I can do hard things.

If you have ever been to Pineview Lake before, you will know what I will be talking about.
There is a it is a mountain..that you have to drive over from Morgan to get there.
When I was younger, we used to go boating there quite often I always loved going over those rolling hills and seeing the beautiful view of the lake on the other side. But this last time I went over that MOUNTAIN I can't say I enjoyed it as much..I don't even think I really recognized the lake was there

Some crazy lady had the idea of running over that mountain and back!
Which would make that run close to 20 miles...
The same crazy lady that made me have the thought that I needed to run a marathon.
Yes that crazy lady would be my mom.

But I must say she is one that reminds me that I can do hard things.
(She is amazing..she has ran this crazy route many times..and has ran many marathons.)
Sometimes hard things are not the most enjoyable.
I wish I could tell you I enjoyed running up hill for 5 miles before getting the slightest break of straight or down hill. I wish I could say that I would want to do it again because it made me feel good.

It was hard! I am sore!
While running...well I have to admit I had to walk quite a bit as well..
I just thought why am I doing this? Every part of my body is hurting.
But then I just had to tell my self I can do hard things. 
Maybe I can't do them very well but I was doing it.

But the run was beautiful...and hopefully it will help me for the big day. 18 days. wow!

Chocolate Cake

While we were in Lake Powell Bill Cosby's comedy skit about chocolate cake was brought up.
Dad is great...give us chocolate cake!
We would randomly just say it..and yes it of course made me want chocolate cake.
That sunday after getting home, we were at my moms house and I decided to make chocolate cake! Easy and pretty simple AND great! :)
When it comes to desserts for us we sure do love them!
 (we just never have enough left overs to have for breakfast...)
I am trying to tell myself that we will start eating a little better now that we will be back to a more regular schedule of school and work (and hopefully we really will)..but you always have to have a little dessert every now and then.

Here is the video if you don't know what I was talking about. A little long but enjoyable! :)

Work then Play...

Work then play....then work.

Wow..its been a busy past few weeks!
We are officially moved out from our Kaysville apartment. I must say it did us well for the first year and so of being married. We loved living so close to both of our parents. :) Our stuff is now up in Logan waiting for us in our new place...the last couple weeks we have been doing the whole living in the parent's basement so we could finish the last 2 weeks of working at our jobs down here..good thing they love us! I must say though I am pretty surprised with how much crap we took a while to pack it and figure out where to put it all.
 Once we were all moved out we went right into packing and moving Brooklyn and Chris (Jesse's sister) into their new home they built out in North Salt Lake. And Megan and Dallin (Jesse's other sister) followed right after moving into their old place. Now hopefully no more packing and moving till we move which will be within a year...but it should be easier then.

So between working a lot and moving a lot-a nice trip down to Lake Powell was just the thing we all have been counting down to! :) Oh how I LOVE Lake Powell..definitely one of my favorite places!
Playin in the sand..
The Lonesome Dove
I tried slalom skiing for the first time..and I enjoyed it! 
Got up on my first try but it makes your arms tired quite fast.
Lots of card playing and relaxing
little William
Fishin in the mornin
boatin in the afternoon
Goodbye Lake Powell for now...hope to see you again soon! :)

Now we have to enjoy this last week until school starts for Jesse and I start giving Flu shots--back to workin hard. Is summer really to an end?
