth and it was hot! We went to a country music show down... Gary was a really good sport(he hates it). The singers weren't bad it just was a long night... and all really wanted to see was fireworks.

Bethany and I enjoyed blueberry slushies while we were waiting for the show to start. This girl has such a personality.

So the fireworks were too much for Bethany, she is scared to death of them! She kept pleading with us all to leave. To a point I don't blame her. The people lit the fireworks too close to where everyone was standing so ashes were landing on us. I was scared just to look up at them afraid something was going to fall in my eyes! Gary wasn't impressed and still thinks Brigham City is where it is at.

Gary loves kitties and my family just got one. I think he spent more time with the kity than me the whole trip. He loved to cuddle and play with her. The kity has loads of energy so we were all surprised when Gary got the cat to fall a sleep with him.

Part One of My Favorites

This picture I have to take all the credit for. My photographer wasn't going to do one like this with the veil over both of us... but I insisted. It's just a classic, tradional photo but so sentimental.
I LOVE THIS ONE. I told Gary it looks like we are walking down Eternity Drive.

This picture blows my breath away. I don't know how my photographer did it. She made such an ugly, muddy river look beautiful and the wind helped a lot.

So I saw a picture like this one in a bride magazine but they were seductive. We tried to copy that but as you can tell we didn't really pull it off. Asking Gary and I to be seductive is like asking an elephant to fly... we kept kissing each others teeth because we couldn't stop smiling.

Katie, Teri, and Tessa have been my best friends forever and I was so lucky to have them all make it to my reception. They are all sarcastic and have a great sense of humor... and they just get life. I miss our cherry limeade runs to Sonic. $1.39

Wedding Photos Finally!

Gary and I finally got our wedding photos and I am really excited to share them! There will be many wedding photo posts because they are too many good ones just to have one post! Will start it off with a bang with probably my most favorite photo. The weather was beautiful the night before we got married so we took all of our pictues then. It was a blessing because the next morning was a beast to put it lightly :) Enjoy!
