What is this...free time???

Holy cow, I have never been as busy as I have been the last 6 weeks....
Getting back to school and swinging 20 credits has been so exhausting, but I'm so glad I did this! Three of my credits ended last week, so I am down to 17, and loving my free time.
In the past month and a half we've had a ton of fun though. Jared and I are in a Natural disaster's class together, and we went on a big field trip for it, to learn about volcanos, and land slides all within a few hours of Rexburg, it was really fun and a gorgeous day to go. We went to west yellowstone, and big springs, and Mesa falls. I Love Idaho!
 At the beginning of October over conference weekend, Jared had a mission reunion in Salt Lake. We were able to go down and stay with Jared's great Aunt Bonnie, and go to the reunion. It was great to meet people that spent so much time with Jared as a missionary. His mission president and his wife were so nice, though it was kind of sad because since all of Jared's companions were Mexican, none of them could come to reunion. Someday we will travel to Mexico and I will meet some of them!!
We have also been very spontaneous this semester. Since we got back, Jared has been BEGGING me to go to this windcave up past Driggs, and hike around and explore. I finally gave in and we went. It was a 4 mile hike up the mountain to the cave, and we sat in there for a while, and walked around, then 4 miles down. It was so gorgeous out, and the colors were amazing. The hike was kind of hard, I was so proud of myself that I finished it! (and I only cried once...when i slipped and my foot got soaking wet in the waterfall from the cave....haha). Jared was glad that he got to see the adventurous side of his wife, and we had a lot of fun. We stopped at the cute spud drive in theater too, no where else in the world do they have huge potato figurines....

Another spontaneous act this month, the week of midterms I woke up Thursday morning, ran to the living room and told Jared I had to get out of here. We ended up going to Pocatello (yes....so far away...) for the weekend, just got a hotel, ate out, and watched scary movies all weekend. They had a pool, hot tub, and a tv, it was one of the most relaxing times of my whole life! We are totally going to start that tradition now, every semester after midterms we are going for a weekend away to recharge!

We have also been trying to get into the Halloween spirit be watching lots of scary movies and going to haunted houses. A few weeks ago we went to the famous Dr. Slaughters in Idaho Falls. We went last year too, we had only been dating like a month!! This year though, we waited in line for like 2 1/2 hours, and it was the exact same scares as last year. Needless to say, I don't think we will be returning next Halloween. Last night we went to another place, the Haunts of Hidden Hollow. This is the first year it's open, and it was all outside in this field. We got chased by a car, horses, and a man in a chainsaw. Way better than Dr. Slaughters....
Finally, the last exciting thing going on, our frisbee team! We have been doing awesome. We had 5 regular season games, and we were 3-2 (we played the two undefeated teams two weeks in a row...and lost). Now the playoffs are going on. We are in the quarterfinals, and that is on tuesday, hopefully we will win and go to the semifinals on wednesday, where we will probably play the first team that kicked our trash....and hopefully we can redeem ourselves! It's been so fun playing and improving. Last week's game we played in 23 degree weather, you have to be pretty good  to play frisbee in a winter coat and a ton of other layers =]. I'm really glad Jared talked me into joining the team, and I can't wait until next year when more of our family will be here to play with us!!

Well we go to Colorado in 3 weeks, after we go to Peter and Tara's wedding in Salt Lake, which we are very excited for. It's about time they got married....I cannot wait to go home and see my family, it's been quite a while! and I miss my dog.....
