I'm warning everyone now this post will be a lengthy one. I haven't blogged since June. Summer hit and I swear the fast forward button got pushed on life. So here is what we've been up to...(in no particular order)
We got a calling in our ward! Cameron and I were called to be sunday school teachers for the 16-17 year olds. I am so excited. Everyone in our ward has been telling us what great youth we have in the ward. I am a little nervous about teaching but I think it will be a great learning experience for us.
4th of July- This year the 4th of July just kind of came and went. Sadly nothing exciting to report on. Cameron worked all day, and by all day I mean 6am-8pm. I worked for my brother Martin all day. Martin owns his own business called 'The Cotton Candy Guy'. I guess I should say Martin and Clarissa own a business...she works just as hard with him. They do cotton candy and snowies at events. They had 3 events on the 4th. I was in Layton for the morning and then went to Clearfield for the evening. I have been helping out where I can all summer. I appreciate Martin letting me work for him, having that extra money really helps while I'm trying to find a job. Plus I get to eat all the snowies and cotton candy i want....can't go wrong there. :)
Cameron is still working at Dish Network. He likes his job for the most part. It can be stressful for him at times, but what job isn't right? Cam works so hard and I really appreciate him. Cameron has Sunday, Monday and Tuesdays off so we try to fit in as much fun as possible on his "weekends". Here are a few of our favorite things we've done on his days off: Swimming at my Grandmas pool, motorcycle trip to Park City for the night, Drive-in movie, playing Wii, having our siblings stay the night, and sleeping in!
Another thing I've been up to.......The Ragnar Wasatch Back Relay. I ran this June 19&20. It was the hardest and coolest thing I've ever done in my life. 12 team members-188 miles-30 hours-0 sleep. I will dedicate a whole post to this race soon. I have to find the dang card reader to get the pictures first.
My garden is coming along great. Except for the fact that the deer like to snack on my garden as well. I've planted my greens beans 4 TIMES NOW!!!! At first I just thought I had a bad bunch of beans that wouldn't grow. So i re-planted them. Still noting, so I planted again, and again. Each time only getting a few plant to survive. I knew the deer were munching on my plants but this last time they must have been extra hungry they ate pretty much both rows of beans. I even have deer repellent out.(yes there is such thing as deer repellent, I thought it was a joke the first time someone told me to get deer repellent) I'm happy to report I have picked 3 zucchinis so far, apparently the deer are like my husband and absolutely HATE squash. I have 11 tomato plants that will soon have lots and lots of tomatoes. If anyone wants some let me know, I already know I'm going to have more than I can handle.
Summer is only half over so here are some things we are looking forward to:
-Vacation with the Ford Family to Lava Hot Springs next week
-Vacation with the Snyder Family in August to Montana/Yellowstone
-More motorcylce riding
-Me finding a job. (unfortunatly still no luck with the job search)
-Cameron's mom coming out from California in September.
-Just being lazy and enjoying Summer!
