Joel and I went camping a few weekends ago! It was a lot of fun. My dad came and brought Calvin who is the son of a good friend of his and my Mom and sister Elizabeth came as well and brought my nephew Cameron. We had a great time! It was awesome to get a nice little break from school and work :)

You can't tell but its raining in this picture!

Fourth of July!

We had a great 4th of July. We went for a hike at Donner Lake and then came home and bbq'd some steak. The hike was lots of fun. We went through some of the old train tunnels above the lake that are not in use anymore. It was really cool. You could see the rocks and areas stained from the smoke from the trains passing through. We took the dogs with us and that was a lot of fun. We are still working with Rasha on walking on a leash, but she had a lot of fun.

Joel and the dogs on the Trail. In case you were wondering the other dog is Maggie, she is our new roommates dog, we kidnap her for stuff when her mom is busy.

We came out of this hole in the tunnels and you could see Donner Lake really well, it was such a nice day out!

Joel and the girls in front of one of the tunnels. I was able to catch the two dogs actually sitting still for a picture!!

Sitting and relaxing after the hike having some snacks. Maggie wants some pistachios!

We had a great day hiking and can't wait to do it again.

Okay so I havn't posted in a while. It has been pretty busy around here for the two of us. School is turning out to be very challenging for both of us this semester and takes a whole lot of our time. We are both loving it though, but still can't wait for the end of the semester, which is in a week! Then we get a whole week off and start again for our summer semester. We are both going to school this summer. My classes are going to be crazy! 17 credits in three months. This last semester was a lot of fun. It was hard, but I have really enjoyed it. I have learned a lot, and seen a lot of interesting stuff as well. Nothing yet that makes me wish I had picked a different career choice so thats a good thing. We are both going to graduate a year from now, which makes it easier to get through it, knowing the end is near... well the end for now :P.

The house is coming along well. Still a TON of work to do on it, but the work we have done has turned out pretty good. I promise I am going to post pictures soon.

The newest member of our family!

Meet Rasha. She is a 2 1/2 year old Border Collie/Lab Mix. We adopted her from a shelter a few weeks ago. Her story is really sad, she was abadoned with a note around her neck in a parking lot as a puppy. She was brought to this shelter where she was adopted out and then the women who adopted her lost her house or something and took her back to the shelter. Now she has found a nice permanent home with us! She has a great personality, is really sweet and loving. She is also house trained, knows how to sit and lay down (sometimes). We just love her!!

School has started!

(meet my books for this semester)

Joel and I are officially back in school. He is finishing his computer science degree and I am FINALLY starting Nursing school.

My first week is over.

It has been fun.

And a little crazy/overwhelming

I think it will stay this way until I get into a real routine.
