Demolition Derby. Preston, ID.

I sent my dad pictures of us attending this event and his reply was "So, first Cam works in Walmart, then you move to a trailer park, and now this?" 
You might be a redneck if....
It's only a tiny bit embarrassing...

So, Saturday night after the race [yep, same day. go me], we hopped in the car and followed another couple up to Preston. We took a short cut and ended up getting lost for a minute. But that's how our short cuts usually end up anyways. You'd think we would know better. 
Yay for Idaho!
Lost in the car. Not our fault ;)
 Then, we found it! Go us! [In reality, we did nothing but drive behind Sheridan and Katie, but I'll take any credit where I can get it.]

We entered the world of mullets, bright pink goaties [ok, fine. just one.], newborn babies on the front row [no lie.], lots of dirt, loud crappy cars, and cheap entertainment.

It was Cam's first derby and he was a little concerned as to how fun this really was going to be. 
Once he picked his car for each heat, I think he fell in love a little. His inner redneck started showing and we had so much fun!

In the 2nd heat, one guy got hit so hard that he flew across the inside of his car and passed out. Ambulances always make for good stories. Sad, but true. They had to cut his out of his car. And I was mad because the firetruck thingy parked in front of our view and we couldn't even see! I'm so heartless. [The guy ended up being fine, by the way.]

Our favorite parts were definitely the grudge match and the championship round. 
These folks get a little crazy and go all out at this point. 
It is definitely awesome.
Until you're getting all into it and loving the smell of burning engine parts when the peeps behind you spill their coke. All down your back. 
Cam took it like a champ, but I would have been furious. 
And I was a bit bugged. Rude.
And then they say, "want some pizza?" to make up for it then don't feed you anything. Darn. 
Oh, well... At least they shared their napkins...

If you've never been to a demolition derby, go. 
It will definitely change your life. 
And you'll see a few mullets, too, which is always fun.

On the way home, I was STARVING. [ravenous may be a better word.]
So we stopped at Wendy's where I inhaled 6 chicken nuggets and they gave us free frosties! I'm all over free food. 
And I got to spend all evening with Cameron. 
So it was awesome.

The End.

TOU Half Marathon

Once upon a time I got really brave and I ran really far and for a really long time. 
It was hard. 
I kind of hated it.
Especially the dead skunk on the road around mile 5. Ew.
And the part where my legs hurt. And my lungs hurt. And my motivation hurt, too.
But I think I just might do it again.
Because crossing that finish line with Cameron and my mom waiting for me was the greatest feeling ever. 
Because I did it.

Nice and sweaty...

My friend, Amy, and I.

Me and Heather. She is awesome.

brigham city temple open house...

yesterday, Cam and I had the morning off together so we decided to take a little drive and go to the brigham city temple open house. it was absolutely beautiful! if you get the chance to go, please do.

i'm so thankful for temples and the blessings that we recieve from going to the temple. because of the temple, my family gets the opportunity to be together forever. because of the temple, i get to see my little sister again someday. for me, there is nothing greater, nothing more important, than being with my family forever...

ReAl Salt Lake!

Saturday, we went to a ReAl Salt Lake soccer game for our company's summer social.
We're not big soccer fans, but it was a lot of fun!

Go, team, go!

Thanks for a fun date night, AFCU!
