Our first REAL summer adventure!

Last week I had a fabulous idea! I thought that it would be fun to go up to Bear Lake on Saturday just so we could get away and enjoy the sun! Because I swear, it has only been nice weather in Logan for about two weeks now. Seriously. It turns out, it was a great idea! On Saturday morning Tyler went to a review session for his anatomy class (which was good, because he said that it helped a lot), and I cleaned the entire apartment! I sure do love having a clean apartment! Anyway, once Tyler got home we packed up our things and headed out to the lake!

Here's the breakdown what happened on Saturday...

  • Tyler went to an anatomy review, Katie cleaned the apartment.
  • Tyler and Katie packed things up, got into their swimsuits and went to the car.
  • Ten minutes into the drive, Katie opened up the bag of BBQ Potato Chips. 
  • Tyler kept driving.
  • Katie watched the Logan River all the way to the lake. It is AMAZING how much water was rushing by. 
  • Katie was also amazed by how high the water was. 
  • Katie kept commenting on the water because she had never seen anything like it before.
  • Tyler kept driving. Poor Tyler, has to listen to Katie talk. 
  • Oh, Tyler talked while he was driving too.
  • Finally got to Bear Lake. 
  • Tried to find a free beach.
  • No luck in finding a free beach, the water was SO high!
  • Went into a paid beach, found a good spot.
  • Enjoyed the sun
  • Got annoyed at the people who decided to hang out 5 feet away from us.
  • Decided to go try out the water.
  • The water was FREEZING!!!
  • Kept walking out into the water. It was funny how cold it was.
  • Decided to get out of the water, dried off.
  • Went to get some lunch at Merlin's. Delicious!
  • Went back to the beach. Some of the annoying people had left.
  • Decided to get back into the freezing water. This time we knew what to expect, so it wasn't as bad. Still freaking cold though.
  • Played Frisbee in the water. Katie is really bad at throwing and catching a frisbee (she eventually got better at it though).
  • Had random kids come watch us play Frisbee. It was really weird.
  • Decided it was time to get out of the water because a bunch of other people had come out with their frisbees, and it got really crowded.
  • Dried off, again. 
  • Went to LaBeau's. Tyler got a Peach shake, Katie got a Chocolate Brownie shake. Delicious!
  • Drove home to Logan. 
  • Discovered sunburns. Yikes!
  • Ate popsicles.
  • Went to bed.
Sorry, that was a really long list! I didn't intend for it to be quite so lengthy. Since I punished you with that list, I will try and make up for it with some fun pictures from the lake! Enjoy!

See, I told you. The water at the lake was REALLY high! That grassy stuff was super disgusting to walk through.

 We are just so cute and in love!

The beach to the right of us looked empty. We didn't want to go down there because it wasn't very close to the car (the sand was REALLY hot) and there weren't many trees around. Bear Lake is so pretty!

Just showing off how cute we are together, again! 

I just need to say Thank You to my WONDERFUL husband for making this trip possible! He is always so good to go along with my crazy ideas! Love you Tyler!

What have you done for fun lately?

Things that made me happy today...

Not going for my morning run and sleeping for another hour instead. It was just one of those mornings, and I totally made up for it at the gym tonight, don't worry.

My husband. He is always so supporting, and I would not be able to do my half marathon anything without his encouragement.

Having blueberry waffles and bacon for dinner instead of cooking chicken parmesan. Sometimes the simple things taste the best!

Convincing Tyler to buy me popsicles at Walmart. We called them "essentials."

What made you happy today?

I must be crazy!!

I registered myself for the Top of Utah Half Marathon that is on August 27! I can't decide if I'm excited or not though. In the evenings I get excited, but in the mornings when I wake up, and when I'm out running, I sit and wonder why I decided to do this. It will be good! I hope.

...13.1 miles sure is a long way to run though...

A Pretty Picture!

Last night after I got done working in the basement of the library I walked upstairs and saw the coolest thing ever! The sun was setting, and everything just looked golden outside, but that could just be because of how the sun was reflecting off of some buildings. Anyway, I looked up into the sky and saw one of the most beautiful and vibrant rainbows that I had ever seen! My phone camera doesn't quite do it justice, bur that's ok! Take a look!

Guilty Pleasures!

  • Getting back into bed in the mornings (however, getting out of bed for a second time in the morning completely STINKS!!)
  •  Watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette
  • Looking at English Bulldog puppies on KSL.
    • They are just real cute! But real expensive too. Plus, I'm not allowed to have a dog yet.
  • Planning vacations that I know I can't afford to go on...
    • But hey, I'm allowed to daydream, right?
  • Eating as much ice cream as I want to!

What are some of your guilty pleasures?

Look! A post with pictures!

Tyler and I finally remembered to take our cameras with us when we had exciting plans! This last weekend we were able to go to the ReAL Salt Lake game on Saturday night, and on Sunday we went to Provo because my dear friend Adri was blessing her baby! It was such a wonderful day, and I'm so excited for her!

Anyway... here are some pictures from the weekend, enjoy!

Here are a few things that I have been seeing a lot of lately...

 My husband driving...

 Sardine Canyon...

 ...and bird poop!

I really enjoy spending time with my husband, I really do! I just wish we spent less time in the car though. I will admit, I do love spending time with our families, and the drive from Logan (and back to Logan) is worth it! It's just too bad we haven't spent a weekend in Logan since before Spring semester ended. Crazy, huh?

Do you want to see some pictures from the ReAL game? Okay. 

Thanks Rob and Linda for the tickets to the game! We had a blast!

Of course, a picture of me and the husband! I think we are pretty darn cute!
I sure do love this man!

Adri and Stacey: Here are the pictures from Sunday!

Did you do anything fun this last weekend?
