New Found Hobby

Yes it is true, I have recently developed a new summer hobby. My mom bought a beach cruiser two years ago. How come I did not know this? After finding out, my initial thought was to ask her if I could have it since it's been in storage for two years. But instead, I only asked to "BORROW" it for the summer. I'm thinking she will only forget about it after a while. We've had fun riding around with Emily, Hank, Alesha, and Tyler. I seriously can't stop riding this thing.
I also included pictures of Nate and Hank making friends on the long boards. Meet Jarome!

Swimwear For All Colors, Shapes, and Sizes!!

So I'm currently looking for a new bathing suit. Yesterday I went to google and typed in "modest swimwear." Yes, this is one of the sites I found. And yes, they are really selling these as swimming suits. Can you believe it? I think I happened to come across an Amish Website. I figure if the Amish people can do it, so can I! The best part about these swimming suits is you don't have to change before going out for the night. It's a package deal. I think I might buy one, or maybe even make one myself. What do you think?

We went to my parents house last weekend to celebrate my sweet little brothers birthday. He is honestly such a good kid. There is nine years between the two of us with no siblings in between. My parents always knew there was another little boy to come after me. Little did they know, he would come nine years later. There is such a close connection between the two of us. It's also so cute how much he looks up to Nate. What a joy he is...

The t.v. is not part of his presents. We're still moving things into my parents house.

Easy bro on the ugly faces!

Wedding in Nebraska

This past week my family went to Omaha for my cousins wedding reception. It was fun spending time with our extended family. We also got to stay a couple nights with Nate's brother Jason, his wife Amanda, and our cute little nephew Jaden. Other than the tornado warnings, and our luggage getting lost on the way back, it was a great trip.

My aunts flower boutique. They made the flowers for the wedding.

I am fully aware that our last three posts have been about random wildlife adventures. I promise we are not granola people who live in the mountains. Or are we??
Friday night we went camping with our friends Brent, his girlfriend Jen, my brother and his girlfriend. As you can tell by the picture below, Nate obviously thinks he's an animal who bounces off tree's. Three words...out of control!

Life's Lessons

So I recently learned a valuable lesson...never let Nate choose our FHE activity. Don't get me wrong; he's great when it comes to planning dates or weekend get-aways but I now know FHE activities aren't his strong suit. I was assuming we'd go out to dinner, take a walk, or at least get dessert or something. I couldn't have been more wrong! He drove me all the way up Hobble Creek canyon before he finally told me what our activity was....

FISHING! Can you believe that? Boys will be boys I guess. Now I won't feel bad when I rent "27 Dresses" for next week's FHE activity. In all honestly I had a lot of fun just being with him. The weather was perfect and the canyon was beautiful. And the best part was he didn't even get mad at me when I snapped off his most expensive lure into the water on my first, and consequently last cast.
