LIFE IS AWESOME

Life is awesome. Here are some photos explaining why I think so. Utah is an awesome state and I love living here. I love that we have so many outdoor activities available, and although I have been single for a while now, I love being able to do whatever I want, whenever I want.(sorry all you married couples, at least I have one thing on you)





Happiness is.....getting up at 5:45 to go boating.



Here I am slalom skiing. It's my first time ever trying it.









Happiness is.......... Surfing behind the boat.












My friend Jared slashing through the water.







Happiness is.............. floating the Provo River on inner tubes.






Happiness is..........eating lunch in the park with friends on a beautiful day.




Hapiness is...........Mtn. Biking up the Bonneville Shorline Trail then going down Bobsled.


Happiness is.....................Ending the day at Cafe Rio with a Chicken Salad.

Happiness is.................being able to do this all in one day!

Summer Days and Nights

My good friends Krista and Aaron (A-bag) had their first baby. It's a boy, gavin. I finally caught up with them the other day at their place to see him. Cute kid. Well done you guys!









I went to a really good friends wedding reception. Chris kent and I go way back. All the way to AYSO and Strikers and his dad Joe coaching us. Congrats to Beav and his new Bride. Here is a picture of them cutting the cake. It was also good to see osme old friends I hadn't seen in a ver long time. Seth Huggins. Vicki Hansen, Josh and Brandon Wray, Brad Hepworth, Cory Turkelson, Jackson Van Dyke, Sam Hykelah, and a few more.












We also went boating to Jordanele. It was a lot of fun and the first time I had really been boating this year. Thanks to my roomate Jeff and taking us in his boat. I am not a huge fan of wakeboarding. I have just seen too many people get hurt and am scared to try any flips or tricks so I just jump the wake... Although I did try surfing the wake close to the boat and that was a blast. Here are a few pics. (Click to enlarge)













My one and only trick, a grab.










Here are a few videos of my good buddy Blake Nelson. He is pretty good on a wakeboard. probably the best I have ever been with. It's surprising to see how many people suck at wakeboarding on the lake. I hardly ever see people that are good. Especially when they are rolling in a 100 thousand dollar wakeboard boat. Props to Blake.




Sorry but I am not hip on the wakeboard nomenclature, but I think this is an air railey?

I have had a great summer so far. Hanging with friends and family!
