End of Summer Festivitiessss

Things have seriously been so so busy!! This weekend we did not do a single thing because we felt like we had been going going going non-stop! Not that I am complaining cuz we have had a blast--just busy! Last weekend we had alot of fun. We decided to go on another hike! woo! We hiked up to timpanogas cave with Tiffany and Clint. It was a ton of fun, but unfortunately we weren't able to get the cave tour. It was sooo packed that day and by the time we got up there the cave tours were sold out!! It was definitely a bummer!---Yet, we still managed to have a great time!! We have a ton of fun hanging out with Tiffany and Clint. They are so crazy, but we love them anyway! The hike seemed SO much easier than when I hiked up the Y with Dustin. Maybe because it was like ten times hotter than minus shade period! There was a tonn of shade on this hike and we were at a much higher elevation so it definitely made a big difference! It was about time I got another work out! And well, Dustin I think has pretty much figured out that I am not yet ready to do the biggg mount timp hike so he is slowly, gradually trying to prep me! haha.

At my work they gave us Lagoon tickets where we can get 8 people into lagoon at the prive of 20 bucks per person. So, we decided to take advantage of that and take last Monday off so we could enjoy a day at Lagoon. It was definitely worth the trip! Me and Dustin decided to have Tiffany and Clint come along with us. However, Clint couldn't make it until a little later cuz he had to work--but we still managed to have a great time! We spent most of our time at Lagoon A Beach while the sun was still out. The lines were a little ridiculous--but I guess that is only expected. I have to say I have been to better water parks than that but then again that was more of a theme park than a water park. However, Dustin sure did loooove the water park. That boy would live on a water slide if he could! haha, he is like a little boy whenever there are any water slides in view. He absolutely LOVES them!! It makes me laugh. :) Then as the afternoon went on we decided to call it quits at the water park and go ride some real rides!! Tiffany was soo determined to ride all the roller coasters that she had us RUNNING from ride to ride! She was soo intent in getting them done! It was hilarious. Dustin was literally like, dragging me and Tiffany was literally, like, dragging Clint. It was quite the amusement. We decided to leave Wicked, the new Lagoon roller coaster for last...and we did...and it was definitely a GREAT way to end the night! But mannnn, the anticipation while waiting for that ride was intense!! There is a huuuge 90 degree angle of a drop and watching that was making all of us crazyyyy! And, the fact that the line was so outrageous did not help at all! We finally got there and holy crappp we were freaking out!! And then it doesn't just ride you slowly up the first big drop like most roller coasters do--it...shoots you up like a rocket!! It was sooo crazy! But soooo fun!! The most twisty coaster I have been on in forever! wow! it was grrreat!! Perfect way to end the night! (:

Sooo, I don't know if it was Lagoon, or just having a crazy busy outdoorsy weekend but mannn the rest of the week was exhausting! It was soo hard to make ourselves get up by 6am for the rest of the week. We managed. Mostly. hah. But yea things have been crazy busy but we have been enjoying every minute of it! Speaking of work, it is going pretty well. However, things are starting to look just a littttle sketchy. It's kinda scary with this job cuz you just really never know when we are going to finish a project...and if there will be another project waiting for us...Usually not the case. :-/ It tends to take a few days or maybe even weeks for them to find more work once one of the big major projects are finished. ANNND, it is getting to that point again. We are about done with the big project we have basically been working on all summer long and well after Labor Day weekend we just really do not know what to expect. SOO we are crossing out fingers!!

Well this weekend we just randomly decided to take a trip to Mesa, AZ for Labor Day. I know, it seems like we just left from Mesa, right? haha. Well, we did. Maybe a little over a month ago but we just really miss Dustin's sister! So, yesterday we just had a spur of the moment idea to go to Arizona for the weekendd!! Why not?? ha. SO, that is what we are doing for Labor Day. We are actually really excited! We had a ton of fun with Tricia while we lived down there so I guess we have just been having withdrawals from being away from them now. Ha, I must say I am pretty lucky! I have awwwwesome in-laws! I love them!! They are always so much fun! So we are wayyy excited! Thennn back to school for Dustin! He is actually really excited to get back into school. Probably because he is starting his Major courses. He is taking 2 Computer Science classes and very excited about them. However, he does know he most likely wont like them at first..but we is glad he is finally getting into it so he can get through the hardest part...LEARNING IT! But yea, he is realllly hoping for a good intern this Summer so he is ready to work his butt off this year! So, we are looking forward for this year and in the meantime, I am trying to find me a second job! Dustin and I get off of work at our current job at 2:30 every day so it gives us a whollee afternoon and evening to do whatever, well thus far it has been great having the rest of the afternoon off--but now as soon as he gets off he will be rushing off to classes for the rest of the evening. So, what am I gonna do?? Oh, that's right! Find another job! :) Plus, we could really use the extra money with everything we are paying for currently, so hopefully I will have success! Hopefully all this busy-ness I keep speaking of...will only continue!!
