Rafting the Provo River

This weekend we had the chance to raft the Provo river with Sarah, Ryan, Lara and Tyler. Lara and Tyler are in our ward and we love being able to hang out with them. (BTW Lara makes some mean enchiladas!!) So Saturday morning we roughed it up the canyon to try the perilous journey down the rapids. Ok so it really wasnt that bad. The water was freezing but it was hot enough to make up for it. The guys were great navigators and we made it safe and sound down the easy part. Then we left our hubbies to raft the bottom part of the river which turned out to be pretty dangerous. Apparently Tyler fell out and they narrowly passed under a bridge, but they survived with only minor injuries and alot more confidence. The canyon really is a beautiful place: we are so lucky to have such beautiful creations around us! Thanks to our friends for making it all happen!

The Last Month

Derek and I have been so busy! We are getting settled in to our life in Provo and really loving it. I have been working at Buckle three weeks and am really enjoying it. I am getting the hang of the store and love helping people feel better about themselves. Derek is doing great with school! He is studying hard and meeting some great friends, which always makes it easier to study. We are having so much fun and just feel blessed to have the life we do! Here are a few pictures from my most recent baking disaster and my new hair cut!

Cali with the Vorwallers

For the fourth of July we joined the Vorwallers on a road trip to California. It was such a fun weekend, even though it went way too fast! We had so much fun seeing Grandma and Grandpa Humpherys and being able to see the city! Derek had never been, so we spent the day at the Pier and driving around to all the main tourist sites. We also toured Grandpas orchard and ate the best fruit ever! However, the best part was the In'n'out we got on the way home! We were totally satisfied :) I love being married and Derek and i loved our first vaca together! Hopefully there are many more to come!
