Family Bowling/Laser Tag:

I love family nights! We were just hanging around last weekend at my parents house and my sisters friend thought it would be fun for us all to go out bowling! We obviously couldn't say no to bowling, so off we went. 

My dad brought in a poster calendar and said that was the prize to the winning couple. haha. It was fun to say we all really wanted that poster and we all played hard for it. Daniel and I dominated the first game by 100 points!! Booya! Then the next game Kelsey and her husband Brian played the best, but luckily our first game was good enough to keep us in the lead and we were able to win the big prize!! :)

After bowling two games we decided to play laser tag! Oh my, I love that game!!! I think I watch too much Prison Break because I was on fire, running around, yelling at my team and watching their backs while we "went in" after people. haha. We laughed and loved every second of it.  Hopefully we play again soon!

7 Year Anniversary::

Happy Anniversary to my boy Daniel! We celebrated our 7 year anniversary this year on Thanksgiving. I have a lot to be thankful for especially being married to Daniel. He's such an amazing guy! We have so much fun together. I love how great we get a long and love being with each other so much. We kept our anniversary tradition going with our....
6th annual Park City Black Friday Shopping!!! This year we invited Dan's brother Mike and My brother Skye. They were lots of fun to have around and I'm glad they came. :) We got to our hotel about 7pm on Thanksgiving. We went swimming and then sat in the hot tub until about 8:30. Then we went to McDonalds to re-gain our strength to shop. :) We went shopping from 10 pm until 3 am. So fun!!! It was about 30 degrees warmer than last year so it was pretty crazy and busy, but we still loved it! I love our little tradition.
Here is our Park City Shopping Crew

I can't wait until next year! We'll see who gets invited next year with us.....if you dare. It's a lot of work to shop with us. =0)

Hale Center Theater: The Wonderful Wonderettes::

This play was amazing and hilarious! I was crying many times from laughing so hard. There were only 4 girls who performed the entire time, and they did such a great job. I want to go back and see it again before it's over.
The Set
The Four Amazing Performers!
I love date night!
Us, with my sister Sara.
Having a great time. :)
 My dad was picked from the audience to help out and be "Mr. Lee" a school teacher a student had a crush on. :)
 Here is "Mr. Lee getting engaged. My dad had a lot of fun and our friend Mimi was the girl playing the part my dad was getting married to. She made it so fun and we were laughing so hard! My family knew my dad was going to be chosen for this part but my dad had no idea. It was a fun surprise. :)

I always seem to forget how much I love going to these plays. One day I'll end up buying season tickets.

"Orange you glad for adoption?"::

Daniel and I were able to go run the, Adoption 'Walk With Me' 5k on Saturday morning! We really enjoyed it and it was good to get out and exercise!
My "in action" shot. :)
Daniels action picture.
At the finish line.
It was fun to run with Daniel. We don't run together often. He's a lot faster than me I realized today. :) It was the perfect way to start my Saturday!

Halloween Party:

We went to a Halloween party this past weekend! We had so much fun!

Great food + amazing friends = a fantastic night!

England/Scotland Vacation 09/2011:

We had the privilege of traveling to England and Scotland this past September. It was a trip of a lifetime that we will never forget.
On the airplane, passports in hand and ready to sleep our way across the ocean.
(like I could, I was way too excited!)

Seeing Big Ben for the first time. Big Ben was bigger than I thought it would be. It was amazing to see!

Us with the guard at Buckingham Palace
The gate of Buckingham Palace. We were able to take a tour inside which was amazing! That place is huge!
Posing outside of Buckingham Palace
Us at Tower Bridge.
We took the subway to a little place called Camden Town. We are standing in front of the building where Daniel's favorite band Coldplay made their last two albums. We didn't get to meet them, but did find out they were there recording they day we came to visit. =)
Classic London phone booth picture
In front of St. Pauls Cathedral.
We went bike riding through Hyde park in London. I loved that part!
Daniel at Stonehenge
We also stayed in Bath Spa. Fun little town! Here is Daniel in front of the first Cathedral in Bath.

At our hotel in Bath. The hotel grounds were so pretty!
Our first stop driving in Scotland. Unbelievably gorgeous place!
We drove a lot in Scotland. When I say "we" I mean Daniel. He was an amazing sport. Wrong side of the car and the wrong side of the road. He was a trooper! Here we are stopped to eat at Fort Williams. I had to get a picture of Daniel with the cool water and boat.

Another spot we just stopped at while driving in Scotland. I couldn't believe how gorgeous everything was. It was breathtaking everywhere you looked.

Across the street from the Edinburgh Castle! I could have stared at that ginormous castle for hours!
The adorable town of Inverness. 
We loved every minute of our 2 week trip and hope to go back again someday soon!
