Sun & Swimming

The weather here has been gorgeous lately. In order to celebrate the beautiful weather we took a big bike ride out along the provo river trail to Utah Lake. After riding in the scorching heat, even the mucky lake was irresistible. 

Johnny, kindly enough, volunteered to jump off the bridge first.




Here's to sunny days,

Oh green couch...how we missed you.

During our two months of traveling the green couch had a little adventure of its own with a temporary owner. That's right, we left our green couch with the woman who moved into our old place. No worries, she kept very good care of it and as soon as we were back it was settled into our new home. 

Not without the usual exhausting process, however. Yes, you guessed it--we sawed off the legs and shoved that baby through the window again.

Johnny proved to be the most effective measuring device out there in seeing whether the green couch could fit through our door.

After removing the front door from its hinges and a little bit of couch shimmying, we finally got it inside, without going through the window might I add.

The legs are glued, the couch is sturdy, and we love it maybe even more than we did before. They do say, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

We sure hope that you find something you love so much that you'd saw off its legs...

Growing up may be over rated...but birthdays aren't!

The other day I came home from work to find Isabel all dressed up with a white balloon and a rose for me. When I walked inside I found a spotless house, and a huge sign in our bedroom with a list of everything she loves about me.  

Even though I'm positive my birthday was more than a month ago, it didn't take much for her to convince me that we needed to celebrate immediately.

She then took me out to Lunch and treated me like a king for the day. 


These multiple birthdays are something I could get used to.

Until my 3rd, 23rd birthday,

Shut Your Pie Hole...

Johnny and I really should be shutting our pie holes...considering there was an entire pie in our kitchen a few days ago...and it has been quickly decreasing in size...we may have invented a new meal called "post breakfast dessert"...the perfect start to any day. 

Our pie was Marion Berry and we used this (click here) recipe for the crust. It was delicious, and has tasted even better the second...and third...and fourth day after. 

We'll let you know if the same goes for tomorrow morning,
