Ode to trekking poles

Without knowing it, I married a man who loves to hike. Now, this comes from a girl who would do ANYTHING IN THE WORLD to get out of participating in the hike at girl's camp when I was younger. This summer, we are going to go on many vacations with hiking involved. We are going to Mesa Verde, Arches National Park, Zion's National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park. A few weeks ago, we decided to do a hike up Rock Canyon in Provo. After the hike, Chris suggested that we get some trekking poles to help our journey. Today, we tried them out. They make hiking a lot easier and more bearable! They help with balance, and take the strain off of my knees. I am in favor of trekking poles, although they did make my arms a little sore!

Friends are the best!

I love my friends!  I haven't seen this friend in YEARS, and it was just like old times getting together with her.  Last time I saw her, she was getting married in 2005.  Now, she has a beautiful baby, and I have a husband too.  Yeah that we are still friends!

Happy Birthday week!

We have three birthdays in our families in the same week--whew!  Mom Rusch's was yesterday, Mom Davis's is today, and Matt's is tomorrow.  We sent Mom Rusch flowers, gave Mom Davis some books while we were home for Mother's Day, and had dinner with Matt and Nate today for Matt's birthday.  Happy Birthday to all!
