So I have finally learned how to do a blog (well, sort of).  Mike and I have been fortunate to travel to many places this summer.  So I posted a few pictures from each adventure.  It all started with my graduation with my masters in social work.  From there we traveled to Texas to watch Celeste graduate from high school.  Then we went to Alaska on a cruise, then to Lava Hot Springs with some friends, then on to Montana to see Grandma and Grandpa.  The summer ended with a trip to Colorado to see Guillaume return home from his two year mission in Korea.  But the fun does not stop there.  The Fall begins with a 10 day trip to Canada, Boston, Rhode Island, and New York.  So there will be more postings in the near future!!
These are some of my friends from my masters program.  There was noway I could have done it without them!

In May, Mike and I flew down to Texas to watch Celeste graduate from high school.  We had a great time hanging out with the family, jet skiing on the river, swimming, and fishing.

In June, Mike and I went to Alaska on a cruise.  We had a great time.  The trip was paid for by his work and we had a huge room with balcony and all.  Not too mention every night after dinner we had a gift on our bed from his company.  This was by far the prettiest day of scenery.  It was so bright outside (even though it doesn't look like it) it took us five times to get a picture with our eyes somewhat open. 
We had just returned from a morning of salmon fishing.  Unfortunately we did not bring back any salmon, instead we both felt very sea sick from the fishing boat.
This was one night at dinner.  We were well-fed on the ship (of course--that's the best part of the cruise).

In July we went to Lava Springs with two of my girlfriends from school and one of Mike's friends from baseball. We camped on Friday night and then Saturday we floated the river. We had a great time!!
The night we arrived we stayed up til 2 AM playing Texas Hold 'Em.
Unfortunately, Jen won both games. The quote of the night was, "I don't know how I have everyones' chips."
These three boys were the first ones out so they watched over the fire.

Jen and I getting situated with our tubes. Unfortunately Jen got a better tube than I did. I flipped over everytime we went over a rapid or maybe I just suck at tubing.
