Finally making the drive!

Ryan and I have been away from Jared for the past three weeks! We miss him so much! He has been out in Minnesota working hard at something he does not enjoy! I would have to say that this summer has been one of the hardest for me! Every day I have to get up and send my poor Jared out to knock on the doors of strangers! I know he worked hard, but I don't think that we will do it again--at least that is my hope! I am just so glad that he is on his way home and he can never knock another door again if he doesn't want too!!!!

Lake Powell

Swimming with Grammie

Bree and Dax

The day after Ryan and I flew home we left for Lake Powell. We left at 4:30 am so that we could be on the boat by 9am! Luckily Ryan slept the whole way! It was a lot of fun but a lot of hard work too! Every day was really hot, and there is no air on my parents house boat. The only relief we got was to get in the water and swim a lot! Good thing Ryan also loves to swim! She kicks her legs and just goes crazy--she just doesn't like to be splashed at all! I just had so much fun with her in the water!

Mall of America

We finally found some time to get out as a family and see some of Minnesota! It was kind of fun to see the Mall of America; although it's just another mall! It may be huge and have roller coasters, a wedding chapel, and an aquarium, but seeing it once is all I needed. My favorite was the Lego Land! The pictures say it all!
