Bachelorette Party, Transformers, and Derby Cars

Well...we haven't been doing much lately. Just hanging out at 7 Peaks, working on the Derby car, playing softball, and working. So I guess we have been doing a lot! Luckily coed softball is over, so I am done, but Cameron still plays on Mondays. The derby car is coming a long slowly, and is now parked on my brand new patio! And many of you know how OCD I am, and can probably guess that is totally driving me INSANE!!!

Jenn's bachelorette party was on Friday night. And I debated for days whether to go or not. I decided to go and it was so much fun!! I had a blast. I was the only one not drinking so I was the driver, but I didn't mind because we had so much fun at Harry O's dancing!

So Transformers was AWESOME!!! I can't even say how much I love Shia. He is so awesome. I never would've even watched Transformers because I am totally not into those kind of movies, but I did because he is in it, and now I love it! I seriously love him!

I am so excited for a lot of movies coming out soon....

~ Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
~ The Time Traveler's Wife
~ GI Joe ( only because Tatum Channing is in it) and of coarse
~ New Moon!!!

Redneck Woman!!

So as a lot of you have now heard...I am going to drive in the Heber derby! Some are a little concerned that I may have a slight panic attack. Seeing as how I have them when on leisurely Jeep rides with the Epps'! But I am way excited! This is my beautiful car. It is an 86 New Yorker. It is actually kinda cute, it even has a sun roof, which we will be covering in case I get flipped on my top! At this point we are stripping it. Apparently that means you have to take everything out. Everything really meaning seats, dash board, lights, windows, etc. It is actually kind of fun, I worked on cutting all the wires the other night. I am kind of debating what color to paint it. Obviously pink is totally the way I want to go...but then I might look to girly and people will go after me. So now I am thinking like bright purple with silver flames! You have to have the flames, or it wouldn't be redneck enough!

So this is the car from the front...those red things are the horns. Apparently that's what they look like underneath! Just looks like a souped up bike horn to me.

This is me in my "work on the derby car" clothes, working on the derby car.

And this is my face after working on the car. I was so proud to be able to show that I actually worked, and I actually got dirty.

Lexi turns 4!

Lexi turned four on June 1st! I absolutely can't believe I have a 4 year old! She shouldn't be this old, it is so crazy. We had cake and ice cream with all of the family the night before. And the next day I took her and Ellie to Build a Bear. It was so fun for them! After she got done opening all of her presents from the family, we brought out the Barbie Jeep we got her. It was all put together and ready to ride. Except...she didn't want anything to do with it! She had minor meltdown when everyone told her to get in and go for a ride. In fact...she told me to take it back to the store! After everyone left, she decided to take it for a spin, and now I can't get her out of it. Lexi's birthday is always the kickoff to our summer, and this year I think it's gonna be fun. We bought season passes to Seven Peaks, and we plan on spending a lot of time there! Another thing that's gonna happen this summer is that I am going to drive in the Derby! YAY! I am so excited and just a little scared, but Rachel and I are going to have a blast doing it. So if you didn't get tickets, you need to find some so you can come watch me!

This is her standing by the Jeep pretending she likes it!

These two had so much fun a Build a Bear! It was so cute. I was kind of thinking "What the Hell am I doing bring 2 four year old girls here." Because they wanted swim suits, pj's, and furniture for their bunnies! But it turned out to be way fun. I told them they could choose where to go to lunch, and they chose the pretzel place in the mall!

When we got home Ellie came to play. They put their bunnies in the back of the Jeep and rode around for hours! It was so cute!

Jackson Hole

On Memorial Day Weekend we took off and went to Jackson Hole for a little trip. We left on Sunday afternoon, avoiding most of the Holdiay Traffic. It took us forever to get there because it was raining like CRAZY! And at some points we couldn't even see the road so we had to go way slow! I was so excited when we entered Star Valley, so I could get some cheese curds. And wouldn't ya know, they were closed because is was sunday! On Monday, we ventured to Yellowstone. Lexi was fascinated by Old Faithful and couldn't quite figure out how the water shot out of the ground. It took us all day to make the big loop from the South Entrance to Mammoth Hot Springs and back. And if you know Lexi, a whole day in the car can be quite entertaining, considering that she never shut up the whole time! We saw 3 Black Bears, about a Million Buffalo, some Elk, and a Fox. It was a lot of fun!

We asked a nice man to take this picture of our little family.

Lexi when we first got to Old Faithful. We got there just in time because we only had to wait about 2 minutes for it to go off. And it wouldn't have gone off for 90 more minutes had we missed it.

This big guy was right off the road! We pulled up right next to it and I could've slapped it in the ass! But before I took the picture I made Cameron pull forward a little so it didn't attack me!
