Weber County Fair

We went to the fair last night and we had a blast. The fair was one of my favorite times of the year when I was younger and I still really love it! We arrived just a little too late to watch our family sell their pigs in the auction, but we still were able to see them after. Then we went to watch Brent Moyes in Fair Idol! Brent is married to my cousin Stacie, so we went to go vote for him and watch him sing! Brent has an amazing voice and it was so fun to watch him! You were awesome Brent! After that Andy and I decided to go to the petting zoo...... :) My Grandpa told us that we had to go because they had awesome animals there so we decided to give it a shot. We mostly had fun taking crazy random pictures, but it was still really fun

This animal is a water buffalo and it made me laugh because I didn't know there was such a thing. I had listened to the veggie tales "water buffalo" silly song before, but thought it was a made up animal, so knowing that such an animal really existed made my day... :) This link will take you to a youtube video of "water buffalo"

Finished for the Summer!!!

Andy and I both finished school this last week and it feels so great! Andy only has two more semesters and I am so proud of him. He is VERY smart and does a great job in all of his classes. However, after he graduates from the U he will be starting graduate school so we still have a ways to go. In the meantime we will be enjoying our 2 1/2 weeks off!!

Lake Powell 2!!!

I know, I know, pictures and posts of boating are getting super old.... but I had to post our awesome Lake Powell trip again!! This vacation was only a couple of days because Andy had a final on Thursday we had to be to, but it was well worth the drive to be in Lake Powell once again this summer even if it was only a short trip. We were able to bring my cousin Erik and his wife Jamie this time and it was a blast! Here are some of the fun pictures.
