Some Long Due Pictures!


T.J. with Kellen! We went up to Sandy to play with Lance and Christa and Karen and Austin...and kids in September. We played at the park and just had so much fun!










It was Addison and Alexa's birthday too!













T.J. and I at the BYU v. UCLA game! Go COUGARS!!!















Here are some pictures from our summer adventures! Well, this first one is actually just last week at our friend Collins' wedding! Look at ME! Sans braces!!! haha Yay!

This is a small smackerel of photos, but maybe it will give you a teensy idea of what we have been up to. :)












T.J.'s family came to visit us in California in August. We had a blast! Well, mostly I had a blast with them and T.J. worked. But, we did go glow-in-the-dark mini golfing at midnight and T.J. and Steve got to come along! This is the boys team...The girls team totally slaughtered them!...okay, not so much, but it was fun!














These are my cute sisters in law, Kylie and Darby! We are just chillin at the A's game. No worries, this game went for 12 innings! We caught all the action...including a seemingly naked woman. It was interesting...














Kylie and I at the Giants game!















Here we are after the first ride of the day at Six Flags. That's right, get on, get SOAKED, get off!















This is me with my sister Karen and her friends at the beginning of the RAGNAR Wasatch Back Relay. We ran three legs each for a total of 180 miles or something crazy like that. It was so very much fun! yes, that IS a running woman manaquin on the top of the car. BABEFEST '08!














Here I am with my Mom in law and Aunts from T.J.'s side of the family after climbing a mountain! Krystle and I got to go to T.J. and Steve's family reunion at Snowbird in July for a week. It was fun fun fun!














In August my Mom came to visit for a few days too! Yay! We had lots of fun! This was after we biked...I think 8 miles over the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. My Mom was so awesome on the bike...You should all be impressed. Here we are being wind blown on a ferry.















In June T.J. and I went to my family reunion at Bear Lake! This is T.J. with my nephew Ryan before going into Minnetonka Cave















This one is of Krystle, Steve, T.J. and I after eating out during the summer! (thanks APX!)

For your viewing pleasure...my funny husband and his brother! Sorry it is sideways! Apparently I didn't get the memo that you can't video with the camera sideways.... :)

okay okay!!!

So, it's official! I am BRUTAL at this blogging thing! However, I am resolving to do a little more, be a little better (follow the prophet!).

Well, the summer came to end, as all things do, and that was happy! It was a good summer...full of learning! T.J. worked hard and did well, and is excited to never have to knock another door! I had a hard time coping with the excess time at my disposal, but am now wishing life was so hard! I spend a lot of time reading, getting tan, working on scrapbooks, cooking, and hanging out with Krystle. It was a fun fun summer for me! T.J. just mostly worked...poor boy! I am not going to tell you all about the summer's adventures because...I don't have time! :)

So, now here we are! Back in school! Hoooorah! T.J. is super loaded with science classes and working like a champ. He is also a lab assistant in a chemistry lab and exceeding his professor's expectations! I am busy with research and reading mostly. My professors are amazing - especially my advisor! - and I am learning a ton. I really love grad school. I never ever planned on it, but I am finding it to be really fun and really practical.

Well, I just realized this would be way more fun with photos! So, I will come back later with some of those and it will be fun times for all! That's all for now friends. :)
