Vegas Vacation


So the people in Utah practice a ritual that might seem foriegn called it "Pioneer Day." To celebrate it we decided to go to Vegas and we are proud to say that not one hooker was harmed. We started off by getting a motel in Cedar City. Under parental counsil we were told that "no one ever tells the motel manage how many people you really have." So with these words of wisdom I told the nice lady motel manager that only two people would be staying in the motel for the night (when in fact Katie's sister Alice was along with us). Thereafter the nice lady walked around from her office and went to the glass door to see how many people were in the truck. When she saw that there were two girls in the truck, plus me, which added to 3 and not to 2, then confronted me. She pointed out her onbservation and at that point, I am proud to say, I was able to weive the most fantastic, (and one might say even beautiful) lie. I explained that I was going to stay with a mission budy who lived in town (I did have a mission buddy in town) and that I was getting the motel for the two nice ladies in the truck. Suspisionsly she asked me if there was any chance that I would be staying in the motel, and in a moment of weakenss I said I might. She explained that I would have to pay more if I did. At this point I decided that if she is going to imply that I was lying (wich I was ) then she could kiss my $42 bye bye. So I said "Well, I'll go talk to my buddy and if I can't stay there then we'll come back and we will pay for all three of us. Then with the little (if any) dignity that I had left, I left. We drove down the road and found an even cheaper motel, so suck it stingy motel lady. But I digress.
So we went to Vegas and stayed in an actually pretty dang swank downtown hotel. On Pioneer Day we started at the Stratoshpere and walked all the way down to New York New York. The hole day we walked about 14 miles, after which we decieded that we have experience Vegas would not be upset if we never came back.

Provo River Pictures

So we needed some pictures of us to put into our house so we went down to the Provo River to take some pictures. We had to hop a fence to get on the bridge and as we were comming back a little 4 year old told on us to his dad. The dad agreed with his son that we were being bad.

Update

We don't have any little kids so we don't have much material for weekly updates on our lives. We do have a cat but that would be weird if we did weekly updates about our cat (Whom after 2 months we still haven't come up with an official name for. We are thinking "Princess Pretty Kitty", "Sasha", "Pam", or "Miss Meowington". Let us know what you think.)
So far this summer we having been painting and doing other little construction projects that have kept us busy. Katie is pulling 47 hour weeks with two jobs, and I just started summer school. I also have gotten an extra job at, not to brag, Dominos. The fact that I have to drive around Provo in an extra large blue Dominos Shirt and goofy looking slip resistant shoes is total made up by the sweet 50% percent discount we get. By the way if anyone that reads this doesn't give at least a 2 dollar tip to the delivery guy I will find you and hurt you.
We were also able to go out of town a few times this summer. First I was able to bear witness to the small town Katie calls home, Blanding. Whilst in the town we stayed in the beautiful "Cliff Palace Motel" which fetured fuzy cable TV with no remote, moldy bathroom walls, and no other motel customers. However, we did get to hike around various area around blanding including Katies homestead. We also went to Glenwood Springs to visit with Grand mummy and grand father. Last of all we spent a weekend with some of Katie's younger cousins while their parents went out of town. There were 3 boys and 1 girl all under the age of 11 and after a weekend of watching them we spent the money we earned on additional birth conrtol.
So that is what has been going on with us.

Our New Condo

So we are all moved in and we are LOVING it! We only have like one box left. We got the key on Tuesday of last week.. March 31. Wednesday was mainly getting it clean and ready to move in. Ooh I also was able to use my own washer and dryer for the first time!! I moved as much as I could on Wednesday but then had class while Erik moved. Overall it took us the entire weekend to get it all in and unpacked, but it is nice to have it over with. With everything piled in the living room, we really had no idea how we fit it into our old apartment! We have soo much stuff. Now though, we have a place for it. In fact we even have so much cupboard space that we aren't using them all. Isn't it exciting!?!?! As soon as we get internet at home we promise to put up pictures, but that won't be for the next couple of days, sorry.
Also, we now have a new little addition to our family. Her name is Sasha and she is a beautiful very loud black kitty!!! We picked her up over this last weekend from a little old woman who needed to find a home for her because her grandkids were allergic. She is extremely cuddly but also very loud. Even her purr can be hear across the house. She is always standing on her back legs and has amazing balance, which is way cute. We love her and are very excited to have her as part of our little family. We now have two fish (kevin: our original gold fish that Erik gave me for Christmas, Carlos: My neices fish that we adopted when she moved) and now Sasha.

Nick Flash Back

So the other day I was cruisin the You Tube and found a few videos that brought tears of joy to my heart. Memories resurfaced that had been hidden in my subconscious for 15 years and reminded me of the joys of my childhood. Here they are:

The Best Website Ever

So for one of my Civil Engineering classes I had to make a Website, so I did what any normal person would do: I made a Full House Tribute Site. Warning, only the most staunch Full House fans can enter. Click on here if you want to.
