The Hipper Zipper

I've been suffering from terrible depression I hate being back in school. We had so much fun during spring break now it's back to being stressed and tired. My sister in law cheered me up by bringing me this wicked sweet zipper bag from New York. It's a crazy long zipper and you just keep zipping and zipping and walah it's a bag.

Park City Day 4

We had to leave today it was very very sad. We woke up in the morning and there was a ton of snow outside. What is the weather thinking seriously. On our travels home we stopped at IKEA fun as usual. Then we went to the SLC temple and did a session. Brett and I hadn't been back to that temple since we were married so it was kind of cool. We were asked to be the witness couple too which is still a little nerve racking to me. We hit Panda Express and then our vacation was officially over. The roads between SLC and home were horrible.  I'm one to freak out about bad roads and sure enough I did. I was so tense the entire way home that my jaw was killing me. To calm my fears I just kept thinking we just went to the temple so we are good lol!  So now it's back to cleaning the apartment, homework, school, and work. It's very depressing but I just keep thinking summer will be here soon. 

Tubing

Yesterday we went to Gorgoza Park and it was amazing. It's a tubing hill that has 7 different lanes and the best part is you just sit in your tube and this thing pulls you up to the top. The first time we went down it was so hilarious I seriously about peed my pants.  The four of us linked together in a group so we could all see each other. We really weren't expecting to go that fast but it was so crazy fast we all thought we would die. The look on everyones faces and the screams were priceless. Watch the video and you will get an idea haha! It was such a blast! 





In the morning the boys made amy and I play boxing. They thought it was the funniest thing ever.

Olympics . Shoes . Craters

We were very busy yesterday but had a lot of fun. In the morning we went to the Olympic park where all the ski jump, freestyle and bobsled stuff took place. They have a museum there one part is just snow stuff and games you can play and then the other part is the olympic stuff. We had fun and it was free you can't complain about that. Then we went shopping to the outlet mall and got some great deals. Then we came back ate a late lunch and then Brett and I went to the crater to swim. It was the craziest thing ever. It's this crater that is heated by thermal activity and there are so many minerals in the water that the steam has created a dome over the crater. It was all inclosed except for a small hole in the top. The water was a good temperature it was like bath water you didn't get too hot but didn't freeze either. We had a lot of fun just relaxing.

I know this looks super real. I bet you thought we were really there. 
The Avalanche Zone 

Kade is hard core
I would hate to go down the track in this is wasn't very comfortable
This shoe was a size 21 crazy!! It is almost as big as Amy 
Kade and Brett got matching shoes/slippers and white legs :)
The Crater 
We had to wear these life jackets they were hot

Family Ties

On Sunday we went to the my cousin Jessica's House. She is three years older than me but growing up we were always partners in crime (literally). It has been hard not seeing each other very often with our busy lives, so every month from now on were going to get together. I'm very excited about that. We ate dinner which was delicious and then we played a game hand and foot (I think that is what it is called). It was a fun game and for the record Jessica and I beat the boys. 

When you take a 4 hour nap on sunday and then leave the blinds closed it can be surprising when you look outside. We had no idea it snowed 6ft. it was kind of funny. Brett looks a little disgusted with the situation. 
Parker and Cooper. They are the cutest kids. We had a lot of fun playing with them. Parker had this really cool race track. The boys had fun racing all the cars. 
Cooper!!! Brett and I got to fight over holding Cooper he is such a calm kid (Jessica might say otherwise) and just happy to have you hold him. 
Parker is a crack up. He is wild and crazy with  a lot of attitude. I told him to smile and that's what I got haha! 
Jessica and Preston thanks for having us over guys we had a lot of fun. Love YA!

Boise Part 2

Saturday morning we got up early to go shooting out in the desert. We kept driving and driving and driving I didn't think we were ever going to get there. Tyler, Amy's boyfriend, is an Idaho State Police Officer so he brought all of his fun toys along. I've never shot a real gun before only the stupid ones they have at the boys camps. It scared the crap out of me. I thought I would pee my pants. Brett was all about it he loves that stuff. I sat in the car most of the time because it was freezing and very windy. Although, the experience was worth being cold for a while. Everyone got a kick out of the fact I would scream each time I fired the gun. Watch the video you will get the idea lol! 

I felt so fierce with a gun it my hands. Loved it. I didn't like it for long though because of the fear of shooting my foot or something. 

This was one scary lookin gun. It's an assault riffle and I feel sorry for whoever it's pointing at. 


This was me in the car I was so freezing I had anything and everything on me. I tried to talk Tyler into letting me just shoot the gun from the car via the window. He didn't go for that can't imagine. 

Brett said it was almost better than Christmas!!! A boy with toys whatcha gonna do!

I'm smiling but really I'm terrified. 
This was the first time I shot the gun.

It was mine turn to shoot the riffle. Not as easy as it looks the thing is like 50 lbs.

Boise part 1

This last weekend we went Boise to play with Tyler and Amy. On Friday we went to a Steelheads Hockey Game. We were hoping to see a fight break out but no such luck. They played against Las Vegas and won Yeah!!! We absolutely love going to Boise. It's nice to have better entertainment options great shopping and food. 

This is a pee wee hockey team that came out in between one of the quarters. They were so little and cute. It was kind of funny to see them crashing and falling out there.

And the crowd goes wild!!! It was much better being there the noise level doesn't compare.
