This weekend Cory and I managed to accomplish a lot. I better get to cranking out these bucket list things before the summer fades away. The dog days of summer are upon us. We both got done with work and headed up to Spanish Fork with Stephen and Brittany. We also met some other couples up there. It was a late night getting up there but we managed to roast some hot dogs. I got really excited to cook the ones with cheese in the middle. Disgusting, I think not! Cory and I had these hammocks to sleep in and they were so much fun. We woke up in the morning and decided to pack up camp early. Saturday was as follows:
hurry home and shower
day at the Hogle Zoo
hurry home and nap
early release of the nitro circus
Yikes right? All of these things were so great. The zoo was fun and definitely one of those do this every five years kind of thing. Nitro Circus was ridiculous. The tricks they do are insane. I am a little worried because now Cory thinks that he wants to build ramps and jump off everything! I know that I am totally going to get roped into doing crazy things. Hope you had a great weekend too!

Life is so good over here today. I just had the most amazing weekend ever. I can't wait to share all of the fun adventures I had. A while ago I fulfilled #6 on the bucket list which is to make a mural. Have you ever seen in Princess Diaries when they fill up balloons with paint and throw darts at them? Alyssa and I decided to recreate this wonderful moment. It took us forever to figure out how to fill up the balloons and we made quite the mess trying to do it. Also we couldn't find any darts so we bought knives to throw at the poster board. It was legit...just sayin'.

Paragliding. Talk about an awesome birthday present from Cory. Our schedules were packed so we haven't been able to use our lessons until recently. It was quite the adventure, let me tell you. You get strapped up to these turtle backpack things and then take off as fast as you can down the hill. You do this over and over until you get your feet off the ground. At one point both Cory and I were 100 feet off the ground! Oh, did I mention that it is completely solo. It was so much fun. Props to Cory for a very fitting and inventive birthday present!
