This summer I decided to try something new..........Softball. I have never played before, (except in elementary school) and I thought it would be a fun experience. One of my favorite patient's dad asked me to join his business co-ed league, Aqua Clear. It was so much fun!!!! I asked a couple of girls at work to play with me (so I wasn't the only 1st timer) and it worked out great. We did really well (for D League co ed). We should have taken the championship, but we ended up taking second place! It ended up being alright, because we got free t-shirts!!! It was fun playing a competitive sport, and meeting some really cool people (who are REALLY good at softball) ! Hopefully we will get to play again!!

The Lake

Summer time is meant to be spent on the lake at all times!! i wish!! Over Labor day we had my little brother and sister down. They brought their friends and we went out to Gunlock......not the prettiest lake, but it sure beats the bacteria and crowds of Sand Hallow! We had the best time!!

My Little Sis's Engagement

My little sister is getting married!!! Holy Cow! (that means I am getting older!!) We really love the guy she is marrying, his name is Marlin and he is a EMT for Hurricane city, and a really down to earth guy. He will definitely be a great addition to the family. They are getting married on November 1st and guess who is planning the wedding.....ME! I feel like I just got done doing my own wedding! Oh well, I think it will be really fun to plan! I just got done taking their engagement pictures, Megan Andersen :) let me borrow her camera!! I think that we got some really good shots!!!

I don't have any pictures up of our puppies posted yet! We have two miniature pintchers and they are our little babies!! We love them so much! We got Duke when we were dating prior to getting married, Duke had puppies and we kept one of them, Daisy. They are both Red / Brown. Daisy is definitely a mommas girl and Duke is definitely a daddies boy! Daisy is quite a bit smaller than Duke, we had to "take away Dukes manhood" recently, and I don't think he has forgiven us yet!! But he sure is a nicer dog now!!! Aren't they cute!!

On our way to our family reunion at Laplotta Canyon near Durango, Colorado we got to stop at the four corners monument!! We have never been there and it was neat to be able to be in four places at the same time. You can tell we really dressed up for the occasion ugh??? It was such a long drive! We drove for seven hours, and camped there for 2 nights! Luckily we were able to make it back with a few inches of skin NOT covered in mesquito bites! It was pretty fun for a family reunion, this was Chases's first time meeting this side of the family, so I think it was a really good experience for him! My sister drove down with us.......and I should have many more pictures of her because I think she is getting engaged soon!!! I can not wait to help plan a wedding!!!

Our "Boring" 24th of July

Aren't some of the best days spent lazying around, with no set plans and absolutely nothing to do??? That was our 24th of July, we were so bored, but made the best of it! We relaxed, went to breakfast, went shopping (Yes, together!!) and went to the park, we sat under a tree in the shade, out of the heat and just talked. It was such a good day! Here are some of the pics from resting under the tree, neither of us even got ready for the day! (no makeup or hair done), we just kind of woke up and left the house. It was really good to just spend some quality time together! I think everyone needs those days!

The Perfect Uncle

Chase is seriously the perfect uncle. I have never seen a 24 year old male act so natural around kids. He was definetely meant for parenthood! (I wish I was too!) All his neices and nephew just adore him just as much as he adores them. Last night we visited Ashley and Jason (His sister and her husband) , Baby Hudson woke up crying and Chase went and got him from his crib, he rocked him and held him and decided it was his job to get him back to sleep, he was even searching his room for a teddy bear!! He gave him a bottle and entertained him until Ashley took over. He is amazing, I am seriously the luckiest wife in the entire world, he has an endearvering amount of patience and whole heartedly enjoys spending time with his neices and nephews. One day he will make the perfect father!

Summer Camping

One of the best parts about summer is camping!! This weekend we went out to pine valley with a gang of our friends! it was so beautiful and we had a bast!! The weather was perfect, it sprinkled cool rain in the night.....just enough to enjoy it; and the morning was overcast, so you were not waken up by the blazing hot sun. Good times....even better memories! I wish we could go camping all year round!

This last weekend we went out to Fresno, California for Chase's really good friend from high school Pete Hafen. He has been dating this girl (Sharmela) for like 4 years and we are so happy that they finally tied the knot. The got married on this beatuiful lake!!! It was actually a ways out of town, on the way were passed acres and acres of agriculture like grapes, oranges, apples, strawberries, etc. We decided to be a "little adventurous" and stole an orange off of a tree!! We have never had a orange tast that good!!! It was so juicy! The freshest taste ever! (I know in the picture I look pregnant...........but don't worry....its just the dress!!)

"Gothic" Friday the 13th!!

We have some pretty crazy friends to say the least, one of our friends decided to host a "friday the 13th" party.......with a gothic dress theme. (June 13). Before going, 4 of us thought, "I bet there will be a ton of people not dressed up gothic.....lets just wear something black and call it good". Nisha....was in a black summer dress, chase in a black and white pinstrip button up shirt, etc.......not at all very gothic!! When we got there every single person was dressed up gothic to the max!!! We were the only ones not dressed up, and there was like 50 people there!! Mckenzie (the host) took us into her bathroom and put black makeup on all of us to make things look a little better! As you can see from the pictures above.....we still didn't look gothic, just scary and still out of place!!!! Regardless we had a really fun night !! Thanks Mckenzie!

This weekend we went to Pepper's concert in Las Vegas. They played a poolside concert at the Hardrock Casino, they were absolutely amazing!! The best part about the whole concert was the people we were with, and we did not take one picture with them this weekend! I am so mad! We Have the best time with them everytime we do anything together. So here is a picture of us hangin out together, but it was not taken this weekend. I was never a big fan of Pepper, but I had heard a few songs and really liked them, I had no idea how cool they were in concert!!! What a fun night, we hope to see them perform many times in the future! Chase's parents let us use their time share in Vegas and it was so fun, the resort even had a lazy river! We hung out at the pool all morning, then we went to the Body Exhibition at the Tropicana. We all thought that was amazing as well, all the bodies are real ! The preservation of the human body is really immaculate! Hope your weekend was just a fun!!

Scuba Diving

I have been scuba certified for almost three years now, about as long as me and Chase have been together. This entire time I have been trying to convince Chase to get certified so we could go together, (it really is not a fun hobbie to do alone). Finally I got him to try it.........and he is completely addicted, probably more so than I am!!!! We took our first ocean trip together down in Cozumel, Mexico with Aqua Sports dive team. We had the time of our lives!! For anyone who has not been scuba diving, it is definitely something to try!!! Some of our friends went and we had an absolute blast, it is really an undescribable experience....that first breath under water in the ocean is something you can never forget. This is our first of many more exciting scuba trips!!!

The Pope Family

With sooooooo much family, we cherish the limited amount of time we get to spend with everyone. The "Pope" side of the family (nishas's adopted dads side) has so much fun we are hiking the narrows at Zions National Park. Even Joe, who was eight years old finished the whole 17 or 18 mile river hike. All of us were extremely sore for weeks, we never wanted to hike again! We walked away with bruises, open wounds, dehydration, but most of all....unforgettable family memories.


One of my fondest memories of Vegas.......I usually hate going to Vegas, I know there is so much to do in vegas, but I dont know......the city is really not for me; but this trip was so much fun!!! We stayed at the platinum hotel for the 2007 Supercross National Championship. We had perfect sunny weather, good drinks and good friends! I highly recommened this hotel to everyone!!

We are so happy to start our very own blog spot, we never thought we would be able to do something like this, but this seems like the perfect way to start a "diary" online. We never want to forget our memories that we have made and the many more yet to come. We love each other so much and that is something that will not ever change. Here's to making fun in the rain!!


Chase and Nisha
