Man, has this summer gone by fast!! Can you believe it's already half way over?! Let's also talk about how awesome these summer thunderstorms have been! Luckily Frank can hold his own with loud noises (thunderstorms & fireworks). He handles them like a champ!
Ian and I are lucky to be able to split our summer 50/50. Half here in Utah and the other in Boise. New adventures await us. But in the mean time, here has what has been happening lately!
Ian did the Utah Spartan Race a couple Saturdays ago and killed it! He is a beast! Little does he know that because he has proven he can handle 27 obstacles while running 12+ miles in around 4 hours, he automatically gets dibs on midnight diaper changes... (WHEN THE TIME COMES... Slow down there moms. We got a few more years.)
After our ride on the 4th, we spent time with Ian's family. We had a BBQ and decided to check out the local festivities...
Not ONLY did I get my caramel apple...(Must have at carnivals....AM I RIGHT?!) but we also rode some rides. Oh, and just an FYI if you are in the market for prime "people watching", carnivals and fairs are the place to be...believe me, we found some gems.
Well early Friday morning Ian's dad took Ian and I fishing. We attempted to fly fish, Ian's dad is a genius at it, but sadly we only caught these little guys....
Franklin was an awesome sidekick, but mostly he stood around waiting for us to reel a fish in so he could play with it.
Later Friday evening Ian and I headed up to Payson Lakes where we had my Pugh family reunion. My parents were in charge this year so each of my immediate family were assigned an activity. I wasn't going to say anything, but I am pretty sure my water balloon relay was the highlight of the trip.
Home away from home
Ian and I were planning on staying until Sunday, but we decided to head to Fairview Saturday evening where Ian's parents were visiting his grandma. It would have probably been our last time visiting her before we headed up to Boise, so we thought it would be fun to surprise them by just showing up. It was probably a good thing we left when my parent's did. What do you get when you have a 1974 motor home, 2 manly men and a broken fuel pump?...
Well, you get this view....
Pops and Ian greasing up their elbows. Does it count if my mom and myself supplied them with gatorade and words of encouragement?
Well back to work I went on Monday and Ian studying his brains out for his licensing exams. But Mark (Ian's dad) wasn't satisfied with the pathetic fly fishing we did on Friday. Who am I kidding, I wasn't either! So off we went up to the Provo River, where we caught a few more decent sized trout and I honed in on my casting skills...which still need alot of work. I think I was whacking the water so hard, it split like I was freaking Moses.
Met a new friend...this beaver was brave enough to swim right infront of me... pretty lucky he didn't get whacked by my rod while I attempted to cast.
We have really enjoyed ourselves so far this summer and cant wait to see what awaits us in Boise. You guys still have time to give us a ring before we head up! We love you all!
