the highlight of summer for me is lake powell. i absolutley love going to lake powell and thanks to duff and amy we have been able to go every year! this year it was really windy and kindof cool so i was a baby and didnt surf or wakeboard. i kindof regret it now but had a really great time relaxing.

clark county fair

summer has gone so fast and i have been a huge slacker at blogging! to kick it off we went down to the Clark County Fair. drake showed his pig and did awesome! he won 2 ribbons. it was fun to watch him tap that pig with his cane. i had never seen that before. we also got to watch sierra clog. i didnt get any good pictures because we were too far away but she was really cute. while we were there we also got to watch steve and his dad rope in the rodeo. we love the fair and got to ride a few rides and eat alot of food. minus bradys speeding ticket (97 in a 75!) we had a great weekend!

we made it!

tuesday was our 3 year anniversary! brady had fire class that night from 6-10 so i left work early and we went to an early dinner at red lobster, one of our favorites! seeing alot of people around me struggling with their marriages and seeing how many peoples marriages dont even last 3 years i feel pretty lucky. its been a great 3 years and according to bradys card he gave me he "doesnt understand why people say marriage is hard cause its been easy for him" im glad i could make it easy for him! i love him lots and i feel lucky to be married to him!

saturday brady and i went to the supercross in salt lake city with some friends. we usually go to vegas every year but this year there was one is slc so we went to that one instead. it was cold and rainy but we had a great time anyway. thanks to our good friend greg we had awesome seats! we were right in the middle on row 14 but the first 4 or 5 rows were blocked off so we were way close! it was an awesome race and i cant wait to watch the vegas race this saturday! go reed!

saturday all the draper family went skiing at deer valley. almost everyone was able to come and it was so fun to see all the little kids ski! i have never skiied before but deer valley doesnt allow snowboarding so i learned how to ski. and i loved it! brady went up early that morning and i met up with everyone later that afternoon. thanks to brady and dave (sorry dave about the crash!) i think im really going to love it and cant wait to go again!

presidents day

brady and i had presidents day off so we went and played in the snow with casey, kyle, duff and kace. we went up by mayflower where someone had built some jumps and they (not me. im chicken.) took turns jumping and flipping. it was nice to take the dogs out and let them run. one time brady walked up to the top of the hill and trip followed him all the way up and all the way down! he even jumed off the jump right behind brady! i didnt see him jump because i was taking a picture but duff said it was pretty funny!

my dogs

i saw a post on lesas blog about her dogs and i really liked it so im going to do a post on mine. while i was watching marley & me (which i loved) i thought about my dogs. those of you who know us know we have had quite the bout with dogs. i am pretty happy with the ones we have now and hope they are here to stay. they are great friends and great protectors. they are very territorial and i always feel safe with them around. dogs truly are mans best friend.

good times

its been a while since ive made a post (due to my workplace periodically blocking sites) but things have been really good for us. the holidays are always busy but they are a fun time. we have enjoyed spending time with family and friends and except for pushing snow all chrismas afternoon and evening we had a wonderful holiday season!

the saturday after christmas we went to my cousin julias wedding. it was a beautiful (COLD) day and the luncheon and reception were really great.
new years eve we spent the evening with tolberts and nicolls at heathers cute little homey cabin next to La Caille. we had dinner at Hoppers then went to the cabin and watched 199 Lives and then played some mad Guitar Hero. new years day we got up bright and early to keep the tradition of rabbit hunting in delta, or "bunny blasting" as brady calls it. there werent as many rabbits as last year but it was still fun. p.s. i was at all of these events, i just never end up in any of the pictures!
