Bragging Rights...

My hero on the ski...Clint. I never get sick of watching him ski.

Nate, also amazing...isn't that wall of water awesome?!

And me...notice, no dry suit baby...haha! That's right boys and girls, I pretty much rock!!

Ok, so one more post I didn't get to last night. Yesterday between conference sessions we headed out for one more ski. Cold? Very. Worth it? Oh SO worth it. Skiing is our favorite thing to do, mt. biking is a close second, but on the days I get to water ski are THE best days. Yesterday it was so cold that we decided to pull out the dry suit. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit's a large. I was determined to ski and had been looking forward to it all week, so my rash guard was just going to have to do. Three of us skiied, Clint, Nate Hastings and me...the only girl, and the only one who braved the cold water without the dry suit. I'm pretty sure that calls for some serious bragging....don't you think?!

Girls night at Union Grill

Tonight was the priestood session and while the boys were gone the girls headed to Union Grill for some killer pasta and bread pudding. Haven't been there for ever, I had forgotten how much I love that place. My Grandma Judy, Aunt Michelle and her two girls Morgan and Ellie were down for a quick visit while Morgan looked into the Art Institute of Salt Lake City for culinary school. It was good to see them again. Twice in one year too...that never happens!

Kings Peak

The boys headed to Kings Peak for three days. Back packed in, hiked up, and packed out. They were really crunched for time so the hike from base camp to the peak that usually takes most of the day they did in 5 1/2 hours. Finished in record time! Not going to lie, I was pretty jealous I wasn't invited, I have never been back packing and really want to go. Now that the waters have been tested on this hike I think it is a must for me next summer! 40 lb problem!

REAL soccer game

When Clint was off back packing to Kings Peak with his Dad and Bro's I was enjoying a killer REAL soccer game in SLC with my family and bro's girl friend. This was the best REAL game I have ever been to. First half, REAL down by one. Final score, REAL 2 away team 1. The scoring was awesome, the new stadium is amazing and the crowd was out of control. The post game fireworks also rocked, but I have decided watching fireworks without my man just isn't that fun.

Moscow Idaho-Grandparents 50th Anniversary

My Grandparents 50th Anniversary was this summer....wahoo to them! We went up to visit for a few days to celebrate. Our weekend involved games, our attempt at family pictures (which I think turned out pretty good), and another of my favorite places...Coeur d'Alene Lake. My uncle has a cabin on the lake, the view is amazing! Love this lake, to bad the weather was as cold as it's been all summer when we were up there!

Wasatch Crest Trail

Another favorite is this amazing trail...the Wasatch Crest. Killer terrain, lots of smooth single track and really amazing views and scenery. Highly recommended! We actually just did this ride for the second time last week and the leaves were so beautiful! But alas, we forgot the camera....what's new!

Lake Powell 2009

This is our favorite place on the planet, best vacation destination...lake powell. It's a shame we don't make it down more often. Just wanted to give a huge thanks to Mama and Papa Child for yet another fantastic trip to powell!

Picture taken right before our early morning ski...ah, love it.

The crew. Childs, Costleys, Ames and Blake Montgomery.

My husband the sailor. And yes, that is our bed sheet...

This is what the boys came back to the night they ditched us to go night surfing.

The man who has taught us all to ski, some how we always get the best pictures of him.

Horse shoes, the boys played everyday. The day before we left we had a tournament...congrats to Kip and Camille who beat the Jed and Blake....the boys who claimed the prize was theirs before the game began.

Day 4. No sleep, all play=3 hour nap.

The pro surfer.

The wanna-be pro surfer...

This is the paddle board we played on everyday...I love these!

The ferry we took to see the USS Constitution. (part of the freedom trail, basically a history line that takes you through to city ending at Boston Harbor)

MIT, the reason we went to Boston. We took a tour of MIT to give Clint an idea of as far as grad. school goes. Super cool, campus runs right along the Charles River.

Stata building on MIT campus. They call this the Dr. Seuss building, it's huge.

The dome building on MIT campus. This is where most of the 'hacks' are done. (hacking=pranks, MIT started 'hacking' before it ever became a computer term) One of the best hacks was a group of MIT students took an MIT police car apart, somehow got it on top of this dome and then rebuilt it...all in one night. If you watch any news, the Hubble telescope has been a big deal lately with it's last launch and everything. A week and a half ago students built a replica of the Hubble and put it on top of the dome. Other years it has been covered in black with cut outs of eyes and a mouth. Kinda cool, even cooler that the school encourages students to do hacks. ( as long as it doesn't hurt property or people)
