Rafting Trip Day 3

Another Hike in the morning to see some cool Indian ruins.  This one looks like a baseball
 Up inside a dwelling.  We had to climb up a pretty steep mountain to get inside this one.

 Lots of Big Horn sheep
 Practicing riding down some small rapids

My turn!  It was so hard not to get pushed down the river by the water!

 Our destination!  Mexican Hat!  It was a fun trip!  We were definitely ready for a shower and a bed by the time we were done though!

Rafting Trip Day 2

Making Dinner in the kitchen!
 Human train down the river
 An old structure that had a gian wheel on the end that dipped into the river to create power back in the days
 Lukey Poo taking a break
 Chris and Katye
The San Juan Hill where pioneers struggled in settling Eastern Utah

 "WE THANK THEE GOD" carved into the rocks at the top of the trail.  Their animals had to work so hard to get up the trail that they collapsed at the top with muscle spasms and fatigue and many of them were lost :(
 Marks from the wheel of the wagons ground into the rocks on the trail
 Hiking the trail
 Some neat Indian dwellings in the rocks
 A closer look.  About 30 or so people lived here.  Crazy

Rafting trip day 1

 We drove to our starting point the night before and camped next to the river.  It was a 6 hour drive.  3 hours to Lake Powell and then another 3 hours near Bluff in Eastern Utah.  There were some puppies that someone left out there and so of course we instantly took them under our wing and fed them.  The ranger said someone was coming back to adopt them which was great otherwise we probably would have taken them home!
 Getting ready for our adventure!!
There was one big raft that our guide had most of the food and supplies in and a bunch of smaller rafts called "duckies" that we got to carry some of our gear in and 1-2 people. 
 Dave and Chris excited for the adventure!
 And we are off in the muddy river!
 Me in the front doing all the work with Luke in the back taking pics ;)

Getaway to Vegas

We decided to switch fertility specialists and are seeing a new Dr. in Vegas.  Dr. Daneshmand.  He is great and is still giving us hope that IVF can still work for us.  Our previous Dr. did not know why it wasn't working and didn't give us much hope after 2 failed cycles.  I was ready for a second opinion and am glad that I made the switch.  We decided to go swimming with our cousins at their timeshare, The Cancun Resort, while we were down there for treatment.  We might as well have some fun too right?

Dogtown 9k

Love these girls!  We have become great friends running and working out together.  Anna and I decided to do the 100 mile challenge at our gym this month and I am proud to say we did it!  We ran 100 miles total this month!  Go us!  We ran the Dogtown 9k in Washington this morning and I know all the running this month has definitely helped improve our time :)
