Only a couple weeks left here...

Jared is a little sad this week, his lacrosse season is over. They had their last/championship game on Friday night, and Jared scored 5 goals!! He had a lot of fun playing, and wants to help start a league in the fall, and if they play, Jared and I are going to co-coach, because every team is required to have a girl coach, and I've sat through enough games that I know the rules pretty much backwards and forwards, and it would be so much fun!

Jared has also been really involved in the Special Olympics Council for the school this semester, and on Saturday they put on a dance for all of the local kids, so we went and helped set up everything and stayed and played games and danced, and it was so fun. Jared was so sweet to all the kids, and everyone had fun dancing with him.
This week I've been feeling pretty sick....so I haven't done much, Jared has taken care of me, and the apartment, and has been so kind to me, I am so lucky!!
Then tonight we just got back from this ropes course. It was too windy to climp the course, but we were able to swing from 30 feet in the air, it was a lot of fun. Our friend Ross went off, and something about the falling and the adrenaline made his jaw lock, and he couldnt close his mouth for like 10 minutes! We were about ready to take him to the hospital when it snapped back into place, but it was so scary!

There's Jared swinging                                                    

And me swinging!
Tonight Jared registers for classes in the fall, and I register on the 16th, we are really excited, and are coordinating our schedules well. Next week is finals, so Jared has been doing a lot of work, but the week after that we are home free! I keep having sweet dreams of waking up in North Carolina, I am so excited for it. But before we can leave we have to move all of our stuff into our new apartment, which is conveniently located right next door (literally) to us, but it is still a bit of work. I'm alright with it though, it gives me a project to do to pass the time! I can't believe I'm saying it, but I cannot wait to get back into school, I'm gong a bit stir crazy...


Fourth of July

This weekend was amazing!! We were able to go down to Salt Lake to my Grandma Bunch's house where my family was waiting. This was so awesome because I have been missing them like crazy. We met them in downtown Salt Lake and got to walk around temple square (seems like we've been there a lot lately).  We went to the HUGE new Deseret Book and walked around and took some pictures. That night we went back to Grandma's house and just hung out, and watched a movie.

Saturday my siblings and Jared and I really wanted to go swimming, it was beautiful, and we just couldn't sit around Grandma's house, so Skyler, Nicole, Lance, Jared and I took off to find Utah Lake. Well 2 minutes after leaving, the GPS just would NOT find Utah Lake, so Jared selected "Silver Sands Beach" and we thought we would explore a bit. A half an hour later we pulled up to none other that the Great Salt Lake. It reeked of dead fish/birds/bugs you name it, but we parked and headed out to the salty sea. The water wasn't actually bad, it didn't smell, only the beach did, and you could completely float on top of the water without doing anything because the salt was so dense, it was actually really fun...until we got out, the water dried, and we were all crusted over with salt....But now we can all say that we've swam in the Salt Lake, and had a ton of fun doing it =]That night we had BBQ and fireworks with most of my Dad's side of the family, so Jared got to meet a ton more people who he is now related to.

Sunday we went to visit my Mom's sister Laurie, who lives about 20 minutes from my Grandma. My Aunt and her husband Mark have been married 13 years and were told they would never have kids, when 9 months ago she showed up pregnant! She was due in 10 days, so she was about to pop, and it was so nice to see her. Well 20 minutes after our family left, her water broke! Nothing like a nice loud visit from the Bunch family to put you into labor....so she ended up having the baby just a couple hours later...a 10.11 pound baby none the less. The poor little boy (Asher) even got his arm broken on his way out, so his poor mom who has been waiting 13 years to hold her little baby can barely touch him, and they put him in a little sling!
Monday morning we left and picked up Peter and Tara from Salt Lake, and headed for Rexburg, but stopped at Willard Bay on the way. We rented a jet ski for half the day, and it was so much fun! The water was warm and the beach was pretty, and jet skiing was perfect on the choppy water. That is definitely a place to go back to, and the rental was even pretty cheap!
Now we are back in Rexburg, and I finally got my wedding pictures. Here is a public link to those ( http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=186824&id=515052571&l=c70678ba09 ) so I've been sifting through those, and ordering thank you cards and prints, its so crazy that it's been 5 1/2 weeks already. We also signed our contract for our apartment through the next 6 months, so I feel a lot more at ease, and like we have a home.
Next time we go to Salt lake is just in 4 weeks! We both cannot wait for North Carolina!
