Anniversary Trip

This summer Eric and I were able to go on a couple of trips together. I must say, this has been our best summer yet!

In June we decided to go on a mini road trip to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone to celebrate graduation and our anniversary. Two years baby! This gave us a chance to go and spend time with my grandparents that live in Alpine, WY. I rarely see them so it was great to see their home and to spend time with them. It was also great to have Eric get a glimpse of my mom's family since we don't see them often. 

Their home was beautiful, though you can't see it in this picture. They definitely live in a serene place. 

From there we took off towards Grand Teton National Park where we stayed at Colter Bay Campground. I was a little nervous with all the bear warnings, but no worries... we are still alive. 

The mountains were breath taking. Eric and I were in awe the whole time we were there. 
From there we headed to Yellowstone. We were pretty lucky to have gone when it was green and the weather was beautiful (minus the mosquitos).  

I was amazed by the different landscapes they have here. There are these beautiful trees and green fields right next to hot spots and steaming ground. 

Most importantly, I got to see wildlife! Woot Woot. 
Eric would say this picture is off center because I was too scared to stick my phone out of the car and take a good picture... I would just say that I was being artistic. 

Needless to say, it was a great trip. We were able to take the weekend and go see some of the beauty that America has to offer. It was so fun to be together and just relax while taking in natures beauty.

No big deal, it has been almost a year since I posted on here. Whoops. Here are some small/big updates on the last little bit of life:

After all the hard work, all the waiting, all the stress, all the prayers, and all the $$$$$ spent....
Eric got accepted into 2 out of 3 of the dental schools he interviewed at. Woo Woo! So proud. We decided to go to Marquette University.
Where is Marquette you may ask? Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Yes, yes. Isn't it cold there? Why yes, thank you for asking. I am in the market for a full length parka. (Only kind of joking)

I am super proud of my man though. Getting into dental school was a long process. He did it! They loved him! and now come beginning of August off to Milwaukee we go, to officially be off on our own building up our family. --No, I'm not pregnant.

I am also proud to say that Eric and I are officially USU alumni! Yeah, we are kind of a big deal. WE know. It was a crazy, but great day. I graduated at noon, Eric graduated at two, MacKenzie (my step sis) graduated at two, and Olivia (my step sis). LONG day to say the least.

He finally kissed me on the A. about time.

Eric and his Twin Jeff. These two have been our very best friends. Happy for them for Jeff getting into Louisville Dental School. Sad for us we won't live just down the road.

A special shout out to these two. Thank you for all the support!
 I don't know how to shrink down this photo, but a special shout of to my fam as well. They are a big reason why I am now a USU graduate. 

Until next time.  =)
