So today we went to Lagoon with our friends Chris and Lindsey, and it was a blast! We have been planning it for like a month. We all got work off and Nick and I spent the night in Ogden, where they live, and had an eventful evening, going swimming and playing the wii. Then today we went to Lagoon and by the way- we just love the Rocket!!!
Highlights of the trip: Did you know there is a Firehouse pizzeria in Centerville, well there is and now we don't have to drive up to logan, or plan to be in logan during lunch or dinner!!! Also I got stung by a bee!! Crazy huh, there were bees all over, and one stung me on the neck/shoulder. Nick pulled the stinger out and it still hurts as I am writing this! One thing that makes me happy though is- now that pesky bee is dead because it decided he was too mad to live!! :) I feel he deserved to die! Nick and Chris went on the catapult, I got to be in the front on the colossus, we all got to exerience the stomach turning samuri! Overall the trip was a good time with good company!!!

Every year we go to the Burley Fair and Rodeo. This year was Nick's first time to experience this tradition since his addition to the family. This year it was my parents, us, Kimmy, Jenni, and Karen; and to my family who weren't able to make it, the maple bars were just as amazing as ever, you really should be jealous you missed out!! The bronco rides I think were the most entertaining, and bull riding was disappointing just like last year, maybe next year they will make up for it!
Here are the Famous maple bars, that we wait every year to experience every August! Really I think we go mostly to the Rodeo for the maple bars. I have been raving to Nick about them ever since we started dating a year ago, and he finally was able to try them!!
This is Nick savoring the taste of this delicacy! He even said they lived up to all the hype (of course)!!!
