Fun Times Outdoors

{Monday May 23, 2011}
We took Rudy to Farmington Lake with some family and fellow dogs. Rudy loves the lake and playing fetch in the water. Reed and I just have a good time just watching him run back and forth.
{Tuesday May 24, 2011}
We took Rudy for a little hike in Largo Canyon with Reed's brother Bryce, cousin Justin and his wife Brooke. Its been nice having some time off and we wanted to have some fun with Rudy before we have to do corn. (which starts tomorrow as a matter of fact)
{Rudy really thinks he is a mountain goat.}
 We had lots of fun this week which was a good thing because this weekend we will be working our rears off.

Garage Cleanup

{May 23, 2011}
On Monday Reed talked me into helping him clean up the garage and reorganizing it. Right after we started working he realized he had a physical therapy appointment and left me to clean the garage by myself for an hour and a half. Reed being the smart husband he is brought me back a little something.
Boy is my husband a smart man, he knows how much I love donuts. Nothing says I love you like bringing home these babies.

Backyard Transformation

In Octoberish we moved into the duplex we live in now and lets just say the backyard needed some work. Since it has warmed up lately we decided to fix up our yard before we begin our
summer job
This is the best before picture I have after we removed all the weeds and got the ground ready for to pour some concrete for a patio.
On Wednesday we poured the concrete, my hard working husband did a great job!
{especially for not knowing what he was doing}
I even had some company while watching. They kept asking me the whole time when they could go jump in it :)
Our backyard is looking good! We have made a lot of progress and I will post pictures when we are done with our backyard transformation. We are getting good practice for when we buy a home of our own.

Reed and I had a plan that when we finished school we would get out of town for a few days to relax. We decided to go to Moab, UT because it was close but not to close.
{Of course we had to take Orange Crush}
Good thing because along the way Reed decided it would be nice to pick up a hitchhiker. I said no but Reed did anyways. Rudy liked having some company in the back.
Our first stop was the Goose neck State Park.

This place had some awesome views.

I thought this sign was cool.
{Bluff, UT}
We spent the first night in Blanding with Reed's dad then next day we made it to Moab and we had to take Rudy to play. He loved these sand dunes!
On Thursday we went it to Arches National Park.

{the famous delicate arch}
The 3 1/2 mile hike was worth it but we were all hiked out after that and decided we will have to take another trip to do some of the other hikes at the park. 
But we still enjoyed some other views from the road :)
It was a great trip for the both of us and we had a blast getting away for a couple days with just the 2 of us, and Rudy :)

Savin' Up

Reed and I decided we needed to start saving a little each month for food storage and emergency preparedness. So we did just that but Reed decided the first thing we needed to buy was this...

That's right a hand gun for the food storage we don't will have! We went out to test it out a couple weeks ago. It is pretty sweet  I will admit.
Good thing I love him :)

A couple nights ago Reed and I went somewhere in his truck and we left Rudy in the back. When we came back he was nowhere to be found, which was crazy because he never jumps out of the truck. We started calling his name and out pops his head out of the cab.

Imagine that big dog crawling through that little window. haha he is a huge dork.

P.S. Reed's surgery went great. Everything is fixed but it could be 8-10 weeks for full recovery, so that means he will be doing physical therapy along the way. But all is well.

Reed's Hand

{Tuesday April 26}
As I mentioned in my last post Reed was working on his truck when something unexpected happened. He was tightening a bolt when the wrench slipped off and shot his hand upward where he cut open his knuckles.
I took him to urgent care because we knew he would need some stitches. After waiting there which seemed like forever they sent us to the E.R. because they wanted to be safe.
We waited and waited and waited. Finally Reed was taken back and then we waited and waited some more before we saw the doctor. Once Reed's hand was numbed up the doctor took a look and found out that Reed cut his tendon.
Reed now has a surgery scheduled for Tuesday morning. Thank goodness we still have insurance is all I have to say.
