  • When the opportunity arises to go see both Relient K and Owl City in concert, take it.
  • Road Trips are ALWAYS worth it. Even when they are totally spur of the moment, and you haven’t planned any of it.
  • Enrique Iglesias is obviously awesome
  • If you are babysitting and the kids want to watch cartoons Danny Phantom is far more preferable than Johnny Test.
  • Traveling to a Foreign Country requires a lot of phone time. Seriously. I’ve spent the last three days on the phone, and I hate to talk on the phone.
  • When it comes to packing I am a huge procrastinator. I hate packing.
  • Don’t keep your camera and iPod in a beach bag with a can of spray of sunscreen. You never know when it will just explode and ruin your prized possessions.
  • When playing Fugitive look where you run. Otherwise you might just run off a small cliff and somersault onto someone’s driveway and break your wrist.
  • It’s really hard to type with your right hand in a cast.
  • Get a black cast. It shows less dirt.
  • I can NOT make scrambled eggs. The last batch I made caused someone to throw up. Seriously.
  • Sleeping on the Beach in California is definitely a good time.

Last weekend was easily the best weekend of my life. Long live the spontaneous road trip. Friday I went to Six Flags in California, and can I just say that Roller-coasters are quite possibly my favorite thing on the planet. So one of the coolest roller-coasters at the park is Tatsu.

TatsuAnd since I broke my wrist a couple of weeks ago, and I’m currently sporting a bright green cast I’m technically not allowed to ride it. Luckily I have some persistent friends, and the arm rests/hand grips are miraculously the exact same shade of green as my cast. So worth it.

Ok actually I guess it’s the grand canyon state. But so far I’ve seen alot more cactus then grand canyon. P.S. for those who didn’t know? I’m in Mesa staying with my moms cousin for a while working at her husbands orthodontist office… working is a loose term, perhaps standing around wishing I could do stuff would be better. So far I have learned…

120 degrees? Completely possible. I thought I knew hot before, turns out I never even met the guy
sometimes you can be so hot that getting in the pool just makes you feel gross
Little boys can actually be terrorists and when working together can actually tie you to a chair
Saying “Nice to meet you”  to someone you’ve never seen in your life just isn’t good enough for some people, the may prefer “Wow your teeth are really crooked Kelli, we’ll have to get braces on you right away”
Mesa Arizona is sortof like a little annex of Utah… complete with tons of 8 kids families and children with BOM names all over the place
My cousins husband thinks I’m a so sheltered or whatever that I can’t even identify a saguaro cactus. WRONG sir my mother is a plant genius and I’m pretty sure even people on the east coast know what those are

:) Also these people have a pet pig… snoop hog I can’t tell you how weird I think that is. and they treat it like a baby and it sleeps in the house, so weird. Anyways I think tomorrow I am going to try to cook an egg on the street just to see if it can really be done, I’ve wanted to try that since I was a little kid.

Also let the hunt for The filthy 5, the worlds worst park commence!

Cause After Today

Our brains will be snoozing :D

We packed up today.
Ssee ya later school, HELLO SUMMER!!

Read Full Post »

Ok so, Its not actually the last day of summer. We don’t start till Wednesday. But Monday is move in day so we wont be home anymore. I used to be excited to go back to school, and I feel like maybe by Wednesday I will be. But right now, when people ask If Your excited for school to start I can barely muster the smile that goes with “yeah it should be really fun”. Anyways. that makes me sound depressed but I was thinking maybe there should be a list for our Best Moments of summer EVER

  • First comes tubing the river. Tubing the river is fun, pretty much no matter what happens. and people just think you are crazy and it is awesome.
  • Chalking at the hang out. Bringing out the kids hidden not very well in all of us. This includes eating Wendy’s like 4 nights of the week.
  • Late night No bake cookie cravings. I love those cookies…
  • Parade of Homes. Stealing candy, Dancing around in the hallways, singing about dead lambs, being crazy. ahhh good times
  • White water rafting on the Snake. Its freezing, Its AWESOME
  • Horseback riding. This Includes Horse club trail rides and shows. Horse club was the best of times
  • Bear Lake. Its just the greatest place, what more can be said
  • The random Nintendo phases Sadie’s house goes through and Everyone gets sucked in. Wave race, Mario Party, DDR, Smash bros. the cycle is never ending.
  • Going to the pool, even though we don’t really do anything
  • Midnight movie showings with the old gang. Huuu I sure do miss all those kids.
  • Sarah’s friends coming over and us acting like crazy people. Dressing up, Scaring them, running through the house doing whatever, getting super competitive.
  • Game nights. I love game nights.

Obviously Its pretty difficult to accept that in a few short years summer with nothing to do will be a thing of the past for me. NOOOO maybe I’ll be a teacher after all.

P.S. obviously we are both feeling pretty nostalic, I didn’t realize that you just posted about all the horse memories:D

Projected Schedule:
Monday- Work, Practice Smashbros, Ride horses,
Tuesday- College Supply shopping trip, Ride horses,
Wednesday- Pool Day, Ride horses, movie night
Thursday- River Run and ride horses
Friday- Shopping, squeeze in some smashbros practice (we want to win the championship against an arrogant boy) Party @ 7.
Saturday- Pack stuff, Ride horses, last minute shopping, Official end of summer snow cone run.

Actual Schedule
Monday- Work, Shop, Sit around, Made bulletin boards for our new room.
Tuesday- Ride horses, nothing
Wednesday- Almost go to the pool… but then Sadie falls asleep after taking pain meds and best sunlight hours are lost. Next… going to a B-day party causing us to miss Olympics and horseback riding and forcing us to buy a gift.
Thursday- We’ll let you know (Party moved up to today instead of Friday)
Friday- Sadie picks up an extra shift at work….
Saturday- Probably everything but the packing.

Summer Camp

Ok so I’m not going to summer camp. My family is actually going camping with some of my cousins. I don’t know how I feel about this really… I mean the beach and cousins are fun, but camping? I’ve got to admit… not really my favorite thing. But I am excited for JET SKIING! WHOO! I love Jet Skis. They are a blast. Last year I was on the back of one of the jet skis with my older brother, and he was doing all this crazy stuff trying to throw me off and he succeeded… only so did I.. because I pulled him off with me. It was awesome. And I look forward to it happening again if I ever end up having to ride with him. Plus no way would I ever really complain about vacation.. I mean come on! (actually one exception the infamous Moab trip… shudder) And I just completed my mix CD for the drive up. I’m starting to get excited despite the whole camping thing. Wahoo! Plus I am SICK of working.

P.S. Check it out we are #5 on Top Blogs in the personal, life, Philippians section. I have no idea what this blog has to do with Philippians, but… no complaints man!

I did one of these when I left Logan. Now I feel another is necessary. Tomorrow Is the last day of my job at the Aviary. WEIRD. A part of me has waited all summer for this day. And now I sortof dread it. perhaps that is due to the fact that As my job ends so does summer. NOOOO. Anyways.

Things I’ll Miss

Some of the weird people I work with
Dirt cheap Popsicles
Working outside
Having a flexible schedule
Listening to all the crazy Bird people over the radios

Alright SO there isn’t much there…. Now

Things I Wont

Our Archaic Credit Card Machines. (we have one slider and one that still uses that carbon paper. no lie.)
Dressing up as the pelican (this might get a whole post some day)

Awww cute, Thats not actually me. it's Conner

Having both bird shows memorized
Our Phone System from the 70’s
Our really Gross floors
Some of the weird people I work with
Having to think up new fun crafts
Our broken ticket window

The nasty water
Being a good customer server when I really just want to tell them how dumb they are
Having to remind myself not to answer my phone and say “Aviary, this is Kelli”
Being yelled at by bird show for being late
