Zions! :)

We had so much fun in Zions! We are happy we decided to go there for our one year anniversary/spring break! And we are thinking of making a National Park/Camping trip at least an annual thing that we do! Anyone that wants to join us in the future, you are more than welcome! The weather could not have been better. Perfect for hiking! I actually got a little sun burned! It made me that much more excited for summer to come!
We camped out in our new tent we got for christmas. It is a backpacking tent, it was perfect size for the two of us. The next two nights we stayed at a cabin right outside Zions at a place called Ponderosa Ranch. It was cute little cabin and nice to be able to shower! :)
We loved all the hikes we went on. So pretty! That was Jesse's first time to Zions!
We actually were good at taking pictures this trip and I didn't know which ones to pick and choose to share so I decided to make a little slideshow video to enjoy instead..on a little movie kick I guess.
We also enjoyed the top tier of our wedding cake that has been sitting in our freezer for the past year. Jesse would say "It was well worth the wait!" It was delightful! Surprisingly way delicious still! Wish I had more!

Murder in the dark?...what?!

Murder in Kaysville? What? This can't be true? But it sure is, go watch the news!
Jesse and I were leaving our neighborhood and right around the corner from our house their was a cop car..and another one down the street..and another..and many many more in the Farr West Motel area.
Don't quite know the details yet but we sure are sleeping with the gun in the room tonight!

One Year! :)

On March 13th, this coming Sunday, as you have heard, is our First Year Anniversary
We will be away celebrating down in Zions! :)
I thought I would share our wedding video.
Here is our Temple ground footage. Yes it was a very snowy cold day but as I have said before we learned it was confetti from Heaven-celebrating with us!
(sorry the quality kind of got lost when downloading it)
Well I accidently downloaded this video first and figured why not keep it on here as well because it has some of our reception in the second half of it but also some of the same footage as above.

Dead Poacher..

Tonight we learned two lessons:
1. Do not have me attempt to make dinner after having to wake up a 3am and being at the hospital for 14 hours. (First day of precepting)
2. This is what an Egg poacher looks like when you forget to put water in the pan.
Eggs and pan completely destroyed--oops! I guess its just toast for dinner!

A foot massage would be nice about now so I can prepare myself for another round of this precepting stuff tomorrow! (I swear I am a better cook than this)

The Result

Here's a picture of me "landing" the barrel role from the previous post. Also, a combined picture of the take-off, the roll, and the landing.

Lonely Friday

Test 1-2. Test 1-2. Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?

I hope everyone can hear me. This is Jesse checking in tonight. Yes, this is my first blog post. I'm sitting at home on a Friday night all alone. Takes me back to high school... Anyways, Marissa is working tonight and I figured write a little something and just let the world know how I'm doing. Things are, quite frankly, going great. Our big one-year mark as a married couple is coming up. I can't believe it's already been a year. Marissa can't believe it's only been a year.  She's the best! We're doing pretty good though. I'm still working in Salt Lake. Marissa is still keeping very busy with work and school. Next weekend we'll take a little break from both work and school and head south for a few days. We've planned a little camping/hiking trip to Zions National Park and I'm super excited. I've never been there and am really looking forward to some time in the great out doors. Did I mention I hate winter for that very reason? No outside time. I'm glad I married someone who loves being outside as much as me. Hopefully we'll have a few pictures and stories of our adventure for the next blog post. Until then, adios.



p.s. Here's a picture of me on a tube hitting a jump and attempting a barrel role four years ago. Enjoy.

Sprained ankle=money

 The past little while I have been playing indoor soccer almost every week.
 I am currently not on a team because our last session just ended- 
and with me starting my precepting (40 hours a week at the hospital) 
and having my jobs and school I just thought I most likely will not have time or I will be exhausted.
 I LOVE playing soccer! And Jesse is good about supporting me and coming to my games! :)
Last night I was invited to come play indoor soccer with some good friends. I was reminded about how a few weeks ago I sprained my ankle. My ankles are pretty weak now because all the injuries growing up.
But something good came out of it this time.
A little thing called 
Sprained ankle=$200
I had to put cream on my ankle 4 times a day. Go in for a couple check ups within a week.
And received $200 for it.
I wouldn't reccommend spraining your ankle for a little extra cash but definitely a bonus for not being able to play.
The money will probably go towards our cars. Gotta love car repairs. Or a can say it is going towards out little get-a-way for spring break/our anniversary. That probably sounds better!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::Dallin and Megan Thatcher::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Dallin and Megan got married this last Saturday February 26, 2011 in the Salt Lake Temple!
We had a good time at the wedding dinner, ceremony, and reception!
We are happy for them and hope to spend more time doing things together!
The reception was fun, it was like a carnival as most people would say.
Megan did an awesome job with making most of the decorations!
Ice cream, cupcakes, eclairs, cotton candy, popcorn, and an assortment of candy!
We love you both!
I only took 3 pictures the whole time, so I will share what I have!
