But the next day, Sunday, it was nice and sunny. We got an early start and hiked up until there were no more markers in the woods. It wasn't a normal hike. It was more like if you were a character in Lord of the Rings, or some other such fantasy novel, and you were just traveling through a heavily wooded area. So it was actually pretty cool. Although, the higher up we got, the rockier it became so we were doing some serious rock climbing - minus the ropes. Anyway, we ate lunch up on top of one of the rocks and it was awesome. Later that night, we finally got the campfire going and ate some delicious s'mores. Anyway, it was all in all a great trip and I'm sad that camping season is pretty much over!
School has begun. I am in my last year at BYU. It's sad but at the same time I'm excited to be a college graduate - the first in my immediate family, by the way. I'm in a lot of great classes, doing a lot of reading. I'm working at the HBLL still, and hopefully will be getting a second job at the Provo Library in a week or two.
Brady and I are trying to make plans to do a Europe trip this summer. We are wanting to do it before we have kids because it'll be easier to move around quickly and go where the wind blows us. Hence the need for me to get a second job so as to fund the trip! It's all pretty exciting and I will try to keep updates on here more frequently than in the past. Until next time.

We've decided to go to St. George over 4th of July weekend to visit my grandparents. We're pretty excited about getting out of Provo for a weekend! We've been trying to go camping but the weather keeps not cooperating. It's sad. But we did get a bike hitch for our car and now we can take our bikes camping and to the beach! We are very excited.
In book news, I've been reading like a fiend. I finished up two books this weekend, one of them being The Warrior Heir the first in a triology by Cinda Williams Chima. It was fantastic! I loved it.
I went to the eye doctor last week and got a higher prescription. I used contacts for the 6 days it took for my new glasses to arrive and I liked them, they were just really uncomfortable! And they got worse each day I wore them. Regular contact wearers: does this get any better? Anyway, now I have my glasses and can see so much better! I had been wearing glasses with a prescription of -1 and now my glasses are -2 in the right eye and -3 in the left! That's about it for now. Congratulations if you got through it all!

His books are awesome. He is also doing the final Wheel of Time books (or, really, one book split into three). He has written Elantris, the Mistborn trilogy, and Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians. If you want a good, fun read, any of these titles will be great for you. Although, as a warning, they are all fantasy novels so if you're not into fantasy, you might not like them. Anyway, fun night! And here's my signed book.

Brady was practically salivating and jumping up and down wanting to go. So we sat and watched them for a while then went to the camp site. Setting up camp took no time at all. For dinner we made quesadillas on the camp stove and had chips and salsa. It was great. Here are some pictures from the trip.

Well, I never seem to have much to write about it, but I have fans who like to read what I have to say. So here I am trying to think of things to write. Which is funny because ideally I would like to write novels and stuff. In fact, I've started writing a fantasy novel with characters from my life. I haven't written much on it for a while though. I just finished Elantris by Brandon Sanderson, a BYU grad and now teacher. It was one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read! I just love to read! I wish I could just do it all the time. But school calls and I find that I have much less time to do outside reading. If you have any recommendations, I'd be glad for them!
