Update on us

Well, like most of us it's been a long time since I posted, and I thought I might update what Christy and I have been up to these past few months.

We had fun when Darcey, Cam and Savannah stopped by, as well as Abagail for a night. Going out to the lake, and the cabin and having fun out there and just hanging out with everyone. Ain't we so cool!? Savannah had a great time of coarse.

and we had to celebrate Christy's book hmm, I think Christy enjoyed the surprise. I think someone enjoyed the cake. and I think Darcey enjoyed it to. Oh, i think someone loves her sister.

So, that was fun. We then took a weekend off work and went to the Renaissance Festival. It was a hot day, as expected, and lots of fun.

Christy smiling at the camera

This is Christy's little bro, he's now on his mission and will be heading out to Germany on 9/30

Here is Ruben (Christy's bro), Toni (a good friend of ours), and Rachel (Christy's little sis)

And Christy would get mad at me if I didn't put one of me in here.

One of my favorite things was the bell player, known as The Carillon. I was going to put a video in but it's not working how I would like, so maybe another post.

Christy had a lot of fun, including making costumes to attend in.

We took a trip up to the mountains on a quick three day backpacking trip. We went up to the Rawahs this time. The hike was rough, but it was worth it, at least to me, Christy I think is still trying to determine whether it was or not. We didn't see any moose this time, but we had a visitor to our camp site. Christy named her Dody, she came right up to the camp, paying little attention to us.

Here's Dody!

He both got our fishing licenes and did a little fishing. But the fishing wasn't all that good. Though, as I've heard a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work. We did keep one to eat, and it was delicious.

Here was one catch, can you tell what kind of fish? Needless to say, we didn't cook this one.

Here was another one, it was early in the day so I tossed it back. It was fun wading, you could easily wade all the way across the lake cause the deepest it got was 3.5 feet.

A last pic before leaving the camp site, we must have been getting a little smelly.

And it looks like Christy is ready for a nice bath.

Well, Labor day weekend we took a little trip to GA for a book festival. It was hot, and the GPS system we tried out sent us in circles a few times, but it was a fun, learning experience. We didn't sell too many books, but I think it was a good way to help Christy learn to promote her own book and was well worth it.

YA!! She Sold a Book!!! and she's signing it for the guy!

Christy's out working the crowd!

There she is with the book!

And this was our plane home, we pulled out the camera to get a pic of the pilot washing the window, but we were too slow. It was kinda funny looking.

Well we made it home. And now Christy is in Germany for her best friend's wedding. And she's having a blast.

She does have her first book signing coming up here shortly, on OCt 18th at the Barnes and Noble at the promenade shops at Centerra. It should be fun.

So that's a good update for now I'll try and do better myself at posting so I don't have to put these long posts. Hope to hear from all you to!!!
