Escaping the Heat

This past weekend, we went camping with Chase's family again!

His family has been all about the summer getaways and camp-outs lately and since Chase and I don't have many obligations we decided to go on this one last trip before I started work...
and BOY did it feel good to get out of the heat!

We stayed up at Canyon Point Campground at the top of the rim (they were CRAZY strict there though... that's a whole other story in itself!) but we had a great campsite and the weather was refreshing :)

And we even went to church up in Heber.... nothing like being in your Sunday best in the wilderness :)

It's been a GREAT summer and it was a fun last trip before going back to reality!

New Job

So... I was just offered a GREAT new job!

You're lookin' at the newest Nutritionist at Mountain Park Health Center.

I'll be working for the WIC program, giving nutritional counseling to pregnant and breast feeding women, as well as infants and children :)

Super excited.

Can't wait!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ICE CREAM!

Chase and I kinda sorta have a sweet tooth... for McDonald's ice cream cones.
Whenever we are craving a little dessert, or in summer's case... a way to cool down,
we get a cone because they are delicious, cheap ($1!), and not too bad for you (150 cal w/ 3g fat) :)

Well the other night we were on our way home and stopped to get cones.
To our surpise the guy gave us the BIGGEST cones we have ever had (and we've had alot)

I'd say they were about the size of a water bottle.
So... they probably had a lot more than 3g of fat... but boy, was it worth it :)

My grandma is one of the most AMAZING women that I know.

She is kind, thoughtful, giving, selfless, the world's greatest cook, and the most loving person you will ever meet.

And you'd never guess by the looks of it... but she just turned 75!
(I mean... 55...)

We made her wear a princess crown...
And be the first to have a go at her piñata...
Don't worry... I had my fair share of the piñata as well :)

Happy birthday Grandma!
Thank you for all you've done and still do for me,
you are the best grandma in the world and I love you!

Let Freedom Ring!

This fourth of July weekend we had a fun little family BBQ at the Woodburys
(even though they were in Utah!... sorry guys, we missed you!)

The kids (us, Chase's siblings, and neice and nephews) had a great time celebrating, BBQing, swimming, and making some homemade ice cream (YUM)

This is the only picture I took the whole day though... but it pretty much takes the cake.
She is just too darn cute for words.

I didn't get a picture of the cute nephews in their matching shirts, so here is one that Brittney took of them earlier in the day :)
Love them! Can you tell?

Happy Fourth of July!
