Our Rafting trip!

Notice the foot sticking up? That's my brother-in-law Corey. He was our guide and the only on the fall out.

I mentioned the rafting trip in the last blog entry but now that I've got some pictures, I though I'd add a little detail. Gina (sister-in-law) and her husband Corey (Matt's brother), Michelle (Gina's sister) and her husband Ed, Anne-Marie (Matt's sister) and Matt and I all went on the rafting trip on the Deschutes River in Oregon. We had s blast. I was terrified, but we'll be going on the same rafting trip again in another week and I'm sure I'll be less frightened by then. I'm the one in the green'll notice that you can't see me in all of the pictures. That's because everytime we hit a big rapid I sat in the middle and held on to Matt for dear life...hey, I didn't fall out! And you'll notice my adventurous husband has a huge smile on in most of the pictures. We had so much fun! Can't wait to do it again!

Summer far.

We went to Fort. Vancouver for fireworks and good music! We had so much fun!

Matt's office is coming together. They've gotten lots of the remodelig done and the sign out front looks great! I went and had Matt clean my teeth and do some x-rays...I have a few cavities which is a little embarrassing since my husband's a dantist. I should have perfect teeth right? haha It's funny...while we were dating I tried to get in the habit of know since I was dating a didn't really stick. I think he was a bit disappointed. haha

We all went over to Kim' for Father's Day. Matt's birthday was right around that time, so his dad got him a present. Matt's not even a father yet and he still got a present on Father's Day! haha

Trip to the zoo! We loved the hippo and the kids had fun in the petting area with the goats!

In Utah for Chris and Alecia's wedding. They did the ceremony outside and it was beautiful.

So, it's obvious that I'm pretty terrible at updating my blog. But I'm going to try harder...I think. Lots has happened this summer. Matt and I have had a blast. I got to go to Utah for Matt's cousin's wedding which was so fun. I got to spend time with my sister Kalin and my little nephew Dean which was wonderful. We've been on a rafting trip, where I thought I might die. I spent the day with the zoo with my niece and some of my nephews. We went to the baloon festival and had a blast on the 4th of July! We're going camping this weekend and to an amusement park with our good friends summer and Phil. haha We've enjoyed lots of movies and we love Red Lobster! haha Alright so our summer may not sound super awesome and full to everyone else but we're newly weds, so just being together is awesome and full. We're slowly making friends and really enjoying our ward here. Matt has a calling...drum roll please...Seminary teacher!!!! Woah! He's going to be great. He's such a great teacher...he teaches me so much just from our simple scripture study together. I'm excited for him...and I've even said I'd come in every once in a while and team teach with him. I have apllied to school at Clark College and can register for classes in a couple of weeks. I'm going full-time, hoping to get as much done before "other things" consume my time. I'm going home to NY in August for a week and I'm so excited to see my family. I sure miss them a lot. I hope this isn't too boring or lame to anyone...I'm new at this remember. And plus, if this was awesome at the beginning, you'd have nothing to look forward to. haha I'll put up some pictures from this summer so far.
