Retaking the Zombie Shelter

I know you can't tell by the pictures, but the spiders were bad.
Nate and I got the zombie shelter cleaned out and fixed the roof together.

Trip to Crater Lake

We wanted to swim to the Wizard Island and hunt orc, but the water was so cold we chickened out.
There was a whole bunch of Chinese people visiting the site while we were there.
A sweet, old, Chinese woman stopped and looked at me.
She titled her head and said, "You are much beautiful."
Oh my goodness. That totally made my day!
Then Nate surprised me and started talking to her in Mandarin.
He thanked her told her that I was his love.
Totally made my day!!!

Grilled Pineapple and Turkey Burgers

I got a whole pineapple, cut it into spears and grilled.

I also cooked these yummy turkey burgers. Kal'el wasn't happy with his so he squashed it and then skewered it.

Nathan attended another Tiger Test.

 One of the girls on the test ended up with exhaustion from the heat so Nate carried his gear and her's up the mountain.

 Good Times

Trip to Redwoods

My husband thought it would be cute to take a picture of my behind.

Standing on a giant tree stump.

Clovers. We ate them. They taste like a sweet rhubarb.

Look! At how HUGE that tree was. That's me standing near the bottom.

We could totally live here. Easy.

Chased by a Bobcat in Provo Canyon

Nate was jogging through Provo Canyon, when apparently, this cat didn't like that he was wearing white socks with black shoes again. 

Image from

It was his socks or the fact that she had kittens. This mama chased him down the trail. Talk about running for your life.

Because my husband has superpowers he was able to outrun her, but all my friends in the Provo area, please be aware that bobkittens are usually born April-May and their mothers are very protective.

A Good Man

I'm married to such a good man. 
Nate saw a young couple stranded on the side of the road. He stopped to fix their car. He does this kind of stuff ALL the time. He's even come home from work hungry because he's given the lunch I made for him to homeless people. 
I know almost all his students because he's the kind of teacher that his students invite to their school plays, baptisms, graduations, etc.
It drives me nuts sometimes because I'm so selfish and I want him all to myself, but I have to remember, Nate belongs to God as well.

A Traditional Scottish Wedding

Our friends Vera and Chandler had a beautiful traditional Scottish wedding complete with the passing on of the claymore sword and adopting the bride into the groom's clan by decorating her in the clan's tartan.
