The Fourth and Much More you Fools!!

We definitely have had an adventurous couple of weeks so far, out here in the Northwest. We spend Independence weekend with my extended family in Portland. We ate too much, laughed to much, created way too many good memories and inhaled too many voodoo donuts- we are pretty much perfect, what can I say?

Sam was continually volunteering to make s'mores, since that night he was definitely on his A-game with the whole "roasting mellows" gig (which just happen to be his favorite food.)

Katie and Ryan were the hosts of this magical evening. They basically took me and Sam on several wonderful adventures in the span of the weekend-river rafting, hiking, basketball and mo'.

Kelsey and Crew joined us for the night and as always their kids where so fun to have around.

The next day (the 5th) Sam didn't have work (THANK THE HEAVENS ABOVE!!!!) so all of us went on a leisurely hike around Silver Falls.

Then then next week Katie, Ash and Aubs came and spend some time on my turf. You know since I have been living here 2 weeks now- It is definitely my turf.

We even got to meet up with Sam in Pike Place Market after a business lunch. Isn't he just dapper. I am his nose picking wife (come on now!)

That weekend Sam and I celebrated being successful finished with 6 weeks of his internship. We went canoeing on Lake Washington. Then went shopping to H&M and ate one of our favorite desserts Red Mango.

The next day we went and visited his home town. The B-town Bothell. I was able to meet some old friends, neighbors, and I even got to see his old home, but only through bars of an iron clad fence (they had changed the home alot.) My favorite part was going to the local fruit market where all his siblings had worked in high school, well that was until the younger siblings had deemed that job unacceptable, socially. (ask Katherine Nelson)

Then Sunday we took a long nap, played games and ate dinner on the beach and came back home to have a fanciful dessert of Oreos and milk on our deck.

Life is good people, Life is good. Now I desperately need to go catch up on Bachelorette . . . What will happen next?!

I love the milk in the wine glasses. Everything is more fun with the Nelsons!! I loved this post. You guys are too much fun. Oh, did I mention we're moving to Alabama? Maybe, between you, me, and Whit, we can dominate the entire USA, and then . . . the world!!!

Dear Reagan,
I wish you lived by me... or I lived by you. You two have too much fun! Enoch and I are always talking about places to live and the Oregon Washington area always come up, so you need to give me the low down on things. Does it rain too much etc. P.s you guys are hot and you should know it and I remember you texting me that Sam's fam was moving to Santa Barbara- is this true and does this mean I will see you more often (these are important questions)

I totally miss you two. I am so happy that you'll be back in Provo for at least a few months before I have to follow your life via blog forever. Ok, maybe not forever, but it makes me sad to think of how much I'm going to miss you when you move away for more than a few months at a time... You two look like you are having a blast though! Love ya!

Katie Mae said...

Yeah, we are pretty much party animals! So, I haven't seen you in a week... WHEN ARE YOU COMING DOWN?!!!!

Eww! Bothell High looks crazy different. I hate that!
