*Summer Happenings*

During Cody's 7 week break from school we managed to find a lot to keep us busy. We vacationed with both my family, and Cody's. Cody was a groomsman for one of his best friends from childhood while I did his beautiful brides hair and makeup. Cody shot an elk that will keep us happy with meat for at least a year. And we still had time to do our normal hikes, camping trips and swimming with friends. This is a picture of Shane and India, they are so adorable together. Shane and Cody have been best friends since the 4th grade, so this was a really great day for us to be a part of. Another picture of the beautiful couple.


This is Cody with his elk, last year while hunting Cody shot at a elk and it got away so he was determined not to let that happen again. He worked his tail off practicing shooting with his bow from different distances. If anyone deserved to get a great elk like this it is definitely him. We are so blessed that he was able to get this elk so we will not have to worry about buying meat. fun fact: Did you know that elk meat is actually more lean and has less fat then chicken? Crazy eh....

At the end of September my mom and I went to San Francisco where we did all of the fun touristy things. We went and hung out at Pier 39, took a tour of Alcatraz, we had a city tour and we also drove to Napa Valley to see all of the vineyards. We had a great time and it was really nice to spend some girl time with my mom.


This is me in one of the cells at Alcatraz...





Cody me and our friend all made a trip out to this place called Monkey Rock, it is outside of rexburg. Way pretty but kind of boring. haha...




Earlier in the summer we decided to go camping at Cliff and Wade lake outside to Island Park.
This is a picture of Dan (Cody's cousin) Cody and Jones waiting to go on the rope swing.





Ok this is seriously the funnest thing in the world to do when you go boating!!! Surfing!!! If you haven't tried it yet I highly recommend it! We had a blast and cant wait to do it again. Cody couldn't find his swim trunks so he borrowed a super old pair of his dads, they were a little bit shorter and it drove Cody crazy so to be funny he decided to roll them up even shorter to show off his white legs haha...







So much funnnn...










You know how much Cody and I enjoy hiking and summer just wouldn't be summer without a few good hikes, so this hike we went on with Dan, Maurie and Leonard (Dan's dad) outside of West Yellowstone. The views were amazing and we hiked all day! : ) LOVED it!



So that wraps up our seven week summer vacation! <3 yall!
