What I have been doing.....

I have admit I am feeling a little guilty about not posting for a little while, I check everyone else's posts expecting them to have updated theirs, and I haven't done mine. I just haven't felt like I have done anything exciting enough to post on. Knowing this, you can continue to read if you want, I will just give a little update of what I have been doing for the last little while. We had the opportunity last week to puppy-sit my sister-in-laws dog, a little poodle. This experience has re-affirmed to Dave that he does NOT want a little dog. The puppy was a lot of fun, she was just really hyper. The reason I put the picture of Gauge up here is to somewhat illustrate his infinite patience, he was wonderful with the little dog jumping up on him non-stop for a week. The second picture is not exactly the most flattering of me, but it was to commemorate an exciting event, the first time I have actually caught a fish, fly fishing. We went fly fishing last week and I actually ended up catching 4 or 5 fish, I have yet to land one, I guess that is the next step? Anyway, I guess you can't really appreciate this fact unless you have been fly fishing, but I thought it was pretty cool anyway. My book club went well, not as many people showed up as I had planned, but it was still fun, and there is always next month. The book we are reading this month is The Secret Life of Bees. So other than working, and reading, this is pretty much what I have been doing the last few weeks, not that exciting, but hey, you were warned.

Book Club!

Anyone who knows me knows I am an avid(Dave would say obsessive) reader. I have been hearing a lot about book clubs lately and have decided to start my own. I am so excited and a little nervous. I have never actually been in one, so everything I know about them is through researching them online and what people have told me. I am always looking for great new books to read so I figured this is a great way to read new books, and to get together with friends. I have to be honest, I am excited about reading new books and everything, but I am really excited for the once-a-month girl bonding time. I definitely don't get enough of that in, in fact I don't know anyone who actually does. Anyway, I would love any suggestions on books to read, or ways to make the book club better!

Baseball Time!

Tonight Dave and I found a great new way to play baseball with just the two of us. One of us pitches, the other one hits and Gauge (our dog) fetches the ball once it is hit. This isn't exactly a fool-proof method because Gauge doesn't always pay attention to where the ball is going, so about half the time we still have to run and find the ball, but it is still fun. This is one of the things I love about summer, the chance to get out after work and play!

Summer Recap

I can't believe that summer is almost over. It is kind of funny, when summer starts there are always so many things you want to do, and then all of a sudden labor day weekend is here and you don't know where your summer went. This summer was a mellow one seeing as how Dave spent the majority of it studying for the Dental Admissions Test. We were able to get some playing in though. We managed to get some rock climbing, hiking, fishing, running, and camping in. To celebrate this labor day weekend we headed off camping to Boulder Mountain (Middle of Utah somewhere). We had a great time hiking and fishing. Here is a great picture of my boys fishing.
