a few adventures

So...I guess if you don't want to see a lot of pictures, you better stop reading now and go to a different blog.  Here are Darrin and my adventures in the past month.  I just haven't had time to post for a while. Who knew teaching would take up so much of my time?! :)

First thing...Darrin and I moved! Yay! I was pretty excited to move because this apartment is nicer and has a few things that our other apartment didn't have--mainly a dishwasher and a washer and dryer.  I LOVE them both!  Here are two of my favorite rooms of the house because they are such an upgrade from our last apartment.

The kitchen:

and the bathroom: (we got a cute new shower curtain too)

We got a cute little googly-eyed fish and named him Jared.  Then...they both died :( Hermano (the bigger fish) was our great pet for more than a year--we had him about when Darrin and I started dating.

Our next adventure is exploring some Mayan ruins (or so Darrin called them).  He saw this structure from the highway and decided that one day he would explore them, so one Sunday, on our way to Payson, we did.  

Here is Darrin before we got there--we had to hike a little ways up. (He's way excited)

Here they are close-up.  We both agreed they were a little more impressive looking from afar.

Here was my favorite piece of art that someone so thoughtfully spray painted on the ruins. Aren't they cute?

The next adventure was going to St. George for Lincoln's baby blessing (Mindy & Jesse's little boy).  Here are two cute boys sleeping in the back of the car.  How sweet!

This is sometime in St. George.  Hannah is getting so big and grown up--now in Kindergarten! This almost looks like a future family photo :)

Here's a close-up of cute little Lincoln.  He was very content sleeping.  He likes to stick his tongue out when he sleeps.

Whenever Hannah sees Darrin she always tackles him and he is a good sport about it and plays along.

And Matthew showing off his recently attained walking skills. With Hannah tackling in the background.

And those are some of our adventures in the last month.  Hope you enjoyed!
