So Far This Summer

I told myself that I wasn't going to be one of those bloggers who goes for long periods of time without posting. Well...epic fail... I apologize and I will try to be better. So I guess it's time to catch up the blogging world on my summer. Here are the things I have done so far:

A couple of trips to Yuma to see my family. It's always much needed! Two visits to San Diego (beach and temple!), tubing down the Colorado river, and good food!
And of course I have to take my partner in crime along.
Yay for road trips!


My beautiful cousin's dance recital (she's extremely talented). I took my friend Tyler along with me. No one told me dance recitals were like four hours long haha but it was worth every minute to see her dance!

Some girl's nights out (a necessary summer activity)

Mustaches from the nickel-cade.

A girl's got to get her make-up done at the mall every once in a while.

A dollar movie is always a good summer activity even if it's a terrible movie.

Boating! I've already been up to my aunt's house three times this summer. My cousins taught me to wakeboard and I got up on my fourth try! I feel pretty good about that. Wakeboarding is my new summer addiction, to take the place of snowboarding of course.

The Fourth of July
July is definitely my favorite month of the year, barbecues, swimming, fireworks, and my Birthday of course. I spent the Fourth of July at my Great-Uncles cabin. Family, four-wheeling, games, and good food = a great weekend.

We call this the "Redneck Jeep" 

Megan is the cutest 9-Month-Old Ever!

Harry Potter... I tried to tell myself that I wasn't one of the obsessed ones. People talked about the premier of the last movie all week and I thought, "no big deal, I'll just see it in the dollar theater". Well I got a last second invitation to see it at 3:15 am and decided to go. Watching a movie in the middle of the night is all part of the college experience, right? Well as I was sitting there in the theater my eyes glued to the screen gasping, laughing, and crying I realized that I am obsessed and always have been. Here's to the end of an era... I love you Harry Potter!

Runny frosty's and incorrect orders from Wendy's. 

Lexie was a house elf and Taylor and I were "invisibility cloaks" Lexie's clever idea haha.

And last but not least... Lagoon! My friend Danielle and I decided that it would be good birthday presents to ourselves. What starting out as just her and I going turned into 13 lifeguards and a fantastic trip!
Memorable moments from the day include Lagoon-a-Beach (which I had to beg people to go to with me) and the free tubes we got there, a delicious lunch and our giant locker to hold it, playing "signs"-like games while waiting in lines (we only got a few weird looks), filming our ride on The Rocket, riding The Colossus eight times each because we ran back on over and over again right before closing, braiding hair during lunch, and of course the fact that we went picture crazy!

Well that's about it folks. I'm going to enjoy the amount of summer that I have left. Before I know it, it will be over. Good News: Meighan will come back from Ohio. Bad News: Back to School. Until then I'll just be lifeguarding away, working on my tan, teaching children to swim, wakeboarding, and enjoying my Birthday this weekend. I do love summer :)
