This past week I had the privilege of coaching 10 girls from the ages or 11-15 for beach volleyball.

We started out by practicing at the sports mall in Murray on their new sand courts (awesome). Then on Monday the 20th we flew out to Long Beach California. There they participated in a 3 day USA Volleyball Beach camp with some AVP Players (non of which I knew) but they learned a lot. Us coaches mostly snuck away and played on the beach or in town. Thursday morning Weston Flew into Long Beach and hung out with us. Good news is he didn't get burnt until Saturday when the girls played in the CBVA (California Beach Volleyball Association) tournament all day.

After playing lots of volleyball and almost drowning myself in the ocean we went to DISNEYLAND!

I haven't been there for almost 12 years and we had a blast. The only downside was that we woke up at 7 a.m and didn't get back until 1 a.m, then we had to get back up at 5 a.m to catch out flight.
Even worse than that, poor Weston had to go straight to camp on Monday and coach until 9 p.m. But we aren't complaining, just taking life as it comes. Especially since that was our first real vacation as a married couple!

One Rodeo and a Wedding

We had a semi eventful weekend. On Friday Weston and I drove down to Nephi Ut, and took part in the stampede rodeo. Before we went to the rodeo we ate dinner at the steakhouse (not one of the best meals I have ever had). Then we met our friends Annalee and Buck at the rodeo grounds and had a blast watching the calf roping and bull riding.

On saturday we drove down to Alpine and took part in Chris Hansen's wedding. I know, he is finally growing up and settling down. We had to sit in the sun for 40 minutes and melt before the bride even showed up. But the semi good news is I saw a few people from high school that I have not seen in years. It was like a small high school reunion. Brody Brown and his bride were there alone with, Andrew Gardner, Ischia Scott, Amy Draper, and the long lost Tim Madsen. We enjoyed some catching up and high school talk while Chris was paraded around for 1 1/2 hours to take pictures.

"At the Old Ball Game"

Last night Weston and I went to the Bees Game with My Aunt Kimmie and my Uncles Dave and Jeff. The Bees won 6-1 (I think) and we got to enjoy $1 hot dogs because it was 70s concession night! It doesn't get any better in the summer than this.

Happy 4th

Our fourth of July Started on July 3rd. We drove down and went to my Dad's house to go take the cows up Fairview mountain. We woke up at 5:30 and all met in Fairview. This was Weston's first time riding a horse that long, and we were both pretty sore, but he made it all the way up the mountain without complaint. The only bad thing is that we both go REALLY sunburned on our faces and his had got burnt (weird).

We spent the night in the mountains making a dutch oven dinner and playing horse shoes. There is nothing better than spending a few days in God's country carving your names in a tree. The funny part about it was that Friday night was a beautiful night and my dad and Wendy decided to sleep under the stars. At about 4 a.m. they were rained upon. On the fourth of July we came off the mountain and stopped briefly at the parade just to say that we went. After that we had a lovely BBQ at Todd Tree's house and Attended the Rodeo that night where I saw my long lost friend's Lacy and Cory.

At the rodeo it started to pour so we ran to our cars and parked at Sill's restaurant to watch the fireworks.

Sunday we spent trying to get caught up on life, and I spent 45 minutes bathing my fat, hairy dog, just to have him roll in the mud 1 hour later.

All in all it was a pretty good weekend!

Bree And Weston's day of Fun

Weston and I got to spend the whole day together Saturday. We ended up going to Daybreak and hanging out around the lake. We also went to the new temple out there and stood in its wonderful beauty.

Since I never update my blog when I should I also get to babysit our friend Stephen's dog at work. It makes the day go by so much faster. Her name is OG (original Gankster) but I am going to call her princess and train her to come to that name! She is my filler since i can't have a kid or a dog.
