We got back from Wyoming a little less than an hour and ago and are tired but happy to be home. We had such a fun time and I wish we could have stayed longer! I love being with family. But I was thinking, and it'll be so nice to be in heaven after everything is all done and what a blessing it is that we can all be sealed together as families in this church. Because we won't even need to take vacations to see our relatives in heaven probably. They'll all be there with us and we'll be able to see each other whenever we want. Thinking about that makes me very happy. :) Here are some photos from our crazy fun trip.
Yay! We arrived safely here in Wyoming after our 6 hour drive yesterday. I LOVE IT HERE. It is so nice to be able to be here with family and play with cousins and just relax. Last night the adults went out for dinner to celebrate my grandparents' 49th anniversary, while all the cousins stayed home and watched the little kids. It was crazy. And fun. :) Today I went shopping with my mom and got some cute shirts and a new pair of shoes--we always find great deals here in Cheyenne every time we come! Later today I think we might be going with our cousins to see "The Sorcerer's Apprentice."
Tomorrow morning we're going to the Frontier Days parade, which is such a HUGE parade (I'm being super sarcastic). We just go every year for tradition, but the highlight of the parade is watching the horses poop on the road as they come by and laugh at the float with all the drunk people. That's Wyoming for ya. ;) It's so so pretty here though. I wish we didn't have to go home on Tuesday! :(
P.S. Still sick. :( And on vacation of all times! :( :( I think its getting worse...and to top it all off I have a canker sore as well as allergies cuz my grandma has dogs and I'm allergic. Go figure. :P Oh well, have a happy day! :)
I'm sick. :( Poo. I have a bad cough that hurts and my voice comes and goes. Mostly goes though. It goes just above a whisper. :( I think I have a cold, but honestly, it doesn't really matter to me. I haven't taken any medicine and I know that sooner or later (let's hope sooner), I'll be all healthy again! Being sick is a regular part of life, especially mine, since I feel like I've gotten sick a lot lately.
On a happier note, tomorrow my family and I leaving for Cheyenne, Wyoming, a place I would most definitely call my second home. Most of my dad's family lives there so we stay at my grandparents' big house, play around with cousins, and just relax. Oh and go to Frontier Days too! We never actually try going specifically for Frontier days, but that always seems to be the only time we really can go every summer. It works out though, because it makes Cheyenne a little more exciting and gives us more to do. Seriously, you've probably never heard anyone talk this excited about Wyoming, but it's always a highlight of my year to go. I can't wait!
Just as another random update, I'm currently reading the Harry Potter series again, for the 10th time. I'm almost done with the 5th book, and then I'll just have two more to go! And I've already promised myself that I'm going to watch all the movies when I'm done reading the series. I completely admit that I'm a total HP nerd, but those books are so good. They get better with each one. If you haven't read them because you don't think you'd be interested or you don't want to jump on the bandwagon, do me a favor and READ THEM! My life would not be complete had J.K. Rowling never written those books, starting on a napkin in a coffee shop. Kudos to her! Guess I better go and finish that 5th book... ;)
Oh and have you seen the trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (#7)?!?! It looks soooo good! I put it on here so you could all see if you haven't already. I can't wait! You can bet I'll have midnight showing tickets to these movies for sure!!
About a month and a half ago I tried out for a musical, something I haven't done for a long time, but I really have been wanting to do for a while. I got a call back, but I didn't make it. At the time, I was pretty bummed about it, but I decided to move on, because it obviously wasn't meant to be and I couldn't just sit around sad about it.
NOW I am so so grateful I didn't make that musical. I've had such a fun and relaxed summer, which I think is something I really needed. If I had made it, I would have been super busy going from work to practices and then getting home late at night. I wouldn't have been able to do all the fun things I've been doing lately, like going on adventures at night with my besties, going to Cali (probably one of my most favorite vacations i've ever taken), making a quilt out of all my old t-shirts, going to Wyoming this coming week, spending lots of fun time with my family, and lots more.
I still would love to do a musical in the future, but now wasn't the time. Heavenly Father is taking good care of me whether I like it or not. He always is. :)
I'm back from Cali! Wow, best vacation ever. We went to Huntington, Laguna, and Santa Monica Beaches, and we also went to California Adventures and Disneyland. Oh it was so much FUN! I love California so much. So much that I want to live there someday. :) I took about 300 photos and am still editing and organizing them all, so I don't have time to put them up now, but hopefully I will later. And for all of you on facebook, just stay updated cuz I will post lots up on an album.
Next vacation: Cheyenne, Wyoming; leaving next Thursday, July 22. Can't wait!!!
Oh my goodness, Carrie Underwood was AMAZING! Last night was one of the best nights of my life! Wow, I'll never forget it. I cried when she came on because I was so happy. Seriously, she's so inspirational and gives me so much hope! I love her! Here are some pics from Stadium of Fire. Man, I am so happy and had such a wonderful night!!
Now one of the best nights of my life is done :( But oh how happy I am! There will be another Carrie Underwood concert soon..and until then, I'll just keep listening to her songs every day and being her biggest fan. :D
