A little town called Midway

No I don't really have a lazy eye

Nick and I went to Midway this past weekend and stayed in the Zermatt hotel. Whoever thought to put a Swiss town in the middle of Utah was ingenious. Who wants to travel to Switzerland when we have our own Switzerland right here? Apon arrival and check in they gave us these delicious truffle balls covered in cinnamon and sugar and I am not huge truffle fan but I could eat a whole box of those. Then we went to the town's attraction "the crater" which is basically a volcanoe looking things with warm water in the center that people can scuba dive, snorkel or even just swim in. However we did not get the opportunity to swim. Instead we went to dinner and ate some yummy gelato after. Why execise when you can eat? We had a good time and hope to go back soon.

Hiking....sort of

This is me using my photography skills
This is what I imagine Dog Lake looks like...if only we kept going.

One more and I am caught up. Since our wedding is over and summer has come to an end and I am back in school and Nick is on business trips we haven't had the chance to get out and do much but we did go hiking the other day up big cottonwood canyon. Our destination was this lake called Dog lake.. but we didn't see any of dog lake. We hiked in a good two miles and half or so and called it quits cause we weren't seeing it. Once we got back to the entrance we noticed on the sign that it said it was 3 miles in. If we hadn't given up and just gone that extra 1/2 of mile we might of actually seen Dog lake. Moral of the story, don't give up. We did get some pretty sweet shots though.


This was the View from their reception, not to mention someone's backyard. Amazing!

Nick and I had the opportunity to fly to California to go to his old roommates wedding. We stayed with this sweet little Thai lady names Noi who fed us and gave us little gifts from Thailand. Mine happened to be the coolest and it was an Asian Moomoo (no idea how to spell that) It looks more Polynesian to me but it says made in Thailand so who knows. Anyway we had a good time. It was short but we made the best of it by visiting the LA temple and going to a little get together where Nick and I were the only white people. We watched the Olympics and ate some.... interesting food.

Bear Lake

So first things first, the weekend following our honeymoon we went up to Bear Lake with my family. Every year my family goes up to Bear Lake and lucky for Nick he got to come along this year and be a part of all the drama. No, it was pretty drama free this year but I can't say that about the previous years. I just hope that it wasn't a wake up call for Nick and that he wasn't wondering what he got himself into. we all had a good time and for those of you who have never been to Bear Lake I suggest you go!
Wow I am just learning how to do this whole blogging thing and it is much more difficult than I thought it would be. It took me a good hour or two to set up my page. I guess it doesn't help that I am technologically challenged either. Nick tells me that I spend too much time on Face book. Embarrassingly enough he is probably right. So this can be my new addiction. Besides this is for "married people" so it's okay to waste my time on it right? Here is goes, I hope I can manage posting more blogs.
