Dear Everyone,

I suppose it's time to let the word out that I will no longer be staying here in the place I love so very much. I will be moving back to Utah in mid-December. Trevor needs to finish up school and he can do it best in the beehive state. Then we'll be married in the spring, hopefully. I love him.

Give my regards to broadway

The Appalachian Trail

I went hiking on the Appalachian Trail. It's a trail that stays along the top of the appalachian mountains and spans from Maine to Georgia. It was a beautiful hike. We started at 5:00ish am and ended at about 11 am. It was steep and sweaty, but very fun. At the top of every "mountain" there is a pile of rocks that you can climb up and sit on to see above the trees. This is the tallest "mountain" in Connecticut. It is 2316 ft above sea level. Coming from Utah, that's rather sad.

After hiking, we drove around forever looking for the oldest condensed milk factory in America. It was hard to find in a town in the middle of nowhere without any street signs. When we did find it, all it was was this sign. There wasn't even a factory. Just a sign and a bunch of trees. It was quite a disappointment.

YSA's got Talent!

Talent show for the YSA. It was a lot of fun, and possibly one of the best talent shows I've ever been to. Here are some highlights...Ryan sang opera!
Trevor sang a rather hilarious song.
Seth played the accordian! It was awesome.
And I was pregnant for a skit.

Happy 15th!

I went to a quinceniera for a girl in my ward. There was traditional dancing and presentation of their daughter,
a father-daughter dance,
a live Mariachi (spelling?) band (which was heck-totally awesome),
And last but not least, GREAT food!

I love Bonnie

This is what happens when she helps me cook.

I lost $10

Well, I'll be darned. My brother actually went through with it. Ten dollars goes to Natalie.

I must say I've never seen my brother so happy. I've never even seen him smile for cameras with his teeth showing. I've never seen him cry, especially never from being so happy. It's amazing how love can change two people. Katie has really been great for Chris. I'm so happy to officially have Katie and the boys in the family. I love you guys so much. Congratulations. Best ten bucks I ever lost.

M+T=Awesomeness all around!

Here he is, ladies and gentlemen. Just a few of my favorite pictures...

We are SO cute together!
Look how good he looks wearing my pants! Still so jealous!

Palmyra Trip 06

Well, I finally got around to posting this trip! It was such a blast...a painful..blast...! Enjoy!

Random Pictures of Camp

I look like a drowned rat.
Camp was very wet. It rained all night Friday, and most of Saturday. We just got used to feeling damp. Especially after Niagra. There was no drying off after that.

My legs

I decided to wander through some poison oak. My legs and right hand swelled up pretty bad. I counted 130 bumps after a few days. 68 on my left, 62 on my right leg. The best part? NOBODY in camp had any anti-itch cream. So I tried not to itch for 3 days. I didn't sleep at all at night. They hurt so bad. They just throbbed and itched. Niagra falls was painful. The Pageant was painful. The sacred grove was...not so bad because I was in a skirt. But, I still had fun. And I'm glad it's long since over.

Once I got home, I found the best thing to remedy my legs was lotsa cream and two pairs of tight, high socks.

Is it just me

Or does it look like the steeple is coming outta my head?

Niagra Falls

The whole group. Some went on the Maid of the Mist. Others hiked down to them. I hiked down.
Me, Alpha, Gama, Jenna
The Ponchos did NOTHING
We're so cute when we're soggy.
As you can see, the only thing that was dry, was our sleeves.

The Hill Cummorah Pageant

Most amazing pageant ever! The best part is knowing you are sitting right where some of this history happened. There's a unique feeling there. It's called the Spirit.

And of course, protesters. I love protesters.
