2 months to go...

The countdown has begun. In 2 months I will be DONE with nursing school. Which is very exciting but mostly VERY SCARY.
In the meantime I have been visiting my family..
in Arizona...

and at the beach in Oregon...

In August Hang and I went to the beach and it was grand.

And in Vegas, me and Alex know how to laugh. And here is the proof.

I never want summer to end

The last two weeks have been a blast.
I went to Disneyland with these people...

where we got stuck on this ride...

and we even got to go here...

where I was my usually classy self. The toilets were amazing!

Then Grace and Joe got married and everyone was happy about it!!

We were especially happy to eat such amazing foods. I was stuffed for days.

I ended up in Oregon and got to see everyone I love..
We had a bonfire for my liver,
Went to the beach,
Played in some rivers,
Ate some donuts...

and I got to spend some quality time with this girl!

summers are always too short.

summers are for hiking

Me and marge went hiking in Zion yesterday and hiked the Hidden Canyon trail. We never saw the arch they promised, but I feel like we employed some great rock climbing skills. My goal is to hike all the major trails before I move away.

summers are for beaches

A few weeks ago I went to California to visit the Romney's.
Choody is such a good mom. I don't know how she does it. Her kids are so much fun!

We went to some fun tide pools and Miles learned all about sea urchins. Also, he fell into a tide pool which was pretty funny.

The kids flew some kites.

ANd last weekend I visited my family and friends up north.
Jonah is an adorable butter-ball.

We also went cherry picking last weekend. It was gorgeous and wonderful.

Some things I love in Thailand

This little girl was peeling mangos and feeding them to us. She was sassy and adorable.

We stayed with a family in the country. They are so wonderful. In the morning we took a walk to their "garden", which is really the jungle. Mom gathered some mushrooms and leaves and we ate them for lunch.

This is Joe. He speaks less English than I speak Thai but it did not deter him from talking to me constantly for 24 hours. And he loved taking pictures with my camera.

This is what Chiang Mai looks like from the back of an elephant.

So much beauty.

Summers are for vacations

I can't wait for summer!! For starters, I'm going to Thailand for a few weeks, Gracie is getting married in California, Leah and I are going to Oregon, and I plan to camp and hike and go to Vegas and visit choody and be outside all the time. When I'm not working of course.

In the meantime, I am loving spring in southern Utah. Leah and I went hiking in Zions and stopped by Virgin, Utah on the way back.

And this is pretty much how I spend the rest of my time. Sunning on red rocks like a lizard.

ANd sometimes my nephews stop by!

My dad sent me these pictures. Yes, it is a toilet. But it is not just any toilet. It is the one I sat on for 18 years of my life. Yes, it is pink.

Rest in Peace.

where angels land

Some dear friends were in town this weekend. We decided to hike in Zion National Park.

Even the drive out there was beautiful.

We hiked Angels Landing. We weren't exactly the most prepared hikers that morning. We didn't realize the amount of snow/ice that would still be on the trail.

We took many breaks to enjoy the scenery and take fun pictures.

The view at the top was amazing and beautiful.

We celebrated with sushi afterwords. It was a great day.

Thanks for taking amazing pictures, Erin! Let's do it again soon.
