This is how we kick off Summer

This past week...
Maikal, Ben, Jesse, Brandon and I decided it would be a good idea
to celebrate the start of summer with a little Cliff Jumping!



The long walk to the cliffs.
So beautiful.


The Boys:
Maikal.Brandon.Ben.Jesse



As you can see, the river was
Flooded!! And cold.
In order to get to the cliffs,
one must swim.


Coldness+High dangerous River=No Thanks.
Mostly the coldness.


Monkey Men
I had the camera ready just in case
one, or both fell. That way we could have
some photo memory of it.


Brandon's turn




Jesse's Jump.



It's a long climb up to the top of the cliff.
I would say about 30 feet.
Yup...that's high.



Ben's Jump.


The Current was so strong, but Ben pushed through.




Brandon's jump.



Sasquatch Brandon


So happy he made it to shore, alive.

Our life as of late...

As everyone knows, once a couple is married they somehow
just fall off the radar for while.
I promised myself that we were never going to be
one of those couples.


Sure we don't see our friends as much due to:

-Moving into family wards
-Graduating from YSA
-Moving away
-Friends thinking "Oh they need time to themselves"
FYI People, we can ditch you anytime we want to have
some alone time, so don't worry about us :)


Here is a list of what we've been up to lately:
  • We are living in Magrath (just south of lethy) until the end of June. We will be moving to the North side of lethy in the government housing area July 1st.
  • We spend much of our time watching new tv shows such as Modern Family, Community, Vampire Diaries, and Scrubs. Our latest show we watch: No Ordinary family.
  • Just yesterday we purchased a board game called "Settlers of Catan". I honestly hate board games, but this one makes my adrenaline run! It is my newest favourite game.
  • We have a baby horse. He is so beautiful. All golden with a very light mane and a white stripe on his face. We've been trying to figure out a name for him for weeks. And last week I don't know what spiked my brain, but I thought of the most perfect name. He is hereby known as "Link" :) He is one month old and he loves a good head scratch!
  • If you are wondering about 'Thank-You Cards", we still need to start them. We are procrastinators....
  • Visiting family and friends
  • And of course the usual; eating, sleeping, and working.

So there you have it, our lives as of late.

To: Radelle Jensen

Radelle is my ever most beautiful and stunning cousin.
She has one of the kindest most generous hearts
in the Entire world, and when I say ENTIRE, it's the upmost truth.


Always Giving.
Always Sharing.
Always Caring.
Always Loving.
Always Loyal.
Always Fabulous.


Radelle was our wonderful photographer
and there is no doubt that she does amazing work.
Obviously.
Her company is called Eternal Reflections Photography.
Also by her side as another fabulous photographer in this company is
Kari Burgess. Simply Stunning.
They have been noted on countless occasions for their
fabulous work and spunky personalities.
Having Radelle as our photographer was definitely an
experience I hope everyone can have.


Maikal is not one for enjoying having his picture taken in a formal setting,
but as time went by, her mix of comedy, laughter, and positive attitude
disarmed even his reluctance. We both had a wonderful time
and we would do it again in a heart beat.


We cannot thank you enough Radelle for a
memorable experience full of fun and fabulous moments.
You're gift will be one we keep and cherish for a lifetime and more.
Thank you.

Major Blog Update.

We're MARRIED!!! That's right! Maikal and I were sealed together
for time and all eternity on May 14, 2011.
Best day of our lives so far.
The was so smooth and stress-free, I could hardly believe that was even possible.
I thought of all the things that could have gone wrong that day
and also what still needed to be finished.
But as the day went on,
I found everything coming into place as it should.

Special Thanks goes out to:

Our parents: Thank you for Maikal's Parents for making all the delicious food and for helping set up the gym. And for my parents. For making all the yummy desserts and also for helping to set up the gym as well.
Radelle Jensen: She did our wonderful photography and I absolutely LOVE them all! She is part of Eternal Reflections Photography and their work is simply Flawless.
Lindsay Lowry: She made all our flowers. So fantastic.
Hailey Stuckart: She made the incredibly awesome wedding cake. 5 thumbs up!
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen: They looked so spectacular and were a great help with the whole day!
Sydney Hutton: She made the super cool slideshow!!
Andrew Hall: Best MC ever.
Families: You have been a great support system through everything.
Friends: Dido.

We seriously could not have done any of this without our loved ones and we are so thankful for everything they do for us :)

Just to warn you, there are so many wedding pictures, we couldn't fit them all onto the blog, but here are our favourites!





Everyone looks so good in this one we are like professional models!
