catching up & saying goodbye

last summer in D.C. Grant came across this gem; a Schwinn Suburban. we brought it all the across the country to fix it up.  so this beauty... was my birthday present. i love it. i'm trying to come up with a name for it. for her. because she TOTALLY deserves a name. grant spent hours taking apart EVERY piece and cleaning it up. it was so fun to pick out a paint color and buy the basket. unfortunately... the weather has been so annoying and i haven't had the chance to ride much. but i will love coming back to ride her more.

recently we visited steve. here is a picture for those who haven't seen him in a while, i decided the pictures of him do not do justice. he doesn't look nearly as big as he really is now.

bff Jessica Leigh ran the Salt Lake Marathon. what an inspiring place to be, we waited at the finish line and it was just so cool to be apart of. i can't believe how LONG a marathon is. we are so proud of you jess!!!

tonight is our last night in orem for a while. we head out tomorrow morning for a serious voyage. its time to get our harry potter on. yahoo!

I love the bike! Has Grant ever told you about when David and him roomed together and went through a huge phase of restoring bikes? Isn't it the best to have handy husbands?

Will you guys be going back to Provo this fall? I sure hope so because I really want to get together. We can all ride our bikes together. :)

Also, we can't believe how HUGE Steve is! Who is taking care of him? Wes? David always tells people that he owned "part" of an alligator since he paid a portion for him. He was freaking out when he saw how huge he is.

Hey :) So you must have lost service when we were talking the other day, hope you got there okay! It was so fun talking, I swear we could just talk forever about all of the random stuff we were talking about, and more. ha. Anyway, just wanted to say HI and that I love you!
P.S. I still love your bike, way to go Grant!!
