We left Rexburg on June 4th for or week long adventure. Our first stop was in Brigham City, Utah to visit Daniel's aunts and their families! While we were there, we played tennis and went mountain biking with Sherri, and ate curry and talked with Laura and Kevin and their family.
Then we went to Lagoon. Which was awesome! And a little frigid. It was my first time ever going to Lagoon, and we had so much fun riding on roller coasters! Wicked was the best - it was the only one that Daniel wanted to ride more than once. What can I say? We had a blast!
On Friday we went to Arches National Park, which was also awesome. We didn't go on any of the big hikes, but we did find out that you really have to hike a little further in to see the truly awesome arches. Like this one!
The last day of our week vacation, we went to Mesa Verde in Colorado. That was incredible too. We learned about the previously nomadic Native Americans who decided in 1200-1300's ish, "hey, this cliff looks like a nice place to live for a while!" So they built their houses out of the cliff, and they have been preserved very nicely.
On Sunday, we arrived in Los Alamos, New Mexico, just in time for Daniel to start his internship on Monday. After an entire week of traveling and doing amazingly fun things, we were both ready to relax for a bit and get back into business as usual. In a different state.
It's really kind of fun - I'm getting a taste of what it would be like to be a stay-at-home wife. I really hope it's more entertaining with children running around, but I'm really enjoying the time that I have to do all the things that I wish I could do when I don't have any time. This week I'm going to start working at the hospital, and I'm very excited for that.
