The past few weeks

Hello again! It's crazy busy around here. I was out of town the past couple of weekends. Where did I go? Let me tell you.

Two weekends ago, Mark and I took a trip to Capitol Reef National Park to celebrate my birthday. We traveled with some friends (Larissa and Shannon) and enjoyed perfect weather and beautiful scenery. Hiking, spending time with friends...gotta love it. I love being able to get away from it all by just by driving a few hours away from Salt Lake City. There are so many fun places to go right in our "backyard". One of our hikes was in Muley Twist Canyon - the desert plants were blooming, and it was all very pretty.

Another hike was to Upper Calf Creek Falls. Simply beautiful!

Last weekend, I went with Katie, Larissa, Shannon, Eileen and Grace up to Logan for the Little Red Riding Hood bike ride, an all-women's cycling event. Usually, this is a great time. Last weekend, however, was just a tad cold! I was so freezing! It ended up being quite miserable for me. On the plus side, though, our group did win the costume contest!

Today I attended a bridal shower for my friend, Hailey. She's getting married this August, and I'm so happy for her!

And next weekend is the Wasatch Back Relay! I'm so looking forward to this event...being over. Yikes. My goal is to survive.

Since I'll be starting school at the end of August, I'm planning the rest of my summer - a few weekend trips and some projects around the house. I'll be sure to keep you updated on these very exciting events!

You're just amazing. Somehow I need to catch some of yours and Mark's enthusiasm for outdoor sports.

The costumes are darling. Of course you won.

How did I miss your birthday, yikes! Sooo sorry. We'll make it up.
Love ya, Becky

Sounds like you are having fun. Did you hike Upper Muley? I love that hike, but can be a bit tiring carrying a little boy on your back on all the uphill.
Congrats on the bike ride, run and to Hailey- I wish I could be there.
Take care!
