Happy Birthday Zach!!

Happy Birthday Zach!!!

I hope you get a Hot Rod.



Here is a cute picture from my shower in GA and some of our trip to Canada. We were able to recover pictures erased off our camera so if that ever happens to you, we know the answer! The first picture is of the Niagara Falls "Horseshoe Falls". This picture was taken from the Maid of the Mist boat. This is the view from Canada. The second picture is Chris and I on the Maid of the Mist boat. The 3rd is a beautiful building in Ottowa (the capital of Canada). I think it may have been one of the Parliment buildings. The last picture is of the CN Tower - the tallest structure in the world. We went up to the observation deck. They have a glass floor (more pics to come). It is over 1800 feet tall. Very cool.

Hope everyone is doing great. I had a fun time in GA and we are looking forward to Ez and Crystal coming to the big apple. We are counting down the days till Tex gets here...I'M READY!

hi everyone. This is my first blog. I like reading about happenings in the lives of the two most faithful bloggers. What's everyone else doing?
We're looking forward to Emmi coming this weekend. It will be a fun few days.
I started my Herbaceous ID class this week. I REALLY like my teacher. He's very knowledgable, passionate about the subject, and doesn't assume you know everything already.
I'm going to try to attach some pics from our trip to Colorado in June.
didn't work. I'll try again later.


Missing Out!

Wow, I feel like I am missing out on so much! I had no idea that Crystal had a birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CRYSTAL! I also wish I could have been at the Peachtree. For the Fourth, I went with two of my roommates, Ashley and Sariah, to Idaho Falls. We ate at Johnny Carino's (which is my new favorite restaurant, by the way). Then, we went and saw Bewitched. It was really cute. Then we went and "watched" the fireworks. We mostly just took pictures and sat there. The fireworks show wasn't very good. We only sat there for about 10 minutes and then we just decided to go home! It was still a very fun night! I was missing all of you very much, though!
Also, my roommate, Deisha, and I put together a ward soccer team. We had a game last week and we won 2-1. We didn't even have time to have a practice! I am really proud of the team! We have another game this week. I'll try to let all of you know how it goes! Keep me up to date on everything that is going on!


Happy Birthday MOM!!!

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday Dear Mom, Happy Birthday to You!!! Happy Birthday MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Melting Pot

For Crystal's Birthday dinner, we went to the Melting Pot. I must recommend this place to all. Probably the best Fondu I've ever had. I haven't had that much Fondu, so take it for what it's worth. They first bring out the cheese and you dip bread, chips, vegetables, and apples in the cheese. You can get different kinds of cheeses. Then they bring you your choice of salad. Then they bring the main course which is shrimp, chicken, sirloin, pork tenderlion, and steak. You cook this all yourself in different kinds of mixtures. Then comes the chocolate fondu. You again have your choice, I think we got a mix of white and dark chocolate and s'more's chocolate. They bring cheesecake, strawberries, pinapple, cherries, brownies, poundcake, marshmallows, and gram crackers to dip in the chocolate. It was amazing. A little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.


Happy Birthday Crystal!!!!

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to Crystal, Happy Birthday to You!!

ps. She's 24.

July 4th 2005 Lennox Fireworks

Crystal and I went down to Lennox to watch fireworks. Next year all of you please call me and ask me where the best spot is to watch them. We went to the top of a parking deck and probably had one of the best spots in the city. Not many people and perfect view of the Atlanta skyline. Next year we will do it right and take a grill and food up there and nice chairs. The fireworks show itself was amazing. The finale was so good and so fast and loud that we couldn't even see most of them because there was so much smoke. There was a cool breeze the whole time. Happy 4th of July!!

2005 Peachtree Road Race

Here are some of the pictures we took of the Peachtree Road Race. Brooks, Jacki, Crystal, and I took MARTA to the start. It was the most crowded I had ever seen. We all had a great time. The weather was perfect.
