...Happy Days...

I have been so happy these last few days! It really has been so great and has made the world of difference... I know it is because I got to teach Relief Society today. These last few weeks I have been studying and reading my scriptures more and because we went to the temple this week. We go every month, but I never go so prepared to listen and learn as I did this last time and I have tried to carry that Spirit of the temple home with me and I think that it has worked! Not that me and Andrew fight a lot, but we haven't gotten in little stupid arguments here and there and it has made me SO happy! Also, we've had so much more time to be together and it makes me SO excited to be done with school in 5 months because hopefully then I won't have as much on my plate and we'll be able to be together more. Life really is fabulous!

I have been getting kind of antsy just sitting in our apartment so much and not really doing anything fun so on Friday morning I woke up to the smell of Cinnamon Rolls- thanks babe- and then we watched The Price is Right together- And Yes, I would have won my showcase! Me and Andrew guessed the prices and everything and I totally won! Then, I had a great idea! We decided to go hike up to The Wind Caves! It is about a 2 mile hike up and 2 mile hike down. We did it 2 summers ago when we were dating, but man- I did not remember how hard it was! I forgot how straight up it was, but we had a lot of fun and took a lunch up there and ate in the wind cave. Here are some pictures...

...This is what Andrew gets for being 6'3.5" and picking such a short wife, Ha Ha!...
I am so happy that our schedules worked out so that we could go and have fun together finally! Later that night we got to watch some great Fireworks with our friends Jase and Whitney in our backyard- thanks for coming guys!

Earlier this week my sister in law Amy and nephew Dylan came with me to Andrew's soft ball game and I had to post this picture of Andrew and Dylan because he is THE ONLY person that looks cute with his gut hanging out in a picture- ha ha! Thanks Amy and Dylan for coming with me!
For the 4th we got up bright and early and went to the Lewiston Parade with Andrew's parents. It was fun and I am really glad that we went because it made the day feel like the 4th. As a kid we used to always go to the Magna Parade and we haven't been forever, so it was really fun!

...Yes, I did put my extensions back in... I LOVE THEM!!!...

...Gay, Terry, Edith, Andrew and me...

...Look at these little ponies! So Cute!......They just make me laugh they are so cute...

Hope everyone had a great 4th! Love ya!

Oh I'm so sad that I missed it. We stayed at Taylor's parents' house for the weekend... I'm sure it was wonderful. By the way, I'm jealous of your extensions, they look great and I love the red in them.

Hey! It looks like you guys have had lots of fun lately. And that belly boy is sure cute! I guess I'm a little biased. It was fun to go to the game with you. Have a good day!
