Two Years

Happy Anniversary to my best friend!
Kevin has made married life such an easy transition for us. He is so willing to do anything and everything to make sure I am happy. I am one super lucky gal to have such a loving husband who supports me, picks up after me, and listens to me jabber on and on.
Life is great.
Thanks so much Kevin for all that you do for us!

Kevin and I ordered a bed back in April from a wonderful place called Gardner Village south of SLC. We are slowly acquiring the entire bedroom set over time because that is a little easier on our bank account. Since they only deliver in the Valley, my grandparents brought it up to us this past weekend. They have also been wanting to visit the Bar J Chuckwagon. They had seen them in Midway for Cowboy Poetry and had been wanting to visit their ranch and see the show. We got season passes to Yellowstone the previous weekend and decided to make a day trip. We traveled along the southern route of Yellowstone, passing by Old Faithful, continuing through Teton National Park, Jackson and ended at Bar J for dinner and a show. It was a great day and we saw more buffalo than the previous week! We really enjoyed Bar J. The dinner, music, and show was great! We will definitely be returning.

Memorial Day Weekend

Last weekend, despite the forecast for crummy weather, Kevin and I decided to go to Yellowstone. I was asked to work on Monday for a few hours, so we chose to go on Saturday, which worked well. I'm guessing the threats of rain kept a few people from traveling there for the long weekend. We wanted to take a different route, so we began driving north towards Canyon Village (Mammoth Springs was closed, we are assuming due to snow). There was still so much snow in the park and to top it off it was snowing. We knew we'd see no animals if we kept going this way so we went south towards Old Faithful and we ran into 3 or 4 herds of buffalo! We were pretty excited about it and had a great time together.Some brave people were fishing in the river just behind these buffalo!

For Memorial Day I worked in the morning so Kevin and I could have the afternoon together. We originally wanted to hike R mountain but the weather was very windy and rainy. We decided to post pone the adventure for better weather. We played games and baked banana bread. Kevin had never had icing on his banana bread and apparently it is not common to do that. I thought it was normal since my mom always had done it when she did it. I made some cream cheese icing that was wonderfully fattening and Kevin seemed to like it. It was an easy and enjoyable weekend. Hope everyone had a great one also!
