Where was your first kiss? under mistletoe on valentines day 2001. we were eating dinner at my apartment while studying for a test. lets just say this wasn't your ordinary mistletoe kiss.
Did you have a long or short engagement/courtship? hum..we dated from march to sept 2001. he then went on his mission. he got home in august 2003 and we got engaged feb. 2004.
Where did you get engaged? machu picchu, peru. we were on our way to pick up my sister from her mission in chile. he totally surprised me. i remember he told me that when we get back from our trip we should start looking for rings. we just happened to be in machu picchu on valentines day. typically i wouldn't prefer to get engaged on valentines day, but being in machu picchu was perfect. we took a hike up to a temple and he stopped on the trail and asked me. it was raining and perfect! i of course started laughing when he asked me. he was so cute!!
How was the honeymoon? great. we spent it in scottsdale. we were building our home and decided to take a short honeymoon and then went to spain for our one year anniversary.

It's here, utah football season! I'm so excited for this season!! This Saturday was the Ute's first home game. Unfortunately, they lost...but we had a good time going. Before the game we met up with the Hackings at Ruth's Diner up immigration canyon. It was a perfect day for lunch up the canyon. There is defiantly a hint of fall in the air and some leaves have even started changing. Of course lunch was EXCELLENT. For anyone living or visiting Utah, Ruth's Diner is a MUST!

Saturday we headed up to Park City to watch the Women's International Ski Jumping Festival at the Olympic Park. We were a little disappointed that they ended up canceling the competition because of the wind. Before they canceled it we were able to watch a few jumps and listen to Bryon Friedman and his band. We've been to competitions before, but this was the first time we actually got to sit on the landing of the jumps. Of course Eleanor was more interested in crawling on the landing then watching the jumping. Overall, we had a pretty good time even if the competition was canceled. I think just being there made both John and I pretty anxious for the slopes to open this season!

John and Eleanor feeding the ducks. Eleanor kept calling the ducks "dugs".
Eleanor's second trip to the ER. During the week she started feeling bad and wouldn't eat or drink much and anything she did, she would throw up. On Saturday night she had thrown up so much and was so out of it that we called the DR. and he had us take her to the ER. They did some blood test and it showed she had a virus and was dehydrated. They had to give her an IV (the hardest thing to watch!!) and pump her full of fluids. Poor little girl was not to thrilled about her IV! (Notice my nice outfit. She had thrown up all over me and luckily John had a change of clothes in the car. )
August 2oth: Back to School!!
I decided to go back to school to finish up my photography degree. When I first started college 10 years ago I majored in photography. After I finished at Ricks I decided to switch to Marketing. Once I finished my marketing degree I transferred to the U to finish my photography degree. I completed one year and then moved home for the summer. Elise and I got jobs at UOP and I ended up staying and working. I then moved back to Utah, got married and wasn't able to finish my degree. Well, I've decided its about time I finish this degree. I LOVE photography and I am so HAPPY to be back in school. There is just something so great about being on campus and going to school. I'm taking 4 classes this semester, two next and then one in the summer. Thanks to Tiffany and Jay for watching Eleanor while I'm in school. I COULD not do it without them!
August 24th: American Fork Canyon with the Hackings
We all wanted to get one last camp trip in this summer, but we decided it would be much easier if we just went up the canyon for the evening. We made tinfoil dinners and our all time favorite peach cobbler. We always have a good time with the Hackings and its nice because Evan and Eleanor are quite the buddies.
