Viva Bahamas!

So, being the most amazing husband that he is, Russell surprised me with a trip to the Bahamas!! It was so beautiful and we did so many fun things.. so sorry for all the pictures, we couldn't help but share. We will definitely be going back again someday.

Russell has heard me talk about wanting to swim with Dolphins a lot, so he decided to plan that into our trip. You'll see pictures of that in a little bit. Here is us hanging out with a couple of Sea Lions..they were so much fun!

If you know me, you know I have a passion for the ocean. I love everything about it...including sharks!! I'm the dork that watches shark week intently every year. They had a big tank of about 21 sharks, maxing out at about 14 feet long, and Russ and I decided we would go take a swim with them. There were Caribbean Reef Sharks and Nurse Sharks which are naturally non aggressive sharks but you never know. So as you can imagine it was a bit of a thrill being in the tank with them. Sorry the pictures suck, underwater disposable cameras aren't too nice but we are still waiting for the professional pictures that the diver took of us. I can cross this off my bucket list now.

This was the funnest thing we did in the Bahamas..trainer for a day with the Dolphins. We got to learn about them, feed them and swim with them for a whole day!! We had a blast, thanks baby for planning this!!

Here is the dolphin pushing me through the water by my foot. I felt like I was flying!!

Here the dolphins are swimming Russell through the pool by him holding onto their dorsal fins. We got to do this a few times and it was so cool. They are strong little buggers.

It was fun to see how much fun Russell had. If it wasn't for our 2 mortgages (stupid responsibility) we would be living in the Bahamas being dolphin trainers!!

Free Sectional!!!

Trish and I love Knights Mattress and Furniture here in Lehi, and after winning a couch from them we love them even more. We stopped by on Labor Day and entered our names into a raffle, but figured it was really just a gimmick to get our information. I entered and then Trish entered with her maiden name just in case we couldn't have two entries with the same last name. Yeah, well you see that couch on the top left of this picture...we totally won it. It is a $1000.00 sectional sofa that fits perfectly into our house and it didn't cost us a thing. How cool is that!

Sliding Rock

On Labor Day Nicki and Cam invited us to go to sliding rock. For those of you who aren't locals...sliding rock is a natural waterfall with smooth rocks so it makes for a great slide. It looks like it will do some damage to your bum, but no go. It made for a fun day!!!

Cam was the first to brave the slide. We sacrificed him first to make sure it wouldn't hurt our buns...and it didn't!

Saydee Wilcox

Saydee Wilcox is our new little Teacup Chihuahua. She's already grown a lot, but is still intsy wintsy... She will end up being 3 and a half pounds when she if full grown. She is super fun except for when she bites our fingers, noses, hair, toes, and ear lobes. She is a great addition to our family!
