Hunting, Hiking, and Wisdom Teeth

Adam's cousin came into town to visit last week.  One of the activities they (well, we) embarked on was...

Jackrabbit hunting.

Do you see that? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 jackrabbits!

Oh, and this is because I was taking the pictures that night so I wasn't in any of them!

This weekend Adam and I went camping and hiking at Fossil Springs with some friends.  It was fun!  The water was FREEZING!  But it felt good after hiking 4 miles to the waterfall, and then 4 more miles back.

And Adam got his wisdom teeth taken out this morning.  Poor guy.  I think all four of his teeth were embedded.  Needless to say, he's still in a lot of pain.  But it went well and he is on the mend!  He had an awesome doc!

His teeth.

Celebrating the First of Many Years

Like I mentioned in my previous post, Saturday (June 4) was Adam and my first wedding anniversary.

He got me flowers!
 Aren't they so pretty??  He did good!

I kidnapped him on Friday and we went on a surprise getaway weekend to Phoenix.

We had dinner at this awesome restaurant:

 They even took our picture and emailed it to us!

Here's a close-up on that surprise "Happy Anniversary" dessert.

Adam says it was the best steak he has ever had.  Ever.  And he was surprised (about the weekend and dinner)!  Guess I done good.  :)

And the next day, our actual anniversary day, we went to a DBacks game with Adam's parents and his cousin who came into town to visit.  I wanted to tell the information people that it was our anniversary so hopefully they would make a big scene and announce it and whatnot.  Unfortunately that didn't happen.  Oh well.  At least the DBacks won!  Woohoo!

My co-worker/friend's husband insisted on saving the top of our cake from our wedding, so it has been sitting in their freezer for the past year.  Tradition is to eat the top part of your cake on your 1st anniversary...  We missed it by a couple days but we will be having it soon.  It will probably be gross, but I want to be able to say that we did it!  Haha.

Times Are A-Changin'

Hello my slightly neglected blog!  I just finished putting together the first family newsletter for my mom's side of the family (which was super fun!) so now is as good a time as any, especially since I'm in the informing mood!

Most recently, Adam and I moved last weekend to an apartment that is BIGGER (yay!) and closer to the U of A.  We had tons of help -- it only took 30 minutes to move our stuff out and 30 minutes to move it in!  It was awesome.  We're still living out of boxes but we're slowly getting things arranged and organized.  So far, we love it.

 Old apartment:
This is the Living Room; notice that tons of things are crammed in here -
Adam's desk, the keyboard, coffee table, couch (not pictured but to the right), Adam's Architecture stuff...

 Old apartment porch.
(And that window to the left is the bedroom.)

 Move-out day: Goodbye old apartment!

Move-in day: Hello new apartment!

At least those are empty boxes...

New apartment means new ward!  And this time a whole new stake!  Church on Sunday was a little sad, but we are excited for the new opportunities we will have and the new people we are going to meet and get to know!

Did I ever mention that Adam and I went to the Air Show (which was in Phoenix this year) back in March?  Well we did.  And we saw the Thunderbirds (they are awesome).  And I got a nice tan line from my watch.  I (kind of) wish I had a picture of that!


Adam applied to the Architecture program at the UofA!  We won't hear back from them to see if he made it in until July.  Boo.  But we're hopeful and optimistic that he will!  My husband is talented and smart -- he's pretty awesome.

And Adam's sister gradidated from high school, LDS Seminary, and the JTED nursing program!  Of course we went to all three ceremonies.  I'm just so proud.

And last but not least, this weekend (Saturday to be exact) is our very first wedding anniversary!  We will be celebrating.  But I cannot tell how because it's a secret.  Adam doesn't know!  Hehe!
