Picture Tag! If you're reading this, you're it.

The rules of the game: Go to your pictures folder and take the fourth picture from the fourth folder and post it. Its fun! :) Then give us a some details about the pic.

Ok, I have lots of pictures and I am crazy about organizing them into folders, so I actually had to click on my 4th folder and then my 4th subfolder and then my 4th picture. I was actually surprised there weren't more folders I had to go through.

Anyway, this is my mom on Christmas 2006. Um, this is at our house. In the living room. That is a plant in the corner, not the Christmas tree. I really don't remember anything about this picture. But I love my mom.

Jared came to visit for the weekend and we did lots of fun stuff, but somehow I only got pictures of a couple of things. Oh well. Most of these are from when we drove the Alpine Loop (scenic byway connecting Provo Canyon and American Fork Canyon).

Jared knew about this statue garden in Salt Lake that has a sphinx with the face of Joseph Smith, so we had to go check that out. It was such an odd place. It's called Gilgal Garden.

We also went to the Body Worlds exhibit (the one with all the human bodies), ran a 5K (Jared won 3rd place! but that didn't surprise me cuz I think he might be some sort of superhuman), and went to the BYU-UNM football game. It was a great long weekend (but somehow still not long enough).

Lake Powell

This past weekend, I finally got to experience the splendor of Lake Powell. I went with 7 friends and spent Thursday through Sunday boating, wakeboarding, camping, and exploring. It was hard to believe how wonderful the weather was, considering it was the end of September. It was perfect and beautiful. I'm kind of a sissy when it comes to cold water, so I thought the water was a little chilly, but it didn't keep us from having a great time.
