More Crazy Pictures

My dad and I at the Pocatello Endurance Festival. We did the 50 mile ride. I came in first out of the women (there were only 3 of us). I think my dad came in 2nd maybe?
My mom and dad at the Pocatello Endurance Festival. My mom ran the 1/2 marathon while my dad and I were riding. She hated was 4 loops. Can you tell?
My nephew Cole and I. I won't get to see him until Christmas so I'm sure he'll look LOTS different.
Here's a picture of Naughty Simon and his favorite toy. He obviously loves it.
My mom and I at the Lewiston 5k.
Another picture of Naughty Simon just because he's cute...

Random Summer Pictures

So, I was sitting at work and realized that I have lots of summer pictures that I didn't get around to posting and I figured since I have some time right now, I might as well get around to it. So, here's some of the fun times that happened this summer that haven't been documented yet.
One Saturday afternoon, apparently on July 11, Tim and I drove up to Bear Lake to have yummy cheeseburgers, onion rings, and fresh raspberry shakes, because that's what you eat when you go to Bear Lake. We drove back up to the summit and had lunch overlooking the lake. We got some good people watching done and decided to take a few pictures. This is one of my favorites!
After lunch, we drove back to Logan through the offroad. Good thing that Tim has a big land tank. We stopped and decided to do some shooting and I got to shoot the big cowboy gun. I have no idea what the name of this gun is, but it was a big one. I also got to shoot the AR and another revolver, but no pictures of that.
Here's a random shot of me being goofy...
And a random shot of Tim and I...

Road Trip

On August 1 it was time to head back to IL. Definitely a sad day in my world, but much better than usual because Tim drove back with me.

First, we had to drive to Salt Lake City to leave Tim's truck at the airport so he had a way to get home after his flight back. Then we headed over to Park City where we thought about stopping at perhaps the busiest McDonalds I've ever seen in my life, but we ended up at Arby's instead since there was no wait. Then it was on to Wyoming.

Then Nebraska...the longest state ever...

I caught a nap or at least a lie down in my seat break for a bit. Of course, Tim had to take a picture of this.

We stopped in Grand Island, Nebraska for the night and crashed at the local Holiday Inn with lots of very young wedding guests and alot of very odd people. The next morning we left there and made it across Nebraska and headed through Iowa. The bad part about driving back to IL is that the speed limit gets slower and slower. 75 mph in Wyoming and Nebraska, 70 mph in Iowa, and 65 mph in good old Illinois.

We stopped at one more rest stop in Illinois and then made it to my apartment at 5pm Sunday. Not too bad for two days of driving across the country...oh and we both had smiles on our faces.

Big News

Well, I'm totally late in posting this. Things have been pretty hectic crazy busy in my world, but on July 24, I got engaged. Here's a picture of the ring for all those who are dying to see it.

We haven't set a date yet, but we're thinking June 2010. I'm sure there will be lots more details to follow.
