We went to Oklahoma this spring and brought our doggy Buster back with us. We just love him so much!
He even is learning to skate with us.
But honestly, this is what he does most of the time.

Except when I scarred him really bad by grabbing him and tossing him in the dark and he bit me right on the nose.

Summer Activities.

This summer we have been working a ton, but had a little bit of time to do a few sports.

Lance is really good at bike tricks. Me... not so much. He always tries to get me to lay down on the ground so he can jump over me.
I always refuse. I know he can jump high and far enough (we have done extensive testing with cardboard boxes) but I am still not willing to take the chance.
We also started long boarding this summer.
When Lance and I first got married I had a bad skate board wreck and vowed to never get on a skate board again. Somehow Lance convinced me that long boards were completely different than skate boards.
It's pretty fun.
Although later that afternoon I did wreck on my long board and now have a freckle free circle on my shoulder.

And of course, Lance got in a lot of down hill biking!

Randomness from the last few weeks.

Lance handed me a jump drive the other day and said blog about these pictures. So here it goes!

The first three are from when we went snowshoeing and winter camping. It was really fun. We built a snow fort around our tent.

Now thats its warming up we have started riding our bikes again. We got two sweet car top racks for our bikes.

We went on a hike the other day. We didn't get to go very far because there is still alot of snow but about two days later a man got charged by a grizzly with two cubs on this very same trail. Luckily he had bear spray and was able to get away without getting hurt.

Since it is so snowy still we can't do a lot of mountain biking yet so Lance decided if he couldn't ride his bike he would just continue to snowboard until he could ride! How many people get to say that they snowboarded in July. Not me. I had to work :( He has fun though.

Almost every morning there is at least one hot air balloon over out house. It's awesome.

We went out shooting a couple times recently at the shooting range in Rexburg. Its really fun and I am getting better every time we go. Do you like our new holster we got? I do.

Lastly, we got this little pack for Buster to wear when we go hiking so he can carry his own water and treats. Plus it has a handle on the top so we can pick him up easily if we ever need to move him around. We'll see how he likes it on the trail. :)

I have been making alot of cupcakes lately. I just think they are so fun to make and yummy to eat.

I made these Jell-o cupcakes for Memorial Day. Tasty!

Pineapple upsidedown cupcakes. Maybe no so pretty, but definitely be big Yum-o!

This I thought was just funny. I was making salads for dinner (cause of all the recent cupcake eating) and my egg exploded! I've seen them crack before but I have never seen the yolk leak out and cook!

My bird feeder finally has birds!!

Fishing in Oklahoma

We went to Oklahoma about a two weeks ago and one of the many things we did
was go fishing.

First off, isn't he good looking. We rode bicycles before everyone else got there.
This is him getting ready.

We had some worms for bait and my nephew Cal kept coming up to me saying worms! worms! So I would pick him up and open the box. He thought it was awesome unless the worms got close to him, or touched him. And of course me being the great Aunt I am made sure they touched him everytime. :)

His sister Madi was ok with holding the worms, unless they started moving.

Our friends daughter Claire was indifferent to the worms.

When we started to fish, Lance was going to "help" Claire by putting one of his fish on her line and letting her real it in, but when he pulled her line out of the water it already had a fish on it! She didn't need any help.

Madi caught a fish too, she was perfectly happy to have in on the line, she just didn't want to touch it. I can't blame her, I don't like touching fish that much either.

Misty caught her first fish!

Carson caught a nasty carp. Plus the fish also had another lure hooked in his mouth with a broken string. He caught someone else's uncatchable fish.
Rachel didn't fish so she just pretended to be one.
Later that night we started to run out of fire wood and carson left with his ax so Chris tried to be nature man cut the log with a rock. Too bad it was sandstone.
We set up some cat fish lines after dark with bells on them and caught this beauty. It is pretty fun to be sitting around a fire and all the sudden a bells rings and everyone jumps up and runs over to check their line. Its like a game.

We had alot of fun. We didn't keep any fish. Don't worry I caught fish too but apparently no one thought to take my picture! Sheesh.

My New Office.

Lance set me up an office. Isn't he sweet! I got a new desk, bookshelf, and calendar bulletin board. Its awesome. I actually really love it and spend most of my time it now.
Oh yeah, the best part, an extra monitor for my computer. I love it!

Also I am in the process of recovering the brown office chair. (More pictures to come)

Cookie Monster Cupcakes

I made these for my friends birthday. I have to admit that I didn't come up with them myself. I saw them at our local bakery, but I did make these. They were so fun to make and I just think they are the cutest little guys ever.

What we've been up to.

So I realize I haven't blogged for a long... long.. long... time. So here is an update. I finished school, quit my job, moved, started a new job, and have been shredding the powder pretty much every day. Thats kind of alot I know but there it is. Yesterday Lance and I both had the day off so we got to board together and it was actually sunny (for half the day). This was the first time for us to see the sun in about 2 1/2 weeks. YEA SUN! We took our big camera out to get some pics of us boarding.

I love the tree at the top of the mountain, they look like they are covered in marshmallow cream.
Here is Lance on the natural 1/2 pipe. He is really good at half pipes. We need to drive over the pass to Jackson Hole so he can play in a real one.
Its kind of funny so see pictures of yourself jumping. I didn't realize I put my arms put like I am flying every time I jump. I guess I am just a free bird.

This is Lance's model pose in the air.

I yell at Lance every time he does this jump. the snow is covering it but its about a 8-10 foot sheer rock face that he jumps off. All I have to say about it is he is psycho.
There are the marshmallow trees again!

Giants in the clouds.
This is such a good shot I think I am going to send it to the Never Summer company for them to use in their advertising. (thats their logo on the bottom of my board.)

This is my favorite jump. Its a spine so you just go up one side and down the other without getting much air but its really fun. Its like a little roller coaster.

Can't beat the view.
