137 days and counting!!!

So some of you may be wondering about the subtitle in our blog referring to Stinky Falls (surely no one who has ever lived in South Texas). This was Ned's favorite summer spot as a kid. I have only been once, shortly after we were engaged, and I honestly don't remember much about it, but we did have a good time. ( I do, however, remember enough to bring water shoes and a life jacket this time.) Ned and his siblings got together and decided we would all take a trip down there this summer, and we are counting down the days to get out of Utah! We are all staying at the same summerhouse/cabin, and I can't wait!!
This one is a close up of the tube chute itself. Look at all the build-up on the walls. It kind of makes you wonder about sanitation, doesn't it? -hence the water shoes- but Ned assures me it is very safe, at least health-wise. The dangers of the water, on the other hand, are legendary among his family.
This is a picture of a bridge near Stinky's that Ned used to jump off as a kid. It's probably between 30 and 40 feet above the river, and I have been up there before-- there's no way I would ever jump off it!!

Also, there are only 123ish days left until we visit my family. We are either going to Yellowstone, Bermuda, my grandparents, the Caymans, or Hawaii. Obvioiusly we're not exactly sure what we're going to end up doing exactly, but we are equally excited!!! Here are a few pics of some of the possibilities...


My grandparents ( You can't really tell from the picture, but it's an AMAZING horse ranch!):

The Cayman Islands:


Hawaii (from my last trip!):

I just talked to my mom, and she says Yellowstone is a go!

Hope you get to go all of them. Nice writing. You are so cute: remember only to bring your water shoes and life jacket. The photo fo the tube chute makes me want to make some plans as well. Love you. m

WOW, I love the world we live in. I would love to see and do all of that.

For Sunday, please let me know if I can bring dessert (No chocolate, I promise:) or a salad or whatever you wish. And the time you would like us to show up. I don't have your e-mail address. If you do not have mine Amy does. E-mail me via her and maybe she can give us each other's address! Thanks, J

I personally would put my vote in for the Cayman islands, hawaii or bermuda. What are you're parents thinking? YELLOWSTONE? (I've been there a million times).
