Summer Vacations

SO we have been pretty busy lately, mostly on vacation which has been fun but we are ready for school to start and get back to a more normal schedule!  Here is a quick recap of life as of lately more picturess less words.  Enjoy! 

Matt and I went on our first vacation alone this summer, I was kinda sad to not be going with all of our family  but we had so much fun!  The ride to Oregon was about 12 hours so we got to have a lot of one on one time  to talk and catch up on life and to listen to Hunger Games the series :)   

 We went to Oregon to visit a good friend.  While Matt was on his mission he met Sis. Hopkins she was 90 when Matt baptized her and ever since then has been really good friends with her.  We finally set up a time to go down and visit her.  She is the cutest old lady every, so caring and spoiled us like crazy!   She kept telling me that she had "adopted" Matt a long time ago and is the son she never got to have.
 While there we got to sight see, Crater lake is stunning!  

 Dee Hopkins (we decided we would name a child after her when we have one! well at least a middle name!)  

After coming back from Oregon we had a few days and then back on vacation, a paid vacation!  Matt was asked to go on a charter to Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Devils Tower, and Idaho Falls.  We were with a group of Armenian people (even though they all live in Cali.)  It was an adventure that was for sure, they were a LOUD group of people but very nice and very loving! 

 Finally marked something off my bucket list!

 We stayed in Deadwood one night, it was such a fun town!  We even stayed in the Franklin Hotel, tons of famous people have stayed there as well :) NBD

After returning home from the charter Matt went on another trip to Yellowstone with a different group of Chinese people, So I am here in Layton until he gets back.  My parents and aunts and uncles are on a vacation in Ashton, Kyrons at EFY and so I am here alone :(  But it means lots of  time with my cute niece and nephews, and that means the zoo!

 The polar bear was a total show off haha he kept pushing off the glass then doing a flip, diving under the water and doing the same thing over and over again! hahaha it was so cool!

Today was such a good day, it was an overcast day and all the animals were out.  Even the tiger was hanging out in the water, I have never seen that before!

 Train ride!

I also think I should mention Matt and I found an apartment!  We can move in anytime after tomorrow!! :) I can't wait to be back in school, Matt will not be driving during school so we get to spend everyday together without Matt being in Utah everyday as well! :) whoot whoot!!
