I have The Best Job
I really do have the best job. As an Event Planner for a scrapbook company I get to travel to some really amazing places and see some of the most beautiful parts of this country. O yeah and not to mention we always eat at the yummiest places. The only downside is that Jim is not with me to enjoy these wonderful places. I guess that is what Vacation is for right?
Last week I was in San Antonio Texas and Washington D.C.

This was in my room in San Antonio----it was all chocolate YUMMY

Remember the Alamo

Washington D.C. with the Capitol behind me
We took a boat ride from Alexandria VA to Georgetown Washington DC. It was so pretty!

Climb Every Mountian
Climb every mountain, search high and lowFollow every byway, every path you know.Climb every mountain, ford every stream,Follow every rainbow, 'til you find your dream!A dream that will needall the love you can give,Every day of your lifefor as long as you live.Climb every mountain, ford every stream,Follow every rainbow, 'til you find your dream!
From the Sound of Music Music by Rodgers and Hammerstein

Our friend Danielle was in town this weekend so we decided to go hiking on Friday night. We hiked Battlecreek Canyon up to the falls and continuing to the trail junction for the Great Western Trail. The view was beautiful and the weather was perfect for a summer evening hike.

My husband loves to hike. If he had his way he would hike all year long and travel all over the world to hike. I on the other hand like to hike also but in a different way than Jim. My idea of a fun hike is a nice hike that isn't too strenuous and takes only a couple of hours. On this particular hike it it is a steady climb of 2.46 miles to where we stopped to turn around. I think Jim could have ran! Hiking is his happy place and I love that about him. The funny thing is I can run 5 miles no problem but ask me to hike 5 miles and it is a struggle. Funny how we are all different. My goal this year is to hike to the top of Timpanogos Mountain. Jim said we are going to have to do a few more practice hikes before he takes me to the top. I can't wait.

Last Saturday Tasha and I went golfing with Cale at Wasatch Golf Course in Midway, UT. It was such a pretty day and so nice to be riding around in the golf cart. I miss going golfing and lately have been wanting to go hit some balls. Jim surprised me for my Birthday in April and took me golfing, which was a blast. I hadn’t been in a long time. Anyway Saturday was perfect the weather was nice and we saw some neat wildlife.

Alaska Cruise 2007

I just returned from a 7 day cruise to Alaska. It was amazing and beautiful. I have added some photos from my trip below. I went for work and was not able to bring Jim which was a bummer. I will go back with him someday. I loved Alaska...we have beautiful mountains here in Utah but Alaska has majestic mountains. It was my first time on a cruise and I am hooked. I would recommend seeing Alaska the way we did. You can see so much and eat yummy food!
