Jake and Rudi came to visit!!

We LOVE our friends from Michigan! They came in on Saturday morning and we showed them around Rexburg and then we went golfing! It was Rudi's first time golfing EVER and she wasn't expecting anything fun. BUT she had a blast and says she will definitely do it again! For a first time golfer, she did AMAZING! She shocked us all :)

Then we got up early Sunday morning and headed to Yellowstone. Jake and Rudi had never been there before so we had to take them there. We didn't see a whole was actually kind of boring but we did see some buffalo, a bald eagle, elk, deer, and a grizzly bear! The grizzly bear was the highlight of the trip! Brady was so excited he grabbed the video camera and taped it. I must say it was pretty awesome, the grizzly was eating a buffalo! It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see it.

Our next stop was to Utah. Jake and Rudi have friends down in Provo and they are spending the rest of their vacation down there. We had so much fun hanging out with them! We can't wait to see them again!

So much has happened in the month of August! I am the newest teller at Zion's Bank in Rigby, Idaho! This job is perfect for me! I will work 2 - 3 days a week and it works well with school. The pay isn't too bad either! I've also been reading like crazy! I read Breaking Dawn in 24 hours and LOVED it! It's my favorite out of the whole series! I've also started reading Harry Potter and I am really enjoying them. I started the first book last Tuesday and I am on the third one already! Brady's been really busy with work and doing school work. He's also been helping his parents with their store that opens this coming Saturday. He is such a hard worker and I appreciate the hard work he puts into supporting our family.

Last Saturday we hiked R Mountain with our friends Tia, Mike and Everett. The weather was perfect...sunny, warm with a cool breeze! We saw lots of lizards, some cactus', and lots of rocks. Brady tried to catch a lizard by stepping on it and he pulled the tail off! It was wiggled as he held it!

We are excited for our friends Rudi and Jake to visit from Michigan! We're going to take a trip over to Yellowstone and then down to Utah. We are really excited to see them and spend time with them!
