Sunshine And Summer Time

This summer has been so much fun, the only problem is that is has flown by way to fast! We have had numerous blessings and opportunities come to us within the last few months. Cam and I are both very grateful for everything we have been given and feel so lucky to be where we are today!

In May, I accepted a teaching job teaching Family and Consumer Science. I am so excited for the school year to start! Cam's and my family have helped me clean up the classroom, and it is about ready to begin school! Cameron recently finished his summer classes (12 credits worth) and got straight A’s once again. I am not sure how he does it, but he will be a junior with a 4.0! I married a smart man that’s for sure! :)

We have been able to spend many weekends up at the cabin this summer! Because of this, Cameron can almost 360 on the wakeboard! My boat driving skills are getting better and better and one day we hope to have a boat of our own! We love spending time up there and being with friends and family.

Meet the Larsens. We love them! We have had so much fun with them this summer! Hilari and I especially loved going to the Boise Music Festival! We sang along and danced to the Backstreet Boys while the boys pretended not to be into it. Haha It was a blast!

Cam and I have had a new spark of adventure come into our lives this summer. My summer job made me be more outdoorsy than I ever imagined I could me! I began Mountain Biking and Outdoor Rock Climbing, and I love every minute of it! For Cameron’s Birthday we went on a scavenger hunt all around Boise and one activity was to climb the Black Cliffs! It was so fun to be climbing with Cam! He was much better than I was… but we both made it to the top! We have also found out 2 really exciting things in the last couple weeks!

#1. Cortney and Chase are moving back to Boise! We love love love Cort and Chase and their little boys Tegan and Burke!!! We are so excited to have them here so we can hang out with them and see them all the time!

#2. Jessica Smith my best friend from high school…college and beyond is going to serve a mission! She will be going to Winnipeg, Canada! I will miss her so very much, but I lived through the 2 years writing Cam and I will be an excellent pen pal for Jess for her year and a half mission! :)

Cam and I have enjoyed summer so far and we are looking forward to camping this next weekend at the City of Rocks! We love being here in Boise and being together. We have created many fun memories in our Year and 3 months of married life. We know there are many more blessings and adventures in front of us.

Now that I am graduated... I have lots of time!!

My goodness time really flies. Cameron and I have been married a whole year now! We have had so many adventures together and have loved every minute of it! For our anniversary we went out to dinner and then we went to SUGARLAND! We had the idea that everyone was going to be country so we busted out the flannel...boy we were surprised when everyone was wearing normal clothes. haha

The dear sweet husband of mine got us front row tickets and it was AMAZING! A night to remember for sure!

This year was also a huge year because I graduated! My student teaching is over and my BYU days are complete! My whole family and Cams family came down to Utah to celebrate with us. I feel so blessed and lucky to have such a wonderful, loving and supportive family and husband. Cameron also finished another semester of college and has decided to be a finance major at Boise State. He is brilliant and excelling in school right now!

After graduation, we went up to Park City and stayed the night! It was so fun to see all the Olympic stuff and shop! It was a beautiful place!

AND...or those of you who are unaware… Cameron took first place in the PINEWOOD DERBY! Haha… he was so proud of his car and took first place! His car was called Mo’ Money and he had pennies glued all over the top. He never fails to bring a smile to everyone’s face!

Another wonderful adventure happened just last week…SEATTLE! It was so fun! It was a fast trip, but I would do it again in a heart beat. We ate dinner at the top of the space needle… which was the coolest place I have ever eaten! The floor rotates so you get to see all of Seattle in the time you are sitting there!

I was so nervous to go up there…(Its so high and I can hardly climb into the attic.. haha) but I am so glad I did it! We also went to the Seattle Aquarium!

We have had so many blessings and opportunities this year! We love living in Boise again and being just a short drive away from family. We are both looking forward to cabin time and boating this summer! We have found amazing friends here in Boise and love our little house! What a wonderful life!

3 Months in a Nutshell

It is hard to believe we have already been married for almost 3 MONTHS! It has been so amazing, the best 3 months ever! We have been so busy with beginning our life attempting to cook dinner every night that our blog has suffered...But here we are!

We are so grateful for all the people who came and supported us on our wedding day! It was a day that I had been looking forward to my WHOLE life and seeing people come from many states made my day super special! Everything turned out perfect! We love you all! This is our
wonderful wedding day :)

We were married in the Boise Idaho Temple the flowers were beautiful! The rain came down and the floods came up ALL DAY! The good news is...the rains parted for pictures and our reception. We were told that rain brings good luck...we don't know if that is true, or if they were trying to make us feel good inside the temple, as we watched the sky turn dark and the waters rise. haha

These are my wonderful, beautiful, amazing, BRIDESMAIDS!!
(Jessica, Brittney, Cortney)
After the wedding we took a lovely honeymoon trip to the Oregon Coast! It was so fun... windy as heck...but we were just so excited we were married! :)

haha! this explains the wind storms. The wind was so strong it broke my sweet zebra umbrella otherwise it would have been in the picture. How sad.

We had a blast though! We went to Ripley's Believe It or Not, The Wax Museum and an Underwater Aquarium!

There were so many lookouts, and waterfalls...oh man the beauty of it all! We loved our honeymoon!

After our trip to the cabin, Cameron's 22nd Birthday, it was the 4th of July celebration!!

We went to the rope swing in Veterans park to start the day off. Upon arrival, we witnessed a young fellow slam into the tree. Due to not letting go of the rope once he swung out. As we stared at his blood gushing head, instantly bruised body and his dazed look, we quickly changed our mind and found the first beach to swim. That night we lit some sparklers, and serious amounts of fireworks. We went and watched the Meridian fireworks that night with Cameron's Family.

As you can see this is our cute little first house! Yes Cameron would hit the ceiling if he walked forward. haha.... he has to duck in certain spots or we will have to take a trip to the Emergency Room for stitches.

Well that's been our life these last 3 months. So many adventures have passed, so many more to go! :)
