Apologies dear internet. I have not posted in ages. I have been doing exciting things, but I didn't have any pictures to share. Anyways, pictures of our adventures are forthcoming. A while back we went on a camping trip with our friends the Fiebers. It was great fun! Adam taught us to fish and Jamie kept the mosquitoes away from us by graciously letting them all stay around her. Here are the pictures Jamie sent me:This is me and Bryce in the beautiful Unitas, preparing to build a big fire, surprise!This is Bryce and Adam, having just slain the beast they are preparing it for a sacrifice. This is me and Bryce and my fabulous fish. I remember it being bigger than that... probably it just looks small in the picture...I have really big hands remember? Thanks Fiebers!

Timp Trip
This weekend Trent, Bryce and I hiked Mt. Timpanogos. It was so much fun! We left at 1:00 so we could get to "the saddle" before the sun came up. It was Trent's first time and he was probably pretty worried by the fact that we got lost several times. (I was worried!) Despite our scenic route we made it to the saddle well before sunrise, and happily no one died along the way.
This is the three of us at the summit before we slid down the snowfield. (My favorite part, not including the foot-rub after the hike was done.)This is Provo (the orangey lights) and Orem (the white lights) seen from the saddle before sunrise.This is us at the saddle . This trip was kind of dorkishly significant because two years ago , before we were dating, we did this hike and ended up getting together the next week. When we hiked it two years ago I nearly died because someone told me the hike was "9 miles" and I thought they meant 9 miles round trip. I wasn't really mentally prepared for the second half of the the climb, in fact pretty much the only reasons I kept going were: 1. I had a huge crush on Bryce and I didn't want him to think I was a pansey. 2. They promised me we could take a nap at the top and I really really really wanted a nap; bonus cuddles with Bryce made it all worth it :)This is a picture from two years ago of Mikey, Nicolas, me and Bryce in the same spot that the picture above was taken.
