My Life

Wow I am amazed at how fast life fly's by, a lot has happened to our little family. After we came home from Denver, Riley started getting thing going for crossfit so that we could be up and running by January.
I started a new job, instead of tutoring one on one with a kid, I now work at an Elementary school doing random things. Some of my responsibilities at work are small ESL groups (5th & 2nd grades) Recess lady, bath-rooming and math remediation. It's not the ideal job, but I like it.
About mid December we were able to start crossfit because we were affiliated and we found a location. Since we started the middle of the month we decided to make it free for everyone until the first of January. It has been a slow start getting equipment and people to come but it's coming. We are called CROSSFIT STOIC and are up and running. We love everything about crossfit and enjoy helping other people become fit.

Riley and I decided to have our own Christmas morning together before we went the shock's. I loved having Christmas together. Then we went to the shock's for christmas, we especially loved talking to Brady on the phone and hearing about his mission. Then later that day we went to the poulson's for another christmas. This was fun to see my family and to watch the nephew's and niece's act out the nativity.

Just after christmas we went to the cabin and had a blast snowmobiling and snowshoeing. These are just a few things that have happened to us the last few months.

At the end of October Riley and I went to Denver for Riley to get crossfit trained, so he can be a trainer. Lucky enough we were able to go stay with my Aunt and uncle Pam and Paul Gordon. So while Riley was in training all day I got to hang out with uncle Paul and he took me all over Denver. I was able to see a lot of the city that I have never seen. Paul and Pam took us out to eat and introduced us to some different food, which was actually good. We had a great time and Riley passed his training and test he had to take, now he can train crossfit classes. Thank you uncle Paul and aunt Pam for the fun times and letting us stay with you. It was great and I can't wait to go again.

Shock Girls night out!!!

In October I was lucky enough to hang out with my girl in-laws at snowbird. We got together on friday October 15 and went to the temple. Then stopped to do a little shopping and then we headed up to snowbird. There we ate dinner and had a fashion show on the swim suit we just bought. Then we dipped into the hot tub and hung out there to talk, Jamie, Tara and I stayed up for a while. Once we were cooked we went back to the room to watch a movie. The next day we took the tram up to the top of snowbird walked around there and then Jamie and I ran down the mountain, while the other took the tram back down. Tara had to head home, while the rest of us went park city to go shopping. This little night out was so fun, I had a blast hanging out the my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law. Thanks mom for putting it together and everyone for coming!!

Timpanogos Hike

YEAH.... I finally had the opportunity to hike to the top of Timpanogos peak, thanks to aunt Janet for putting it together. Janet, Heidi, some of Janet's neighbors and I went to hike timp at 3:30 in the morning. It took us about 4-5 hours to get to the peak and about 3-4 hours back. This hike was so much and a lot easier to hike than I was expecting. We saw lots of wild life as we hiked. I would love to hike it again next year, any takers?

The Start of the big hike!

The Hills are alive!!!

At the Saddle, trying to be tough! Didn't work though.

We made it!!!

It was so cold at the peak! Can you tell?

We were trying to be goats.

Lake Powell

Wow it has taken me a long time to up date my blog. Here is a few things that has happened since the last post.
We went to Lake Powell in the middle of August with Riley's family and some friends. It was so much fun. We did a lot of wake boarding, swimming, tubing, cliff jumping, hiking and surfing. We were lucky enough to be there for about a week on a house boat.
