Summer in Review

I can't believe July is almost over! This summer has gone way, way too fast. We've been so busy it seems there has been no time to breathe. Thank goodness everything has slowed down for a week or so, but as soon as the second week of August hits, it picks right back up, starting with a wedding I'm photographing. Here's a quick recap of what we've been up to lately. I'll post pictures later when I am on the computer that has them. (By the way, that's my father-in-law still rocking the water skis at 57!)

-Amanda and David came to visit for two weeks the beginning of this month
-Island Park lake house trip with Mike's family (best lake trip to date!!)
-Lots of time spent running (me)
-Lots of time spent doing schoolwork (Mike)
-Lots of time spent doing things with friends
-Photo shoots, what's new?
-Date nights

August should bring just as many adventures, if not more, seeing as how we are in the middle of planning a getaway with another couple we're really good friends with. In the meantime, it is nice to finally have time to relax, clean house, and attempt to get caught up on the massive amount of photo editing I have to do.

Quail Fire on the Fourth of July

 I have so much blogging to catch up on it's not even funny! But, that probably won't happen until later in the month when things slow down a TINY bit.

David and Amanda are down visiting until the 11th, so it has been a busy past week. Yesterday we took advantage of the holiday and slept in (no construction going on right outside, yay!), then went and saw Spiderman, which we loved! Since none of us were feeling up to fighting the crowds in Provo for the fireworks, Mike and David played a little Xbox at home while Amanda and I headed up to Alpine to watch the glow of the flames from the Quail Fire. It was incredible to watch, and as Mike puts it, "terrifyingly beautiful." There were several close family friends that nearly lost their homes, one lost their barn (which was sad because they let me and my sister in law go do photo shoots up there). More pictures of it are coming soon, when I have a little more time!

Anyway, I'm off to go running! Hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth!
