Memorial day our neighbors, the Farar’s, set up a huge slip n slide for everyone and brought their grill. Ryan and I showed up without our swim suits on thinking it was just for the kids. So Adriana Farar said I should go get my swim suit on. I’m glad I did because it was a blast. The kids had almost as much fun as the adults. It was pretty funny to see the mom’s racing down the slip n slide. I forgot I haven’t seen the sun in a very long time so I should of put some sun screen on. I got pink but luckily haven’t peeled :) Phew! I didn’t get any pictures of me racing down the slip n slide but I’m sure I had some funny faces considering my hip ran over the stake leaving a pretty good sore spot. The next day out running I couldn’t believe how sore I was. After ten minutes of running I resulted to walking because I was so incredibly stiff. Ha ha. Liz brought her girls over after and we grilled some hamburgers, watched Peter Pan, and relaxed :) That was a fun memorial day!
Dated Thursday, May 31st: Right now I am actually driving to Utah. Ryan’s Grandpa Hayes died Thursday and so we are headed home for the funeral Saturday morning at 11. The dental school has been so good to let Ryan head to Utah and take his exams through Weber State’s testing centers. It will be good for Ryan to be with his family during this time!
Lydia is doing so well on the trip! She eats, stays awake for an hour, and then is out for 2 1/2 hours like clock work. Now the question is will she continue to do well the whole 24 hour trip? I think (hope) so. :) We are stopping at Jordon’s house (Ryan’s brother) in Des Moines Iowa for 3 hours of sleep and then he’s headed out with us for the rest of the 16 hours. We are in the 2 door Honda Civic and it is actually super cozy and not squishy like I was thinking it would be.
It’s Ryan and I’s 1st year anniversary tomorrow but we will celebrate next Friday when things aren’t as busy. But I’ve been reflecting all week how great it’s been this first year. I am shocked how time flies. I think of all that’s happened in a year and wonder what lies ahead in the years to come. Our first year recap...
I graduated right before we got married
We got married June 1st
Went to the Bahamas on a cruise, drove up to Daytona stayed a couple days playing on the beach, then drove to Orlando and went to Universal Studios for a couple more days and then flew home.
We went to Island Park
Lived at the Hirschi’s for 2 weeks
Moved to Indiana

Wonder what this next year will bring? When I think of the first year of marriage I think of the country song, “It doesn’t get better than this and it did!” I think that’s what it’s called?
